5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Captivating 21 January 2016
By Books Laid Bare - Published on
When I finished the first book in this series, I was blow away. It had gotten under my skin and left a book hangover that took a while to shake. Jumping back into Graciella and Alexander’s story was a like lining myself up for a slap, I knew it was going to hurt but did it anyway because I just had to get another fix from this pair.
And boy did they deliver – they pack a punch!
Now that Graciella knows the secrets that Alexander tried so desperately to keep from her, there is nothing that will stand in her way from protecting not only him but what they have together. It is her mission to ensure that his past is confined, exorcised to the furthest recesses of their existence but is it?
And more to the point is that all they have to worry about?...I think not!
My heart went out to the pair of them, their lives were blighted by events that are beyond their control but when things begin to get a little too close for comfort it is Alexander that takes the bull by the horns and puts everything he can into not only keeping the love of his life out of harm’s way but also trying to work out what the heck is going on and what happened to Graciella’s mother.
The story wore it’s mystery and danger like mist lingering on the moors, it shrouded them almost permanently, only occasionally lifting to reveal tantalising glimpses of what they seem to be battling to keep…a love that was so busy facing its demons head on that it seemed to be constantly blindsided by forces that seem to thrive living in the shadows.
Graciella and Alexander were strong characters and because of that their story was able to spring off the page. They were engaging and realistic but they weren’t perfect, they had their flaws. But this is the story of a journey, a voyage of intimacy, to discover the truth about themselves and what they can have together, it was all about two damaged souls learning that together they can heal, they can love and they can live. It was about giving their hearts the opportunity to breath and watching their story take shape.
The ending was not what I had thought it was going to be and that is not a bad thing, it just means that I am now itching to get my hands on the next book.
If asked to recommend a new author Rachel would be one that would easily find her way to the tip of my tongue, this may only be her second novel but she has an artistry and flair that will keep you completely captivated.

Because you can't have one without the other my review is about both books.

Forsaken (The Surrender Series #1)
Rachel Madbury

Grace Snow is stunned to find that the mother who left when she was 7 has passed away and left her a house in Maine. Grace has no idea why her mother left, so she heads to Maine to see if she can find the answers she so desperately wants. When she gets there she finds the house in need of serious repairs and upgrades so she hires a local construction company to get the job done.
Alexander Cole is a bit of a mystery. He keeps to himself and he throws himself into his work and he plans to keep things the way they are. That is until he comes face to face Grace. He does his best to stay away from her but he is finding it impossible.
It doesn’t take long before the two come together, but Alex has a secret and it’s a big secret, he knows that if Grace ever finds out she won’t want to be with him but that doesn’t stop him from being with her. Grace can see that there is something going on with Alex but he won’t open to her and it’s causing them serious issues in their relationship. Things come to a head when the pair are jumped in an alley outside of an art museum and Alex’s past starts to come to light.

Forbidden (The Surrender Series #2)

Forbidden picks up right where Forsaken left off, Alex’s secret is out and a strange visit from a woman in his past to Grace, makes Alex angry but it also seems to be a pivotal point in the pairs rocky relationship. But just as things are calming down more strange things begin to happen at Grace’s house. Dead birds left all over her yard and in her kitchen sink lead Alex to call in security for Grace. It seems as though everything leads back to Grace’s mom.
Grace and Alex are still having issues, he is doing everything in his power to protect the woman he has fallen in love with all while dealing his past.
Being in love isn’t easy but when faced with Alex’s dark past and the mystery surrounding Grace’s mom it makes it even harder. Can these two people who love each other so much finally learn to trust themselves and each other? Who is behind the threats to Grace? What happened to Grace’s mom? Will Alex ever be able to get out from the stigma of his past?
This is a suspenseful yet sexy read. You can’t really know who is a friend and who is the enemy and things really start to heat up between our couple and you can feel the passion. I really enjoyed Grace and Alex and it’s amazing to watch them over come so much, Grace’s trust issues, the horrible crime that Alex was accused of years ago. They are working hard to be a couple and you can see the love from the start. Their journey is not easy but they keep working at it. It’s the mystery of Grace’s mom that keeps you on the edge of your seat. You want to know why she would just leave her husband and daughter and why did she hide anything personal in a place that could only be found by doing major construction? And there’s Alex’s past. The fact that he has no memory of what happened 10 years ago, it keeps coming up and it left me wondering about what really happened on that fateful night?
I can’t tell you what the answers are because I don’t know all of them. This book ends in another cliff hanger and it is explosive! I will be waiting for the next book so I can get the answers I want.

Graciella and Alex begin their relationship anew. After the truth comes out about Alex's past, he starts to begin to trust himself again. For him this is the beginning of his new life with Graciella.

There is still a threat against Graciella, but Alex knows he can protect her. With one phone call, they both have protection from the unknown.

Being able to see the relationship grow with these two characters, brings an endless supply of love. When they are faced with how some react to Alex's past, the loyalty and strength for one another puts a smile on your face. With each learning to trust the other, their life seems to be on the right track. But with the threat against Graciella, they will be put to the ultimate test.

When the threat becomes more prudent, there will be more questions with no answers, but I can't wait to read the next book. This book builds anticipation and an appreciation for all that matters with two characters learning how to love and trust.

The ending was not something I anticipated, but I cannot wait for the next book!

But poor Grace is also broken herself and has some reservations , but Alex 's tries to help her get whole again and all he wants is for her to let him in . And he knows that she that be happy again. The problem is their both want to protect the other, just like ever married couple wants to do . The author has given us a great story with strong characters and a story line that flow smoothly with good depth .I could go on and tell you more about this story but that would spoil the story for you.

This was the first time I've read anything by this author, and I'm so glad I did. Alexander and Grace belong together. Even though he had secrets that he's been beating himself up for years, Grace loves him enough to stick with him. He's suffered for so many years that Grace is like medicine for his soul. But Grace has her own issues that have broken her. Will Alexander and Grace be able to truly let each other in to heal together?

The character development is great, and they are strong with depth while slowly learning to trust each other. A well written story line flows very smoothly. Rachel Madbury does an excellent job writing in twists and turns that I never saw coming, on top of the emotional angst that seeped out of my kindle. All the obstacles in Alexander and Grace's way, made this story almost impossible to put down, and I CANNOT wait for the next book! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
