Review: Conquer Your Love by J.C. Reed

Title: Conquer Your Love (Surrender Your Love #2)
Author: J.C. Reed
Expected release date: June 8, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group: New Adult
My Rating: ★★★

Meeting Jett was like bad luck. Dangerous. Unpredictable. And better avoided. In his game, the stakes are high. But are they worth the risk?

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, finds forgetting is hard, but forgiving is harder. When the man she trusted, betrayed her, the only way to forget is to move on. Brooke is determined to start a new life, until she meets him again: the green-eyed, sexy as sin, six foot two sex god. The man who played dirty. The man who played her.

Sexy, rich, and arrogant Jett Mayfield knows he has made mistakes. He could have any other woman, and yet it’s Brooke he wants. When second chances collide with secrets and Brooke is threatened by the past, Jett is determined to protect her. She accepts his help unwillingly because she needs him but she wants to play his game on her own terms. And she has no intention to forgive or let him back into her bed.

When the man she is supposed to hate is the one she should trust, will he conquer her…or lose her forever?

A woman who can’t forgive.
A man who has made mistakes.

Two lives that are about to cross again and more secrets laid bare.


Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

“Love happens in the blink of an eye. One moment your heart is yours, and the next it belongs to someone you never intended to give it to.”

This was a great follow up to Surrender Your Love.  It was hot, suspenseful, and best of all continued the story between Jett and Brooke. While we were left hanging at the end of the first book, this one picks up right where Surrender Your Love left off.

Without giving too much away, just in case you didn’t read the first book, Brooke has discovered some major news and believes Jett is a liar for not telling her. She feels used. Jett is trying to make Brooke understand that his actions were to protect her and that she just needs to trust him. The chemistry between Jett and Brooke is undeniable. It is amazing. You feel it during every scene where they interact.

“Don’t ever trust a guy with a southern accent, a lazy smile, and a casual stance, because he’s about the sneak his way into your panties without even trying”

Just when I thought I couldn’t fall any harder for Jett Mayfield, I did. He was amazing in this one. He was swoon worthy. He was everything you could want in a leading male and more. This story had the most twists and turns I have ever read in a New Adult novel. I loved it! I read it all in one sitting because I had to keep turning the page. In book 2, we get deeper into the story behind why Jett has kept this secret from Brooke and how he plans to protect her from danger. Jett and Brooke  grow as individuals as well as a couple. They become closer than ever before. 

The author is an amazing storyteller where you feel like you are in the scenes experiencing everything with the characters, themselves. I really enjoyed the author’s style of writing. The steamy scenes were amazingly written. There were times where the story had you on edge and things happened that were not expected. Every fan of new adult must read this!

Overall, this is my favorite in the series thus far. While I absolutely loved Surrender Your Love, Conquer Your Love definitely takes it up a notch! I am counting down the days until the third installment is out. I look forward to more work from this author. She knows how to write a good new adult story.
