Review: The Vow by Natalie Wrye

Category : Reviews

Synopsis:
Seven years ago, I gave my vow to a man.

Except it wasn’t a wedding…

Because Brett Jackson was the epitome of anti-marriage–a dirty-talking tattoo artist with a penchant for booze, bimbos and blue-eyed women.

I was none of those.

Guess that’s why he walks into my new apartment with my not-so-nice roommate on his arm…as her new boyfriend.

But this is not seven years ago. I’m over him; I really am.
So why does it bother me so much when he catches me naked in my new place?

Why does his searing stare at my body stay with me?

Why am I wishing for a repeat and wanting to break the most important vow I’ve ever made?

A vow that will break both me and Brett…and turn the Manhattan life I’ve built for myself upside down.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a full-length, stand alone, best friend’s brother/second chance romance with humor, twists and heat. Enjoy!

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Enemies-to-Lovers, Second-Chance, Best Friend’s Brother/Sister’s Best Friend
Standalone: Yes-ish
Part of a Series: Yes Book 1 of Manhattan Nights Series
POV: Elsie and Brett
Steam Level: Quite warm at time
4/5

Let me preface this with I read an advanced copy of this book. Overall I really liked The Vow. The story was intriguing and the characters quite fun. However, this book felt a bit disjointed at times, as if I was missing a bit here and there. I like that Natalie Wrye treats her readers as if they have a brain and can put the details together on their own. However, bigger details seems to be missing, like when Brett tells Elsie about the details of the contract. It’s inferred that Elsie knows but the how/when she was told is never mentioned which makes it feel as if something is missing. I’m hoping that the final/published version has these missing pieces ironed out. Natalie Wrye is a great author who I’ve read before and cannot wait to read again. The Vow just fell a little flat for me. Although I love the characters and will definitely continue the series.

I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quotes:

  • The city of Manhattan is far too cramped when you’re anywhere in the vicinity of a demigod.
  • I’m drawn to him, like a moth to a flame, daring the fire.
  • In my eyes…you have no worst.
  • Honey, that man has the kind of scruff you can comfortably sit on.
  • Plotting every point of your life is bullshit.
  • I’m sweating like a paid prostitute in church.
  • My body was never my own to begin with. The second I let Brett Jackson into my bed, it belonged to him and him alone.
  • Don’t you know that I’m my best when I with you? The you were everything that was ever good in me?
