Tessa Bradley is a self-sufficient, take-no-bull, single mother—well, now she is. Finally rid of her abusive, alcoholic ex, she’s making a new life for herself and catching up with old friends; the ones she was forced to break ties with because of her controlling husband. When she runs into Marcus, her friend Riley’s once-adorable turned smoking-hot little brother, she has no idea how he’s about to rock her world.
You wanted me then, now you can have me. Just promise you’ll Keep Me…
I have to start by saying "Damn you Faith Andrews!!" How dare you introduce me to a new book boyfriend?!?!? I have SOOO many already!! I just can't get Marcus Grayson out of my head! Talk about a hunk of tattooed yumminess wrapped up into an all around sweet guy that I would love to put my hands all over!
Marcus and Tessa have known each other almost their entire lives. The problem? Tessa is best friends with Marcus' sister. Uh-oh. Tessa has gotten out of an abusive relationship and she doesn't feel that she is ready to move on, seeing as how she is now a mother to her little-man Luca. Marcus has always had a thing for Tessa and he now wants his dreams realized. Can Tessa get over what she went through with her ex and at the same time, can Marcus put aside his womanizing ways to focus on one woman?
All I can say is that I just LOVED the chemistry between these two! I was pulling for them from chapter one! I just loved the bantering between them and their deep seated love for each other was completely evident. Marcus never knew what true love was until he met Tessa. "Tears spilled down my face as I thought about my mistaken impression of love and what a vulnerable person would endure for someone who owned her heart."
Thank you Faith Andrews for an amazing read and a new man in my life! I would love to have more Marcus Grayson! I leave you all with a quote from my new main man.... - Kelly
"I don't want anyone else. I want you and you alone. I need you, Tessa. You make me whole, you make me feel, you make me want to be the type of man my mother would be proud of."
