I'm just an average 22 year old college student, currently living in Iowa. I love fiction books, mostly romance.
The second novel in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor series made me tear up. Surrender My Love is a relatable story with well developed characters.
It's scary how easy one event, accusation, or rumor could completely turn your life upside down.
Annalise "Leesa" Avalon's life is in shambles after a student she's been helping makes claims about how she's acted around him. After weeks of her life being invaded during an investigation, placed on leave, relationships destroyed, and friendships tested.
Now Annalise must find some order in the mess that's been made. Escaping to a new town and going by the name Leesa, Annalise must try to find herself or who she truly wants to be. Waiting for the bomb to drop of someone recognizing her get tiring, especially after she meets Cole. Now Annalise "Leesa" has to worry about her past affecting more than just her.
Cole Braden is the eldest of the Braden brothers. He's the one who has taught and encourage his younger siblings that family and loyalty come first. He cares deeply for his family and for his patients. Since meeting Leesa, the workaholic doctor has found that living life is just as important as him work.
My favorite part of the Braden novels is seeing their family interact. I love how close nit and caring they are for one another. They love to tease each other, yet the loyalty and love they have for each other runs deep.
Two people who have very similar values and interest can fall deeply in love fast. Annalise must deal with her present issues to determine if there's a possible loving future with Cole. The way Annalise faces her situation left me tearing up.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
