He always keeps his promises.
Angelina has sacrificed everything
to be with the man she loves. Forced to abandon her family, and even her own
identity, Angelina depends on Haithem as never before. With no more secrets
between them, Haithem has become the source of all her needs. Sexually.
But not even Haithem can hide
While they’re sneaking across
borders, avoiding persecution from everyone who would see Haithem dead and his
prototype stolen, the media fascination surrounding Angelina’s disappearance
continues to mount.
For Angelina, it’s a brutal reminder
of what she’s left behind and the pain she’s caused to those who believe her
dead or held against her will.
To Haithem, it’s a warning: he
stands to lose the one person left in his life he loves beyond measure. The
hunt won’t be called off until his enemies have destroyed him, his life’s work
and everyone involved—including Angelina.
He has only one choice. He’s
promised to protect her. And Haithem always keeps his promises.
Didn’t You Promise? is the second book in the Bad for You series by Amber Bardan. In the first book Didn’t I Warn You? we met Angelina who is young and innocent and living vicariously through her friends encounters with men so when she sees a talk, dark, handsome and mysterious foreigner in the local coffee shop she’s immediately intrigued with him. The two are from completely different worlds where Angelina is still the good girl living at home with her parents and Haithem leads a life of danger always looking over his shoulder.
Now that Haithem has shared his secrets with Angelina she has sacrificed everything for him leaving behind her family and even her identity after falling in love with him. The pair are still in extreme danger from those after Haithem and continue to stay on the run and in hiding before they are caught.
When reading the first book in this series I was completely surprised by just how intense the story was and how quickly I became hooked on the story. Now even knowing what the secrets were that Haithem had been hiding through the first book the intensity hasn’t died down as the story continues, if anything really it became even more action packed and explosive in this second book.
Along with the intensity in this story there are also a lot of very sexy moments between Haithem and Angelina and if anything now into the second book those have become even steamier than in the first book. The relationship seems to have gone to a whole new level now that the secrets are out which had the steam coming from the pages while reading.
Overall, a sexy series with an intense, action packed plot. Recommend this one to the romantic suspense fans.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
