Bailey has been one of my favorite Westmoreland's since her character was introduced. Why? Because she reminds me a lot of myself. She's smart, sassy and to the point, but she loves her family more than anything. As you read through the Denver Westmoreland' stories you get glimpses of Bailey and her tough no-nonsense personality which makes you wonder what man has the ability to not only pique her interest but capture her heart.
Brenda did good when she choose Walker for Bailey, he's silent but firm, protective but gentle and lets not forget sexy. Poor Bailey fell head in before she could talk herself out of it and Walker was different. Although the scenario used to get them together has been done before by other authors and Ms. Jackson herself, it felt unique to this book. I strong suggest reading this book and if you haven't read from the beginning of the series to get to know Bailey.
And for those waiting on Bane's story ( Meeeee!!!) Make sure you read the epilogue (wink) ...more
Let me say this first, I looooovvvvveeee Brenda Jackson. She has written over 60 books and to my knowledge I've read them all. I've read them, loved tLet me say this first, I looooovvvvveeee Brenda Jackson. She has written over 60 books and to my knowledge I've read them all. I've read them, loved them and dreamed of the day my life would be turned upside down by one of the heroes in her books. So when I read A Lover's Vow I was a little disappointed. This is the third and final book in Jacksons' Granger series about brothers Jace,Caden and Dalton. The brother's suffered a horrible blow when their mother was murdered and their father was convicted as the killer and sent to prison. Years later the brothers are summoned home when their grandfather is on his death bed and makes the brothers promise to find the true killer.
The first book is a introduction to the family and what they've been through since the death of Sylvia Granger. It also gets the ball rolling with the investigation sees the older brother Jace meet his match. The second book focuses on middle brother Caden and his reunion with former girlfriend Shiloh with the suspense of the murder investigation in the background.
With this being the last book in the series my expectations were high and in the end the book left high and dry. The book was very predictable from the romance side of things (but then again so is every romance novel). The character of Dalton was arrogant, conceited and frankly annoying, and not in a sexy intriguing way. Needless to say I found myself rushing past the romance to find out who was the killer.
I'm no expert in mysteries, but normally throughout the investigation of a case the writer or tv show will introduce the killer in a roundabout way to through you off so when they are revealed you smack yourself for not putting together the clues. In this mystery I was completely confused because it wasn't someone we would've guessed and it seemed a little random.
All in all the book was ok. It doesn't turn me off from Brenda Jackson novels nor romance in general but if you haven't read the series and you're curious don't set your expectations to high....more
I love when authors make characters relatable, don’t get me wrong I love a swoon worthy book where the woman is perfect and the man is the next DenzelI love when authors make characters relatable, don’t get me wrong I love a swoon worthy book where the woman is perfect and the man is the next Denzel or Brad Pitt but let’s be real. Not all men have perfect manners, lots of money, looks to die for and know all the perfect words to make you fall in love. Which is why I liked Dexter Drake, yes he’s handsome, has a good job , a nice car and he’s also a little arrogant, in that “yeah im fine, women like me and I know it” way. He’s use to women chasing him which makes him perfect for Dr. Faye Buckner. Faye has just come back to the States from Haiti where she served as a volunteer to open her clinic. Her mentor gives her a week vacation at the Drake resort Dexter’s family owns. They have a brief across the lobby stare off but its at the birthday party of Papa Dee the family patriarch that they finally meet. Faye comes to Papa’s aid when he has a mini heart attack . Dexter personally thanks her by asking her out on a date and from then on it… Its ON!!
From the time they first catch each others eye you can tell there is a connection, but unlike most women Faye is a little hesitant to involve herself with Dexter for all the right reasons; he’s a playboy,she knows her time at the resort is limited and she doesn’t have time to get involved in a relationship with so much going on in her life. So does she keep her distance? of course not and eventually they become involved. Then reality sets in a Faye has to leave.
Faye becomes heavily involved with opening the clinic and her relationship with Dexter suffers. And it doesn’t help that an old friend who is also a doctor comes into the picture. This makes Faye question if a relationship with Dexter will ever work.They live in separate cities, live different lifestyles and have different approaches to life. So the question is can their relationship survive the distance and new competition? IDK (well I do know since I read it),but I want you to read it yourself then tell me what you think.
When Dexter meets the competition was funny as heck… Men! A Cute surprise at the end The meaning behind the book title <3
