Series: Once Upon A Crime Family Book 2
Rating: 4 stars
Publication Date: June 7th, 2016
How often do I like a sequel better than the first one? Almost never, which is why this book was so suprising. I usually don’t like it when the main character changes to someone else in a series. This book also has a lot more to do with the criminal and political aspect of the Families and the Organ Trade.
Maggie is SO different from Penny. I’ll admit, she wasn’t very likable in the beginning, but giver her some time, the girl’s been through ALOT.
She is so strong and determined, the only girl in an all male business. She has to work for every little bit of respect she has. She’s business minded and focused on profits rather than the patients. She doesn’t understand that people die without transplants. Her grief over Carter so real, and no one understands because her relationship with Carter was a secret. The fact that she’s able to overcome it is so inspiring.
The romance is better than the first book’s, were it just seemed to happen too fast. In Break Me Like A Promise it’s a nice slow burn, and even better, a hate to love story.
You do need to have read the first book to really understand this one. It’s fun to see how Penny and Char have ended up, and I like how even though they’re secondary characters they still grow and overcome even more challenges.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.
