Review: Promised Love by Vikki Jay

Getting stuck sharing a honeymoon suite with a hot, older, NAVY Seal sounds like it should be a good time. Except he’s my estranged husband and we haven’t spoken in years.

Until today, we were living separate lives, waiting to finalize our divorce. But my family’s meddling has pushed us together. And now he’s here filling out his t-shirt just a little too well and staring at me just a little too intensely.

Don’t even get me started on his dimple that pops up every time he smiles. The man has temptation written all over him.
We manage to stay out of each other’s way—mostly. Until the tension boils over one night in his car.
I straddle his lap. I press my lips to his. I feel his body against mine. And that one hot moment has me offering something I never thought I would.

What happens in the honeymoon suite, stays in the honeymoon suite.

But what Lukas and I share in that room is so much more than just physical. With every kiss, every caress, every touch, I start forgetting our reality, and wonder if we’ve got it all wrong.
We planned our divorce four years ago. But what if our plans have changed?

Autumn and Lukas were supposed to be married per a superstitious agreement between their two families. The former Navy SEAL is twelve years older and has no interest in being married to some teenager, but agrees because they’ll live separate lives. Autumn is livid about the arrangement and immediately finds contact information for Lukas so she can get to know her future husband. She’s spitting mad at first but once she’s become resigned to their situation, the two form an unlikely friendship and remain pen pals throughout his tours in the desert.

He’s since ended his military career and embarked on a new one in San Diego. She’s been throwing herself into the inn completely, determined to do a great job. They managed to ignore their marriage for four whole years, but when Lukas is injured at work, Autumn runs to him. Her meddling family sets them up to share a suite because the inn is booked solid. There’s an undeniable attraction simmering between these two but as they get to know one another better, it becomes impossible to resist. Watching their friendship develop was cute and they clearly care about one another. I liked these characters right away but couldn’t really connect with them as much as I wanted to, for some reason. I’m not even sure why but I still enjoyed their story. I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
