My Rating: 4 ★★★★☆


He’s dangerous, sexy, and everything she wants…

Sierra hit it off with Hayden from the moment they met. The dangerously sexy, tattooed ex-SEAL is one of the best friends she’s ever had—and the main star in her wildest fantasies. But he doesn’t see her that way. And she’d die of embarrassment if he found out she was still a virgin.

And he’s about to make his claim…

Hayden’s struggled to keep his attraction to the beautiful, dark haired casino chef a secret. He’s not good enough for her. But when an attacker targets Sierra, Hayden’s protective instincts go into overdrive. With the attraction between them burning out of control, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her and convince her they’re meant to be together.

Author note: First Surrender is part of the Wicked Firsts anthology, releasing August 19, 2013. It can be purchased as part of the multi-author box set or individually.

My Thoughts:

I’ve said it before, but here’s another great story from Katie Reus. This is a spin off novella of the Red Stone Security Series and intro into the new series. If the rest of the series is like this I can’t wait to read them. It was refreshing to read a book with no editing issues that I could find. The characters are remarkably developed for the length of the story.

Hayden and Sierra have been friends since he first started working security at The Serafina. They got together regularly to hang out. Sierra has feelings for Hayden, but doesn’t think he could ever fall for her. It will take Hayden admitting his attraction to her for her to overcome her insecurity and Sierra being attacked pushes him over the line and he lets her know how he feels. That it was her inner strength and not taking anything from him that got his attention from their first meeting.

If you’re looking for a quick read that has a very hot Hero and strong heroine this is the one. Did I mention that the intimacy between the two is very steamy and well done? If you like the Red Stone Security series you’ll like this one as well.
