Surrender Your Love by J.C. Reed

This one is not a YA book, if you couldn't tell from the cover. Just an FYI before you decide to read it!

Goodreads Summary:

Meeting Jett was like lightning. Dangerous. Better left untouched. And better forgotten. But lightning always strikes twice.

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, doesn’t do relationships. When she’s sent to a remote estate to finalize a real estate deal, she discovers her new boss is no other than the guy she left naked in bed.

Sexy, dangerously handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield attracts trouble, and women, like a lightning rod. But the night he meets Brooke he gets more than he bargained for. The green-eyed millionaire playboy isn’t used to taking no for an answer, and he isn’t about to start now.

When he proposes two months of no strings sex, Brooke is intrigued and accepts his proposal. Little does she know Jett’s determined to claim the one woman he can’t have, pulling her deeper into his dangerous world.

A man who doesn't take 'no' for an answer.
A woman afraid to surrender to love.
Two lives that are about to cross...and secrets laid bare.

My Review:
I was contacted to review this book by the author. And boy am I glad she reached out. I really enjoyed Surrender Your Love. The book kept me on the edge of my seat and honestly I didn't see the end coming. Brooke and Jett are two people who both had rough pasts. Their family lives were not ideal when they were growing up. Because of that they both have a few issues as adults. Brooke is kind of working at at dead end job but, she hasn't found anything better yet. Jett is a rich hot guy with a very successful business. It's this business that brings them together. 

Brooke ends up getting recruited for the job of a lifetime. When the mysterious new boss turns out to be none other then the guy who was in her bed a day ago things are uphill from there! Brook and Jett spend a wonderful 2 weeks in Italy looking at a property that Jett needs to purchase. They do get to know each other quite fast. They realize they have more in common then they thought. Can a relationship possibly last with Brooke's boss? Can she get over her insecurities about commitment?? Brooke feels like Jett is keeping something from her...what could it be?

Jett is your typical hot guy whose dripping with cash. He gets what he wants when he wants it. This is kind of new for Brooke but, she goes with it. Jett is a powerful man who has to buy the property in Italy at any cost. This property does have a bit of a past to it. Lets just say that little something isn't an ideal selling point. But, none the less Jett needs it. I am hoping to figure out why in the next book! About half way through I felt like Jett was kind of pining for Brooke. Which is a nice change from the girl falling head over heals for someone who doesn't want her and blah blah blah. I loved his little point of view at the end. It was a great way to wrap up the book and I hope we get some more from his perspective. 

I am so glad I was offered a review copy of Surrender Your Love. It was a great and quick read. I am looking forward to the next installment!
