 The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . DARK DESIRE (The Surrender, #5) . . . This was my first book in the contemporary genre from Lauren Smith. I love her historical romance and the energy, charge, and yes, some with that dark edge. I have to say stepping in to the 21st century was a pleasure filled with dark desire and hidden pleasures. Meeting Elena and Dimitri was a thrilling pleasure all unto itself.

There was just something about a Russian accent. The way they protect. The darkness that they carry. This for me translated though the words/audio narration. With that said, let's discuss Zachary. He has long been a fav for me with narration. He has that something special. He can nail males with distinction. There is a varying quaility. Nice to meet you Vivienne. I will be looking for more from you.     

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Audiobook Empire. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it. 

Elena Allen thought she'd left her dark past behind her after leaving Russia and coming home, but she stumbles into the arms of tall handsome Russian, Dimitri Razin. He warns her that her life is still in danger and that she must trust him even though trusting a man is the last thing she's capable of after what she survived. 

Dimitri Razin knows the hell Elena went through when his hated enemy kidnapped and tortured her for months. As much as he wants to let her be alone to heal, the danger for her is just beginning. In order to save her life, she'll have to trust him in all ways, even with her heart. In return, he'll show her that she doesn't need to fear passion and that she can find her pleasure again.
