front-and-back-coverTitle: Surrendering

Author: Michelle Horst

Genre:  Coming of Age/Second Chance Romance

Release: February 2, 2017



Liam Wright is the playboy at college. He’s part of the screw-crew.

It’s better to stay away from him, but you can’t tell your heart what to want.

He’ll judge me.

He won’t understand.

It’s easy to judge someone because of their past. I’m scared Liam will be just like all the other people.

But he doesn’t judge me. He comes into my life and refuses to leave. He doesn’t give up on me.

He helps me accept the guilt that lives inside of me, because it also lives inside of him.

We’re both damaged by the past.

We’re both looking for someone who will understand.

We’re both looking for someone we can surrender to.

But it’s hard surrendering all your broken pieces.

My Review :

(This book is not for sensitive readers, 18+)

I give this book 5/5 stars!!! This book is heartbreaking but it is full of strength and perseverance.  

In this book you have Mila and Liam.

At age 14, Mila escaped a cult that she had grown up in before being forced to be married but had to leave her little sister behind.

At age 16, Liam got out of a cult that his mother married into after his sister killed herself because she was going to be married off to an older man.

Years later, they meet at college but neither one knows about the others past. Liam is outgoing and a playboy, part of the “screw-crew” and Mila is quiet and keeps to herself. After Mila has a run in with another boy, Liam jumps into help her. Liam has secretly always liked Mila and finally tells her but Mila is scared because she doesn’t want her past to come back and hurt Liam.

Can two people whose pasts are so alike but so different find peace and love? Or will their  pasts be what tears them apart?


I loved this read. Michelle out did herself on this one. This story is full of heartbreak, love, death, sorrow, happiness, forgiveness. I loved Liam and how he only wanted the best for Mila. I loved how Mila always fought for what she wanted (not going to tell what she is fighting for), even when it was hard and even when others told her she couldn’t.

I knew this story would talk about some topics that can be difficult to discuss but those books don’t bother me at all. I think Michelle did an amazing job at telling both stories and the way she tied their stories together was fantastic. This story was beautifully written and touched my heart.
