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.
4.5 Meet Me in the Middle Stars
I love all of Mia Sheridan books. I love how they make me feel, I love how the stories are conveyed and I love each one is completely different, but no less epic.
I would say Mia Sheridan books can be a bit intimidating. You never know what you are going to get and you know it will be a long, but very thoughtful. I will admit, I put on my big girl pants and prepare for battle before I start my Mia Sheridan read. She usually guts me and I end up weeping like a baby, but it’s ALWAYS worth it.
To my surprise, Grayson’s Vow is not dramatic. It’s kind of light-hearted, very adorable and cute. It’s very different from what she usually writes and I 100% LOVED it and the direction she took the story.
Kira is in a tough situation. She’s back in the states and is broke. She has a rich Daddy, but she rather be homeless than ask her father for a penny. Grayson is an ex-con and the boss of a failing winery. He needs money fast to save his business.
Kira is able to tap into her trust when she turns thirty, which is in eight years or marry. So, Kira proposes to a stranger. She asks Grayson to be her husband for a few months and both will leave richer.
I adore this story-line. Not only do I find the premise very cute, but it made me want to drink a glass of wine while I read (and I did, don’t judge).
I loved Kira. I found her strong willed and independent. I loved how she was willing to do anything before she went back to her father. I loved that no matter what Grayson threw at her, she took it in strides. The man made her sleep in a guest house with no hot water, it was funny and sweet. Grayson is your tough Hero beaten around the edges. He’s been in prison and has a huge chip on his shoulder. I liked Grayson, but he sure made it hard on me.
The thing I love about Mia book is that she knows how to build up her characters. You get the FULL back story to Grayson and Kira. You feel for them, you feel the pain and it makes you fall even more in love with them. Her stories are very descriptive and it’s a mammoth of a read, but it never felt long. I felt like I was just going along the beautiful ride.
If you are a Mia Sheridan fan, you will NOT be disappointed at all. You will be completely satisfied, happy and pleased you got your Mia Sheridan fix. If you haven’t tried a Mia Sheridan book, this is a great one to start with.
