I was lucky enough to be able to read an advanced copy of this book, and i have discovered a new author who i really enjoy. Jennifer Burrows transported me to Italy and though i have never been there i felt the heat of the summer, and the noise of the city squares. I felt for the pain Katherine was feeling, and the need to get away from life for a bit and to become detatched from her usual routines that appear to be stifling her existence. The dark and brooding Tony is a welcome addition to Katherine’s journey and he opens up her world to new feelings and experiences. The food described in the book, oh my god i am sure my mouth watered numerous times, and i now need to visit this country, it has always been on the bucket list of trips. But i just want to visit to experience the restaurants and wine like Katherine did, if i happen to come across a man like Tony i will not be disappointed. This book took me on my own little adventure from the comfort of my perfect reading space, and i could not be more happy to have read it. And as a little after thought this book finished in one of the most perfect cities in the world (in my opinion) i will not tell you which or where abouts in the city, as it will spoil the book. Surrender was a read that transports me away from the mundane to a world which is full of action, romance and exotic locations, thank you for that Jennifer Burrows.
