Release Day Blitz: Surrendering To Us by Chelsea M. Cameron ~ Bianca's Review and Kindle Fire Giveaway!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
Is it over already? I don't think I could get enough Rory and Lucah, and this follow up was no exception.
As with any couple, Rory and Lucah face obstacles in their relationship. There is a threat of an ex and Rory's insecurities causes a rift between her and Lucah. Despite everything, Lucah reassures Rory that she is the only woman for him. I absolutely love Lucah. He's sexy, smart, and so swoon worthy. He truly solidifies his love for Rory in this book through his actions. He loves Rory beyond anything and anyone else.
There are some unexpected twists and turns in this one as Rory and Lucah continue with their relationship. The story is also filled with humor and romance. This series is definitely one of my favorites in that I truly have connected with Rory and Lucah. In this book we get to know the important people in their lives and roles they play.
Like the fist book, Sweet Surrendering, Rory and Lucah have the most amazing chemistry. Their relationship is so realistic and genuine. I absolutely loved that the story was a little slower paced than the last one. We truly get to see Rory and Lucah grow not only as a couple, but as individuals. Their relationship started in secret and based on some lies, so to watch them build their lives together and continue to fall deeper in love was amazing to read. If you liked the first book, you will love Surrendering To Us. Watching their story continue was thrilling and exciting. Their love for each other truly shines in this follow up.
Rory and Lucah's story is far from over. I just know it! The story didn't end in a cliffhanger, but it ended in such a way that I want more. I am looking forward to the rest in this series. Please Ms. Cameron, we want more Rory and Lucah!

Wes put his chin on my shoulder. “What the hell is that?”
I put my phone down and turned to face him. “Nothing that concerns you.”
“Are you seriously sexting another guy while I’m in your bed?”
“What?” I raised an eyebrow. “No. Who the hell even says that word? That’s reserved for political scandals.”
“I’m saying it because you were dirty texting another guy while you had me in bed with you? Are you also sending pics of your boobs too?”
My mouth gaped open. “What the hell? Do you just think I’m some kind of slut?”
He groaned, propping up on his elbow. “No. I just know how guys think. If some dude is texting you at 1 AM it’s not because he wants to go out for tea and cookies. He wants sex.”
“And I’m sure you haven’t done that millions of times.”
“I’m not an animal, Val. I have a little bit more respect for women than that.”
“Says the guy who married a girl he just met in Vegas.”
He grunted, grabbing my phone and putting it on the table beside us. “I could have done a lot worse.” He placed a quick kiss on my cheek but let his lips hover just above it. “And I don’t regret it one bit.”
“I’m sure that’s not true,” I whispered, barely able to get the words out. Truth was, I was starting not to regret it either.
He pushed a strand of hair behind my ear before his lips trailed back to my cheek and then down my neck, his stubble tickling my sensitive skin. “There’s nowhere else I’d rather be right now than here with you in this bed. I could lay here forever underneath these fake stars.”
I sucked in a breath, unsure of what to say next. But the moment didn’t really need words either. He breathed into my neck as if he was inhaling all of me. Trying to make a memory of my scent.
