GRAY’S PROMISE ( KING SECURITY NOVEL 2) by Anni Fife


BLURB
A jealousy that destroys everything in its path…a love that refuses to die.


Zoey Morgan seems to have it all as a successful surgeon in Boston. However, perfection lies only
on the surface. Plagued by nightmares and amnesia from a tragedy that ripped her family from
her fourteen years ago, she finds the courage to reach out to the only man who can make her feel
safe. She’s buried the memory of their love, but her heart—and her body—responds to the
ex-marine in ways that are all too familiar.


Grayson “Gray” Walker’s heart shattered when Zoey chose another man over him. Since then,
built an impenetrable wall around his emotions. But from the moment she implodes back into his
life, her vulnerability breaches his defenses. His skills as an elite member of the King Security
team cannot shield him from the devastation of learning he might have left Zoey high and dry
when she needed him most. Now, Gray must navigate the tripwire of helping her heal while
protecting himself from being hurt again.


As the embers of their potent love reignite, an old threat awakens, leading to greater danger than
ever before.


TAGLINE
A jealousy that destroys everything in its path…a love that refuses to die.


EXCERPT 1


A jealousy that destroys everything in its path…a love that refuses to die.


Gray’s hands balled into fists. He wanted to punch the walls. “Take me to her. Now!”
“You need to control yourself, Mr. Walker.”
Rage joined the sick fear churning inside him and he glared at the doctor. She didn’t flinch.
Her face held no judgment, but her steady gaze also gave no quarter. Gray found it anchored
him, offering him no alternative but to deal with the reality slamming into him. The rigidity in
his body eased. Doctor Wells nodded slightly, and in a cool, precise voice, continued. “Given
Miss Morgan’s concussion and the yet unidentified drug in her system, we would prefer not
to administer any more sedatives.”
Ping!
The doors opened and they stepped out. She led them down another corridor and stopped
outside a numbered ward. “Mr. Walker—”
“It’s Gray.”
“Okay, Gray.” She clasped her hands in front of her. “Zoey is extremely agitated. To calm her,
you need to find the calmness within yourself.” Her probing stare insisted on a response.
He nodded sharply.
“She’s on the edge of hysteria and in danger of hurting herself. If you cannot calm her, we will
be forced to sedate her for her own safety.”
Zoey!
Gray’s heart hammered wildly. He closed his eyes, and for the first time since he’d raced into
the ED, let her image surface.
His beautiful red butterfly. Mercurial and brilliant. Her dark-copper hair alight with so many
fiery streaks, he was constantly amazed it didn’t singe his skin. The curly length was
unexpectedly soft, so goddamn sexy when it slipped like satin through his fingers. But as
much as he loved her hair, it was her eyes that endlessly beguiled him. Tapered like a cat,
they were vivid-green with a golden ring around her pupil. A fascinating combination of
sex-kitten and innocent, and such an integral part of her expressive nature. There were times
he thought they were too large for her heart-shaped face, but then she’d laugh and they’d
turn that intense jewel-like green. Wicked. Infectious. Or she’d whimper with desire, and the
golden ring would leak into the green. Hot and slumberous. Untamed.
“Gray?”
He opened his eyes, forcing Zoey’s image back into darkness. “Take me to her.” He met the
doctor’s unblinking scrutiny. “Please.”


My Review: 

Gray's promise is book 2 in the A King Security Series. I read book one, Luke's Redemption, a while back and loved it. I was lucky enough to receive an email from Annie herself asking me if I wanted to read book 2. I of course jumped at the chance. I am so glad that I did. As good as Luke's Redemption was Gray's Promise tops it. To me this book, actually both book's are movie quality. You know when you read a book and think to yourself I would love to watch this play out on the big screen? Well that is what I kept thinking. This book had my heart breaking, my heart racing, and my heart jumping for joy, and sometimes doing all 3 at once. There is a perfect balance of romance, which by the way is a 2nd chance romance, mystery and murder. The book is gripping. It drags you in on page one and makes you want more on the last page. I was on the edge of my seat, turning pages as fast as I could. 

In the book Zoey Morgan was 19 on the night her world turned upside down. She was brutally raped and her family was murdered, and the love of her life walked away. Now 14 years later Zoey has blocked that night away in her mind and cannot remember anything but a few snippets here and there. She is out to discover the truth of that night as well as why her love left. 

Grayson "Gray" Walker's heart was broken on that night when he is told that Zoey, who he called his Butterfly, has accepted his brother Jacks proposal of marriage. He decides to walk away and join the Marines. He has tried to see Zoey a few times over the years until one night she told him to just go away. Heart broken and defeated Gray does as Zoey asks. 

Now 14 years later Zoey walks into the King's Security Office asking Gray for his help to unlock the memories and find out what really happened that night so she can move on with her life. 

If you like a good roller coaster ride, I think you should grab a copy of this book and buckle up. You won't be sorry.
