SURRENDER MY LOVE is a USA TODAY BESTSELLER
Fall in love with Cole Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.
In SURRENDER MY LOVE...
Annalise "Leesa" Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush--and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.
From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He's a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there's a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart--and a painful past--but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.
A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs--and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
(This review was originally published in nerdychampagne) I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review) I thought I was being left behind in this series (The Bradens in Peaceful Harbor) but it turns out that this is just the second book so it makes me happy that I’m not behind after all. This is, like, fourth or third Melissa Foster book and I’m telling you to jump on this wagon too. It’s like the ultimate cliches you’ll never to be able to resist. Because they’re the ultimates. Let’s go straight to the point. Surrender my Love is a really sweet and emotional read. I love the characters especially Leese’s strength as a human being in general. I mean, we can’t control everything that happens to us so whether the fallback is good or not, it is up to us to choose on how to deal with it. Cole is your typical big brother all-good kinda guy. He’s so damn sweet and one can only wish for a Cole all to themselves. Really, he’s such a family oriented person, but let’s admit it, what’s not to love about the Bradens?????? I love the start of this book. I mean it might actually be my favorite part — aside from the entire book, I mean. There was this air or mystery to the both of them and I actually craved that. I mean, I didn’t know I needed it until I had it. The plot has a common skeleton but the thing with this book is that there’s just so much emotions tied to the words. I wasn’t as emotionally invested to this book unlike in Healed by Love (because that was a real roller coaster mainly because of Jewel) but there were still so many feelings. Mainly love and heartache at the same time. The writing is amazing (never expect less from Melissa)! Plus, there are these quotable quotes that pop up to you and stay deep in your soul. (I have to go editing stuff for WFW soon !!) Overall, Surrender my Love is a masterpiece of all drama romance and everything contemporary. It’s so cliche you love it before you even start. I mean, I did. There’s just something mystical about the idea of wanting to start over after having your life ruined to pieces. In the end, we may be a little blind of everybody because of a (false) familiarity. It was the only thing you know so you stick with it and ignore the feeling of something missing. Life is not about contentment. Life is about always chasing the spark, the meaning of how you live. And sometimes, you just have to give in – give in to love.
Melissa Foster has done it once again!! Cole Braden is a hot doctor that is also an Alpha male. I fell in love with the Braden's from the first time we meet them. Melissa has a way to draw you in with her characters making you feel like they are a part of your own family!! You love the characters and can relate to them like your own brothers and sisters. Annalise, Lessa, is a young lady that is visiting her best friend while trying to let a situation calm down in her hometown with her job. Lessa is not running from her problems, but more or less just trying to space her own image. When her boyfriend ended up breaking up with her because if the situation, her whole world seems like it is crumbling in on her. That is why Leesa decides to visit her friend. When Leesa decides to do a favor for her friend one day and stop to get her a coffee and muffin, she never dreamed that she would meet a man that would be willing to give up anything and everything for a woman he doesn't even know. Cole Braden ends up giving Leesa the last muffin of his favorite type and his coffee for her friend. He also ends up paying for it because Leesa forgot her money. Cole has a hard time believing Leesa that the muffin and coffee are for her friend, but he uses it as a joke with Leesa. When Leesa goes to a doctors appointment with her friend, she did not expect the man that was occupying her mind to be her friends doctor. Leesa saw Cole and was lost for words. She knew that there was something there between them when she was speechless. Leesa has no idea when she will see Cole again but there would never be a too soon for her. When Leesa ends up working a bachelors auction, she had no clue that Cole and all his single brothers were going to be on the auction block. When Cole begs Leesa to buy him so that he will not have to go with his ex that has shown up, Leesa thought he was crazy. Leesa had already turned Cole down for a date so how was she going to buy him for a date in front of the whole town?? Leesa was trying to stay out of the spotlight and now Cole was putting her in it!! I love how Cole and Leesa fell into an easy relationship and felt so comfortable with each other from the very beginning. Cole treated Leesa with such care and concern that he makes you melt. Will these two find a way to be with each other and find their HEA?? You need to read this one so that Cole Braden can make you swoon and fall for him!! Such a great read!! I can't wait to see what the other Braden brothers have in store for us!!
*I received the following product(s) to review . I was not required to write a positive review no other monetary compensation was given . Any and all opinions are my own. Cole Braden, an orthopedic surgeon in Peaceful harbor , has had his heart broken in the past pretty bad. Though his heart was left in pieces he hasn’t given up on that special someone that may come into his life and spend the rest of their days together. His faith and never ending hope, has possibly paid off when he meets a woman that ignites a fire in him he never knew before. But is this the woman he’s been dreaming of? Annalise is on the mend, a teacher who has a career that seems to be spiraling out of control. Stressed and worn through, worrying if she will ever have a job again she hides out and tries to find reprieve in Peaceful Harbor while an investigation goes on at home. Though trying to settle and put things back together Annalise is not ready for another life altering change, but then again things never happen when you expect them too. When Cole enters her life she is not ready for a romance to spark up quicker than she’s ever imagined, and Leesa’s issues from her past may just ruin any chance she has at keeping Cole in her life all together. The last thing she wants to do, is hurt Cole or his family. Leesa is drawn in immediately to Cole, he’s caring and protective and comes loaded with a loving family that easily takes her in. Cole’s family sees Leesa for who she is, and stands by her as she starts healing. Cole finds something in Leesa that he hasn’t found in anyone else and the chemistry is not easy to ignore even if one of them tried, yet each time Cole gets a little closer Leesa seems to step back. He doesn’t know what is going on, she can’t deny what is building between them. There is no doubt the love and kindness they find within each others arms, but with the past looming over Leesa, and her fears hitching up, it doesn’t make such a smooth ride for either of them, and it just may end up pulling them apart. Will Leesa be able to forgive the person who’d put her entire career on the line and possibly ruined forever? Will Cole be able to get over Leesa’s past ? They have grown so close so fast but have overcome more than many couples do in a lifetime. Even still, just how much more can they handle? Will they be able to truly, Forgive, Heal and Love in the end? You will have to find out yourself in Surrender My Love!
Whenever I hear the name Melissa Foster, a smile lights up my face as I know I am in for a real treat when I pick up any books with her name on the cover. Foster has the ability to make the pages come to life, breathe life into her characters and make them come alive in front of your eyes. The talent that she has radiates off the pages of her novels, which are never dull. Her newest novel Surrender My Love is another one of these masterpieces as it features the famous Bradens and a new love story. I absolutely fell in love with Cole Braden and the way he embraces Annalise and her "secret". Annalise, is someone who is guarded and not very trusting after something traumatic happens at her last job as teacher. The compassion and kindness that Cole shares with her is so beautiful and the interaction between the two is heartwarming and pure. I absolutely loved Surrender My Love as it is another Braden series that just keeps getting better. Foster has a knack for making her readers fall in love with the characters with whom she shares their wonderful stories. Anytime a book is written by Melissa Foster, it should be added to your To-Be-Read-Shelf.
