No two Mia Sheridan books are ever the same. Each book of hers is a new and refreshing experience. Her stories are a vibrant mix of her beautiful writing, lovable characters and some of THE most gorgeous settings I’ve ever read about. In Grayson’s Vow we follow the story of an imperfect pair of strangers who come together in a marriage of convenience, but who end up falling into a deep and long lasting love. I was absolutely hooked from the very first chapter.
Kira Dallaire is desperate.
Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.
Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.
Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.
What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they’ll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.
As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.
Mia Sheridan is well known for her intensely deep, and often dark and desperate romances, but Grayson’s Vow didn’t seem to carry a lot of that heaviness that her other stories have. It had a lighter. almost summery feel to it that left me feeling very satisfied throughout that book. Don’t get me wrong, it still had some pretty serious undertones, but not the stark, bleak, desperation I’ve felt (and loved) from the last 2 or 3 books of hers. This is what I mean by each of her books being so different – I love that she changed things up and gave us, the readers, something different but equally as beautiful.
The story is told in dual POV so you get to fully experience and appreciate both sides of the story. Their personality traits seemed to balance each other out perfectly – I enjoyed Kira’s playful and mischievous side equally as much as I swooned over Grayson’s damaged hero vibe he had going on – yin and yang.
Grayson’s Vow was blast from start to finish with elements of everything that make up a great romance – fantastic writing, broody hero, sassy-pants heroine, gorgeous supporting characters, all wrapped up in a beautiful setting. This is another winner by Mia Sheridan!
