What more could a girl ask for?

Determined to shake the ghosts of his past, Jon focuses on forging a future with Patti, but he’s always been a master at standing in his own way.
When Jon’s past refuses to be forgotten, will Patti be able to live with the truth about the man who’s stolen her heart?

I think this may have been my favourite book so far in the series. Not only were the characters pretty awesome but the story line was also intriguing.
I thought that Patti was a strong character as she tries to make her way through life, one douche-bag boyfriend at a time. All in a matter of hours, she catches her boyfriend cheating on her and is then fired from her job. I was in awe of the fact that she just continues to soldier on. As she tries to let off some steam with her friends, Jon walks into her life and turns it upside down.
I have been curious about Jon’s character throughout the previous books as he is never truly revealed until Surrender To Love. I have been persuaded by his charm and he is now my favourite male character in the series, so far. Jon is described as a “man whore” but soon changes his ways due to his need to gave Patti. While he holds a lot of secrets, these could ultimately make-or-break the foundations of their budding relationship.
I really enjoyed the conclusion of this novel and I am excited to see which characters are portrayed in the next book.
