The writing and grammar were done very well in A Man's Promise. The problem for me was that there was too much going on. In the 400 pages there were so many characters to focus on. The synopsis leads you to believe that the story is about Caden Granger and Shiloh Timmons putting their bond back together. Shiloh wants nothing to do with Caden, but he is determined to get them back together.
Nonetheless, it focuses on all three brothers’ (Caden, Jace, and Dalton) and their relationships. It also flips focus to other supporting characters quite often. Overall, it was hard to focus on what was going on with Caden and Shiloh’s redeveloping relationship. I felt like with all the other relationships, plus the big mystery unfolding, that Caden and Shiloh were kind of pushed to the side. It went from years of hurt and betrayal to hopelessly in love again within just a few scenes. I could not connect with the characters due to limited time with each of them.
Despite the fast pace, the storyline itself was a good one. There were some really interesting elements to this book. I definitely found Dalton very comical at times. His storyline with Jules actually became very appealing as well. If you do not mind a story with several different points of view, you will enjoy this book a lot. It’s full of romance and mystery.
A man's word is his bond. His family is his strength. His heart is his own.
Superstar musician Caden Granger has spent years running from love, commitment and family. Yet despite his fame and fortune, he knows the kind of respect and adoration he needs can only come from one person—the very woman who wants nothing to do with him.
Charity volunteer and owner of a wine boutique, Shiloh Timmons finally got her life on track once her relationship with Caden ended, and she's in no hurry to revisit a romance with the man who believes she left him standing at the altar.
If Caden can't have Shiloh by his side, all the success in the world will mean nothing. Now he has a chance to renew his promises…but is it too late?
