~ Excerpt ~

When Luke reached one of the doors and opened it he looked behind him as if he expected me to be there. He looked down towards me, and seemed confused. “You coming Becca?” I wanted to tell him no because he was acting like an ass. “Please?”

I guess I could at least go talk to him and see what the hell he was so upset about. I walked toward him feeling his eyes on me the entire time, he made me so nervous. When I reached him he grabbed my hand and pulled me into the studio. Before the door could even close all of the way he was on me. He pushed me back against the wall his hands immediately finding my hips, which seemed to be his favorite spot.

His mouth crushed mine almost feeling like he was going to devour me whole. His kiss had this urgency and need to it that set my veins on fire. We had passion before when we kissed but it was nothing like this. This was animalistic, unapologetic, and completely overwhelming. I ran my hands up his chest gripping his t-shirt because I need something to hold onto, I felt like my knees would buckle and I would melt into him at any time. I moved my hands around his neck and laced them through his hair, giving him a little tug as I did it.

Luke let out this throaty moan that in the heat of the moment sounded like a growl. He lifted me off the ground by my hips and I instinctively wrapped my legs around his waist. I could feel how much he wanted me and I knew that if he initiated it now, public place or not, it would happen. Was this what I really wanted though? Did I want my first time to be in a recording studio while I braced up against a wall? The part of my mind that Jen told me I didn’t listen to enough was screaming ‘YES!’ There was the other part of me though that knew I would regret it, and possibly even resent him for it.

***Tara, #NerdGirlTallulah’s Review***

I have kind of mixed feelings about Surrender to Me. Whilst I did really enjoy it, there wasn’t really much that made it stand out from every other rock star romance that I’ve read before.

 One thing that was refreshing, was that even though he is this major hotshot rockstar, Lucas wasn’t a massive drinker, never did any drugs and did his best to stay out of the public eye – he isn’t a drama king, looking for fame wherever he can.

 To me, Surrender to Me, was your typical ‘hot, rich famous guy saves the poor, shy virgin,’ kind of read.

 However, it did have it’s redeeming points: Luke and Becca were both highly likeable characters – sweet, funny and VERY sexy! The chemistry between them is amazing! There is A LOT of sex in the book, but it never felt repetitive or boring – I was totally caught up in the passion with them!

 There were a few different dimensions to the story: The romance between Luke and Becca,Luke’s jealousy, the rivalry between Luke and Jackson that Becca gets caught up in, and Becca’s home-life, All are explored well and definitely bring more of a balance to the book between all of the H.O.T scenes!

 Although it didn’t WOW me, Surrender to Me kept me interested throughout, and I am very curious to see where Luke and Becca end up, in their sequel/follow up story!

Ashley Piscitelli~ Author Bio ~

My name is Ashley Piscitelli. I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my husband, two kids, and two dogs. On top of starting a writing career, I am a full-time student and a full-time mom. I love spending time with my kids, although I have to hide away with the computer from them when I am writing! I love being active and being outdoors.

I have always been passionate about writing. I wrote this book in about three months. I love reading romance books! I feel like being able to lose yourself in a book is one of the more exciting aspects. The books I love to read and write will be ones that make you feel for the characters. You should have an opinion on every character in a book whether you love them, hate them, or think they are up to something.

I have always thought that the most important critic is your reader, so I would love to hear from you. If you read the book and loved it or hated it, tell me. As long as it is in a constructive way, I will always answer and interact with you. I want my fans to be open & talk to me what they want for the characters in the story, and what they would like to see happen.

I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
