Knox’s hands wandered from my waist to my hips, where his fingertips made contact with bare skin fractures of heat crackled across my abdomen. “Don’t question this.” He leaned down to breath against my ear.

“We were two lost souls fighting to cling to something real.”….Knox
I don’t even really know how to express my feelings on this book!!!! I have so many things going through my head right now. I will admit this review will probably be on the short side because I don’t want to include spoilers in my review and a lot of what I want to say would give to much away.
When I Surrender is the second book in the When I Break series. I thought it was an excellent second book to a trilogy. Kendall did a fantastic job answering questions that were left over from book 1, but also created new ones that I am guessing will be answered in the final book.
This book starts off where When I Break ended ( Kind of ) There really isn’t any time lost, but let me just say this book started off with a BANG!!!! I was ready to leave Kendall a very nasty note with how this book started…..lol 😀 I am glad I was completely wrong. I thought she did a great job sucking us into this story and connecting even more to McKenna and Knox. I loved that we got to know these characters even more in this book. Some things are revealed in this book that help you understand McKenna and Knox better. I LOVED watching these two characters grow into stronger and better people. Don’t get me wrong, they still had their challenges to overcome and still at the end of this book, have challenges to overcome but you could still see how they were growing. I have to say I love Knox even more after reading this book then I did after I finished book 1. I was so glad to see this side of Knox, he is definitely in my Top 10 Book Boyfriend List!!!! I was also glad to see McKenna open up more in this installment. The things she tells Knox are things that needed to come out. And again….Can I just say that Knox and McKenna have AMAZING sexual chemistry!!!! Kendall really knows how to melt a pair of panties 😉
We do see Brian in this book also….I am just going to leave it at that because everything I want to say gives to much away. I still don’t really like Brian but I did feel bad for him towards the end.
Now the bad news……this book ended on another cliffhanger!!!!! Kendall is trying to kill me I believe. This one was torture. I can’t wait for book 3 in May. If you are NOT a FAN of Cliffhangers then I would definitely wait until all 3 books are out before meeting Knox and McKenna. With that said I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this book/series to everyone. This series is so different from anything she has written that it just sucks you in, but it is also a Kendall Ryan book, so you know it’s going to be GREAT!!!!
