Surrender

Reviewed by Kim Roller

Romance Western

Joan Johnston hits the mark with SURRENDER, weaving a tale of danger, heartache, and a family drama with love conquering all. SURRENDER sets a thrill ride that tugs on heartstrings throughout as Taylor and Bran fight for their lives both physically and emotionally.

Taylor Grayhawk and Brian Flynn are caught between their families because of a feud that their fathers have had for years. When they were teenagers, they dated and fell in love. Brian even makes up a nickname for Taylor: "Tag," because of her initials. But young love can be fleeting, and they break things off before they get too attached.

Taylor becomes a pilot who drops smokejumpers into fires, and unbeknownst to Taylor, Brian is the latest smokejumper on a new trip. Dangerous circumstances cause them to jump out of the plane, and they take shelter in a cave. Stranded and without resources, Taylor and Brian have to figure out a way to survive.

With their feuding families trying to find them, Taylor and Brian lean on each other for strength, confiding their fears and secrets to each other during their seclusion in the wild. But if they do survive the brutal wilderness, will they be able to survive their true feelings?

I'm looking forward to the next book in the Bitter Creek-Kings Brats series by Joan Johnston, who is an absolute favorite of mine. I can't wait to see how characters introduced in this book end up together. Great read!

SUMMARY

When a sudden tornado of flame from a raging forest fire snuffs out both engines of the Twin Otter being piloted by Taylor Grayhawk, she locks eyes with the last man on the plane: her longtime enemy and one-time lover, smoke jumper Brian Flynn. Grayhawk and Flynn can’t agree on anything—not even how to escape their desperate situation. Once they’re on the ground, the only shelter they can find leaves the adversaries trapped together— with no way out.

Injured and starving, Taylor and Brian struggle to survive, yet somehow the threat of imminent death reignites something deep and powerful between them. Feelings they thought long dead rise from the ashes, suddenly making them more than just allies in a life-or- death struggle against nature’s fury. A still greater challenge awaits when fate delivers them from harm and puts their rekindled love to its ultimate test: Surrender to each other, or part forever.
