Let me start by saying I was drawn to this book, simply by the fact that the leading lady, Robyn was a stripper and I was intrigued as to how the love story would play out and let's face it, I had hoped that we'd have some incredibly erotic scenes.

Now I'm pretty torn with this book. On one hand we have an incredible story. Whilst we have everything I look for in a great read, Suspense, Passion, Heartache, a great villain, somewhere along the way these things were diluted.

The book at times felt more like I was reading a list and the emotional aspects just didn't shine through. Garrick, an ex Mechanical Engineer and now Head of Security at Devil's Den, should have been an incredible character and whilst I get that he is hot, I didn't feel much of his personality shine through. I also understood that he wasn't overly keen on Robyn's profession as a stripper and being Head of Security, it meant he had to watch her get naked and entertain the customers at the strip joint. He seemed ok with other men seeing her body and the only time he intervened was when a customer touched her.

The sex scenes themselves did feel a little rushed and again felt more like a list of events which meant I had to work harder with my imagination.

There were a few other minor issues and inconsistencies within the story, but if I'm completely honest, I couldn't put the book down, because the storyline itself was that good.

I genuinely believe with some more depth to the characters, this could be one amazing book.

3 - "Texas Boys do it right." Stars.

Whilst I liked Surrender I didn’t love it. Garrick and Robyn had an interesting dynamic and I liked the parts of the book when they were together and dealing with their issues in order to build a relationship. Garrick is dominant, possessive and has a definite way with words and actions. Robyn although working in an environment that belies one thing, is actually pretty much the opposite of all the expectations you would have for a woman in her situation, those aspects together made me keep reading. What I found detracted from that were all the side plots and random characters that were thrown at the story.

”I’m glad you’ve found me.”

There were a couple of tropes that carried enough weight to them, that should have been explored more, rather than having lots of little things added, for me it just made the story all sorts of scrappy, jumping from this, to that, then to something else, but never really offering the level of depth I was looking for.

The writing style is easy to immerse yourself in and I did like the story, plenty (if not too much) of drama, interesting sexy-times and dual POV, I just think it could have done with a little more focus, and less of a cut & dried ending.

Surrender is the first book in the Devil’s Den series, its successor Seduction is due, mid-March. This is my first book by this author, and although I am uncertain as to whether I will read any more books from this series, I would be interested to read something with a different setting, tropes and characters by Violetta Rand in the future.

HASH(0x8f523be8) out of 5 stars Surrender: A Devil's Den Novel 9 Feb. 2015
By Jessica Alcazar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying that I really DID enjoy reading this and I WILL read more of this series, but the storyline and characters bordered more on fantasy land than fiction. It was REALLY hard for me to swallow an MIT graduate as head of security for a Strip Club, for starters. Then there's the stripper that is double majoring in archeology and history. REALLY? ok, it COULD happen but REALLY?! lol .... So you gotta get past that to enjoy the story and I did (but I'm still laughing about it ... of all the majors .... still laughing).
Plot in a nutshell: Robyn (stripper) has a pretty f*d up background. Her mother threw her out at 15 and she's been fending for herself ever since. She doesn't take crap from anyone and doesn't hesitate to throw a punch or two if someone gets to touchy at work. She runs into a little trouble with a drug dealer and in comes Garrik (MIT grad turn head of security for strip club) to save the day. It's insta LUST from moment one but somewhere down the line in turns to love.
The story is sexually charged from the start. Despite the little 'fantasy land' things I've mentioned, I was hooked on this story from page one. Violetta Rand is very creative in her wording and development of a story. And honestly, we could not have asked for a better hero than Garrik for this story. He's an alpha protective male yet allows Robyn the flexibility of her job without fits of jealousy. I'm looking forward to A LOT more from the Devil's Den!

HASH(0x8f523a44) out of 5 stars An exciting debute to what promises to be a great series. 27 Jan. 2015
By Barbara Babbage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It isn't easy for a young woman from a turbulent background to survive on her own. But Robyn Gonzalez is determined finish college and to write her own destiny; despite what sometimes feel like insurmountable odds. Working the poles at a Texas strip club is not the career little girls fantasize about, but for Robyn it pays the bills and provides the base from which her dreams could come true. When Robyn sees a drug deal gone bad and becomes the target of a powerful drug lord, things go from bad to worse.

Enter Garrick Dempsey, the handsome, debonair head of the Devil's Den security. A wealthy, alpha-male from the right side of the tracks, who once he sees Robyn wants her more than his next breath. He sees beyond her strong, independent façade and sets his sights on winning her heart and protecting her at all cost.

If you want to know more, read the book. You won't be disappointed.

I don't usually read contemporary or new adult romance, but found the premise of this story intriguing. I am a fan of Violetta Rand's historical Viking romances and after reading the first chapter of this book, I was hooked. Ms. Rand has a unique way of capturing a reader's attention and not letting go until the last words are spoken and the final page is turned. Well written and fast paced, Surrender is a hot, sensually charged book, an emotional rollercoaster that will leave you wanting more. With a strong cast of supporting characters waiting in the wings, I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

HASH(0x8ed800e4) out of 5 stars Hard won happily ever after 28 Jan. 2015
By Collette Cameron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Truthfully, I don't read a lot of contemporary romance, my preference being historicals, But, I've read Violetta's historicals and know what a splendid author she is. I was pretty sure she'd written something splendid, and I was right.

Not for the faint of heart, Surrender sizzles off the pages. So, have a glass of something ice-cold nearby and perhaps a fan and towel as well.

The romance that develops between Garrick and Robyn is wonderfully portrayed, but more importantly, gripping and real. Violetta takes you deep into their heads, their emotions, and you can't help but feel for both of them.

Here's Garrick, everything that makes for a hunky hero: sexy, built like a Greek God, strong and confident, but not arrogant, and just a decent-all-around-guy.

Meet Robyn, whose family life has left her scarred and distrustful. She's been on her own since she was fifteen, and she dances to pay the bills and put herself through school.

These two opposites should never have met, let alone enter into a romance that seems sure to fail. Their journey to happily-ever-after is hard won, but so worth the read.

Did I mention you might need to take a cold shower after reading their story?

I can't wait to see the other books in this series.

A solid 4.5 rating.

HASH(0x8ecefd2c) out of 5 stars an EPIC start to a new series......... 28 Jan. 2015
By Debbie Lou M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
From the first few pages I was hooked. My first thoughts were " Violetta has written an EPIC first book in a new series". After reading the book, I knew it was true. Robyn, who is the top stripper at The Devil's Den, is working to pay for her living and education. Being at the wrong place, at the wrong time, she overhears a local drug dealer threatening a friend. When she runs from him, she runs into Garrick.

Robyn being a strong, independent woman who is goal orientated to achieve her desire of an education. Garrick, a former engineer, is the tall, rich, strong type who has a sensitive side and protective of those he cares for. He is also the new head security at The Devil’s Den.

From the moment Robyn bumped into Garrick, he knew he wanted her in his life. As their relationship grew closer, Robyn's ugly past with her family tries to interfere with her present life. Add the haunting of the drug dealer, and the intensity increases. Just as Robyn finds happiness, she wonders if her relationship with Garrick will survive.

After reading this first book of The Devil's Den series, I know I will be reading the next two books due out in this series. This is a well written book, that gives you an exciting ride while reading. From page to page, you will be held in suspense of how Robyn and Garrick’s story will end. This is a book I wanted to peek at the end to see how it ends.

HASH(0x8f1fdf48) out of 5 stars " At first I didn't like Garrick. The way he spoke to Robyn bothered ... 27 Jan. 2015
By Brittany Strickland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*I received this ARC for free in exchange for an honest review*

Robyn's kicked her out of the house causing her to grow up at a young age. This left her strong, determined, and a little vulnerable. She's definitely not what you think of as a typical stripper. Garrick is an alpha male who isn't afraid to show Robyn his softer side. From the moment they meet, their chemistry is electric.
"My arm brushes against hers. Skin on skin. Something sparks, and I look down at her. She catches my glance, then quickly averts her eyes."
At first I didn't like Garrick. The way he spoke to Robyn bothered me. This book is written from both of their perspectives and if it wasn't for that, I'm not sure I would have liked Garrick. There are some things that he does for Robyn though that made me want to make him my book boyfriend. I love how he doesn't rush to sleep with her.

"'Will you trust me?' Her hands slip up my waist, stopping on my chest. 'With what?' 'Time,' I say. And you..."
I'll admit that I wasn't sure this was gonna be a book I liked with the setting being in a strip club. However, I will definitely be reading the rest of this series as it comes out.
