The most dangerous thing on Captain Olivia Wallace’s plane is her Italian employer’s new bodyguard. Nathan is just like all the other predators in the deep bush of South Africa: he’s powerfully intense, strikingly gorgeous, and completely lethal.
But Nathan isn’t who he pretends to be and she’s drawn to the decent man she sees inside, the one he claims doesn’t exist. Even as he risks everything he has to save her.
His actions put them on a collision-course with uncontrolled passion, but also dangerous violence, and its impact threatens to destroy so much more than just their lives
My 5 Star Review
Surrender by Karen Lawrence is a hot, hot book. Olivia is the private-pilot for a powerful, in not a legal way, and rich Italian family. She has always kept her head low and is looking forward to disappearing as soon as her contract is up. During one of her final flights has her flying her boss’s son and his body guard to Africa. Olivia soon finds herself attracted to the “Nathan”, who she later finds out is actually Ethan. Olivia can tell Ethan is just not your regular body guard. Little does Olivia know that she has happened got herself caught-up in a CIA operation which explains Ethan’s cover.
This book was full on suspense, sexual chemistry (Olivia and Ethan), and had an overall good storyline. I was immediately sucked into the book and couldn’t put it down. I definitely recommend this to someone who is looking for a steamy read that has a bit of suspense and intrigue intertwined.
