In and out of the bedroom, Alex and Angel's passion is an all-consuming, every-second-of-every-day, can't-stop-thinking-about-you, obsession!

They have it all; fiery hot sexual chemistry, an undeniable mental connection, a profound emotional bond, and a newfound trust as they promise each other, 'no more secrets'. Theirs is a sensual, magical love affair of epic proportions.

When their perfect world is shaken by a dangerous criminal out to extract painful revenge on them, the fierce protectiveness that rules Alex becomes a single purposed objective that will drive him beyond his limits and make him do things even he didn't know he was capable of.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Kahlen Aymes did it again! She delivered yet another 5 star finale. After reading the second book in the series I didn’t think that it could get any better but boy I was certainly wrong. Promises After Dark was definitely so much more than I could hope for.

In this book, the couple remain very much in love. Time and again they both prove to each other that they are in it for the  long haul. Except for the fact that Angel is hesitant to make that final leap in moving in together everything else about them is flawless. That is up until both their lives are threatened by the psychopath Swanson that we met in Confessions In The Dark.

By all means necessary, Alex tries to protect Angel as best he could but with Angel being so strong-willed and independent keeping her safe becomes a challenge. I have to say that is one of the best things I love about this book… Angel is just amazing. She’s the epitome of the perfect heroine. Sexy, intelligent, out-spoken, loving and nurturing. Something horrific occurred in her past but instead of it making her weak she flourished into this courageous and selfless woman.

” I don’t want us to end. I want you in my bed, my body inside yours, t o give you so much pleasure you can’t form a coherent thought. But more, I just want you with me. Next to me. I want to take care of you, to protect you. Always.”

With a protagonist like  Swanson, I would have to say that I was consistently at the edge of my seat. The thrills – both the romance and suspense were terrific individually  yet when combined together it was utterly magnificent. Promises After Dark had the excellent  flow and balance that  just left me spellbound.

Back then I thought Ms Aymes wouldn’t be able to top her Remembrance Trilogy but she sure did with this one. I personally loved everything about this entire series and highly recommend grabbing a copy.

The Verdict:

Alex closed his eyes, his heart swelling inside his chest and more blood pushing into his cock.  His breath hitched.  Fuck, she excited him more than anyone ever had, but that wasn’t even it.  He wanted to make sure she understood.  He ran the tip of his nose down hers, and his lower lip nudged hers.  “I intend to, but I mean, I don’t want us to end.  I want you in my bed, my body inside yours, to give you so much pleasure you can’t form a coherent thought.  But more, I just want you with me.  Next to me.  I want to take care of you, to protect you.  Always.”  His eyes opened and locked with hers as he stilled.  “I need you to believe you are the only thing that matters to me now.  The only fucking thing.”
