And for a married couple taking steps to renew their marriage, the consequences of one single moment of inattention may come at a price the husband never expects
Chessy and Tate have been married for several years. In the beginning, their relationship was everything she wanted. Passionate. All-consuming. She offered her submission freely and Tate cherished her gift with a tenderness that made her feel safe. Content. Wanted. Loved beyond all measure. But as the years have gone by, Tate has become more immersed in making his business a success, and Chessy has taken a back seat to his business obligations. Growing unhappy with the status of their once blissful marriage, Chessy knows that something has to give, or they stand to lose it all.
Tate loves his wife. Has always loved her. Providing for her has always been his number-one priority. But lately she s seemed unhappy, and he s worried. Worried enough that he arranges for a night together that he hopes will reignite the fire that once burned like an inferno between them.
But a business call at the wrong time threatens everything. Chessy s safety, his concentration, his wife s faith in him as her husband a man sworn to love and protect her above all else. Gutted with the realization that he s going to lose her has already lost her he readies for the fight of his life. Whatever it takes, he ll get her back, show her that nothing is more important than her love. And that if she ll allow him to prove himself one more time, he ll take it all. Everything. But he ll give back far more: Himself. His undying love."

This discomfiting exploration of a troubled marriage wraps up Banks’s Surrender trilogy (Letting Go; Giving In). Chessy and Tate have been married five years, but for the last two, Tate’s focus has been solely on his work, leaving Chessy craving not just his dominance in the bedroom but any attention at all. As they begin trying to salvage their relationship, a trip to their favorite sex club ends in catastrophe. Tate, who was supposed to be watching over helpless Chessy, steps away to take a business call, and another man takes the opportunity to rape her. The drama is more intense than in the previous entries in the series, but with little suspense. While readers may not see anything redeeming in Tate beyond his renewed devotion to his wife, Chessy adores him, and there’s no question of her leaving. The sex scenes are hot, but their juxtaposition with moments of rage and distress is disquieting. Underdeveloped characters and uneven pacing make for an weak conclusion to a trilogy that started with so much promise. (Aug.)
