Even the title intrigued me! Hi folks, I’m here this week giving a short review of a.c. Mason’s latest novella, Surrendering to His Mrs. Right. I’ve read a.c. Mason for a few years now and admit that from the start, her work has captivated me. I’ve read a lot of books and rarely find myself taken away with characters and plot the way I am when reading (and even afterward) Ms. Mason’s works. In fact, I’d never tell her this because I fear what any author would do with too much ego, but I think she’s a plotting genius (shh!).
Surrendering to His Mrs. Right was one of those short reads that had me engrossed from the first page and I fought to put this book down. This novella is actually the prequel to Surrendering to the Right Man, the first book in the Soul Food Diner series. Throughout this novella, a.c. Mason draws us in by spinning a web around three main characters, Indy Kent, Liam Boyd and Tim Boyd.
Brothers Tim and Liam Boyd have known Indy for years. After all, Indy is Liam’s best friend… who wants a little more than just a friendship… until now. Now the tables are turned. Liam has sowed his oats so to speak and realizes he may want a deeper relationship with Indy. Indy, however, is still licking her wounds and not quite ready to forgive his sleeping around and jerk-like ways. Unexpectedly, and to my glee, Tim Boyd steps onto the stage and creates a bit of a love triangle (you can check out their recent character interview here). Admittedly, Tim Boyd makes this story for me. At first, he comes across as your overachiever good guy, but as the story unravels, we learn more about this good guy and his intentions to win Indy’s heart (I’m a complete sucker for the underdogs in these stories). Indy is clearly torn between the two brothers as it seems one has her heart and the other her mind.
Surrendering to His Mrs. Right is a tease of a novella that bit by bit feeds us intrigue, steamy scenes and the start of a great series. I have only two words for a.c. Mason after reading Surrendering to His Mrs. Right and its sequel, Surrendering to the Right Man: more please!
Oh and for those of you interested in a.c. Mason’s Blurb for Surrendering to His Mrs. Right:
When Tim Boyd is asked to pick up Indy Kent a few days before Christmas, his interest in his brother Liam’s best friend is all tied up in knots. And for once in his life he’s unwilling to deny himself for the sake of his family.
Indy Kent comes home for the holidays heartbroken at the knowledge that her best friend, Liam, is finally serious about another woman. But she finds comfort and a spark with Tim.
To Tim’s surprise, Indy seems to welcome the chance to spend time with him. Soon, something more is brewing…that is, until Liam returns.
New Year’s sends Tim, Indy and Liam into a tailspin that will alter them forever, and their lives will hang in the balance…
