Review: Surrender Your Love by J.C. Reed

Surrender Your Love (Surrender Your Love #1) by J.C. Reed
Synopsis (Goodreads):
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 Thoughts: Holy crud! Now, I'm not implying that I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book or anything but WOW. Way to rip a girl's heart out and kick it around a few times. I'm all *flaily* now. *FLAILY* Because things happen and they were the type of brutal that makes me want book 2 now. I mean... *flails*

Okay. I'm talking myself down. I'm... okay.

Lest you think that this book isn't worth the emotional upheaval it's caused me... it is. It's a very satisfying read in the sense that a lot of things happen and a lot of the characters' secrets are laid bare. It's just emotional. Or maybe I'm just all emotional today. I DON'T KNOW. I do know that I thoroughly enjoyed everything, from Brooke and Jett's first date (or... bar hookup or whatever you want to call it) to the naughty Italian sexcapades to the emotionally wrenching final showdown. THINGS HAPPEN, GUYS! THINGS!

I do think that there are a lot of things going on that we don't know about. Jett isn't the most forthcoming guy and I think he has his reasons for doing what he did. I'm VERY excited for book 2 because I have a funny feeling I know what direction those things are going to lead to and it's going to blow things sky-high.

Nicely naughty with secrets and half-truths gumming up the path to happiness for the characters. As emotional as I am at the end of this, I'd totally do it all again.

*collapses*
