Includes a bonus excerpt of Lauren Jameson's upcoming novel, "Blush." More to come...Don't miss "Surrender to Temptation," Part II, available 1/8.

Been looking for a good chapter by chapter series and Tempted To Submit sounded interesting. Unfortunately I was not into it and could not get connected with the characters. I felt there was too much detail in the beginning on what Devon was doing leading up to when she first meets Zach. Already was losing interest by the time she met him. When she catches her fianc√© cheating was not feeling her pain. Zach was not appealing at all. There was just not enough there for me to get into him. I needed to know more about him and his thoughts. Really I was not feeling his Hot and Cold. For me I need more sexual tension leading up to the hero and heroines first sexual encounter. They meet, he hires her, a night out later they have sex in the back of his car. The plot sounds so good and it does have potential but for me I wish the first part was more of a build up leading to their first sexual experience when she submits. That on a sad note I will not continue on Devon’s and Zach journey.

  1. This is the challenge.with releasing serials. It's a little tricky to get the same enthusiasm as you would usually have with a full length novel in so few chapters. It's like reading a teaser.

    1. I agree. I really enjoy Beth Kery's serial and it is harder now to find one as good. I like how in hers they did not sleep together in the first few chapters.


Hello Lovelies. Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear from you.
