From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a sexy new contemporary stand-alone series.
Hazel Noble has survived horrors she wouldn’t inflict on her worst enemy. Since then, she’s healed, found herself, and connected with a group of women she’s proud to call her friends. However, when they make a pact to start looking for love, Hazel finds herself not only up first but also forced to face a past she thought she’d escaped.
Cross Brady has no need for a relationship. As the oldest of five, he’s always been the one his family can rely on. Now, all he wants is to work in peace and live his life. His priorities shift dramatically, though, when Cross finds himself in Hazel’s path.
Though the two initially fight their connection, they soon learn that it’s safer to fall for each other than keep running from what’s holding them back—not to mention, who wants them dead.

Forever only once
Carrie Ann Ryan is the Queen of spinoffs that keep on giving. It started with Montgomery Ink, Then we moved on to the Montgomery cousins of Colorado Springs, Then it was the Montgomery cousins of Boulder. From that we get the Promise Me series, all about Arden's brothers (Wrapped In Ink). I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this series from the moment they were introduced helping Arden at the hospital in her and Liam's book, before CAR had even announced them as an actual possibility. Let me say this one thing. CAR did not disappoint (not that she ever does). It was worth every single second of waiting. I loved how the girls decided to set each other up and get the blind dates started, I loved how Hazel & Cross actually meet without meaning to. Such a big start to this branch of the series I know that they will only get better and better.
The start of a really great series!
This book is the start of a really great series! I love Hazel and Cross. Cross is growls, bearded and so, so swoony. Hazel is a strong and independent woman with a tragic background. The Montgomery’s are very loosely in the background. There is some suspense in this book. It had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I absolutely love this book and was riveted to every page.
Exciting new series!
A new series with some favorite brothers. Arden’s older brothers will be the stars here and I’m loving it. We start with Cross, the oldest, and his accidental chance “date” with Hazel, the first of her group of friends to go on a blind date set up by her friends. Both of their peoples cancelled and they ended up making the most of it. While both are going through some tough times, there is a connection that they try to build on. Hazel has a brutal past that she’s trying to move forward from and trusting is hard for her. But she lets her guard down little by little with Cross. He’s going through some issues with his business and his partner, but he just can’t get Hazel off his mind. When the world comes crashing down on both of them, will they be able to make it through together? I loved their story, Hazel’s strength, and the way Cross cared so much for her. I can’t wait to read more in this series!!
