Editorial Reviews

Hope Tarr
"Move over EL James. Cecilia Tan's Slow Surrender is sinfully sweet and sublimely erotic. As with sipping a superb single-malt scotch served neat, you'll savor the slow burn as it builds to a deliciously unanticipated ... climax."
Lisa Renee Jones
"Seductive fun not to be missed! Cecilia Tan will make all your sexy wishes come true!"
RT Book Reviews on SLOW SURRENDER
"4 1/2 stars! This is the BDSM novel all the other millionaire Dom heroes want to star in. Tan takes an overused trope and turns it into a dreamy, erotic fantasy that draws the reader down the rabbit hole along with Karina. The sex scenes are lush and erotic without attempting to outdo the last BDSM novel out there, and James' struggle to trust Karina enough to give up even an iota of his rigid control is palpable. Readers will be clamoring for the next book in the series."

I have to admit, the things that happened at the end of this book, I did not see happening and that is what made it enjoyable for me to read. Karina goes off to London to find James and ends up meeting Damon, who is in the same secret society that James is in. He does his best to seduce her while she is searching for him. Some of the things that Damon pulled, I couldn't quite believe but I guess when he is desperate to keep Karina for himself, he will do anything to change her mind. When she finally does find James, things don't go according to plan. When she finally manages to capture his attention again for longer than five minutes, that's when all the shockers and surprises came out. I never did find out why exactly Damon had to bow down to Vanette at the end but I loved it. I just hope the last book has a satisfying ending.

Slow Seduction. Cecilia Tan Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews. So we pick up the story with Karina determined to trace James, but with little to go on she's clutching at straws. The LL grapevine says he's in England ,so she jumps at the chance of a summer job in the art world in London. There she meets Damon, member of the English branch of the club in US that James took Karina to – and the one he abandoned her at. Not a happy memory for her, but she's willing to re renter that world if it helps her find James. Damon clearly wants her for himself though – openly says so, and isn't put off that she's told him about James, and her mission to find him, without revealing anything other than his club name. He agrees to help her, convinced that he can change her mind about him in the meantime...so she enters a world of Submission, Service and Secrets. Karina didn't seem quite as sparky in this book, maybe its just that the magic is between her and James, and though she showed her mettle to Damon and clearly intrigued him, it wasn't as fun as when she was with James. Damon- on the surface helping, but we know he only wants her to find James convinced he will leave her again, leaving the way open for him. He's an odd man, very arrogant in ways, very in love with himself, and yet when it comes to Karina, like James he's fallen for her magic, the spark that makes her so different form the obedient, placid ladies he's used to. Then there's Vannette who has a senior position in club management. She seemed very cold at first I thought, and yet when Karina needed help and advice she was there and spot on. Through her search Karina meets lots of other characters too, some funny and quirky, some from James past, and more of the LL fans. They crop up in a number of different, minor plots that end up joining and being connected. Its like that six degrees of separation thing again :) I thought it was really clever the way Cecilia has taken what seem like disparate events and characters, and yet woven them into a thread that winds round the journey, and brings it full circle. Once again there's lots of erotic sensuality without actual sex, and after all the books where its sex every other page, its such a treat to get an author who's clearly put a lot of thought into how to portray sensuality and passion, without just giving us constant, in your face, boring after a while sex. That's what happens when we get the same thing, page after page after page, it gets dull, the reader switches off and it loses its edge. I really enjoyed that Cecilia has taken a different direction with this book. When she does do sex, then it becomes something to be treasured, something special and revered, a magic moment between two lovers, more than just another quick shag, and fits the novel perfectly. The ending – wow, what a lot of surprises and revelations, and once again I’ve a truckload of questions I need answering. Of course, as has become almost obligatory in contemporary erotica, there's a semi cliffhanger ending. Semi because thankfully Cecilia gives us a glimpse of what's to come at the end, and its positive so it left me wanting more, wanting it now but at least feeling positive, and not that awful empty feeling so many cliffhanger endings give me. Part three should be out this autumn :) Stars: four and a half again. Fabulous read. ARC supplied by Netgalley

I loved both books. I'm dissappointed that I have to wait until August for the next one but I'll pre-order it. Karina & James have been a joy. This is one of the best BDSM series I've read. This is one of those books that you' ll be thinking about long after you've finished reading it.

I loved both books. I totally enjoy the character of Karina, her spirit, kindness, supportive nature, etc. She is perfect for James. She will love, protect, support, and not judge his unusual likes and needs in the bedroom. James has to learn to trust her. However, given the road he must travel one can understand his behavior. I cannot wait for Sweet Satisfaction because he has mucho package. Who is the wife?
