The Promise of Rayne by Nicole Deese
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I always enjoy Ms. Deese's contemporary romances. They're always filled with complex characters, intriguing plots and swoony romance. I'm also a fan of the whole "forbidden love" troupe and thought it was handled really well here. There is quite the mystery surrounding these two families that have sworn to never have anything to do with each other. When desperate times call for desperate measures, Rayne finds herself turning to her enemy, Levi Harding for help. The one-time deal turns into something more and the two can't seem to stay away from each other. I liked Rayne and Levi, both are interesting characters and both are extremely loyal to their families.
I thought this was well written, kept me wanting to figure out what their feud was all about. I wish Rayne could have stood up for herself more, but I thought she was believable. Overall, this was an enjoyable read with a fun setting. I have a feeling we'll be returning to this small town in Idaho, at least I hope we get Gia's story.
If you enjoyed this one and are looking for something similar, give House Divided a try.
Religious: Mild, non-preachy
