Review of Surrender by Angela Ford

Lauren Reynolds is widowed after an explosion in her husband’s warehouse. She believed he ran a legitimate business. The local police told her it was an accident. On the day of his funeral, there is a knock at her door to tell her different.

Narcotics Agent Brett Donovan has been investigating John Reynolds for the past several months. A drug cartel operation has been tracked out of John’s warehouse. As if that information wasn’t enough to digest, Agent Donovan warns her there was a hit assigned for both Mr. & Mrs. Reynolds.

Brett is assigned to protect the suburban widow. She may be gorgeous but his first impression of her tells him she’s a rich spoiled snob and he has to put up with her. Brett is good at his job. The first attempt on her life fails but Brett knows it’s only the beginning. He takes her into hiding. There’s definite attraction but there’s also secrets that surface as they continue to escape danger.

He lives for danger. She lives for new shoes at Saks. One night in a motel room with no-air-conditioning and a sexy naked agent captures their desire for one another. Will the tangled mess they’re weaved into and their secrets lead them back into tangled sheets? Is desire enough when they are from two different worlds? Or are they?


Surrender is a romantic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing until the very end.  Angela draws you into her story and the lives of her characters.  You feel like you are a part of the story and are living the lives of the characters.  As  the mystery unfolds and the characters face many obstacles, you will not want to put this book down until you find out what happens next.  Lauren and Brett are the perfect couple and from their very first meeting they clash.  Lauren just lost her husband and learns it was not an accident and Brett is an agent who has been on an assignment and was investigating her husband.  When the attempts on Lauren's life start, he is assigned to protect her.  Brett and Lauren go in hiding and along the way they discover a passion and love that they have never felt before.  Will Brett be able to discover the truth before its too late?  Will he be able to protect Lauren and discover who is behind the attempts on her life?  You will have to read the book to find out.

Angela Ford has become one of my favorite writers and I really enjoyed reading Surrender.  It was one of those books  you could not put down.  She is a master at romantic suspense and I absolutely love her writing.  Angela writes with such passion and love and her characters are so real and full of emotion.  I highly recommend you read Surrender and any books that Angela Ford has wrote.   You will not regret it.  I am looking forward to reading what she writes next.  5 stars
