And when Vincent, mysterious billionaire and sexy surfer, wants something he goes after it. I liked this story.
I found this book too short and in need of a little more depth, but in overall it was pretty entertaining and well written. Kristen was a good female protagonist, and I really liked Vincent. I couldn't get completely into him because he was very mysterious half of the time and I kept thinking that he had creepy second intentions. Maybe he has, I need to read the next book!

Enter Kristen, intelligent Harvard Graduate trying to establish her professional career. But what and whom does Vincent want? Kristen's last relations 3.
Kristen's last relationship didn't end well, she still carries the memories and they're not good ones She's not looking to open old wounds or go through heartache again.
Will her past come back to cause her trouble?? Are you sure, Kristen? Vincent has a seductive charm, it drips off him and he works his magic on Kristen, but where will it all end? Less is more and the characters, every now and again, had a tendency to over-speak. It just seemed to fizzle out But fortunately, as the next book is out, the continuation is there for the taking and I dived right in The lovely feelings I immediately warmed to the characters.
She has a sassiness about her that I really like and I found myself melting over Vincent as his body image was revealed throughout the book. Delicious and HOT!! A really nice light, quick read with lots of yummy sex. View all 33 comments.
Don't you want to get an authentic experience? We didn't fly thousands of miles just to go to some bar we could go to back home.: There are horror movies based on this situation. If anybody tries to get frisky with us,I'm going to melt their eyeballs. I loved the characters and I can't wait to find out more about them and their past. Loved the friendship between Riley and Kristen,let me tell you,Riley has no time for Kristen's shit.
And that dream Oh my God,I hope that everything will be fine. Poor Kristen. Already starting the next one!
I mean,yes,there is one scene at the end of the book where she had bondage for like 10 minutes,but it's far from being a BDSM book. Come on,guys.

Kristen Daley is a recent Harvard graduate who has teamed up with a co-worker and traveled to Cape Town, South Africa to meet with and convince Vincent to invest his money with their company. Kristen i 3. Kristen is a bit nervous, but is ready for the challenge, that is until they make eye contact. She stumbles and falls into him during their meeting while her co-worker does nothing but insult him.
She leaves the meeting flustered by the feelings he invokes in her and not really knowing if they are going to get the account. Later Kristen happens to run into Vincent in a local bar while out with her friend Riley. Vincent pushes her to help him win a bet by facing a fear of hers, spiders.
Then she hears from him. He offers her company the job, but with one condition added in…he will only work with her. But after they share a kiss, Vincent begins to pursue her. I loved that he took her surfing. I've never been surfing even though I love the water, but I was really imagining myself out there with Vincent. It's a great way for her to see him in his element and to check out those nipple rings. However the sexual tension is thick enough to cut with a knife.
He complies, but neither of them last long. Can Vincent protect her? Even though she feels safe with Vincent, will her heart be? I smell trouble coming. I enjoyed this quick little read. The instant attraction between Kristen and Vincent was felt through the pages. The book felt short, but it is part of a trilogy so I guess that is to be expected.
Now I really want to know what happens next. I will just have to pick up book two, Secret Surrender to find out. Copy provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

To Mrs. Priscilla West: God, I feel like such a turd. To all my GR friends: The reviews are more than favorable. Unfortunately , I 'm not a fan of heroine's who listen to their brain rather than their vagina Yes, I own it!.. West still wanted to take a chance on me. How could I not agree? I have much respect for Author whom go in search of honest reviewers.. Oh yeah, and that billionaire I was talking about.. View all 16 comments. Well that was a quick and sexy read!
I know this type of story has been written many times; sexy, hot, alpha billionaire guy meets beautiful, irresistible girl but I do enjoy these types of stories and Pricilla West did a great job with this one. Not only was Vincent gorgeous and sexy, he had a bit of a different vibe about him. Kristen was great too. Though she was smart, independent, was a wealth management analyst, she had a bit of a quirky side to herself that made her relatable Forbidden Surrender begins with Kristen and her colleague in Cape Town, Africa meeting with Vincent to make a bid to get a contract to manage all his millions.
Kristen has done her homework and knows what to expect but still her nerves on edge and her heart racing. Their first meeting is a bit awkward as most first meetings are and Kristen walks away uncertain whether they will get the contract or not. Now it was a waiting game. And as luck will have it Kristen and her friend Riley run into Vincent in a local bar.
Kristen finds herself in a less then professional situation with Vincent but when their eyes lock, there is no denying the chemistry between these two. Vincent proposes a relationship of business and pleasure but Kristen thinks she has too much to risk and turns the offer down and heads back to New York. Kristen returns home to await the decision from Vincent. When his decision is made, the contract is theirs but with a stipulation that Kristen will be his direct contact.
Kristen knows she will only be able to resist Vincent for so long. Vincent is a very persistent man and pursues her until she finally gives in to a date. What a date it was. He whisks her away on a private jet to St. Thomas for some surfing and fun. The sexual tension continues to build. Things between Kristen and Vincent quickly heat up. All she can think about is being with Vincent. She felt safe around him and she needs to feel that again. Will Vincent be able to protect her from her past?
Will her heart be safe with him? On to Secret Surrender to find out. View all 12 comments. Jun 22, PBW rated it liked it.

I never had much luck with books which feature an unattainable billionaire for a hero. I can only count with one hand the books where this trope worked for me. Fortunately, Priscilla West's Forbidden Surrender was one of those that worked for me. First of all, the heroine here wasn't a doormat whose only accomplishment was landing the hero, in spite of being awkward and shy. Here, the heroine, Kristen is an accomplished wealth management analyst who met our hero, Vincent, when her com 3.
Here, the heroine, Kristen is an accomplished wealth management analyst who met our hero, Vincent, when her company sent her to land Vincent as a client. Vincent Sorenson is a billionaire. But he's not just run-of-the-mill billionaire.
He's a surfer and an adrenaline junkie and he wants Kristen bad. He's got a reputation to go with his billions and a very busy lifestyle. Meaning, there's no room for a relationship in his life.
But when Kristen and Vincent got together, their chemistry was strong and their connection was undeniable. This book, being the first in the series, didn't really get in depth into each character. But we did know from reading this book that Kristen was in an abusive relationship before and that Vincent was determined to protect her from that. The series is just warming up, so I'm really excited to read more of Kristen and Vincent's story.
Jan 15, Carolina rated it really liked it Shelves: I loved! Since the first page, that I couldn't stop reading Is not an unusual story, but for me, It had something really different that made me keep going. If i forgot, while i was reading, the world, it means the book was it She has a important client, that will define her ladder, or not.
That's when you meet Vincent I knew I would love him! D He's a CEO and billionaire, and for balance things I loved all the sex scenes! I loved when he talked dirty A LOT!! Honestly, I didn't gave 5 stars because I needed more for this book. Was too short for me. I needed to know a little bit more before I went to the next book.
Besides that,I think it was wonderful, and like I said, Mrs. West was able to drag me to "their" world, in a blink of an eye. Jul 27, Michelle rated it it was ok. Kristen is working in wealth management and is eager to land the account of billionaire Vincent, but everything goes wrong during their initial meeting, but she seems to have made a lasting impression on the thrill seeker as he is bound and determined to turn business into pleasure.
The start of this was fun. I liked the initial encounter between these two, I love a first meet that stands out, and this certainly had that. Now I have to disclaim that this review is coming after finishing the series, so the praise I was originally holding onto, well that left me after finishing book three and now looking back at book one, well — so not over my feels on book three to really see book one the same way.
So I can say my first impression was a 3. But because of book three see review for details the overall rating is a 1. View 2 comments. Oct 20, Wendy'sThoughts rated it liked it. I had seen the trilogy covers on NetGalley as most requested and thought I would give it a go What we had here was the uber rich, unconventional CEO and the meeting of a young woman who works in finance management. CEO needs guidance with his new found fortune and has reached out to the firm where she works to present their ideas for him.
He has bids out with other firms as well. There is a boss who is an arrogant idiot guiding this presentation; he underestimates our gal's abilities. When it looks like the proposal is about to tank, he throws it to our gal and she saves the day She gathers herself and proceeds to do everything right with the presentation.
During this time, sexy CEO is eyeing her and she is feeling it all over. Needless to say, both are turned on. This exchange between them is the start of the whole tale. She holds him off but finally allows a date with him. He proves to be the itch for her ache and ends there.
Each character has their own secrets and they will be revealed at the right time. I will say the tone of the sexy times is right on and for a leading book one of the series, it caught your attention.
If you like the Alpha, uber sexy man coupled with a woman who can push back a bit, then this series may be for you. A gifted copy was provided by Blackbird Publishing via NetGalley for an honest review.

Jul 30, Candace rated it liked it Shelves: The two meet when Kristen is sent with her boos to woo the self-made billionaire, on behalf of the investment firm she works for. It seems that the only thing that Vincent is interested in is Kristen.
Ultimately, he decides to do business with her firm, with the stipulation that she serves as his point of contact. Initially, Vincent comes across as a manwhore that is only interested in the challenge of getting Kristen into bed. When that doesn't turn out to be as easy as he'd anticipated, he becomes even more appealing.
He transitions from a playboy into a protective boyfriend in the blink of an eye. This first book ends rather abruptly. However, I wasn't too surprised, having gone into this book knowing it was the first of many in the series. I will be jumping right into the next book right away, as I'm curious to see what the future has in store for these two, especially with Kristen's ex lurking in the shadows. Overall, I found this to be a light, comical and entertaining read.
It's predictable and similar to many other "girl meets billionaire" stories out there, but I found this one to be better than most in that sub-genre. I give it 3 stars!
I'm just gonna make this a short review. It's an enjoyable, guilty-pleasure read. The romance is great, not really intense and a bit cliche. What's not to like a hot surfer CEO?
Vincent Sorenson is a great male lead. He is persistent but not possessive. Such a sweet, caring, sexy guy. As for the female lead, Kristen Daly , she's a sweetheart with a mysterious past. I'm actually curious about it but I need to see more of her story. Her character was a little flat to me. That's why I couldn't really feel much chemistry between them. I hope the next one will be more intense.
I honestly didn't think I was going to like this book because the whole time I was saying to myself Vincent is instantly attracted to Kristen especially when she trips during the meeting and finds nipple rings and just has to squeeze his nipple! Vincent tries everything to get into Kristen pants but she deflects him at every turn He agrees to go with Kristen's company as long as she is the point contact.
So Vincent woo's her and agrees to go slow with the relationship Well you are just gonna have to read the book on your own to find out what happens Oct 18, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: Kristen Daley works for a wealth management firm and is hoping to rise through the ranks and landing this new client may just be her ticket; her boss and her have prepped what seems like night and day.
To get Vincent Sorenson signed with them and it seems her boss had him pegged pretty well, he was dead on that this surfer turned Ceo and billionaire. Would take this meeting in shorts , a tee shirt and flip flops, their is no reason to believe the meeting will go south until it does. And her boss Kristen Daley works for a wealth management firm and is hoping to rise through the ranks and landing this new client may just be her ticket; her boss and her have prepped what seems like night and day.
And her boss leaves her holding the bag, so Kristen picks up the proverbial bat and swings , that is until she trips straight into this sexy hunks chest and can not resist tweeting his nipple ring, what a way to send this meeting further south. Stressed and dissapointed after their meeting she heads back to the hotel and her Bff to head out for some down time, hitting the beach, and the bars in South Africa.
Fate intervenes and actually puts the very hot Vincent Sorenson in her path again, and then puts her I the middle of a very unconventional business meeting he is conducting at a bar no less, but her help earns her another shot at managing his wealth, but trying to avoid the overwhelming heat between them is getting harder. A week later and back home in the states Vincent Sorenson is ready to sign on , but he has requirements, that Kristen be his wealth manager and to spite her resistance to the stipulation she agrees , it is either she manages his funds or they do not get his business, but guilt really rides her back when the deal is sealed with one hell of a hot , runaway kiss!
Working with Thus billionaire playboy is going to be challenging especially with the chemistry between them and his effect on her,meristem will finally give in and go on one date with him and boy.
What a date! I want a Vincent to fly me to St Thomas for the day! Kristen 's resistance is crumbling and when these two finally have sex, well off the charts but she still has fears of why he would even be intrested in her, what with all his traveling and the surf bunnies throwing themselves at him and now to add to that trouble from her past has come calling. Kristen is surprised however that Vincent is supportive and protective when she thought her troubles would send him running.
However Vincent is making it clear that he wants a relationship. This is the first book in the trilogy and captured my interest so much that I had to read the remainder right away because frankly. I expected this relationship to go south and not because of Vincent , but because of Kristen to say her insecurities annoyed me just a bit! Overall though , I was hooked and you probably will be too!

Jan 24, pearl. This book was smokin' hot! I couldn't get enough! I read all three books back to back until late last night.
When my boss asked me why I looked so tired today, I giggled and thought of Vincent Sorenson. What I Enjoyed Vincent Sorenson. Good lord. Surfin' CEO with a hot bod and nipple rings? Yes, please! His cockiness and arrogance had me swooning so hard every time he'd pursue and be turned down by Kristen. Kristen Daley. Oh gosh, I pitied her! Poor girl never had a chance. I love how she tried to deny Vincent's advances for the sake of maintaining professionalism in her career, but it was only a matter of time before she dropped her panties.
Priscilla West's writing style. I always love it when an author's writing style is casual and flows well. This is true with Priscilla West.
I never had to read a sentence twice. The words were those I use myself. The characters' dialogue was realistic. This made it so easy for me to breeze through the books which was a relief because I had already stayed up way too late on a work night reading them. Memorable Quote Here it comes, I thought.

I shifted my naked body in his arms to face him and studied his stunning features. His dirty-blonde hair was disheveled. Traces of dry chocolate hung at the corner of his lip. I wiped it off with my finger and sucked the pad. His lips curved up lazily. Had I fallen asleep with him inside me? He yawned like a lion waking from slumber.
There were long red streaks marking his golden skin. I gasped and began lightly massaging around the wounds, hoping it would help with the pain. He was almost too good to be true.
