Publisher's 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 none 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 that Jett is determined to claim the one woman he can't have.

All I can say is I never expected that ending!!

I REALLY enjoyed this one. I feel it’s only fair to warn you that there’s a bulldozer of a cliffhanger that will leave you desperate for the next book. On first impressions this story appeared to be following the same overdone path.... rich CEO hires a young assistant and then convinces her to sign a no-strings, non-disclosure sex contract but I had a strange feeling the whole time I was listening that some things just we're not adding up and boy oh boy was I right!!! The last few chapters shocked me and I found that nothing is as it seems in this book. The writing style was engaging and sucked me in from the start. I absolutely didn’t want to put this book down once I had started it. I very much liked Brooke as our heroine – she’s really quite naive, trying to make her way in New York, sharing a run down apartment with her best friend Sylvie, she’s working well below her pay grade and has almost given up on finding her dream job. Until Jett, the devilishly handsome and seriously rich CEO, takes an instant shine to our hapless heroine, coerces her into a position whereby she must accept his job offer and straight away, he whisks her off to the shores of Lake Como in Italy where he attempts to seal a multi-millionaire real estate deal with Brooke’s help. Jett is gorgeous, sexy, pretty intense and he’s very into Brooke. He’s got some mysterious ink and a dark past. He’s a hard working CEO heading up his family’s company and is now completely fixated on Brooke. He wants her with a passion that cannot be denied and is pretty secure in his belief that he can get her to sign his sex contract. Brooke can see that he’s dangerous to know but she just can’t resist that magnetic attraction she feels every time he is near. It was intriguing to watch the blossoming relationship between Jett & Brooke grow as they spent more time together in Italy. When they finally do come back from their two week trip that's when things really start to happen... there's a mystery with a great big WTF moment. I still never did see it coming! I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.

AN ENJOYABLE LUST FILLED CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

Brooke's life is about to change when a business meeting goes bad as the wrong guy shows up..... he's beyond handsome, sexy and drool-worthy but he's also an arrogant Playboy so she gives him the brush off. After a wild night of drinking she wakes and gets a shock when the man in her bed was the hot arrogant guy but the shocks don't end there as there's plenty more to come.

Jett (aka arrogant guy) wanted Brooke from the start and he's rich enough to pull strings to get her exactly where he wants her - underneath him. But first the ground rules have to be explained and contracts have to be signed and he uses his good looks, charisma, charm and the strong sexual attraction they have for each other to make things happen exactly according to his plans. However, Brooke's no push-over and a bitter past has made her into a successful, smart and snarky woman who's also kind, compassionate and loyal which is refreshing for Jett who's hiding a dark past and secrets which makes him emotionally blow both hot and cold. As their secret affair turns into a love affair there's humor, romance, sex and companionship but secrets, a life changing shock, betrayal and some bitter truths has devastating heartbreaking consequences between them which leaves a HOLY SH*T of a cliffhanger ending.

Worth a credit? It lost a star for me because of Brooke's continual use, every time she sees Jett, of stunning, beautiful, handsome, mesmerising, sexy, gorgeous, perfect, perfect bone structure and his amazing voice, eyes, body, smell and hair which constantly affected her panties in some way!! okay okay I got the fact that he was lickable eye candy. But despite this, YES it was a very enjoyable and addictive listen that has me fumbling to download book 2 and pre-ordering book 3.

Nice little escape

If you could sum up Surrender Your Love in three words, what would they be?

Escapism. Fluff. Relax.

What about Romy Nordlinger’s performance did you like?

Ms. Nordlinger's expressive voice and ability to give a distinct identity to each character make the book much more enjoyable than if I had just been reading it. In fact, I don't normally read romance novels and may have not finished it if it weren't for the fact that it was more like a performance.

Any additional comments?

Writing just ok but salvaged by the narrator.

I'd totally recommend it

Good plot and characters. I found myself drawn in by it. Don't know why a couple of people are so uptight about this narrator. I liked her style. The book has a great sense of fun and she had that down. I'll buy the next one for sure.

Enjoyed!

Would you listen to Surrender Your Love again? Why?

There's alot of locations- made me want to go to italy. I listened to this whole book on a long road trip up and back and I was very entertained - certain things in the story didn' t make sense like how does she really get all this great stuff like in a fairy tale , but then I got into it and there was alot more than was going on too so I'm going to check out the next one.

What does Romy Nordlinger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

i liked romy as the narrater because it was very believable, she had alot of expression and i felt like she was really there not just reading.

Kept me entertained

I liked the best friend relationship – reminds me of me and my bff.

I hadn’t heard this narrator before but she was pretty good. Particularly with finding the humor cause when all's said and done, even though it’s a serious book, it’s certainly fun.

Some of it’s kinda silly, but overall fun and I want to hear more.

A good listen and narration

Any additional comments?

As far as romance books go, I liked that this one. It has a lot of humor, and strong women friends, exciting and intriguing locations. Sometimes it was slow and I didn't know where it was going, but for the most part I just wanted to know. I'm looking forward to the next one. I liked Romy Nordlinger a lot, I've heard her before and she always goes there.

Loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Surrender Your Love to be better than the print version?

Yes, I could really feel all the action this way.

Which character – as performed by Romy Nordlinger – was your favorite?

Jed is really good. You want to dislike him but he's such a good guy deep down. I really liked romys narration her characters were very real. I enjoyed and am already listening to the next.

Bad narrator

What would have made Surrender Your Love better?

A different narrator needed. Woman sounds like a 50 year old chain smoker and her attempts at the male leads voice was too off putting to take seriously.

If you’ve listened to books by J. C. Reed before, how does this one compare?

It seems to be what I expected but couldn't enjoy because of narration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her voice. Sounds very old. Bad at trying to do other characters as well as her own

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Surrender Your Love?

Don't have an answer for this, I was too distracted to concentrate by trying not to be irritated by narrator.

Ugghhh worst narration

What would have made Surrender Your Love better?

A different narrator-someone who doesn't sound like a 45 year old pack a day smoker.

What was most disappointing about J. C. Reed’s story?

Only made it 20 mins in before the narrator was to unbearable

How did the narrator detract from the book?

There are no words to describe it...

Any additional comments?

No no no just no
