Gray's Promise (King Security #2) by Anni Fife
Gray's Promise - Anni Fife

Gray's promise is book 2 in the A King Security Series. I read book one, Luke's Redemption, a while back and loved it. I was lucky enough to receive an email from Annie herself asking me if I wanted to read book 2. I of course jumped at the chance. I am so glad that I did. As good as Luke's Redemption was Gray's Promise tops it. To me this book, actually both book's are movie quality. You know when you read a book and think to yourself I would love to watch this play out on the big screen? Well that is what I kept thinking. This book had my heart breaking, my heart racing, and my heart jumping for joy, and sometimes doing all 3 at once. There is a perfect balance of romance, which by the way is a 2nd chance romance, mystery and murder. The book is gripping. It drags you in on page one and makes you want more on the last page. I was on the edge of my seat, turning pages as fast as I could.

 

In the book Zoey Morgan was 19 on the night her world turned upside down. She was brutally raped and her family was murdered, and the love of her life walked away. Now 14 years later Zoey has blocked that night away in her mind and cannot remember anything but a few snippets here and there. She is out to discover the truth of that night as well as why her love left.

 

Grayson "Gray" Walker's heart was broken on that night when he is told that Zoey, who he called his Butterfly, has accepted his brother Jacks proposal of marriage. He decides to walk away and join the Marines. He has tried to see Zoey a few times over the years until one night she told him to just go away. Heart broken and defeated Gray does as Zoey asks.

 

Now 14 years later Zoey walks into the King's Security Office asking Gray for his help to unlock the memories and find out what really happened that night so she can move on with her life.

 

If you like a good roller coaster ride, I think you should grab a copy of this book and buckle up. You won't be sorry.

REVIEW BY AMY - Gray's Promise (King Security #2) by Anni Fife
Gray's Promise - Anni Fife
Zoey Morgan seems to have it all as a successful surgeon in Boston. However, perfection lies only on the surface. Plagued by nightmares and amnesia from a tragedy that ripped her family from her fourteen years ago, she finds the courage to reach out to the only man who can make her feel safe. She’s buried the memory of their love, but her heart—and her body—responds to the ex-marine in ways that are all too familiar.

Grayson “Gray” Walker’s heart shattered when Zoey chose another man over him. Since then, he’s built an impenetrable wall around his emotions. But from the moment she implodes back into his life, her vulnerability breaches his defenses. His skills as an elite member of the King Security team cannot shield him from the devastation of learning he might have left Zoey high and dry when she needed him most. Now, Gray must navigate the tripwire of helping her heal while protecting himself from being hurt again.

As the embers of their potent love reignite, an old threat awakens, leading to greater danger than ever before.

The Greedy Queen
The Greedy Queen: Eating with Victoria - Annie Gray

I enjoyed reading this non-fiction book about the reign of Queen Victoria and her eating habits. However, I´m not sure how much new information about Queen Victoria the author really has provided, because everytime I told my mother an anecdote or fact from this book, she already knew everything about it by having watched the tv-series (which leads me to the conclusion that Annie Gray might have read Victoria´s diaries). 

 

In the end The Greedy Queen is an interesting look at Queen Victoria and the food and dining culture during the Victorian reign, but it is possible that this book might only be interesting for those, who don´t have a huge amount of prior knowledge about the Victorian age and life at court.

Mish mash of genres
A Most Extraordinary Pursuit - Juliana Gray

This book kind of defies convention, it's historical mystery, splash of romance, paranormal, and time travel. It is also, most definitely, a starter book; we get an introduction to characters and the arc here but you will be left with more questions than answers. 

This is labeled as #1 in the series, although there is .5, which I was wishing I had read because for the first 20% of this, I felt hopelessly lost. However, I'm not sure there are elements from the .5 book that would help clue you in for this one. If anyone who has read .5 could give an answer if reading the first would help here, would appreciate the comments. 

The paranormal factor (if curious what this is 

our heroine is haunted/accompanied by Queen Victoria mostly and occasionally her father and maybe her mother 

(spoiler show)

 really threw me for a loop, it is never fully explained and felt pretty awkward at times. 

I want to say this is more historical mystery and travel with occasional leanings toward attraction, connection, and romance but there is no ending HEA. The story is told in first person from our heroine and she is not a forthcoming narrator about her feelings or past. Our hero is the affable with a sense of hidden depths mystery man that we never fully get to know. 

The time travel element is hinted at in the prologue and then you kind of forget about it until towards the end where the beginning arc for it is started. 

Look, you will definitely end up with more questions than answers and a sort of HFN(I'm not ever sure I can call it that) as this is more starter book, you'll have to read the next in the series to get answers (hopefully! I haven't read the next yet). 

The writing is pretty engaging but I didn't feel the closest to the characters as I said, first person and not forthcoming. I am going to read the next in the series though because the historical mystery (myths and time travel!) has captured my attention.

The American laughed again. “Listen to you. Jesus. It’s like watching f——ing Downton Abbey.”

 

Wait, WHA....?!?
