Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Beautiful Surrender by Priscilla West

~ Synopsis ~

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 was a quick, sexy read for me. I loooooved Vincent Sorenson as the story’s leading man. Billionaire surfer with nipple piercings? Yes, please! Vincent was determined, sexy, dirty-talking, and sweet. He checked all my boxes.

In the most recent photo I could find, he was up to his waist in the sea and approaching the shore beaming a heart-stopping smile like some kind of mythical sex god eager to claim his offerings.
When he meets wealth manager Kristen, he knows exactly what he wants and sets his sights on winning her over. I have to say, I really liked Kristen. She was a successful Harvard grad who, although immediately attracted to Vincent, didn’t instantly fall at his feet and give in to his advances. She values her job and independence and makes the man work for it. Kristen also has a traumatic past she has struggled to put behind her and doesn’t want to muddy the waters by introducing a new man into her life.
You have no idea how demanding I can be.”
The majority of Forbidden Surrender focuses on Vincent’s pursuit of Kristen and her attempt to keep their relationship professional. The sexual tension is HIGH and when they finally do come together, the scenes are hot, hot, hot. It’s a brief book and I enjoyed it for the escapism. It does end on a mild cliffhanger, and I’m anxious to get my hands on the next installment in the series!

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 revealed 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.

I eagerly jumped into the second installment of the Surrender series, Secret Surrender. Kristen has finally decided to give Vincent a chance and see where things go between them. Lucky girl! Vincent is super sexy and romantic, as well as thoughtful and protective. And, as always, ridiculously hot. Can I just say, cyber sex?!

The conclusion to the Surrender Series by Priscilla West.

No one is who they seem to be.

I let Vincent into my heart because he seemed so different from everyone in my conservative world of wealth management. I thought we shared something special, but Vincent has been playing me this entire time.

As our relationship reaches a crisis point, a man from my past returns looking for a second chance. Is my ex really looking for redemption or is his goal something more sinister?

I try my best to hold it all together, until I discover a revelation that will change everything.

The final installment in the Surrender Series, Beautiful Surrender, is a little different from the other two books in that it jumps back and forth in time. I really liked this aspect of it because it fully fleshed out both Kristen and Vincent for me and gave me a better perspective of what each of them had been through. In Beautiful Surrender, Kristen tries to come to terms with a huge secret Vincent has kept from her and must decide whether she can forgive him and more forward with their relationship.

Sounds like he’s a knight with shining abs.”

Vincent has fallen hard for Kristen and really wants to make things work. Although he is often referred to as a “bad boy”, I found Vincent to be the exact opposite. He’s a risk-taker when it comes to his business and extreme sports, but when it comes to Kristen and his family (especially his sister and adorable nephew Brady), Vincent wears his heart on his sleeve.

But if we make it through this together, we’ll be stronger. If we make it through this alone, we’ll just be better at being alone.”

Just as Kristen decides that maybe Vincent is worth the risk to her heart, something huge happens and she finds herself in the position of keeping something from Vincent. As she struggles with the situation, her unstable ex-boyfriend shows up and all hell breaks loose. I’m hesitant to say anymore because I don’t want to give any of the storyline away. Trust me, you’ll want to read for yourself to find out what happens!

Beautiful Surrender is full of drama and angst and I found myself on the edge of my seat, not sure where the story was going to end up. I really enjoyed this series and the final installment wrapped it up nicely. The epilogue was an added bonus and I shut off my Kindle with a smile on my face. Like the other two Surrender books, this one is a quick read and great for when you have an afternoon to yourself. I would highly recommend giving this series a try!
