Book Description


Raffaello (Rafe) Palazzo takes what he wants with no regrets. Arianna (Ari) Lynn Harlow has led a charmed life until tragedy strikes her family. He’s looking for a no-emotions attached mistress, she’s looking for redemption.

They are not a pair that should ever work, but undeniable attraction and devastating tragedies bring them together in the city by the bay where he fights to keep their relationship nothing more than an enjoyable way to meet his needs, and she battles to not lose herself in him. Spending time with Ari starts cracking the hard shell that Rafe has built around his heart, but he denies the affect she has on him until it’s too late to stop the inevitable conclusion that their relationship is headed for.

Rafe once believed in happily ever after, coming from a large Italian family. He’s got the Midas touch, since every endeavor he tries turns to gold. That all ends when his wife walks out the door and leaves him blindsided. His devastation quickly turns to steel when he decides no woman will fool him again. From that point on he treats relationships as nothing more than business transactions where both party’s come out mutually benefited.

Just when Ari has sunk to the lowest she’s ever been she finds an ad in the paper announcing a job that’s too good to be true. It turns out she’s right. She makes it through the intense rounds of interviews only to find out the job is for a mistress to the powerful Rafe Palazzo, owner of Palazzo Enterprises. Rafe gives her a day to think about whether she wants the position or not, and she’s sent on her way, only to find out her mother’s near-terminal position has taken a turn for the worse. Her mom’s only in the hospital because Ari messed up, and her mother’s the one who paid the price. Is Rafe her savior, or will he take her with him straight to the depths of hell?
Brittany's Review
5 Fantastic Stars!!

I read and heard so many great things about this book. I finally made the time to read and wow! I can't believe I waited so long to start this series. It is a fantastic book. I now have a new book boy friend to add to my list as well. Rafe is one sexy, dominating man and every woman should meet him. ;)

Surrender is about a young woman named Arianna Harlow who is going through lots of pain and guilt due to some choices she made in her life. Ari's mother is the only and only person in her life that she cares more than anything about and she would do practically anything for her. Ari must find a job to guarantee that her mother continues to get the care she needs as well as to be able pay her rent each month.

Ari's life is turned upside down when she goes in for an interview with Raffaello Pallazzo. What he asked of her was not what she had expected from a boss. Ari could not believe that she had been put in this predicament and yet she considers the job.

Throughout the book Ari tries to fight her desire for Rafe, just as he fights to get her to surrender to him. Can Ari continue with her pride intact or will she cave to Rafe's game as she must make the biggest decision her life.

This has been one of the best books I have read in so long. It pulled me in immediately, and I found it extremely hard to be able to put down my kindle for very long. I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. The ending is a cliffhanger, which I hate but yet love. It leaves me wanting and needing more. For all of you looking for a great book, or series for your nights, then look no more if you have yet to get yours hands on this one. It is worth every second of your time and more!

So kick back, put up your feet, and enjoy this amazing story!! <3
