Surrender Release Day Blitz and Giveaway!

By Jennifer Burrows

Katherine Anderson was living a dream life. She came from an influential family, had a successful career as a food critic, and was about to marry the man of her dreams. Her life suddenly takes a change for the worse when she finds her fiancé in the arms of another woman. Her dream wedding now cancelled, she tries to find herself in Italy, on a trip she was supposed to be taking as the just married Mrs. Michael Gibbons.

Massimo "Tony" Bertalucci has had his life destroyed by a cartel known to be trafficking black market olive oil out of Italy and around the world. While the cartel thought the entire Bertalucci family was dead and buried, Tony remains very much alive and determined to find a way to get his life back.

When Tony and Katherine’s worlds collide, she is Tony’s only hope of escaping Italy alive. What Katherine doesn’t realize is that this charming, unassuming Italian man is using her to save his own life. Will she be able to get back to the states safely, or will she be subjected to the same fate as Tony's family? Will Tony find a way to stop running? Or will he have to surrender his life to the cartel?

My Review:

After suffering a failed engagement to the man of her dreams, Katherine decides to use her already booked honeymoon trip as a starting over adventure. While exploring Italy, Katherine catches handsome Italian Tony’s eye. His life is far from easy as he’s on the run from a murderous plot against his family. The last thing he needs is to fall in love the woman he’s using to escape the country and drag Katherine down with him. Katherine and Tony will have to walk through the fires of hell in order to be with each other and that walk may be the end of their lives.

Surrender isn’t your typical love story. Most romance novels don’t involve cartels and mystery. I loved Surrender! It has such uniqueness to its story. I particularly liked the development of the characters back stories. The ending of the novel reminded so much of the old 1950s romance movies I used to watch with my mom and grandma growing up. It gave me almost a sense of nostalgia and warmed my heart. Their love story is a complicated mess and I loved every second of it!
