Product Description

[Reckless Surrender is book two in the Made for Love series but can be read as a STAND ALONE novel. Written for audiences 18+ years of age.]

Three and a half years ago, Daphne walked into my shop, kicked open the door to my soul, invited herself inside, and got comfortable. By the time I realized she’d made herself at home, it was too late to kick her out. Now, I’m in love with her. But I’m not her boyfriend. She’s not my lover. We’re just friends…

Trevor’s it for me. I love him so much it drives me crazy. But we’re broken—two battered people whose souls have been ravaged by the world. We decided a long time ago that we wanted to love each other but not attempt to fix one another. Instead, we give each other as much as we can. I’m beginning to wonder if that’s ever going to be enough…

Daphne is my best friend, our bond forged by a shared mistake that left us both brokenhearted. Her happiness is wrapped in the tattooed package of a man named Trevor, and I want her to have him. I'm bold enough to do anything to push those two together, even if that means consorting with the enemy—her brother, Roman. All I have to do is convince his stubborn ass that my plan will work...

5.0 out of 5 stars 508 pages of pure love!!! 25 May 2016

Sometimes a book leaves you with many thoughts, but sometimes a book leaves you with a blank mind; and not because it's bad.... because it's so good that consumed your mind and heart on every page.

The story of Daphne and Trevor is honest, real and unique. But what I liked most is fresh and clean their love is. Let's face it occasionally we just need something like that in our lives with a little respect; a hint of sexual tension and an ounce of pure love, and what do you get? Boom! Reckless Surrender <3!

I think this book proves once again how talented is R.C. Martin, her style is spectacular, I don't know how this girl manages to convey so much in a book, but this is what is called being talented!! I'm a fan for life.

I received this book in exchange for a honest review.

After reading ‘So much more’ (the third book in this series and enjoying it so much) I really wanted to read more books by R.C. Martin. So I was very enthusiastic to be giving the chance to read book 2 of this series, ‘Reckless surrender’.

One of the things that I loved in ‘Reckless surrender’ is that you get to read the story of two couples. Both couples story is really prominent in the book. Both have their own problems, happiness and their own feelings. I really loved that.

Daphne and Trevor are the ‘perfect’ couple, they trust and love each other, they’re honest with each other, they’re sweet together and love to cuddle. The only problem with that all is that they aren’t a couple!! They’re just two friends that love each other very much and can’t image their lives without each other but who are too afraid to ask for more from life or from each other.

For years now their friends have been hoping that Daphne and Trevor would take their relationship to the next step but both are stubborn and too afraid to do that. But Daphne’s best friend Logan is tired of waiting for them to see the light so she decides to push the two of them together (without them knowing this!). And she already has a plan to do this but for her plan to work, she needs the help of Daphne’s older brother Roman, which isn’t an easy thing to admit. Because Roman isn’t really her friend, you can even say that they don’t like each other. But both love Daphne very much and both want nothing more than for Trevor and Daphne to become a ‘real’ love couple. The plan is for Logan and Roman to fake a relationship with each other in the hopes that Daphne and Trevor will follow with their own. But although some things goes as planned, others aren’t. Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected places!

Although both couples were very different from each other, that just made this story so great. You have the love between Daphne and Trevor that’s already there and then you have this ‘new’ love between Logan and Roman. One of the things that R.C. Martin writes about in her books, is religion. And how each one of her characters experience this or not. Why one believes and one not. But the writer isn’t afraid to also write about other issues too, like loss, heartbreak, making hard decisions that will change your life forever. And although she writes about religion, she also gives us many love scenes in her books.

The only thing that I missed in the end of this story was an epilogue about Roman and Logan but I just discovered that the writer has written a novella about it!!! So I’m really happy about that!

This is book two in the Made for love series but can be read as a stand-alone novel. You don’t have to read the first one to fall completely in love with this book. I usually don’t like reading books that have multiple points of view and I couldn’t really get into the book at first. As I continued reading I came to appreciate the many perspectives because I really got to understand each character. The character development in this novel is excellent; the writing makes you feel as though you understand the characters and helps you develop a relationship with them.

Reckless Surrender is a story about love, friendship, redemption, and second chances. In the novel you’re introduced to four main characters Daphne, Trevor, Logan, and Roman. Each character provides a unique perspective on love, friendship, and religion. Daphne and Trevor’s relationship is complicated and defined by their past demons. Logan and Roman’s relationship is the true definition of opposites attract. This story took you through the journey of their relationships, the ups and downs; the highs and lows; and everything in-between. This story made me laugh, cry, feel frustrated, and think of the bigger picture.

One of the many great surprises that I loved about this book was the infusion of Christianity throughout the story. Usually books that deal with religion either takes it to the two extremes: where they are condemning the religion or praising that religion. I liked that R.C. showcased the importance of people’s faith and how it shaped the characters personality and views. I also appreciated that this book showed how sometimes you might lose faith but you can always find your way back.

Overall, this was a wonderful read that took you on an emotional rollercoaster. I would highly recommend reading this book.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my review in any shape or form.

This was heartbreaking and beautiful all wrapped up into one story.

I’ll be honest when I first started Reckless Surrender I was really confused as to how all these stories were going to connect and to be honest I had no idea what was going on.

Soon, I was engrossed in the story. I was invested in the characters, I needed to know their story to know they were going to be okay. I was drawn to them, the writing and the story. If it wasn’t for mommy duties and sleep I would’ve finished this a lot sooner.

The story is told in four points of view, Daphne, Roman, Trevor and Logan’s. At times their voices all meshed together and I wasn’t sure whose point of view I was reading that’s what I didn’t like about the book but to be honest that was the only thing I didn’t like. I personally love having multiple perspectives, I love seeing the story threw the eyes of different characters. I get to see things from their perspective and I like being in each of their minds. Reckless Surrender is no different. It is also a friends to lovers and a enemies to lovers mixed into one beautiful story. KUDOS R.C. MARTIN! KUDOS! You wrapped two of my favorite things together and created a story that had me ignore the outside world so I could live in the world of Reckless Surrender.

Reckless Surrender gives the perfect message of surrendering to your fears and doubts and taking a leap of faith and hoping that things turn out for the best. Of course, like any story that is well written I was left with wanting more, I have a million questions going through my head wondering if all these characters are okay after I finished the book. That’s how much R.C. Martin made me care about the characters. I just wanted to make sure they were okay and I wanted to know more about them.

Some parts were a bit cliché but for me, that didn’t take away from the story like it does most stories. I think it worked out well with the storyline.

I loved that each character was unique and had it's own problems to deal with. I especially loved how they dealt with real issues learning to overcome their fears and just try to have some faith that things would work out for the best. It was something new and refreshing.

What I absolutely LOVED about this story was how religion played into it. And it wasn’t a preachy kind of religion story that I often ignore, roll my eyes and just count to ten because my patience is running thin. Oh no, this was actually beautifully tied into the story. I absolutely loved it. I loved how R.C. Martin didn’t preach Christianity, she didn’t force religion down your throat nor the characters either. It was beautifully played out and tastefully done. I have never read anything like that and I am seriously impressed. Each character discovered religion in their own personal way and had their own interpretation, it was beautifully.

I am definitely going to look into reading the first book and definitely the third book that’s coming soon.

This book is not a short read, so settle in for the duration. It is billed as a standalone book within the series but I have to say that while the book reads really, really well on its own and there are plenty of details and history – I think reading the first book would help you get the gist of not only the characters but the authors writing style.
In the first book you are introduced to Daphne – it is a fleeting glimpse it is enough to rouse the suspicions and pique interest.
The relationship or not as it is with Trevor was intriguing to say the least and this is their story and it is completely engrossing.
Alone, Daphne is nursing heartbreak like never before. Cast adrift by her parents, she is wallowing, struggling to find a reason to keep her faith her family and her god. But when she takes herself to task and faces her hurdles head on she is enlightened enough to realise that her faith is the one thing that she really has to rely upon, because no matter how much she may have considered that it had deserted her, the truth is that bad people do bad things in the name of her god.
Finding reason and capacity to forgive them is her challenge.
Life has handed Trevor a bum deal in many respects. It hasn’t exactly been an easy ride.
Reluctant to accept that good could possibly happen to him he has managed to life his live almost one step removed from anyone that means anything to him, believing that losing someone that hasn’t got a hold on his heart will be easier, he has hidden his heart away.
I really felt so sad for him, he deserved to be happy, no matter what he thought.
But all that changed when Daphne came into his life because her friendship was slowly morphing into something more, she meant more to him that either she realised or he was willing to admit.
But could this complete commitment-phobe see that his indifference and almost apathy was almost pushing the best thing that had ever happened to him away.
The book also gives us other characters that support the story along the way, Roman was someone that initially I want too keen on, he was a little too intense for my liking. Everything was so straight-laced, he was almost too opinionated.
His religion was paramount to him and I respected his desire to find a woman that shared his beliefs but I was relieved when he finally understood that you don’t have to find someone who is practically a clone in order to find happiness.
The one surprise I found was the portrayal of Logan. This pretty party girl completely flipped my opinion of her on its head, because she finally let me have a peak at who she really was, the fire that lay beneath the party girl and passion she had for those she really cared about.
Overall the story was a journey, it was emotional and dramatic. It had me laughing at times, but reaching for the tissues at other. It gave me characters that made me smile and others that left me shaking my head.
It took its time to get going but once it did, it was a beautifully crafted story.
