Product Description

Product Description

Singapore has stolen a piece of Ava Thompson.

It took one life shattering moment for her to realize her ex-boyfriend is not the man she believed him to be. Returning home to Los Angeles was never going to be easy for Ava, as her heart has been shattered to smithereens and she’s convinced it’ll never heal. Or, so she thought.

Enter Jasper White.

Unbeknown to Ava, he will change her life forever.

The attraction is instantaneous, which troubles Ava, who has sworn off men indefinitely. Yet, she is finding resisting Jasper—with his tousled bedroom hair and piercing cerulean eyes—harder than she ever imagined. That’s because Jasper knows what he wants … and he wants her.

Can Ava surrender to her feelings for the one man who compels her to love again? What happens if love isn’t enough?

To be honest, I do love Monica James's other book that I have read! It was out of this world amazing.
So I was just sooo excited to start this one! And every other book this gorgeous author releases!!!

So to start out, I want to mention that a lot of books I read are from Authors whom I like to interact with! Who love to chat with their fans and have a good time. The amazing Monica does fit into tat category very nicely!

Now to the book, bang! It went off with a bang and ended with a bang! My cheeks hurt from giggling, my eyes stung with tears and my heart was aching... Literally!
I felt everything Ava was feeling, and I couldn't...could NEVER pass the amazing Jasper *sighs* I wish he'd surrender to me!

This book is written so well, with amazing characters, perfect story line and it had me feeling & surrendering! Like didn't know how this book was going to actually pan out, it wasn't predictable and that's why I love it so much!

One click now, :) you just have to surrender to it... I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars I SURRENDER to JASPER!!!! 3 October 2013
By LuvtoRead47 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved so many things about I surrender. I loved the snarky and very funny Ava and the swoonworthy Jasper. I loved watching their relationship progress and develop over the course of the book, and found myself cheering them on. I found Jasper, while somewhat damaged, to be very endearing. Several things he said stuck with me:

"You are your own worst enemy. Stop over thinking Ava, and let life happen. You start dissecting everything and life becomes pretty boring. So stop over thinking and start living."

"Never apologize for being you, Ava. True feelings that are raw, no matter how messy they may be, I will gladly take over superficial, insincere actions. You told me so much about yourself; about your vulnerability and your heartache and you didn't even utter a single word. Your tears told me everything. Sometimes those cheesy metaphors hold some truth."

"If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's yours. If it does not, it was not meant to be."

I didn't want the book to end and found myself yelling at my Kindle. This story will make you smile, laugh, and even cry at times. It's a rollercoaster of emotions but I found myself not wanting to get off of the ride. Can't wait to read the next book in the trilogy!!!

I Surrender by Monica James

Review by Jen (BestSellers & BestStellars)

I Surrender was an emotional roller coaster ride! It was filled with ups and downs, twists and turns, it will make you laugh, cry, scream in frustration and aggravation, but overall, it will make you desperate to follow the journey of Ava and Jasper, and you will be wanting more! This was an amazing romance, the sexual tension was so heavy, and there was a well-built plot. It was very enjoyable! Monica James did a wonderful job with her debut novel!

Ava Thompson has given up everything to be with her boyfriend, Harper. She moves to Singapore with him so he can pursue his career. Then while in Singapore, Harper decides Ava is not what he wants and breaks up with her. Ava packs up and goes back home to L.A. with a shattered heart and convinces herself it won't ever heal. That is until she meets Jasper White.

The attraction between Ava and Jasper is immediate and bothers Ava because she is nursing a broken heart and has made a promise to herself to not get involved with another man. She finds resisting Jasper, with his sexy, ruffled bedroom hair and piercing cerulean eyes, harder than she ever thought. It doesn't help Ava that Jasper knows exactly what he wants, and he wants Ava.

Will Ava be able to surrender to her feelings for the one man who makes her want to love again? What happens if love does not conquer all? What happens if love isn't enough?

"If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's yours. If it does not, it was never meant to be."

I really liked Ava. She is smart, beautiful, and strong. Even though she feels weak and broken, she really does show incredible strength. Even though she does not want to get into another relationship because she's still trying to heal, Jasper makes a huge impact on her life and her heart.

"What you make me feel in here, it scares me." ... "You're generosity, your convictions and your heart, they astound me."

I loved Jasper! He is sexy, talented, and caring. He definitely oozes sex and has a little bit of alpha-male in him. He's also really sweet. He wants Ava more than anything and for the first time in his life, he wants to be with someone and try for a future.

"Ava this changes everything. What we shared wasn't just sex, it was epic. You make me feel like a better man. I want to better myself so I am good enough for you."

I LOVED Ava's best friend, Veronica. She is a tattooed, pierced firecracker! She's not afraid to speak her mind about anything, and she tells you exactly what she's feeling at that exact moment. The things she said had me laughing out loud! Everyone should definitely have a best friend like V.

"That motherf***er! I always hated his a**, but now ... now I want him skinned and barbequed filet mignon style!

I loved this book. The love between Ava and Jasper was amazing. I could not put this down, not even for a minute! I needed to know what was going to happen. My emotions were all over the place. I laughed, I cried, I got angry, but all of that was worth it because I was able to witness two people with amazing chemistry. There was no cliffhanger, but Ava and Jasper's story does not end here. There will be a second book, Surrender to Me, coming in November. I can definitely not wait for this book! I need to know the rest of Ava and Jasper's story!

The quality of writing was great. The story was very well-written and enjoyable to read. The story was an amazing romance between two wonderful characters, and kept me very interested! I did not want to put it down!

5 Diamonds for this amazing story!!

4.5 Stars****
I was hooked within the first few pages. I really felt Ava's heartache. The way she gets dumped was just shitty...can you say DOUCHE!?!?!

"A girl, whose heart has been crushed, chewed on, spat out, set on fire-and put on repeat just for fun."

Thank goodness for her rockin bestie V Instead of letting Ava wallow in her misery she convinces Ava to go check out her boyfriend Lucas' band "Passenger's of Ego." In steps Jasper lead singer and Hottie Extraordinaire! Besides his smokin good looks Jasper possesses a heart of gold. I Just loved Jasper!!!
I really enjoyed watching Ava and Jasper's friendship bloom into a romance. I even appreciated the cliff hanger, because it stayed true to their story. Love may not always be easy, but it's a journey worth taking...
What a wonderful Debut Novel by Monica James...Bravo! I'm truly looking forward to the next books in this series.

By Samantha Hostetler - Published on

I really didn't like this book. The lead female drove me absolutely insane. I've never read a more weak, childish female in my life. The back and forth of her inner monologue was nauseating. I get that people wrap themselves up in relationships, and if that relationship ends it can be difficult to recover from but I've read books where the lead female has been raped, physically abused or mentally abused and didn't act like this girl. She found d someone who treated her like a freaking queen, and ran every time he looked at someone else. Not to mention that through this whole book she throws fits, but then curses her temper but does NOTHING about it.

The author's constant use of "as I am..." drove me insane. "I won't be doing this as I am a raving lunatic" (not a quote from the book, just giving an example) Of the hundreds upon hundreds of books I've read, I've returned one, and written only two bad reviews this being one of the two. I can usually find something redeeming in every book I read, but this was just pathetic. Please don't waste your money unless you're I to females who play mind games, have no backbone and can never make up their minds.
