This 3rd installment in this series is another hit from this author. Honestly this series just keeps better and better. I cannot get enough of this couple. Jett and Brooke are a couple that have consume my mind ever since I got a hold of the Surrender Series. The way the author writes their story just has me so connected to the characters.
Their love story hasn’t been easy one. In this book the couple is dealing with secrets, past relationships, murder, threats and trust issues. Jett is a very domineering man. He is at a loss with Brooke’s unwillingness to let him take control. He understands that what she saw can be misconstrued but he loves her and needs to protect her. Brooke loves and has a constant yearning for Jett but seeing him kissing Tiffany and learning the secrets he has been hiding sends her running and fighting him off.
Brooke is trying to sort through all the secrets that have come to light and the possibility that Jett has moved on with Tiffany. Pregnant with Jett’s child, Brooke starts to believe that all Jett and she shared was a lie. Brooke this time around, is smarter and starts to search for answers on her own. When she believes Jett is trouble she will risk everything to make sure he is not in danger. Brooke is having a problem trusting and believe in Jett’s love and that is what is keeping her closed off to Jett.
“Jett our relationship’s not what bothers me, It’s all the secrets you’re keeping that destroy us, I feel like I can never trust you fully if you keep things hidden from me.”
“I know you have questions. But like I said, It’s complicated. I’m not sure you’d understand and I’m not willing to risk it.”
Jett for the first in many years is losing control. Losing the woman and child he loves because of secrets he kept from Brooke. Every time he tried to take control it only pushed Brooke further and further away from him. The worst part it never dawned on him that asking Tiffany for help would make her think there was more than what it was. He doesn’t blame Brooke for her lack of trust but his main goal in life is to keep her and his unborn child safe. Even if it means conceding to the one thing she wants, and that is for him to leave her alone.
“I love you, Brooke, I really do., but there is no point in staying if you think I’m capable of hurting you. I’d rather kill myself than see you hurt. I’d rather go away than make you feel unsafe around me.”
Even when Jett and Brooke are at odds the connection between the two are felt throughout the pages. Their disagreements are epic, strong and full of love and lust. There is no denying the passion and love they have for one another, the each feed off of it.
“You couldn’t control yourself when you thought I was Check.”
“Maybe that’s exactly what I wanted to happen. If there were another guy, I would have done him. REAL GOOD.”
“Just to make one thing clear, you’ll never fu*k another guy. You are mine, Brooke. And I don’t share. Do you, Brooke? Do you love me?”
“I do, sadly. Maybe even too much.”
“Then tell me you’re mine?”
“Mine. You’ll always be mine, Brooke. As I will be yours. And that’s a promise.”
Someone is out get Brooke. One thing remains true in the constant battle of secrets is that their love just grows stronger. Jett will do anything to protect Brooke and his child and is willing to bring down anyone who dares to try to hurt them and keep them from him. As usual, the author does an amazing job with taking readers into Jett and Brooke’s life. It is exciting, passionate and steamy. I don’t think I will ever get tired of reading about these two characters and their journey. The last installment to Jett and Brooke’s journey comes out sometime in the spring and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
