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, handsome, 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.

Excitement was an understatement when I finally received my ARC copy. I've been dying to read what happened to Brooke and Jett right after I'm done with the last page of Surrender Your Love. Finally! Finally! I had my hands on Conquer Your Love and OMG! Was it worth the wait?! Hell yes!

From the cover right down to the last page - I was hooked.

The story started just right after Brooke left Jett after what she discovered. She packed her suitcase, put off her phone and flown to Bellagio with her Sylvie. She decided that she should move on. Trusting Jett was a mistake after he betrayed her. But forgetting and forgiving Jett would be harder than she expected especially when he finally found her and decided that he wants her back. 

Jett Mayfield on the other hand...

He may be an ass in not being honest with Brooke, but he's making up for it. Okay, he may have to work to get on her good graces again, but he's willing to do it. He even flew straight to Bellagio to find her. He's still the super-alpha male we all loved in Surrender Your Love. He cares about her and willing to risk his life for her. Jett is finally beginning to open up to Brooke, not totally, but there's progress. How can she say no when one smile, one look from Jett made her defenses weak?

Oh that he is, baby. 

Why I love this book more than the first one?
Don't get me wrong, I love the first book. But the second book holds the title of my favorite among the series (or until the 3rd book comes along).

Who doesn't love the setting?
Bellagio, Italy! Just the perfect place to rekindle old flames. 

More intense, steamy love scenes... 

(make-up sex are indeed the best, even in writing.)

JC Reed has more to offer in this book than an amazing love story & hot steamy scenes. I love the mystery that surrounds the Luccazone Mansion and Alessandro, as well as the old man's relationship to Jett's father. The mansion may not be the only thing that Brooke is inheriting once Alessandro is dead, but all the secrets that may be life-threatening to both Brooke and Jett. 

The thrill of the chase, the adrenaline rush...

There is no boring or dull moment in this book, over 300 pages and yet I was done in one sitting. I'm sure like me, you will be hooked to and will have to demand that the third book be released right away. Yes, this is a trilogy. But unlike the first book, I like the ending of Conquer Your Love better. Now, I just couldn't wait for them to have their HEA. (Expected Date of Publication is September 2013 - Can I have this book for my birthday???)

“The hardest part was acknowledging I might never see you again. Realizing how much you mean to me and how much I'd miss your pretty face every morning and night. Realizing all the things I didn't do with you and might never get a chance to. But I think most of the pain came from the realization that the time we spent together was not enough for me and I couldn't force you to feel the same.”  
“Sweetie, love's meant to be shared. Maybe it won't last forever. But who cares? Every story has an ending. You can't stop after one chapter just because you don't know how it ends. If you love him, you should at least give it a chance. I think a life without sharing love is hell in itself. What's worse than loss?”
