"Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she? Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie's eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn't equal pain, bondage or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit fully to him will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will. "--… (more)

Both had severe childhood abuse, Kylie still hasn't recovered and Jensen not only wants to help her but keep her. It's a wonderful story, very touching how these two find their way through their past trauma. He's that wonderfully supportive we all wish for ourselves and our daughters. We also get to revisit with Dash and Joss, sneak peeks of Chessy and Tate who are the stars of the next book.

DESCRIPTION, NOT REVIEW: Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she?

Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie’s eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn’t equal pain, bondage or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit fully to him will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will. ( )

Mistryně klasických harlekvínek a neuvěřitelného patosu s citovým nátlakem opět vyráží.
Do Kylie, která byla v dětství sexuálně zneužívaná svým otcem, se zakouká Jensen- hrozně mocný dominant posedlý kontrolou. Probourá její obrannou zeď složenou z paštěkování a dokonce kvůli ní se dopustí největší oběti, které je dominant schopen: předá jí kontrolu.
Teda pouze v posteli. Což znamená, že Kylie Jensena v posteli sváže (no, přikurtuje mu jednu ruku k pelesti), aby sex dirigovala ona a on neudělal něco, co jí ublíží, připomene znásilňování.
Jenže Jensen má taky traumíčko, jeho matku týral jeho otec. A proto je velkej dominant- aby vždy ženy chránil a nedopustil, aby jim bylo ublíženo!:-D
Ale díky traumatu trpí somnambulií a v noci Kylie ublíží. Rozchod. Týdenní alkoholová tryzna.
A veeelký hepáček, dominant už je zas přikurtovanej k posteli:-D
Díky tomu, že část příběhu se točila kolem smutku Kyleiny kamarádky CHessy, kterou její manžel a Pán poněkud opomíjí, je jasné, o kom bude třetí díl;-)

Giving In, book two olf the Surrender Trilogy by Maya Banks is for a mature audience because of the emotional situations and story lives.

In Book 1, Breathless threw the reader into emotional boundaries. Now the reader is asked to cross them, remembering the past, and deciding if and when to give in.

Dominance frightens Kyle due to childhood violence and abuse. But now she is being asked to surrender to Jensen, who may hurt her, or will he? Should she let Jensen fill the void in her heart, or move on?
I recommend this book and an anticipation into a future Book 3. ( )

I much prefer this authors other action-driven stories over this character-driven romance. It didn't keep my interest. I struggled to continue reading even skimming and eventually just skipped to read the last couple chapters. Jensen is attracted to Kylie but proceeds cautiously knowing she's been abused.
