[Book Blitz] The Lover's Surrender

Title: The Lover's Surrender
Author: J.C. Reed
Released: November 25th, 2015
Genre: Mature New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance

LOVE…sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it’s bad. And sometimes it’s dangerous.

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, is sure of one of thing. She should never fully trust someone who has secrets. Especially when said bad boy is the sexiest man walking on earth. She is running away and has no intention of ever returning to him. But when a friend is killed and the one man she thought she would never meet again is accused of murder, she knows the story doesn’t add up.

Dangerously sexy and arrogant millionaire Jett Mayfield knows his secrets are not doing him any favors. However, when they serve to save Brooke’s life, he has no intention of revealing them. When problems spiral out of control and his life is turned upside down, he knows he needs her more than ever. He needs her more than he knows. But will he be strong enough to do what needs to be done?

In a world where truth shatters and danger is closing in on them, where love is their only sanctuary, will they be able to find each other or is it time to let each other go?

Dangerous love

Are you curious about the No Exceptions series but don't know where to start?
The story spans over several books with the same characters.

The original idea was to write the story of Brooke and Jett, which resulted in the Surrender Your Love series. Like so many readers, I found it hard to part with the characters, so I wrote an extension, a companion series with its own mystery and storyline: the No Exceptions series.

While both series can be read as standalone, they're best enjoyed together.
Here's the reading order for those who don't want any spoilers and want to enjoy the roller-coaster ride:

[Cover Reveal] Skepticism


COMING 11-30-15



It’s been ten years, and I live every day with the weight of regret on my shoulders.

We’ve all done bad things, things that we are ashamed of. But those things make us the people that we are today. And today, I’m Liam Brown. When those closest to me were killed, I had to kill my former self just to stay alive. My real name is Micah Lomano, and I left my life fabricating a web of lies along the way to keep what I had done a secret. But I never forgot about Natalene, and now nothing matters…because I don’t have her.

After one fatal night rocked us to the core, everything changed.

I had everything I’d ever wanted: the perfect guy, a loving family, and more money than I knew what to do with. But in an instant, my world stopped. Somehow I’d survived, but I lost everything I knew, everything I wanted. Including myself. I knew then that nothing would ever be the same. I waited for Micah to find me, just like he promised he would. But he never did, and it was when I needed him most. So I was forced with a choice, one that I didn’t want to make: Raise his child on the run or give her up?

The decision wrecked me and what hurt most off all…Micah had no idea that I was pregnant.

[Blog Tour] November 9
"November 9 is yet another breathtaking novel by Colleen Hoover that's full of blushing, gushing, and heartache. I loved every page and breathed in every beautiful word."
—Anna Todd, author of the After series

Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day of her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?

What can I possibly say about November 9. Well let’s see, it’s a Colleen Hoover novel, so I obviously devoured it. I can’t explain it… but the way that Colleen writes just  begs you to keep reading.  It’s so hard to put a book down written by her.  I’ve been in quite the book slump lately too, and once I finally picked this up to read it, I couldn’t stop.  Every moment that I wasn’t reading, I was thinking about the characters and what was going to happen to them.  I mean seriously, Colleen. How do you do it to me!?  EVERY. TIME.  I can’t help but immerse myself in the stories that Colleen tells. 

November 9, I have to say was a little bit different from her normal works. I mean I could be wrong, but I feel  like this one was different. The premise was absolutely stunning – as always. There was so much angst and passion it was ridiculous. So obviously I fell in love with this novel. Who doesn’t fall madly deeply in love with a Colleen Hoover novel though? I mean lets be real. First of all, the names that she chooses for her characters… I can’t even.  Especially Benton and Fallon; I couldn’t love those names more. 

I can’t even begin to put into words my feelings towards this book. I loved and hated it at the same time. I loved the passion between the two characters, and the devotion to keeping a tradition going for any amount of years with a technical stranger. I hated what happened to both of them.  I hated the hurt and turmoil that  each of them went through. I hated the secrets.  The part that I hated most of all, is that I didn’t hate it. Not even a little. Not even at all. Yes… I am slightly obsessed with the movie 10 things I hate about you, thus the reference. 

Not once, through this entire novel did I hate the male character. I loved Benton.  Fiercely.  Honestly I think I loved him more and more throughout the novel, even after you learn his secrets.  I got mad at Fallon quite a few times for her reactions, but I completely understood where her emotions were coming from.  I just couldn’t help it though, I fell for Ben. Hard. 

The tears this novel brought to my eyes were relentless. I’m  probably a little over emotional  at times, but the agony…  I can’t.  If you’re not a Colleen Hoover fan, read this book. It’s definitely worth your time. If you are a CoHo fan, I don’t need to say anything because you’ve already read it.  I guarantee this will give you the feels, no matter who you are.  But alas, I can’t reveal anything  about this because I would be ruining the story for you. I will say there are some pretty huge revelations though. Some, if you’re like me… you’ll see them coming. Hope to hell that they’re not real, but you know deep down that it’s true. It happened. It’s happening.  Those are the moments I live for as a reader, and once again CoHo has not failed me.  


Colleen Hoover is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Slammed, This Girl, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, Losing Hope, Finding Cinderella, Maybe Someday, Ugly Love, Maybe Not, and Confess. She lives in Texas with her husband and their three boys.

[Blog Tour] Cam Girl


Vada Bergen is broke, the black sheep of her family, and moving a thousand miles away from home for grad school, but she’s got the two things she loves most: her art and her best friend—and sometimes more—Ellis Carraway. Ellis and Vada have a friendship so consuming it’s hard to tell where one girl ends and the other begins. It’s intense. It’s a little codependent. And nothing can tear them apart. Until an accident on an icy winter road changes everything.

Vada is left deeply scarred, both emotionally and physically. Her once-promising art career is cut short. And Ellis pulls away, unwilling to talk about that night. Everything Vada loved is gone. She’s got nothing left to lose.

So when she meets some smooth-talking entrepreneurs who offer to set her up as a cam girl, she can’t say no. All Vada has to do is spend a couple hours each night stripping on webcam, and the “tips” come pouring in.

It’s just a kinky escape from reality until a client gets serious. “Blue” is mysterious, alluring, and more interested in Vada’s life than her body. Online, they chat intimately. Blue helps her heal. And he pays well, but he wants her all to himself. No more cam shows. It’s an easy decision: she’s starting to fall for him. But the steamier it gets, the more she craves the real man behind the keyboard. So Vada pops the question: Can we meet IRL?

Blue agrees, on one condition. A condition that will bring back a ghost from her past.

Now Vada must confront what she’s been running from. A past full of devastating secrets—those of others and those she’s been keeping from herself…

Leah Rader has easily become one of my new favorite authors. The intensity and gritty truth that she puts into her novels  Is undeniable and refreshing. The fact that she broaches on subjects that aren’t in the “norm” is just  one of the more admirable qualities that she has as well. I will never hesitate to pick up a Raeder book, because I know I’ll instantaneously fall in awe with the passion behind her words. 

         With that being said, this is one of those hard reviews to write. I’m not exactly sure where my emotions lie with this novel. Did I love it? Yes. But putting into words the feels that you get from reading this is unexplainable in words. I have to say that all of Leah’s works are the same way for me. I’m literally blown away with every page I read from every novel that she writes.  As I come out of reading one of Leah’s novels I feel like I’m left in a haze of confusing emotions. There is literally no connection from my brain to my mouth to tell you how I feel.

        The way that Leah transforms words to art and art to words is stunning. I literally can’t even.  I’m not really understanding of art, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate it and dabble in things myself. The way that the art is described in this novel is exquisite. I felt like I understood everything. The colors and the meaning behind the artful phases that I never in a million years could think I could relate to, I related to. The simplicity of the imagery is astonishing, because it’s not at all simple; it’s complex. However that doesn’t stop you from loving every word. 

Honestly, there’s nothing I can tell you about this book that wouldn’t be spoiling it. So for that reason, all I can say is that I loved it, and that you need to read this. The raw emotions that run through you because of these characters is incomparable to anything.  I will say that I definitely had my issues with some of the characters, but everyone is entitled to have their moments. At times I hated Vada, but then I couldn’t get enough of her.  Read this. You’ll see what I mean, or what I haven’t said… and you’ll understand why I haven’t said it. 

        Leah Raeder, I swear to god you make me question my own sexuality with every book you write. That’s probably one of the more significant things that I adore about you. Not only is she challenging and bold, but artistic and not afraid to push the limits or boundaries on subjects that aren’t so widely talked about.  My imaginary hat tips off to you. 

Leah Raeder is a writer and unabashed nerd. She is also the USA Today bestselling author of Unteachable and Black Iris. Aside from reading her brains out, she enjoys graphic design, video games, fine whiskey, and the art of self-deprecation. She lives with her very own manic pixie dream boy in Chicago. Visit her at

Chapter 1

Oh fuck! The bathroom is covered in blood. It’s smeared down the wall and pooled around my mom’s head, where she’s lifelessly lying flat on her face. Fear freezes me. What in the world happened? The shower curtain is ripped down, her bloody hand print is smeared along the side of the tub where she struggled to get herself up.
            “Ma,” I yell, finally willing myself to move to her side. I touch her back to wake her and suddenly I’m back in Afghanistan. I push away the images assaulting me that I have worked so hard to suppress. But still, before my eyes is a wounded soldier, shot, bloody, and hanging on to life. God dammit, stop! This is my mom, not that place. I’m scared to move her and know better than to even try. My worst fear in this world is something happening to her. Moving my trembling hands to shake her a little more, I’m about to lose it. I don’t want to hurt her, but I also want to wake her any way possible. My heart is thudding against the walls of my chest as I grab her wrist to see if she has a pulse. I sit in silence, fighting to hear her heart. How did this happen? Did someone hurt her? Where is all this blood coming from? My mind races, all the while I’m listening. I’m not sure if what I feel is her heart or mine, but I go with my gut and hop up the best that I can, my prosthetic making it hard to move around.
             Quickly I swipe the phone off of her nightstand and grab a towel as I drop back to my knees, dialing 911. Tears stream down my face looking at her this way. The blood is coming from a gash on her head, and I try to click into numb soldier mode as I press the towel onto the wound to stem the bleeding. Someone had to have done this to her. There’s simply too much blood for her to have slipped and fallen on her own. I feel the panic overtaking me, worming through the numbness.
            “911, what’s your emergency?”
            “It’s—” I choke, staring at her weak body.
            “Hello? Sir, what’s your emergency?”
            “My…My mom…I…I don’t know what….” My voice is shaky and I’m struggling through each word. “She’s…she’s unconscious and—”
            “Is she breathing, sir?”
            Fuck, there’s a lot of blood. My mind flashes back to the battlefield, my chest tightens, I’m frozen.
“Sir, I need to know if she’s breathing?”
            “I’m routing an ambulance to you. Are you at 211 Riverdale?”
            “Uh huh.”
            “Sir, now please tell me, is your mom breathing?”
            “She’s facedown, so… I don’t know.”
            “Is her airway clear?”
            Leaning over her, I look at my mom’s face and gently brush her hair out of the way. I can see that nothing is blocking her mouth or nose. Her eyes are closed and her poor glasses are smashed to hell, barely over her eyes.
            “There’s…” Fuck!
            “Sir? Her airway?”
            “It’s clear.”
            “Good, does she have a pulse?”
            “I think so.”
            I hear the dispatcher in the background speak to someone, then she comes back on the line. “The ambulance should be there in less than a minute, just leave her ‘til the medics arrive. Are you okay to get off the phone and open your front door?”
            “Yeah,” I say and hang up.
            I take a deep breath and try to push the panic down, unlocking the door in a haze. I need to get my shit together. Running back to my mom, I rest my head softly against hers, I cry and just pray that she’ll be okay. She has to be. I’ve already lost one woman in my life, so I sure as hell can’t lose another. Lying this close to her, I can feel her breathing.
            Thank God. Pulling the towel away, I check and see that her head is no longer bleeding. That’s good. But again my damn mind gets the best of me and morbid thoughts take over. I envision her in a casket, my dad and I crushed with grief standing over her, and the pain of it is as real as if I was standing right there, right now.
            All of a sudden the room is flooded with EMTs. “Sir, I need you to get up,” one of them says, his voice so faint as I struggle to come out of the grief brought on by my vision. Where did it even come from? He gently helps me up as I’m still having a hard time processing things.
            “What happened?” one of them asks me as the others begin to work on her.
            I replay the story the best that I can, fighting to stay calm and in the moment. Then out of the blue – a flashback to the day Arion collapsed in the hallway outside of her condo, when I showed up like an asshole and scared the shit out of her. She had no idea that I was alive, and the pure shock alone caused her to faint.
            Watching my mom just as helpless makes my world spin. Everything inside of me aches as my vision bounces between her, Arion, and war.

Every Heart Cover 


***I haven't finished Every Love yet, and I haven't yet reviewed Every Heart, so here is my review of Every Heart. The review of Every Love will be up as soon as I'm finished reading! Unfortunately, life has got in the way of my reading time. :( ***

First of all, I love LK Collins. Since her debut novel Fatalism, I’ve been completely immersed in her words.  The characters just amaze me and always leave me wanting more. The stories she weaves will give you an absolute tailspin in love, misery, happiness, and triumph.  Not only is LK an excellent writer, but she interacts with her readers on a personal level. What more could you possibly ask for in an author!? 

Every Heart killed me. I was so torn between Bain and Nate that I couldn’t decide what I wanted Arion to do. I wanted her to be with each of them in their perspective ways.  The raw emotions come from the characters is simply flawless on every level. I don’t know how many times I cried while reading this, or wanted to throw something in anger over the absurd choices that had to be made, but I couldn’t love this story more. 

After the cliff hanger in Every Soul, you just don’t know what will happen. This was the perfect follow up. Not only do you get to meet Nate, but you get to see a new side of Bain that you thought you’d never see.  There is this way that LK evokes you as the reader to be involved with this story is simply astonishing. If there was a scale from One to Even, I can’t. Honestly, I mean I can’t even create a coherent sentence I’m so tore up over this book. 

In the end, a decision has to be made, but how does one make that choice? I don’t think I’d ever want to be in the situation that Arion has herself in. Past and Current loves… it’s just unimaginable!  The heart-wrenching pain that each of these characters go through in this novel is insufferable.  This novel will leave you cradling your knees while crying asking why?!, several times while reading it. I simply can’t say enough about this novel, you really just need to read this series, right now.  LK will leave you speechless  on so many occasions, I promise you. I’m always rendered speechless at the end of her novels, and find it so hard to write a review because honestly nothing I say will ever be good enough to compare to the level of love I have for this woman’s words.
