Seduction and Surrender
Reckless #2
By: C.C. Gibbs
Releasing March 1, 2016


From the peaks of erotic ecstasy–to the point of no return . . .

Power. Passion. Pleasure beyond imagining. Billionaire playboy Rafe Contini offers all this–and more–to the beautiful Nicole Parrish, a young American traveler with a taste for adventure that matches his own. From the private yachts of Monte Carlo to the palatial estates of Geneva to the glittering penthouses of Bangkok, Rafe has shown her a world of unimaginable sensual delights. Now, he is ready to take her to the next daring level. Of danger. Of desire. Of deliciously erotic self-discovery.

Nicole has never known a man as sexy, as strong–or as commanding–as Rafe Contini. Night after steamy night, he turns up the heat, tests her boundaries, and pushes the limits of her body and soul to the point of sweetest agony. But when this masterful lover sweeps her away to a secluded island getaway–where anything can and will happen–Nicole must decide just how far she wants to take this game. And just how much she can bend Rafe’s rules . . .

He slowly exhaled, nodded, then sat down on the bed and touched her cheek with his fingertips. “It’s always more complicated with you. Raw, urgent. It freaks me out, that’s all.” He smiled and his voice softened. “So first, how about we work on your idea of foreplay, then we’ll practice mine.”

He was, she thought, beautiful beyond belief. Reaching up, she took his face in her hands and drew him down.

Leaning forward, he wondered how life suddenly could change so every kiss became incalculably meaningful. He’d never done much kissing. It was too personal or maybe too clichéd for the games he’d played. And now strangely he felt like a poet, wanting to leave a record to the world of each, tender, passionate, heart-stopping kiss.

She kissed him sweetly, lightly, brushing his lower lip with the tip of her tongue.

He angled his head, meeting the fullness of her mouth with the barest whisper of pressure.

Then she gave a low groan, slid her fingers through his slicked-back hair, hauled him closer, and shoved her tongue into his mouth—forcing the pace.

And in case he hadn’t noticed, she hissed, “Hurry, hurry.”

“Yes, ma’am,” he said, half-smiling, thinking maybe soul mates wasn’t just an empty phrase. In a smooth, lithe ripple of biceps muscles and upper body strength, he swung between her legs, positioned his cock in the slick crease of her pussy, and pushed in smoothly. She was tight. He was big. A perfect fit when it came to flame-hot sensation.

He glided into her lush heat slowly, deliberately, her body yielding by exquisite degrees until he was fully inside and she was gasping softly.

And die-of-pleasure bliss was torching their brains.

Then he slid his hands under her ass, dragged her hard into his stiff cock, felt the shudder slide up her spine, and, arching his back, whispered, “Open your legs wider. Wider.” Flexing his powerful thighs, he plunged forward, drove in hilt deep, and firmly lodged, murmured, velvety and low, “Feel that?”

She moaned long and low as pleasure flooded her pussy, curled her toes, set every nerve in her body alight. She even thought about answering him for a brief lucid moment before he gently rocked from side to side and bliss engulfed her and she purred instead.

Best of times, he thought. He was going to fuck her until he couldn’t move; that’s how good it was.

3.5KINK Review


I took the recommendation that Seduction and Surrender can be enjoyed as a standalone however it’s book #2 in the Reckless series.    This is a first for me.  I usually don’t jump into a series because it may leave you confuse.  Please read Power and Possession first to fully enjoy Rafe and Nicole’s story.

Rafe Contini is gorgeous alpha CEO billionaire of Contini Pharmaceuticals. Nicole, a grad student is his girlfriend, which is uncommon for the ultimate playboy.

The story takes place on a secluded island where Rafe and Nicole are taking refuge from an enemy, Zou Yao, who tried to destroy Rafe’s company.  He brings Nicole along with him that proves to be a sexy distraction.

It has danger, intrigue, suspense and scorching hott sex thrown into the mix. Nicole is no damsel in distress, in or out of the bedroom.  This trait leads to a power struggle in the bedroom.  A characteristic I love to see when dealing with uber sexy alphas who are used to getting what they want.

I read the preview of Power and Possession, Book #1 that tells the story of how Rafe and Nicole meet.  It was so sexy and enough to peek my interest to read Book #1, Power and Possession.  I will be able to fully enjoy the story I just finished.

In closing, Seduction and Surrender was a good story. I want it to be a great story because I love all things sexy alpha billionaires.  So, to make this an awesome story to enjoy, please read Book #1, Power and Possession.
