“What gives you a thrill Kristen?”

The conclusion to the Surrender Series by Priscilla West.

No one is who they seem to be.

Kristen let Vincent into her heart because he seemed so different from everyone in her conservative world of wealth management. She thought they shared something special, but when she realizes that Vincent has been playing her the entire time, her heart is crushed.

As Kristen’s relationship with Vincent reaches a crisis point, a man from Kristen’s past returns looking for a second chance. Is her ex-boyfriend really looking for redemption or is his goal something more sinister?

Kristen struggles to hold herself together, until she discovers a revelation that will change everything.

So if you read my reviews for the previous books you'll see that I quite enjoyed Forbidden Surrender, and absolutely loved Secret Surrender. Beautiful Surrender is a different story. I'm not saying I didn't like it, I definitely enjoyed it, and loved seeing Vincent and Kristen's HEA. But, I wanted more... maybe more is the wrong word. Let's go with different. I didn't foresee their story leading where it did. And while I usually welcome surprises in stories, this one kinda left me unsettled a bit. I felt that there was already so much going on leading up to the third book that the plot twists were just a smidge overbearing. So that's my piece on my negatives for the book. 

The positives definitely outweigh the negatives.  Kristen and Vincent are put through the ringer in Beautiful Surrender. They face obstacles that are tough for any couple in their situation yet, they handle it with a poise and a mostly confident demeanor. I saw a lot of growth in the two of them throughout this book. Partially because of the circumstances handed to them and partially because they were evolving as a couple. That is one of my major checklist points when I'm determining if I liked a series/book. The characters have to show growth. If they're just stationary in their life, then what was the point of the story? And Vincent and Kristen definitely showed me that they could have a life beyond a HEA. The matter at hand in this final book grounded Vincent a little bit. I always saw him as untouchable in the previous books but, in this one I saw a more sweet and protective side to him. You really see his feelings for Kristen come out and they are incredibly explosive. I will say this, prepare for some quiet, alone time when you're reading this. At times it was very intense. I felt like I was feeling so many emotions and there was definitely no way I was allowing myself to be distracted while I read Vincent and Kristen's conclusion.

As with the previous book Ms. West is a phenomenal writer. I love her style and the way she writes her characters. She makes them very personable. Every struggle and emotion I could feel and understand. Overall, I'm pleased with how Kristen and Vincent's story ended. I think together these three books make up a solid series that many will enjoy!

Book #1
Title: Forbidden Surrender
Release Date: August 23, 2013
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.

Book #2

Title: Secret Surrender
Release Date: September 24, 2013
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 were close to the start of something special.

Just when things were looking up for us, I would discover the one secret that Vincent never intended for me to find.
