Surrender, Tawny Taylor.

Surrender, Tawny Taylor.
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I really liked the sound of this, sexy and a bit of BDSM….but sadly in practice it was one of those that just didn’t work at all for me and I ended up skim reading just to finish.
What was the problem? Well, first off Abby. She was such a doormat, a wimp and I just couldn’t take to her. There she was having all these inner reservations, and yet she didn’t say a thing. Not One Thing…just let everything happen. Then the boss, Kam, he was simply just weird. Hot, then cold, then hot again, and all for no reason. I’ll believe in insta lust, but I have to feel a real sensual attraction and that both have a bit of depth to them to go for insta love but here…well Abby just seemed to lay eyes on the guy and roll over. Thinks “oh no! You can’t do that” – Acts: opens legs….
Then there was the plot(s) – they just didn’t make sense. We learn that Abby and Kam need to find out who the person who’s filed on her brothers phone is; all they have is the letter T, so they go through employee files etc, and then when the person is revealed the name begins with an S? So what was all that T stuff for? Pointless unless I’m missing something obvious. Then there’s the involvement ( or more to the point the non involvement) of the police, frankly that was so far fetched as to be off the wall. One moment Abby is on the news as wanted in connection with a serious crime, then someone else is taken in and she’s free, never had to answer a question, never even saw a policeman. As she was supposed to be complicit, they’d want to speak to her if only to rule her out . Then the multi billionaire Kam doesn’t have a PI contact? Or even know anyone who can recommend one….please. It was all just too far fetched for me, I know its fiction, but even that if its posing as reality needs to have a base in real life. Sadly the hot sex, and there was lots- though the BDSM link was very, very tenuous and barely credible, didn’t make up for the rest 😦 I’m sure Tawny worked hard, I’m sure some readers will love it, but for me its the one I’m happy to let get away 😦

Stars: sorry, I hate doing this but it’s just a two. I really didn’t enjoy it.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
