New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires... When I’m With You, Part V When You Submit Elise feels regret for pushing Lucien over the sensual edge. He is no longer able to deny himself now that he’s taken her, and installs her in his bed for good. At her friend Francesca’s urging, Elise dares something new with Lucien—an attempt at honest communication, and not just about her career plans, but about something more challenging: She wants to submit to him completely. Lucien is moved by Elise’s honesty, but must leave for Paris to attend to one of his father’s companies. Also troubling for Elise is that Francesca and Ian seem to know everything about Lucien, including his secrets. All but one. Something even Elise doesn’t know. Whatever the cost, Elise is determined to confront Lucien about his past, and why, after all they’ve been through, is he just as determined to keep her in the dark. Includes a bonus excerpt of Beth Kery’s Paradise Rules More to come. Don't miss When I’m With You, Part VI, coming 4/9
Elise and Lucien have reached a precipice in their relationship. Elise is learning more about herself and how to please Lucien but little about the secrets Lucien is harboring. Those secrets could destroy their future together.
When You Submit is my favorite story (so far) in this serial. Yes, the sex is hotter and kinkier, but the emotional connection between Lucian and Elise is intensifying as well. Elise is more than a pretty face. She’s a hard worker, and her restaurant idea is amazing. Lucien recognizes that too now. It’s relief to see them connecting more. Elise is really vulnerable. Lucien demands that Elise give herself to him in every way while he remains an enigma to her. Elise recognizes now that she pushes Lucien, and that she does it because she wants him desperately. Her erotic self-discipline lessons teach them both a few things, but Lucien still feel the need to keep her in the dark about his past and his interest in his friend Ian Noble.
