by Priscilla West
Books 1-3

Forbidden Surrender by Priscilla West
Surrender #1
4 LOVE Vincent Stars

Blurb - “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.

Forbidden surrender is the first book in the Surrender series by Priscilla West.

I have been lucky enough to have been gifted a copy of the by the publisher in exchange for an honest review so here goes.

I loved this book, the moment Vincent made his first appearance I was hooked by this book. There's something about him that's incredibly appealing. I love that he's a bit alpha, but he's also mysterious and darkly sexy.

I love a book boy that's make you instantly fantasise about what they would look like if they were real.

Kirsten is a more difficult character to like; she's the typical fearful female character who denies she wants Vincent but obviously does.

I despair of some female characters, where are all the strong females who make a guy work for them!!!

I know that Kristen talks a good game at the start but she naked and shagging Vincent literally days after lecturing him about not having sex unless it's meaningful!!!

Luckily I'm swooning over Vincent so I'm going to overlook Kristen being a bit pathetic and focus on all the lovely sex and Vincent bring a super protective, alpha sex God lol.

I'm straight onto book #2 now Secret Surrender.

Forbidden surrender gets 4 stars from me.

Secret Surrender by Priscilla West
Surrender #2
3 Thank God For The Hot Sex Stars
Blurb - 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.

Secret surrender is book #2 in the Surrender Series and I have been gifted a copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Grrrrrrr this book has frustrated me!!!

This whole instalment is just a bit whiny!!!

Don't get me wrong the sex is sexy but Vincent and Kristen’s relationship is just plain weird.

I really liked Vincent in the first instalment but in this book he comes across as a bit of a knob!

If you are travelling for 90% of the time don't get into a doomed relationship. Because let's be honest what Kristen and Vincent are at the moment is only a couple of steps up from bootie call!!!

Oh My God what is wrong with Kristen?? You have only been dating the bloke for a few weeks and in that time you have only seen him like 4 times. Who the hell do you think you are to be telling him he needs to change his life and his business!!!

If I didn't need to know what happens next id be tempted to abandon this series on pure principle of how annoying she is!!!

The sex in this book is hot, and to be honest it’s a massive redeeming factor. It keeps hinting at a kinkier undertone. Blindfolds, bondage and anal play, I say bring on the smut!!!

Secret surrender gets 3 stars from me.

Beautiful Surrender by Priscilla West
Surrender #3
2.5 Whiny Stars

Blurb - 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.

Beautiful surrender is book #3 in the Surrender Series. I was gifted a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review so here goes.

Well that was all very dramatic, make ups, break ups and unexpected arrivals.

For me this was all just a bit too much!!!

Neither Vincent nor Kristen comes across as particularly likeable characters. And together I thought they were a bit of a train wreck!!

I really wanted to like Vincent, in the first book I thought he was great but in this book he was just overly emotional and whiny.

Kristen is just a nightmare, she's whiny and childish and I honestly couldn't find a redeeming characteristic in her.

A question I have to ask is why when you have mace and a taser do you not manage to use either of them in an emergency situation. She just fell into the typical damsel in distress role "no, please stop" grrr just so frustrating!!!

All this drama could have worked in a full length novel but not in a short novella.

Sorry but this series started well and finished poorly, what a disappointment.

Beautiful surrender gets 2.5 stars from me.
