Welcome to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where the air is heavy with desire—and sometimes dreams come true.

Ever since her mother kicked her out, twenty-year-old Robyn Gonzalez has been working the poles at the Devil’s Den, saving up to finish college and travel the world. With only her wits and her gorgeous body to rely on, Robyn has learned to be independent—fiercely independent. She’s never been tempted to let a man distract her from her dreams . . . until she meets the dead-sexy Garrick Dempsey.

The club’s new head of security, Garrick had walked away from a career as a mechanical engineer to return to his roots in Corpus Christi. He hadn’t planned on getting to know someone like Robyn, with her sinfully sweet combination of vulnerability and strength, at the Devil’s Den. She acts tough, but only because she’s been hurt. Soon Garrick knows he will do anything to win Robyn’s trust. And if that means surrendering to the red-hot chemistry between them, all the better.

Holy Crackling with Sexual Tension!  SURRENDER certainly keeps you on your toes with wanting these two to just get it on already...not that you have to wait TOO long, but within the first few pages you will be like "It's gettin hot in take off all your clothes..."

The story line is definitely different than I expected, there was some definite drama that I didn't see coming, which just added to the fun.  Garrick is not your typical "White Knight", he is a whole lotta Alpha man...and quite delicious might I add, and Robyn is definitely as tough as I was expecting, but I liked her vulnerable side, she allowed Garrick to see her, and I truly enjoyed those intimate times when I could feel the full on connection between these two.

Violetta Rand certainly didn't hold back with the sexiness in her debut New Adult romance, the first in the Devil's Den series.  If the next two in the series are like this, I know it will make for a happy Lisa!

New Adult readers will definitely enjoy this debut, not too dark, not to angsty, and just the right amount of naked Garrick...oh yeah!
