Review ~ Deep Surrendering (Episode 1) by Chelsea M. Cameron.

Title: Deep Surrendering (Episode 1).
Author: Chelsea M. Cameron.
Genre: New Adult.
Release Date: March 20, 2014.

She's all about rules. He lives by none but his own. When these two meet, the results could be disastrous.

When Marisol Everly's friend Rory sets her up with Fin Herald, Marisol doesn't expect that it will amount to anything, .but that was before she saw Fin's searing blue eyes and mischievous smile. Not to mention, he seems absolutely fascinated by her mundane life. He's everything that a girl could want, but there's something else that ripples under the surface of his flirty behavior. Something darker. Something that fascinates Marisol, but scares her at the same time. Is she willing to risk falling into an abyss she might not get out of?


Deep Surrendering (Episode 1) was exactly the opener to the series of novellas I was looking for – full of intrigue and mystery and a plot that could just go anywhere.

For such a short story, Chelsea M. Cameron did a great job at developing the main character Marisol. Even though there’s a long way left in this short story series, we learnt a bit about her family, her studying, her friendships and even her ex-boyfriend. I loved her friendship with Chloe too. The author touched on a lot and it helped me quickly feel connected with Marisol and I liked her a lot.

As for Fin, Chelsea really left me in suspense about him. He’s an interesting character and we still have so much left to learn about him. With that, Deep Surrendering probably isn’t the book for people who aren’t keen on waiting since the fact that it will run over around 12 to 14 novellas, one every month, means there will probably be a lot of small cliff-hangers. For me though, I love this format and I’m counting down the days until April 17 when the next instalment is released.

Deep Surrendering had a fascinating plot and was written brilliantly by the author. It was fast-paced and full of chemistry. The ending was sudden and abrupt but in a good way because it’s left me itching to find out what happens next. I can’t wait for Episode 2!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
