Surrender Your Love (Surrender Your Love #1) by J.C. Reed Book Review

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

5 of 5 Jett and Brooke

First I want to say that I am so dam pissed at myself for not reading this book sooner. Holy Jett this book was incredible. I could not put it down and when my eyes were closing I would force them open so I could keep reading. I eventually had to put it down but I picked it back up this morning and I have to say that I absolutely love J.C. and I need need book like I need air to breathe. I mean who would not love a strong alpha male and a strong alpha female as characters but what makes this book and did it for me was the flow of the book and the development of characters. I have been reading a lot of NA books and I loved most of them I found that some did not have the flow like I needed.

Choppy reading is for the birds dude I want a book where I can get into it and I can picture the characters and even relate to them with a song and by the way Rhianna's Stay is Jett and Brooke's song.

The words: All along it was a fever

A cold sweat hot-headed believer

I threw my hands in the air, said, "Show me something,"

He said, "If you dare come a little closer."

Round and around and around and around we go

Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it.

Something in the way you move

Makes me feel like I can't live without you.

It takes me all the way.

I want you to stay

It's not much of a life you're living

It's not just something you take – it's given

Ooh the reason I hold on

Ooh cause I need this hole gone

Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving

Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving

This song sums up so much for these two who happened to meet and fall in love but circumstances be what they are come in between them and choices and decisions are made and once they are made there is no turning back. For Jett he is smart, gorgeous and gets what ever he wants. He wants a property but it seems that the owner does not want to sell. The owner rather save the property and pass it on to his family. Jett is determined to get that property at any cost but what he wasn't expecting was falling in love with the heir to that property. For Brooke she has had lot's of tragedy in her life and she keeps her heart and life closed off to everyone so she does not get hurt. Her dream job is to be a top Realtor and work for the top firm but she gets sidetracked by another company who has offered her a job. As she starts her new job she finds out she will be going to Italy to seal a deal that the company she works for is trying to broker. 

Then Brooke comes home and she finds out that a law firm has been searching for he rand they tell her she has inherited some property but when she realizes which one it is it will change Brooke and Jetts relationship and Brooke will get stronger than she has ever been and does something she never thought she would do but it is for the best interest of both parties. This book has it's highs and lows and keeps you on your toes and the ending from Jetts perspective I just dam near died! I said what a freaking fool what was he thinking and what the hell is up with this estate that everyone wants. Man I have so many questions June can't come fast enough because I am dying to read the second book.
Quotes from Surrender Your Love

“I had never seen eyes like his. Dark green. Smoldering. Ready to undress a woman with a single glance.” 

“Tragedy may hit all of us in one way or another, but fate's not our enemy, Brooke. We are. By locking yourself away from the world, you choose your own mistakes and destroy any chance of ever finding happiness. You cannot control life, but you can chose who you are and what you make of it.”

“Why do you want me?" I asked, suppressing the trembling of my voice. "I’m strange, definitely not perfect, and fucked up. Actually, a lot of the latter.”
“Perfect is boring and overrated.” He smiled that lopsided grin of his that made my lower abdomen twist and curl with delicious desire. “I’m looking for sexy, fun, kind, and honest. And you tick all the right boxes, Brooke.” 

“Falling in love often happens at the wrong time, in the wrong place, with the wrong person.” 

“Maybe someday, I'd find someone who'd prove he really loved me. Someone who'd hold me rather than let me fall. Someone who'd never lie to me.”

“To me, love was a drug. Jett was my drug.”

“This isn’t working, Brooke. Don’t get me wrong, the sex is amazing. But it’s turning into something else, and I need to know where I’m standing. I need to know whether we’ll ever be together.”
