Over the past few years Carol Lynne's writing has continued to strive as she tackles current hard hitting issues, be it mental disabilities, abuse or men falling in love. Seb's Surrender keeps up with her theme and her talent shines through. This book is part of a series and while some of the characters are from previous books in the Men in Love and the Bodyguards in Love series it is not necessary to read all of those to enjoy this book. Since those are great series though you might not be able to resist if you like Male/Male themed stories.

After a lifetime of abuse, Jared Grant was rescued by Brier Blackstone and taken to one of the safest places he knew, the bodyguard dormitory of the Three Partners Protection Agency. For the first time, Jared is surrounded by men whose job it is to protect, not hurt him.

One of his protectors, Sebastian James, knows a little something about abuse. Once a victim of abuse before he and his brother were taken from an abusive household and put into separate foster homes, Seb learned to harden his heart as a way of survival. Now, the soft spoken and scared Jared threatens the shell Seb spent years fortifying.

When Jared’s tormentor threatens him from jail, it’s up to Seb and the rest of the bodyguards to keep Jared safe until he can testify at his abuser’s trial. However, the close contact might be more than Seb’s hard shell can withstand.
