Kylie works as the office manager in the office in the company that her brother with the help of a friend started. Kylie is a smart woman who is content where she is. She is alone in life after the death of her brother a few years ago. She is still recovering from the abuse her father gave her when she was just a child. While she has friends, she has trouble letting them in. Which is why when she let Jensen in it’s a mystery even to her.
Jensen is a hot and sexy dominate. While enjoys being a Dom in the bedroom he is willing to give up control to help the one woman who seems to haunt him. The fact that Jensen lets Kylie tie him up so that he can spend the night shows how serious he is right from the start. Jensen has a wonderful sense as to when to push Kylie and when to leave it alone.
The chemistry between Jensen and Kylie is blistering. It was apparent in the first book in the trilogy Letting Go that these two were made for each other if Kylie can just let go of the past and move forward in her life. The sex scenes were scorching. I enjoyed the fact that Jensen only wanted emotional surrender from Kylie and that physical surrender might not happen due to her past.
Giving In is the second book in the Surrender Trilogy by Maya Banks. While you can read this book as a standalone novel, I find it best read as part of the trilogy to get the full feel of the characters and the situation. I found this book well written with interesting and engaging main and secondary characters. After reading the first book, I could not wait to read this book. I had a hard time putting it down. This was a wonderful book in the series and now I am waiting to read the last book in the series.
