Overall rating: 4.5 Rockin' Stars!!!!
"He'd known her for five months, but felt like a lifetime for how attracted he was to her."
"He didn't have many friends, but he valued his friendship with Angel. She was kind and giving and one of the few women who didn't look at him like he was an un-caged tiger."
"Angel was someone he'd never imagined having in his life, but always hoped for. She was more than worth the wait, and he was never letting her go."
"She felt like something had shifted between them but wasn't sure what."
"She made him want to loose control, something he never did. She also made him want things he'd never imagined for his own life, like a family and someone to come home to every night."
"She wanted her life back and that was mainly because of Vadim. She was a man she didn't want to leave. Even if her first instinct had been to flee, the time for running was over. She wouldn't live in fear forever."
OMG! I didn't think it could get any better, but just WOW, Katie Reus. I am totally smitten by her new Serafina: Sin City Series! The characters in Sweetest Surrender are very endearing. From the beginning I was drawn to both characters, Vadim and Angel. Vadim is former special forces Marine intelligence, who has an un-caged tiger appeal. Although he puts off an "untouchable" vibe, he's always longed to be linked or have someone to belong to him alone. Men are intimidated by his ingenious wits and women are wowed by his beautiful physique, yet mysterious aura. Then Angel stepped into his life. She is a fiery red head whose running from a scary past. There is instant attraction between the two that heats up over a five month friendship. Finally after long last the two give in to their long awaited passion. I just can't say enough about this couple or this book. I didn't want to put it down once I started reading. The power of their story is captivating. This book is passion overflowing and exciting that kept me on the edge, craving more. Absolutely a job well done Katie Reus! I definitely can't wait to read the next story...Grēta
