I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a f--king clue. Now I'm in the fight of my life to win over the woman who owns my soul. - Finn Black
The face of an angel...
The heart of a saint...
One look, one smile, and I didn't stand a chance. The instant my eyes landed on Presley Chambers, I was a goner. She was a force of nature that turned my world upside down. Sweet, sassy, and sexy as hell, she brought me to my knees.
But she isn't just any woman, she's a gift, she's a goddess, she's my disease...and I'll fight like hell to erase her fears.
Sometimes fate has other plans. Now our future is in her hands.
I can only hope she'll give us the chance we both deserve.
The idea that someone could possess me was insane...until I met Finn Black. - Presley Chambers
The face of Adonis...
The heart of a hero...
Finn Black infiltrated my safe world the minute he breathed my name. He broke down my barriers and convinced me to take a chance. For the first time ever, I was living my life with a man who promised me a future only dreams are made of.
Sometimes the line between love and longing is tested.
He's asked me to trust him, to trust us, but the fear of losing him became too much.
Now I must decide if I'm willing to take a leap of faith - and hope he'll be there to catch me.

"Finn Black is TOTAL SWOON MATERIAL!"
This is a TRUE LOVE STORY. If ur looking for hearts & flowers, IT'S HERE!!!
"SO GOOD I COULD LISTEN TO IT ALL OVER AGAIN"
Finn, ahhh Finn (aka Hero)... he's the whole package - swoon-worthy, sexy, protective, caring, alpha in the bedroom, has charm and a tender heart and he's ex Military - who now works in security along with some of his fellow ex Marines. It's a close band of brothers who care deeply for each other and have been through Hell together - some of them have partners but some are still single like Finn... until he sees the gorgeous Presley. They soon find out their attraction to each other isn't the only thing they have in common when Finn attends a funeral for a fallen soldier and friend. And suddenly the very cautious and always 'play it safe' Presley finds her life turned upside down when she falls madly and hopelessly in love with a man who regularly puts himself in dangerous and deadly situations.
It's an instant attraction and pretty much an instant everything else but this couple are so sweet and right for each other that they just clicked from the start and I've got zero issues with that. But the problems come in their all consuming relationship when Presley is faced with just how dangerous Finn's job actually is and she realizes that she has a decision to make.... a decision that leaves both of them broken hearted. There's also angst and drama from one of the wives who doesn't like Presley getting so close to someone she's got a history with - which causes a few arguments, heated words, misunderstandings and tears.
There were great characters in this book and some of them seemed to have their own love stories to be told - but alas there's no books yet in Ahren Sanders Surrender Trilogy so I'm prepared to start to beg Audible stat. Apart from the characters and the close, loving, supportive families on both Finn and Presley's side, their love story was a joy to listen to because there were no secrets, no stupid dramas, no cheating and no destructive behaviour. It was love love love all the way.... well with toe curling amounts of sex too between two wonderful characters who were just perfect for each other... even if it did take a breakup before they truly understood and total accepted each other.
Worth a credit? Great dual POV story, an interesting group of secondary characters, a hero and heroine who were just perfect and a well written sexy and touching love story that I just didn't want to end. Good narration - an enjoyable and awesome listen, a 5 star rating and, IMO, a very creditworthy purchase.
"Loved it but Is it really a stand alone??"
Let me start by saying this should not be a stand alone book. I listened to this book and about 1/2 through I stopped to go research to make sure it wasn't part of a series and I had just missed that. There are too many side characters and too many references to what happened to each of them in the past for this to feel like a stand alone. I finally was told by someone that the author has a series called Surrender that has all of these same characters and the Finn plays a large roll in those book so I know now why I was so confused. That being said I would have given this book 5 stars but I didn't because I felt like I was missing something the entire time I was listening to it. Honestly I think starting with Finn (the only one on Audio) actually hurt this story for me because I didn't like some of the side characters and if I had started with the series I probably would have liked them because I would have understood their actions.
Ok Back to this book... I really enjoyed this story. The relationship started out a little too "insta-love" for my taste but the author was able to make it believable which isn't an easy thing IMHO. This was a beautiful love story between a scared and insecure girl and a sweet but over protective guy who knows his own heart which was a wonderful change for me! I'd love more on this group of friends and hope that the rest of these books will be released on audio so I can start from the beginning. I really want to hear Declan and Raven's story as well as Robbie and Ember!
Great narration too!
"My favorite book to date "
personally I love this book .... with that being said ..... I would've been happier if Raven would have been handled harsher .... this is Finn and Presley story so piss on Raven!
I have to say, I read A LOT, I want to thank you for focusing on aspects of service and the service families.
Wonderful storyline and great characters. I love the names used.
Finn is an incredible man. He's a student, a vet, and a beloved friend. He works for his best friend's family. He is prefect...
Unless you like plain and boring, then perhaps look elsewhere.
I really enjoyed the story but I have to say...listening to that husky voice whispering in your ear is hot. Part of me wanted to smack Presley during her chapters because I'd rather listen to Finn. Honestly though, they both did a great job. I love listening while running errands. This let me do both!
Great story, lively actors, and a lot of fun.
It's my new favorite book!!!! I plan on listening to it all over again and soon !
"NICE LOVE STORY"
This was a nice listen. I loved the characters Finn and Presley and I liked the development of all the other characters in the book too. it was a pretty non-drama love story but very sweet. I liked the voices of the narrators but sometimes it seemed like they were reading especially when they did other voices which was pretty weak. I'm not sure if either have done much romance prior to this book? if you like a sappy, feel good, love story than you will enjoy this book!
"Good romance book"
This book is an erotic romance love story.
Finn Black knew the min he laid eyes on her she was the one and he was not letting her go.
Presley Chambers lost her mother and brother, she is helping to raise her niece and she tries to struggle volunteering. She has no idea her future is going to teach her the value of love and no matter how many times she keeps running h will always come after her.
"This listen will leave you warm and fuzzy all over"
If you carve beautiful romances and HEA endings this listen is for you. The romance was hot but not over the top!
