All of Melissa’s books can be read as a stand alone story, but reading the stories in order make it all the more fun! Surrender My Love is book 2 in the Braden series.
Disclosure: I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Fall in love with Cole Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.
Annalise “Leesa” Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush—and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.
From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He’s a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there’s a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart—and a painful past—but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.
A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs—and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

It’s a Melissa Foster book. Did you really expect anything less than a 5 star rating?
I love that each of these books, while in a series, can also be read as a stand alone and you aren’t totally lost and confused. Not that I have ever missed one of Melissa’s books!
I have read all the books, in order, of all of her series. When I picked up Surrender My Love, I could not recall a darn thing from Healed by Love so I felt like I was reading a stand alone and wasn’t lost or confused.
Like most of Melissa’s books, I found myself giddy while reading. Especially when Cole first met Leesa “with 2 e’s”.
I adored Leesa. I can relate to her story almost a little too well, so her emotions were very familiar. And of course, Cole being a Braden. Let’s be real. Braden men are heavenly and their families are the kind of family I could only dream to be a part of!
I love that in every Braden book, we get to know the family as much as we get to follow the romance of the two main characters. I love every Braden and I adore Cole’s parents as much as his siblings. I cannot wait to keep following this Braden clan and seeing what’s in store for them.
Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love.
Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.
THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.
