Kira Dallaire is desperate.

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.

Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.

Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.

What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.

As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

There is a reason why Mia Sheridan is one of my favorite authors… she always has this way of drawing me so deep into a story to the point where I don’t want to come up until I get to the very end. Each book of hers contains this unique trait  that is uplifting and “Grayson’s Vow” isn’t any different.

“Grayson’s Vow” is about two individuals that bind themselves together out of severe desperation. In the process, not only do they discover themselves  but they also learn that  when you let someone else in that there is so much more that they can accomplish together. This was a difficult lesson to learn especially on Grayson’s part. Due to a tough upbringing he believed that it was best to distance himself from those that cared. He built  walls so high around him that I never thought no one would be able to break them down.

Needless to say, I definitely had my doubts on how the pairing would play out since it seemed as if Grayson and Kira had not a single thing in common but as the story unfolds I came to appreciate how the author was able to prove me wrong. In all sense, this couple fit perfectly together – like pieces to a puzzle. The way Kira  peeled back Grayson’s layers and witnessing her fully  embed herself into his life was certainly  a thing of beauty.

“There is always pain in this life. Not just for me, not just for you – for everyone. You can’t avoid it. And sometimes the pain is so great, it feels as if it carves out the very essence of who you are. But it doesn’t, not if you don’t allow it to. It caves out a place in you, yes, but love is meant to fill that space. If you let it, pain makes more space for love within you. And the love we carry inside makes us strong when nothing else can.”

What I found most alluring about this book was the character development. Kira especially had this strong effect on me. She herself had a rough upbringing but instead of becoming hard she developed into the total opposite. I loved her fierceness and her wit. She  also possessed this remarkable selflessness. There was this softness about her yet at the same time when she or someone she cared for was pushed she fought for them unceasingly.

Kira wasn’t the only one that was great. I adored Charlotte and Walter. The overwhelming love they had for someone who wasn’t even related to them was endearing. I appreciated every single one of the characters no matter how minuscule of a role they played they complimented the main couple tremendously.

I would have to say that the only drawback I noticed was the lack of romance. It was a tad on the lighter side than I would have preferred but in  a way this may have been a good thing since it not only  accentuated the life lessons that could be learned but it  further highlighted the exceptional love story itself.

The Verdict:
