Surrender to You by Shawntelle Madison

In this seductive novel from the author of Bound to You, two career-oriented friends with benefits discover that good morning doesn’t have to mean goodbye.

Late-night booty calls are the most romantic gesture that Carlie Jason expects from business magnate Tomas Goodfellow. Ever since they were teenagers, they’ve provided each other the kind of no-strings pleasures that don’t involve regrets. Now Carlie finds it easier to kiss and run rather than face the fact that she wants so much more. But when she takes a job as a concierge at one of Tomas’s properties, a hotel where the rich and famous get their kink on, Carlie’s tempted to reconsider the rules of surrender.

As the head of an international empire, Tomas knows how to bring out the best in his employees. Putting Carlie in charge of managing the desires of his wealthiest clients was a stroke of genius—only now that she’s close enough to touch, he finds he doesn’t want to let her go. Their long, dark history has built up intimacy in ways he’s only just beginning to understand, but Tomas isn’t ready to trust her just yet. He knows his feelings are more than skin-deep. But first he needs to convince Carlie of one thing: the ties that bind go straight to the heart.

Shawntelle Madison is a new to me author but she's on my radar now, I really enjoyed this story!

Carlie and Tomas have known each other since they were teens. Carlie is an orphan and Tomas came from a rich family from the U.K. Tomas unexpectedly has to leave the states to deal with his father's passing and leaves Carlie with little to no explanation and quite a dose of bitter feelings about how he could abandon her like that. He's the boy she can't forget, and while she does her best to shield her heart, her body always seeks him out when they are in the same place at the same time. Tomas regrets the choices he made and the way he left Carlie all those years ago, and he wants more than the booty calls and the sex without kissing or emotions that they seem to have fallen into the past years. Carlie takes a job for some extra money, while she continues the search for her birth parents. She gets a concierge job at the hotel that Tomas owns and discovers a secret BDSM floor that puts her right into Tomas's sights day in and day out.

I was sucked into Carlie's heartbreak and Tomas's regret and really hoped the two could work out their problems. Add in a nice but lighter dose of kink to their story and you got yourself a good book, totally entertained.

This is the second in the series, and centres on Carlie, one of Sophie's friends. She, too, had a difficult start in life, but has dragged herself up by her bootstraps. Way back at sixteen, she fell for the unattainable guy, and has rare encounters with him even now.

Tomas is a man who has lived by duty and obligation all his life. With a terrible guilty secret, he shields the woman he fell in love with, aged eighteen, from his world. He sees her rarely, but thinks of her often.

The story of two people who let each other go for whatever reason is not new, but these two take personal emotional torture to the extreme. And the author makes us fall into their crazy pattern of behaviour. But maybe, just maybe, the cycle is about to be broken... Rarely have I wanted more to get into the page and tell them both to talk to each other! You will have to read it to find out how things work out, and you will have an enjoyable journey into their lives.

Looking forward to the next adventure, and hopefully a catch up with these two.
