“What gives you a thrill Kristen?”

I knew that giving in to Vincent Sorenson was a risk, but it was one I was willing to take. I had hidden my heart for so long and for the first time in a long time, Vincent was close to breaking down the walls.

When a trip to Vincent’s exclusive private island reveals the real Vincent underneath the layers of suave nonchalance, I thought we

In Secret Surrender Vincent takes Kristen on a gorgeous date to his exclusive private island. They learn more about each other and spend some much needed quality time together.

Will it be love in paradise?
Are there people who could come between them and destroy their world?
Does Kristen fit into his world?

"He would always want more."

Vincent is smooth, he knows exactly what to say and do. I didn't see any evidence of him being a playboy but I really enjoyed his billionaire, sexy character, non t
2 Mischievous stars!

So in this book Vincent and Kristen relationship continues in secret but as the time passes and things between them get more serious, obstacles will appear in their way making Kristen re-thing if all of that (especially being fired in case of getting caught!).
Not only that but Vincent starts to behave strangely and Kristen starts to thing that he may not be as honest as he seemed.

Well,this book was hot.I seriously love Vincent and I love how much he cares about Kristen and her safety.On the other hand,I was a bit irritated that Kristen didn’t think that Marty is a real threat.I mean,she’s been having nightmares about him and she has basically left everything to run from him and now she’s super chill when she finds out that he’s been looking for her and she gets angry at Vincent for telling her to take care of herself.This girl is crazy.I understand the jealousy when it c ...more

This is the second book in the three part series Surrender. The focus is whether these two characters can develop a relationship. They have a few hurdles to overcome.

She is his requested contact at the firm managing his wealth...which if their dating becomes public knowledge, it could jeopardize her credibility in landing the account. Although it is not against company policy, she does have real concerns and that plays a part in how the both of them interact. T

I have to say not much happened in this book besides sex. Vincent and Kristen are having lots of sex in the beginning stages of their relationship, but the also get to know each other a bit more. Vincent is a busy man and is constantly traveling in order to make his business successful. One trip in particular, they agree to Skype with each other and oh how quickly that went from flirting to something much hotter!

Vincent then takes Kristen to his private island. Yes, that's right,

This is the second book in the series "Surrender" and we continue the romance between Kristen and Vincent.

There were a few scenes in this book that had my panties getting moist - that infamous sex scene in front of the computer was the BEST!!

I am really enjoying these installments, love seeing how Vincent and Kristen work on their relationship, work on building trust as well as overcoming insecurities and obstacles that come with a new relationship- especially with Vincent being so busy all the time.

THE SEX IS HOT, however I could do with less talking on their parts and more doing! Still it was HOT!

In Secret Surrender we find Vincent and Kristen still exploring their relationship and fully enjoying every inch of each other. Kristen’s guard continues to lower and Vincent continues to say and do all the right things.

As we watch Vincent and Kristen get to know each other a little bit better different things begin to surface that has Kristen second guessing herself. Her feelings for Vincent are growing and she certainly cannot deny the sexual chemistry they have between them but doe
As Vincent and Kristen’s relationship continues, both in business and behind closed doors, past are beginning to be revealed and insecurities are beginning to be exposed.

So this is the part of the series where things get ramped up a bit and some key plot points begin to take shape. The only problem is as that is happening, Kristen becomes a bit too insecure and immature.

Again, original read was entertaining but the flavor was tainted by the third book and my reactions to the story that we end u

Thank you NetGalley for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review!

Another short review for this book. I find this an okay read. It's not as entertaining as the first one and this one is a meh to me. I didn't feel the chemistry between these two and hoping for more twist but...meh. It ended up with a cliffhanger... pfft.

I'm on the almost-good-part. Oh well.

This series is becoming better and better!

In the first book I thought it was a bit quick, that I needed more... but now I can understand why Mrs. West is doing the division of the serie like this.

In the first one you meet Kristen and Vincent, and you can understand a little bit of their story.

In this one, things get hotter, the story gets a new perspective... and the end, lets you needing the next book ASAP.

First Thoughts

Wow, wow, wow! These books were smokin' hot! I couldn't get enough! I read all three books back to back until late last night. When my boss asked me why I looked so tired today, I giggled and thought of Vincent Sorenson.

What I Enjoyed

Vincent obviously cares for Kristen. It's not just sex, guys. He really cares about her! I laughed so hard whenever Kristen passed her "new neighbors" in the hall. Unbeknownst to he

Picking up right where book 1 left off, 'Secret Surrender' continues to follow the growing relationship between Kristen and Vincent. This book was more heartfelt and emotional than the first, as the two begin to experience some growing pains and encounter their first difficulties as a couple. With Vincent's ex now entering the fray, Kristen's insecurities rise to the surface. Her own

Actual Rating: 3.5 stars.

I thought this book was better than the first installment though I still had some issues with it.

Character development was stronger in this book, mainly because it centers on Vincent and Kristen's romance. I enjoyed the world-building as Kristen was shown a taste of what it's like to date a wealthy, successful, man.

The romance is smokin' hot, just as I like it!

The main issues I had again were underdevelopment of the plot. Kurt and Bernie were so obvious it was almost la

3.75 stars!

This book picked up where the first book left off. Kristen and Vincent's relationship is now progressing very rapidly despite her reservations. Vincent is a master of seduction and is not above using his charm and money to get what he wants.

For Kristen, it's becoming more and more clear that her carefully constructed defenses are no match for Vincent's charm. Just when everything is falling into place, secrets from Vincent's past is revealed that will test their relationship.

In Secret Surrender, we pick up pretty much were book one left off, with these two trying to have a relationship while Kristen is settling in to her new position asan asset manager and Vincent is traveling th world introducing his newest surf board in the company line, Skype and texts become these two's life line , in more ways then one, I will,never think of Skype the same way again!

I'm having a difficult time rating this book. If you're looking for a steamy romance, then this is for you. If you are looking for a huge addition to this series, then turn away. This installment does very little for the story line. Yes, the characters become a bit closer--you can tell because they're having sex for the majority of the book--and they have a few struggles along the way. An ex-girlfriend of Vincent's shows u

I don't know how to really write a review for this book. I feel like it could have been a good story in the beginning but it slowly just wasn't for me. Mainly because of Kristen.

I've never been more irritated with a character ever. In the beginning she was all, "I can't sleep with you because of my job." but Vincent was more persistant than she thought he would be and she finally gave in. it thought the story was really going to pick up then, but instead she turned into a jealous, whiney, and i

This book felt like a filler, I mean the writing was superb, as with the last book but there wasnt too much storyline?

The sex was hot, but the storyline lacking........

After reading the blurb- I thought Vincent was going to have some deep dark secret that Kristen would unlock- but all she discovered was he used to have a girlfriend??

Clearly the riding COCK is some sort of surfboard........

If she ends up pregnant in the last book I'll be peeved off- as a good story has now become predict

Priscilla West's books are so easy to read.

This is the second book in the series and is a continuation of Kristen and Vincent's story. And what a great instalment it was.

After the mentioning of Marty in the first book, I was expecting and hoping that there would be some drama involving him in this one. Throughout the whole story I was filled with suspense, waiting for him to get involved. I had to wait till the last page...which I would have been annoyed at if not for t

Secret Surrender was an okay read but I didn't love it. I didn't remember what happened in the previous book but it wasn't bothering me much. The sex scenes between Vincent and Kristen were hot. The turn of events was predictable though, and I'm a little upset because of Ariel and 'Vinny'. I don't usually like that kind of plot because I can feel a little jealous for the heroine. There are also hints of a future (view spoiler), and I'm not sure if that's something I wan ...more

The story continues right where Forbidden Surrender left of.

Kristen and Vincent's relationship is still being kept secret because of their bussiness cooperation. While it's not forbidden, Kristen doesn't think it'd be right to tell the world and mostly her firm that they are dating.

Not that they spent much time together anyway, with Vincent being the CEO, he has to travel a lot. When he finally has the time for her, he takes her to his private island where she meets his stunning ex

ARC Generously provided by publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was my least favorite book in this trilogy. Kristen decides to go forward with the relationship with Vincent. He wisks her off to his private island for a weekend date and they have great time. Vincent is showing all the right signs and saying the right things. However when a woman from his past runs into them Kristen freaks. She is sure he still loves her or will cheat on her

This is continuing the story with Vincent and Kristin!! It was a quick great read that continued their story.

Vincent just became better and better in this book. Even though he is a billionaire, he was very down to earth. Yes, he has extravagant things. Yes, he is over protective. Yes, he is semi alpha. Yes, he is hot and has a big penis. Yes, he has hot sex. :)

Kristin, on the other hand, started to slightly get on my nerves in this book. :( I am hoping it gets better in the next book. At least

This one was good overall.

The romance was greatly written and brought through so well. I like the characters, but do I see growth?? Uhh, somewhat. Vincent has grown as a character in the relationship in the story. Kristen has grown, but as an annoying, and nagging little girl.

I know that's kind of harsh. But when you start reading this series, you can see what I mean. I understand this is a New Adult novel, but Kristen is not a college student here, I feel like she needs to grow up a bit; her c
