I just finished Salvation and I really enjoyed this book. It is apart of a Surrender series but can be read as a stand alone. I had not read the other books and was able to follow just fine but wished to hell that I had read them! It would have given me good insight into some of the secondary characters. This is Robbie and Ember’s story. Robbie is Raven’s brother (Raven and Declan from Surrendering and Surviving books) Raven and Declan are getting married and are working with Ember. She works a Clyde’s where she designs dresses. This is how Ember and Robbie meet. They are both instantly attracted to each other but Robbie is an absolute jerk to her. She doesnt have a very good self esteem anyways with they way that her childhood was and tries to shrug it off Robbie on the other hand wants her but she is pure and innocent and he doesnt deserve someone like her.
“You’re to pure for a man with demons like me. I have my own sh*t buried deep, just like you.”
However, the heart wants what the heart wants!
“But maybe one day we can share those with each other. I dont want to be your friend, Ember. I want to be more.”
Like I had said before Ember hasnt had the best childhood. Her mother and sister were absolutely horrible to her. She feels like she doesnt deserve happiness either but she feels safe with Robbie.
“You make me feel safe, Robbie. Im not sure why, but every time you pull me close or hold me, a sense of peace settles over me.”
Here is the thing though. Her mother and sister are still out to ruin Ember’s happiness. Ember has to open up to Robbie and tell him everything that had happened to her. She is afraid that she will taint their relationship and he wont stick around. Robbie is in it for the long haul and takes alot of convincing on his part for her to understand but a misunderstanding leads him to question them. You just have to read this story. You will not want to miss out on this!
I am hooked! Im gonna be honest. It started off to me too sweet. Maybe it is because I have read alot of bad dirty mouth guys and it was just different. Once it picked up in their relationship I changed my mind! Robbie, you dirty boy you! Yeah, he made my shiver. What I loved most about him was that he was just a honest guy and just wanted to protect Ember from everything. A little possessive but hell, who wouldnt want that! Ember, I felt really bad for her. Once she kept giving Robbie more of what happened in her life, my heart broke for her. She has alot of vulnerability but is strong in her own way and that made me relate more to her. Im gonna be honest, something happened that I didnt see coming and DAYUM my heart literally split into two and I broke down and cried along with Ember. Holy sh*tballs. I was just so into that scene. I just couldnt help it!
I enjoyed the secondary characters too. They brought alot of depth to the story and I cannot wait to see more from them. This was a first for me for Ahren and all I can say it I have found another author that puts me into their story, makes me apart of their family and I want more….like yesterday!
“What the hell is so funny?” I lick up the column of her exposed throat.
“The look on your face.”
“Glad to amuse you, babe, but you won’t think it’s quite so funny when I punish you for your little stunt.”
“Whatever you say. It was innocent.”
“Innocent? You’re in a bar in a strange city, with some of the craziest girls in the world, looking like a fucking sex kitten, and you call that innocent?”
“You think I look like a sex kitten?” Her voice goes low.
“Absofuckinglutely. Hottest girl in this room. The hair, the body, the outfit… Every guy in here, with the exception of our friends, wants to fuck you. Lucky for me, that’s my job. And when I get you alone, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”
Her eyes grow hazy with lust, and she licks her lower lip. “Can you tell me more about this punishment?”
I move her to a dark corner and pin her against the wall. “Stop looking at me like that, Ember. I’m not above fucking you against the bathroom wall.”
“Ummm, sounds like fun. What else.” She taunts me, and I grow hard against her pelvis.
“You like that? You want me to talk dirty and tell you I want to eat your fucking pussy until you beg for mercy for leaving me tonight? Make you come silently against my mouth, fingers, and dick while we’re in a house full of people?”
“Yes, I want that. I want you any and every way I can get you.”
