Can be read as a standalone.

Patty gets laid off and finds her boyfriend cheating on her. She's pretty much done with men, and doesn't trust herself in selecting another guy. The next man is probably going to be just like everyone else. Lying, cheating sleazeballs.

When she goes out with a group of her friends, she meets Jon at a club. Unfortunately, the two sexy women on his arms give Patty more reasons on why men are pigs.

Jon avoids serious relationships like the plague, a

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Erotic romance with a sweetness mixed in. Surrendering to love has never felt so right. But of course you know it must come with some baggage, a little drama. Just enough to make you question should I continue on with what I know to be right for me Patricia did not really have much left to lose. When all hope was lost or slightly misdirected, a collision puts things to right or so they seem that way. Someone else has there own way of making your right seem wrong.

Jonathon just was not sure. Life

Surrender to Love is the third book in the Night Calls series by author J.C Valentine and the second one I have read. I’ve been meaning to go back and read the first book in the series for a while now but just haven’t gotten around to it. All books can be read as stand alones but do have some interconnecting stories, so if you like to read books in order, start with book one.

Patricia Jacobs is done with men. After her last failed relationship she realizes what she really needs is time to just be single. Jonathon Bradshaw does not do relationships ever. He is more of a one night stand kind of guy. A chance meeting between Patricia and Jonathon just may change their thoughts on the subject of love.

In the third book of this wonderful series the author once again treats us to colorful characters with a fun and sexy storyline. The author tempts us with flirty banter, kee

I loved this book. I received a copy from the author for an honest review. I have not (at the time of this review) read the first two books in this series.

The main characters, Jon and Patti, have "baggage" from their pasts that continue to haunt them as they try to run from their troubles. Well, that's all about to change. They're going to have to face their past if they want to continue

Surrender to Love is the story of Jon and Patti. I didn't think I was going to like Jon's character at first as he is kind of a man-ho (even after he meets Patti) but later in the book you find the reasoning behind his actions and can cut him some slack. Patti also has some issues - her strongest connection is with her dead father. Jon meets Patti at bar where she is out with friends, coincidentally, two of whom work for him, while he is on a date with two other women. He chats with Patti -- but ...more

3 The Need for Speed Stars!

They say bad things come in threes, but for Patricia ‘Patti’ Jacobs the third was a much needed silver lining. Having caught her cheating boyfriend ramming into another woman, being let go after years of being a stellar employee, and getting rear-ended, Patti could not believe her luck or lack thereof. Not only did someone collide into her beloved muscle car, the offender happened to be none other than

J.C. Valentine never ever ceases to amaze me with her writing! She is just simply amazing and I can't get enough of her characters that seem to come to life off of the pages as you are reading. You can feel the emotions running through each character and you can't help but wonder what is going to happen next. I have to say as the series progresses each and every character has their flaws and hangups but they soon find that happiness they deserve.

The Night Calls Series is one of the most entertaining and beautiful book series I’ve had the pleasure of reading! I loved That First Kiss (#2) and I enjoyed Stranded (#1) very much! So reading the third book was a no-brainer! I’ve got to say that the second book is my favorite by far..But the third book, as well as the first book, are really good! I enjoyed Surrender to love very much- I could not put it down!- but I didn’t love-love it.

This was my favorite type of story. A nice light, romantic, feel good kind of story. Poor Patti is not doing so well at the beginning of the story, she has just walked in on her boyfriend having sex with someone else. Too bad that men are scum. Soon after this she looses her job. Now she is really feeling bad for herself.

Jon is the perfect playboy. A new girl every week, a real love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy. He likes his life this way, he is happy. Then his accountant quits on him. He goes

Those wanting a nice mix of romance and angst will get exactly that in Surrender to Love. It's an intensely emotional journey as two people let their pasts control their future. Through life altering events they realize the importance of moving on in a HEA that is full of tears and misunderstandings. All through the story though are numerous hot encounters amidst one or two cliched moments that left me frustrated along with a hero that's far from perfect.

SURRENDER TO LOVE is the third instalment in J.C.Valentine’s contemporary, new adult, erotic Night Calls series. Although it is the third storyline it can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty. Several of the previous storyline characters are present but their presence or history is not confusing to the current story. This is Patti and Jon’s story.

The premise focuses on Patricia Jacobs as she suffers one of the worst weeks of her entire life-she caught her boyfriend in b

Patricia Jacobs (Patti) just can’t get a break. As if a cheating boyfriend isn’t enough, she also gets fired from her job as an accountant. And if that isn’t enough she gets rear ended by a handsome man named Jonathon Bradshaw. Ok, so the last thing is not that bad, especially not since he offers to take her out for dinner. Jonathon Bradshaw (Jon) is not a man who gets into serious relationships with women, well that is until

The plot dives in head first and continues at a good pace only slowing down when appropriate but has you eager to turn the pages. It’s well written, easy to read, contains great wit and expresses the emotions the characters are feeling very well.

This book pulls you in the action right away – the cheating kind of action – with our female heroine ripping out of her cheating man’s driveway in her ’68 Pontiac GTO. And if her morning is not already going wrong, Patti finds herself sitting in her boss’s office after lunch only to be politely let go seeing as the company can no longer afford her workaholic tendencies.

Next we meet Jon – the playboy who can’t remember the name of the blonde in his bed. Happy to get rid of her without a promise

Jon Bradshaw cannot let go of his past. In doing so, his life and bed are filled with an endless string of nameless women. He doesn’t allow anyone to get close. The kind of women he usually meets aren’t looking for more than a good time anyway. Then one night he meets Patricia Jacobs. Something about her pulls at him. However, being that he has two women hanging off him at the time, she dismisses him. But, he can’t get her face out of his mind.

Patricia Jacobs has sworn of men and for good reason. When she literally runs into Jonathon she is not sure what to think of the handsome playboy. Jon isn’t really looking for a serious relationship at all. In fact he is with two other girls when he first meets Patti. However, right from the start Jon couldn’t stop thinking about Patti nor could he explain why she consumed his every thought. Patti isn’t convinced that Jon is boyfriend material but that doesn’t stop her growing feelings for him. ...more

Hummmmmmmmm now when I started this book, I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to like it. Because we have the typical womanizer man who meets girl and decides he’s going to change his ways overnight for her. Kinda seems like a normal book these days, but I have to say that I was completely shocked with how much I enjoyed this book!
I think that the reason why I liked it so much was Jonathon’s mom. I know that might sound crazy, but honestly the woman was cracking me up! And his father as we

J.C. Valentine is the USA Today and International bestselling author of the Night Calls and Wayward Fighters Series and the Forbidden Trilogy.
