Book Tour: Book Review: Submit

Submit copy

Welcome to the tour for Submit by Jillian D. Wray. Read on for more details and treat yourself to the Nothing Lasts Forever trilogy which is available now!


Submit (Nothing Lasts Forever #1) 
  Publication Date: July 24, 2023 
  Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Romance 
  Tropes: Age Gap Broody Possessive Alpha Fated Mates/ Star Crossed Lovers Tasteful Spice 

 When I first met Willem, he swept me off my feet. I was pursued. Adored. 

 But over time, I began to give in to all of Will’s desires and demands and lost sight of who I was. Whenever I felt like I could finally break free… he would find a way to reel me back in. 

 That’s how I ended up here, in Aruba. With a fiancĂ© who’s never around and a lonely, solitary existence filled with cooking meals and keeping house. 

 Meeting Casper was a pleasant surprise. With his brilliant green eyes, tanned skin, and brooding demeanor, I find myself irresistibly drawn into his orbit again and again. Without even trying, he makes me feel seen for the first time in years. 

 Maybe it’s the way he corrects my stance on the kite board. Maybe it’s the side glances he thinks I don’t catch. But the more time I spend with him, the more closed-off he becomes – and the more I want to break through his tough exterior. 

 When Will and I’s relationship takes a turn for the worse, Casper helps me escape my prison. But I never expected the secrets that would be exposed… or the danger that’s about to come for us both. 

 In over my head, I quickly realize that at least one more time, I will have to submit to someone else’s control.

I received Submit in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by R&R Book Tours. 

In the beginning everything was perfect but her workaholic fiancee is never around forcing Libby to spend a lot of her time alone. When the opportunity presents itself they up and move to Aruba which starts a new adventure but she ends up being alone. When she decides to take up kite surfing she meets a man who changes everything. As secrets are uncovered she learns that things aren't always as they appear. 

I like Libby she's just a sweetheart she stuck it out for so long trying to make it work with Will but eventually she accepted the fact that it wasn't going to work. I love Casper he's such a great character to complement Libby and just what she needs too. They have this steamy sweet chemistry that just works and is sizzling. I wasn't a fan of Will but what can you expect he's not the right guy. 

I ended up reading Submit over the course of two days it would have been quicker but real life seemed to get in the way but I kept picking it up every chance I could. I really like that the story took place in Aruba which brings a whole new world of the cartel's and with the dark Dutch elements I found the concept fascinating. I love a darker steamy romance and Submit has a perfect mix of both with a sprinkling a action 

This is my first book by the author and I'm hooked on her writing style just flows it's easy to get swept up into the story. Submit has great characters and a captivating story that captures the heart as well as the imagination. I truly enjoyed every moment of the book it kept me on the edge of my seat till the very end. I can't wait to continue Libby and Caspers story as it continues in the next book. 

About the Author
 Jillian has worked in the healthcare industry for over 10 years. With no formal education in creative writing, she sat down one night during the pandemic to give her mind a break from facts and sterile objectivity. In doing so, she discovered a love for losing herself in a story all her own. Even though she continues to work her “regular” job, she’s always planning, plotting, and scheming for ways to make her next characters fall in love. 

 Her characters are inspired by people she has met over the years and their stories could happen to anyone. Realistic, flirty, quick reads are what you’ll get when you crack open one of her novels. 

 When she isn’t working or writing, you can find her in her garden, on a plane, or 50ft below the surface of the ocean breathing bubbles and chasing fish. She currently resides in North Carolina with her husband and three stepkids.
