Some lines should never be crossed . . . not even for love.

Sloan O'Malley just left her entire world behind—her family, her wealth, and even her real name. For the first time in her life, she's free. She can live the "normal" life she's always wanted. A life without fear. But there's nothing safe about her intensely sexy next-door neighbor.

Jude MacNamara has no room for innocence in his life. Only revenge. Still, he's never been able to walk away from the forbidden, and Sloan—who is every inch of pure, mouthwatering temptation—has forbidden written all over her. Only after it's way too late does he discover the real danger: claiming Sloan as his puts a target on her back. To protect her, Jude is willing risk everything . . . and to hell with the consequences.



If you've read the previous books in The O'Malley's series then you know that Sloan is the quiet one of the group that doesn't like to go against orders too often. After she's had enough of her family's constant battles, though, she leaves and sets out on her own, determined to not need anyone's help. But then she meets her neighbor, Jude, and their attraction leads to a danger far greater than she's ever imagined.

Forbidden Promises had a different feel from the other books and it wasn't as involved in the Mafia world, but it really worked for these characters. Sloan was trying to stay out of her family drama when we were first introduced to her so I was really happy that her character stayed true to that now that we got the chance to read her story. There is definitely still Mafia dealings, which I loved the suspense of, they just weren't overly abundant in the story.

Honestly I think this story is going to be one of my favorites from the series. Sloan and Jude had an amazing chemistry that was undeniable from the beginning of their journey. There was a good amount of drama involved in their relationship too and it sucked me right into this book.

Overall, this is a must read. It could potentially be read as a standalone if you didn't mind not fully understanding what's going on with side characters, but I would recommend reading the previous books first.
