Yield (verb): to surrender or submit (oneself) to another
Macy Carrington is broken. The strong, beautiful woman that I’ve unwittingly fallen in love with is all kinds of broken from a secret that she has carried for far too long.
A secret so dark, she has gone to great lengths to protect it.
A secret that I’m terrified will one day rip her away from me.
The only time Macy frees herself from the darkness is when she is naked and in my arms. When I am deep inside her body, there is nothing she fears. When she wraps herself around me, she is at peace.
If she would only yield to me completely, I know I can set her free.
We have reached the conclusion of Cal & Macy’s story, and what a story it was. CLASH set the story up, introducing us to the characters and giving us a mere glimpse of Cal & Macy’s sizzling attraction. GRIND took us on a mostly erotic journey while building up Macy’s secret and Cal’s desire to unearth it. YIELD blows us out of the water when the totality and horror of her secret is slowly and finally revealed.
Everything comes to a head with the FBI investigating her family’s companies and seizing her assets while demanding she reveal the reason for a family trip made 11 years prior. Fearing the secret will disgust Cal and send him running, she tries to push him away first, which of course does nothing more than force Cal to unleash a temper he doesn’t normally have.
I have no control over myself. It’s like I’m a puppet controlled by fury, totally without reason or logic. One hand goes from her shoulder to the front of her throat where I grip her gently, but with enough surety that she’s not going anywhere.
But Cal is determined to push through her walls and become the white knight he desperately wants to be for Macy. But in doing so, she realises that he has already saved her. He believes in her. He is willing to do anything to get justice for her. More importantly, when he says she’s worth it, she starts believing him. She finally realises she is worthy of good things and sets out to obtain them for herself. To stand up to those that let her down and truly free herself from her past. With Cal’s love, strength and support, she can do anything.
This series was amazing to read and Cal & Macy are a fantastic couple. Macy is filled with self-doubt and loathing, but it’s not annoying to read. I can’t really explain it, but you could see she was a very strong woman and the moments of self-doubt weren’t in your face or on every other page. And Cal? He is a great guy. Off the top of my head I’d have to say he’s my favourite “Corporate” book boyfriend. He’s alpha without being arrogant or demeaning. He’s cocky but only because he can back it up. Macy hit the jackpot with him.
