Forbidden Surrender by Priscilla West

‘The hours I’ve spent analyzing his images in the name of research did not-could not-prepare me for the real thing. In the most recent photo I can find, he was up to his waist in the sea and approaching the shore beaming a heart stopping smile like some sort of mythical sex God is there to clean his offerings. It wasn’t difficult to imagine virgins voluntarily saw the sacrificing themselves to him. But that picture was taken months ago and his dirty blonde hair and then short then. Now it flowed, framing is features like a portrait fit for display in a museum. For an instant all I could think about was how it would feel to run my hands through those silky locks.’

Vincent is a bad boy billionaire who made his money doing what he loves.

Kristen is a relatively straight-laced (self description) hedge fund manager.

When she literally falls onto him in a meeting, sparks fly.
He waved me over. In disbelief, I pointed my finger at my chest as I mouthed “me?” and he nodded. What did he want with me? I looked to Riley for advice and was met with her shooing motions. Sensing an opportunity to clear up any confusion over this morning’s meeting, I worked my way through the crowd to him. The women around him were reluctant to make room, shooting me catty-glares, but I managed to wiggle through an opening. “Hello Kristen,” he said. He did remember my name. “Hello Mr. Sorenson.” “Please, just call me Vincent. I didn’t expect to see you here, but now that you are, this’ll be a lot more interesting.” He grinned

Lets just say that he’s a risk taker and from the moment they meet (again) she knows being with him could be one crazy thrill ride.

I gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars. I did really like that she had a financially stable job and could take care of herself. On the other hand some of the things that she let him get away with got on my nerves (especially since I had to hear all about how it wasn’t a good idea in her head). I did enjoy the dynamic between them with him being more of a risk taker and her well, not. They added to and tempered each other’s personalities. WARNING: This is the first book in a trilogy (but they are all out as well) NOT a standalone!
