for Colters' Promise
Date of Review: 06/11/12
Wow! I don’t think I have ever read a book quite like this one. This book is an homage to characters who had their stories told in other books. It gives us a glimpse into where they are now and what has happened since they found their happily ever afters. This is the book that we always wish for when we finish a really great romance. We want to know what is happening to our favorite characters and how their lives are going. Maya Banks gives this to all the fans of the Colters in her newest book.
The book tells us about Lily Colter and how her life is going now that she has all three of her husbands, Seth, Dillon and Michael. Lily finds out some pretty big news and has to decide how to share her secret with the rest of the family. Her love for her husbands and theirs for her has not diminished in the least since they had their story told.
We also get to check in with Callie and Max Wilder. She loves the life she lives with her dominant husband. She just wishes he would talk to her more. When tragedy strikes his sister, Callie finds a way to help her husband open up.
And the original foursome of Holly, Adam, Ryan and Ethan also make their appearance so we can touch base with them. They are doing well and loving life. Spending time with their children and their spouses makes them happy.
This was just a nice story to fill us in on what was going on in the lives of these characters after their stories had been told. The book sets up a story for Max’s sister, Lauren, in the future. It will be interesting to see what kind of man she finds herself with given all that has happened to her and who her brother is.
There are so steamy scenes like when Lily is in bed with her husbands, but the sex takes second seat to the love that exists within the relationships.
I especially loved that the story ends with Christmas. A family gathering seems so appropriate for this family who loves each other so much. They care for each other and want to spend time together. I felt as though I was drawn into the family as I read this book.
