Review: The Gilded Cuff (Surrender #1) by Lauren Smith

Every passion has its price . . .

Journalist Sophie Ryder has been following Emery Lockwood’s story since she was a little girl. There has always been something in his haunted eyes that she couldn’t resist and now, when she’s certain he holds the key to solving a string of kidnappings, she’ll do anything to speak to him. Even if it means venturing deep into the seductive world of the Gilded Cuff, a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island’s Gold Coast and Emery’s personal playground.

From the moment Sophie enters his shadowy, sensual domain, Emery Lockwood knows this tantalizing new little sub was meant to belong to him. However, Sophie wants more from Emery than just pleasure . . . she wants his past. And that is something he isn’t willing to give—no matter who is asking. But every moment he spends with Sophie, Emery feels his control slipping and he knows it’s only a matter of time before he surrenders to her heart, body, and soul.

If you read the blurb and think that you’re looking at a straightforward BDSM/Erotica book, think again. I’d have to say that this is more Mystery with some BDSM/Erotica elements. For example, there is “literally” ONE scene in the club and it’s in the first chapter.

Ok, now that I’ve gotten THAT out of the way. This was actually a really good read. I was completely drawn in from the beginning and once I hit the 3rd chapter I was hooked.

Being an investigative journalist, Sophie finds herself bartering for her story. Little does she know what she’s “really” getting herself into. Emery isn’t just a hot billionaire Dom, he’s got some serious demons that need to be addressed and Sophie thinks she can help.

Emery has no idea what the hell has drawn him to Sophie, but he’s going along for the ride. She seems to bring out the kid in him and because of that, he’s extremely curious. She also seems to have a secret of her own that he’s determined to figure out.

HEA? Yep. Do we find out who done it? To be continued…and boy am I ready for the next one.

*I was given a copy of this book as a gift from The JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review.
