Forbidden Promises (The O'Malleys, #4)Forbidden Promises by Katee Robert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 There's A New Player In Town Stars!!!

This is Book Four in this addictive series and we're finally getting Slone's story....and what a story it is! Slone has always known what's expected of her and she's somewhat sat in the background and been the quiet one of the family. When the Russians enter their Mafia fed world and before Slone is forced to fulfill her familial obligation, she's given the opportunity to "escape" the family obligation thanks to her brother and her world opens wide!

Slone is living in this small Oregon town, working at a diner. Which given her upbringing I found a little humorous since she's never worked a day in her life. But one of the things I loved most about this book is seeing her become her own woman and understanding that finding satisfaction from doing a good job really does brighten your day. She's also taken up yoga and apparently taking on her neighbor Jude!

Let's talk about Jude for a minute...he's hot, he's sexy and he's mysterious! Is there a better combo out there? I think not!! Jude is in this same small town to seek revenge and finding an innocent like Slone was not on his agenda. However, he just can't seem to help himself by being drawn to her and what she has to offer and she's got a LOT to offer, so these two take some steps that change both their lives!

This story moves at a pace that is perfect for this storyline and series. For me, it's a book that drew me in, grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't' let go. There's action, love, sex, angst and drama. We get to see other members of the O'Malley family which made me smile and we to see what happens when what a man is looking for changes when he meets a woman that makes him re-think everything he thought he knew and wanted prior to her bursting into his life.

While technically this could be a standalone, IMO it can't be read without reading the previous three books as you'd miss out on a lot of the machinations of the families that got them to the point they're at now.
