Review ~ Surrender by Violetta Rand


Welcome to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where the air is heavy with desire—and sometimes dreams come true.

Ever since her mother kicked her out, twenty-year-old Robyn Gonzalez has been working the poles at the Devil’s Den, saving up to finish college and travel the world. With only her wits and her gorgeous body to rely on, Robyn has learned to be independent—fiercely independent. She’s never been tempted to let a man distract her from her dreams . . . until she meets the dead-sexy Garrick Dempsey.

The club’s new head of security, Garrick had walked away from a career as a mechanical engineer to return to his roots in Corpus Christi. He hadn’t planned on getting to know someone like Robyn, with her sinfully sweet combination of vulnerability and strength, at the Devil’s Den. She acts tough, but only because she’s been hurt. Soon Garrick knows he will do anything to win Robyn’s trust. And if that means surrendering to the red-hot chemistry between them, all the better.

My Thoughts:

This one was a wonderful story about a stripper, Robyn, her guilt about her job at the Devil's Den, how she came to be in that position, some of the dangers that can happen, her friends, and of course her romance with a fabulous man.

Garrick was everything great that I could think up. He was patient, caring, supportive, possessive, jealous, protective, handsome....... He was so awesome that he even helped to resolve something that had been under her skin for years.

There was tear jerking moments, humorous parts, scenes that were scorchingly sexy, action, danger, romance, some great characters and some that I didn't care for like a certain Dr. and Carlos.

There were a decent number of pages but I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting staying up until I was finished.

I thought it was phenomenal! If you like great stories with interesting plots and great characters, you should read this. It had a stripper as a heroine but it is not about BDSM or anything like that. There is sex but not at the club and not with more than one person, so no worries!

I received an ecopy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. I'm reading the next book in the series soon as well! I am extremely excited to get to it.
