"I would burn this city down if that's what it would take to have you."

Vow is the second book in the Andino + Haven Duet. After an intense and passionate love affair that ended in a heartbreaking separation, Andino is gearing up for the fight of his life. Andino must maintain his honorable status in "the family" by leading his men AND find a way to win back the love of his life. Although Haven does not meet the typical "criteria" for a mob boss' wife, she is the only one Andino wants to spen

All Andino wants is a life with Haven. However, his life, his duty, and his family expect certain things from him - things that exclude the possibility of forever with her. If you know anything about Andino, you'll know that he is the only dictator in his life that matters. What he wants, he gets... by any means necessary. Nothing was going to stop him and neither the boss nor a possible war would stand in his way.

I loved how masterful and manipulative Andino was. He knew what he wanted, he knew

It’s still about “His Family. The Legacy. Duty”....

Ok so I’m not breaking a vow when I say that this didn’t have the wow of book 1, but dam if it wasn’t good.
As the author doesn’t publish a chronological reading order - but allows readers to choose their own preferred reading preference, it gets confusing. I read John and Siena’s stories before Andino’s and Haven’s and as they run parallel in time lines, I knew to expect certain happenings and how they played out, so this book lost a certain amo

Re-read July 2019 - I didn't think this could get any better the second time around and I was wrong. It. was. magnificent. I'll probably read it again sometime, I loved the duet that much.

Original review
Take one hella hot, manipulative Capo/Boss in waiting, add in a strong, feisty take no prisoners heroine, twists and turns aplenty, a hint of the foribdden, so many oh hell no, he did NOTs and picking up after a doozy of a cliffhanger with Duty and you have another Bethany-Kris masterpiece.

5 WOW Stars

A vow is a promise or oath...... and Andino Marcello has taken a vow of duty, respect and honor for the Marcello Family. He has been tapped to become the next Boss but at what cost does his vow to the Family cost him. The conclusion to Andino and Haven’s love story isn’t for the faint of heart. There is angst, manipulation, heartbreak, hope and eventually love. Bethany Kris and her talented and spirited words create magic and mayhem in Vow that had me addicted to my kindle.

This story
2 stars for turning a perceived strong heroine into a pathetic mess.

This book had two elements to it:
1. Time where the hero and heroine were apart
2. Sex scenes

This relationship turned extremely abusive. In a nutshell, the hero puts the h "on ice" and doesnt commit to being with her until the very end of the book. He would enter and exit her life with weeks or months in between. And in between that time, the h would act like a kicked puppy and claim that she hated the H but when he would come

GAHHH!!! This book was SO unbelievably amazing. I seriously didn't think that I could love anything more than Duty but Vow just dropped the mic on that argument. This story was written with such brilliant emotion in every word. I absolutely love Haven and Andino from the bottom of my heart. It was so hard to finish their story as I never wanted it to end!

From the very beginning of this book Kris took my emotions in hand and had me at her mercy with every word. I felt tears clogged in my throat b

This book was just full of all the things that I love. What I absolutely loved the most though... Andino's mind. The plotting, the manipulating, the staying 5 steps ahead that his mind was made of. He wanted what he wanted and no one and nothing were going to stand in his way. He was not going to be what everyone expected him to, and if they wanted him to wear the crown, he would wear it his way, on his terms.
Haven was in so much pain, but still so strong and determined. She loved Andino like no

I have read a lot of Bethany-Kris's series and have enjoy all of them. I have read about the Marcellos, Donati and DeLuca families. Then we move onto the children of Lucien, Dante and Gio. John and Sienna, Catherine and Cross and this one, Andino and Haven. We meet both of these characters in the previous books and to be honest I thought Andino a bit of an ass. He wants Haven but he seems to just keep hurting her over and over. In this book we find out why he is the way he is. We see him maneuve ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
VOW by Bethany-Kris is book Two in the Andino & Haven series. This continues the story of Andino Marcello and Haven Murphy. You should read the previous book to fully enjoy their continuing story.
This book has so much emotions with it. Haven trying to deal with her feelings toward Andino. Andino cares for Haven but he keeps hurting her because he can't fight his feeling but he needs to keep away.
Overall really enjoyed this book.

5 'Legendary' STARS

When we stumble upon Andino in book two he is irritated and damn bitter for good reason. Andino denied his true feelings rejecting the only person that made him feel whole for the sake of his duty.

Walking away was the right thing to do for her, for his Haven, but the right thing isn't always easy. Staying away from Haven and ignoring the natural pull of their gravity isn't easy.

In the chaos and forced distance for the greater good Andino and Haven fall back on what makes sens

"Every inhale burned.
"Every exhale ached."

Bethany-Kris always brings perfection into her stories. Whether it is a mafia contemporary romance with the feels or a thrilling mafia with tons of action, she delivers every single time. I was holding my breath. Reading Duty, straight up killed me. Well, Vow wrapped every single moment with a brilliant and satisfying bow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Vow was absolutely ELECTRIFYING. The drama. The suspense. The action. The pent-up tension. Vow knocked it out of the

He is expected to be the Boss - the perfect leader of the Family. But nobody asks him what is his wish and what are his expectations.
He made his choice for the duty and family but he wants more. He wants to live his life. I’ve always loved Andino for his attitude. He sets the goals and he knows how to reach them. He needs Heaven and she will be his no matter what.
As with all Bethany’s books I loved this one greatly. The Marcellos were my absolute favorites. Her every book is a mafia masterpiece

So, I love this author. But this is a it’s me not you kind of review.

I’m coming to realize very quickly, I like her older works much more. I like the family bonds, the Catholic Church, the old, old school feel of it.

This heroine was, well, just too modern for me, for this family. I knew right away in book one that I wasn’t connecting but I powered thru, because again, I love this authors older works. The original Marcellos, Chicago war, etc. so, like I said, its just me. I tend to like violent,
This duology centers around the same mafia conflict as John and Sienna's duology. However, most of the intense mafia stuff occurred around John, so Andino's side of the conflict was rather boring and completely unnecessary. This duology was only good for learning about Andino and Haven's relationship. It didn't provide any extra useful information about the mafia angle. Honestly I wish I'd never bothered with this duology. It paled in comparison to John and Sienna's books. Those were amazing.

Haven is worthy of a Marcello! Although Andino tugged on my heart strings as every Marcello does, Haven is one of my favorite heroines!

Vow is the heart-stopping conclusion to Haven and Andino’s story. Vow has everything we expect from a Marcello novel. Sacrifice, intrigue, danger, and epic drama! I absolutely love Andino and Haven’s incredible story!

5 stars!

I’m still reeling from the emotional turmoil this book put me through. At the end of Duty, I was left heartbroken. I didn’t know how long this book was going to take to repair it. Inknew going into this book that it was going to be an emotional roller coaster.

Haven knew from the get go that Andino was trouble. Trouble to her heart and delicious trouble to her body. She had no clue how much he was actually going to break it before he repaired it. Although she supposed to stay away from him in ord

Haven was leaving, her mother’s cancer had returned, and she didn’t need to be here anymore. Listening to the radio she heard about a shooting, and Andino had been shot.
Haven was taking Andino in and she should have said no to him, he was fine, then, she saw his injury. After some clarity, that he discarded her she goes to leave, but he stopped her with a kiss, she couldn’t resist him and agrees to be his for the night.
Andino can’t stay away from Haven, he loves her more than anything, but he h

Vow brings the long-awaited continuation of the story of Andino and Haven, two people who are perfect together, but fate, or rather duty, doesn't allow them to be together.

I again will not go into the merits of the story, not to give any spoilers, but I can say that the character of the book for me was Andino. If anyone had any doubts how manipulative he is.His mind is fascinating and it was delicious and frustrating at times to see that he doesn't take no for an answer and always manipu

Andino and Haven stole my heart in this amazing book that was way too much emotional for me.But,still I loved it.

This book really showed me how sneaky and manipulative Andino really is,and I love him because of that.But for the most part of this book I was just mad at him.Mad because he hurt Haven so many times.He constantly pushed her away just to bring her back again and he lied to her when he really shouldn't.But,he did loved her a lo

That was the best conclusion of Haven and Andinos story that you can think of!
I loved every single word of it and I was just so exited when I heard that the second book of their story was going to be released soon.
I think they are my favorite couple in this universe of Bethany’s books.

I was perfectly able to feel all the hurt that Haven was feeling throughout the book. I often asked myself, how this was supposed to be fixed again by Andino. But he always managed to do because he had a big plan f

Vow is the stunning conclusion Andino and Haven's story. And I must say that it is beyond what I have ever expected and a whole lot more!

As a huge fan of Bethany-Kris' works, I have naturally been so invested with the characters from the Legacy series. But what's so great about her books is that her plot will never fail to surprise you at every turn.

Andino and Haven hit a few bumps in the road before they got their happily ever after but I was rooting for them all this time. So it was such a sw

Let me just tell you, I have read this book TWICE since getting my hands on it.

Andino is a manipulative mastermind in my opinion. Some might hate how manipulative he his, but then again, he's about to be Boss of the biggest Mafia Crime Family. Do you think he can be a pushover and not go for what he wants? And I am not just talking about his love life, I'm also talking about his place in the family. Andino has a Duty and he is making his Vow to get what he wants. EVERYTHING he wants.
