My Review of Grayson’s Vow by Mia Sheridan
Let's Talk About the Girl...
Kira, who is currently homeless and out of options. Refusing to accept help from her father, she’s determined to find a way to make it on her own. 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.
Let's Talk About the Guy...
Grayson’s past was really heart-breaking. Everything he’d suffered through though had shaped him into a bitter, arrogant man who trusted no one. He’d been wounded so many times that his hurt and the walls he’d built around himself had almost become a part of who he was.
Betrayal has been too hard to overcome. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail.
Let's Talk about the Story...
This is when her path crosses with Grayson Hawthorn’s, a gorgeous, suit-wearing ex-con whose name she remembered because it was her father who had influenced the severity of his sentence. With a record like his, he was unable to get the loans necessary to help keep his family’s vineyard running. In this, she saw an opportunity, marry him. He gets part of her inheritance and she gets to stick to her father. Win win.
She saw him as a means to an end and was determined not to let her heart be involved. But he saw her as a spoiled rich princess who’d fallen far from her throne. Given the almost antagonistic sparks that flew between them from the start, theirs was planned as a marriage of convenience, and nothing more.
Along the way, these two have tons of misunderstanding and arguments. Each one is holding on to pretty awful misconceptions about the other. Gray is a broken hero and can see past his past to the beauty that could be with Kira.
I love broken heroes that battle back from disaster to find love. At times Gray is so ungrateful and awful that it’s hard to read. At times there isn’t a shred of affection for all that Kira is doing for him, his home and his future.
He does eventually see what he has done, but not before he runs Kira off.
“I had a wife to find and some groveling to do. I was going to grovel so hard they might need to find a new word for it.”
Grayson’s Vow is my first taste of Mia Sheridan’s writing, and I have to ask myself, WHY!?!?!?! Mia Sheridan is without a doubt one of the most talented authors I have read. I felt so many feels and emotions while reading this book and I actually cried a few times. I haven’t cried in a book since Ugly Love. When New Adult first became a “thing” it was basically erotica with college aged characters, but the New Adult genre has definitely come a long way, and with authors like Mia Sheridan, it makes it the genre I actually turn to the most. After reading this, I went and ordered all of Mia Sheridan’s books so I could marathon them :)
Kira is a young women facing some hard times. She is currently homeless living out of her car with 2 thousand dollars to her name. Her father is the ex-mayor of San Francisco and turning to him for money is definitely out of the question.
Grayson is trying to keep his vow to his father and get the family vineyard up and running. Unfortunately, Grayson had gotten in a little trouble a few years back and it has caught up with him, when trying to get a loan.
“I’m sorry I can’t approve a loan for you, Mr. Hawthorn” The male voice that spoke sounded regretful. “if you were worth more….”
So Kira has an inheritance she can collect when either she is A. Married or B. 30. In her current predicament she cannot wait until she is 30 so….
“Right. Of course. I’m sorry to hesitate. Well, I guess I’ll just get right to it. I have a business arrangement to offer you.”
I lifted one brow. “A business arrangement?”
“Yes, well, in actuality, Mr Hawthorn, I’m here to propose marriage”
Ultimately, Kira offered to split her inheritance with Grayson. He would have the money he needed to work on the vineyard, and she would have her money to get on her feet.
Grayson looked at Kira as a spoiled brat, Kira saw Grayson as nothing more than a solution to her problem. And from the beginning Grayson was an ass, so, Kira knew she wasn’t risking her heart, this would be just a marriage out of convenience. Simple enough right?
While this novel does have emotion and depth, it isn’t overwhelming. I would classify this one as a nice lighthearted read. The banter between the characters was fun, the emotions and feels were all there, and all the important characters, definitely made their impact. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys a great romance.
I would like to add, while this situation in the story (marrying for convenience) isn’t new, Sheridan definitely has a way of making this story her own and very unique.
