Review: Sinful Surrender by Beverly Kendall

41250787From the back of the book:

Millicent “Missy” Armstrong is entering her third London Season, but not for lack of suitors. Since her debut three years ago, Missy has received twenty marriage proposals. But she is interested in only one man – her brother’s best friend, James Rutherford. As a child, Missy looked up to James. As a grown up, her admiration has blossomed into the longings of a beautiful, sensuous woman – and she won’t rest until James admits his love – and desire – for her…

James Rutherford rues the day he let his physical weakness get the better of him by kissing Missy. His best friend has made it clear that Missy is off limits, and though he’s avoided her for three years, he hasn’t forgotten the feel of her soft lips pressed against his – and it seems neither has she. for no matter how much James tries to discourage Missy, he keeps winding up in her arms, sharing heated caresses that promise the most delirious pleasure...

This book has been on my shelf since was released, but kept getting buried, and I’m mad at myself for letting it sit so long. I started this book around 11pm, thinking I would read a few chapters and then fall asleep. I stayed up until 3am reading. I couldn’t put it down and had to find out what was going to happen between Missy and James. This is an almost perfect romance. I could have done without James’ behavior. There were times he was downright mean to Missy “for her own good”. Missy is the kind of stubborn heroine that I love. She knew she was in love with James and no one was going to convince her otherwise – even James. These two take a very long and at times not-so-pleasant road to their happily ever after, but it was very satisfying for me when they got there. I’m hoping that we will get to read James’ friends Thomas and Alex’s stories in the future. Next time I won’t let Beverly Kendall’s book sit on my shelf for so long.

the book girl gives SINFUL SURRENDER a 4/5!
