Synopsis

Kira Dallaire is desperate.

Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.

Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.

Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.

What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they’ll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.

As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

My Review

Grayson’s Vow is my new favorite Mia Sheridan book. With a narrative that’s enrapturing, consuming and beautifully heartbreaking, I read it straight through, in single, late-night sitting.

It was unputdownable.

Written in Mia’s signature, emotionally effusive style, Grayson and Kira’s story felt raw and deeply moving. Both Grayson and Kira are individuals with pasts that have scarred them… defined them. Where there should have been love, there was hate. Where there should have been nurturing, there was abandonment. Kira grew up under the unrelenting and often brutal pressure of her father, while Grayson lived a life where he felt unwanted and resented. But whereas Kira remained bright, hopeful and fierce, Grayson turned cynical, numb and unforgiving.

Kira meets Grayson at a vulnerable moment, after being denied a much-needed bank loan. They both need money and Grayson is a felon without options. But then Kira comes up with an idea that changes everything. With cutting, angry words, Grayson accepts Kira’s outlandish proposal to save his father’s ailing vineyard.

Their relationship starts antagonistically as misconceptions and assumptions override kindness and rational thought. Kira feels as if she’s let herself and those she cares about down, while Grayson’s anger boils just beneath the surface every time he sees her.

“She would be a constant, shameful reminder of just how far I’d fallen.”

But despite angry words and hurtful actions, undeniable fire burns between them both. Before too long, emotions complicate everything and old wounds are ripped open, even as something more, something healing, pervades.

“True love is not only the flower, true love is also the thorns.”

Their pasts twine unexpectedly, unearthing lies and feelings of betrayal. The tension surges as these two broken souls stand to lose it all.

Beautifully written and evocative, Grayson and Kira’s story will own you from beginning to end. This is one of my favorite stories of the year, and one you shouldn’t miss.
