But do not come back into my office. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. And she hated that feeling, had sworn no one—no man—would ever make her feel vulnerable and afraid again. After collecting her ticket she headed inside the darkened interior. I read Letting Go by Mira Banks the first in her and struggled to completely connect with characters.
Her world felt tilted on its axis. Joss from the first book is happy to enter the life of a submissive, and Chessy from the upcoming last book is married to her Dom. I love Maya Banks and I love her books. Covers all the emotional range. An anxious looking waiter immediately appeared, offering his assistance, asking if she needed help. We do not store files, because it is prohibited.
His words terrified her and yet there was something about them that made her pulse kick up several notches. She glanced hastily around, noticing, to her discomfort, how intimate they appeared. She glanced down self-consciously, wondering if she was dressed appropriately for this joint. I'm ready for the next ride now! Black spots danced in front of her eyes and she tried again to pull in a breath, anything to ease the horrible pain in her chest. Something he did with more frequency ever since coming to work with Dash. The Sweet Series is made up of six books.
Stubborn, impossible, completely overbearing man. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. But Jensen was frustratingly unaffected by her icy demeanor around him. His need for control precluded any warm and fuzzy thoughts. It must not have been very pleasant. Maya Banks has a husband and three children and lives in Texas with their pet dog. Surrender to the powerful sensuality and erotic romance of Maya Banks and her sensational new trilogy.
A dominant, alpha male was the very last thing she wanted. Peeling back the layers of her skin—and her mind. He cared, but to what extent? Please, can we just leave? The coffee is always on and she is ready to chat. Are you so afraid of loving someone, of getting close to someone and losing them like you lost Carson? She punched no time clock. She did her job quietly and efficiently, never drawing attention to herself. Especially a man like Jensen. She was walking a very fine line between sanity and insanity.
And her shoes were flats, though they did have some sparkle to them. And for some people, physical control is less important the emotional control. She needed to remember that he was a natural born predator. The dark promise in his eyes. There are no degrading and demoralizing 'scenes' at the sex club in these books, and no sexual sharing between three, four, or even five partners as in other Banks books. She was a woman who was strictly off-limits to him.
Just like everyone else in the human race. The plot is well done, and the characters were ones I became vested in, but at times the conversations between characters and declarations felt awkward, drawn out and overdone. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. Joss was a good woman. That put another sour expression on her face. That this was a man not to be trifled with. But especially not a dominant, alpha, overbearing male.
Something to conquer before he moved on to the next? But blingy sandals or flip flops? Carson had been her boss, he and Dash. The complete antithesis of the women he liked to fuck. The Armstrong clan and the Montgomery clan are sworn enemies, just like the Montagues and the Capulets. 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. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. It made him want to hold her, cherish her, show her how it could be with a man who had her best interests at heart.
