A SEAL's promise is not only something to live for, it is something to die for. Special Operator T.J. Talbot, raised in a string of foster homes and nearly tossed from the Brotherhood, is forced to make a deathbed promise to care for his best friend's wife and baby. At home, Shannon Moore wants nothing to do with the community or anything that reminds her of her fallen SEAL husband, until fate steps in to show her she is still connected, and needs the love of this flawed warrior who shares her grief.
Quite interesting book. TJ and Shannon have never gotten along. She married his best friend but has never liked TJ at all. Frankie is the only thing the two of them have in common. When TJ makes a promise to take care of Shannon and the unborn baby, his life changes. Shannon and he share deep grief over the loss of Frankie and maybe they can learn to share move.
This book didn't really have a lot of surprises, just a fairly predictable story line. I liked Shannon. She wasn't as uptight and aloof as she presented herself to be. TJ was a dog but also had never had the chance at a family. He is the underdog that you root for. Though the story was predictable, it was still entertaining. The narrator did a good job with the story, bringing the characters to life and giving them a voice.
This was a 3/5 for me. It is a well read book to listen to on your commute or going for a jog!
