Unbound Surrender

Since running out on her marriage, and failing miserably with three subsequent relationships, Jessica McNeil has come full circle.  Afraid and nervous, yet determined to battle her personal demons, Jessica knows she has no choice but to confront the man she never stopped loving, her now ex-husband, Stephen Duvall.

As expected, he doesn’t understand why she’s here now, after two years of hoping for her return, and he’s angry.  Stephen’s glad to see her and surprised when Jessica explains what she wants... and needs from him.

Jessica has finally realized that her relationships have failed because of her refusal to simply let go, fully submitting, and she wants Steven to push her limits like never before.  Instead of sharing her fears with her husband, she threw away her collar and her marriage for all the wrong reasons and now she wants another chance.  Unable to help himself, Stephen gives her the discipline and erotic passion she craves realizing that Jessica is no longer the same woman – she’s clearly changed.  But is it too late?

Sierra Cartwright’s stories are so realistic that it’s almost like being in the same room with the characters she’s so lovingly created.  She’s clearly confident in her subject matter of the BDSM world.  I’m not sure that I liked Stephen initially because his hurt and anger over being dumped is quite evident in the beginning pages, but after getting to know him as Jessica did, I too, fell madly in love and lust.  Jessica grows into her strength, but despite that, the reader doesn’t know until the very end if Stephen will take her back.  A thoroughly enjoyable and quick story, UNBOUND SURRENDER is a spicy must read this summer and deserves a Top Pick.
