Some lines should never be crossed . . . not even for love.
Sloan O’Malley just left her entire world behind—her family, her wealth, and even her real name. For the first time in her life, she’s free. She can live the “normal” life she’s always wanted. A life without fear. But there’s nothing safe about her intensely sexy next-door neighbor.
Jude MacNamara has no room for innocence in his life. Only revenge. Still, he’s never been able to walk away from the forbidden, and Sloan—who is every inch of pure, mouthwatering temptation—has forbidden written all over her. Only after it’s way too late does he discover the real danger: claiming Sloan as his puts a target on her back. To protect her, Jude is willing risk everything . . . and to hell with the consequences.
Guys. I think this was the book to pull me out of my long ass reading slump.
Forbidden Promises isn’t the first in the series, but it definitely was the first for me. I was instantly sucked in. Sloan’s mysterious presence and her dilemma are what kept me going. I loved the essence of innocence, but I gathered quickly she was anything but.
Danger lurked around every corner, for both Sloan and Jude. Can we just take a second to appreciate all the yumminess that is Jude? *swoon* I love how they complimented each other, and their chemistry was something to die for! Jude’s coaxing Sloan out of her shell was something else. I enjoyed every single moment of it!
Overall, Forbidden Promises delivered in its name and made for an intense read. I think the only thing I didn’t like about this book was its too many characters. While it can be read as a standalone, I do feel I would have gotten a better handle on the minor characters if I had read the previous books. I was unaware of all the families’ stories, how intertwined they really are, and I think that made it a tad difficult to follow along. As the story continued on, it became easier; however, I would not recommend starting the series with this book.
Take a look at my favorite quote from the book:
