Release Day Blitz: Review + #Giveaway: Sweet Surrendering by Chelsea M. Cameron #SWEETSURRENDERING

Sweet Surrendering by Chelsea M. Cameron

October 2013

She’s his boss. He doesn’t care. This office isn’t big enough for the two of them…

When Rory Clarke ends up hiring the guy she spent one steamy night with to be her administrative assistant, she's determined to keep things professional.

Lucas Blaine has other plans for her. He wants Rory, and it’s hard to resist his stunning blue eyes, chin dimple and the way he fills out a suit. Everywhere she looks, there he is, giving her a panty-melting smile and pulling her away for the most amazing (and satisfying) sex she’s ever had in her life.

What starts off as one sexual encounter turns into multiple trysts in and out of the office and the lines she’d tried to draw so carefully are blurring. But the closer they get, the more Rory realizes that there are things about Lucas she doesn’t know, things he’s hiding from her. She’ll have to decide if she can surrender to her feelings or get out while she still can.

Sweet Surrendering is available for just .99¢ for a LIMITED TIME ONLY!

This book was fun and exciting. I loved the idea of a taboo office romance where the one in charge was a woman. It was fun getting to know the characters while they played their game of cat and mouse, and even more exciting was the anticipation of how or when they'd be discovered, and what it would mean for their nocturnal romps.  

I really wanted to love Lucas, or is that Lucah, and I did for the most part, but there were times when I found him to be a bit juvenile. I almost thought the big secret he was keeping was that he was really some rich college kid who'd made a bet with his buddies on how long he'd be able to bed a sophisticated woman like Rory. I also thought he may be hiding his kink for submission. He obviously loved a woman in charge, and he was eager to please.

 Rory on the other hand was quite sweet. I didn't get the bitch vibe from her at all so I was surprised when she kept referring to her 'bitch face'. 

There were other fun characters in this story. Sloane was spunky and such a great friend. I'd love to know more about her story though. She was always busy with her designs, and when not, she was looking after her friends. Then there was Fin. I really didn't see the point of him in this story, other than possibly being the missing piece of a love triangle. But he wasn't, so again, I feel he was more of a filler character than anything else.

It was great to read a contemporary romance in which the characters are not completely flawed or broken. They have their little secrets, but they were never abused, weren't dying of some or other disease, and didn't have crazy exes trying to force themselves between the MCs. If you are looking for a quick, light read, this is definitely it.
