SEVEN NIGHTS TO SURRENDER
Kate arrives in Paris hoping to find inspiration. Instead she finds Rylan. In a swirl of stolen kisses and hot, tangled sheets, Kate is quickly swept away by the sexy stranger, longing to surrender to his expert touch. With Rylan, nothing is forbidden-except the truth.
An American ex-pat worth millions, Rylan never flaunts his fortune. Rather, he guards his identity from everyone, especially women. No strings, no commitments, no complications. But the second his lips taste Kate's soft, sweet skin, everything changes. For the first time, Rylan has found someone to share his every want and need. Yet he knows that secrets stand between them. To keep her, he'll need to confess the truth before it's too late . . . even if doing so could mean losing Kate forever.
What a lovely book this turned out to be.
It was a sweeping romance that hooked me from the beginning and had me swooning here and there throughout the entire book. It was filled with good times, laughter and a complicated romance with secrets and a whole lot of passion. I loved it!
Kate just graduated from college and is trying to figure out if she’s going to take that desk job waiting for her back home or if she’s going to follow her passion for art and continue on to graduate school, pursuing some more art. In an effort to figure her shit out, she takes a trip to Paris and spends her days sketching the city of love but her trip takes a detour once she meets ex-pat, Rylan.
Rylan sweeps her off her feet and promises to show her the real Paris and not just the stops on a tour. He shows her the Paris that she longs to capture in her art and he also shows her a passion that she wasn’t prepared for. Not that he was any more prepared for the passion that ignites between them.
I loved seeing these two grow closer and closer together with each passing page. I was swept up in the romance that was Rylan right alongside Kate. I fell for the sights he shared with her, the romance of the city, the bits and pieces that we find out over the course of this book. I was completely swept away with all things Rylan. I wanted to know more about him, what his big secret was and when the shit hits the fan, my heart broke right along with Kate’s.
It’s not perfect because there were times when Rylan’s secret threatened to do me in but I never wanted the story to end. I wanted to know everything and I wanted Rylan to fix everything. I understood where Kate was coming from so I wasn’t even mad that she was so stubborn in her madness toward Rylan. I’m glad that things turned around though.
This was a great romance. A story that hooked me right from the beginning and even though it ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, I’m not even mad. I’m just anxious for more but I’ll wait for more Rylan. He’s worth the wait.
Such a good story.
