Didn’t You Promise by Amber Bardan

This is the follow up to the first book in the series, Didn’t I Warn You, and it picks up pretty much where we left off, Angelina being made completely aware of who Haithem is, why is his running, and how dangerous his life is going to be for the foreseeable future. I think the thing that struck me the most when I first started this book is how different these two characters are. In the first book they still had this push and pull dynamic, going from being a captive basically to being two people who fell for each other, so I was more focused on that in the first book. But in this book, I really noticed the striking differences. I mean Angelina is very young, and not just in age, but also in I think maturity as well, her parents are very sheltering and a lot of her life was devoted to her brother who passed away, and she missed out on I think of experiences. On the other side you have Haithem who is older, much more mature, and very comfortable with who he is. He is a very focused man, he is super driven to get this one goal accomplished and he is very fierce in both protecting the woman he has come to love, but also in getting his goal accomplished.

I liked Angelina, and the thing is she is not normally the kind of character I would like on paper, but within the book I actually really liked her. So Angelina is kind of shelter, or maybe babied is the right word, she has some serious heartache in her past, and because of that her parents and the people in her life hover. So when she runs into a hot dangerous looking guy, she is without a doubt intrigued. But when it comes time to decide if she wants to take him up on his offer of a few weeks away at sea, she backs down. But after a fall she ends up stuck on board the yacht at sea with the dangerous Haithem. I liked how she reacted to the situation, she was actually pretty believable, I mean her reactions ranged from being nice to lure him into trusting her, anger, bargaining, just everything she could think of to get of the yacht.
