Madison Warner Fairbanks
Deadly Surrender by Katie Reus

Book 5 of the Serafina Casino Sin City series. Romantic suspense. Can be read as a stand-alone.
I loved that this couple were friends and already crushing on each other. One of my favorite troupes. That he wasn’t giving up and was sensitive enough to give her space to come to terms with their new relationship was very intuitive.

Without spoilers, this author does follow a pretty consistent pattern. I always want to yell at the couple that think everything is solved
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Logan is a good mix of a flirty, alpha male who also focuses 100% of his attention on the heroine. While he is described as a big flirt, you see him only flirting with the heroine and not other woman in this book. That's pretty important for me. I like when the hero only sees the heroine.

He has a playboy reputation that followed after him long after he stopped, that causes him a bit of trouble getting Grace to give him a chance. Part of that is Grace's past experience with her ex-fiance. She is

Yummy brother Logan's turn to find his HEA. Grace has been in his group of friends for a while, but he's finally ready to make a move. Then we have a bad guy gunning for him or is it her. Lots of running around and hiding in beds.

I wouldn't mind one more book in this series with Detective Hurley. He sounds really yummy.

3.5 - "Every day with you is special…" Stars!

We return to the The Seraphina: Sin City series with Logan and Grace’s story, both single and lusting after the other. But one is unwilling to risk their friendship while the other is not 100% sure how to move things to the next level.

Ultimately, an unknown enemy pushes Logan into protective alpha mode, and Grace quickly realises that he wants a lot more than friendship too. He now has the job of keeping her safe, whilst trying to convince her he is

I really loved this book. It was so refreshing to have a different take on a friends to lovers romance. I loved that the book started out with both of them crazy about each other but neither had any clue. Their chemistry was adorable and I just loved them as a couple. The one thing I will say is that Most of the story line revolves around the main characters Grace and Logan running from this treat, I was slightly disappointed by the reveal, I wish there had been more detail. But I truly enjoyed ...more

I absolutely LOVED everything about this. Friends-to-lovers can be a hard sale for me unless it’s done just right and this one was perfect in every way!

After Logan rescues Grace from an uncomfortable situation, they end up taking their friendship to a different level. But just for the night. They are friends and that’s how it will stay. Logan’s got a reputation as a player and Grace’s heart can’t take a chance of being broken again. But when a random shooting appears to be more than just random,

Logan adores his woman's assets, "by now Grace was already sitting up in bed, tucking the sheet neatly around her perfect breasts. “You should never cover those up,” he murmured as he grabbed a pair of sneakers from the floor." I liked this book, I liked Logan.

Grace Foster found herself needing a new start after she got her heart broken by her ex-fiancé, Kevin who left her st the altar, one year ago. She headed to Las Vegas, where she had the support of her friend, Taylor ( DANGEROUS SURRENDER ) and many others which included Logan. The latter was sexy as sin but she wasn't in the mood to get her heart destroyed a second time. She was only willing to offer him her friendship, nothing more.

DEADLY SURRENDER Book 5 in The Serafina Sin City Series By Katie Reus can be seen as a standalone book in this well loved series. This is Logan MacNeil and Grace Foster's story.
What's great about them is they are already friends and have secret crushes on one another. Which is my favorite trope - friends to lovers. And boy, do Grace and Logan have a great friendship but Grace doesn't want to risk losing her friendship with Logan if he doesn't feel the same about her.

Grace thought she had her future planned out until she got dumped by her fiancé in the most humiliating and painful way possible. She has now relocated to Vegas and surrounded herself with a great group of friends which includes Logan.

Logan is the perfect combination of strength and sexy. He acknowledges that he a reputation with the ladies, but it is more a case of not finding the right one until he met Grace. He knows that she is still healing, and he is willing to wait patiently until she rea

Grace came to Las Vegas after her fiancée left at the altar. She wanted to start fresh and leave the past behind. Here she has friends who will support her. This is just what Grace needs! Logan MacNeil is glad to have her here but he wants to be more than her buddy. He hopes that he can have a serious relationship but I don't think either imagined that their time together would be spent trying to stay alive. Can they escape this vengeful killer?

I have read all the stories in the Sin City series and we finally are gifted with Logan and Grace's story. Yay! Logan, twin brother to Roman (remember Roman, Lol), finally after being friends with Grace, decides that he is going to let her know how he feels. Well, it sort of backfired, in a way. Suffice it to say, after believing they were moving forward, they went back a step. All I can say is that Grace, though protecting her heart, acted a bit foolish. I mean you have the hots for the guy,go ...more

DEADLY SURRENDER (The Serafina Sin City Book 5) By Katie Reus
I loved this visit back to the Serafina in Las Vegas. Deadly Surrender is the 5th book in this well written series. This friends to lovers romance is very addictive. Logan is gorgeous, swoon worthy, has a reputation for being a player, and is a member of Wyatt Christianson’s security team. Grace is a school guidance counselor who is building herself back after being left at the alter from her ex-fiance.

I had listened to the audios of this series a while back and was thrilled to hear the author had decided to give us another story in the series.
This time the story belongs to Logan MacNeil and Grace Foster. If you are familiar with the series, Logan is Roman’s twin, whose story is told in Dangerous Surrender.

Safe, h was engaged, H had a playboy past that was from a long time ago, neither with others since meeting. Ok, if I'm going to be honest he was not the perfect guy. If he was perfect he wouldn't have gone from friends, to sleeping together. He even questioned himself whether or not she had too much to drink. He knew everyone thought he was a major player. He should have actually communicated with her, told her his feelings asked her out. But then there would be no conflict but it also made him ...more

Deadly Surrender is a story of contrasts. Good vs evil and shades of gray. This is a bodyguard tale with a twist and thoroughly enjoyable. Everybody knows a guy like Logan. Gorgeous, always friendly, flirty and smiling but nobody takes him seriously. But he is dead set serious about making Grace his own. I really enjoyed this bodyguard to lovers story because who can resist Logan determined. I liked that he isn’t all powerful but he does his very best.

I absolutely loved this book. I have been a fan of Katie Reus for years and this book shows why. Logan works security for Wyatt Christianson. Grace has moved to Las Vegas for a fresh start. When an enemy is out to get Logan, it puts not only him but Grace in danger as well. This is part of the Serafina Sin City series. I had so much fun catching up with some of the characters and learning Logan and Grace's story. Katie Reus really knows how to craft a good book.

Sooo long! I have been waiting for Logan forever. It was so worth the wait. Logan is so swoony and you can tell right away how much he cares for Grace. Action and suspense along with a long awaited union of souls.

Logan is basically perfect, and Grace was pretty awesome too. I just loved the story, which kept me guessing, but was romantic and sexy at the same time. Can’t wait to read more of the series now!

This is book 5 in the Serafina series and while this could be read as a stand alone, I recommend that you read the previous books before reading this one so that you can meet these characters and understand all the different relationships. In this one we finally get Logan and Grace's story! Grace came to Vegas to have a fresh start after the way her ex left her. And when making a new group of friend's, she meet's Logan.

Happy book birthday! There are so many amazing new releases today! I’m kind of new to the whole romance genre, so I was really excited to check out romance suspense! I mean it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like but I absolutely enjoyed it! I’m also not typically a huge friends to lovers trope lover, but I’ve read two lately and now I’m thinking that maybe I need to reconsider how I feel about that.

Grace has been burnt by love in the past, not only after being jilted at the altar but even growing up her mother was not the most loving. She struggles to accept that someone might actually want her. That hasn't stopped her from being attracted to Logan. He has a reputation as a bit of a player, (although to be honest, although Grace mentions it, there is no other evidence of that being the case in this book. This is the first in the series that I have read, so perhaps he has been more of a pla ...more

Deadly Surrender is the fifth book in Katie Reus’s The Serafina: Sin City series. It IS a standalone book, though I always recommend a series for a richer reading experience. I’m a long-time fan of Ms. Reus, and I have never read a book of hers that I’ve yet to hate…or even dislike a little bit. And I can still say that after reading this book.

Grace and Logan have a great friendship. And despite her attraction to Logan, Grace doesn’t want to risk losing that friendship. But when trouble comes, s
