Gr’s Summary

Meeting Jett was like bad luck. Dangerous. Unpredictable. And better avoided. In his game, the stakes are high. But are they worth the risk?

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, finds forgetting is hard, but forgiving is harder. When the man she trusted, betrayed her, the only way to forget is to move on. Brooke is determined to start a new life, until she meets him again: the green-eyed, sexy as sin, six foot two sex god. The man who played dirty. The man who played her.

Sexy, rich, and arrogant Jett Mayfield knows he has made mistakes. He could have any other woman, and yet it’s Brooke he wants. When second chances collide with secrets and Brooke is threatened by the past, Jett is determined to protect her. She accepts his help unwillingly because she needs him but she wants to play his game on her own terms. And she has no intention to forgive or let him back into her bed.

When the man she is supposed to hate is the one she should trust, will he conquer her…or lose her forever?

A woman who can’t forgive.
A man who has made mistakes.
Two lives that are about to cross again and more secrets laid bare.

The Way I See It 

Dear Jett, I love you... ;)  Brooke!!  Your Back!!  Okay, now that my hello’s are out of the way, I’d like to say, I LOVED Conquer Your Love!  This was such a fun read...One sitting you say?  Yep!  Is it a page turner Ria?  Yep.  How about the steam?  Extra HAWT!  New element alert!  Mystery?  Ya, I’m dying to find out who did it, in what room, with what instrument. ;)  Okay, it wasn’t like that, but something is definitely amiss, and I’m insanely curious!  Cliffhanger?  No, no rest at ease.  I will say the ending sealed my love for Jett, and it had me balling.  Happy tears ofc.  Ms. Reed has created a sensational hit with this one!!  I’m dying already to see what happens next :)

C-hoice, She walked away, and because of his love, he let her.
O-pportunity, not one accustomed to losing, Jet will seek out a second chance.
N-eed, being without one and other, is like being without air or water.
Quandary, can she follow her heart and her desires?  Will he betray her again?  Brooke has to make a complex decision.
U-nwavering, a force of nature, Jett’s persistence will prove to Brooke how sincere he is.
E-xplosive, there is no denying these two were meant for each other.  Electricity shoots off of the pages!
R-eunion, inevitable their love and passion too great, nothing can keep them apart, especially when Jett is fighting for it.

Y-outh gone, life ending, secrets guarded...His Heiress, in Danger.  What could be worth soo much trouble and danger? 
O-bstinate, ensuring a promise he will not have his estate altered or sold, ever, even beyond death.
U-nnerving, a feeling, an attack, precious items lost, where does the truth reside?
R-evelation, shocking news stumbled on per chance, Brooke is at a crossroad in her life.  The severity of the situation leaves her bare and open, to be crushed by Jett.

L-ove, unplanned, but all encompassing nonetheless. Together they will face what life throws their way.
O-btained, freedom from her past, its time to look for a future.  Escaped secrets for now, they will lay where they are, dormant.
V-antage, a loving couple will embrace their second chance with fervor, and every one will see how perfect they are.
E-bullient, Brooke makes Jett the happiest he has ever been in his life.

Did someone say Italy? I loved the setting.  I felt like it was me walking through the historical settings, and into the chapel. The beauty I envisioned!  Breathtaking.  The supporting cast was a HIT!  Loved Brooke and Jett’s friends, they were excellent compliments for their characters!  For a HIGHLY entertaining, HIGHLY addictive, HIGHLY fun, and HIGLY sensual read, I HIGHLY recommend, Conquer Your Love!!!

My Fav’s

A fighter, Sex God, Resilient, Amazing, Bad boy mask, AMAZING, Hmmm what else can I say about my dreamy Jett... He grew up under really sad circumstances, none of which stopped him from becoming successful, sexy, and super all around swoon worthy!!  Jett isn’t perfect.  He makes mistakes, but he learns from them, and won’t stop until "she" knows exactly how he feels about her.  He is a loyal friend and generous lover...The steam was off the charts!

Can someone say total sweetheart?!  She has come a long way. I love her character development. She was hesitant at first, who wouldn’t be?  Honestly, I think her giving Jett another chance showcased her strength.  Putting your heart out there to get trampled isn’t easy.  Most people remain guarded and unwilling to let others in.  I admire Brooke for being able to let go of her pain and move on with her life.

My Fav Quotes

~Jett (Kindle LOC 1998)

“If you fell, I’d hold you.  If you were afraid, I’d wrap my arms around you and take away your fears.  I’d die to keep you safe, but more than anything I’d do whatever it takes to keep you by my side.  For you I’d conquer anything, everything, anytime.
