Didn’t You Promise is the second installment in Amber Bardan’s Bad for You series. This book picks up from where the first book ended so if you haven’t read that book you will need to do so before starting this one. Angelina has just learned who Haithem really is and why being with him will not only put them but everyone they care for in danger. Haithem’s new innovation will change the world’s energy crisis but for that to happen they have to safely deliver the device without getting themselves killed first. These two have a long battle ahead of them but Angelina is confident now that all the lies have been revealed they can make their relationship work, they just need to trust and depend on each other. Everything seems to be going well for the couple for a while but when danger strikes Haithem will stop at nothing to protect Angelina. I have to say that I enjoyed this book even more than the first. Angelina has grown since becoming involved with Haithem and her habits and tendencies to whine have decreased drastically. While Angelina is still young her maturity level really starts to develop throughout the book and I find myself liking her character even more. Haithem is older than Angelina so he has more patience and years of experience under his belt to handle things better. I will have to say, without giving too much of the story line away, that I didn’t really think he handled all of the situations like he should have but who knows how any of us would handle the person we love be threatened. I really enjoyed the dynamics and relationship between these two. It was such a struggle for them at times that it makes you think of them more as a real couple instead of characters in the book. This book put me on a rollercoaster of emotions so be prepared to laugh, blush, scream and cry. Overall I really enjoyed this book and the series and would recommend it to others. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All opinions and ratings stated are my own.
Rating: 3.5 Stars Didn’t You Promise is the second book in Amber Bardan’s Bad for You series. It’s a direct continuation from the first book, Didn’t I Warn You, so you really need to read the first book in order to truly understand the relationship between Haithem and Angelina. Of course, calling it a relationship is an understatement when it comes to the passion and intensity that surrounds the two of them. Haithem and Angelina have a twisted history that is based on a chance meeting that eventually lands Angelina on Haithem’s boat in the middle of the ocean. Months have passed since their odd romance began and Haithem is still trying to protect both of them from people trying to stop Haithem from crippling the energy business with an invention that he and his murdered father created. As sequels go, this one is missing something. It seems that everything that happens this time around drags on in a continuous loop. We have come to expect Haithem to be overbearing and a habitual liar but it’s crazy that Angelina still believes him anyway. He lies to protect her but he never even seems to understand why his lies are hurting her so much. Haithem does everything out of love but he has no idea what it means to be equals in a relationship. Sure, people are literally trying to kill them but Haithem seems to be the real danger to Angelina. That being said, I just didn’t find Didn’t You Promise to be as believable as Didn’t I Warn You. I would have expected more of an evolution from both of them but that doesn’t happen until late in the book. The only evolution that does occur happens between the sheets where things become more pornographic than the first book. Their heat literally burns through the pages. I’m not sure what I expected overall but I hope that the author changes direction in the third book because I feel like this thrill ride is getting a little boring. **Received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review.**
She has given up everything for the man she loves, even her identity and he has become her world, the one person who can give her all that she needs, but they are on the run, hiding out from danger and certain death. Haithem is the target for evil. His creation is life-altering and for some, it will mean their financial and power hungry demise. It cannot to be allowed. Follow their desperate journey to stay one step ahead of death as they live each moment together with sizzling passion and his pledge to keep her safe. Angelina’s disappearance is known globally, but no one knows the truth, it was her heart Haithem stole, not her person. One slip can bring their lives to an end, but does a phone call count? Didn’t You Promise by Amber A. Bardan is raw emotion at its sharpest. Haithem will do anything to keep Angelina safe, but what happens shreds her will to live. Their love is almost too over-powering, but is it the need to compact a life full of emotion into an unknown quantity of time? Ms. Bardan does not hold back on the action, the tension or the passion with bold strokes of her pen and gut-wrenching scenes as she guides us through this maze for survival and love.
