ARC Review: Surrender to Love by JC Valentine

Surrender to Love (Night Calls, #3)Surrender to Love by J.C. Valentine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Patricia Jacobs has been unlucky in love and now just plain unlucky in life. She has had it with men and she won’t allow them to manipulate and break her heart ever again. Catching your boyfriend cheating and getting fired from your job would make any sane woman throw in the towel on life. Until one day she has a fender bender that will change her life forever.

Jonathon Bradshaw is devastatingly handsome and oozes charm. He can have any woman he wants and has had plenty. Destroyed by past relationships he is not looking for an attachment to any one woman. Then he meets Patricia she is sassy, sexy and unlike any other woman, he has ever met. Completely taken with her Jon decides he will put the past behind him and claim Patricia as his own. But will the past come between them or make them stronger.

This is the 3rd book in the series but can be read as standalone. I read book one but not book two and this book was easy to follow. Each story focuses on a different couple and their journey toward happily ever after.

Patti and Jon have an electrifying chemistry from the moment they literally crash into each other. Their love scenes together are off the charts hot, JC Valentine knows how to write a love scene. Their story is not without trials and tribulations. The road to forever is one paved with secrets for this couple but they find their way.

A great story about letting someone in and opening yourself up to love and happiness.

ARC Review: Rule Breaker by Kat Bastion

Rule Breaker (Unbreakable, #2)Rule Breaker by Kat Bastion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Leilani Kealoha is a woman who wants to escape the high expectations of her family and the prejudice she has grown up with. Losing her mother at a young age she missed having her mom around for the guidance a girl needs. She is constantly breaking the rules set by the Hawaiian men in her family determined to keep her on a pedestal. She wants fun, excitement, adventure and something bigger and greater than the life she is living. In walks an East Coast surfer that could be the answer to all her dreams. If she has the courage to let him in.

Mason Price has had enough of toeing the line for his socialite parents. He’s not the son they want and he never will be. Tired of playing the games his parents want him to play he sets out on his own quest to find himself. His journey leads him to the beautiful islands of Hawaii and the even more beautiful Leilani. A local girl with sass and grit that makes him want to put down roots. She is a challenge to him, she won’t fall at his feet and spill her secrets. She wants nothing from him like the other girls in his social circle back home looking to land a rich husband. She’s everything he can’t have but everything he wants to keep.

Mace and Lani’s story was a slow burn. Sweet and innocent their love bloomed over time. It was pure magic to read how this unlikely couple became each other’s salvation. It is not an easy road for the couple with the prejudices they face within both their families. But their love for each other prevails and they are on their way to a beautiful happily ever after. Truly a modern-day Romeo and Juliet you will love these characters. As always Kat and Stone Bastion do a wonder job making you want to know these endearing people. I definitely recommend.
