Surrendering to Us Blog Tour - #review & #giveaway

Surrendering to Us by Chelsea M. Cameron

January 2014

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?

My Review...

I did like the first book....... So I wanted to read more. For some reason I thought this book was going to be more about Sloane and Ryder because I wasn't sure how much more Lucah and Rory there could be.

This book basically picks up briefly after where the last book left off with Lucah now working for Clarke industries but in a different department than Rory AKA Ms. Clarke.  Lucha and Rory  are making their way with their new relationship.  As they get into their relationship groove things seem pretty smooth but you know that's not going to last too long.  Throughout the book NO MATTER what story line was going on the one constant was there was a whole lot of this going on...

Rory is trying to find her way at work without Lucah to help her. Now she has a new assistant and a new hire who happens to be a blast from Lucah's past.  With this story line I thought it was going to be more scandalous then it actually was.  With the way this part of the story played out I was more let down then anything. 

I liked having more Sloan and Ryder in this book as I feel like it needed more than just Rory and Lucah and with this I'm now more intrigued to continue the series to see how that story line is going to pan out.

In the end I did like the story, it took me a bit to get into but I am torn thinking did we need a whole other book on Lucah and Rory or could we have done with just a big epilogue in the first book.

In the end it was cute but at times predictable and very repetitive.
