Rachel Van Dyken is going to leave Surrender at $2.99 for a SPECIAL release week price! 

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the next standalone rockstar romance in her Seaside Pictures series…

Surrender is now live!


I had his posters on my wall when I was sixteen and when I accidentally got pregnant in high school—his was the face I dreamt of when I closed my eyes at night.

Now, over twenty years later, that dream’s turned into a reality.

Not only is Drew Amhurst in my tiny town of Seaside, live and in the flesh…

But he’s mentoring my rockstar son.

Drew says he’s mine for a week.

And he made me three promises.

“No strings attached.”

“No falling in love.”

“It’s only seven days.”

He’s confident that he can help me rediscover myself both in and out of the bedroom, and I’m confident that he’s too arrogant for his own good.

And at the end of seven days, he swears he’ll walk out of my life the way he came into it.

The only problem is, the more I get to know him, the more I want to surrender the last pieces of my heart and beg him to stay.

My review of Surrender

Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

Terrific Rockstar Romance!

This was a wonderful romance between a Rockstar and a mother who hasn’t had enough fun in her life. I really liked the fact that the heroine Bronte, had her first child at sixteen years old so she was really a grown up way too soon. She completely missed that fun part of life when you are young and having all the fun with little responsibility.

Along comes the Hero Drew Amherst, who is nearly the same age as her and has been a rockstar since he was young. Bronte actually had a huge crush on him when she was in high school and now her grown son is his protégée. Bronte’s son Braden was discovered by Drew and is now a rock star in his own right and has recently gotten married.

Bronte also has a daughter away at college and an teenage daughter, Amelia at home who had cancer. They are about to find out if the cancer has returned or is still in remission. Bronte’s ex husband never really loved her and was forced by his parents to marry her. So he cheated on her during their entire marriage and divorced her when the kids were young and is not a part of their lives.

Bronte is the kind of woman who has always had to rely on her self and has never really been in love and had someone love her back and want to take care of her. I see a lot of myself in her, since (aside from the child with cancer), I had basically the same background. Boy would I love a rockstar to start paying attention to me like Drew paid to Bronte.

Drew is a recovering drug addict and has been clean for over three years, but he is lonely. All of his band mates have been getting married and having young children and he is the only one who is still alone. He is also having a bit of writers block while he should be writing their next album.

He sees Bronte, whom he has been crushing on since he first met her. Braden is going on a belated honeymoon during the week of Bronte’s birthday so he asks Drew to watch over his Mom and take her out for a good time. Though both Drew and Bronte know that he is only in town for a week, Bronte agrees to go out with him during that week and try to let her worries go and have some fun for once in her life. What happens from there is a sweet and steamy week of fun, sun, horseback riding, picnics, hot kisses and more.

I also liked the fact that her daughter Amelia played a big part in the book. She was funny and her interactions with drew were priceless. I don’t always like books where the women are mothers because sometimes the children are just in the way of the story, but this one was great.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
