review || SURRENDERING TO ALWAYS { blog tour } by Chelsea M. Cameron

Self-Published | October 6, 2015 | New Adult Romance
Surrender Saga, book 4


They’re about to walk down the aisle, but more than one obstacle is standing in their way…

Rory Clarke didn’t want to get married until she was at least thirty. But then she hired sexy redheaded, chin-dimpled Lucah Blythe as her assistant at Clarke Enterprises and everything changed. She’s finally agreed to set a wedding date and plans are well underway. Rory's definitely starting to see the perks of being engaged and she couldn’t be happier. As long as everything goes her way, of course.

That is until not one, but two huge surprises rock her world, putting everything she’s planned in jeopardy. Her job, the wedding, the future she planned for herself. Lucah is there for her no matter what, but trusting someone else isn’t always easy, even if you love them more than anything.

Her road to the alter is a rough one, but will Rory decide it’s not worth the struggle to get there? Or will she take Lucah’s hand and throw herself into their future together?

Things are starting to happen for Rory and Lucah in this epilogue of their story -- and not all of the things are exactly as Rory has planned. From surprise dresses to baby fever, and even further yet to business plans, all Rory and Lucah are trying to do is get to the end of the aisle.

If you hadn't guessed, please remember that this is the fourth of a continual series. There are three books ahead of this one that map out Lucah and Rory's journey; this is simply the pages before "the end". I knew this and hadn't read the previous books -- which I'm totally cool with. I'm an epilogue reader, after all. And like when I read every other book, I've now read the epilogue and will happily read the beginning ;)

I truly enjoyed Lucah and Rory in this installment of their story. Told in Rory's voice, you see the world as she sees it; you see the love Lucah has for her, you see the plans she has for her professional life, you see the joy she has with the idea of marrying Lucah. I love the friendships she has, and I love the way she loves Lucah. And gosh, I love his post-it notes.

Chelsea M. Cameron writes new adult beautifully. I rarely find flaws in her style -- the plots make sense, the dialogue feels read, the characters could be your own friends. Some of her works are better than others, and I feel that this saga is one of her better ones (...judging off my favorite part of a book, of course). You feel the love, the fear, the anxiety, the questions that Rory feels in SURRENDERING TO ALWAYS. I have no doubt that I will go back and read the first three in Rory and Lucah's story (...even if book three belongs to another new favorite red-head and Rory's good friend)!
