After finding herself out of luck and out of love, Patricia Jacobs has written off the male species. No one but her father has ever given her the love and devotion she knows she deserves, and she’s sick and tired of it. Until she collides, literally, with a man whose devastating smile and seductive charm that should be considered illegal, destroys her plans. He’s everything she’s ever dreamed of in a man: handsome, intelligent, successful, they share a love of cars and best of all; he looks at her like she’s his light in the dark. What more could a girl ask for?
Jonathon Bradshaw, destroyed by a past that has haunted his every waking moment for the last five years, isn’t looking for a serious relationship, until he meets Patricia. Sweet, saucy and as hot as the summer is long, Jon can’t deny the draw he has toward her. For the first time, he has hope. Determined to shake the ghosts of his past, Jon focuses on forging a future with Patti, but he’s always been a master at standing in his own way.
When Jon’s past refuses to be forgotten, will Patti be able to live with the truth about the man who’s stolen her heart?
5 of 5 Surrender To Love
J.C. Valentine never ever ceases to amaze me with her writing! She is just simply amazing and I can't get enough of her characters that seem to come to life off of the pages as you are reading. You can feel the emotions running through each character and you can't help but wonder what is going to happen next. I have to say as the series progresses each and every character has their flaws and hangups but they soon find that happiness they deserve.
J.C. quoted it right in the opening of Surrender To Love when she quoted “Never be afraid of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.” ~Unknown
For Patti she misses her father everyday. She is in a rut with guys because she keeps picking these loser cheating mofo's. She has finally had it with her last boyfriend who she finds in bed with some other girl when he said he was working late. As if that was not the icing on the cake she is let go from her job where she has worked a long time. So depressed and staying at home not sure what to do Patti's friends make her go out to a club where she bumps into a guy at the bar. He is handsome and they exchange names and he helps her bring the drinks to the table where her friends are waiting. As soon as he approaches the table with her some of her friends recognize him as their boss and begin to talk to him. Then as they are talking two women approach the guy and ask him what he is doing because they have been waiting for him. As he looks at Patti again he realizes that she has a look of disgust on her face and does not look at him again. Patti refuses to look at Jon because she has sworn of cheating lying bastards for good and she refuses to budge on that. But there is something about Jon that draws her to him.
Jon is such a man whore doing what he wants when he wants with girls and getting away with it because they want a piece of him any way they can get it. He is living his life like a bachelor who does not care about anything except liquor and women. He is at the bar getting ready to have drinks when he sees Patti and is intrigued by her. He wants to get to know her and he starts to talk to her forgetting about the two girls he has waiting for him. But soon his wanting to get to know Patti is interrupted by the two girls he brought to the bar and he sees the look of disgust on Patti's face and he can't seem to comprehend it. He wants to go to her but she looks at him with a stern look and he halts in his tracks because he knows that look so well.
As time passes Jon can't get Patti out of his mind and he wants her. He is not sure why but he does and he is determined to get her. As Patti thinks back to the gorgeous guy at the bar she is curious about him but she does not want to get hurt again so she guards her heart with everything she has. Can these two overcome their hurts to let each other in or will Patti keep Jon far away from her heart? This is such a must read story that had me laughing and crying and rooting for this couple because they clearly love each other but the past has a funny way of ruining the future. Will Jon's past ruin the future........
