Surrender by Violetta Rand Review + Giveaway


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.

Virgin + Stripper = Four and one half LEAVES Review

Robyn Gonzalez has been through a lot. Since the age of fifteen, Robyn has been on her own.  With mental and emotional abuse from her mother; she has been taking care of herself.  In order to survive she has been working as a stripper at the Devil's Den strip club. However, Robyn isn't your typical stripper. She is determined, smart, and a virgin! She is putting herself through college to have a better and brighter future. Oh did I mention, she is a virgin?
Garrick becomes Robyn's knight and shining armor when she is thrust into danger the night of her birthday. Garrick is rich, an alpha male and knows he just has to have Robyn. He is also the new head of security for the strip club.    The chemistry between the two is intense from the very beginning and neither can explain it.  Garrick has trouble accepting Robyn's profession. They both have to learn to accept and rely on each other for their relationship to work out. 

Surrender moves along at a fast pace. I thought it felt like their feelings and romance were rushed for the story as well as the ending.  This is a stellar book from Violetta Rand and I will with out a doubt read the next two books in this series.  The book had everything I love for a good book: a little dark, a virgin, a hot alpha male, and some pretty hot sexy scenes. The story comes together and was created to be a story of survival and finding yourself.
