The first thing that attracted me to this book was the cover… Mmmm… look at that!! Then I read the book description and I knew I was going to enjoy this book. It may be full of lust but there is an underlying storyline that doesn’t completely surface until the very end. I giggled and laughed most of my way through this book, and couldn’t help but connect with both of the characters.
The whole book is told from Brooke’s POV and begins with her attending a business meeting at a “gentleman’s club” ;) to meet Mr Mayfield, but instead a rather arrogant and very attractive Mr Townsend meets her there. Mr Townsend tries his charm on Brooke but she is very quick to shut him down and basically leaves him in the club because she didn’t meet the person she was supposed to. Her life soon turns into a massive whirlwind as she wakes up in the morning with Mr Townsend in her bed, after going out with her girlfriend the night before. She then goes to work and is fired only to be hired as a personal assistant to Mr Mayfield. Her life can’t get any better!!
Jett, I liked from the very moment I met him!! He is cocky and so sure of himself that I couldn’t help but fall for him. He is a very smart person but tries to hide it behind the HOT guy that he is!! He has Brooke flabbergasted every time that they meet, or when she does speak to him it is usually to throw insults at him! The bickering between the characters always has me giggling as they are not sure how else they should get past the tension… Until Jett comes up with a plan.
As I said before, there is another reason why Brooke is hired as Mr Mayfield’s senior assistant and it is because of her background. She has worked for the past two years in reality and is pretty savvy when it comes to the business. Her main focus now is the Lucazaaone account, and how to figure out a way to purchase the land, as the current owner is reluctant to sell it. The property is worth millions but she really doesn’t see how to acquire the land without bringing in the law. This part of the story is easily overlooked, (due to all the swoony scenes) but turns out to be a major part of the book. How the way things turned out, I didn’t see coming and now I want to grab the next book to see what happens now!
I’m a girl who enjoys the romance throughout a book and Surrender Your Love has plenty of it!! I think that J.C. Reed has done an incredible job telling the story and I love her writing style. There are some secrets that are revealed throughout the book, and I felt it gave greater depth to characters, as they appear like normal people but they do have flaws too. The ending was left on a bit of a cliffhanger… But I think it was a fitting ending as to what Brooke found out in the end!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
