Novel Review: Dare to Surrender by Lilli Feisty

Rating (Out of 5): ~4.5
Genre: Erotica/Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing/Forever (Hachette Book Group)
Release Date: 2010
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:


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.

The Cover:

This cover is all right. I don't like it quite as much as the others, but it still fits the book pretty well. The couple, the position, and the color all fit with the feel of the book, which I like. It's still embarrassing, and not quite as good, but overall it's not too bad.


"'Maybe it’s true. Maybe opposites attract… and then you have to look at the core to see what matches up.’” (Mass Market Paperback, pg. 247)
I absolutely love this book. It is definitely my favorite of Feisty’s so far (and I’ve really enjoyed her other ones).
I liked both of the characters. Joy makes a dumb decision in this book, and she tries to avoid it, but she deals with so much other stuff throughout the book. Her (mostly) horrible grandmother, her job, everyone telling her what a mess she is. I feel like I understood her a little, and I liked her a lot. Ash is going through some stuff as well, but he grows up in this book, finally gets to stand on his own, see what he wants.
Ash was good for Joy, and Joy fit with Ash perfectly. They can be really good for each other. And the D/s elements, oh my… They were fantastic. Perfectly done. Ash already knows what he wants in that area, and Joy is interested but a little new to it. But Joy easily, happily gives into it, and I loved that. There were quite a few very nice, sexy scenes in this book, and I loved all of them. They were really good.
The romance in this book is definitely one of my favorites, but I also really liked the character development. Joy and Ash went through quite a bit in this book, and they came out of it even better. And the ending was perfect.
I loved this book. It’s definitely a favorite at this point. And I really want Feisty to release another full-length novel, because I don’t think she has, and I really, really want to read more.
