“Surrender” Military Billionaire BWWM Romance: (The Thorne Boys) is by author Serenity Paz.
This was a very short story of a woman seeking ‘the one’ and a man just trying to find his HEA.
Michelle and Ben…..
Michelle is a beautiful, lonely African-American woman. She is well-educated having received a Master’s degree from a prominent Ivy League school. Michelle resides in Manhattan and spends her days working as a pre-school teacher. Lately Michelle has been putting quite a bit of time and effort in on-line dating in the hopes she’ll find the kind of unconditional love that her parents had. So far she hasn’t had any luck. In fact her recent dates are questionable and to say that is an understatement. Then she meets a sexy, tattooed bartender named Ben and Michelle is hopeful that her luck might just change. I loved Ben! He was amazing. Definitely too good to be true. Given that she is wary to have a one-night-stand with a man she just met, Michelle can’t ignore the strong connection she feels to Ben.
This is an instant-love romance. For Ben it was love at first sight. However, Michelle took longer to convince. Truth is I struggled to like Michelle. She was flighty, insecure, indecisive and somewhat a snob. For someone so focused on finding love,(when it was right in front of her) instead of embracing it, she was judgmental and accusatory. I felt that Michelle was prejudice and judgmental against Ben’s occupation as a bartender AND because he was taking medicine for (view spoiler) a disorder. Oh, and I HATED the fact that she thought it was okay to snoop in the cabinets of Ben’s personal bathroom. His medication kept his issue under control and he hadn’t had any set backs since going on it, years prior, when he was honorably discharged from the military. I mean, who does that? I thought is was brash and nervy of her to invade his privacy that way. It just seemed that for someone as educated as Michelle, she was immediate to judge. The way she ran off after that had me sad for Ben. It was just inconsiderate and mean. Thoughtless. I never understood what Ben saw in Michelle that he thought was so special.
Put aside the fact I didn’t like Michelle much, the rest of the book was sexy and sweet. Ben was such a romantic and a true gentleman. I really wish we had his POV. It would have gone a long way in me giving a better rating. I hate not being inside bot H/h’s minds. I need to know what they are thinking, their real feelings. Oh, by the way, it turned out that Ben was extremely wealthy. He was a great hero and I just couldn’t understand how he was still single.
Would I read more from this author? Yes. I like the fact her couples are interracial. I like reading that everyone can find love regardless of stereotypes.
