    One thought on “Slow Surrender”

    1. Part of what I hate about scales and measures of media is that it treats content and our experiences of it like a magic equation that somehow makes poorly developed characters or plot not as bad Because Reason. [insert hand waving here]That makes about as much sense as truly believing that the “negative” calories in a diet soda are going to cancel out the candy bar and bag of potato chips you had for lunch. Calories and storytelling don’t work that way. Even if it did, this story has a lot [...]

    2. Where to begin? Okay, let's start with the fact that this is Not a complete story. It is book length but has a cliff hanger ending which I personally don't like. That being said, Slow Surrender was a dark and creepy story. I could not believe the things our heroine, Karina, allowed to be done to her by a total stranger. Where is your self respect, girl? Even if Karina is rebelling against being considered a girly, girl by any man. To totally put yourself in the hands of a virtual stranger seems [...]

    3. Story: GOODIntimacy Level: GOOD + Sex-citingly FUNEnjoyment: FAIRLength: 3246 kindleStyle: Contemporary EroticaI like this story but yet found myself a bit torn, and torn because of my personal taste. This book started out interesting for for me and lighted a fire within the first few scenes. The beginning of the story with the diner scene where Karina and James first interacted with each other, left me wanting more. Karina is a student, looking to graduate and James is your typical guy with mon [...]

    4. Very HOT and unexpected. This one is going on the read again shelf for sure! Worth the read!!! I was the winner of this wonderful book on First Reads. I will be recommending it to my friends!

    5. Looking for that edgy dark seduction that we fell for in 50 Shades of Grey? Slow Surrender slips seductively into sensation and holds a dark promise of passion. Cecila Tan follows into Ms James into the edgy side of passion and gives us another intriguing look into those who dare to live out their fantasies.Karina is the girl who has spent most of her life trying to make her family happy. A solid support for her sister, a "perfect" daughter for her needy clinging mother and yes the kind of room [...]

    6. Awful. Truly Awful. I honestly forced myself to finish this. There's not one part of this story that I liked. James is a mysterious stranger who is instantly attracted to 26 year old grad student Karina Casper. They meet at a bar, where she's filling in for a friend. At first she thought he was 40ish, then 34, but his age wasn't given. He's got blond hair and green eyes. They begin a sexual affair that night that consists mostly of dildos and him preforming oral sex on her, often in the back of [...]

    7. I’m always really wary about reviews that begin with “I don’t like genre/subgenre [x]” like it’s a badge of honor. It inevitably leads to the reviewer making trite observations about what are probably quite sophisticated tropes, and winding up with a comment along the lines of “I’d have enjoyed this romance a lot if the central couple hadn’t got together at the end” or “This space opera would have been so much better if it hadn’t been set in space.”Nevertheless, I feel I [...]

    8. The Cinderella story is a classic fairy tale that lends itself particularly well to retellings in a variety of genres; perhaps too much so, considering how many romance novels use the "poor girl meets rich man, loses him, then gains him again after a search" trope. With that in mind, Cecilia Tan takes the familiar fairy tale and turns it on its head, reimagining it as a grand, lush erotic romance set in New York. Slow Surrender follows the developing relationship between Karina, a fine art grad [...]

    9. Wow, this book was beyond expectations (maybe a 4.5 but I rounded up to 5). An early reviewer on had said that it was what 50 Shades should have been and, of course, I took that with a grain of salt since every author or reviewer says that. But, you know what, that reviewer was almost correct. Actually the writing was really better, the main characters much more believable and especially the female who was witty and very strong in her own way. I liked her a lot. The only drawback was I think sh [...]

    10. By a writer who really knows quite a lot about bdsm, not the 50 silly things that are being said in most books recently, the first in a new series about Karina and a man with a lot of secrets and talents. If this were just a story about Karina's discovery of consensual, seductive play and recreational sex it would be hot and a good read. But it's also a story about a woman who has to negotiate with the real world in real terms: her mother's lectures on femininity, boyfriends and marriage, the se [...]

    11. This is a much better writer's answer to Fifty Shades of Gray that manages to be the same sort of book, written better. Notably, the sex scenes are very individual to the book, reveal the characters and advance the plot. Cecilia Tan has always known what she's doing in her erotica and this book is no exception. That said, it doesn't transcend the conventions of the romance genre as much as I wish it had. There's a predictability to it that was a little disappointing. Still, well worth the read.

    12. So, here's a tale, which may say more about me than this book. I have been reading this, on and off and not really enjoying it too much. The billionaire dom/impoverished Magic Vagina Girl who makes him realise what love is: rather played out. I've read a lot of them and, at this point, it will take some special writing to pull me back. This book didn't have that writing. So, I wasn't giving up, but I was reading other things and coming back to this periodically.This evening, I went through my Ki [...]

    13. Get comfy in your glass slippers and enjoy, ladies! This book from beginning to end was an excitingly erotic ride. Cecilia Tan captivated us right from the start with her different and enticing book, Slow Surrender.Karina Casper is a hard working grad student who has a run in with a mysterious and attractive stranger in the midst of the final Lord Lightning concert frenzy who immediately pushes her sexual lines to new limits beyond her wildest dreams. Feeling strangely comfortable with the man s [...]

    14. A kinky retelling of the Cinderella tale, with a mysterious hero and spunky heroine. Karina is waitressing when she meets James at a bar. Their first interaction is a prelude for the rest of the book. They play a seemingly innocent game with a marble. As the story progresses the games become kinkier. I liked Karina, she was straightforward, open about her wants and honest. James is a mystery, at the end of the book some information is revealed about him. James introduces Karina to many new exper [...]

    15. I don't know what book these people was reading when they compared it to FSOG or Crossfire. Heck I don't know what book they was reading when they said it was a good or great read. I hate giving bad reviews because I feel that any author or person brave enough to put out any book and have other people judge it should be awarded. So I want to start off by saying that I applaud the author and maybe its just not a book for everyone. Maybe you will pick it and love it. Me on the other hand It was a [...]

    16. Having a snow day off from work allowed me to read this in one sitting. My only complaint is that it is a relatively short novel, and now I have to wait for the second in the series! Since I am probably the first reviewer, I'm going to make the inevitable comparison: This novel is 50 Shades of Grey written by a capable writer who knows how to convey erotic experience. Plucky grad student and part-time waitress meets mysterious stranger with a hint of British accent and a really big hint of wealt [...]

    17. wow is anyone feeling hot hot hot. as I am after reading this book of James and karina. karina was standing in at her sister bar for a girl who was unwell and that is where she met a sexy man who wanted to play games and games they definitely played. James was hiding a secret and karina didn't no what but the more games they played the more she found out about him and slowly began to fall in love with him bit then after a night of fun and passion things went wrong. I usually hate cliffhangers bu [...]

    18. I enjoyed it from the get go! I think in reality it would be awesome to have some rich guy come and invite me to play this little game with them haha.Okay let me start off by saying I am getting really tired of EVERY BDSM book being compared to fifty shades! Fifty shades is NOT BDSM, yes there is kink but a Dom he was not! SO please can everyone STOP holding fifty shades up to this high standard that it really shouldn't be held to. This book was good on its own merit! I did not once think of fif [...]

    19. 5 Incredible Stars I received a copy of Slow Surrender through Net Galley and Forever(Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for my honest review.I absolutely loved this book. Yes it has the "fantasy" aspect to it because it has the "connect at first meeting," but it worked in this case. I couldn't put this one down once I started. I've seen this compared to 50 Shades of Grey and other works related to the BDSM scene, but this one is so different. Yes it has the filthy rich man, (James) who snags [...]

    20. “The game is very simple. I ask you to do something and you do it.”Karina is an Art History graduate student without a firm goal as to what to do with her education. Against the backdrop of the last concert of a legendary musical performer’s career, she meets the mysterious male protagonist while temporarily filling in at a restaurant her sister manages. The night’s tribulations also include her new thesis advisor and a man with whom she recently had a job interview. While avoiding the o [...]

    21. This books just stuns me! I read about 3-4 books a week and I come across some duds. But sometimes I find a book that I just want to continuously read, a book, that when I'm in a land of trashy books with spelling errors and unbelievable changes of heart, I need to go read my favorite part to cleanse my brain! That is exactly what Slow Surrender is! Not only did I love the story, but I loved the characters and the build up. It was worth every penny and minute I put into reading it. If you're not [...]

    22. Finally, a book of erotica that is 1) decently written; 2) actually has a pretty good plot; and 3) doesn't go over the same old trite stuff. There's actually originality here, people. And Cecilia Tan throws in what amounts to a BDSM public service announcement here and there, too. What makes this book really good is that it completely normalizes the sex life of these two protagonists. They live in a culture of acceptance, and deftly separate themselves from the people who don't. I applaud Tan fo [...]

    23. Gosh, I read this so long ago! I can't believe the sequel STILL isn't out. That said, it says it will be out this month, fingers crossed. Do I still care? Yea, I still do. Though, if this is a trilogy and we have to wait ANOTHER year for the last book, I will be seriously PISSED!

    24. I really liked it, but I wish I'd known there would be a cliff hanger and the next book won't be out for a year.

    25. I really liked it. I wish there was a more emotional connection between the two but if nothing else the sexual connection was hot.

    27. Several things in this fiction book really bothered me. 1. The main character Karina - was she living under a rock? She was absolutely annoying. Living in New York and she jump into a stranger's limo. 2. Her comment about her not putting on make up, fixing her hair, wearing skirts, blah blah blah would end up her getting into trouble?!?!? 3. She is 26 years old and she has never worn a skirt and worn heels before but she will wear a ball gown, a tiara, have her hair done and wear make-up for a b [...]

    28. Do you ever feel like you're an alien? Or like other people are reading completely different books than you are? Am I somehow genetically incapable of liking anything? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN. What I thought I thought I was getting with this book: a psychologically twisty, emotionally intense version of those dull "Generic Billionaire Meets Human Female" books, where the characters were going to be real and the chemistry raging. What I actually got: exactly the same book as those dull "Generic Bil [...]
