By all appearances, Nicki Reading is a star. PR director at a major music label, Nicki is sharp, successful, independent, and confidently calls the shots. She dates whom she wants, when she wants, with no strings attached. But beneath that shine, loneliness flickers. Events from her past prove love leads only to pain. Commitment is not an option.

Until Dex Hanover, a classy, principled, and prosperous CPA, enters the picture. Undeterred by his unhappy childhood, he has an amazing capacity to be both caring and generous, giving his free time as a mentor for a child from the projects. Dex wears his paternal yearnings on his sleeve, and he is at a point in his life where commitment is the only option.

Despite their opposing views, Nicki and Dex ignite each other. But will events from their pasts ruin their challenging relationship and prevent them from experiencing everlasting love?

Since I am a city girl at heart, I am always drawn to books that are set in a metropolitan area. It so happens that this book, Sworn To Forget by new to me author Maria Imbalzano, primarily takes place in Philadelphia, a city of which I am very familiar with. The surrounding areas that are mentioned, are also close to home. So needless to say, right off the bat this book felt very genuine. Additionally, the alluring cover caused me to be interested in the book's content. Ms. Imbalzano's writing style is easy to understand, descriptive, and brings out the true emotions of the characters. This is a hot, well-written book that is worth reading. Public relations guru Nicki Reading, and Dex Hanover, a partner in a successful CPA firm, met on a cruise that they were both attending with other people. They shared an instant spark, which very quickly evolved into much more when they returned to the mainland. Nicki is ready to settle down, but she is not okay with starting a family. She does not believe being a mother is in her DNA. In contrast, Dex wants to settle down and become a father more than anything else in the world. At first, the lust and love they share is not enough for either of them to give up their respective views. However, as the discover more about life and each other, their needs change. I really enjoyed this book. Nicki and Dex have amazing chemistry and their heat is scorching, both in and out of the bedroom. They are interesting characters with complicated pasts, and the author does a great job of incorporating their strengths and weaknesses. If you enjoy a novel with a strong heroine, an eclectic group of caring friends, and a hero that just won't give up, then check out this book.

A book that takes the reader through every possible emotional roller coaster possible. You get the highs and lows of life. You get love, you get heart break; you get life long friendship, you get dark secrets; you get hidden demons and you may even get a modicum of happiness. Maybe. A lot of points resonate out of the terrifically written novel. To go through life with preconceived ideas is just setting yourself up for failure. You are never going to find happiness with someone if the first thing you consider is how you want to change that person. To look for 'fatal flaws' in someone is again, setting yourself up for failure. If there was a soundtrack to Nicki and Dex, it would be Sarah McLachlan's Push. I was brought to tears with Dex's proposal to Nicki. I nearly threw my tablet out a window with their last break up. The Sworn Sisters connection is very relatable and a great anchor through the tumultuous lives of the Sisters. They support and challenge each other through love to bring out the best in each other. You might say a lot of this book is how not to have a relationship. Trust must be there from day one or you are inevitably doomed. I was deeply challenged when reading this book. It is excellently written, and I recommend it to almost everyone. A hard read but one you won't be able to put down. Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author in the hopes I'd review it. My Rating: 4.5 stars
