Series: Surrender Saga #2
Genres: Coming Of Age
They're finally together. But the Universe seems intent on tearing them apart…
Rory Clarke might not be Lucah Blythe's boss anymore, but that doesn't mean they can sneak off to the boardroom for hot sex whenever they want. Keeping their hands off each other in the workplace is harder than they could have imagined, and that's not the only obstacle they have to deal with. Between Lucah's troublesome brother Ryder, and Rory's bff Sloane's inability to understand locked doors, they're drowning in drama.
But it's only about to get a lot worse when a blast from Lucah's past surfaces, and chaos at Clarke Enterprises threatens to take away everything Rory has worked so hard for. Can the couple weather the storm and surrender to each other, or will the challenges of staying together destroy their relationship for good?
Surrendering to Usis the second book in the Surrendering Saga by Chelsea Cameron. I was pleasantly surprised by both books. The best way to describe these books is 75% guilty pleasure and 25% pure melted gooiness. Obviously, Lucah makes up the all the gooiness.
In the second book, Lucah’s secret has been exposed and now he is working at Clarke Enterprises, but in a different department. Lucah and Rory are now living together and sexing it up almost every other page, until Lucah’s past brings a visitor back into their lives and their place. Also, there is some extra drama at Clarke Enterprises that lends itself as the back story to this novel.
One thing I need to get off my chest is my irritation with Sloane, Rory’s best bud. I think that if I was Lucah I would’ve gotten a bit more irritated with her and her neediness. I understand these girls are close, but dear Lord, Sloane needed to get a bit of a grip. Ok, I feel better now….thanks! As for Rory, I think she stayed true to her character in this book. I completely heart her, she is freaking hysterical, is a great friend, and a boss I would totally want to work for. She pretty much seems to put up with no bull-sh*t when it comes to the business world, and I think that sets a positive role for working women. I have to say, I do think her and Lucah’s relationship is something that is actually believable in the real world; not sure how their sex breaks in the middle of the day in the supply room can actually happen, but it does feed my guilty pleasure like I said earlier. Then there is Lucah, oh sweet Lucah. I liked how you learned a lot more about Lucah’s back story and how that molded him into the man that he is today. He is still the sexy God that he was in the first book, but Ms. Cameron added depth to his character in this book. Plus, I need to give the author a shout-out for using the one song I wanted to see mentioned in a book, “Come to Me” by The Goo Goo Dolls. As sappy as it is, I actually got goosebumps during that scene.
All in all, this was an enjoyable book and I cannot wait for the third book in the series. This book is not about Lucah and Rory, but about Ryder and Sloane.
