Sometimes the first step in taking control is surrendering.
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.
Faith is a natural submissive- she wants a man to take the lead and the control. She wants to be cared about and needs to feel treasured. Short said: She wants a REAL man and doesn’t know how to get one of those. She’s intrigued by Gray but is afraid to just get another “wannabe” man. So she makes her own plans about getting what she wants. And where did she go to: the local sex club and his sexy owner Damon.
Gray is on an important mission- he wants to get the murder of his partner but what he finds is sweet Faith. He can’t seem to avoid her. He likes her more every time he sees her and he knows getting involved with her isn’t the smart thing to do. He lies to her because his mission is incognito and he hates every minute of it. But what should he do? Stopping to try to find the murder or just forget her? He goes for the second solution but when he discovers what she plans to do in the sex club all bets are off.
The relationship between both of them is a steady back and forth in the beginning. Faith wants all and as fast as possible and Gray is a little reluctant to believe she really wants what she says. Gray annoyed me a bit with, I can’t even say what exactly. I think he annoyed me because he is himself. I think I just don’t like him. I hated the lying and that he didn’t tell her the truth when he had the chance too. I talked to a few people on twitter about that and it seems I’m the only one who’s thinking so. The sex is hawt- it has nearly everything you can think of: BDSM, D/s play and ménage without being too much. Ok perhaps I should rephrase that: Everything I can think of. Don’t know how dirty your minds are. LOL
The suspense plot is good and the pace of the story is great. I really like Maya’ style of writing. The side characters are perfect. I think I love all the other boys- specially Damon and Micah. OMG, these two are yummy.
On thing I noticed is that Maya uses the word “glad” very often(14 times- yep I counted). I only noticed because I so hate this word so much. I know I’m crazy but it sounds so awful and I have the need to puke every time I read it. I don’t know why perhaps it’s because English is not my mother tongue. So just ignore this if you’ve got no problem with this word.LOL
Ignoring my own craziness this book was really good and I enjoyed reading it.
This is the first book in the Sweet Series.
