Review: Forbidden Surrender

Forbidden Surrender by Carole Mortimer
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This Plot is Just Too Crazy

FINAL DECISION: This plot was too crazy for me. The characters barely spent any time together before they were madly in love and the entire plot of Sara being in love with her twin’s fiance was not pleasant even though it worked out.

THE STORY: Sara Hamille, a model, comes to England after the death of her mother and stepfather. When people keep mistaking her for someone else, Sara discovers that she has a twin she never knew about. One of the people who keeps mistaking her for her twin is Dominic Thorne who mistakes Sara for his fiance. Sara discovers that the man she has fallen for belongs to her newly found sister.

OPINION: This plot is just insane. Unknown twins, lies, deceptions, and secrets all pervade this story. This book is so based on secrets and lies that I didn’t ever feel any connection with the characters. There are so many crazy situations that the characters are manipulated throughout the story. Then the resolution occurs so quickly that these characters never felt like they had anything real. This is instant attraction, instant lust, instant love. I couldn’t really understand what Sara and Dominic had between them — especially because Dominic spends most of the book engaged to Sara’s twin sister.

WORTH MENTIONING: This book was originally published as a category romance in the early 1980s.


STAR RATING: I give this book 2 stars.
