The Surrender Series by Priscilla West

Forbidden Surrender

The minute I saw Vincent Sorenson, I knew he was trouble. Billionaire. Bad boy. And dangerously sexy. He was everything I craved, and nothing I needed.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t just avoid him. The higher ups at my company decided they needed his business, and I was on the team to bring him in. Vincent Sorenson didn’t seem as interested in business as he was in me, but I knew that was a door better left unopened. If I got involved with him, it would only unearth the pain I spent years trying to bury.

I thought I had it under control, but I seriously underestimated Vincent’s seductive charm and silver-tongue. I would soon find out how delicious it would feel to let myself fall into this forbidden surrender.

Secret Surrender
When a trip to Vincent's exclusive private island revealed the real Vincent underneath the layers of suave nonchalance, I thought we were close to the start of something special.
Just when things were looking up for us, I would discover the one secret that Vincent never intended for me to find.

Beautiful Surrender
No one is who they seem to be.
I let Vincent into my heart because he seemed so different from everyone in my conservative world of wealth management. I thought we shared something special, but Vincent has been playing me this entire time.
As our relationship reaches a crisis point, a man from my past returns looking for a second chance. Is my ex really looking for redemption or is his goal something more sinister?

I try my best to hold it all together, until I discover a revelation that will change everything.

Review of all three

I LOVED them. They were fantastic! I did not want them to end! I loved the way Vincent was protective and firm but also fun and romantic. He took care of Kristen no matter what. Yes he could be seen as over protective but that was part of his charm. I thought this was a great and fun read. They were written well, the covers are catchy and the story line is fun. 

All three stories are very short and you will want to have all of them when you sit down to read but trust me, it will be worth it!

Hot Toy by Jennifer Crusie

Hot Toy by Jennifer Crusie

Mayhem ensues under the mistletoe as a determined shopper grabs the very last hot toy action figure off the shelf, only to find herself plunged into the middle of a real-life spy game and in the arms of a sexy secret agent...

Jennifer Cruisie is one of my favorite authors so I was excited to have the chance to review this book. The title was right on and perfect for the story. I found that this book followed a certain Christmas movie that I will not name here but it did spin off the movie a little. I was slightly disappointed and felt that this book was not as good as most of her others but all in all, I thought this was a great short story to read on a cold winter day!

The Wedding Audition Runaway Brides by Catherine Mann, Joanne Rock

The Wedding Audition Runaway Brides by Catherine Mann, Joanne Rock

The tabloids call her the Hit and Run Bride after reality show star Annamae Jessup walked out on Atlanta’s favorite baseball player on cable television. Eager to escape her notoriety, Annamae takes a road trip to find the grandmother she’s never met and winds up discovering a whole lot more than a band of back woods relatives. There’s no escape from reality TV, even in Beulah, Alabama, population 3000.

The last thing Wynn Rafferty needs in his new life is a spoiled television princess who can’t even know his real name. He’s in temporary witness protection as an apple farmer after his undercover work put his life in danger. He needs to lay low until the heat dies down from his last case— even if he sucks at growing apples as badly as he sucks at relationships. But Annamae turns his new town into a media circus, unwittingly threatening the lives of him, her and most of Beulah. Wynn is an expert at keeping the world at arm’s length, but when it comes to Annamae, the only way he can keep her safe is to keep her very, very close.

This was a great read! I loved how Annamae completely turned Wynn's life upside down. Poor guy didn't know what to do!!! While this book did not captivate me, I did find parts of it to be great. It was a fun, rainy day read!

Hit 'n Run by Lori Power

Hit 'n Run by Lori Power

 Determined to build a better life, Lorna has climbed the ladder to a successful public relations career one slippery rung at a time. But while on her way to an important meeting, a former lover crashes back into her life—literally—and she becomes embroiled in a police investigation that threatens everything she’s achieved.

Mitch Morgan doesn’t believe in coincidences.

Mitch has spent five years trying to forget Lorna, only to run into her on his way to an undercover sting operation. Old feelings quickly resurface and passion reignites, but as his investigation unfolds, evidence suggests the woman he’s falling for might have ties to the very criminals he’s after.

When Mitch tugs any thread of his investigation, it seems to lead back to Lorna. Caught between his desire for the strong, curious beauty and the growing suspicions of his superiors, he must choose between trusting his instincts and following regulations.

Lorna finds herself entangled in a web of betrayal.

When she learns the nature of the investigation—and her role as a suspected spy—Lorna goes to dangerous lengths to clear her name and prove to everyone, including herself, she’s worthy of the handsome, tenacious Mitch. With danger around every corner, Lorna is on the run for her life, but refuses to run from the past any longer.

She can find the evidence she needs, but at what cost?

Mitch now knows her secrets and must find her first and convince her she—and their love—are worth fighting for, before it’s too late.

My thoughts......

I have found a new author that I love! Lori Power of course! This book is amazing! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way these two characters stumble across each other after so many years! The tension and suspense kept me intrigued from start to finish! The story line is fabulous and the title is perfect! I can not wait to read the next one!!!
