Publisher's Summary

Josephine needs a Dom to Top her if she's going to conquer her issues with men. But when Ted, the frenemy she's chosen, refuses, Jo needs to take drastic measures. She goes to his resort to find another candidate. Unfortunately, that plan's a bust.
Headstrong Jo is a Dom's worst nightmare. So when Ted discovers that a newbie has signed the "Full Monty" release form - an occurrence that has the resident sadists circling - he knows it's Jo.
What's a Dom to do? After he thanks her for giving him carte blanche, he hauls her ass up to the rodeo room for a ride. A ride that rapidly becomes a trip of epic proportions with kinky detours galore until they hit a fork in the road. One avenue leads to Jo's prized independence and the other leads home to Ted. Now, Jo must decide between the two.

Required Surrender-this book is Convoluted

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who just likes the hot scenes and doesn't care the hardened submissive whom the very experienced Dom finally broke through her shell to find the pain underneath...thinks all her emotional hang-ups will suddendly be fixed because he decrees it so. So if she stumbles at first under stress that is wrapped around her pain he doesn't understand how She could so betray him!!!

What could Riley Murphy have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Please give that heroine a backbone and a tiny bit of real common sense! What's the biggest travesty? He,her Dom, tenderly helped her acknowlege what happened to her and how it has adversley effected her life since. And to himself realizes there must be more to the story she hasn't been able to discuss,yet. But starts a relationship with her that MUST be totally honest because of hang-ups from his past! Any wonder she couldn't become this paragon? Pushing the most trust driven relationship between a Dom/sub into emotional abuse!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I found no problems with the narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I tried three times to finish this book but the charecters are so unbelievable,the angst levels running high throughout and the very real pain of innocents..I just wanted no part of a BDSM style book where the Dom has NO understanding of his sub. Insteads tries to break her so she'll go away.

Any additional comments?

The beginning was great! Fantastic surprises. A gruff Dom who's been hurt so now only trains subs but never enters a relationship. Discovers the beauty underneath a spitfire sub whom he gentles into her telling some of the betryal and pain which has been a part of her every breath since her 16th Birthday. then he forgets all he's learned as a sought after Dom of more than a decade forgets all he's learned about his new sub and reacts and lives only through the pain he suffered years ago that He never got over!! I can't say I'd trust this Author again if this is how she views a Dom/sub...all aspects of BDSM is about these levels of emotional abuse! This book WILL BE RETURNED.
