    1. UPDATE: December 2016Reread this book and what a wonderful book it is! So quote-worthy, made me regret that I owned a paper copy and note also an eBook version, which makes them so much easier to highlight and share. Am very tempted to buy the eBook version in another year or so just so I can reread and finally keep track of all the wonderful lines and passages. Andreas is just SO dreamy! The epitome of the rough, tortured, haunted hero. Delicious to the nth extreme!The POV being only from Andre [...]

    2. “It builds character to be told no.”“You must have a lot of character then.”“That is kind of you.” Warm smile.“I was being rude.”“Well, then at least I can say you are an honest man.” I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book!!!!!!“I am a vile man.” He gave her a feral smile, letting the darkness rise. “The absolute worst you will ever meet.”“That is absurd, Mr. Merrick.” The darkness froze, then began undulating, snapping at an unseen threat. “How do you know [...]

    3. Well, it's been a while since I enjoyed a romance as much as I did this one. Mostly the honors go to Andreas, one of my favorite heroes ever, but Phoebe was a lovely, feisty heroine who matched him perfectly while the banter between them was amazing. Though the tone was dark and sentimental mostly, there were many scenes that made me laugh out loud, lightening the mood and making me read them again and again, as if I couldn't get enough of them.Our story starts when Miss Phoebe Pace visits Mr Me [...]

    4. This is my first book by Anne Mallory. Perhaps if I had read books 1 and 2 of the Secrets series I would have enjoyed this and been able to understand it more. I found myself floundering, trying to get a grasp on the plot. However, I have read numerous other historical romances where I have started mid-series and easily been able to read those books as stand-alones. So I'm unsure whether this is due to the author's writing style or simply that In Total Surrender must be read as part of a whole s [...]

    5. Loved it. A keeper. A joy. (Not perfect -- see end bit -- but perfect for me.) This is a subtle love story, not a bodice ripper, despite the cover art. Gradually the sexual anticipation simmers, ending in sweet and sizzling fade-to-black love scenes. Its greatest strength is relationship development and characterization. Not a lot of action / adventure, but enough. Part of a series, yet it stands alone just fine.Andreas is a BAD MAN who trusts no one but his brother and his old nanny. He is the [...]

    6. What an absorbing book! This is why I love Anne Mallory.I’m the kind of reader who finishes a book and immediately moves on the next one. I’m having trouble maintaining that pattern after this one – I don’t want to let it go. I can totally understand why sometimes readers will finish the last page of a book and head straight back to page one to read it again. This is that kind of book.It’s also the kind of book that I find impossible to review. There’s so much I want to say, but I do [...]

    7. EXCELLENT!! Almost as good as Seven Secrets of Seduction. :)Are there going to be more books in this series? Me wants!Note: I received this eARC from HarperCollins via NetGalley. That had no influence on my rating.

    8. Andreas Merrick is the king of London's dark underworld, having amassed unimaginable wealth and powerd a fierce reputation that leaves even the bravest men quaking in their boots. Yet one person is maddeningly unintimidated by his fearsome presence: the persistent Miss Phoebe Pace.Equal parts honey and steel, Phoebe will stop at nothing to find her missing brother and save her family. Though associating with Andreas means peril and scandal, she never expects to experience a passion so intense th [...]

    9. ¡Lo amé! Realmente maravilloso. Me ha encantado de principio a fin, si no fuera porque tengo poco tiempo lo volvería a leer porque es muy lindo! Me encanta, me encanta, me encanta.Es como totalmente diferente a la hora de desarrollar el romance, Phoebe es maravillosa, es una luz, es enérgica, es divina, es perfecta para Andreas. Ella realmente, realmente es buenísima. Me encanta como se desenvuelve todo, es una conquista de los sentidos, quiero destacar que ellos no sienten una atracción a [...]

    10. I haven’t met a more anti-hero hero than Andreas. But I love him for it. He might, in fact, be my favorite Anne Mallory hero yet. Andreas is unfeeling; not incapable of emotion, just unwilling to feel. And he uses this to his advantage in his business dealings. He doesn’t have pleasure dealings because that means having to deal with people. But then he meets the unstoppable Phoebe. It was a great narrative choice to write the book mainly from his perspective. He is so baffled and befuddled a [...]

    11. I was in the mood for a little historical. This was a new author to me, so this appealed too. The characters in this book were a real puzzle to me. But they were fascinating enough for me to keep reading. This book was very well written. But I felt somewhat detached from the hero and heroine for some reasonThere were occasional glimpses of them in touch with their emotions but not enough to increase the emotional intensity of this book. The sexual chemistry was present but again the writing & [...]

    12. I loved this book!It was a heck of a lot of fun to read a book where the heroine is the aggressive one, relentlessly pursuing the hero. And Phoebe is just brilliant - even knowing she was smart, that she was setting things up the way she wanted them to play out, I was surprised several times by her absolute brilliance as things fell into place and the extent of her "handling" of the situation became apparent. Phoebe is also remarkably fair. Usually when you are dealing with an anti-hero (which A [...]

    13. The Good and the Bad I am so torn on this book. The Good: This book had the all-time best written characters. The witty banter, basically all conversations between the hero and heroine were so so well written. I couldn't put the book down because their interactions sucked me in like no book has done for awhile. The hero's stoic, uninterested, intimidating behavior was such a perfect match to the heroine's sunny, take charge, unintimidated personality. The Bad: This book had the all-time worst, n [...]

    14. There are a lot of things I liked about this book, but I could see how it might not be for everyone. Here are a few of my thoughts:The bad:All the bad-ass, unbeatable fighter stuff. Our H regularly takes on five or so "assassins" at one time all by himself. Either the villains who keep taking shots at him are incompetent, or he's Captain America. The good:Mallory does a great job writing our h as the aggressor of the relationship, without making her clingy or desperate. Unfortunately, when femal [...]

    15. Oh my goodness, I so loved this novel. Was thrown at the first as it took me a few pages to realize that I was seeing things through Andreas eyes. And Phoebe, the soul of lightness who's very inner core of hope and determination that will save Andreas from himself and the darkness he surrounds himself with. Wonderful!

    16. 1.5/5; 2 stars; C-I thought this book was really poorly written. I found it confusing, aimless, and obscure. I wanted to like it because I really did like the characters of Andreas and Phoebe but for most of it I was checking to see how close it was to being done.

    17. Yazar ile ilk tanışmamız serinin 3. kitabıyla oldu ama ben sevdim,zaten kendisi de çok nazik ve kibar bir bayan,o yönden kalbimi fethetmişti.Kitabı da sevince bundan sonra takip edeceğim yazarlar arasında yerini aldı. :D

    18. I really like this book! The hero and the heroine are both great ! He's so cold , but underneath he has heart . Head tilt :) Loved it!

    20. Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick Oh how I loved this book! It took me a little while to get into the groove of it, but once I did I was hooked. I just couldn't put the book down. In the beginning I felt a bit overwhelmed and I had a little trouble following along. I felt a little lost. I'm not sure if it's because I hadn't read the book previous to this one, or if it's just how it was meant to be. But once I got into the swing of things and got into Andreas Merrick's way of [...]

    21. Redonk Nutshell: Underworld boss meets his match when a Lady inserts herself into his lifeAndreas Merrick is, in short, a bad ass. He and his brother-from-another-mother run London's underworld. Andreas has taken over temporarily while his bro is on his honeymoon, and while under normal circumstances this wouldn't be a problem, it becomes one when Miss Phoebe Pace enters the picture. The Pace family owns and runs a successful carriage manufacturing business, and Andreas has been working behind t [...]

    22. This review was originally posted on The Historical Romance Critic."'You propose to whore for me?' He had chosen the words deliberately. Her smile slipped, and she looked at him for a long moment, and for the first time he had no idea what was going through her head. 'No. I did not mean it in that manner, though I see now how you might have interpreted such a thing from my words.' Bloody head tilt. 'Is that what you require? I don't know that I'd be very good at it, as I lack the necessary exper [...]

    23. Oh!” This was said brightly, as if she was happy he had noticed. “I decided I needed my own workspace, instead of constantly infringing upon yours.So I had a few of the boys move a desk in here.”He stared at the petite,feminine, desk that was pushed against his. And wondered how the bloody hell she had managed to convince men who were terrified of him to move the desk inside his domain.“Absolutely not.”***Two hours later, he was still scowling as she happily worked on whatever the hell [...]

    24. Ben bu kitaba BA-YIL-DIMM! Baştan sona keyifle, 32 diş sırıtarak okudum. Andreas Merrick sen ne tatlı, ne şeker, ne sahiplenici, ne aşık, ne korkusuz, ne gururlu, ne harika bir adamsın yahuu Phoebe'nin bilerek veya bilmeyerek Andreas'ı zorladığı sahneler resmen ballı kaymakli tatlilara es değerdi gözümde. Tadları damağımda kaldı.Adam resmen kadını gördü ve pufff bütün o yapmam etmem dediği şeyleri tek bir gülücük icin yapar oldu ama yine de o asil soğuk ve ruhsuz [...]

    25. An absolute fabulous read! Well done Ms. Mallory! The twists and turns were completely unexpected. Andreas was an island. He didn't need human touch, emotions or anything that showed a weakness. Phoebe was a woman of touch, emotions and showed a true strength of character and didn't mind showing those that she loved her softer side. Once she caught sight of Andreas and learned about him and his ways then she knew that here was a man that would protect all her secrets whatever they may be. So beg [...]

    26. This is a book about a lady who's part of her family's carriage-making business mini-empire. She becomes involved with a stern businessman for vague reasons relating to, maybe, conspiracy, financial collapse, and (possibly) murder. She finds Stern Businessman super hot, but alas, Stern Businessman is grumpy and alarmed by his response to her. I don't understand this book and will probably not finish it. The sexual tension between the two main characters is fine, but it just goes on and on and on [...]

    27. A very pleasing book with admirable main characters.Phoebe was very lovable.She was smart,kind,optimistic,willful,stubborn and just perfect for Andreas.Andreas was a force to be reckoned with.He was amazing.His selflessness,loyalty,courage,power and his darkness,can make anyone fall in love with him.Anne Mallory has spun a delightful tale with this book.The way in which Phoebe inserted herself in Andreas's life was very interesting.And it was simply beautiful and amusing the way Andreas tried to [...]

    28. Andreas and Pheobe4.5 stars. This was an extremely delighful read! I loved wathcing Pheobe wear Andreas down. And once Andreas decided he wanted Pheobe he was no holds barred. The first 1/3 of the book was from Andreas perspective and I really like that. I liked having his point of view so much and watching him be totally confused by what she was doing to him. The notes on the food baskets were hysterical. The puppy drawings were classic.My one complaint was the sex scene. It was more a fade to [...]
