Julie wants Gabe Griffin like fish want water, but what she wants is sweet domestic bliss and a white picket fence. What Gabe wants is to put a collar around Julie’s throat and train her in the finer points of being his slave.
At first too innocent, then too broken, can Julie ever surrender to the man intent on claiming her?

Can I just say how excited I was to read Surrender! I have been a long time fan of Ms. Thomas and knowing it was set in the same world of not one, but two of her other books, had me squealing. Now let me start by saying if you are a new fan or back for more Kitty, it is not necessary to read those previous books. That loosely translates into this is not a series. That’s right, not a series. BUT, if you have read them, you will be happy to know Gabe gets his own story.
*Snoopy dance time*
Seeing that the blurb is fairly short and not loaded with details, I was not exactly sure what was going to happen. It’s obvious that Gabe meets someone who has different ‘wants’ than his. Domestic bliss and a white picket fence? I’m I reading the right book? As I start reading, my brain is still struggling with this and I’m wondering is this a new twist. However, I keep going because there is another clue that I’m not giving up on. “…too innocent, then too broken.”
On that note, I’m going to stop because let’s face it, if the author wanted you to know more, it would have been in the blurb. What goes on between Julie and Gabe is not erotic but more emotional and to a certain point, mental. Let’s be honest, aren’t all of Kitty books a mental game. The game in Surrender has a bit of a love story-ish feel to it, well one you can have that involves collars and slaves.
And the ending, of course, left me wanting more. That’s what is to be expected when you don’t want the book to end. You want more, to find out how their lives continue on. Well, tough! There is no more…except. Remember, this is not a series. This is a book set in the same world as two previous books. Have you read them because more may be something you actually get after all. *Insert evil grin*
