Thank You Thursday - A Review!! Sweet Surrender by Victoria Blisse

I love to give little reviews and tidbits about books I'm reading. Here's the most recent book read.

Sweet Surrender by Victoria Blisse
Total-E-Bound, Lust Bite story
35 pages
M/F, exhibitionism, BDSM

She doesn’t know what she wants but he does.

How do you mend a broken heart?

Helen goes on holiday to Scarborough and meets Tom. He is an attractive local artist who takes Helen on a tour of the sweet seaside town. Tom becomes more than just her guide as his dominant nature brings out her own submissive side and a shared joy of exhibitionism.

When I want super hot romance, there's one author I turn to: Victoria Blisse. Why? Her stories are steamy and sweet while keeping the reader wriggling in their seat. The story flows well and I felt like I was right there with the characters, strolling the beach side. By the time I finished the book, I was ready to go back to the beginning and start again.

Oh sure, I wanted to know more about Tom and Helen, but that's part of the nature of a short story. You won't get all the details. It didn't take away from the story at all and really kept me interested. I wanted to know what would happen next. Tom was a bit of a conundrum because I wasn't sure about him at first. Why was he there? Why'd he choose her? But as I read, Ms. Blisse's pacing worked well in revealing him bit by bit. Helen cracked me up. She knows what she wants and is great at stifling herself. She wants to succumb to Tom. Wants to feel him and yet she holds back. It's great to see how these characters come to terms with themselves and their situations. I loved it.

If you want a steamy read for a chilly night, then you need to read Sweet Surrender.
