Release Day Review: BOUND TO SURRENDER by Jenna Jacob (The Doms of Genesis)


After suffering a brutal hate crime, submissive Trevor Hammond’s outward appearance projects the usual carefree demeanor his friends know and love. But inside, the remnants of his battered psyche and the ghosts of his assailants keep him bound in chains of anxiety.

While his Master, Moses Abrams, aka Daddy Drake, is aware of the devastation consuming his precious sub, he finds himself powerless to neutralize his lover’s demons. Embarking on an unconventional journey, Drake is determined to find a way to heal and bring back the man who owns his heart.

Will his love be enough to draw Trevor back from the darkness?



While Bound to Surrender is part of The Doms of Genesis series, it can easily be read as a standalone.  When the story first starts, it does feel like you've walked in to the middle of a story-and you actually have-but the background comes soon enough and gives the reader plenty of history to understand what has happened and what the characters are going through.

I'll say this for the author--she had my heart breaking for Trevor from the very first page.  To have gone through what he has is unthinkable, particularly when you see how sweet a young man he is.  Drake, his Dom, has seen him through something similar before...but this time is different, and trying to help Trevor has been an exercise in frustration which is tearing Drake apart.  

This is a story of healing-if done in what most people might believe is an unconventional way.  But when you get right down to it, it really isn't unconventional when seen through the lens of the BDSM lifestyle-and Trevor's own personal wants and dreams.  With the heightened emotions given the horrible brutality Trevor went through, the resulting scenes are intense and the sensuality heightened.

Bound to Surrender is an emotional ride, and it was a 4-star read for me.  I'd recommend this story to M/M BDSM romance fans, but also those who haven't read M/M before-the message is universally applicable.  This story is meant strictly for those readers 18+ due to adult language, explicit M/M sexual content, and disturbing flashbacks to the attacks Trevor went through which may be a trigger for some readers sensitive to violent gay bashing.
