Omg, I finally made it to the end. One thing I will say is that these characters kept me reading till the end. This book is the best of the trilogy and FINALLY has Frankie and Maxim communicating in full sentences and having proper conversations. It was glorious to read and experience after the near silence of the first two books. Maxim’s change from book 1 is pretty remarkable and I kind of fell in love with him. Frankie is still a tad annoying but she did come into her own finally. Here we act ...more

What a way to bring Francesca's story full circle!
And Maxim - the man, the monster
Their story? Far exceeded my imagination

I wasn't sure what unholy nightmare gramps was going to rain down on Max after he disposed (?) of his uncle and set the wheels in motion to claim Francesa as his bride (book two).

Lana Sky's written words draw the reader into the story with delicacy and prose. Maxim is an OTT possessive Alpha male, who takes what he wants, when he wants, as he has been raised. Poor Francesca is still struggling in his perimeters and trying to deal with who they both are and who they are becoming because of one another.
As much as I love the main H and h characters, I kind of fell in love with Dima and need more of his story.
I recommend this series!

What an extraordinary end to a complicated emotional series. It was time for both Maxim and Frankie to make a stand for what they want and believe in. But are they on the same page? This is a part of the story that redefines family for both of them.

We get introduced to a new family member, who changes the game. You wonder what Dima wants: revenge? Money? Power? Or maybe it's something more nebulous. But it's Dima that's the catalyst for both Maxim and Frankie to make choices with real consequen

Well, this is the conclusion to Maxim & his Kotyonok's (Frankie) story.
And what a SUPERB conclusion I found it to be.
I traveled with them through 'Obey' & 'Submit' & I cannot emphasize enough how beautifully satisfying this final book in their story was for me.
And being Maxim's a major part of it, there is blood, death, threats, assassination attempts, rough & brutal carnal interactions between him & his Kotyonok GALORE. Things have ramped up, Maxim proposed to Frankie, his grandfather is sque

Surrender: XXX Maxim Book 3 (Club XXX) by Lana Sky

Francesca (Frankie) Marconi is has been taking care of her six siblings all by herself for a long time. She once worked three different jobs so she could support them but now she has someone that could give her more choices.

Maxim Koslov is a Russian crime lord with a dark and twisted sexual appetite who happens to own a sex club called XXX where nothing is off limits. He runs the western section of the city for his grandfather, but things have ch

WOW, I was going to read this book over several days but dang it was too good to put down; much like all of Lana Sky’s books!

You must read Obey and Submit first to really appreciate and understand these characters and what they have been through to get to this place in their relationship.

I so love Maxim and Francesca’s journey so far and they are fast becoming two of my favorite characters!

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of "SURRENDER" (XXX MAXIM) This is such a terrific ending to Frankie and Maxim's journey to find their HEA if thats even possible with all the threats and chaos tossed in their direction.
Frankie has had a rough life raising 6 siblings on her own she's stronger than anyone thinks when she meets Maxim the first time they didn't really click but as time went on they began to trust one another he did so much to help her with her family.

Holy beautiful darkness, Batman!!

She's done it again. Ms. Sky has broken my mind with the conclusion to Maxim and Frankie's dirty and gritty, beautiful and bloody, dangerous and seductive story. I tell you the monster of a mobster will have you teetering between loving and hating him more than half way through the story (. . . And I love it). It's beautiful torture, the twisted nightmare these two go through to find the end of their story - assassins, blood, bondage, a ring, and family.

I have to say this might be the best work Sky has done. Frankie and Maxim really .... I love them in their final book. The growth these characters have is astronomical. I’m so happy I was along for the journey these two provided. Frankie and Maxim are completed different but the same and I’m here for it.

This book (series) does continue to contain dark elements such as descriptions of killing, mentions of abuse, and dark sex BDSM but in no way shape or form do these elements take away from the st

Oh my black heart needed this book. It coudn't have came at a better time! If you haven't read Submit and Obey (books 1&2) it makes a lot of sense to read the books in order. You definitely don't wan't to miss out on Frankie and Maxim's crazy world of Darkness. Frankie has come into her own by the end of this series. We watched her grow and become who she is , I love her character. We learned so much about Maxim in this story and I loved seeing how Frankie made Maxim become more human. He is pre ...more

What an epic conclusion of one of the best series I've read. I preordered this the second it came up, and yet, I waited weeks to read it. It felt like I had been waiting eagerly for Maxim and Francesca's 3rd book, but I could not bring myself to let it end. And that's the very first time I've ever done that with any released book. I was sure I was going to speed through as soon as it officially released, but I couldn't help but want to hold off so I could have that in my back pocket whenever I w ...more

It had me hooked and riding the edge holding my breath and gasping in shock and riddled with nervous anxiety overcome with fear and pulled at my emotions as the story gets down and dirty deep into Maxim and Dima's brutal past that pulls at my heartstrings and cringing in disgust.

Let me just say this whole series was phenomenal. I recommend reading all three books. The story line, the characters, the flow made this series one of my top 3. These books made me want to read every single word written in it. I found myself grabbing the book for dear life and holding my breath in the next. Mafia greatness. Francesca aka Kotyonok was so strong, smart and loving. I love the way she was written. I felt all of her pain and happiness. And my bad boy Maxim aka Wolf . He was mean, ev ...more

I have no words. Well, actually I do:

This was an incredible end to a series, to say the least. Absolutely unputdownable.

I feel like this book expands so much more on both Frankie's and Maxim's characters than the previous two books in the series. Especially with Maxim's past, he is definitely made more human, less of stone. And I felt like there was some really great character development in this book, and the overall tone of this book feels different, or at least it changes. It's more hopeful.

This is the third and final book in Maxim and Frankie's story. You must read all these books and in order to get the most out of them. I am sorry to say goodbye to this couple but I am totally satisfied with how everything wrapped up. I thought that there was a special kind of beauty to this couple's romance. Having both characters be incredibly strong and fierce but also wounded and burdened by baggage created a powerful and compelling dynamic that was incredibly easy to become invested in. Wat ...more

Surrender is the third and final installment of Club XXX: MAXIM series.

Now I have read and enjoyed the first 2 parts of this series so I was very excited to finally get my hands on the final part of it and to find out what happens next with both Maxim and Frankie.

As per usual Lana’s writing continues to amaze, she manages to create such a dark atmosphere filled with mystery and suspense which it just keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Surrender is the conclusion to the club XXX trilogy featuring maxim and Frankie. You need to read the first 2 books before delving into surrender.

I really enjoyed the conclusion to this couple. Maxim is still his sexy alpha self, although we did see a much softer side to him this time around, especially with Frankie’s family.

Our girl Frankie gets some much needed back bone, and stands up to maxim quite a bit in this book - almost a little bit too much maybe? Or maybe it was just accepted a bit t

“But, as always, he can never leave me with a solid choice—it always comes in the form of a game. The premise of this one, he proposes as a dare.”

So, Maxim has to be one of the most brutal alpha men I’ve ever read about but I wouldn’t dare expect less from Lana Sky.

“Mine,” he rasps. “You were made for me. And I will ensure the world knows it. No matter the fucking cost.”

Her characters are truly tortured, dark, and dominating.

You don’t know whether to be disturbed or turned on.

A Definite 5 Stars for the Ending of this Series....
This is the continuation to Maxim and Frankie's story. I loved this book even more than the previous two in the series. I suggest you read books 1 & 2 in this series to understand what's going on. The story continues with the same damaged Maxim and with Frankie continuing to hang in there with him. The children are seen a lot more in the story, which I really like because it showed how much Frankie was pulled between them and Maxim. There are s

This is perfect ending to a dark twisted and gritty end of the Maxim and Frankie's story.

Book started where second one ended and my God first few scenes were one of the most gruesome ones I have read in a book. I felt bit quesy after reading those chapters but after that we get to see a human side of Maxim which I truly loved especially his interaction with kids that kind of melted my heart. But by far I think Maxim is sickest anti hero of Lana sky novel.

These books were weird. The jumping around was too much some times. A lot of this book didn’t even make sense.
They’d be in the middle of something, then boom, the next line they were in a different room, different position, in a whole conversation. It bounces around so much sometimes that I almost stopped reading.

The ending was crap too. Zero closure with Maxim and Frankie’s story. The next three books are about his psycho brother.

I wish I wouldn’t have wasted my time with this series.

What an amazing ending to this series! I do recommend reading them in order. Maxim and Francesca have been through so much, both together and before meeting each other. Maxim and Francesca have an intense chemistry but Francesca has her siblings to raise and keep safe. We also learn more about Maxim’s life growing up which makes you ache for him even more. This is an amazing read with lots of twists and turns, drama and emotion. The chemistry is intense and the story draws you in from beginning ...more

I couldn’t give Surrender enough stars! This was by far my favorite book in the trilogy, perhaps my favorite book of Lana Sky’s. The characters, plot and twists were perfection. The emotion and truths that were shared made the characters so raw. I was guessing through the whole book of what was going to happen and would be completely shocked of what was going on! You must read Submit and Obey first, but Surrender is the perfect cherry on top!

What a thrilling ending to Maxim and Frankie’s journey. Surrender was more than what I expected. It not only had everything I loved about this dark romance series but it had a new layer of complexity that just made it that much better.

I absolutely loved Maxim and Frankie’s relationship and their character growth. All they went through to get to where they end up was a beautiful and intense adventure.

Loved it!

This book is definitely not nearly as dark as the first two, but that's what makes it so absolutely amazing! Maxim and Francesca along with the kids managed to come together and somehow form a family. It was so beautiful to see. Especially Maxim, he's changed the most and for the better. Loved this book and I wish I got some more on this couple, I adore them and I'd love to read more about them

This is, by far, my favourite series by Lana. Quite frankly, I've never seen such complex, beautiful characters as Maxim and Frankie. I love their story. I love them. Facing obstacles that no one could imagine, and finally deciding to trust each other and face them together. There couldn't have been a more beautiful conclusion to the series. ...more

Lana Sky is a truly gifted writer. She weaves a story of intrigue and suspense that keeps one on the edge of their seat. As Frankie finds her voice and confidence, I couldn’t help wondering how she would handle Maxim’s secrets. Would Maxim’s past destroy their future? What would become of her family? You definitely don’t want to miss the conclusion to this exceptional and emotional trilogy!

“The intensity of his gaze is, in some ways, more alarming than the pool of scarlet congealing at his feet or the mass of flesh just a few feet away. One look conveys more than he could ever say. A promise. A threat. This is what I’d do for you, that expression declares.
Kill. Maim. Cut. For you. Can you handle that, Francesca?”
