    3.5 - 4 Stars Josephine Nehr's only goal since being introduced

    3.5 - 4 Stars

    Josephine Nehr's only goal since being introduced to the BDSM lifestyle was to get an experienced Dom to consent to help her conquer her issues with men ... until she falls in lust with Ted Basel, co-owner of The Carlyn and a renowned Dominant whom others refer to as The Disciplinarian—the Dom other Doms send their hard-to-train and bratty subs to for lessons.

    Jo is a Dom’s worst nightmare—headstrong, reckless, and her bratty antics have been an ongoing bone of contention between the partners. So when Ted discovers she’s signed the “Full Monty” release form—a fact that has the resident sadists circling—he knows that between her bravado and smart mouth, she’ll be worked over pretty good if he doesn’t intervene. So, after thanking Jo for giving him carte blanche, Ted hauls her up to the rodeo suite for a ride that rapidly becomes a trip of epic proportions with kinky detours galore. And what starts out as a battle of wills between the reluctant Dom and bratty sub soon becomes something much more intimate. Until long buried secrets threaten to destroy them both …  

    The third installment in Riley Murphy's Trust In Me series, Required Surrender is an erotic romance story about a woman exploring the D/s lifestyle in an attempt to conquer her issues with men. In the end, I had mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I was entertained—the author definitely knows how to tell an erotic tale—but on the other, it didn’t quite meet my expectations. The story had intensity, heat, and the kink was imaginative, but there were certain aspects that just didn’t work for me. For one—and no offense to the author because it’s clear in the story as to why—the whole "virgin" card being played throughout this genre is growing tiresome. 

    Jo was stubborn, profanely bratty and had a whole world of pain buried deep inside her. A true submissive, she fired all of Ted’s primal instincts to dominate, and together they had great chemistry. But here’s another issue that I had: she confided in Ted about the event that led to her issues with men, but couldn’t tell him the issues she had with her mother? Frankly, those paled in comparison to the event that led to them and it just didn’t make sense to keep this detail from him. Her self-loathing just seemed out of character for the strong, feisty woman we were first introduced to in Reluctant Surrender.

    I also had difficulty with how Ted treated Jo throughout the last half of the story. One, he refused to accept her for who she was without judgment. He repeatedly blamed her for what he perceived as lies, even though he had serious issues of his own and had been less than forthcoming with her all along. Hello pot, meet kettle. As it were, Jo didn’t tell him the whole truth—semantics I know, lying by omission—and when Ted asked her something directly that she didn’t want to share, she simply evaded the question. But by far, my biggest gripe was with the scene at the club towards the end of the story when Ted, in a fit of anger, completely loses control, publicly degrading and humiliating Jo. BAD Dom! I know she loved and wanted him more than anything, but after that scene I would have kicked Ted to the curb both figuratively and literally. At the very least, Ted needed to do some serious groveling. Regardless of my issues with the storyline, overall, Required Surrender is a sexy, enjoyable read of desire, self-discovery, and love with light to moderate BDSM and a satisfying HEA.

    Oh Jo and Ted, Jo and Ted, Jo and Ted. *sigh* I was waittttting

    Oh Jo and Ted, Jo and Ted, Jo and Ted. *sigh* I was waittttting for this book since meeting Jo and Ted in Reluctant Surrender and I was so not disappointed. Jo is frigging awesome, and there was just no way the average guy was going to be able to Top her. She's so fun and bold and in your face, I couldn't wait to see the sparks fly between her and Ted. And fly they did. It's like an epic dance battle for dominance as Jo attempts to Top from the bottom and Ted tries to protect his heart. This book has one of my all time BDSM scenes EVER I don't like spoilers, but keep your eyes peeled for a card game >.<
    *fans self* *glugs ice water* *fans self moar* I loved all three Surrender books, but I think this is my favorite (and that's saying something, because Colin from book two one of my favorite heroines ever and I didn't think I would even love a couple more than her and Ethan!) These two just have so much push and pull and thick tension that I couldn't stop reading. It was like being caught in a web. So, anyhow, if you like BDSM for realz, I would be very surprised if this didn't land on your "Favorites" shelf.
