From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a sexy new contemporary stand-alone series.
Hazel Noble has survived horrors she wouldn’t inflict on her worst enemy. Since then, she’s healed, found herself, and connected with a group of women she’s proud to call her friends. However, when they make a pact to start looking for love, Hazel finds herself not only up first but also forced to face a past she thought she’d escaped.
Cross Brady has no need for a relationship. As the oldest of five, he’s always been the one his family can rely on. Now, all he wants is to work in peace and live his life. His priorities shift dramatically, though, when Cross finds himself in Hazel’s path.
Though the two initially fight their connection, they soon learn that it’s safer to fall for each other than keep running from what’s holding them back—not to mention, who wants them dead.
Hazel Nobel has escaped the horrors of her past and started a new life for herself in Boulder, Colorado where she and a few of her friends have made a pact to help each other find their perfect ones by setting them up on blind dates, Hazel is first up. So when the handsome bearded gentlemen sits down at her table she thinks her friend did well in finding her someone she was at least attracted to, only to find out that they have both mistakenly taken the other for someone else. But hey, things happen for a reason right!?!
Cross Brady is the oldest of the five Brady siblings, he doesn't have time for dating he is to consumed with his business, Chris Cross Furniture, and taking care of his sister Arden but now that she is with Liam he finds he has some time on his hands. So when he sits down at Hazel's table thinking she is the client he is supposed to meet, only to find out his mistake a short time later, he can't help but want to spend some of his time with her.
Their chemistry was instant, it's as if you put water up to boil and within thirty seconds you burnt the pot, yes it was that hot. This story was much more than their chemistry though, Carrie Ann Ryan gives us a story of family, friends, suspense, hope, survival, and love. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us next.
The PROMISE ME SERIES is another in the long line of spin-offs from the original Montgomery Ink Series and I for one couldn't be happier. This series is about the four brothers of Arden Brady who married Liam Montgomery in WRAPPED IN INK, so if you have read that book you will see some familiar faces. I love the way these books can be read as a standalone if you choose to read it that way or if you have been reading some of the different Montgomery Ink Series you will get a treat with different people popping up. No matter which way you choose to read this book I am sure you will enjoy it.
