Title: Letting Go
Series: Surrender Trilogy, #1
Author: Maya Banks
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her. Dominance. Lonely and searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find is the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend. 

 Dash has lived in an untenable position for years. In love with his best friend’s wife and unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

 When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.

Letting go begins with Joss going to the grave of her dead husband to say goodbye for the last time. It has been three years, and she's ready to move on finally. She's going to start by doing the things that she couldn't get from her husband even though they had a beautiful relationship. In comes Dash who was Joss's husband's best friend, and a good friend to Joss. The thing is he has been in love with Joss for years but never acted on it because of his best friend. And now that his friend has been gone for so long, and he finds Joss in a place he never thought he would he's determined to make her his. But these two have a whole lot to go through before they can have a happily ever after, if they can even get one now. 

 I thought this book was okay to be honest. I actually wanted to stop it about twenty percent into the book. Because seriously several conversations where replayed over and over again but just in different words. It was so annoying. But once I got past that I just felt really bored with the story. I just felt like it could have been a lot more. Other than that I liked most of the characters, and most of the writing as well. The thing that I most wanted though was to find out more about Chessy and Tate's relationship, or what the problem was anyways. But alas that didn't happen. I hope they get a book or at least their problems get explained later on because that was more interesting to me then the first part of the book
