Book review of Grayson's Vow by Mia Sheridan

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.

“He looked like every hero in every fairy tale I’d ever dreamed come to life. And, God, I wanted to believe in heroes again. But sometimes, I supposed, a girl just had to be her own hero.”

Mia Sheridan

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.

Kira and Grayson had a rough start together. First of all they’re involved in a marriage out of convenience. Kira’s father suffocates her with all his pressure and power, whilst Grayson needs a loan in order to salvage his decaying family vineyard.

However, this romance could be even defined as enemies to lovers. They’re both swallowed in multiple misconceptions about each other. Grayson comes off as an arrogant and indifferent asshole, being an ex con did not help his case either. On the other hand, Kira is seen as a spoiled princess who daddy cut off her allowance.

Although prejudice takes great importance at the beginning of their relationship, they soon grow closer. Their walls come down and they give each other the chance to dig into their hearts.

This novel is a little lighter than the deep romances Mia Sheridan usually writes. I’m not saying this book isn’t emotional, that’s kind of the author’s trademark. But in this one, there are scenes you’ll find terribly funny.

Definitely one of my favorite books by this author.
