Keeping my family's secret meant living in the shadows and guarding my heart. Then Nic Marcelli came into my life with a force I couldn't resist. Devastatingly handsome and way too cocky, he was from a world different from mine – a world of designer clothes, brunches, and fancy cars, a world I didn't understand, a world that would never accept me.

I fought him and my desire, but in a moment of weakness, I caved. I thought he'd be nothing more than a fling, someone to have fun with until graduation. Then we'd go our separate ways. I was wrong. If I had known then the sacrifices he'd make to stay by my side, I never would’ve surrendered to his love.

My Review:

I am a huge fan of LG Castillo’s Lash series and when she wrote the Strong and Wilde serial I was in awe at how utterly amazing it was. It gave me chills and had me wanting more after each part. Secrets & Surrender was no different I was very excited to be able to read Nic and Mandi’s story.

Mandi is just a crazy wild girl with a lot of secrets, she is very outspoken and does things to the beat of her own drum. Nic is head over heals for her and he is an extremely sweet guy with a lot of home problems. They are just perfect for each other. Since I read the Strong and Wilde series  the beginning of this book was like a sort of refresh for me but in Mandi and Nic’s POV I liked it but I have always wondered what happened after they graduated and of course you get a very good glimpse and then the end! WOW I cannot wait for the next one, I felt so bad for Mandi and am eager to see what happens next. Since this is a serial the ends are cliffhangers but Holy cow, can Mrs. Castillo write a cliffhanger! I had chills and even now wish I had the next one already in my hands. Once again she did a fantastic job writing amazing characters and a story that screams READ ME! Loved it 🙂

  1. I am going to have to pick up one of her books because I love the sound of both the hero and the heroine! Though I wouldn’t have thought this YA from the look of the cover. 😛 I will put aside my annoyance at cliffhangers. Lmao
