Originally released as a short story (35 pages) I was ecstatic when then author re-released the story as a full length book, letting us know what happens after the short story ended and Penny returns to England from her vacation. Even better to know was that the author re-released the short story and the sequel in one book Smile 2) Distractions. I liked the premise of this story and loved how Ty couldn’t keep focused on his “mission” on hand as he was so distracted by Penny. Penny also finding Ty irresistible was a plus, and I couldn’t wait to see what ensued.3) James – O. M. to the G.! You are not going to believe how James is thrown into the mix in the sequel. *le gasp* I loved it! Winking smile What I didn’t like about Stockholm Surrender:1) I’m a sucker for romance, and I really wanted this book to be about how Penny and Ty ended up falling in love. But I couldn’t help feeling as the story progressed that Ty was just using Penny to get James out of jail. Ty would withhold sex and punish Penny whenever things went wrong. Penny also comes across as a bit desperate.Ty lost me somewhere in the book, and I just couldn’t get on board with him no matter what he said he was feeling for Penny, because his actions didn’t show his words to me.But since Stockholm Surrender does have a happy ending (*le pants*) I put this aside and did enjoy the story despite this. http://readourlipsblog.blogspot.com/2013/01/review-stockholm-surrender-by-lily.html#more
