I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Celebrity rock star, Lucas Masterson has it all. But is missing one thing. He finds that in Rebecca (Becca) Chase one day in a parking lot. He has car trouble and she does not hesitate to help. Lucas is drawn to Becca immediately. What he finds even more intriguing about her is that, she doesn't realize who he is, or perhaps she does and does not care.
Lucas and Becca end up on a date and sparks fly. This intense, passionate couple fall for each other rather quickly. While some may not like insta-love, including myself, I found this to be believable. Can we really put a time frame on feelings and love? Not where it concerns Lucas and Becca. They had a lot of chemistry and their lives made so much more sense as they were together. Being a rock star has its pros and cons, especially when trying to have a relationship. The past comes back to haunt both Lucas and Becca. It is insistent on keeping them apart. However, what Lucas and Becca have is real and undeniable, so they fight for each other. They fight for their love as they surrender to their feelings.
I found this to be an enjoyable story. I will definitely be reading the next, as I feel that Lucas and Becca's story is far from over. There is so much more to find out about the two of them. So much more love to be shared and explored. I look forward to the continuation. If you are looking for a steamy fast paced romance, then this is for you.
*I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Rebecca Chase meets Lucas Materson in a parking lot of a liquor store, he is having car trouble, and he asks her if she can help jump-start his car. There is instant attraction between the two. Lucas feels that there is something different about Becca, and he persuades her to go on a date with him the next day. Becca not up with celebrity gossip doesn’t know whom Lucas is, Becca is shocked when she ends up at a concert that night with her best friend Jen and sees Lucas up on stage.
Becca is a quiet, independent normal girl. She is not into dating or relationships. All she wants is to get her college degree and leave home. I did find Rebecca frustrating at times as I felt she was a little naïve, a little too trusting. Lucas is a rock star who has it all; his dream job, fame and money. He has some trust issues, as he knows people may use him to get what they want because of who he is.
“To her, I wasn’t Lucas Materson the celebrity; I was just a guy in a parking lot trying to get a date with her. I can only hope that won’t change now that she knows who I am”
Rebecca and Lucas was a cute couple; they are feeling things that they have never felt before, the chemistry is intense thus resulting in plenty of steamy scenes. The way Lucas is with Becca and the way he doesn’t hold back in telling her his true feelings I thought was sweet. But that being said I did feel that their relationship was rushed and felt a bit forced at times. It was a bit too insta love for me.
The storyline was told from Becca and Lucas’s POVs about two people from very different worlds who fall in love. It not all smooth sailing as drama, insecurities, self-doubt, jealousy and secrets get in the way. I liked the storyline I just wish it had been longer as to me some parts were rushed, and had it been longer these parts could have been developed more. There were times that I felt I was being told rather than shown what was happening.
Surrender To Me was a sweet, romantic easy read. Secondary characters such as Jen added some humour to the story; she was a great friend, and support for Becca giving her some great and funny advice. The texts between the two made me laugh.
Overall, even though this book was fast paced I did like it. The ending you could say was sort of a happy one as there wasn't a cliffhanger, but it was one that also lets you know that Becca and Lucas’ story will be continued. I will certainly read the next book, as I’m curious to see what happens next.
“He’s going to be my undoing, the one person that can crack me open, and make me surrender all of myself to him.”
“I’m not usually a sucker for the shy girls, but this one has something…. different”
“I don’t know why this thing is so hard for me. I want Luke; every time he touches me it’s like my whole body is on fire.”
“After our first date, I knew she was the one to make me change my ways, and since then I haven’t been able to control myself around her; she fills the empty place in my soul that I’ve harboured for so long”
“If you really feel a connection with this girl, then go for it and screw anyone who has a problem with it” ~ Lucas’s dad
“I know you aren’t used to people taking care of you, but you’d better get used to it with me. I take care of what’s mine, and you Rebecca chase, are mine”
