After finding herself out of luck and out of love, Patricia Jacobs has written off the male species. No one but her father has ever given her the love and devotion she knows she deserves, and she’s sick and tired of it. Until she collides, literally, with a man whose devastating smile and seductive charm that should be considered illegal, destroys her plans. He’s everything she’s ever dreamed of in a man: handsome, intelligent, successful, they share a love of cars and best of all; he looks at her like she’s his light in the dark. What more could a girl ask for?
Jonathon Bradshaw, destroyed by a past that has haunted his every waking moment for the last five years, isn’t looking for a serious relationship, until he meets Patricia. Sweet, saucy and as hot as the summer is long, Jon can’t deny the draw he has toward her. For the first time, he has hope. Determined to shake the ghosts of his past, Jon focuses on forging a future with Patti, but he’s always been a master at standing in his own way.
When Jon’s past refuses to be forgotten, will Patti be able to live with the truth about the man who’s stolen her heart?

"If she loves you, you'll find a way to get through it. But, Jon, the problem here isn't her, it's you." He looked out across the yard at their women. "At some point you have to forgive yourself and move on. You have to surrender everything, your past, your present, your future. If you want to be happy, you're going to have to let go and surrender to love and trust that it's strong enough to carry you through the worst so you can find your way through to the best."
❥My Review:

Surrender to Love is the third book in the Night Calls Series. However it can be read as a stand-alone.

Patti is cheated on by her boyfriend and she loses her job all in the same week. Falling into depression, her BFF decides she's in dire need of a girl's night out. 
That night at the bar, she meets Jon. 
Jon never fails to have at least one skank with him. He has random sex with no attachments, because it's just easier that way. He carries a heavy amount of guilt after a tragic event from his past changed his life. 
As much as he wants to keep that lifestyle, he can't help but be drawn to Patti.
Even though Patti's been hurt several times before, she has a deep urge to pursue things with Jon. 

The story read smoothly and while there were some deep emotional aspects, it was an easy read. There was also a nice touch of sex and humor within the book. There were moments when the story seemed to slow down but I felt like those moments were necessary. Overall it was well-placed and had good character development.

This was my first book in the series. I liked J.C.'s writing style and I will definitely be reading the other books in the series.
