Summary: (from goodreads) Forbidden love, intoxicating power, and the terror of control…

Raine has always been a good girl. She lives by the rules in Freedom. After all, they are her father’s rules: He’s the Director. It’s because of him that Raine is willing to use her talent—a power so dangerous, no one else is allowed to know about it. Not even her roommate, Vi.

All of that changes when Raine falls for Gunner. Raine’s got every reason in the world to stay away from Gunn, but she just can’t. Especially when she discovers his connection to Vi’s boyfriend, Zenn. Raine has never known anyone as heavily brainwashed as Vi. Raine’s father expects her to spy on Vi and report back to him. But Raine is beginning to wonder what Vi knows that her father is so anxious to keep hidden, and what might happen if she helps Vi remember it. She’s even starting to suspect Vi’s secrets might involve Freedom’s newest prisoner, the rebel Jag Barque...

Surrender did what its called. It surrender me to its story. I was crossing my fingers that when I began reading the sequel in this series, that it would hold up to the greatness that Possession was. I think Elana with me doesn't have to worry about disappointing with this tale. Back to back 5 tree reviews are not a bad thing to have. Also again I will mention how much I love the covers in this series. So simple, yet so meaningful!

Surrender continues were Possession sort of left off but here comes the twist. We are not following Vi and Jag story, we are now following Raine and Gunner. I don't know which pair I love more. The problems are the same for them as they were for Vi and Jag. Probably worse, since Vi and Jag are under the control of the Freedom. Vi especially is not who we fell in love with, she is like a vegetable. Raine has been assigned to have Vi as her roommate and report any changes that Vi shows. See Raine's father is the head honcho behind Freedom. Of course what Daddy doesn't know, won't hurt him right? Raine is involved in the resistance and has recruited Gunner to the mix. They both have very special abilities that are like having pure gold in your hands. Raine's mission is to go against what daddy dear thinks is right. What can happen when you have two matched people that are being pulled together and away from their matches? Some highly upset people which include their matches and Daddy dearest. 

Their is so much non-stop action packed twist and turns throughout Surrender, that you might need to call a time out. Its a book you won't be able to put down until the last word is read. Elana has the gift of writing so the reader is sucked in to her books. What a world Elana has created, from the scenery to the profound characters. You just have no reason to not be entertained by this series. I will give a warning, be prepared for a bad-ass ending. Its one heck of a cliffhanger. 

So A: Go pre-order Surrender, B: Buy Possession if you haven't read it first, C: Make sure all the cleaning and cooking have been completed, so when you ignore your duties no one gives you the stink eye, D: Happy reading!!!
