**Review** Giving In ~ Maya Banks

Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she?

Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie’s eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn’t equal pain, bondage or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit—fully to him—will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will.

 Maya Banks. Really her name is recognized by anyone in the book world. If you don't know who she is, I will say you are definitely missing out. Maya is an amazing writer, phenomenal story teller. Personally, I don't feel qualified to review her work. With each new work she brings her readers, you can tell she's put her heart and soul into it. Giving In is no different.

Meet Kylie. We were first introduced to her in Letting Go. Sheltered, yet dying to break free. Smothered, yet dying to breathe. Intelligent, yet lives in the background - afraid of the shadows. Abusive past and no way to move on. Kylie is terrified to make waves. Terrified to break free of the protective barrier that was wrapped around her by her brother and their best friend Dash. She sees his smile. She sees the looks he gives her. She sees the dominance rolling off of him. She avoids him at all costs. She knows he's going to push her.

Jensen knows that Kylie is damaged. He also knows there's a helluva lot more to her than what's been presented to him. He knows what she's capable of, knows what she's terrified of. He knows how to help her break free of the chains that bind her to the past. Now, he has to put her to the test and is certain the only chance he's going to have is when Dash is on his honeymoon.

Giving In, is simply a perfect story of letting go of the past, finding your strength to be the person you are meant to be. Maya Banks. There's no much more I can say about her other than she is masterful with her words. She will hands down always be a "go-to" author for me.

Maya Banks is the #1 New York Times, #1 USA Today and international bestselling author of over 50 novels. A wife and mother of three, she lives in Texas.
