He’s dangerous, sexy, and everything she wants…

Sierra hit it off with Hayden from the moment they met. The dangerously sexy, tattooed ex-SEAL is one of the best friends she’s ever had - and the main star in her wildest fantasies. But he doesn’t see her that way. And she’d die of embarrassment if he found out she was still a virgin.

And he’s about to make his claim…

But when an attacker targets Sierra, Hayden’s protective instincts go into overdrive. With the attraction between them burning out of control, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her and convince her they’re meant to be together.

DONT BLINK OR ITS OVER!

Somehow I didn't know this book was all of 1 hour and a half, but in that short time, it was jam packed with action, humor, and hot lusty sex! It was good. For such a short story, the plot was sensible and kept me listening. If I'm being really honest, the hottie ex-Seal kept me glue to my headphones! I love a man that sees what he wants and goes for it! If the audio production was a bit better, I'd consider giving this 4-stars for sure. If this is on sale, totally worth it, otherwise, wait until there's a deal .

Awesome!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this book to my friends and family. I have read this book and also listened it in the audio version. I loved Hayden and Sierra's story, this book has it all romance, suspense, and very steamy.

What was one of the most memorable moments of First Surrender?

The most memorable moment of First Surrender was when Sierra got attacked at work. I loved how Hayden ran out to her and made sure that she was ok. I loved how Hayden finally admitted his feelings for Sierra.

Which scene was your favorite?

I had a couple favorite scene, the first one was when Sierra was looking for Hayden and she was told that he was on a date, she was upset when she saw Iris Christiansen, and Iris asked if she needed to kick Hayden's ass. I also loved when Hayden's brother told him to wait until next week to tell Sierra his feelings because there is a pool going around to when he finally admits it.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Suspense that is hot and steamy!

Any additional comments?

I loved Ryan Hudson's voice, I was able to listen and stay involved in the story. His voice is smooth and sexy and was very enjoyable to listen to. This is the first book in the Serafina: Sin City Series. It is a wonderful start to a fantastic series.

Short but entertaining.

This was a very short but pretty cute, sweet story concerning a ex navy seal and the young innocent girl he falls in love with. They both work for a casino and dance around what is between them for a time, that is, until her life is in danger from another employee that is obsessed with her and her virginity. He saves her life and things fall into place for the couple. Ryan Hudson gives an outstanding performance and delivers the right amount of emotion while he reads. All in all, it's a nice start for the series. Short and right to the point.

A great beginning for this series


This novella introduces us to a new series by Ms Reus that promises to be another winner.
The story belongs to Chef Sierra and Hayden, a Security Specialist in one of the most exclusive hotels in Vegas.
They have become friends and secretly have had feeling for each other, but it isn’t until Sierra is assaulted , that these feelings are revealed.
Suffice is to say, the author compacts in the novella a sexy, full of suspense, action and romance. One that will keep your interest throughout the story.
Looking forward to more stories in this series.
I was gifted the audible. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Wonderful read but too short!

I loved everything about this book. The characters are great. What I wish was that we had gone back a little and listened to some scenes with them when they were friends. Also why he was discharged from the military. I just needed a little more here. Otherwise great as always from this author.

Quick but good

It was a short story but was enjoyable. The characters are well developed and fun. It makes you want to listen to more of Katie Reus books. I have most of them and wait for more.
