One seemingly innocuous promise.
The one girl he could never forget....
Collins Drake exercises control over all facets of his life. From his business, to satisfying his physical needs … it all happens on his command.
So when a woman shows up at his door and reminds him of a promise they made each other when they were just ten years old, it shouldn’t have the ability to rock his entire world.
Yet it does.
Because Mia Monroe wasn't just his childhood best friend, she wasn't just the girl he lost his virginity to and hasn't seen since, she's the one exception to his perfect control. And piece by piece, she's about to tear apart his carefully laid plans.
This was my second favorite book in the series. I liked the back story between Mia and Collins especially when combined with the fact that Collins has had a live-in girlfriend for the last three years. They were everything to one another once upon a time...their first everything and then Mia moved away.
She comes to Collins expecting the same guy she knew growing up. He's not that guy anymore, although there are glimpses of that Collins that shows up every once in a while. I liked watching the evolution of Collins finding himself again.
This has been an interesting series and I liked how this book tied up the story for all three of the couples at the end. It was a great ending to the series and when I finished the book I was smiling at how the author tied it all up. I've loved getting to know these brothers and the girls that capture their hearts.
Note: I feel like the narrator really grew in her art as the series progressed. There was a marked improvement with her narration from book 1 to book #4. I enjoyed her interpretation of the stories.
