Title: GRAY’S PROMISE (KING SECURITY BOOK 2)
Author: Anni Fife
Genre: Steamy Romantic Suspense
A jealousy that destroys everything in its path…a love that refuses to die.
Zoey Morgan seems to have it all as a successful surgeon in Boston. However, perfection lies only on the surface. Plagued by nightmares and amnesia from a tragedy that ripped her family from her fourteen years ago, she finds the courage to reach out to the only man who can make her feel safe. She’s buried the memory of their love, but her heart—and her body—responds to the ex-marine in ways that are all too familiar.
Grayson “Gray” Walker’s heart shattered when Zoey chose another man over him. Since then, he’s built an impenetrable wall around his emotions. But from the moment she implodes back into his life, her vulnerability breaches his defenses. His skills as an elite member of the King Security team cannot shield him from the devastation of learning he might have left Zoey high and dry when she needed him most. Now, Gray must navigate the tripwire of helping her heal while protecting himself from being hurt again.
As the embers of their potent love reignite, an old threat awakens, leading to greater danger than ever before.
On her eighteenth birthday, Zoey’s world was ripped to shreds. Her family murdered and she herself brutally raped, she nearly went insane. The only person she could trust was Gray, the neighbor young man who she loved. But when she needed him most, he walked away, leaving her alone. 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 memories, so she can move on with her life. Her shrink suggests she find a safe haven, someone she trusts to unleash the monsters buried deep within her. Gray…
Gray’s tries hard to forget Zoey, his red butterfly, but she’s his kryptonite, the one who gets under his skin and crushes his heart again and again. Not even the military could beat her memory out of him. When she appears out of nowhere at his office, King Security, the walls around his heart crumbles. She needs his help and he’s going to do whatever’s necessary to free his fragile, red butterfly, even if it means returning to his hometown and facing his family.
What neither of them realizes is the one responsible for the murders and even Zoey’s rape is one close to them. Their lives are in danger and while Gray is too close to the situation, Gray brings in his King Security family to protect Zoey at all costs. But will he be able to save Zoey as well as himself or has the murderer entrapped them?
Have you ever read a book that grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let go? The story invades your every thought and you wonder what will happen next? Gray’s Promise hooked me from the first page and got inside my head. Gray and Zoey became a part of me and I found myself thinking about their plight and relationship while I worked, did chores and even slept.
In a nutshell, the best book I’ve ever read. Hands down.
Anni Fife weaves an intoxicating romantic suspense with visual narration and every scene filled with emotion. The reader plunges into the emotional tornadic war between Zoey and Gray, making it impossible to choose a side. Both characters are damaged beyond repair yet there’s a spark of hope. If they’d be honest with each other, they’d see the truth: they belong together.
This is a steamy romance with plenty of HOT sex scenes. As a woman, I found an almost poetic feel to each sex scene. Sure, it got my pulse racing and beads of sweat clung to my skin, but it was beautifully written. It wasn’t about the sex but rather about the connection building between Zoey and Gray.
I highly recommend this book to romantic suspense, steamy romance, thriller and suspense readers. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
Favorite Character/Quote: "Today's the day you take his hand and show him the way. The way to your heart."
