Book Review: Conquer Your Love by J.C. Reed

Conquer Your Love
Author: J.C. Reed
Publish Date: 11 June 2013

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, rich, 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.

My review

Well, after reading the first book in this series, Surrender Your Love, I was very eager for this book and to continue Jett and Brooke's story. I was not disappointed at all!

In the previous book, Jett broke Brooke's heart and betrayed her trust. Brooke flees to Italy with her best friend, Sylvie, to mend her heart and move on. Unfortunately for her, it's not that easy and Jett makes an unwelcome return to her life. But this time he's determined to win Brooke back, and he's not going to lose her without a fight *swoon*. As Brooke battles with her conflicting feelings about Jett, the secrets behind the Italian estate she is set to inherit start to become revealed, with dangerous consequences.

I was so impressed with Brooke in this book! She's so determined in the beginning to heal and move on, even though she still loved him. She still feels the same insane attraction to Jett, but she doesn't trust him and at first can't forgive him. As secrets from the past come to light, and Jett reveals more of himself, Brooke's defenses are lowered. I loved Brooke even more in this book, because of the strength she has in the face of Jett's betrayal and reappearance in her life.

Jett, ah Jett. First I would like to say that I want my own rich, domineering, sexy as sin man in my life! Then I will say that Jett did it again, I just love him! His motives and more of his past is revealed in this story which gives him more depth, and just roused my curiosity even more! I'm hoping in the third book we get an even closer look at his mysterious past. Jett just melted me.
"For you I'd conquer anything, everything, anytime."

This book just made me happy! Brooke and Jett gradually conquer the issues between them and the secrets from the previous book start to be unveiled. There's danger elements that give the book great pacing, and grab onto you, so you can't put it down. 
The ending made me ridiculously happy, and left my curiosity about the Lucazzone estate greater than ever. I can't wait for book 3, Treasure Your Love! This is an emotional, sexy and suspenseful read that will leave you desperate for more...and for more Jett!
