Overview

Raffaello (Rafe) Palazzo takes what he wants with no regrets. Arianna (Ari) Lynn Harlow has led a charmed life until tragedy strikes her family. He's looking for a no-emotions attached mistress, she's looking for redemption. They are not a pair that should ever work, but undeniable attraction and devastating tragedies bring them together in the city by the bay where he fights to keep their relationship nothing more than an enjoyable way to meet his needs, and she battles to not lose herself in him. Spending time with Ari starts cracking the hard shell that Rafe has built around his heart, but he denies the affect she has on him until it's too late to stop the inevitable conclusion that their relationship is headed for.

Rafe once believed in happily ever after, coming from a large Italian family. He's got the Midas touch, since every endeavor he tries turns to gold. That all ends when his wife walks out the door and leaves him blindsided. His devastation quickly turns to steel when he decides no woman will fool him again. From that point on he treats relationships as nothing more than business transactions where both party's come out mutually benefited.

Just when Ari has sunk to the lowest she's ever been she finds an ad in the paper announcing a job that's too good to be true. It turns out she's right. She makes it through the intense rounds of interviews only to find out the job is for a mistress to the powerful Rafe Palazzo, owner of Palazzo Enterprises. Rafe gives her a day to think about whether she wants the position or not, and she's sent on her way, only to find out her mother's near-terminal position has taken a turn for the worse. Her mom's only in the hospital because Ari messed up, and her mother's the one who paid the price. Is Rafe her savior, or will he take her with him straight to the depths of hell?

FANEFFINGTASTIC!!!!

I know I've said this before about another one of Melody's books... but it bares saying again... maybe twice... HOLY EFF YOU SEE KAY!!! I am astonished! ...it was freakin' hot hot hot!!! My husband had to pry my Kindle out of my cold, sleeping hands last night and when I woke up, I said, "No, can't... put... down!" Oh the angst, the turmoil, and the clash between our main characters! This is definitely not for the faint of heart.
www.goodreads.com - Teressa Allshouse
Half way through the book I Realized that Christian grey just got replaced by fanf*&kingtastic RAFE!!!! Absolutely loved fifty shades of grey however surrender is FANF&^KINGTASTIC!!!!

Melody Anne brought life to the pages of the book and developed an heroine, ARI, as a strong female not going to do anything that goes against her self respect, no matter the consequences. Rafe, is Dr Jeckle/Mr Hyde, just when you think he's going to tear down the wall he builds it higher.
www.goodreads.com - Virginia Rosario
surrender yourself to this book, because it was AMAZING!!!

I was anxiously waiting for the release of this book, and now I am anxiously waiting to see how this series develops, because it was so worth the wait.

You will hate Rafe, then you will love him.. then you will be frustrated with him... then you will love him again. I cannot wait for book 2!!

    I like alpha males but somone needs to explain to this author what that is. This man is totally obnoxious, insulting and mean. There is nothing appealing about him and I've read books with dark heros. It's totally unrealistic that she can be attracted to this jerk who is a true woman hater. Will not buy the sequel or anything else by this author. The writing was not good.

    Amazing.

    This book just like so many others by melody was exceptional. Especially if you love a poweful alpha male, and a wonderful woman who speaks up for herself. Arianna and Rafe are extremely great characters, characters unlike any of the other's in a dom/sub relationship I've read before. I hope the next book shows her proving to him everyone isn't going to heart him and not everyone is Sharron. Excellent book Melody :)

    Rape!,,

    Really the authors other books have been great but this book does nothing but demean women and promote RAPE which is what he does to her. I love books with alpha males but this guy is mean nasty and hateful...someone needs to castrate him.i hope in the following book she stays strong and has him put in jail but i will never know because i wont waste my money where the girl is treated like worthless trash.

    I'm not gonna lie, when this author first came out I thought her books were amateurish and poorly edited. And when I read the premise of the book, I thought, "Great, another 50 Shades copycat!" Just for the record, this book is NOT. It's not a copycat and it's very well written. In fact, I dare say it's awesome. I only wish we could've read the whole story in one book. I'm not sure I can wait til July for the follow up book.

    I've read better stories

    This book is boring and seems to drag on forever. It's the same thing over and over, he wants her, she says no. The whole story is very unrealistic and nobody speaks like that anymore. Not one of my favorites, I can't seem to even finish this one.

    Good read.

    I like ms Anne work. This book was interesting and believable. I thought the male lead was honest. The female lead came across as ungrateful to him and gullible with her friends. The story is 189 pages x 3 because the page numbers do not change each time. The romance was great. This was an alpha male. I am upset that the story just abruptly ends. The next book will be out may 31, 2013. If this story does not continue in some way,i probably will not buy any more of her books.

    Good read. Roller coaster of emotions. I really, really, don't like getting to the last page and know the second in "the series" when we don't know it is a series, is not out until the end of May. I read a book a day, or every other day. Difficult to keep track of a release date.

    Surrender by Melody Anne

    Awesome! Can I have Rafe.....He is the man for me, knew there was a reason why I did not rush into reading this booking. This was a fantastic journey going through this experience with Rafe and Ari. Once again Melody Anne has outdone herself and even though she left me hanging I look forward to the next book in the series. Job well done.

    Excellent everything!

    From the first syllable to the last period I was enthralled with the journey of Rafe and Ari. They come from divergent places, but they both have soul deep pain they are hiding. While Rafe wants to control all things around him; Ari has no control over the circumstances surrounding her. I am not going to say anything that will spoil the book for those who haven't read the book. I'm just going to say this is a fabulous read.

    Surrender is scorching hot and will leave you panting for more.

    Surrender is scorching hot and will leave you panting for more.  If you want to know what to read after The Fifty Shades of Grey this is it!




    I read this series last year as it came out.  Let me tell you I just about died after Surrender waiting for Submit.  This book is that good and it is FREE right now so you have nothing to lose.  Before writing this review I went back and re-read Surrender and it was just as good as it was the first time and I could not go to bed last night until I started Submit.  I had to see what Ari was going to do again even though I knew what she was going to do.  I had to read it again just to be sure :).




    Rafe is a very alpha dominant male who puts an add in the paper for job that sounds too good to be true.  His job description is very vague and Ari is intrigued.  It pays quite a bit of money and she needs the money to pay for her mother's medical bills.  Ari is very sweet, highly intelligent, and witty.  In the beginning she may seem a little timid but boy does she let Rafe have it.  He is thrown off balance because no one has ever talked back to him and told him no.  She becomes his biggest challenge and he goes above and beyond what he has ever done to have a woman.  Even after all of his hard work she still says NO!.  I absolutely love Arianna.  She is spunky and I was on her side 100 percent.




    Melody Anne does an amazing job with character development. Arianna is a girl after my own heart and let me tell you after I read this book the first time I hated Rafe.  I had read all of Melody Anne's Billionaire Bachelors Series and was super excited about this series and then I met Rafe and wanted to scream.  By the time you get to the fourth book Scorched you are totally in love with him and realize that he was just scared of getting hurt again.  This is a series that at the end I wanted to cry that it was over.  My friends and I were hooked from the moment we finished Surrender.




    Surrender will take you on a wild ride and leave you one-clicking Submit as soon as possible.

    I started reading this book and had the feeling that I had read

    I started reading this book and had the feeling that I had read it before, then I realized its an awful lot like the shades of grey books  (except I liked those books). This story is terrible!!
    One of the scenes had me thinking rape, another abuse (not physical but emotional), come on! "I can't wait to break your will"  I own your place of employment, your mothers home and
    flower shop that you had to sell to pay your moms medical bills so be my whore or loose everything......
    So much more I could say against this book but I'm done wasting my time with it.

    This book was terrible. The author continues to point out rafe's

    This book was terrible. The author continues to point out rafe's redeaming qualities but as the story progresses she just turns him into more of a monster. This book misleads you to believe that the male lead will grow as he discovers real love, but all that really happens is he continuosly demeans and mistreats this girl and then blackmails her into being his sex slave and it ends. Do not waste your time. This is not a romance it is just a continuous display of abuse and cruel manipulations.

    Arianna Harlow has had a pretty good life.  She was a good stude

    Arianna Harlow has had a pretty good life.  She was a good student and a good daughter.  Then tragedy strikes and she is left trying to figure out how she is going to provide for her mother and herself.




    Raffaello Palazzo has been burnt and burnt bad.  Since his nasty divorce he has only wanted a woman to take care of his needs and be his mistress.  He always gets what he wants and he has decided he wants Ari.




    Ari is running out of funds to take care of her mother and her self.  She has applied for jobs and hasn’t had any luck so far.  Then she spots an ad in the paper that sounds too good to be true.  So she goes to the interview with Raffaello Palazzo.  Wow she thinks he is pretty attractive man…wait did he just say the job was to be his mistress????




    I really enjoyed this book!  It keeps you on edge the entire time you are reading it.  I am so excited to read the other books in this series!  If you like a hot steamy read with some suspense in there as well you def want to check this out!  Great job Melody Anne!
