Review- Forbidden Promises by Katee Robert

Summary-

All Sloan O’Malley ever wanted was a simple life—and now she’s finally got it. She’s left everything behind in Boston—her family, her money, even her name—and set herself up in a tiny seaside town in Oregon. What she doesn’t plan for? Her mysterious and painfully attractive neighbor, Jude.

Jude MacNamara has been many things in his life—pampered son of a prestigious family, only surviving heir to a lost legacy, hit man—but now he’s out for revenge on the man responsible for the death of his father and brothers—Colm Sheridan. He’s tracking Colm’s sister when he encounters Sloan living with her in her beach house. He’s a patient hunter and he’s willing to sit back and wait for his prey...he just doesn’t expect for this woman to give rise to emotions he hasn’t felt in years.

He doesn’t want to see Sloan hurt, but in order to protect her, he will have to turn his back on the one thing he’s spent his life pursuing—revenge. Even then, there’s no guarantee either one of them will make it out alive.

Review-

Forbidden Promises is the fourth book in the O'Malleys series. I have been following this series from the beginning and though its not like I love this series to bits and pieces, I do enjoy it from time to time. Some books have definitely been more likable for me than others. I think I'm gonna have to put Forbidden Promises in the less liked category. It was a slightly above average read for me.

This is Jude and Sloan's story. We'd met Sloan in the previous books and she has always been the timid and shy sister amongst the O'Malleys. At first, I thought I would like Sloan and I did but not as much as I thought I would. It was because as soon as she met Jude its like she had a total personality change. At the rate at which these changes happened were so damn quick that it was very unbelievable for me.

Then we have Jude. Jude is actually a hit man. His quest in life has been for revenge against the Sheridans because they practically destroyed his family. When Jude meets Sloan he knows she's hiding things. Soon he finds what her connection is to the Boston families but by then its too late. He's already fallen for her. I liked that Jude was protective of Sloan but other than that I didn't find anything super special about him.

Sloan and Jude made for an unlikely pair. They were complete opposites on paper and their personalities. I usually love that but I didn't see the connection between these two here. There is no friends to lovers or taking their time. Everything happens within a week and soon they are on the run from their enemies. I found this really hard to believe and that decreased my enjoyment of the book.

We also get glimpses of the remaining O'Malley siblings and I'm looking forward to Aiden's book next. Dmitri Romanov is an interesting character and there is definitely something brewing between Keira and him. I have a feeling they'll get a book sooner or later. Forbidden Promises has action and people trying to get their own way but somehow it didn't really click for me. This was an okay read.
