Product Description

Product Description

Kingston “King” James is THE male supermodel. He’s at the top of his game, yet he’s bored. Money and fame come easy, women even easier — until her.

She’s everything he thought never existed…

For Phoenix Ryan every day is a reminder of heartache, of all the agony that poisons her soul. She’ll go to any length to appear strong, including convincing herself that she’s actually living — until him.

He’s everything she can’t stand…

As their lives relentlessly cross will they give in? Will they Relinquish?

This is Book One in the Embrace series. It can be read as a standalone with an HEA and is told in dual POV. Due to mature subject matter, strong sexual content and coarse language this book is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

4.0 out of 5 stars it hurt so good though. The storyline was intriguing 9 July 2015
By TAMMI - Published on

"Her fire, it burns so deep and bright--I can't help but surrender to it, begging for her to engulf me in her flames."

I am still on emotional overload from reading this book. The sexual chemistry will seriously leave you breathless and your panties drenched. It's freaking HOT! The banter is hilarious, I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt with it. Man, it hurt so good though. The storyline was intriguing, I was glued to the pages and could not put this baby down! I was reading at work, in between homework, bathroom breaks and during phone conversations! Yes, I became that girl and I will own it! The characters were very well developed, pace was spot-on and it was jam-packed with suspense. However, it was a touch of too much inner dialogue at some points.

"She thinks she needs a knight to battle the past, her fire-breathing dragon, but a phoenix is unique and immortal--just as the Phoenix that stands before me. Her beauty burns bright and vibrant."

I still cannot believe this is a debut, I liked her writing style and I absolutely adore these characters. It was so much fun to read, I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good time, a sexy man with a dirty mouth and writing that will reach out and smack you in the face with feelings. King is all ego and smart ass all the time. I love it and I absolutely love these two together. They are so hot and cold and oh-so-right you can't help but fall head over heels for them. As much fun as this story is, it is one hell of a roller coaster of emotions. There's a major twist, I am talking the mother of all twists that p'd me off for about ten seconds, but I still finished with a smile a mile long. These two are frustrating as hell. They will have you shaking your head as you laugh your butt off, then pulling your hair out in the same breath. You just keep going back for more and as you're tiptoeing around the edge, everything is pulled out from under you and it's an endless free fall. Don't worry you will be back on solid ground...sort of ;)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected... 22 July 2015
By Book Babe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
We meet King with last night’s regret. I tend to have a problem getting into romances where the opening scene depicts the H with some floozy even if he is being a jerk so maybe that led me down the road to meh early on.

King is plain cocky and conceited so his POV chapters, while colorfully written, didn’t make him book boyfriend material for me. His initial and subsequent meetings with Phoenix felt abrasive, and I honestly didn’t feel their connection. In the long run I suppose that was good that I didn’t get too into it because what actually unfolds is a little different.

I’ll leave it at that to avoid spoilers. Let’s just say that the twist ending in this book felt rather strange. It was more like something you’d find on a daytime soap opera than in most contemporary romances. If you like those types of crazy plot twists, then you’ll enjoy this, but if you prefer something a little more firmly rooted in “reality,” than it will disappoint. I'm not saying it's a bad story or that it doesn't have it merits, but it's not what I was expecting from the blurb.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! 15 July 2015
By Amazeballs Book Addicts - Published on

I love reading books by new authors because I have no exceptions going into the book. Reading a book from a new author is like getting a wrapped present, you don't know what's inside but you hope it's good. Relinquish is a very good present.

In the beginning Kingston come off as kind of a jerk. He's a sexy model and he can get any woman he wants. He doesn't do relationships but he doesn't have to he has woman falling at his feet. He comes from a big family and all his brother are pretty entertaining.

Phoenix is a bar owner. She has had a rough past. She keeps herself closed off and is barley living. Her friend Tatum and Mav are great and look out for her. Kingston is definitely not the type of guy she is looking for but when their paths cross a few time there are sparks.

There is a crazy twist towards the end of the book that had me questioning everything I read. Relinquish is an awesome read, you won't be disappointed.

***ARC given for honest review**

Fantastic debut novel SE Dean and I can't wait to read more.

Kingston James is the top supermodel of his time. Everything comes easy for him. He is a player and doesn't believe in relationships. Well that is until he meets sassy bar owner Phoenix Ryan. She totally blows him away. He can't think about nobody else. It doesn't help that that every where he goes, he keeps running into her. She has his head in a total spin..

The chemistry between Kington and Phoenix is off the charts.The antics between both characters and side characters had me laughing out loud. I loved Tate, Mav, Cam, Holt and Jagger, so funny.

Will they give into each other? Will Kingston change his ways?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for me 22 July 2015
By Sandoval - Published on

I got to 30%, and couldn't go any further. It's full of rambling and trains of thought that don't relate to the story, and are distracting. Plus all the characters are constantly yelling. I think there are one or more exclamation mark on every page. It's full of over kill descriptions, and unnecessary babble. At this point, I don't get the author's point of the story, not much is tying together, no cohesion. I'll give credit for the effort, but this story could've benefited from a good editor, and I feel like it wasn't worth the price I paid on Amazon.
