Bravo for the novels of Ju Ephraime. I had the pleasure of reading Complete Surrender, the third in her four book series, and I was blown away. I got so caught up in the book that I was late to my job on the third shift. From the first chapter the heated attraction between the hero, Raymond, and the heroine, Gabrielle, was quite apparent, but the author played it along, while giving the reader a glimpse into the mind of Raymond's strong desire for Gabrielle. When he was finally able to have his way with her, the scenes were steamy and hot. I love every minute of it. Kudos to Ephraime for writing these exceptional scenes. Even the description of the island, its people, and the creole language, were well done. I’m now off to pick up the other books in the series, if this is an indication of what I’m in for.

To start with, this book is written in 3rd person; very rarely can I get into a book written from this point of view, much less enjoy it. This is also the case with Complete Surrender; there is a total disconnect between me and the characters in the 3rd person writing style. Secondly, the book is extremely overly descriptive, and repetitive at times. I was also gifted with the actual copy and unfortunately, I was surprised by the number of errors I found. I was told Complete Surrender can be read as a standalone, even though it’s the third in the LaCasse series. I do not agree; there’s a huge amount of interaction with the two brothers, whom were the main characters from books 1 & 2, and even though I was given the backstory, I felt lost. The brothers, and the family, are in more than half the book! This is why I typically won’t start in the middle of a series. The steamy love scenes were the only promising thing for me in the story. With the rest of the book; I was ready for it to be over, and couldn’t get into it. Unfortunately, I have to give Complete Surrender 1.5 stars, I really didn’t like it, but maybe if it wasn’t written in 3rd person, it could have been better....Sara

Raymond was in a hurry to get to the airport, unaware they were stopping to pick up another passenger. He didn't appreciate the delay…until he saw this particular passenger. She immediately mesmerized him with her unusual eyes so he didn't notice their coats had gotten mixed up until he was already in flight. Since his phone, license, and other important items were in his coat, it was vital he get it back. Her phone was in her pocket, but it was locked so he couldn't answer it. Maybe if he could call his own phone when he landed, she would answer and they could make arrangements to fix their little mix up…and he would be able to see her again. This was the first book in the LaCasse series I've had the opportunity to read. Now that I have, I'm going back to read what I've missed! The storyline is adorable, the hero and heroine unique, and the supporting characters an added bonus. Everyone meshed together perfectly and I can't wait to read more about the other characters. Ms. Ephraime gave us a VERY sexually compatible hero and heroine with Raymond and Gabrielle. The sex was sensual and explicit, and kept my eyes absolutely glued to the pages! I thoroughly enjoyed Complete Surrender and highly recommend it!  And now…I'm going back for the rest in the series that I've unfortunately missed! 4 1/2 Stars!

I received this book to give an honest review. I love stories like these especially when they involve family. It just adds a special touch to the story. I really do love Foxx and Wolfe they just seem like they could have their own stories. :) Now the reason I am giving this book a 4 instead of a solid 5 like I was hoping to is because I believe the two main characters fell in love way to fast. And the fact that it seemed Raymond really got too many erections way too many times. I understood he was really into Gabrielle sexual but it seemed more about sex with him. I would have liked to have seen more of a relationship build between the two characters rather than I meet you, let's have sex, I love you, more sex, let's get married. What about showing her around the island? Maybe doing something at the beach?  I do enjoy this author's writing style and I like how she adds her own touch into the story line. I do plan on reading more in this series because I am liking the family that is in twined with this story of Raymond. I did enjoy the bit of mystery that surrounded Gabrielle and her brother I thought that was a good touch. Overall good read.

I don't usually read love stories, but this one had me fascinated. I liked reading about Raymond and his close family. He came home to a loving family in Martinique. The beauty of the country was described in such vivid detail, that it made me want to visit. I enjoyed the mystery that was happening at the same time. What was in the coat that Gabrielle was so insistent on having returned to her? She was falling in love with Raymond, but she was still worried about the coat. This was a fun read.

"Complete Surrender (LaCasse)" by Ju Ephraim is a lovely romantic story with some drama and suspense to spice it up.  Set on the beautiful Carribbean island of Martinique it has a magic feel to it, brought alive by the author with great detail and knowledge of the Creole culture. Two strangers accidentally end up with each others coats, a lucky coincidence since there is some sparkling chemistry between them. Unfortunately for the lovers there are some sinister complications in the way of their romance. Ephraim has created a great central conflict for the love story and very interesting characters to carry the drama. I don't often read romantic stories but I really enjoyed this book with its smooth writing and exotic location. A very pleasant read that has enough tension to make for a well rounded experience.
