Reed Kauffman has never been with a man, but he’s about to act on that unfulfilled desire for the first time in his thirty-three years. He just beat out the competition, Quality Homes, by winning a contract for the family business to build more than a hundred housing units and after six weeks of flirting and dancing with each other, Reed is finally going to accept Dalton’s invitation.

Alan Dalton is a carpenter and one of the owners of Quality Homes. At the age of forty-three, he has an ex-wife and is the father of two college aged kids who don’t know he’s gay. Shortly after Reed surprises him by accepting his invitation, Dalton realizes he’ll be Reed’s first male lover and goes out of his way to take it slow and make him comfortable. After a night of passionate sex they both wake up the next morning wondering what happens now.

Surrendered Victory is a wonderful, sweet, sexy and emotional story of one man’s self-discovery and another man’s realization he may have found the one he’s willing to risk it all for. KC Kendricks has done a fantastic job and created two terrific characters you will like right from the start. Reed is a smart, sexy man whose confidence grows as the story progresses and Dalton is the perfect man anyone could hope to choose as their first lover. I quickly and easily found myself drawn into their story and caring about what happened to both of them. Surrendered Victory also has humorous moments, witty dialogue and a wonderful scene between Dalton and his son, Peter. This was the first book I’ve read by KC Kendricks and definitely won’t be the last. I strongly recommend this book to all fans of the m/m romance genre.
