He meets his match. She meets her master.
Art gallery curator Joy Montgomery has never liked her body’s generous curves. And she’s always been too shy to explore her wild side. But tonight, everything is going to change . . .
Desperate to save her job, Joy approaches bad-boy artist Ash Hunter and asks him to exhibit his erotic work at her gallery. Ash agrees on one condition: Joy must pose as his model. But business soon turns to pleasure, as Joy experiences a passion beyond her wildest imaginings and Ash finds more than just inspiration in his voluptuous new muse.
Joy Montgomery is on thin ice with her job as an art gallery curator. She must find a cutting edge artist to feature in her gallery soon or she may be looking for new employment. Determined to save her job she seeks out erotic photography artist Ash Hunter to convince him to do a show, but finds that he is no longer interested in displaying his art. Convinced that Ash and his cutting edge style will be just the thing that will save her job she sets out to convince him. While Joy’s main focus is on saving her job, she can’t deny that she is intrigued and attracted to Ash. When she gets a look at a collection of Ash’s erotic sculptures, she finds herself both captivated and aroused. Disappointed that Ash is not interested in displaying his art, she has a moment of impulsiveness and steals one of the small marble sculptures. She immediately realizes she is out of her mind and tries to figure out how to return the sculpture without getting caught.
Ash and Joy are polar opposites. Joy’s life is happily chaotic. She’s messy, disorganized, and maybe just a little irresponsible. She’s also a insecure with her curvy physique and unlucky the love department. Ash on the hand is a neat freak, and totally organized. He is and ex-Navy Seal and quite orderly in his lifestyle. He likes to combine his two favorites hobbies, BDSM and photography with stunning results. However his physical appearance is more what you’d expect from an artist. He’s a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, disheveled hair and he might forget to shave now and then when he’s engrossed in a project.
Ash and Joy meet at his apartment to discuss business the next night, but Ash has other things on his mind. Although he’s already attracted to her, Joy’s response to his art inspires fantasies erotic bondage and he wastes no time in seducing her. Business takes a backseat as Joy finds herself bound and she surrenders her control to Ash leading to an erotic night of love making. For Joy, this is an impulsive act, true to her character, and for Ash, it’s deliberate and controlled, true to his dominate nature. The two find an immediate connection as opposites attract and begin an interesting relationship that becomes complicated by Joy’s uncharacteristic moment of thievery.
The sexual chemistry between Ash and Joy burns up the pages. These two find themselves participating in a sexual relationship that involves binding from the first time they are together. Ash’s dominate nature appeals to Joy, making her feel safe and she allows herself to submit to Ash’s very sexy will. Ash finds Joy’s willingness to surrender herself irresistible and sexy.
“The beauty of being restrained was giving up control, giving up self-consciousness, giving up everything.
Giving Ash everything.”
I found Joy’s quirky personality charming and Ash’s gentle dominance both sexy and alluring. Lilli Feisty tells a romantic story a of slightly insecure woman who finds the courage to release her inhibitions and accept herself by learning to trust through powerful submission.
Dare To Surrender is an erotic love story that will keep you turning the pages. If you love a sexy read, with very light erotic BDSM, laced with love and romance you will enjoy Dare To Surrender.
