Hi, book buddies! I was anticipating this installment since the promising ending of episode 3. I'm now in tune with this series of novellas and don't want to miss any part of DEEP SURRENDERING, by Chelsea M. Cameron.
Marisol is determined to help Fin face his demons when it comes to intimacy. Despite all her misgivings and concessions to Fin's daring lovemaking, she's sure the darkness within him can be dispelled. Somehow, she'll prove it to him that mending is possible through gentleness and trust. However, they have little time together. And he's a challenge like no other.
I definitely liked the effort Marisol puts into helping Fin relax and getting to know him better. Even though there are no guarantees, she believes in them as a couple.
It feels real and far from easy how the author describes this process of pushing through emotional barriers. Both characters strain to find the path towards deep, true connection unimpeded by their fears. Fin keeps sharing dark secrets from his past, afraid of that one particular thing that will be too much to bear. I think in this episode we finally learn the meaning of the title. There's much evolution in their relationship both in and out of bed. I really enjoyed every page.
Also, they get a little playful at times so it is a lot of fun too.
Now, about that ending... sexy and bittersweet. I'm so pumped up for episode 5.
July 17th, wait for me!
Chelsea M. Cameron
For the first time since their relationship started, Fin and Marisol are on different pages in the bedroom, but Marisol is determined to make their last few days together count. Each moment is precious, but each shreds her fragile heart a little more. Can they get back on track and figure out a way to stay together even with thousands of miles between them?

“Now, you should know that this an activity I do exclusively alone. I don’t even think Chloe knows that I do this. This is where I come when I’m upset, or depressed, or when a certain boy is being mean to me.”
Fin raised his hand.
“I’m going to take a shot in the dark and guess that I’m the boy to which you’re referring.”
“You might be,” I said as we walked toward the pond, pulling out the loaf of bread. I handed him a piece and we sat together on one of the benches. It was another lazy summer night, everyone moving slowly in the warm air.
“Now we wait.”
He stared down at the bread as if he’d never seen it before. “For what?”
“Haven’t you ever fed ducks in the park?”
He shook his head.
