Title: Vow of Honor
Author: Emma Renshaw
Genre: Contemporary Romance

I canât stand Tatum from the second she walks into the room. Everything about her puts me on edgeâfrom her small delicate curves to the smile that she refuses to lose.
Thereâs nothing she loves more than to piss me off. Sheâs infused herself in every part of my life, taking away the silence I crave. Iâd walk away if I could. If I hadnât been shot. If I didnât need physical therapy. If I could resist her.
I only kiss her to shut her up. I didnât expect it to turn into the hottest moment of my life with our clothes scattered on the floor. The one-time thing turns into something neither of us expect.
When my guard drops and secrets are revealed, Iâll do anything to protect Tate. We have enemies lurking around every corner.
Will my vow of honor cost me the one thing I canât live without?
3 Star Review by AshleyBeing totally new to Emma Renshaw, I wasn't totally sure what to expect going into Vow of Honor. For the post part I enjoyed this quasi enemies-to-lovers romance. But it almost felt like a tale of two books. There were a few plot lines that never really took off- even though the characters kept showing up. And then the second half of the book was this crazy, dangerous showdown.
I won't lie, it was Tatum, not James, that was my favorite thing about this book. She was relentless but also tender and kind. Though she was a bit softer than I like my heroine, she grew a backbone rather swiftly, especially when it came to James. That broody jerk. He had a soft spot for his friends but had very few attachments. But he just couldn't resist his pull to Tatum. She worked her way under his skin and into his heart. However, his past kept him ready to run at any moment and when it showed up, he did what he thought was best to protect everyone around him.
Cue the intense. Mafia connections, a best friend scorned and a showdown a decade in the making. James was ready to face it alone, and possibly not walk away but his friends that became his family wouldn't let him. Tate wouldn't let him. My heart was racing as the bullets and deals were flying.
So like I said, Vow of Honor was a bit of a mixed bag. Some parts were really great and kept me riveted while others just seemed to go nowhere. But that ending- be still my heart- it was so perfectly James and Tatum that I couldn't help but smile.
Emma loves to write, just don't ask her to write about herself. If she isn't writing, you can find her lost in a book or trying to get her doggo to take a selfie with her. He usually refuses. At the end of the day, you can find Emma at the closest Mexican restaurant eating queso and sipping on a margarita. She lives in Texas with her husband and dog.
