R E V I E W ➠ Total Surrender by Erika Wilde
Contemporary fairy tales with a dirty, sexy twist!
How far would you go to make the man that destroyed your family pay?
Maddux Wilder is a man consumed, a beast in a three-piece suit. Rich and powerful, he built his empire with one thought in mind: revenge.
After years of patience and planning, the wait is finally over. Tonight, Maddux will finally watch Theodore Cole’s kingdom crumble. At a lavish ball in the New York City castle the Wilder siblings call home, the man that killed their parents will atone for his sins.
If only he’d planned for her.
Arabella Cole is Theodore’s only child; his cherished and sheltered daughter. She’s an innocent, captivating beauty that would do anything to save her loving father, including sacrificing herself.
With her freedom gone, she must surrender to a man she hates. A man that makes her want things she shouldn’t. A man that awakens deep, forbidden desires.
But everyone knows that roses don’t bloom in darkness.
Enter Maddux Wilder, a man that doesn’t believe in fairy tales.
Can the beauty tame the beast or will revenge cost them both everything that matters most?
“He’s right, Bella. ‘m vindictive, merciless. And fucking ruthless.”
“Or maybe you’d like to sass me one more time and find out what I’d like to do to that warm, lush mouth to remind you who is in charge here?”

Not my first read by the author, am very familiar with the style and absolutely enjoyed each book I’ve read from the author.
This book starts off strong and with insta action. Maddux Wilder Meets Arabella at a formal outing, where he proceeds to not be able to stay away from her. So they dance…I really love when a hero swoons in an alpha way, even form the beginning Maddux does that. Only for it to end with the village idiot interrupting! The trick is that Maddux is out for revenge, while Arabella is trying to still find herself in the whole ‘the mess my father has made my whole life.
Arabella is a brave one because she make a deal…THE DEAL…basically a deal with the devil himself. All to try and save her father, she was so brave. Just when Maddux thinks he got himself a sheep…she shows her real stripes and is strong, sassy and again very brave for someone in her statue. This book will have you sizzling, Maddux is not only ruthless and alpha but he enjoys outing punishments as well as pleasure if you know what I mean *smirk* that said, the sex scenes are off the charts hot! You know in some sense you will swoon in the too, it;s the best of both world with this hero!
But Maddux is out for retribution not playing house or having ‘feelings’. When you find out the why, you’ll understand that that man who is now ruthless, has no other way TO feel. It’s a beautiful story of revenge, danger, passion and love. This is the kind of book that I LOVE TO READ! Also why I love the authors books.
What happens when one innocence learns the real filthy and dirty? EXPLOSIVE ENDING is all I can say, be ready…it’s like being on the edge of a cliff and that feeling of almost falling…fan-freaking-tastic, a rush!! So many emotions from both characters, the truth did not set anyone free in this one but just made more realization.
A TOP 2019 MUST READ!
