Overview

After finding herself out of luck and out of love, Patricia Jacobs has written off the male species. No one but her father has ever given her the love and devotion she knows she deserves, and she’s sick and tired of it. Until she collides, literally, with a man whose devastating smile and seductive charm that should be considered illegal, destroys her plans. He’s everything she’s ever dreamed of in a man: handsome, intelligent, successful, they share a love of cars and best of all; he looks at her like she’s his light in the dark. What more could a girl ask for?

Jonathon Bradshaw, destroyed by a past that has haunted his every waking moment for the last five years, isn’t looking for a serious relationship, until he meets Patricia. Sweet, saucy and as hot as the summer is long, Jon can’t deny the draw he has toward her. For the first time, he has hope. Determined to shake the ghosts of his past, Jon focuses on forging a future with Patti, but he’s always been a master at standing in his own way.

When Jon’s past refuses to be forgotten, will Patti be able to live with the truth about the man who’s stolen her heart?

    My Review:

    4.0 Star Review - SURRENDER TO LOVE

    I recommend this book.

    Patti is having the worst day until she meets Jon. She has a cheating boyfriend and gets fired. Jon is a man whore. But does that make him no-boyfriend material. When the person is the one you want to change the bad habits you have for them. Will Jon let the past come between them?

    I Would suggest reading the book in order even though you can read them as stand alone. I believe that reading them in order makes you understand the characters better.

    Can't wait for the next book.

    4 Solid Surrendering Stars! Heartfelt and Romantic. A Perfect Af

    4 Solid Surrendering Stars!
    Heartfelt and Romantic. A Perfect Afternoon Read! 

    The Review: 
    When I saw this read come up for review, I grabbed it as quick as I could because I knew without a doubt, I’d be in for a treat. As usual, J.C. Valentine did not disappoint!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Surrender To Love sucks you right in with an exciting opening and keeps you connected throughout the entire book. The characters were fun, the conflict was emotional and the story was sweet. This author hooked me with the first book in the series, Stranded, and with each book, the stories and character building get richer and the spice gets hotter. Yeah, I'm a fan!

    Characters/Story...
    Patti Jacobs has a bad habit of picking the wrong guy. Her past is riddled with players and cheaters and she’s had enough of men in general. But the night she meets Jon, something about him pulls her towards him even though their first meeting lets her see right from the start what kind of dating habits he has. Patti was an interesting character. She loves muscle cars which is something she got from her father. She loves the classics and she doesn’t mind getting dirty under the hood of her car. She rebuilt the GTO she drives with her father and she loves it as much as she does the memories associated with it. This all resonated with me. My father and I did the same thing when I was a child and I’ll never forget those times in my life. When we first meet Pattie, she’s spitting mad and then she sinks into a depression. I thought at first, she would be this meek, doe eyed girl but she’s a total spitfire. She still has her moments where uncertainty take hold but she gives as good as she gets. I loved her.

    Jon Bradshaw is a wealthy, one-night-stand all the women love. He doesn’t hear the word no very often and he’s used to getting what he wants, when he wants. Then he meets Patti who literally turns his world upside down. She changes everything for him, from the way he thinks, to the way he lives his life and once he’s had a taste of her, he can’t get enough. I enjoyed Jon’s character. Even when he was being a cocky little manwhore, he still tore up the pages with his charm and alpha male qualities. This author has a wonderful talent for writing amazing hero’s with complex structures and Jon was definitely complex.

    The Wrap Up: 
    This is a sweet romance where there is just enough conflict to get you emotionally invested in both the story and the characters as well as some fun, feel-good moments. There are a couple of times when you’re not sure how things are going to work out for the MC’s but when they come together, they completely win you over. 

    I also loved seeing recurring characters from the previous books coming into scenes so we get snippets of their continuing lives and what's happening with them. This was just a wonderful read. I love this author and her writing and stories leave me with a smile every time! 

    Note: Surrender To Love is book three in the Night Calls series and is an Adult Contemporary Romance written by J.C. Valentine. I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review through Tasty Book Tours .

    Lots of Angst With Two Leads That Are Far From Perfect

    Those wanting a nice mix of romance and angst will get exactly that in Surrender to Love. It's an intensely emotional journey as two people let their pasts control their future. Through life altering events they realize the importance of moving on in a HEA that is full of tears and misunderstandings. All through the story though are numerous hot encounters amidst one or two cliched moments that left me frustrated along with a hero that's far from perfect.

    Jon is still reeling from a devastating event in his past that has led to him closing parts of himself off. He's living his life for someone else as his personal form of punishment, not allowing any long-term happiness. He flits from one woman to another never letting himself get close which led me to see him in an unsavory light at first. He was a true player before he met Patricia and love definitely had him becoming more supportive and less guilt-ridden.

    Patricia too is living her life for someone else after the death of her father has her embracing fast cars. She continues to be the daughter her father always wanted while alienating her mother. She's reckless which makes for a rocky road to happiness as Jon frowns upon that kind of behavior. I like that Patricia is strong-willed and doesn't let a man walk all over her. She sticks up for herself and isn't afraid to go toe to toe with Jon in an argument. An event happens late in the story though that greatly annoyed me in its soap opera nature and had me thinking that Patricia should've acted less like a flighty teenager and more like a modern woman.

    Though I had a few issues with the protagonists they ultimately won me over as the healing power of love helped heal them and pointed them towards the future. The secondary characters, the friends to our main couple, were fun and very vocal in speaking their minds. They were supportive, playful in their banter, and easy to relate to. From start to finish this was an emotional story with lots of sexual encounters that felt like a soap opera at times but kept me fully invested in the outcome.
