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

Well, I’m definitely more religious now.

Seeing as how I kept praying for this one to get better.

'My mouth dropped and I almost toppled off my chair. Holy cow. Being rude was all it took to land a job with a big firm? And that’s when I remembered that I had been doing more than talking. All heat drained from my cheeks. I had banged Mystery Guy, who in turn persuaded his boss to hire me. I could only imagine his arguments.'

Brooke is a realtor in NYC. She mostly enjoys her job, and lives with her best friend, Sylvie. Brooke has a guy in the picture, but she doesn’t do relationships. She has been hurt too much in her past to really give anyone a chance.
“I don't do relationships because I don't want to love and lose myself.”

I REALLY enjoyed this one. I feel it’s only fair to warn you that there’s a doozy of a cliffhanger that will leave you desperate for the next book. On first impressions this story appeared to be following a well worn path – rich CEO hires a young assistant and then convinces her to sign a no-strings, non-disclosure sex contract but I had a niggling feeling the whole time I was reading it that some things just

FUCK ME. The cover of this book is smokin' HOT And trust me... I always judge a book by its cover and it has 99% of the times, never failed me. ;)

This book was like a passionate-erotica mystery. I loved each and every minute of it.

A paint by numbers New Adult book that lifts the Fifty Shades formula but fails miserably at anything resembling believable characters, motivation or emotion.

And what is UP with authors trying to pretend their characters are a certain nationality they know nothing about?! Raine Miller tried to pretend the hero of her book was British when it was blatantly obvious Ms. Miller has never set foot in Blighty (mini malls in Central London. I'm still snerking.)

Dear Jett,


I knew from the first moment I met you that you'd be trouble.




You just had to conjure up that contract, didn't you? Going for something easier and simpler never crossed your mind now did it?




I mean if the attraction you felt for Brooke was so off the charts, you could, oh I don't know, GO OUT WITH HER AND NOT HIRE HER???
Of course that's stupid. So you went down that good old path: arrangement aiming at mutual sexual satisfaction, exclusiveness over other party under the preten

I always find it a little difficult to review the first book in a series... I feel like I'm writing a review half way through a story, which, I suppose I am.

This book was good. It didn't move me, but I did enjoy it. I wasn't compelled to read it every waking second, forgoing sleep, food and showers just to keep turning the pages. But it was good. But here are a few of my thoughts, anyway, for what they're worth...

For being the Author's first book, this book kept me wanting more. I mean more. I could read about these characters for days. I didn't want the story to end.

It was lust at first sight.

Brooke was very likable for me. She was a strong heroine with a troubled past that she keeps locked up at bay. She seems to keep her emotions in check. Very guarded.

Jett, is a very determined guy. He's up for any challenge, he will get what he wants regardless what stands in his way. He is

Well, I did it..I actually finished this book! It took me awhile, and I am sad to say that I was disappointed in most of it; but I felt I gave it a fair chance. I do feel it important to mention that the actually writing wasn't the issue for me. I just found the story to be very slow moving, and I had trouble with connecting to the characters.

BAM! Right Between the Eyes

When I was 12, I got hit between the eyes by a baseball while playing catch. I will never forget that feeling of being disoriented and out of breath. This is how I felt about the ending of this book. Surrender Your Love by new author, J.C. Reed, left me breathless.

It starts as a nice contemporary romance, a plot somewhat familiar made popular by Sylvia Day, E.L. James, Anne Calhoun and Ella Frank, a devastatingly handsome, alpha millionaire falls for an attractive and

Hmmmm well I inhaled this one ! Not really sure about this book. I did not connect and I felt it was a predictable hot little read. I like my books with a little more substance and although I want to know what's going to happen ...... I'm positive book 2 of this series will go into my book 2 vortex of lost reads ! I'm ashamed. I'm sorry !

Honestly, I did not expect much of this book. This was just a filler between the buddy reads. By the time I finished I was floored and found myself a new book boyfriend, Jett, even with THAT ending.. I am hooked and itching for the 2nd book.

Oh Jett, you are a sexy dude with those eyes and tattoos - I am a sucker for a tatted bad boy. BUT HOW COULD YOU??!!! REALLY! Can't wait to find out the heart of your pain and secrets and WHY YOU DID IT!!!.

Brooke, your story is heartbreaking. I liked Brooke character because she has a backbone. She is no shrinking violet. What she says and does in the final scene is classy. You go girl.

Surrender Your Love is J.C. Reed’s debut novel and I found it much more than what it initially appeared to be. While the book started a little slow for me the second half added the necessary ingredients to keep me invested. Jett Townsend is a devilishly gorgeous alpha and CEO of one of the most successful Real Estate firms in the country. He’s surrounded by a certain amount of secrecy and is tight lipped about his past. Understanding this concealment may be a necessary part of the story, but it ...more

I got what the author was trying to do here... but I think it could have been executed a lot better. The plot was all over the place for the first half of the book or so. I felt like some of the milestones in the relationship felt forced and the times that they decided to "bare their souls" did not really fit because of that. Brooke was annoyingly daft at times. Which often made her annoyingly predictable as well. She also appeared to be really judgmental of those around her like her best friend ...more

Surrender Your Love by J.C. Reed really surprised me, especially at the end leaving me wanting, no more like NEEDING the next book in the series ASAP.

The book starts off with young 20-something Brooke Stewart, a college graduate working in Real Estate. Brooke has a fun best friend/roommate, a job she doesn’t love but doesn’t hate, a “boyfriend”, and is trying to make it big in New York City. One night Brooke is suppose to meet the boss of anothe

Holy Mother of Pearls what a cliffhanger!

It started out slightly reminiscent of Fifty Shades of Grey. You know, the billionaire, the contract, the girl next door… and just like FSoG, I was sucked into the story. Yes, I’m still a sucker for these unlikely romances :) But then I got deeper into the story and realized that that’s where the comparison to FSoG ended.

Brooke is attracted to Jett (who wouldn’t be?!) but she’s just out of a relationship, h
