Review – The Gilded Chain (Surrender #3) by Lauren Smith

Explore a hidden world of erotic fantasies, where the greatest pleasures are stolen and the fiercest passions are untamed. . .

For years, Callie Taylor has been obsessed with two things: a man she can never have and escaping to Paris where she can follow her artistic passions. But everything changes when Callie meets Wes Thorne, a wealthy, mysterious art collector and famous dominant. Despite all the nights she's spent dreaming of another man, it is Wes's predatory gaze that suddenly consumes her every thought and sets her body on fire. One touch from him promises unforgettable passion, but Callie knows that passion often comes with a price...

From the moment he sets eyes on Callie, Wes is intrigued by her artistic talent and her delightful innocence of all things erotic. A stolen kiss leaves him aching and desperate to claim her in a way he's never wanted any woman. But first he must convince her to surrender her control. And what better place to seduce an artistic soul like Callie's than Paris?

It’s not often that I give 5 Star reviews. In fact, it’s pretty rare. But there’s no way I CAN’T give this what it deserves. This book literally has a little bit of everything in it, which I usually never see in BDSM books.

Callie has been in love with her childhood “crush” forever. But now that she’s heard that he’s engaged, to her best friend, she swears off men and love. Deciding to focus on the family ranch and painting, she surprises herself when she has to admit that Wes has caught her eye.

Wes’ childhood friend is back in his life and engaged to his sister. Too bad the engagement has broken the heart of the young lady he can’t take his eyes off of. Wes is stunningly handsome, wealthy and can have any woman he wants. So why is he so set on Callie? She makes him feel. Something he hasn’t done in years.

While this romance starts to bloom between these two, there is a thief that is targeting the wealthy in Long Island, Wes’ territory. Being the art collector and enthusiast he is, he has made it his mission to help the FBI capture the thief. Having Callie by his side, not only as his potential woman, but a wonderful artist, creates a few twists and turns that are pretty cool.

Although this is the 3rd installment in this series, it “could” be read as a stand-alone. However, I never recommend reading a series that way. You’ll understand the dynamics between all of the characters that much more if you just read along with the series. I haven’t read one of this author’s installments that haven’t been worth it.

Ok, that being said….psst, Lauren…..I want Royce’s story!!!!
