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 Reckless Surrender is captivating and heartfelt... 3 August 2015

This can be read as a standalone but the characters were introduced in The Promises We Keep, book one in the Made For Love Series.

'Daphne stole a little piece of my heart in The Promises We Keep. Even though we only got a small glimpse of her, she was so mysterious yet compelling. 'Then once you add the unique non-relationship that she has with Trevor, and I couldn't wait to read their story. I must say that RC Martin did not let me down. There was just enough detail and back story so that you don't have to read book one. Reckless Surrender is captivating and heartfelt. I was able to connect with the characters in so many ways. RC pulls you into the story with her writing. She makes you feel every moment as if you are experiencing it yourself. I loved Reckless Surrender and I can't wait to see what RC comes up with next!

After a careless mistake, Daphne found herself in an unfortunate situation. Through that situation, she meets Logan who becomes her strength, as her parents turn their backs on her. This causes Daphne to not only lose faith in them but in God. As she faces the obstacles before her, she learns that it was never God that hurt her but God's people. As she finds her faith in Him again, she works to forgive those who hurt her in the past.

Trevor has known a lot of pain in his 28 years. He believes that he doesn't deserve real happiness. That pain has led him to live a life where he holds everyone close to him at a distance. Until he meets Daphne. She burrows her way into his heart without him even realizing it. Yet, once again he's afraid that if she knew how he truly felt about her he'd screw up their friendship. As Trevor grows throughout the story, he learns that by refusing the happiness he could potentially find with Daphne, he's slowly pushing her away.

Roman evolves in Reckless Surrender. He has deal breakers when it comes to relationships. The biggest one of them all is that he wants to be with someone who believes in God. As the story progresses and he works to help Daphne find her faith in God again, Roman learns that he shouldn't count someone out just because their beliefs don't align with his own.

Logan's beautiful and she knows it. She puts on a tough exterior but on the inside she just wants to love and be loved. I didn't like Logan when I first met her in The Promises We Keep and I didn't think it was possible that I ever could, but RC made me see a different side of Logan in Reckless Surrender. She's more than just a huge flirt who goes after every hot guy in a bar, she's selfless and she'd do anything for those she loves.
5.0 out of 5 stars So Sweet... with so much depth 28 September 2015

Ok.. I knew this was going to be a long read so i carved out enough time to get sucked in... because i did get sucked in!!!!!
This one is sexier than book 1 and holy sexual tension batman!!! I loved it. I loved Daphne and Trevor, i loved seeing their relationship since i was only given a peak into it in book 1.. it was way more complicated than i had anticipated!! Thank goodness they got their shirt sorted fairly easily.
I cannot say the same for Roman and Logan.. holy freaking hell. I disliked Logan in book 1.. but i kind of wanted she and roman to get together just because they disliked each other so much.. and wowza. i loved them. I won't say much more because i doing want to spoil it.. but if you're looking for 2 sweet love stories with depth then this is for you.
Cannot wait for more!

Reckless Surrender is the first book I have read from four points of views. In the beginning I was a little confused but as the story unwinds and the story was explained it totally sucked me into the storyline. From the four points of view, all are intertwined together by Daphne. Herself, her non-boyfriend Trevor, her best girlfriend, Logan, and her brother , Roman. The paths they take and relationships they attempt. Be ready for a long read, over 500 pages. This only makes it better. I was cheering the couples on and yelling at them when they were being boneheads. This book was a total pleasant surprise. Now I have to read the first one and can't wait for the next one. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves romance.

Another great story in this series! I absolutely loved Trevor and Daphne. These two are one of my favorite couples so far in this series. I was nervous about reading more on Logan as she was not my favorite in the first book but by the end I loved her! Roman and Logan are such an odd pairing to me but the two of them together was perfect. I'm so excited to read more in this series!
4.0 out of 5 stars Four stars, Four friends, Friendship and Love. 5 April 2016

I am reading the Made for Love series in reverse, but the good news is the books are standalone!
Ebook provided by R.C. Martin and the New Adult Book Club Group in exchange for an honest review.

Told from the alternating POVs of four friends, Reckless Surrender explores the thin line between friendship and more. What do you do when the friend you've sworn to never fall for is the person you know you love? What do you do when a bet turns into real feelings? And how do you overcome the past that has kept you from ever saying yes to a relationship before?

I found myself falling in love with every single character in Reckless Surrender, but the two main males had to be my favorite. Roman and Trevor are definitely more than what first meets the eye and far more than their reputations lead them to be. Their POV's were entertaining, enlightening, and brought the most bang to the story for me. I genuinely enjoying watching both men come to their senses and grow out of their pasts. The two girls, Daphne and Logan, are the least likely friends ever. They bond over a situation most girls hate each other for and provide each other the support they both are lacking. All four characters have heavy pasts, pasts that R.C. Martin took great care into explaining and detailing so the reader can understand the characters as they are now. However, R.C. Martin doesn't let the characters dwell in their pasts or let them be damaged, each character was pushing for the best version of themselves, whether it was in their careers, their relationship with God, or their general relationships. Each character was distinct, with a unique dialogue and perspective, and I loved that about Reckless Surrender.

I was incredibly impressed that R.C. Martin gave such heavy pasts to the characters, but she did an amazing job of showing that people are not their previous circumstances and they can grow to be different and better. Though the themes are heavy, ranging from religious beliefs to children and loving oneself, the book is a lighthearted read that made me smile through the entirety. The drama that unfolds in this book is so realistic and I loved watching the characters go through it together. Reckless Surrender is very lengthy, but it is so worth sticking it out to see the complications of each relationship be worked through and love to prevail. I highly recommend R.C. Martin to anyone looking for a new author to read and Made for Love is an incredible series to spend your time with.
