From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the next standalone rockstar romance in her Seaside Pictures series…
Surrender is now live!
I had his posters on my wall when I was sixteen and when I accidentally got pregnant in high school—his was the face I dreamt of when I closed my eyes at night.
Now, over twenty years later, that dream’s turned into a reality.
Not only is Drew Amhurst in my tiny town of Seaside, live and in the flesh…
But he’s mentoring my rockstar son.
Drew says he’s mine for a week.
And he made me three promises.
“No strings attached.”
“No falling in love.”
“It’s only seven days.”
He’s confident that he can help me rediscover myself both in and out of the bedroom, and I’m confident that he’s too arrogant for his own good.
And at the end of seven days, he swears he’ll walk out of my life the way he came into it.
The only problem is, the more I get to know him, the more I want to surrender the last pieces of my heart and beg him to stay.
NICUnurse’s Review of Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken
Surrender is the finale in Rachel Van Dyken’s Seaside Pictures series, and the long-awaited, much-anticipated story of Drew Amhurst. It is written as a standalone title, but you really can’t go wrong reading the entire series. I’ve been an RVD fan for quite some time. If you read and/or follow my reviews, this is nothing new to you. And I’m a long-time fan for a reason. She has a fantastic talent for writing books that take hold of your emotions from the first chapter and dragging them on this crazy roller coaster ride to the end of the story. While there is a little bit of angst in this book, for the most part, the dialogue keeps it more upbeat. There are moments you will laugh out loud (group texts never fail to crack me up in this series!), and there are moments your heart breaks for Drew and Bronte.
Who will love this book: Contemporary romance and rockstar romance fans will swoon over Drew Amhurst. But if you’re looking for a really angsty book, this one isn’t for you, but I can recommend plenty of those by Rachel Van Dyken.
NICUnurse’s Rating: If you’re looking for an emotional, funny, and sexy beach read, Surrender is the book for you. It’s the perfect blend of all three of those. The witty banter keeps you from being emotionally wrung out, but it doesn’t detract from the emotional struggles Drew and Bronte are going through, either, as a couple and each of them separately. And the chemistry and sexual tension between these two characters is off the charts! I loved the build-up to their first time together. And the relationship between Drew and Bronte’s daughter was what cemented my love for this story. Somehow Drew knows how to be the perfect blend of friend and adult authority. Surrender answers all the questions about Drew and his relationship with his bandmates and wraps up the Seaside Pictures series perfectly without making it confusing to a reader that may not have read the other books in the series.
I give Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken 4.5 out of 5 propellers!
