At the end of Submit, Arianna Harlow had enough pride in herself to walk away from Rafe Palazzo, who had started their relationship using blackmail. Though she’d fallen in love with him, she was strong enough to say goodbye. We saw the softer side of Rafe, especially toward the end, but it was too late…

Or was it?

Seduced begins almost two years after Ari starts her new life

I am generally not a pre-order book person, but I did with this book as I really liked Submit and Surrender in this series and was hopeful that Seduced would follow the same lines. I really enjoy Melody Anne’s writing style and books but I was kind of disappointed with the way this story played out. I wish that this book had been more about Rafe and Ari and how they get back together. What changes both Rafe and Ari went through to make them able to love each other for the long haul. Instead it ...more
I'm so into this series and let me tell you there is a lot going on in this book!

There are three different stories going on here. First we have the story of Rafe and Ari. Rafe has been working with Shane in South America for two years and has become a changed man. The entire time he's not forgotten about Ari and has kept an eye on her from afar. Finally he's decided that he has to win her back and sets out to do that. Rafe does show he's different and sets out to win Ari's trust.

The second stor
I just cant I dont give a rip about Lia or Ravhel or Shane or Ian all I wanted was Rafe and Ari, I really feel the authour is just tring to extend the series by adding all this stuff. she had a good thing going with the first book and if she wanted to tell the other stories she should have done stand alone books for them, I couldnt even finish I wish I vould have my time stars and returning the book
Oh I so wanted to give this 4 or 5 stars, because I love Melody Annes books, but I really can't as it would discredit all my other reviews.

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this book and I had really been looking forward to it, and am really looking forward to the next one, but I didn't 'love it', in fact there were times when I was bloody frustrated with the book and wanting to shout "what the hell is going on with this book?". I am so gutted that I am writing a review like this about one of my

Ridiculous third book loved the Ari Rafe story but all the other outlandish rubbish has spoilt this for me the author obviously wants various spin offs from this will not be reading next book
love love love it!

i just love these two! i am also so happy to witness the budding relationship between lia and shane! So happy that we got a sneak peek of rachel's adventures too!

i cant wait till book 4!!!

Thank you melody anne for another fabulous, sexy, fun, heartstoppin book to the series!

While I still find myself intrigued with these characters, I just felt like this book was truly all over the place. I don't mind reading books with different points of view that flip around a little bit, or even a lot, but there's a real art to those books and unfortunately, this one came out as just messy. Time frames were all over the place, which is always messy to me as a reader. I also can't help but be annoyed with how impossibly stiff some of the dialogue is. Assuming these books are cont ...more
I have loved Rafe and Ari from the start. Rafe saw that he needed to fix himself, the part of him that was broken and hard inside. He knew that he could not be with Ari unless he could like/love himself. You could see the turmoil in Ari face when Rafe showed up in her classroom unannounced after 2 years. Watching him do homework was classic. He never backed down and finally was able to prove that he had changed and loved her. I have to say the proposal was one of the most romantic scenes I have ...more
really hated this book and really loved it at the same time. first thing, I hate that rafe and Ari's story is cheated because the author felt that all six characters needed to have their point if view seen. that isn't necessary. write separate books for them. what really makes me mad is that at 92%, the book is finished. I believe it should at least make it to 98%.
Heather  *reads to much according to the hubby*
Hmm book 3 in this series.
You get three couples that play this back n forth lust/love game. Most of the story is the cont of Ari and Rafe but secondary characters are stealin the show. Shane/Lia and Ian/Rachel.
*possible spoiler if ya care
Half the book is Rafe tring to win Ari back just to end with a wedding that never happens and a mysterous note.

My take is that the book series both are really drawn out and way too much will i wont i drama. However i still continue to read on because I strive fo

Nothing too dark and dank, but there are some hardships, some sadness, definitely some laughs, and for sure a ton a charm and wit! This is the third installment on the Surrender series and I honestly thought it was the last... but low and behold a new hot little baby to keep these fires burning will be out soon. Once again Melody Anne keeps our heads spinning and hearts a flutter! I can't even begin to say all the things I w

I give this book 5 stars, 2 snaps and a mmmmmm hmmmm. I was very nervous starting this book because I honestly wasn't sure how I felt about this being 2 years from the previous book. Well Ms. Anne, i bow to you chanting "I'm not worthy I'm not worthy". You did not disappoint. I very clearly saw that this time showed how Rafe developed and grew from the previous 2 books in the series. Rafe showing up in her class was cute, got to wonder the school policies on professor/student relationships at th ...more

Ahhhh! 2 years? 2 YEARS!?!?!?

Remind me to find someone that will refuse to give up on me like that. Good grief. I love Rafe's relentless pursuit of Ari. I love that she took her time to get back into the relationship too, no just jumping into it all willy-nilly. And (view spoiler)

So, Lia and Shane. That's a little bit of hotness there. And

When I read the first two books in the Surrender Series, I couldn’t wait for this book to come out. It was definitely worth the wait and I finished it very quickly. Now, I am waiting for the next one!

Ari and Rafe are one of my favorite book couples and have been since Book #1. This book picks up two years after the end of Book #2 and shows a “new and improved” Rafe. Actually, Rafe is still Rafe, he just has finally realized just what Ari means to him and knows he has to approach her differently
Catherine Arnaud
Absolutly loved this book! It keep getting better and better!
In this book the story between Rafe and Ari continuous. After Ari left Rafe, he sees what he miss it, but Ari wants nothing with Rafe, what he makes her do and how he treats her its inexcusable. The time goes by but neither of them is capable to forget each other. Ari tells Rafe that he has to change and become a better person, only the time will say if he deserves a second chance.
Two years after , after many life experiences, Rafe is

Melody never cease to amaze me and again you did not disappoint (tho I know you never could)! This book as are all of yours is fun, engaging, enraging, sexy, passionate and just plain good.
I truly get lost in your books, in your words.

In the Surrender Series, I have watched Rafe learn to forgive and to love. I have watched Ari learn to stand on her own two feet. I have watched them learn to trust each other. I am so in love with this series.

I really liked this book. The constant swapping of POV's between the six...yes six...characters didn't really bother me. The only thing that bothered me was that Rachel and Ian's story was lumped in here. I really wish they had their own book because their story captivated me from their first meeting. I also enjoyed the new and improved Rafe with a heart. He was so kind and loving.
This book contained the most romantic proposal ever written in a book, so so beautifu, but I'm not going to say who

OMG!!! I am so in love with this book!!! I have followed Rafe's and Ari's story from the start and I just love them. I think it's amazing how both of them have matured and changed for the better. It's as though they have each, unknowingly, "prepared" themselves to be with each other ultimately. Soulmates is the word that comes to mind when I think of Rafe and Ari. Bonus to this book is that there are actually 3 love stories happening at the same time and I cannot wait to read more. November can' ...more

RESEÑA y CRÍTICA completa en el blog...

En esta parte nos encontramos con una fase de la relación entre Ari & Rafe en tiempo muerto, y no solo es una expresión en esta novela sino el principio de un sino para ellos.

Ellos tienen varias cuentas pendientes pero la más importante es la falta de comunicación que tienen y no saber cómo hacer entender a esa persona como se siente uno con respecto al otro en general, no solo en el plano amoroso.

La primera part

I really enjoyed this book. Melody Anne is one of my absolute favorite authors. She always comes up with some Amazing Alpha men. Yum.

Rafe has realized how wrong he was. He now knows that he cannot live without Ari and knows that he has to change. Ari wants none of it. The hardest thing she had done was walk away from Rafe and she does not think that she can survive doing it again.

Shane is tired of Lia running from him. It has been two years and he wants her back. So as he plans to take a detour
This is Surrender #3.
Ari walked away from Rafe. He let her go. It's two years later and she is now teaching at a community college. Rafe has been with Shane, building houses for poor people. He has changed but he has not gotten Ari out of his heart. He decides to go home and pursue her. He can no longer live without her. He takes her history class and begins to woo Ari. Will it work?

Shane decides to go get Lia. He is tired of her anger. They are working to together on a project on an island off
This story dives into all three couples- where the first two were mostly about Rafe & Ari with a little bit about Shane and Lia.

Rafe has his work cut out with trying to win Ari back. I thought she was a bit too stubborn but slowly realize that Rafe had some growing to do. As for Lia I do think she is just being a be brat. Sure, Shane jump out of bed to run and talk to her brother about his feelings for his sister but for her to not pursuit a relationship because of that seems petty. As the s

While I enjoyed reading more about Ari and Rafe, I felt this book was too much. It is often difficult to follow a book when it is written from more than 2 POVs and this book was written with 6 POVs. I feel it would have been better if the author had decided to write Lia's and Rachel's stories in a their own books rather than trying to write about the lives of 3 different couples all at once. I feel each couple wasn't given the focus they each deserved because there was so much jumping around wit ...more
Enjoyed this book like the others the only problem I had with it was the girls took forever to forgive the guys. Two years...really? I know women can hold a grudge hell if you look it up the dictionary my face will be there, but then again it took the men two years or more to grow a pair. I guess I just wanted they to get over it already or find someone else!
So here's an update on this book! ...Totally swept me off my feet! I love the way the author gave each character their own spotlight a chapter at a time while still incorporating every one together throughout the book. And let me just add; some one can propose to me like that ANY.TIME.! I can't wait till NOV for the last book! I know it'll be breath-taking! :) ...more

Another cliffhanger of a book. Roll on the conclusion in book 4. Ari and Rafe are back together finally, he's a changed man. He is almost human now! So much going on with Ari and Rafe, with shane and lia and with Rachel and hernew man. Sometimes I got a bit confused who was telling the story in a particular chapter but all in all in all I enjoyed it.

You did it again, Melody Anne. I wish I could write as good as you. Unfortunately, although I have many stories to tell, I wouldn't know where to begin. But, reading your work, which is never a difficulty, inspires me. You inspire me. Keep doing what you do best. I cannot wait for scorched. Or my dark angels, I need to know how they are, desperately!!
Two years after Arianna Harlow walks away from Rafe Palazzo, she has started her new life and is teaching History at the Community College. During her lesson she asks her class if they have any questions and someone sure does…..Rafe is back and asking her on a date. Ari has tried to harden her heart towards Rafe these past two years but she hasn’t seen how much Rafe has changed in this time apart. Can Rafe Seduce Ari back into his life and his bed? And what is to happen with Shane and Lia after ...more
