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.
This book wasn’t your normal rock star story. At least to me it wasn’t. Becca and Luke meet in the parking lot of a liquor store. She’s getting her mom her nightly fix and as she’s leaving, he asks if she could jump off his car because the battery is dead. She has no clue who he is, not that she would anyway but still. As a thank you he wants to take her to dinner. Albeit reluctantly, she accepts the date for the following night.
Just as Becca is heading home her best friend, Jen, calls and says she won tickets to the concert that night and Jen wants her to go with her. Once at the concert Jen heads to the bathroom and buys Becca a t-shirt with the lead singer’s face on it. Low and behold, it’s Luke staring back at her! Stunned and speechless is a good way to describe her feelings at this point. And as she’s telling Jen the story, she sees Luke on stage. Stunned is also a good way to describe Luke. Certain she had no idea who he was, he decides he’ll get it figured out on their date. That is, if she still wants to go.
From their date and on, things just fall into place for them. There is chemistry as well as genuine feelings for each other. There are a few people that aren’t too happy with Luke taking a liking to Becca but he pretty much tells him they can stick their feelings where the sun don’t shine.
And what I meant about it not being the normal rock star story…Luke doesn’t seem to be a big partier, girls weren’t trying to hang all over him, except for one and you’ll meet her once you read the book. He calls his dad for advice and has a great relationship with most everyone around. I loved that he was fiercely protective of Becca and wanted to give her anything she wanted or needed. What I liked about Becca? She wanted something better for her life and she was working towards that, all on her own. She argued with Luke every time he wanted to buy her something and she stood her ground about not moving too fast.
Even with all this, I still felt the formula was familiar and seemed to know where the story was going before we got there. I liked it but didn’t love it. I know everyone’s opinion is different, and this is just mine. So definitely make the decision for yourself. If you like a hot rock star romance, then you’ll enjoy Surrender to Me.
