“You look like hell,” Jensen Tucker said bluntly from the doorway of Kylie Breckenridge’s office.

Kylie shot him a look that would have withered a lesser man. But Jensen was frustratingly unaffected by her icy demeanor around him. He acted as if he didn’t have a clue that he bugged the shit out of her. But no, she imagined he knew exactly how much he bothered her, and he just chose to ignore it. Stubborn, impossible, completely overbearing man. Precisely the kind of man she avoided at all costs.

Only he was her boss. That put another sour expression on her face. Carson had been her boss, he and Dash. And then when her brother had died three years ago, Dash had become her only boss and she had liked it that way.

Jensen should hire his own damn personal assistant, but he seemed perfectly content to dump his workload on Kylie and annoy the piss out of her in the process.

“Gee, thanks,” she said in a tone to match her glare. “Nice to know I pass muster around here.”

Jensen strolled into her office, uninvited. But then he’d never come in here if he waited for an invitation. Kylie had made it clear she didn’t want him anywhere near her. Another thing he chose to ignore.

He took a seat in one of the chairs in front of her desk, and she made a mental note to get rid of them. They were unnecessary. Jensen and Dash did all the entertaining of their clients. There wasn’t a need for anyone to ever enter her office. She did her job quietly and efficiently, never drawing attention to herself. Only for some reason, Jensen seemed determined to invade her personal space. A fact that had increasingly frustrated her in the weeks since he’d joined Dash in their consulting firm.

“You aren’t sleeping,” he said in that same straightforward tone he’d used to tell her she looked like hell.

His gaze penetrated her, raking over her features, and she knew what he saw. What she saw in the mirror every morning. Eyes haunted with the past. Deep shadows seemingly permanently etched underneath her eyes. She knew what she looked like. She didn’t need this arrogant asshole to point it out to her.

“I wasn’t aware that my appearance or sleep habits in any way interfered with my duties here.”

Her sarcasm was wasted because Jensen just let it roll off him, much like he did everything else. Never once had she seen him express any sort of emotion. He didn’t get upset or angry but neither had she ever seen him express happiness or excitement. Nothing but that steady gaze that saw too much. Peeling back the layers of her skin—and her mind. She hated it. She felt like a bug under a microscope. She wouldn’t put it past him to know when she went to the damn bathroom.

He was a man who nothing escaped his notice. He was quiet, observant. He stood back and observed others. It suited him well for the career he’d chosen. But it discomfited her. He could save his scrutiny for the consulting jobs he and Dash took on. Those companies needed his unbiased and discerning eye. She sure as hell didn’t need it or want it.

“You do a damn fine job, Kylie. I don’t believe I’ve ever given you reason to doubt my confidence in your abilities. If I have, then I apologize. Dash and I would certainly be lost without you.”

She blinked in surprise over the unexpected praise, and unwanted color washed into her cheeks, warming her skin. She didn’t want to acknowledge the brief surge of pleasure his veiled compliment had brought.

“When was the last time you slept?” he asked pointedly, still staring at her, studying intently.

“Last night,” she said lightly. “Just like I do every night.”


Her eyes widened at the growl in his voice.

“If you’re even getting a few hours of sleep I’d find that hard to believe. Why don’t you take some time off? Go somewhere. Relax. Take a vacation. Dash says you’ve never once taken off. Only when Carson died.”

Kylie flinched, unable to temper the surge of grief that hit her square in the chest.

“You can say it,” Jensen said in an almost brutal tone. “He’s dead, Kylie. Joss has moved on so why can’t you?”

She slapped her palms down on her desk and stood, staring him down, not giving a single inch.

“He was my family,” she hissed. “My only family. He was all I had left in the world. He was the only person who loved me, who protected me, and now he’s gone. If you think I can just blithely forget that and go on about my life like his death didn’t affect me you can go to hell.”

“There. Finally some emotion, Kylie. Even if you’re spitting mad. But at least you’re not acting like some goddamn robot working on autopilot. Would it kill you to be human like the rest of us? Shit happens. You deal with it, pick up the pieces and move on. Just like everyone else in the human race. You aren’t special. You aren’t the only person who’s had a shitty past and who’s lost someone they love.”

Fury clouded her vision making the room go hazy. Anger tightened every one of her features and for a moment she was paralyzed, unable to respond around the knot in her throat choking her.

“How dare you?” she raged. “Who the hell are you to judge me? You don’t know a goddamn thing about me. Get the hell out of my office and don’t come back. If you want or need something, you can damn well email me, call me or text. But do not come back into my office.”

He didn’t react to her outburst. To her astonishment, a faint smile glimmered on his lips.

What the heck Maya Banks? 7 mai 2014
Par Gabrielle Zenkov - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've read several of her earlier books and enjoyed them. I'm familiar enough with her style to know alpha males (sometimes multiples) and mostly vulnerable women are her go to characters. I was ok with that because the stories were genuinely entertaining. So I was excited to find this book, because I love dominance. However, this was just disappointing. It seriously fell flat for me. I'm just about half way through, and I doubt I will finish it.

I wish I had read some of the reviews for the first book in this series, because this one seems to suffer from the same sort of issues. Kylie's hang ups start to get really repetitive. And by that I mean the way she talks about them. Banks uses a lot of the same language over and over. Also Jensen is really disappointing to me. I'm starting to get pretty sick of the way she creates a dominant male who happens to see a woman and immediately knows she's the one for him to "cherish, protect, blah blah blah."

Maybe My issue is that I've read too many of hers, but this one has just been lacking in every way. In some other reviews I read for Letting Go, many said she seems to be creating cookie cutter books now, and I totally agree. There is no character development, and the way Kylie's issues are depicted are unrealistic and just annoying. Even if you love Maya Banks, skip this one.

Shocked & Disappointed 24 mai 2014
Par LMSD - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Let me start out by saying that it truly pains me to have to review this book with a one star rating. I have EVERY single one of Maya's books. I started years ago w/ the Colter's Series... and continued with the KGI Series.. Sweet Series...Tangled Hearts... Breathless.. the list goes on and on.. BUT this book/series, is NOT the Maya Banks I know. The writing is so poor, the dialogue so minimal, repetitive, adolescent.. there's no real story line, and it's just so hard to want to read it that it makes me wonder why these books were even written. They seem so incomplete, unpolished, not the type of books I would expect from Maya Banks. I hope this is just a fluke.. because when she's on her game, her books are outstanding. However, this series, is definitely not worth spending your money on.

Maya, what the hell has happened to you? 15 mai 2014
Par Megan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Maya Banks is one of my fave authors. However, I think she needs to take a break from writing to come of with something fresh. This book was PAINFUL to get through. The main characters keep repeating the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over again and again and again. How annoying was that to read? Well that's what it's like reading this book. So disappointed in Maya banks. I'm not going to waste my money on the third in this series, that's for damn sure.

Another Win From Maya Banks - Hot, Steamy, and a Great Story 7 mai 2014
Par Erica - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I really enjoyed Letting Go, the first book in the trilogy, but something was missing. Whatever that was was found x 100 in Giving In, and I just loved it to pieces. Since I read the synopsis for Giving In, I was totally stoked for it, because after the banter between Kylie and Jensen in book 1, I knew their story would be something special. And that is just what is was.

I continue to love the characters - Chessy, Joss, and Kylie - what a great group of friends. And the men of this series are pretty great too. Kylie grows so much as a character in this one, and I just loved seeing her break out of her shell.

Jensen and Kylie . . . they are seriously just made for one another. I loved the balance of the sweet moments paired with the super hot moments between the two of them.

Oh man, I am so psyched for Chessy and Tate's story. I cannot wait for it. Maya Banks is one of those must read authors- every time I see she has a new book coming out, I get excited and it put on my auto buy list. Giving In was no exception to that awesome Maya Banks regularly produces.

Talk Supe Review: Giving In Almost Made Me Gave Up 8 mai 2014
Par Braine @ Talk Supe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
GIVING IN by Maya Banks, book two of her Surrender Trilogy is still erotic but more romantic than Letting Go. I don't know which of the two I like better, there are specific parts about GIVING IN that I liked but overall I had problems suspending disbelief throughout the novel.

Brief summary, Kylie is Joss' sister-in-law and a victim of physical abuse when she was a child thanks to her father. Jensen Tucker, Kylie's new boss, also had a rough childhood. His father didn't beat him up but he grew up watching his old man treat his mom like a punching bag. Both of them have control issues because of their traumatic pasts. On that note, I liked how these two navigated through their troubles as they build a romantic relationship. Jensen was very accommodating, attentive, and loving to Kyle, he really went out of his way to reassure and show her that his intentions are good and that he's there for Kylie and Kylie alone. Not sex or anything, just Kylie.

Kylie for her part was receptive to Jensen's love and caring ways. She was very patient with Jensen when his demons came back to haunt him. She was very gentle, kind, and understanding when Jensen finally bared his soul to her and revealed his past. In that moment, Kylie healed Jensen with love and it was a beautiful scene. There was a great give and take between these two and for a Dominant, Jensen was very submissive to Kylie.

"What it means is that you're in the driver's seat, baby. Whatever happens from here on out is up to you. It means that when or if we make love, you'll be in complete control and I will be at your mercy. It means that when it comes to you, I'm not dominant, nor do I have any desire to be. I am, in effect, at your feet." - Jensen

Now on to the part that had me scoffing and rolling my eyes a bit. First, I wouldn't necessarily tag GIVING IN as having insta-love however Kylie and Jensen's love affair was fast and sweeping. Bear in mind that Jensen is Kylie's boss and though there's an obvious attraction between the two, I would expect for at least Kylie to exercise caution especially since she's the most vulnerable between the two. Here's what happened, they were in a business dinner and Kylie thought she saw her dad which gave her a panic attack. Jensen rushed to her side and offered comfort, told her that he'll spend the night with her and Kylie can cuff him to the bed so she'd be reassured that he won't touch or hurt her.

Who does this?!

I mean under a different circumstance sure it would be akin to a one-night stand. But given Kylie's backstory and all the other pieces, I can't help but scoff at her judgment. Sure enough Kylie had nightmares that night and because Jensen was cuffed to the bed, he wasn't able to comfort her in time did he.

Now for the conflict, like in Letting Go, the conflict in GIVING IN is a little bit flimsy. I mean these two had several soul baring sessions, a touching show and tell of their wounds and scars which will surely tug anybody's heartstrings. Now after all's been said and done, Jensen realized that he's not good for Kylie. I mean are you kidding me?! You initiated this whole love is healing thing with Kylie and now that she's madly in love with you, you want to bolt because of your own demons?!

I get the flight or fight reflex, what I didn't appreciate is how little he valued Kylie and her love for him. Kylie allowed him to step into her life and scare her demons away the least Jensen can do is give Kylie a chance to do the same, right?! Of course Kylie was able to sort it out and they still had their happily ever after. I just can't help but shake my head over Jensen's immaturity at this point.

Now I may have issues with GIVING IN but it doesn't mean that this was a bad read. I may not have liked some parts but I'm a reader and a blogger so my views are very subjective. If I were to just look at the romantic parts of GIVING IN, I loved it! Jensen is the perfect guy for Kylie and for any girl with a past, his love in unconditional and I give him A+ for effort. I just wish that the conflict was executed differently or Jensen acted more in character.
