This book is book three of the Surrendering series. It can be read as a stand alone, however, I would definitely recommend reading the other books in the series because the characters are recurring and I think it would be more enjoyable to the reader to know them better.
I loved the secondary characters in this book. Ember's Aunt Chloe is a total trip and I just wanted to hug her cousin, Cruz. Oh, and Cruz's boyfriend, Alex? Yeah, they are both yummy. They are gay, over protective, alpha male big brother figures to Ember and I loved them to death. I want them to be my big brothers so we can all watch chick flicks together and be snarky together.
Ember's childhood is heartbreaking and causes her to be very shy, withdrawn and insecure. Robbie, an ex-marine, helps bring her out of her shell and show her how to not be afraid to be herself. He's understanding about her insecurities while still be the typical alpha ex-military over-protective sexy male. The sexual attraction between these two is intense and the sex scenes are steamy hot to boiling!
Without giving too much away, there are other characters from Ember's past that show up whose ass I wanted to kick. Of course problems ensue and I wanted to kick Robbie's ass too at one point but there is a HEA and no cliffhangers so definitely read this one, you won't regret it!
Ahren spent her formative years living in an active volcano. There her family made collectible lava art. She studied rock collecting at the Sorbonne in France. There she met the love of her life-her pet pig Sybil. She returned to the states and started writing. She is happily married to a guy who used to live under a bridge and she met while pole-dancing. They have one amazing daughter. Now, meet the real me. I grew up in the south and consider myself a true “Southerner”. Most of the special locations mentioned in my books are reflections of my favorite places. Living on the Florida coast, my family spends a lot time at the beach which is where I usually can be found with a book in my hand. I started writing my Surrender Series, in the spring of 2013 and have received incredible support from the Indie community. Throughout this year, I have been privileged to meet some amazing people that I am thankful to have in my life.
