Is this author Aurora Rose Reynolds?
It would figure with brainless heroine who can't seem to think while in proximity of a hero, repeating "fuckity, fuck, fuck", hero repeating "babe" all the time and not explaining his action and with story missing some important moments.
Well if it isn't her than she is certainly inspired by her.

After reading the last book from this author I knew she writes the kind of characters I love so when this one became available I jumped on in. And I did like the characters. I liked the story. It was well written and I enjoyed the suspense of trying to figure out what was going to happen.

I got nervous as we got closer to the end that it was all already wrapped up but I was already invested enough to be ok with just getting the happily ever after and hopefully a teaser for some of the other chara

I just can't with this. They see each other around for two years but don't talk. Then he barges into her interview, literally throws her over his shoulder, handcuffs her to the car and locks her in his office. Then he takes her to his house, changes her clothes and climbs in bed with her, all while she is sleeping. Wtf there is more but I'm not wasting any more time complaining ...more

Hope Jones has done it again, giving me a beautiful, swoony, unforgettable, unputdownable romance with this brand spanking new book. She created the PERFECT couple Huxley and Phoebe, an OTT alpha male that makes the perfect book boyfriend and one heroine you'll be crushing so very haaaaaard on right from when you first meet her.

Hope delivered all the best words in her debut book last year and just like then, I've got another fav

Surrendering to Him by Hope Jones is Huxley Carson and Phoebe Danvers's story.
Wow! What a truly fascinating and fabulous read! This is a sweet, funny, heartwarming, steamy and edge your seat story that will have you going back for re-reads time and time again. Phoebe is an investigative writer for her local paper while Huxley is ex FBI and now runs his own PI firm with his own team which they currently are working to bring down a cartel that is nasty news for anyone that crosses their path.

2 to 2.5 Stars

Light and easy story to read. It was okay but didn’t make me swoon or fall in love with either MC. While I generally liked Huxley and all his alpha yumminess, Phoebe, honestly, was more annoying than cute. I just feel like the characters could’ve been more fleshed out.

The scenes, dialogue, emotions, motivations, heck the story as a whole, stayed at a level that just skimmed the surface. Sigh, this had all the possibilities for more depth, more feels. Too bad it didn’t and as such
Surrendering To Him is my first book by Hope Jones, but I was intrigued by the synopsis. I think this story has lots of potential, but didn't fully deliver.

Phoebe is an investigative journalist who is working on a cartel case. She doesn't even know she is in danger until Huxley, a PI interrupts her interview and literally throws her over his shoulder to get her out of the situation. Huxley has been working the case himself and knows that Phoebe is in way too deep.

This was a quick and easy read, but nothing particularly special. The actual plot of the book wasn't written, it was summarised in a few short paragraphs of "tell, not show" so nothing really happened on the page.

The relationship between the two main characters felt forced - they'd never properly met before, but all of a sudden had real, deep feelings? I know that often this kind of book has an element of insta-love, but here it felt like there was no reason at all for the characters to like eac

This is the first book that I've read by this author and I didn't know what to expect. I really liked the story line and thought that it was written awesomely.

Phoebe is a writer for the paper, well she's an investigative journalist and while good at what she does, she does take a few risks with her safety to make sure that she gets that story. When Hux tells Phoebe to not run the story as her life is in very serious danger he goes to unthinkable measures to firstly convince her and to keep her s

Totally suspenseful! Phoebe is an investigative journalist in a small town where she dominates in her field by taking risks and them paying off big time. Until her last risk, which almost gets her killed, but thanks to Huxley the local PI, is able to intercept and save her. Totally confused, Phoebe doesn’t understand what’s going on and why she can’t write her story and basically do her job, and is also just as confused by Huxley’s caveman routine especially since they weren’t together. That all ...more

Brand new author and I loved this book. I could not put it down!

Phoebe is an investigative journalist for the local newspaper. She is investigating the local sheriff who is clearly crooked. She apparently gets herself into a little trouble as right as she is starting the interview the local P.I. Walks in and throws her over his shoulder and locks her in a room at his office.

Huxley & Phoebe's story is FANTASTIC!!! We get a really great alpha, a strong heroine, fun friends & family... Is this going to be a series? This needs to be a series, because Hux's sister, Phoebe's best friend, and all Hux's guys need stories. NEED! <3

I loved the pacing, the adventure, the LOVE in this story. While Phoebe tries to put up a fight, she & Huxley are together for the whole story & the drama surrounding them is well written, which equals my favorite kind of story!! Two thumbs WAY u

This is definitely a new author to watch. This second book by Hope Jones just reinforced my first impression of this amazing new author. Phoebe Danvers is a reporter. She has stuck her nose in the wrong business and now the bad guys are after her.

So I really liked this book and I'm not even sure what prompted me to read it. But I'm sure glad I did! This author's writing style reminds me (and I thought long and hard about this) of a mix between CP Smith and Bijou Hunter. If this is a debut release from this author, I can only imagine her work getting better and better from here. 4½ stars ...more

New to me author. I loved Hux and Phoebe. The story starts off with a bang and immediately grabs your attention. Very OTT H and many swoon worthy moments. Lots of action and suspense. I hope it’s the start of a new series with secondary characters. #netgalley

Also the hero have a big business he runs...

Idk if he possessive or not because there’s not many jealous scene from the hero... but he only shows a lot of protectiveness to the heroine.

All the elements were there for a good book, but it just felt like it was lacking. It was almost like it was a checklist plot, with the usual tropes ticked off, and then tacked together. I didn't feel like the main characters had any depth, and we didn't really know them. They also didn't know each other, and it was a bit weird the way they supposedly connected–especially since Phoebe was so against a relationship. That was another thing–her aversion to forming relationships seemed a really extr ...more

Lots of promise, but no delivery. I was never convinced that the h was worth the effort the H had to put into it. I will definitely check out future books by this author to see if she comes into her own.

I first heard about this book releasing because of who the publisher is! I received an email from them with the cover reveal and the cover looked amazing and made me want to know more! I waited for this book to release, grabbed a copy, and started reading it when I had a chance! After reading I can say that I enjoyed this book! The plot intrigued me right from the first chapter and it kept me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! The plot developed at a nice pace as well ...more

2.5 stars. If you love hyper alpha males and fast paced storylines with a lot of sexual buidup, this book is FOR you!

For me, it moved a little too fast. The book opens mid-scene with Hux already swooping in to save Phoebe. From there everything keeps speeding up. It was dizzying at times! Plus, the swiftness with which some of the plot events occurred were SO unrealistic (e.g. the house; overcoming her trauma) that it really took me out of the story. Much of their relationship actually reads lik

Surrendering to Him is an amazing story which kept me in my happy place cover to cover. Huxley Carson owns his own PI firm, after leaving the FBI, so he's all kinds of protective alpha. He & team are trying to take down a cartel, and you already know it's not an easy thing to do, not to mention, extremely dangerous. While on this case, he runs into investigative reporter Phoebe Danvers, who is in the crosshairs of that cartel, so she's in some pretty big danger herself. This is how they start ge ...more
Still in a Hux fog days later! This story is full of surprises, suspenseful, some scary events and filled with laughter to break the much needed tension with the things that unfold in the story-line and these characters. Phoebe is a strong hard headed person and will stop at nothing to get her story exposed. Guess that is why Huxley had to go all Alpha male to stop her interview and start trying to protect her! All I will say to avoid any spoilers. Huxley is an Alpha through and through and now ...more
