Overview

Top psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.

In Drakker and Arlo's world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can't. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.

Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He's frustrated by romantic Arlo's claims of her innocence. Even when pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.

Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan's fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?

This wildly captivating novel blew me away with the vivid and oh-so-real descriptions.  Heat and spice vie with action, intrigue, and betrayal in this one of a kind novel.  Havens ramps up to a very action packed and suspenseful ending that leaves you wanting & needing to know where the series will go next.  This is definitely a SciFi/dystopian tale like no other.  The well-developed history of the world puts everything in context.  Readers not only know what’s happening now, but how it came to happen.  The various factions and organizations are brought forward in a very complex yet revealing manner.  I really appreciated the prologue of this novel.  It really set things up for me, allowing the story to take off from there. The variety of different peoples that we meet are not only well-developed as races but are completely unique.  Havens highlights the differences between them, but let’s their similarities bring them together.  Top this off with a fantastic cast of characters and you have something that you won’t soon be able to forget.  The contrasts between the main characters adds a great deal of conflict and depth to the story.  It also packs an emotional punch and makes them seem even more real. This is so much more than just a racy story, even though it definitely is that.  I would give anything to be as imaginative and articulate as this author.  I definitely can’t wait to read more of her work in the future. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Read from November 24 to 25, 2014 Book Info  Kindle Edition, 287 pages Published March 15th 2014 by Liquid Silver Book ASIN B00J1RDFUU edition language English series Psychic Menage #1 setting Southwest , 4860 (United States)  other editions (4) Source:EArc from review coordinator/author in exchange for honest review Book Buy Links  Amazon  B&N  BOOK SYNOPSIS On the run, branded a traitor by her government, Fay Avalon has to depend on three brothers for shelter. Sinful Surrender is Book 1 of Houston Havens’ new romance series, Psychic Ménage. Why be tempted by one man’s seduction when you can be loved by three?  Top psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind-traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.  In Drakker and Arlo’s world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can’t. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.  Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He’s frustrated by romantic Arlo’s claims of her innocence. When pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.  Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan’s fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?  Content: Hot, D/S Elements, Anal Play, Anal Intercourse, Ménage, Polyamory, Voyeurism, Light BDSM  My Thoughts Intense in every way and the explicit sex scenes dominate the story but do not overshadow or lessen the impact of the main story line. I will warn anyone who does not enjoy intense, descriptive, sometimes raunchy sex as there is a lot of it throughout this erotic tale. The theme is one that is not enjoyed by all romance readers but I promise even though your eyes might blister there is a good story hidden amidst all the sexiness. This is a mixture of romance, politics, action, dystopian, sci-fi adventure and paranormal elements all combined into a cohesive story that will excite you as well as intrigue you with the possibilities it presents to those who enjoy exploring their sexual fantasies. The intenseness that permeates a lot of the interaction between Fay and the 3 Aban brothers is seductive as well as at times very endearing, Arlo-Logan-and Drakker are the perfect combination of potent masculinity to offset Fay’s femininity as each man brings something different to the unique relationship that all four of them find themselves engaging in.. I found myself at first intimidated by the information overload to set the stage for the story at the beginning but after starting to read that quickly was the furthest thing from my mind as the fascinating events dragged me into the book completely and engrossed me with all the different elements that wove together to create an exciting tale. Good thing is that Phantom Desire book 2 is available to read already as this ends with a definite cliffhanger that demands you to grab the next one to find out what happens next!

I read sci fi, paranormal erotica more than any other genre. While the storylines and origins of the people and other worldly may change, the basis seems to stay relatively the same. Not so here. NOT AT ALL. I was impressed and intrigued from the moment I read the first page. I actually thought I wasn't going to be able to understand the intricacies of this new world(s). Instead, the story pulled me in. I was there. I could see their worlds. I wanted to be Fay (still do if truth be told) read a bit and tell me you don't! All of this is to say that I really thought this book to be not only a great story, it was sweet, naughty and hot all at the same time. Oh and did I mention descriptive?? HA wait and see! I might also add that for those of you ladies who think Fifty Shades of Gray was hotness, I can assure you that was a starter book. Enjoy!

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle: *Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review --Actual rating 3.5 Skulls Sinful Surrender is the first book in a new series set in a highly thought out dystopian society. There are multiple groups of people - those living underground, those living in the post-apocalyptic aboveground, those living in space, the meshing of all of the above, etc - each at war with the other in some capacity, and each trying to do what we would all do. Survive. Houston did a wonderful job of outlining each of these in a glossary at the beginning of the book so that when the action started, readers weren't confused and set up the world beautifully. I found this extremely helpful, and the world building was incredibly unique and fascinating. Our heroine, Fay, is a Dirt Dweller. Living underground in a society where sexuality is illegal for anything other than procreation, and even then, coming only as part of a lottery to curb overcrowding. She's also a mind traveller, and knows, through her psychic travels, that she's not like most Dirt Dwellers. She's a sensual human being. Therefore, when the opportunity arrises for her to leave her home and travel among the Airbornes she jumps at it despite it being forbidden.  Our heroes, Arlo, Drakker, and Logan, are a group of Airborne brothers. Logan is the leader of the Airbornes, and his brothers each are each a compliment to his personality. When Fay is discovered by Arlo and Drakker, she is brought back to their home and interrogated. Not only to find out if she's a spy for the Dirt Dwellers, but also as sort an audition to be their wife.  What did I love about the book? I really enjoyed the range of characters and the vastly unique world building. I also liked the action and the intrigue.  What stopped me from giving it more than 3.5 skulls? A lot of the sexual encounters felt like sex on the page for the sake of hot, erotic, sex on the page to me and actually overshadowed the plot in places. The other thing that bothered me a bit was the quickness with which they all fessed to their feelings. All except Logan. Within one scene of Fay regaining consciousness, Arlo had a thought that he could love her, and before they even had determined if her being there was nefarious, Drakker had asked her to consider being the brothers' wife. And lastly was the terminology. There were some biological terms used in sexy situations that just weren't sexy to me, but, of course, every reader is different... So, bottom line, would I recommend Sinful Surrender? Yes. If you're looking for a highly erotic and awesomely unique new Sci-Fi, this would be a good one to pick up. It's steamy and the underlying plot thread is compelling. My only suggestion would be to go into it expecting the fact paced 'insta-love' romance and sexual encounters of a para-erotic novella instead of a full length book. I know that other readers will probably absolutely love this book, I just couldn't personally give it more than 3.5 skulls.

Once in a while, a book draws you so deeply and completely into it that when you finish and return to your reality, a feeling of loss stays with you. You find yourself thinking about this reality and the people you met, wondering what they would be like if they were real? If you could see and feel and touch the characters with your hands the way you wish.... I am in awe of the creativity, imagination and genius this author has to have. She was able to create not only a physical world with its many layers but the societies that sprung up within those physical boundaries, tied together by a shared (and sometimes hidden) history that impacts all that must happen going forward. She created a current reality so enticing that this reader is eager to return but she also created a history for each facet of her world and has intertwined them in a complex and compelling way. Can the characters discover the truth of their past in order to have a future? This question occasionally runs through my mind as there is a mystery in this story that wants to be solved and teases the reader even when away from the book. Logan, Drakkar and Arlo came alive to me as I read this book. They became people who's lives I care about. I followed along on their search for the truths they needed to survive. I marveled at the depth of their love for each other as brothers and their ability to understand each other's mind and actions, even preparing what to say when one (predictably) started a conversation about trust, betrayal or Fay. Fay seemed to be the one thing they had difficulty agreeing on, perhaps even the one thing that could drive them apart. No matter what they said or felt, they all knew she was somehow a part of their shared destiny.  I hate reviews with spoilers so I can't say much else other than I LOVED this book, these characters and this interesting world. I want to go back and find out what happens next! I want the next book SOON, please.
