R E V I E W ➠ Surrendering To Him by Hope Jones
She’s an investigative journalist with a heartbreaking past. He’s the badass PI who has her in his sights.
When Phoebe Danvers’s job lands her in danger, local badass and ex-FBI agent turned PI Huxley Carson steps in to save her. The only problem with that is she doesn’t want to be saved. She wants to be left alone to focus on work. Unfortunately, Huxley is determined to help, so she settles on keeping him at arm’s length—something he’s determined not to let her do.
What Phoebe doesn’t know is Huxley has been interested in her for years but never had a way in until now. With the push and pull of their new relationship and danger drawing closer, Phoebe begins to wonder if it’s time to surrender to the man consuming her soul.
Or is it already too late?
RELEASE DATE: March 5, 2020
NEW TO ME AUTHOR and I fell in love with the blurb and the sweet cover, I was not ready for this since it is a new author, do I don’t know their writing style very well. So this is how I felt:
The hero Hux is a big, handsome, alpha, sexy and sweet man…he works a dangerous job but is his own boss and knows how to handle himself. The heroine Phoebe is a sweet, sassy, active (don’t want to use the word hyper) beautiful woman that is a investigative journalist, so it can somewhat be dangerous. After two years of being around one another, Hux and Phoebe essentially first made contact if that makes sense. He pulls her out of a dangerous situation and she is livid pissed at him. This is where they start..and I’ll stop here because I want to explain my feelings towards the heroine…the hero seems calm, alpha, love the way he talks to her or in general and is towards the heroine, she on the other hand kind of grew on me the wrong way: She seems very ping-pong hyper at times and I am left with not knowing that I jumped from one rock to another. There were times I just, it felt off…like one where she was pissed at him for something that I don’t know didn’t seem right to be THAT overly-pissed off about since the hero explained to her from the beginning regarding the item and what he did…so that kind of rubbed me the wrong way. But in the end you do understand that she is a girl that lost everything, and it isn’t easy for her to open up to be hurt again. Aside from that I enjoyed their banter, Hux really is the sweetest and swooniest man especially towards our heroine who is a spit-fire and he tames her. There is quiet angst in here, but the sexy scenes definitely do not disappoint. To me, this was a great potential and enough for me to read more by this new author I discovered, for sure!!
