This is the next book in the Defiant Motorcycle Club by Cora Brent. It is a story that will move you, horrify you and at the same time have you say there are still good people in this world that care for others. While this is a story about an abusive religious cult and a MC, it is more about a remarkable love story that shows all things are possible when love is involved.
Our story begins with Promise Talbot a member of sadistic cult that claims to be religious! The women are given to the men in forced polygamous marriages that they have no say in. They are treated like owned like livestock and used to breed. She has been promised to an older man that already has wives. The only reason she has not escaped is the need to protect her younger sister from being given in marriage to one of these men. Promise did not know what to expect, but it wasn’t the rape and beating that almost killed her on her wedding night. She had to escape from this evil man before it was too late. When the opportunity came, Promise begged for help from a man that was part of a MC. He had the kindest eyes and she knew that he would keep her safe.
Grayson Mercado at one time had a future. He had everything planned, college and a life doing what he loved. Grayson was pulled into a situation that put an end to that future and he found himself serving time in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. While serving time Grayson meet Cas a member of the Defiant MC and they became friends. He became a member of the Defiant Motorcycle Club after he was released and found his place there. When Gray saw the beautiful woman in the restaurant and she begged him to help her, he knew he would do anything to help her. Will Gray and Promise find healing within each other’s arms? Can Gray protect Promise from her past? Read this book and you will not be disappoint with the story that unfolds on each page.

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This book hits some many hot spots for a reader including a really hot alpha male and lots of sizzling sex. It involves an MC that helps an abused woman find sanctuary and freedom from her abusers. The love that grows between the two main characters is both beautiful and healing.
Would I recommend this author: Yes! Ms. Brent has created a series that touches the heart and soul of her readers. This is an amazing author that has created not only characters that live on the pages but a plot that moves you!
Yes, I do love to read harder, grittier books, especially when there is a biker involved but sometimes it is a welcome respite to indulge in a sweeter love story but still containing a hard edge. I had just recenty read a biker book dealing with a polygamist cult (It Ain't Me Babe) and while this at first seemed to be very similar and reminiscent of that book, Promise Me was much less vile and the club involved was a smaller more laid back group of bikers who ran a bar and just lived more or less like normal citizens. The main similarity being that one of the abused young women forced to marry a cult leader manages to escape the clutches of the evil man and is rescued by a biker and taken into their protective custody. In this book Promise is barely alive after a severe rape and beating by her husband and runs into Grayson, a biker in a fast food restaurant. Luck would have it that her cousin Rachel is involved with his club, so of course he takes her away on the back of his bike. Gray is a good man (even though he claims not to be) and pretty soon it is obvious to everyone around them that they are meant to be together.
Promise begins a new life in freedom, but living in fear that her husband and the crazy cult she escaped, will come looking for her...not to mention the fact that she left her little sister behind and she is also at risk for forced marriage and abuse. As bad as this book sounds, the treatment of woman is not as bad as what I have read in many other MC books. Apart from the rape and beatings Promise endures at the hands of her husband, there is not any of that in the biker group. This book portrays life and love in a smaller club with not that much description of club whores and criminal activity, but more family type stories and monogamous relationships. I really enjoyed this enough to buy the next book which is Maddox's story (one of the gruffer members of the group).
A cool addition...most books have a music playlist at the end of the book...this one has dessert recipes that were made by the women during the course of the story...and they look good enough I might make them =)
