Maya Banks, Sweet Surrender, (2008), 344p
Sometimes all I want to read is mindless smut. Maya Banks EXCELS at this genre. Yes, I am going to classify mindless smut as it’s own genre – because I think “erotica” can be better written than this.
Sexy cop Grey Montgomery’s partner was killed in the line of duty and he is making it his mission to hunt down the cold blooded killer. Montgomery tracks down a hunch which leads him directly to Faith Malone – small town girl working for her father’s security firm. Montgomery plants himself in the firm to keep an eye on Faith, but soon becomes too close for comfort. When Faith is put in danger, Montgomery realizes he will give up anything to protect her.
This is a blah dom-inspired read which did little to keep me interested. Grey and Faith were both such underdeveloped characters and the plotline was much more “Mary Higgins Clark” than I was expecting. (Don’t get me wrong – I will never shit on MGH – she was one of the first adult authors I read as a kid).
It was mindless and not really even entertaining. I don’t really even know why I continued reading it.
