Tracey’s Review

In this fourth episode of the ‘Deep Surrendering’ series by Chelsea Cameron, Marisol and Fin are back, and they’re still as hot and crazy as ever.

The feelings between Marisol and Fin have continued to grow. Now that they’ve been able to really get to know and accept each other for who they are, they are doing their best to have an actual relationship. There are still secrets in Fin’s past, but as he and Marisol grow more deeply involved, those things are revealed, things that make Fin the person that he is today.

I am really enjoying this series. The storyline flows nicely from one serial installment to the next, and it’s very easy to keep up. As well, I feel more and more attached to Marisol and Fin, and invested in their story. Fin is still all sorts of messed up, despite Marisol’s love and support. Even with all that he has materially, he has not had an easy time of things in his life, and my heart goes out to him. Watching him fight to break down the walls that he’s built to protect himself, with Marisol’s help, makes me hopeful that they’ll finally get their happily ever after. Not that it’s going to be easy to get there, because it wouldn’t be an a angsty romance without some trials along the way. Add to the romance and angst some super-hot sexy times, and I cannot wait until Episode 5 comes out so that we can see what’s in store for these two.

Excerpt

He’ll um, be right down. Please take a seat,” she said, gesturing to the leather chairs. “May I get you anything, Miss Everly?” Oh, now that she knew who I was, she was going to be nice to me? That didn’t make me feel very good.

No, thank you,” I said, my voice cool as I went to take a seat and wait for Fin. I patted myself on the back for deciding that showing up wearing just a trench coat and nothing else was a bad idea. The receptionist would have seen right through that and probably would have thrown me out before I could even ask for Fin.

I heard him coming down the hall before I saw him.

Marisol? What are you doing here?” He was bewildered and concerned and shocked. I’d kind of hoped for excited.

My eyes flicked to the girl at the desk, who was pretending to be immersed in her work but was clearly eavesdropping.

I came to see you and ask if you’ll have dinner with me tonight.”

Summary

Marisol’s days with Fin are dwindling and they still haven’t discussed where they stand, and that’s not the only thing Marisol doesn’t know about him. They’ve continued to trade secrets for sex, but when Fin reveals one particularly traumatic secret, will Marisol be able to handle it? Or is it better call it quits before she falls even deeper?

Excerpt

“I’m sorry. I didn’t intend to do that tonight. Or ever,” he said after we moved to the couch. We were still entwined, our fingers twisted together and my head resting on his chest.
“It’s okay. We don’t seem to be following the normal couple patterns anyway. And who wants to be normal? I’d rather be abnormal,” I said, tipping my head up to look into his eyes.

“I like your kind of abnormal. Mine is … something else. Aren’t you afraid?”
I sat up. “Of what?”

“Of me. And don’t just shake your head and tell me what you think I want to hear.” His hands clutched mine, hard.

I had to think for a minute to find the right words. To explain something that was, well, a little hard to put into words.

Deep Surrendering by Chelsea M. Cameron Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway


DS2_BlogTour

DS1_Cover
When Fin ran out on Marisol, leaving her naked on her couch, she swore she was done with him. There was no way she would forgive him, let alone see him again. But fate, or something else, had different ideas, and she ran into him again the very next day.

Instead of hating his guts and wanting him to die, Marisol finds that’s she’s still attracted to Fin. She just can’t get him out of her system. Maybe if they had one night together? Just one night and she could get over him. But will that be enough?

Tracey’s Review – 4 Stars

Since meeting Fintan Herald, Marisol Everly’s life has changed. She’s doing things she never thought she’d do, allowing things she swore she would never allow, and it’s one heck of a crazy ride.

Marisol and Fin were introduced by their mutual friends, who thought that they would make a great match. Their attraction to each other is immediate and intense, and Fin quickly sweeps Marisol off her feet, complete with romantic gestures and a hot sexy demeanor. Then, just as quickly as he began to pursue her, Fin backs off, telling her that his secrets are too dark, and that he is no good for her.

‘Deep Surrendering’ is written as a serial, and Episode 2 picks up immediately following the action in Episode 1. Fin has left Marisol in the absolute heat of the moment, running away just when things were at their most intense. She is shocked, angry, humiliated, and adamant that she is DONE with his craziness. The only problem? She can’t get over her attraction to him, darkness and craziness notwithstanding. Determined to get him out of her system, she invites him to finish what they started, so that she can move on. Fin, unable to get over Marisol as well, agrees, but as they move forward in their relationship, they find themselves unable to be apart, and real feelings begin to develop.

I found the idea of an episodic series interesting, wondering how the story would flow from one book to the next without losing steam. Chelsea Cameron has done an excellent job of keeping the reader interested and invested in Marisol and Fin. The story is told from Marisol’s POV (although both episodes have a bonus POV from Fin), and she is great. She’s smart, sassy, and doesn’t take crap from anyone, which makes her relationship with Fin such a departure for her. Her inner dialogue is a riot, and had me laughing out loud. As well, the secondary characters, especially Marisol’s BFF Chloe, are hilarious, and really add to the story. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Marisol and Fin, and will definitely have Episode 3 at the top of my TBR.
