What happens when a Dominant falls for his not-so-submissive attorney? Martin Abrams, owner of Master M’s BDSM club, has become unfulfilled with his lifestyle. Ever since his sub, Gracie, left to marry her true love, Martin has lost his way. Living the life of the head Dominant in his circle isn’t as appealing as it once was. Something seems to be missing. Sassy lawyer Arianna Covington relocates to New York City after a humiliating divorce. She’s looking for a fresh start when she agrees to become Martin’s exclusive attorney. She’s intrigued by his domineering personality and wants to know why women kneel at his feet. Their attraction is undeniable despite Ari’s initial beliefs that she will never submit to Martin’s desires. But Martin is up for the challenge. Arianna is more than he ever imagined in a woman. He vows to claim her heart, with or without the games. Who will surrender first? Featuring Cade and Gracie from Make Me Stay.

My Review:

Wow!! I loved this book! I have read books with BDSM relationships before, but Surrender to Me took the Dom/Submissive on a new level!

I love how Ella Jade made the "sub" not really a submissive. Arianna Covington is a strong, independent, successful lawyer who has climbed her way to the top with hard work, dedication to her cases, and intelligence. She has relocated to escape the aftermath of a nasty divorce from a cheating husband and decides to fully take on a client on as her one and only. She has no idea what she is getting into when she agrees to his terms.

Martin Abrams is a well established business man, extremely wealth, and is also the owner of Master M's a BDSM club. He has vowed to not take on another submissive since his last one left him to get married after he fell in love with her. He knew all along that she as only there to be trained for her Dom boyfriend, but he couldn't control his heart. His world is about to be turned upside down when he hires a new real estate attorney that is about to make him question his lifestyle, and second guess if he could ever have a "vanilla" relationship and fore go his BDSM ways.

I give Surrender to Me 4 stars on the knock my socks off scale. I love the twists that the author included to make this well used topic fresh and gave BDSM a new perspective. I literally read this book in one sitting and was rooting for Martin to finally be able to give his heart to someone that could dominate him right back. Kudos to Ella Jade for a very well written story with romance, steamy sex, drama, and angst!

 Promise Me This by Sarah Ashley Jones

Cover Design by Okay Creations.
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Welcome to the South - where the tea is sweet and the accents are sweeter. This Southern way of life is all Charlie has ever known. It’s not until she loses the only person who pushed her to break free of the Southern Belle mold that she starts living the life she needs and not the life her parents forced on her.

Jhett has lived on the edge for as long as he could remember - constantly teetering back and forth between being a rock star and living a normal life. His rebellious and sometimes arrogant attitude is known to get him into trouble, especially with the girls who hang on his every move.

Charlie never thought that a trip to pack up her brother’s apartment would leave her feeling even more unsettled about the grainy details of her brother’s death. Her quest for information leads her straight to his old hangout and into arms of Jhett, who suspiciously knows more about her situation than he ever should.

Only a few questions remain - Can you trust someone based on their word alone? And if you make a promise, how far will you go to keep it?

About The Author

Sarah Ashley Jones was raised in San Diego, California, but currently wrangles her husband and four dogs in Clarksville, Tennessee. When she's not writing she works in a pottery studio and comes home covered in paint on a daily basis. She has a slightly unhealthy obsession with cupcakes and chapstick. She is an eternal optimist and can often be found dancing and singing to music at any given time. It's rare to see her not smiling or laughing, but if you do, just bring her a cupcake and it will cheer her up.

Promise Me This is her first novel and is a story that weaseled its way into her heart and wouldn't leave her alone until she typed it up on the computer. She already is hard at work on ideas for her next book and hopes that the
characters never stop coming to her. Her huge imagination was always in overdrive as a child and now she is beyond excited to put it to good use as an adult. She plans to write as long as she has stories that need to be told.


      “Is there something on my face?” I asked, mid-wipe. 
      “You’ve got a little…frosting…” He chuckled as he brought his hand up to my cheek and ran the gentle pad of his thumb over my now parted lips.  He inspected his work and frowned.  “I don’t think I got it all…” His voice was a low growl as he leaned in and kissed the corner of my lips; trailing feathery kisses at a teasingly slow place down to the center of my bottom lip, before sucking it all the way into his mouth.  He nibbled on it softly while he tangled his hand into my hair and deepened the kiss. I was leaning into him, craving more of his touch with each second that passed. 
      Jhett brought his other hand up to my cheek, cupped my face with both hands, and broke the kiss.  I let out an unexpected whimper as he drew my forehead in to his.  “Any more of that, and we won’t make it to the rest of your birthday presents,” he said between breaths. 
      I sat back and folded my hands into my lap.  “Well, if we get to do that again as one of them, I’m all about it,” I smirked at him.
