Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.
For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.
Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.
Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.
Will and Sarah stare down an unknown path, sensing destiny will not wait long before it comes to take them. Wracked with doubt, they wonder if their love was real. Caged by guilt, they both feel tempted by others intent on stealing their hearts.
Fate plays hardest when love is tested. And Will and Sarah are no exception, letting go of their happy past to embrace hope for an uncharted future. Love plays hardest when fate tests. And so it is, even through their trials of the heart, Will and Sarah never really stop loving each other. Theirs is a love so real and pure that each just wants the other to find happiness, even if it's with another.
But fate does not surrender so easily. Dealing blow upon blow, both Will and Sarah are each struck by jolting events that take them to the very edge of life, itself. What happens to love when life is on the line? Can they both relinquish control when love is on the line? Will fate even allow them to find out?
5 out of 5 Stars
I freaking loved this book!! It went far beyond my expectations. Surrender to Fate was sad, sweet and heartbreaking. There were so many moments in the book that I would feel the urge or need to bawl my eyes out.
I also believe that Jacelyn Rye has this amazing way of writing that has the power to make the reading audience feel the emotion of her characters. The story starts out with Will and Sarah, both best friends in love with each other. Though fate doesn't make it easy for them because as soon as Will confesses, Sarah is ripped away from him. Even a million miles away they still think of each other but can their love withstand distance?? And supporting characters like Margaret (who I did not like at all!) do not make it easy for them !! OMG and the cliffhanger at the end, it was sooo....... well lets just say that i really need the next book but i don't know when it'll be out!! :(
This absolutely got my blood pumping, there are not a lot of books this passionate and emotional. I would definitely recommend it to those of you who love steamy books with so much drama and passion that leave you feel wanting more.
