Sweet Surrender by Maya Banks

Under Faith Malone’s deceptively soft exterior lies a woman who knows exactly what she wants. A strong man who’ll take without asking—because she’s willing to give him everything…

Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner—and bring him to justice. So far, he’s found a link between the killer and Faith—and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it.

Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she’s playing games. No way she would allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she?

Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance. So she takes matters into her own hands to prove to him it’s no game she’s playing. She’s willing to surrender to the right man. Gray would like to be that man. But catching his partner’s killer has to be his first priority. Until Faith is threatened and Gray realizes he will do anything to protect her.

REVIEW: I had a really hard time reading this book, I ended up just skimming it because I just couldn’t get into the story. I have read other books along this theme, and I have to say that I liked them more. As a fan of Maya Banks, I love her Silhouette books, so I was expecting to love this story and I didn’t like it.

There wasn’t any one thing that I didn’t like, I think it was the story as a whole that I didn’t like. I will say that the sex was OMG hot, but that was about all.

This was read as part of the WInter 08 Challenge: Story that has a military or civil servant.

I give this book a 3 out of 5.
