Giving It Up by Audra North
I really enjoy femdom romances - there aren't enough good ones around in my humble opinion - so I was looking forward to reading Giving It Up. Unfortunately though I had a couple of problems with it and ended up just liking the book instead of loving it. I did still enjoy it, just not as much as I was expecting to.
Beatrice has fallen for handsome SWAT officer Warren Davis, but unfortunately he seems to dislike her and actively avoids her. Warren is very attracted to Beatrice but due to family demands he's not got time for a relationship. He also thinks that his sexual desires will be too dark for Beatrice. When she catches Warren on the phone trying to hire a professional Dominatrix, she convinces him to hire her instead. Can he give up his control in the bedroom without giving up his heart too?
The storyline was fun and I loved a lot about it, for me though I struggled with the middle part of the book. It started to feel very slow and I began to lose interest in the story. I also frequently got annoyed with Warren, for some reason he really wound me up! My favourite thing about the book was the heroine, Beatrice. I loved how she took such a big chance to gain Warren's attention and affection, she was a great character. I wish I could award this book more stars, but sadly I can only give it three.
I received an ARC of this book to read and review
