really liked it

There are not many adults who can claim that they never made a vow in childhood or young adulthood that they were determined to stick to as an adult. There are few adults who actually hold to their childhood vows because blood of childhood runs hot and grownup responsibilities and emotions will often cool that blood, especially when it comes to vows made to never get married or fall in love. Nate Archer made such a vow in the wake of frequent abuse at the hands of his mother's husband, believing that any institution that was more important to a woman than her role as mother couldn't possibly be any good. Nate's vow gets tested in this well-crafted second chance romance from Lauren Hawkeye when Nate returns to his hometown for the wedding of a childhood friend who did not stick by his vow to never get married.

The chemistry between Nate and Ellie is phenomenal and is born from two people who have known each other most of their lives. There are themes of Dominance and submission but not so strong that this could truly be labeled a BDSM romance. The sex scenes are hot and push the book into mature reader territory, but I really enjoyed the storytelling and how Nate comes to realize that some things, and some people, are worth breaking a childhood vow over.
