ARC Book Review and Giveaway: Surrender My Love (The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor #2) by Melissa Foster

NEW RELEASE........ 
Book #2 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Love in Bloom 
Fall in love with Cole Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love. 

In SURRENDER MY LOVE... Annalise "Leesa" Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush--and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step. From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He's a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there's a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart--and a painful past--but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore. A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs--and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him? SURRENDER MY LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While SURRENDER MY LOVE can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

ARC Book Review
Surrender My Love is the second book in The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor series but the first that I have read and the fourteenth book in Love in Bloom: The Bradens series. Despite being part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.

As is the case with majority of books by Melissa Foster, this one too had me stopping because of the catchy title, an eye catching cover and a blurb that instantly caught my attention.

I enjoyed meeting the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor who are a boisterous lot and fell in love with Cole Braden. He is a smooth talker and seems a flirt initially but then his character is developed and brought out fully to be that of a serious, family oriented and one-woman man who is a workaholic, a book lover (this point definitely earned him extra brownie points from me) and still waiting for "The One". This book narrates Cole's story and had me excitedly cheering for him all through.

Annalise's history had me empathizing with her and then seriously giving thought to the ramifications of one careless accusation made by someone in one's life. Annalise or Leesa is a strong character and her struggle to get back her life and find closure had me admiring her. The romance buildup between Leesa and Cole is brought out beautifully and feels true and heartfelt.

The plot execution is expertly done as can be expected from Melissa and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and meeting such lovely characters that stay with you long after you have completed the book. I am eager to meet these lovely characters again soon!

All in all, Surrender My Love is a lovely and heartfelt romance that had me entertained all through. I give it 4.5 out of 5 and recommend it to all romance lovers above the age of eighteen. Now that I have finished this book, I am eager to start on the first book in this series, Healed by Love and look forward to reading the subsequent books in the series.

Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love. Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive. THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.
