Description: After walking in on her boyfriend with another woman, Devon Reid decides to seek solace in the small Californian town she’s often visited on vacation. Instead, she finds herself consumed by a dark, mysterious man who sets her ablaze with a simple look. Devon has always been the good girl, but Zach’s touch turns her into something primal, especially when he persuades her to give up control. But while Zach can make her burn, he also runs hot and cold, seducing Devon one moment and turning her away the next. When Devon starts her new job at Phyrefly Aviation, she learns that “Zach” is actually Zachariah St. Brenton, founder and CEO of the massive corporation. And while Devon knows she should keep things with Zach strictly professional, his overwhelming magnetism makes it impossible to stay away…
REVIEW: This is a temping start to the Surrender To Temptation Series. Surrender to Temptation is the first installment of a story that spreads (pun intended) over a series of books/chapters. The premise of the story is one that we have come quite familiar with, rich dominant male finds the not so rich sweet and submissive female.
Don’t let that already saturated theme fool you. Surrender to Temptation is a well written story that will open your mind to a whole new level of control and submission. Devon is a twenty four year old woman who hasn’t had an easy life, her latest personal drama has left with a bitter taste and since she does not know how to handle it she decides to leave it all behind including her job and her now ex boyfriend.
Zach is the CEO of a big corporation. He is wealthy, sexy, dangerous and very kinky. He takes his work serious and his kinky life style just as much. When he meets Devon she is vulnerable, she has just broken up with her boyfriend and feels like the world is falling on her shoulder. He immediately see something in her and that’s when he starts his hunt. Devon meets Zach in a small town restaurant, after leaving her life behind along with her cheating boyfriend. Devon finds Zach enthralling, sexy, and mysterious. A look and she melts, a word from him and she submits a demands and she is lost.
I think there is a lot of promise in this series, what I hope it that it doesn’t turn into another cliche. So far I like Zach, he is rich, demanding, controlling and he has a very kinky side. I like his roughness. Devon is funny, vulnerable, and has a spunky personality, I like the contracts of these two characters. I want to see Devon becoming another woman, one that isn’t afraid of her desires and isn’t afraid of exploring her needs. I’ll continue reading Surrender To Temptation because it caught my attention and because like many, I enjoy a troubled, heart broken and kinky dominant man. Be aware that you are left with a major cliffhangers after just a few chapters, but no worries the next installment is already available!
