Maya Banks--Sweet Surrender (Sweet #1)

Romantic suspense-erotic

Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner and bring him to justice. So far, he's found a link between the killer and Faith - and if Gray has to get close to he to catch the killer, so be it.

Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she's playing games. No way would she allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she?

Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance. So she takes matters into her own hands to prove to him it's no game she's playing. She's willing to surrender to the right man. Gray would like to be that man. But catching his partner's killer has to be his first priority - until Faith is threatened and Gray realizes he will do anything to protect her...

Like it, didn't love it, but liked it enough to read the next one. Something was just off for me, the first half is a slow moving build up, aiming for a strong love story. But then pops in short bursts of erotic interludes that at times didn't quite fit with the path my mind was going. Add to that the suspense, danger, drama going on with catching a murder and it just seemed too unemotional for me, even though there was lots of emotions being played out in the end. I didn't truly connect with any of the characters except Micah. This is my first Maya Banks book, so I don't know if this is her writing style, or that this is the first book in the series and it's not quite developed emotionally. Either way, I'm willing to read the next one before I make up my mind about the series.
