Mia Sheridan - Grayson's Vow

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Stacey

A full-length, standalone romance from the New York Timesbestselling author of Archer's Voice.

Kira Dallaire is desperate.

Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet. 

Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.

Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse. 

What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.

As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY LIBRA. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Being a lover of Mia Sheridan's books I went into this story expecting great things - and tears. What I got though was different to my expectations.

As usual this was a beautiful love story though it wasn't as passionate as the others, it was more humorous, but not a bad thing as Mia still managed to make the love shine through the pages; she never fails as her words are so beautiful and meaningful.

Grayson is an empty soul and thinks of Kira as a spoilt rich girl, only out for her own benefit. I could tell from the beginning that they were both going to fall for each other even though they were both as stubborn as each other, though playful with it and I loved that as it is so different to Mia's other characters. They have so much more in common than they both think and are truly made for each other.

"I find," I said softly, moving my hand slowly across the table to lie on top of his, "that sometimes the best thing you can do is smile."

There are many situations sent to test them throughout this book and though Kira manages to fight through them, she has to be the one holding poor lost Grayson up too as he has given up the fight (oh I bloody love him). I adore Charlotte & Walter too (Grayson's housekeepers) who have grown to love Grayson as their own, with their own sad story behind them.

"...the problem is, you can't shut off one emotion without shutting off all your emotions. You have to feel the pain if you're going to feel the joy. It's just the way it works."


"there's nothing on earth like the feel of someone who loves you grasping your hand in the dark when you're lost and afraid."


There was sex in this book but not as much as I've previously read from Mia (though still passionate when there was), which I think makes it stand out more that this whole story is such a beautiful one of building relationships, discovering ourselves, trust, loss and fighting for what we believe in. I had many shouty moments and more than enough tears throughout. As I said at the beginning of this review, Mia's words throughout were so beautiful and there are so many more excerpts I highlighted that I could share with you, but you will have to read it for yourself! ;) Yet again another 5* read from Mia.

"'ll find, that where there is real love, there is always real hope."
