From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the next standalone rockstar romance in her Seaside Pictures series…
I had his posters on my wall when I was sixteen and when I accidentally got pregnant in high school—his was the face I dreamt of when I closed my eyes at night.
Now, over twenty years later, that dream's turned into a reality.
Not only is Drew Amhurst in my tiny town of Seaside, live and in the flesh…
But he's mentoring my rockstar son.
Drew says he's mine for a week.
And he made me three promises.
"No strings attached."
"No falling in love."
"It's only seven days."
He's confident that he can help me rediscover myself both in and out of the bedroom, and I'm confident that he's too arrogant for his own good.
And at the end of seven days, he swears he'll walk out of my life the way he came into it.
The only problem is, the more I get to know him, the more I want to surrender the last pieces of my heart and beg him to stay.

Love this Series!
I love this series, this can be read as a stand alone. This one is my new favorite. I love Drew and Bronte together, they have great chemistry and they both deserve their happily ever after. This book made me laugh and cry. I was hooked from start to finish.
Terrific rockstar romance!
Sexy rock god! The Drew Amherst! This is a quick, easy read with an insta-love romance and the lust is sizzling. Drew as the living large, recovering addict is a rockstar deluxe. It took me awhile to warm up to him and his flippant, dirty talk. But he's hid from his demons and what better way than a cool persona and a sexy smirk. I loved the premise of one week with a sexy rockstar teaching a single mom how to get her groove back after only being a mom for fourteen years. I've followed these rockstar stories of Adrenaline and AD2 and these guys are addicting along with their beautiful women. I'm distressed that this wasn't one of my favorite of the series. I've been waiting for Drew's story especially after Provoke about Drew's protege and Bronte's son, Braden. Bronte is a strong heroine as the single mom of three and Drew's secret crush. But I didn't really feel the connection between Drew and Bronte even with their hot chemistry and some aspects of the story seemed unrealistic. The celibacy was crazy. By the end my heart was melting and the epilogue was wonderful. For me the star of the story was Bronte's youngest daughter, Amelia. I would love to see a story about her. Loved the interactions between the guys and the healing of Will and Drew's relationship. Overall a terrific addition to this exciting rockstar series that can be read in a day. The writing will pull you in and the characters are fabulous. Loved the interactions between the guys and the healing of Will and Drew's relationship. A sexy cherry on top of a fantastic rockstar series! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.
Sweet and charming read!
Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken takes us back to the Seaside, Oregon and the world of the rockers we love. Though this is part of the Seaside series, it can be read as a standalone, though I love all the books I have read in this series and recommend them. In Surrender we get Drew’s story and I loved getting in his head. He is fun, charming, and cocky, but he also carries the demons of his past. Then there is Bronte, who once dreamed of Drew when she was young and is now spending a week with him. The same man who hung on her walls. Talk about having your dreams come true. She had always done what was expected after having her children young, this is her chance to just let go and do what she wants.
Their time together was fun, sweet and steamy. They had amazing witty banter and so much chemistry. I loved watching Drew not only with Bronte, but her youngest daughter as well. Their story was emotional, a bit angsty and heartwarming. They were great characters and the secondary characters will have you laughing. A truly fun and charming summer read!
