“What gives you a thrill Kristen?”

The minute I saw Vincent Sorenson, I knew he was trouble. Billionaire. Bad boy. And dangerously sexy. He was everything I craved, and nothing I needed.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t just avoid him. The higher ups at my company decided they needed his business, and I was on the team to bring him in. Vincent Sorenson didn't seem as interested in business as he was in me, but I knew that was a door better left unopened. If I got involved with him, it would only unearth the pain I spent years trying to bury.

I thought I had it under control, but I seriously underestimated Vincent’s seductive charm and silver-tongue. I would soon find out how delicious it would feel to let myself fall into this forbidden surrender.

My Review:
Forbidden Surrender is such an excellent start to what I'm sure will be an excellent series. We are introduced to Kristen, a marketing associate trying to land Vincent Sorensen as her firm's newest client. Their connection is magnetic, but Kristen wants to prove herself on a professional terms not personal ones. Vincent make her want things she thinks she shouldn't want and detracts from her job-oriented goals. Kristen does fight tooth and nail trying to stand her ground against Vincent's charisma, but in the end she is swept up in all of his alpha glory.

Vincent has this ease about him, differing him from most book alphas. He's a CEO, but more than that he still holds his roots, and has not really changed from who he was before he made his money. Kristen on the other hand, even through glimpses of her past, has been changed inexplicably in the past couple of years. She is such a strong and determined person, and she is the perfect fit for Vincent. They are a perfect example of a give/take couple. They complement each other and neither one tries to absorb the other. They are equal parts independent and a duo.

This will be part of a serial, so don't expect the full story right away. BUT it does not necessarily end on a cliffhanger. While it is short-ish, it is a well developed story that is very enjoyable. I feel like most of the time, length should not be an issue, if the author delivers a developed, interesting and captivating story, then what's the problem? Bottom line, this is quick, intense and fun read that I would definitely recommend! And I will definitely be picking up the rest of the series!

Happy Reading!
