"A must read . . . lyrical, stunningly sexy, and brings swoons for days."-- Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author on Seven Nights to Surrender

In this stunningly sensual sequel to Seven Nights to Surrender, acclaimed author Jeanette Grey reunites readers with a young artist and the man who'll stop at nothing to have her . . .


Kate Reid's whirlwind romance with billionaire playboy Rylan Bellamy complicated her life in ways she'd worked to avoid. She'd fallen hard for his flirtatious charm and given him the one thing no other man had: her trust. Just as Kate began to imagine a future with Rylan, everything fell apart.

Now she's starting over in New York...but even the glittering streets of Manhattan can't erase the memory of Rylan knocking her off her feet and sweeping her into the most erotic, unforgettable week of her life.

It's been months, and Rylan still can't forget Kate. Months since he bared his soul at her feet. Months since he drove away the only woman to ever make him feel. Kate changed his world and now Rylan is determined to win her back-no matter what it takes. After crossing an ocean to reach her, he makes a deal with Kate: One more week, for one more chance. Now it's up to Rylan to show Kate all the ways they fit together . . . and prove that this player has met his perfect match.

This is the follow up to Seven Nights to Surrender and this book picks up right where Seven Nights ends. Rylan and Kate are not in Paris anymore and the fantasy that drove their vacation together is over. It’s back to real life for the both of them and after the disastrous way that Kate finds out about who Rylan really is, she’s back in New York…alone.

No more Rylan. No more sexy times. No more men.

She’s going to focus on her art and she’s got a big project that she needs to work on for her art program but when Rylan shows up at her apartment and begs for a second chance, for seven nights to show her the real him…she can’t help but agree to it because isn’t that what she wanted to know all along? Who he is? What really happened to him? The truth?

Rylan will do whatever it takes to win Kate back. She’s changed his life and he refuses to believe that she doesn’t have feelings for him anymore. He needs her in his life and he’s got seven nights to prove that she needs him in her life too. Putting himself out there is going to be hard and facing his past and sharing it all with Kate is going to be even harder but he’ll do anything to get her back.

The chemistry that I remember from Seven Nights is definitely back in action in this book. Rylan won me over from the very beginning. I saw him try night after night to let Kate in, show her just how important she’s become to him and the hot and cold way that Kate was with him and his feelings should have pissed me off and while it frustrated me, I didn’t hate it. Or Kate. I understood why she felt and acted the way that she did and I couldn’t even blame her. The reality that is Rylan is so different from the Rylan she knew from Paris. Their worlds are completely night and day and she didn’t know how they would be able to fit into each other’s lives.

She didn’t trust Rylan and he knew it. He had his work cut out for him because after the lies from Seven Nights, he was paying for not only his wrongdoings but also her fathers. Her father did a number emotionally on Kate and all these years later, she’s still struggling with her self esteem. Her self worth but over the course of the book, you see her blossom with Rylan’s help.

I adored seeing both Rylan and Kate again. Their romance continued to wow me at every turn in this book and while I was frustrated through some of the book, I still really enjoyed being wrapped up in Rylan and Kate’s world again. Their world was a lot different from Seven Nights but they weren’t. They were still the characters that I fell in love with and I wasn’t sure it was possible but I loved Rylan even more in this book than I did in the last one. He was just so dreamy.

Their romance was deliciously sexy and seeing them come together again, stronger than ever made me happy sigh when I finished. This was a great follow up and I’m so excited for Lexie and Dane’s story to start. Squee!

By day, he'll show her a side of Paris not found in any guidebook. By night, he'll introduce her to a passion beyond her wildest dreams. In this sensuous story of indulgence and desire, Jeanette Grey delivers one of the most romantic reads of the year and proves why she is fast becoming a must-read star.


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.

Grade: 4.5 out of 5

"He's the last resolution she intends to break. "

Still licking his wounds after a messy breakup, Nate is at loose ends for New Year's Eve and itching for a wild and crazy adventure to jolt him out of his rut. Now if he could only convince his best friend, Cassie, to break away for an impromptu road trip to Times Square.

Fun as it sounds, Cassie is reluctant to accept Nate's invitation. Little does he know, she's made resolutions of her own-resolutions about finally getting over her long-standing crush on him. Telling herself this trip will be the perfect "last hurrah," she packs her bag.

The trip is a fiasco from the outset. A car that won't start, a freak storm that strands them on the side of the road, and a long drive with too much time for true confessions. Cassie's rocks Nate to the core, leaving him wondering if the best thing that ever happened to him has been right in front of him all along.

Warning: Contains two best friends, a secret crush, and a road trip that leads to tow trucks, unexpected hotel-room sharing, epiphanies, sex, and more.

I love the friends-to-lovers trope and this short novella did not disappoint.

Nate wants to go on a road trip and his timing couldn’t be worse. First, he hasn’t given himself a lot of time to get there – Nate and Cassie live in North Carolina, and it two days before New Years. Also, Cassie has just decided that she needs to get over her secret crush on Nate and move on…and spending time with him in close proximity will not help her achieve that goal. But Cassie gives in and away they go, except his car doesn’t work and they have to use her beater, and then all of a sudden, Nate is noticing things about Cassie and there’s a tension in the air. And then she tells him she used to have a crush on him and now Nate is all kinds of confused, about things about Cassie. The road trip from hell kind of just gets worse from there. LOL

I liked When It’s Right. It was long enough that we get to know our characters and understand them. Cassie and Nate became friends because when she first met him, she saw how all the ladies threw themselves at him and she didn’t want to compete, so she was just herself. And it killed her whenever she’d see Nate hook up with his bobble-head socialite girlfriends that he didn’t really care for.

After his latest breakup, Nate realizes he needs to change. He was going to move in with his girlfriend because they were compatible. He didn’t love her. And it eats him when he thinks about Cassie possibly pulling away from him. So when she admits to her crush, he’s flabbergasted.

I don’t want to say anything more, because things get really cute on their hellish road trip and then when they get to New York it made me happy. LOL This is a New Years’ themed-romance and it definitely leaves you with a smile on your face.
