New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Book

Meeting Jett was like lightning. Dangerous. Better left untouched. And better forgotten. But lightning always strikes twice.

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, doesn’t do relationships. When she’s sent to a remote estate to finalize a real estate deal, she discovers her new boss is no other than the guy she left naked in bed.

Sexy, dangerously handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield attracts trouble, and women, like a lightning rod. But the night he meets Brooke he gets more than he bargained for. The green-eyed millionaire playboy isn’t used to taking no for an answer, and he isn’t about to start now.

When he proposes two months of no strings intimacy, Brooke is intrigued and accepts his proposal. Little does she know Jett’s determined to claim the one woman he can’t have, pulling her deeper into his dangerous world.

A man who doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer.
A woman afraid to surrender to love.
Two lives that are about to cross…and secrets laid bare.

The sequel, Conquer Your Love, is out now.

“I hope you don’t mind spending so much time with me,” Jett said. “I promise to be good, and I won’t be too hard on you.” His tone oozed amusement as he added, “Unless you want me to.” “You drive like a maniac,” I said through clenched teeth. “That’s not the only thing I do like a maniac, Brooke.” His hand moved away from the steering wheel and settled on my thigh. This book was hot. So hot, I still need a shower and I am fawning myself. There are no words to express how much I loved this book. The suspense, the chemistry, the passion between Jett and Brooke and the drama, the pain she goes through. I loved everything, even the sad (heart-wrenching) part that made me cry. It was amazing. The words flew so well and the passion was sexy, I was forgetting I was reading a book. It has been a long time a book has done this: pulling at my heart strings and leaving me craving, shocked and wanting, panting for more- for Jett, for their story to continue. Oh Jett. I think I am in love with him. Even his name is like chocolate. Tasty. And I loved his perspective at the end. It made things so much clearer. And now that the book has ended, I don't want to get out. I just want to read it again because I am not yet ready to open my heart to another book, to new characters, because all I can think of is Jett and Brooke, how things continue, if things will be okay. One thing: It's impossible to get bored with this book. From the beginning I was hooked, and throughout the book I was glued to the pages- right down to the end. There are so many quotes I highlighted because I loved them so much. One of my favourite quotes: "His eyes sparkled again, and in that instant I felt a strong urge to get up and leave him behind. I had been wrong to think what Sean and I had was special. He wasn’t ‘the one’. He couldn’t be. ‘The one’ would never leave me behind." In the harsh veracity of the real world, he was rich, successful, and one of the most desired bachelors in New York—and I was, well, me. A world I hoped wouldn’t tear us apart by pointing out just how different our lives were. “You’re probably eager to get home,” Jett whispered in my ear so the flight attendant serving coffee wouldn’t hear us, “but will you stay with me one more night? I’m not quite ready to let this go.” I wanted a simple romance book, but I got far more: romance, passion, suspense. This book was a roller coaster ride that took my breath away and made me wish I hadn't read it so fast. This was one of the best books I ever read.

I don't generally read romance books or books that come after fifty shades, but I have to congratulate the author. She can really write hot sexy stuff. I love the way she can portray sensuality and passion without being crude, obscene or disgusting. Meet Jett and Brooke. After a drunken night, Brooke finds out that her new boss is.....the guy she threw out of her bed. Yep, that guy she would rather not meet again.Jett is fascinated by Brooke and by the way she rejects him. And the more she pushes him away, the harder he tries to win her over. Brooke knows there is attraction between him and her. She just doesn't want to accept it, so Jett has to earn it. And he does....in his own -sexy- ways. I loved Jett and his playful ways. He was confident and dominant without being too pushy. I have a super crush on him. ha ha. One thing I have to say: I really enjoyed the plot. I felt that both had amazing chemistry. Reading this book resulted in feelings of adrenaline and in a rush of happiness. I felt good reading it, and I wanted more.

WHERE ARE MY SOCKS? Where are my socks? I can't find them, because this book blew them right off! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better I come up with something else that just blew my mind. I loved everything about this book. There are no words to describe it, except...oh my god, oh my god, this book was delicious. I have been salivating ever since I read about Jett. What I wouldn’t give for a hot, hot southern bad boy...The interaction between Jett and Brooke, the passion and the steamy scenes were amazing. I know I should be calm and rational, but I can't. Not with this book. Not with what happened. Not with that ending. My head is still spinning. I had high expectations of this book and I had no idea that I would fall for this book.

Game, Set, Match Jett doesn't know the meaning of no and Brooke does her best to teach him it. However neither of them is going down without a fight and in the game of love its anyone's game. This is a fast paced romance with tough heroine's, annoyingly sexy hero's, and some great action. New York was the perfect setting for these two character's and really matched there stubborn attitudes. My favorite part of the book was the steamy and sometimes hilarious banter between these two. I always like a good battle of wits. The romance itself was nicely paced and believable. There was definitely some chemistry between Jett and Brooke and it practically sizzled of the pages. Brooke isn't one for permanent relationships. She is a fun, smart, and independent heroine that knew how to get things done. I really liked her and felt that she was a perfect match for Jett. Jett has a similar personality to Brooke and yet from the moment he meets her he knows he has met his match. He is charming and witty, especially with Brooke. Jett is a bit stubborn, but it proves to be a benefit when it comes to Brooke. I really enjoyed seeing how he went about wooing Brooke. For a fast paced romance and some fun banter check out Surrender Your Love!

Surrender Your Love will leaving you begging for mercy... I was so excited to read Surrender Your Love from the moment I saw it. One look at that cover and then the promising synopsis, I was hooked. So when the author sent me an ARC, I immediately dropped the other books I was reading and jumped in headfirst. And wow, was I in for a treat. Surrender Your Love was such a great book! The story gets off to a fun start, with Brooke and Jett meeting under strange circumstances, and then they keep "meeting" in awkward situations. Brooke is trying so hard to maintain her cool, and Jett just seems to push all her buttons. When they begin to work together, Jett and Brooke are pushed to their limits, and somethin's gotta give. Good times, yes? It really was. Brooke was a fairly standard romance heroine. She's smart, ambitious, and is absolutely not looking for a new relationship, particularly not with a man like Jett. She has some lingering issues from her past. And while those play a part in who she is today, and her inability to commit to a long-term relationship, they don't take over the story. But what's great about her, is the narration, through her voice, is refreshing. She was honest to and about herself without being whiny or negative. AND, Brooke is not melodramatic. Her internal voice is as fun as her dialogue. She was a cool chick. Now, at first glance, Jett might seem like the typical domineering hero. He is a man who has very specific ideas in mind for Brooke, and he's not afraid to tell her what he wants. BUT, Jett is a genuinely funny, and very naughty man. It was so nice to have a take-control guy who is also kind and respectful to his lady. Jett was confident, but he made his cockiness fun (no pun intended!). Every time Brooke mentioned his dark, messy hair, deep green eyes, and crooked smile, my heart started racing right along with hers. Unff. Jett was sooooo sexy! I assumed that Surrender Your Love would be a steamy story. I mean, look at that cover! There is a significant portion of Jett's derriere on display and I, for one, could ogle him for an nice chunk of time. The story, though, isn't full on sex, sex, sex. In fact, there is a nice, slow burn build-up to some very steamy moments. The story definitely moves into the "Hot Zone", but not so much that it will scare those who like their love scenes a little more on the tame side away. So, as I was reading Surrender Your Love, I thought it was a fun and charming story of two people who just might be falling in love. It was sweet and steamy and romantic. But I just had this feeling that something was big was looming ahead. I couldn't put my finger on it, but I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. And. Then. It. Did. Something big happens, guys. And I did not see it coming! I pride myself on picking up little clues and guessing the plot twists way before they are revealed. I had an idea something was going to happen because, HELLO!, I read the synopsis. But man, this twist was good and Ohh...did it hurt. The ending bumped this really good story that I intended to give four solid stars up to an "OMG! That was awesome!" five stars. The best way I can explain it was the feeling I got at the end of Fallen Too Far. It made me furious, puzzled, hurt, and most importantly, left me desperate for book two, Conquer Your Love. If your looking for a charming, sexy story that will leave you begging for more, check out Surrender Your Love.

This book was so amazing. Even before I saw this cover and the description, I knew this is my kind of book. It just spoke to me and i knew I had to get it. Maybe it's the man on the cover or the woman. I don't know but I had to read it, not even minding to read the sample. Within a few pages, I was in love with the characters. Brooke: real estate girl; party girl; afraid of commitments Jett: Rich guy; Gets what he wants; Doesn't believe in relationships UNTIL one day: Bad Boy meets Bad Girl and they decide to make an arrangement that is about to change their lives. I think Jett is so hot!!!!!!!The sex scenes, I don't know how to say it, they just left me clutching the table. My heart was in my throat so many times. It hasn't happened to me in a very long time. I love everything about this book. When I read this book, I feel like her... I experience that moment. That moment of love. The best book I have read this year!

“When I am done with you you’ll be panting my name, begging for release,” Jett whispered. “You promised fire. I don’t mind a little pain,” I whispered against his hand.” J.C Reed snags you from page one with this passionate and fiery tale. Brooke and Jett have an undeniable attraction that simmers as the story progresses. Both of our main characters are heading into unknown territory with one another, and are fooling themselves into believing their attraction will fade with time. Through a series of circumstances in her youth, Brooke has a fear of intimacy and love. She does not get close enough to any man, to let herself really get hurt. With Jett, all that goes out the window. She is falling, and falling hard. Can Brooke and Jett overcome all their past scars and bias so they can be together? Can they both learn to trust each other? Can one lie ruin everything between them? Surrender Your Love is a dynamic story that draws you in and makes you sympathize and feel for the characters right from the beginning, even the annoying, yet endearing best-friend. This story will make you feel passion, arousal, longing, breathlessness, heartache, and betrayal. With such a roller coaster of emotions radiating from our lovers, the reader will laugh, cry, gasp, and ache for more. J.C. Reed has written the start of an erotic journey of a man who wants the one thing he can’t buy, and a woman who is on the cusp of self discovery. A beautiful and stunning beginning to what should be a tale of learning the give and take of love.

First of all, let me just get this out there....Way to leave a girl freaking hanging!! I mean talk about cliffhangers...ugh. *Sigh* Okay moving on... I will be honest and say I wasn't sure I was going to like this book once I started. Which really bothered me because one, it sounded really good and I was really wanting to like it. And two umm have you seen that cover?? Three everyone around me has just loved it, I figured something was wrong with me. I think I wasn't connecting with Brooke very well, she seemed to contradict herself in the beginning about her ex Sean. At first it was all "we have an open relationship and there's no future" to then after an oops type drunken "hook-up" it turns to "oh no I'm a cheat and I really wanted to see what kind of a future Sean and I have". The other thing was later when she starts this thing with Jett he was so bi-polar with her. Literally like hot one minute, (and I do mean hot...holy hell I think I'm still a bit flushed!), then he just like shuts off and for no visible reason he acts like he's mad at her and pushes her away. I mean I just couldn't identify with that. Why would a girl want to stick around and be with a guy like that? Just because he's gorgeous? It just felt wrong. I mean now I think I understand. I stuck through to the end and I'm glad I did because when it comes down to it I finally ended up really liking this book and I want book two so bad!! I'm dying to find out if my assumptions about Jett are true or not. Even how things were left I'm still on board and Team Jett and I'm hoping that he won't let me down!

This book was HOT because Jett and the sex was HOT. When I wasn't reading it I was thinking about it, eager to get home from work and continue. This is one of the best books I have read.
