For me Beautiful Surrender was the best novel in the series, it combined all elements of a good book for me, suspense, angst and romance.
In this one, Kristen is stalked by her ex boyfriend who is beyond nuts! Vincent wants to protect her at all costs, I loved him more in this book- He was better developed, seemed more human and his love and need to protect Kristen left no doubt as to his loyalty and dedication to her.
“I’ve felt this way for a while. I knew it was just attraction at first. But after taking you to my island, I realized it was more. So much more. I love you, Kristen. I mean truly love you. Not obsession. Not lust. Not selfish possession. Not some kind of blind idealism. Not some sick, twisted version of love—but the real thing. One with eyes open. One with respect. One that never underestimates the hardships to its existence, never takes the other person for granted. The only kind of love there really is.”
Kristen in this installment is struggling with her ability to trust Vincent again. Kristen for me is one of the most enjoyable heroines, however in this book I thought she was a bit stubborn, unreasonable and at the same time naive.
What I loved about this series:
1- The pace was smooth, fast and did not resort to fillers just to stretch it out and make it longer.
4- The writing was amazing, no editing mistakes were spotted. I will definitely read more of Ms West’s books in the future.
5- The steam factor, it was hot but did not overtake the whole book. I loved how Priscilla West did not write sex scene after sex scene but concentrated more on the story development.
6- How the issue of domestic abuse was addressed and the fact it wasn’t glossed over.
What didn’t work for me ;
1- I thought it would have been better if all three books were combined into one full length novel!
2- Ariel, did not feel that was resolved to my satisfaction (view spoiler) but that could only be me!
If you want a fast, well written read that is not high on angst, this series is for you! I would recommend it definitely.
