Review "Dark Surrender by Rachel van Dyken"

* ARC provided in exchange of an honest review*

I grew up as a prince...
And lead the life of a King.
There isn't anyone or anything that doesn't want me, that isn't attracted to me. They can't help it. And I sure as hell don't want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one, simple, caress.
As a male siren it's my job to feed off emotion.
And I was happy to do it.
I am happy to do it.
What I'm not happy about? Being told I have to mate with some withering human and stay loyal to that one person for the next few centuries. There's a war coming and being the idiot I am--I offered to take one for the team in order to help a friend.
Now my sexual appetite is taking a freaking kick in the nuts.
And I'm left wondering if it's worth it.
If she's worth it, with messy hair and dirty human hands.
But I have a world to save.
A job to do.
Now, if only, she would just let me do it rather than fighting me at every turn. I've lived lifetimes as the most irresistible being on the planet.
Only to meet my match.
With one.
They say hells hot. They're wrong.
Because Hope, my little human, is way hotter.
And before this is over--she may just singe me alive.

I want to start this review with saying that I absolutely adore the author, Rachel van Dyken. She is a fun person to know and hang around. I really love her Eagle Elite series but I sadly didn't love this book. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for it. I read the first book but not the second. Maybe that didn't help either.
Anyway the reason I didn't like this book to much was because the story didn't have a nice flow for me. It all felt a bit rushed and random? I felt like there were pieces missing. I really liked the concept bu the connection between the H and h felt a but forced and rushed at one point.
I waited with my review till well after the release day to give the books a good chance.
Overall, this book felt oke for me. Didn't love it, nor hate it.  Please don't let my review keep you from reading this book!

What is this book all about 
This book focuses on Alex. Alex is a siren and if you've read the first two book you'd know who he is. Anyway it's time again for one of the elders (like Ethan in the first book) to get a mate in order to keep the species going. Anyhow a couple of people were called to meet with alex so that he could pick his mate. That's where he meets hope. In the beginning she seems to have a bit of a resistance thoward  him. Ofcourse that intrigues Alex. Who is this little human being that seems to be his match?
