Surrender to Me by Ashley Piscitelli

Rebecca Chase has never been interested in dating, and definitely not in relationships. She only had two goals in life, to get her college degree and to get the hell away from her house. When she meets Lucas everything that she thought she had wanted was now turned upside down.

Lucas Masterson has it all money, fame, and his dream job of being in the music industry. He knows that most people are just out for themselves and will use him as much as they can. When he meets Becca he realizes that he never really knew what he wanted. He thinks that she is the most amazing person he has ever met, but can he balance her and his crazy life?

 Can two people who come from completely different worlds make it work or will the people trying to tear them apart succeed?

Get ready to get lost in this crazy romantic adventure and surrender yourself to Lucas and Becca.

After I finished Surrender to Me, I was unsure how I should rate it. I enjoyed the story but there were some things that bugged me about it. Let me tell you what I liked. The writing style and the storyline were really good. Surrender to Me has plenty of angst and I absolutely love angst! It wasn't over the top angst though, it was really believable drama that I could see happening with a rock star. I really liked the characters, well except for Samantha, that bitch was cray cray!

What didn't work for me. The instant love connection. That is one thing that really bugs me in books, one meeting and you can't live without the other. I need more than a couple interactions to determine love. I felt there needed to be more interactions between Rebecca and Luke, more heart to heart moments or just getting to know each other better.

I am giving Surrender to Me 3.5 stars, because the story was enjoyable and had angst. And I absolutely LOVE  the cover!! And I'm a strong believer that just because a book doesn't' work for me doesn't mean it won't for you. If you can handle the insta-love it's really a good book!
