Surrender to Me by Ashley Piscatelli Blog Tour

Rebecca Chase has never been interested in dating, and definitely not in relationships. She only had two goals in life, to get her college degree and to get the hell away from her house. When she meets Lucas everything that she thought she had wanted was now turned upside down.

Lucas Masterson has it all money, fame, and his dream job of being in the music industry. He knows that most people are just out for themselves and will use him as much as they can. When he meets Becca he realizes that he never really knew what he wanted. He thinks that she is the most amazing person he has ever met, but can he balance her and his crazy life?

 Can two people who come from completely different worlds make it work or will the people trying to tear them apart succeed?

Get ready to get lost in this crazy romantic adventure and surrender yourself to Lucas and Becca.

Ashley Piscitelli lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. On top a writing career, she is a full-time student and a full-time mom. She loves spending time with her kids, although she has to hide the computer from them when she is writing! She love being active and being outdoors, especially if it involves any kind of shopping.
She has always been passionate about writing. She loves to read romance books and feels like being able to lose yourself in a book is one of the more exciting aspects. The books she loves to read and write will be ones that make you feel for the characters. Ashley believes that you should have an opinion on every character in a book whether you love them, hate them, or think they are up to something.
She also believes that the most important critic is your reader, so she loves to hear from the readers. She want her fans to be open & talk to her about what they want for the characters in the story, and what they would like to see happen.

Okay, let me start by saying what bothered my with this book. I felt it was missing depth. Maybe that is the wrong word, because it wasn't a shallow book and neither were the characters. Maybe its best to say I wanted more. More details. More information. Dare I say, more of their relationship, more of her mom? I felt like we built up to this relationship where Becca is so insecure and Luke is always reassuring her, but it was never called into question. His insecurities were used against him, but really that's it. She always talks about the paparazzi and how they scare her, but nothing else happened. No mentions of her in the press, they don't mention what she wears, nothing. So it's like so much is touched on, but nothing was really delved into. Except his trust issues. Now that is a totally different ball game. Okay, don't go throwing tomatoes at me.. I did like the book, I just wanted the issues to be discussed more in depth. So let's talk about the good stuff..
Luke and Becca are sexy as hell. I love that Becca made him wait, made him almost prove she was different. And I love that he did. That he didn't pressure her. The boy knows how to handle himself. . and by handle himself, I mean screw like a god! He also loves her curves and her non-size zero body and broke ass. I totally love that. I just wish that their love could have held back his insecurities. That he wouldn't have flipped like he did when he saw what he saw. That he would have trusted their love, trusted her. I just wanted to punch both of his tour mates for what they did. Jealous poopheads. Yeah, I said it. Gah! They were so frustrating. And Becca, I just wanted to shake her! Stop trusting everyone! Lord have mercy woman!! All in all I did really like this book, I wish we didn't have to wait for another book. Like I said, I just wanted more. More of an ending. 

              I give Surrender to Me 3 hearts.
