Hayden Patterson has a simple rule. And heâs never broken it. Sleeping with a woman more than once simply isnât going to happen. Heâs always managed to hang onto his resolve, and so far, no womanâs ever blasted her way through. Itâs one and done, with no prospect of ever having anything permanent. His childhood gave him that thinking and he has no plans to ever change. Two women alone, and one of them is in more danger than anyone realizes. Itâs hard being a teenager. Kacey Flournoy knows that all too well. Stuck in a school district full of snobby rich kids, she doesnât fit in on her single momâs salary. When sheâs cast as a bully, it only gets worse â especially since sheâs the one being bullied. And her poor mom, Delaina, doesnât know what to do. Since Kaceyâs dad died while serving in the military, itâs all she can do to put food on the table. When Hayden draws his first assignment through Citadel Security, he canât believe it. No way does he want to follow a poor little rich girl around all day to guard her from a bully. It doesnât take him long, however, to figure out that somethingâs terribly wrong. And when he tries to right it, he meets the one woman who just might make him break his long-standing promise. That would mean heâd have to let go of the past, but heâs sure heâs not ready and he never will be. A novella nestled between the first and second books in the first spinoff series from the Love Under Construction series, One Broken Promise takes the hunted to the hunter, the oppressor to the oppressed, and one very scared man to a place that will bring him to his knees. If youâve ever been bullied, youâll feel the pain. But youâll also taste the joy of a promise broken.
Unfortunately the title of âOne Broken Promiseâ by Deanndra Hall was all too fitting. I had high hopes about this book because the plot sounded really promising but unfortunately the storytelling did not work out for me.
