Overall Grade: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
At the end of Fiona Cole’s Lovers, there was indeed an opportunity for more Jake and Jackson. Together, these two are $exy, swoony, and sweet. And Lovers was the “tip of the iceberg” for them. Fiona Cole surprised us all with more of Jake and Jackson’s story in the Love is Love is Love anthology. For this reader, I was sad that I didn’t get my hands on it. Yet, Cole surprised us in deciding to release that story as a novella entitled Surrender. The only disappointment about Surrender is the need for MORE Jake and Jackson.
In this novella, Jake wants to marry Jackson, but Jackson seems reticent to “tie the knot.” Unbeknownst to Jake, Jackson is overwhelmed by the cost of the wedding that Jake’s mom wants to plan. Once Jake realizes the issue, he is determined to get Jackson to the altar. Will it happen before the end of the book? Read Surrender to find out.
Fiona Cole’s Surrender is the type of quick read you can do in a couple of hours. It’s a nugget of fun and sultriness. Just like Lovers, Jake and Jackson are hot in the bedroom. There is one scene, in particular, that is fire on the page. This is the Fiona Cole that we have all come to love.
The only complaint I have about Surrender is I want more. I love Jake and Jackson together: they love each other deeply, they support each other, and they are $exual magic. However, I want to see them beyond their wedding, considering babies. If I was Cole, I would continue Jake and Jackson’s story until their end because these two steam up the page and cause you to swoon. If you loved Lovers, then you definitely want Surrender. It’s a great deal, a quick read, and a place to distract you from the troubles of our world. Jake and Jackson are everything you want them to be.
In love and romance,
