Elle says…

When I Surrender is the sequel in Kendall Ryan’s When I Break Series. If you haven’t read the first novel, When I Break, you must read it before diving into this book. Knox and McKenna’s story ends in a rather shocking cliffhanger at the end of When I Break, so you will be lost if you don’t follow the series in order.

I was blown away by When I Break and seriously dying to get my hands on When I Surrender. This series is tumultuous and packed full of drama and angst. There are moments of hope, romance, and plenty of passion woven throughout the plot as well. When I Surrender has exceeded all expectations set by When I Break and this has easily become my favorite series Kendall Ryan has written and a must read series for anyone addicted to angst.

McKenna and Knox’s relationship hangs in a delicate balance after the shocking events in the first novel. I loved watching as they tiptoed the line between friendship and romance as they tried to figure out how they could fit into each other’s lives. Each character exposed more of themselves and their backgrounds in this story. It was beautiful to see such vulnerability coupled with the heavily constructed emotional walls both characters have spent their lives building. Don’t worry readers; the fire between this pair is still an inferno. Kendall heats up the pages of this novel with plenty of steamy scenes to balance to heavier moments.

Questions leftover from the first book are resolved in When I Surrender and are satisfying in that aspect. However, as current loose ends are tied, more drama unfolds in the story leaving the reader with a new set of unanswered, nerve-wracking woes. Kendall Ryan toyed with my emotions and taunted me with the potential of a happily ever after only to leave me hanging until the final installment of the When I Break Series releases. Some people may think this kind of emotional torment is cruel, but I have loved every second of it and can’t help but want more.

If you are looking for a light and fluffy read, Kendall Ryan’s When I Break Series is not for you. When I Break and When I Surrender are angst-filled reads fueled by passion and drama.  If you’re ready to be emotionally shredded and left begging for more, introduce yourself to Knox and McKenna and settle in for one hell of a literary roller coaster.
