Review: Surrendering to Her Sergeant (WILD Boys of Special Forces #3) by Angel Payne

IT’S HERE! Book Three in Angel Payne’s hot, sexy series is the story of Ethan Archer and Ava Chestain, set against the glamorous world of Hollywood’s jet set…

Corporal Ethan Archer has just earned his sergeant's stripes, and the guys on his Special Forces team decide that a trip to the fun and sun of LA is a perfect way to celebrate. Ethan has other motives for agreeing to the vacation. He can't forget a magical hour in a North Cascades forest last winter, shared with an indigo-eyed goddess named Ava Chestain, who now calls LA her home.

Ava is a stylist for Bella Lanza, star of the hit nighttime drama “Dress Blues.” When Ethan and his buddies finagle a visit to the set, his reunion with Ava melts the months away—but their time is cut short by Bella, who’s determined to rekindle her own naughty past with Ethan. His efforts to push Bella off are thwarted when the unit is called to secretly cut their vacation short in the name of assisting the CIA on a terrorist plot to destroy the West Coast. Part of the plan? Someone has to get closer to Bella, and Ethan's the logical choice.

Though Ethan risks his career by telling Ava about the plot, her trust is an impossible gift to earn. Her passion is a different story. As his willing submissive, Ava gives him the fire his body craves and the surrender his soul needs. She's a dream come true, until the cuffs come off and the sun comes up.

When a terrifying turn of events escalates the terrorists’ plan into reality, Ethan must make decisions that will either kill or save them all. Can Ava trust him enough to stand by him with everything she is…including what could be her last breath?

Angel Payne entertains in Surrendering to Her Sergeant, the third book in the WILD Boys of Special Forces.

Ava Chestain and Ethan Archer met under wild circumstances. Now, seven months later, Ethan is back from his latest assignment and has every intention of discovering why Ava never returned any of his calls or texts. Having had her heart broken—twice—by soldiers, Ava refuses to surrender her heart to Ethan. But, their very first kiss has been seared into her memory, making Ethan a difficult man to forget. Since seeing her again, Ethan wants nothing more than to pick up where they left off. Ava and Ethan’s chemistry sizzles and jumps off the page, making them a captivating couple. Their first BDSM scene is a well-constructed example of mind distortion, and one of the hottest scenes of this type I’ve read in a long time. Ava and Ethan’s other D/s scenes are scorching hot and explicit while at the same time organically propelling their relationship forward. I also enjoyed the budding relationship between Luna Lawrence and Tait Bommer, especially their use of Harry Potter references. Unfortunately I found the expansion of the story arc built from the first two books lacking. I feel the plot twists in this book were unrealistic, and I had a few “roll my eyeball” moments when I was unable to suspend reality enough to buy what was happening.

I did thoroughly enjoy the first two books in this series. Regrettably, Surrendering to Her Sergeant just didn’t fire on all cylinders for me. I am confident that lots of readers who have enjoyed this series will thoroughly enjoy this installment too; I just wasn’t one of them.
