Seven years ago, I gave my vow to a man.
Except it wasn't at 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.

“Some Vows are made to be kept and some made to be broken, 5 stars”
Brett was the town golden boy turned bad boy with a secret. When he left home, he had no choice in the matter no matter what people think. When he left he left the three women in his life, his mother, his sister, and his sisters best friend Elise. But Elise was much more to him then anyone knew. Now years later she’s in his town and needs his help. Will he let he past hold him back from the one woman who ever had a hold on him or will he go after what he wants?
Elise was in love with Brett once upon a time. But its something she has moved on from. Elise never imagined needing his help when she gets to her new city that he so happens to reside in. She fights herself between the new and old Brett, has he really changed or is he the same? One thing is for sure though, he knows how to rattle her cage. Will she give him a chance?
I loved how different these two were. She was the all-American kind of woman and he was the tattooed bad boy, but together they were fire. The chemistry was off the charts and completely undeniable. The secondary characters played them up in the best sort of way yet got me excited for their stories to come.
Breathless, my body shaking, I pull back just as our kiss begins to deepen, my lips tender to the touch as I lick them. I look up at the brown-haired Adonis holding me close, inhaling as deep as I can. I let go of a shaky breath.
Brett blinks. “What you won’t. What I shouldn’t.” He kisses me chastely, pulling back. “What we need.” He grins. “I couldn’t hold back any longer.”
He snorts on a soft laugh, his stare scanning over my lips. “If anyone’s a dog here, it’s me. But I can’t deny you, Elsie.” He gaze goes back up to mine. “I can’t deny this. I know we made a promise. To never cross this line again. But there’s a reason we’re both here in New York. There’s a reason for right now. To be honest… I don’t know what the hell it really is.” His aqua eyes glow. “But I know I want to explore it.” His voice lowers. “Explore you… If you let me, Elsie. All of this—everything—is up to you.”
But I can’t think, let alone move or talk while our bodies are so close. He smells like the rain. Clean and crisp. A fresh, lightly smoky scent, the skin that is pressed against me as is almost as intoxicating as the stare—the one that intensely searches mine, excavating answers, digging deep enough to find only fucking desire, I’m sure. I’m so turned on I can’t speak. My voice is little more than a sigh. I bite my bottom lip, trying to control my tongue.
“We can’t throw caution to the wind, Brett. We have Kayla to think about. And even if we didn’t, we have history, too much past. We’ve practically watched each other grow up. Stayed in the same houses.” I scoff out loud, a blush hitting my cheeks that I can feel burn. “For God’s sake, you’ve seen everything. You’ve seen me at my worst.”
He chuckles, a seductive low sound. “My sexy sweet Elsie. You don’t get it, do you? In my eyes… you have no worst.”
