I have to be honest, I was almost quick to dismiss this book. I’ve read a number of books with the same story line before, handsome billionaire meets beautiful young woman, yadda yadda, but I was still curious to see how this story will turn out. Before jumping into this series, I first read The Lessons which I had thoroughly enjoyed so I proceeded to read Determined.

Samantha Sharp was a beautiful woman, down to earth and hardworking. It was no surprise that she caught a certain devastatingly handsome man’s eye. His name was David Keith and he has no qualms being aggressive in pursuing her. He was not in her plans, but her attraction to him was impossible to dismiss or ignore and when they meet again the next night, she surrendered herself to him.

And so it began.

My first impression of Samantha was that she was nothing overtly special, except for her looks. I couldn’t find anything particular about why David would be so attracted to her. But as I continued to read on, I was wrong. We get to know more about her throughout the book as her and David’s relationship progressed.

But overall, while the book was a pleasant read, there was nothing in it that had evoked emotions from me. Not enough twists and turns but it did hold my interest.

His sister told me I was special. Jenna had been abnormally interested in our relationship since the get-go. And for good reason. Despite being unbelievably hot, rich, and powerful, her billionaire brother had always managed to avoid dating anyone seriously. I was quite the novelty in the Keith household.

My best friend told me I was lucky. But I had to remind myself this wasn’t luck. David Keith had pursued me like an animal hunting it’s meal. Manipulating events, practically stalking me at parties— but honestly I was just as obsessed.

We were addicted to each other and it felt so good.

Then I found out about her. And my entire world turned upside-down.

This book follows some time after the events of the first book. Samantha and David were reveling in their new relationship, more eager to learn about each other now that their feelings had started to run deeper, added to the lust that had been a consistent roaring fire immediately the minute their eyes met that fateful night. But when Samantha learns something significant about David’s past that he didn’t mention, she feels betrayed. In Determined to Love things start to get a bit more interesting…

I’ll leave it at that. 😉

I had always prided myself on managing them well. Then one night David Keith inserted himself into my life and everything changed. David was handsome, sexy, powerful.

I was addicted to him. And he was addicted to me.

So my priorities shifted, expanded— and I was more than fine with that. So what was the problem? Nothing except that dating a billionaire comes with… complications.

So this is where it all ends.

We were left with questions in our minds with the way book 2 was concluded. WHAT?! How? Why? Who? We get our answers in Determined to Win. I thought that this was a great ending to a first series from a new author. What started out as an okay-read turn into something more!

There were lots of twists in this installment that was missing from the first two books in the series, some that I didn’t even suspect! I guess the author has been holding back on us from the start, eh? 😉

To be honest this particular series isn’t my fancy since I’m so over the billionaire trope ages ago, but this author did a good job with holding my interest (as you can see, I can be a snob – lol) and I managed to get through the entire series in a short time.

I can tell as early as now that Ms Elizabeth Brown has more in store for us and I’d definitely keep a lookout for her future titles!
