A secret fantasy.

Hunter had everything until a bullet put his career as a Navy SEAL on hold. Restless and uncertain about his future, he accepts an intriguing proposition: share an acquaintance’s girlfriend and fulfill her fantasy of a ménage.

Recommends it for: Fans of erotic romance featuring a dominating Dom
I don't know what's wrong with me, but I can't fully 'surrender' to these BDSM themed romances. Yet I keep trying. If it's bdsm 'lite', I can usually enjoy it. If I know it's going to be heavy bdsm (with whips and floggers and humiliation and pain), then I avoid it. This one? I wasn't entirely sure that there would even be much of a bdsm element in it (the back cover blurb doesn't actually spell it out, although I guess the phrase determined to master should've been a clue!)

3 stars – BDSM/Erotic Romantic Suspense

I was fairly disappointed with this one. The hero’s declaration of instant love (ahhh...I think it’s called lust) and then demanding total submission was borderline creepy and the annoying, whiny, wishy-washy heroine’s constant back and forth between “oh yes...give me more of those earthquaking, soulshaking orgasms, even though they make me bawl like a baby afterward ‘cause I’m scared that I revealed what a total hussy I am” and snapping her fingers and

Surrender to Me is the fourth book in the Wicked Lovers series and in many ways I liked it much better than the last two installments. So far my favorite is still the first book, Wicked Ties, and to be honest, I'm not sure anyone can ever top (no pun intended) Jack (*be still my heart*) Cole.

As with all of the books in this series, the heroes are over the top "alpha" and would definitely give a caveman a run for his money. In fact, in this snippet, Jack (*sigh*) tries to help Kata understand

Surrender to Me is the fourth book in the Wicked Lovers series and while I liked Hunter from the previous books, there were times where he just scared me. I knew there would be BDSM so it wasn’t that. I just felt that Kata and Hunter stood on opposite sides of the spectrum. Hunter is an all-or-nothing kind of guy, so he expected a full surrender from Kata. But Kata just kept resisting and resisting until it just got annoying. I understand her conflicts with her stepfather and her independent ...more

Let me just start by saying that I have really enjoyed all of the books in the Wicked Lovers series, but the last two books somewhat tried my patience, with that said Hunter's book yanked me right back in!! Hunter runs a very, very close second in deliciousness to Jack Cole in my book!! Hunter is very much an Alpha and a Dom but he is not an A-hole, IMO! I really loved Kata too, although, also IMO, she waffled for a little bit too long on whether she could handle a man like Hunter. I was willing ...more

I read an ARC of this book, and I can't begin to say how much I love it. I've followed the Wicked Lovers series from the beginning and this is right up there with Wicked Ties. Hunter, a Navy SEAL, meet parole office Kata in Vegas where she's having a birthday party. Kata's boyfriend has a surprise for her. He's set up a fantasy - a menage with Hunter. Before you can say threesome, boyfriend is drunk and out of the picture. A couple of hot hours later, Kata and Hunter are married in a Vegas ...more

With this fourth book in her Wicked Lovers series, Shayla Black continues to deliver the sizzle and her plots never fail to be anything but compelling. Surrender to Me was wickedly seductive and totally intoxicating. Black's characters are dynamic and complex and they never fail to pull at your heart strings. I was drawn in from the moment I picked up this book and found myself unable to put it down until the very last page. Surrender was intensely passionate and searingly sexy and will leave ...more

For Kata’s twenty-fifth birthday she flies to Vegas with her “friend with benefits” lover Ben and friends to celebrate. Months ago she had told Ben one of her fantasies was to have a ménage – and Ben has decided this trip is the perfect opportunity to give her this gift. He calls up his friend Hunter Edgington, a Navy SEAL who is on a week vacation while recovering from being shot. Hunter takes one look at Kata and it is love at first sight.

This series started out wonderful, Wicked Ties was such a great book & the characters were so wonderfully written that I couldn't wait to read more of the series. For me, however, each book has captured my attention less & less and I was barely able to finish this book. Never have I rooted for the couple involved to actually part ways, but with Hunter & Kata I did. Their story was painful to read and I just wanted it to be over. IMO, they had absolutely no chemistry & I felt ...more

I had really been looking forward to this book and it just didn't live up to my expectations : (
I LOVED Hunter however, it was unrealistic for him to fall in love at first sight.
I also loved seeing favorites Deke and especially Jack since in my opinion, his story is the best.
What made it only ok for me was Kata and her wishy-washy behavior. I understand that this was all new to her and she had baggage about a D/s relationship and Hunter was very overwhelming, but come on, she just took

Let me start by saying I love this series, and Shayla Black is one of my favorite authors. That being said WTF! Hunter was pushy and borderline annoying. Kata was beyond annoying. 80% of the book is one long ass argument "I won't submit, I'm not a door mat" to " You want to sumbit and I'll convince you of it in 72 hours" I can suspend reality with the best of them, but this "instant love" on Hunter's part was ridiculous. My head hurts from all of Kata's whining.

And the hitman plot, that was

I was excited to read this book, even though with each book this series has been a bit less exciting for me.

And this book didn't bring the excitement back for me. The connection between Hunter and Kata was missing for me. I liked them good enough separate, and they were ok together, but no sparks for me.

This book has BDSM, maybe not so much the type I would like to read, it wasn't sensual. They kept talking about her wanting to have a menage that never happens. Kata has a lot of issues

OK. Well. I didn't HATE this book. There were elements of it that I really liked. But.....

The story centers on Hunter and Kata. They meet in Vegas during her birthday party. Kata's friend, Ben, invited Hunter in order to fill a fantasy for Kata. The fantasy being a menage. Well, after one too many beers, Ben passes out and the menage never happens. But Hunter and Kata hook up, and after a wild and drunken night....they end up married.

For the most part, the protagonist was a complete asshole.

I wanted to like this, but Hunter was just way too controlling and honestly gave me the creeps. The only book from this series that I have to compare it too is "Wicked Ties". Jack, unlike Hunter came off to me as a sexy Cajun who charmed is way into Morgan's heart instead of emotionally and physically stalking his prey. It was also pretty obvious from Morgan's choice of investigation topic that she at least had a passing interest in the topic. Kata kept saying "no" and whether she had a secret ...more

I don't know. The last couple hours of this audio book were pretty good, but the rest of it got on my last nerve. And that is NOT why I'm reading erotica, dude.

The whole dominant/submissive scene can be pretty hot, I guess, as long as that shit is kept in the bedroom. And all parties involved are consenting with very clear boundaries from the beginning. I'm no expert or anything, and I have no wish to judge other

Who doesn't love a hot sexy, take me now and do with me as you please Navy SEAL! They are not only super deliciously hot, they are guaranteed to let any woman feel safe and secure whilst letting her also feel completely out of control.

In this read the story tells of Hunter, injured and on some recovery time he agrees to help out a friend with letting the fantasy of the very hot Kata come to life. But once he has her in his arms he does not feel like sharing at all!

He soon sets himself the goal

I have enjoyed this series for the most part and was eager for Hunter's story. I've had it on preorder FOREVER.

I was truly routing for Hunter and I'm sad this one hit the mark in many ways. I thought the first 60% could be summed up with:

A) She really lost me with the insta-connection. I know she is careful to say it isn't love yet, but COME ON. Really? You see and touch a woman and don't think, "it's lust", oh no you think, "it's a connection that is forever". You feel it in your

A Navy SEAL accepts a hot proposition: share a buddy's girlfriend and fulfill her dream of a ménage. But after meeting Kata he needs more than one night. And he wants her all to himself-a guilty secret that becomes a dangerous fantasy..

I loved this book just the whole concept of what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas.
These two are are so different that you can't help but love them and want them to work it out in the end.

I can safely say this was my favorite of the series. I was really sad when I finished the book, not because the ending was bad, but because it was over and now I have to wait several months before the next one. Hunter is the main guy in this story and he is just Sexy with a capital S. He knows what he wants from the first pages of the book and does everything in his power to get it. To Kata, he's coming on a little strong, but he can't help the way he is. He's very strategic in his attempt to ...more

I was afraid that I would hate Hunter and Kata, but I ended up loving me some Hunter dominance an wanted to be Kata at times! I felt sorry for her FWB Ben, all he wanted was to give her a fantasy and he ended up, after a lot of headbutting between her and Hunter, giving her freedom to be what she really was. A submissive. Hunter was a yummy Dom, and normally that's not my cuppa. But there was spmething about him that I loved.

We get to revisit all the couples of the wicked lovers series. Not sure

I was really surprised with this book. I thought, Here we go again with the "Alpha" male but it turned out I really liked this Alpha male. I enjoyed all the characters especially Hunter *sigh*. Looking forward to Logan's story and Hunter's and maybe some new characters she mentioned...Ben, Xander and Kat's brother(forgot this name).

Plus my name is in this book even though I'm dead. :)

I really liked this one. I thought Kata's confusion over kink was well done. It was nice to see that Hunter wasn't simply a He-man with a desire to dominate and that his lifestyle choices were rooted in his early life experiences. And it was another book I started and couldn't put down.

The first Page was good... I was caught from the beginning and I didn't want to stop turning pages. Hunter is an Alpha's Alpha... What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas or so Kata thought. It's her 25th Birthday and she's doing it up in Vegas.. Friends, Family and her friends with benefits Ben. Not every girl gets to have her fantasy granted but that's just want Ben's offering her... A night filled with just that... Her fantasy... Two men... One extremely satisfied Kata...
