It’s fourteen years later and she’s still plagued with nightmares. She can’t remember what happened or who was responsible. Her shrink thinks it’s her mind protecting her from the truth. Zoey needs to release the mem ...more
One of the best books I've read this year. I first discovered this author by reading book 1 Luke's Redemption in this series and it was 4.5 stars. This book was the perfect second chance romance with a healthy dose of mystery/murder that kept me glued to my seat. Gray and Zoey were young lovers when they were ripped apart by tragedy. Zoey has never recovered from the horrible night she lost her family and finally turns to her "safe place" (Gray) for help in remembering the horrible night she has ...more

Contemporary Romance, really any kind of romance to be honest, is what I love to read.  Give me a great story with lots of grit, steamy romance, and an entertaining plot, and I’m hooked.  This book didn’t disappoint and I love that I get to discover new, at least to me authors, whose work I haven’t read before.  I don’t think an avid reader has too many authors to stalk, oops I mean follow.

This is book two of A King Security book series.  I didn’t have

Zoey Morgan and Gray Walker belong together. Growing up on their parents’ adjoining ranches in Denton, Texas, they’re best friends, then, as Zoey matures, more than friends. Gray has always known Zoey would eventually be his; she begs him to take her innocence, but he wants to wait for the perfect time and setting.

On Zoey’s nineteenth birthday, however, everything changes. During the celebration, someone invades the Morgan home, drugs and kills her whole family, then brutally beats and rapes Zoe

Zoey Morgan - She was nineteen when it happened. The love of her life walked away. Not because of the awful things that happened to her but because she closed herself off to him. In fact, she closed a lot off things off. Including most of what happened the night, it was thought she betrayed the love her life and got herself engaged to his brother. An engagement she never remembered happened since she had been drugged. A night that her mind refuses to remember who did this to her and her family. ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book I have read from this author and this is the second book in this series. It can be read as a standalone. The writing was great, I loved the emotions that were captured in this book. I loved the HEA, even though they had to go through many obstacles to get their happy ending.

Zoey has really done well with herself after all she has been through. She lost almost her entire family and still became a top surgeon that works

Wow. I just finished Gray’s Promise and it was everything and nothing like I expected. Anni Fife is a new to me author, and I’m so glad I took the chance to read an ARC of this book!

I was sucked in from the very first words. I love a great romantic suspense. Gray’s Promise is just that along with it being a second chance romance between the two lead characters, Zoey and Gray.

They’re both suffering from the memories from a horrible tragedy that occurred fourteen years ago. Zoey has buried the me

Gray's promise is book 2 in the A King Security Series. I read book one, Luke's Redemption, a while back and loved it. I was lucky enough to receive an email from Annie herself asking me if I wanted to read book 2. I of course jumped at the chance. I am so glad that I did. As good as Luke's Redemption was Gray's Promise tops it. To me this book, actually both book's are movie quality.

Gray’s Promise is the second book in the King Security series by author Anni Fife. This suspenseful romance is utterly spellbinding and well worth the year wait! I do suggest you read Luke’s Redemption, the first book in the series, before beginning this one.

Now, it is possible for you to read this book as a standalone, but know that there is an incident that occurs in the first book. Zoey has blocked out that horrible night, and she

I read Luke's Redemption and loved it and just could not wait for Anni's second book in the series.
It arrived this morning and what a book it is. I started reading and could not put it down until I finished it.
The story line is fantastic, a dreadful tragedy that wrecks the relationship between Gray and Zoey.
Fourteen years later Zoey tracks down Gray and pleads with him to help her get her over the trauma that is destroying her life.

Gray’s Promise is the second book in Anni Fife’s King Security Series. There are several characters from the first book, Luke’s Redemption, but this can easily be read as a stand alone. When I say that this book is nothing like the first one, that would be an understatement. Gray’s Promise was much more brutal both physically and emotionally. It is clearly a romance but there is a lot of mystery and suspense in regards to a murder that happened during the heroine’s, Zoey Morgan

Exciting new Author ......

This is Anni Fyfe’s second novel in the King Security Series.
I enjoyed Book One but this I enjoyed more.

Zoey and Gray have a turbulent relationship but a monstrous tragedy from the past keeps them apart for many years. Slowly the mystery unfolds amid exciting chemistry between the lovers.

Anni Fyfe is a new author who writes with fast-moving descriptive prose full of sizzling suspense for readers who like erotic romance - and are kept guessing until the very end.

Wowsa, what an utterly tragic story. It’s full of heartbreak, anguish, tragedy, undescribable actions, and love. Love and hope are the positivity in this story. They are the only thing that kept me reading, knowing, that things had to get better.

My emotions were all over the place. I’d be happy, I’d be sad, I’d be angry. It was a multitude of feelings that I just couldn’t keep co

This was a second chance story if there ever was one. Two people with a strong history who have spent years suffering without each other are brought back together again. But they have demons between them (and some of their own) that they have to face before they can find a happy ending. It was intense at times, pulling at my heartstrings over and over again.

A surgeon scarred by her past finally wants to confront her repressed memories, but needs her meant-to-be but-never-happened to help her, despite how often she’d spurned him in the past.
First of all, I have a problem with this title. This is clearly her story, so why does the title feature the man?
There are three parts to this novel, one more prominent than the others; that of course is the love story. Her psychological well-being is another, while the third is the mystery of what happened to he
