One promise.
One forever.

One look and I knew Cole was mine. My dark rebel in leather. My powerhouse of passion, devastating smiles, and impulsiveness.
When his job sends him overseas, he promises to return to me.
A promise that’s destroyed in the most irrevocable way.

Two years later, an arrogant suit invades my heartbroken loneliness.

Clean-cut and stern, Trace is everything Cole wasn’t.
At first, he’s a job that will rescue my dance company. But as he intrudes on my life, our hostile relationship evolves.
He knows I’m still in love with Cole, but his dedication is my undoing.

Then a catastrophic moment changes everything.

Promises resurface.
Lies entangle.
And an impossible choice shatters my world.

I love two men, and I can only have one.

"He’s a curse, a blessing, and a second chance, like the black walls of desolation collapsing to reveal a glimpse of light. Being near him shakes me to the very roots of my soul."

Wow! I was blown away by this book. One Is A Promise hooked me from beginning until the end. It's the perfect blend of intrigue, passion, lust, love and a lot more of feels inexplainable yet was there undeniably no words can explain. 

I am a Pam Godwin virgin. So much for me being a reader, I do not know where am I all these years that I haven't had the chance to read her works. Word is she's great. Her writing were exemplary, etc. etc. the list goes on. I agree! The moment I started reading the book it was so hard to put it down yet was so easy to turn the pages anxious on the next scene. The writing was flawless that it was easy for me to get into and feel connected with the characters and the story itself. Everything just feel so real and alive I had goosebumps! The delivery of the scenes and what Pam wanted to convey was so intense and powerful! The love-hate-lust portrayal kept me in the edge. Like WOW!

Honestly, books with tropes like this feeds my hungry soul. I love messy relationship. I love how I'm being pulled right into the story, pained, in lust, in love confused, anxious, teased and Pam Godwin delivered that to me. Danni and Trace' character portrayal and their journey in this first book of the trilogy was perfectly crafted like that. And then with flash backs of the past my soul shouted with glee because Cole was so much like Trace and I had difficulty of choosing who should end up whom, who belonged to whom and all I could say was, make it more complicated please. And she delivered it so well that I was on the edge with my mind anticipating for the next scene. I enjoyed it. I loved it. Nail biting, heart swooning , confused, hot and bothered and so in love I was all that and then nearing the end I felt like my world was just crushed. I never saw that twist coming. I was shocked and no matter how I wanted to say NOOOOO all I could think of was HELL.TO.THE.FUCKING.YES! This will just make this story even more exciting and intriguing. Yes, Pam Godwin! I am a glutton for punishment, make it more complicated and I am still ALL IN.

So without giving you too much away, not even a summary, I will just end up my review telling you all to READ.THIS.BOOK. I devoured it because it was so good. You might ask me why not 5 stars then? Don't get me wrong, as I said the book was good. I was just looking for more angst, more soul and heart crushing and mind numbing feels this trope is usually associated with. But please don't make this cloud your judgment. Read the book because you will not be disappointed. Who knows what the author is in store for us in the next installment. It's just the first book. It's not even the tip of the iceberg. 

Overall, I highly recommend this book. July might be that long and surely the anticipation for what's about to come might kill us but at least we have a book so good to look forward to. To Pam Godwin, you just had a fan in me.

You know what I love more than the actual romance in a story? ANGST. I don’t care what it is, there’s just something about that feeling you get when there’s an underlying seductiveness and a line that you know you shouldn’t cross, but eventually do. Every built up frustration, every not so innocent touch, every argument, will all boil down to one epic sexual indulgence. And when that happens, there’s no going back. 

“You can’t love me, because you’re trapped in another life with another man.” 

Four years ago Dani’s world was flipped upside down. Losing the love of her life was the worst pain in the world and even though time has passed, she’s still grieving the loss of her fiancé but also trying to move on. Being a professional dancer and loving how she can creatively express herself through a dance and having the music as a soundtrack to her heart, is the reason why Dani is the best at her job.

Having the new owner of her work place barge into her life like a hurricane and tells her that from now, things will be different,, has Dani not only perplexed and outraged, but sexually frustrated. Trace is the complete opposite to the man who completely stole her heart all those years ago. He’s sexy, broody, demanding, and never has a smile on his face. Ever. Who would want to be around someone like that five days a week without strangling or screwing them? Well Dani is about to see the many sides of Trace and she’s in for one heck of a ride. 

“My life began the day we met. There is no before. Only you.” 

I knew going into this book that this was a part of a series so I was quite prepared for certain things to be somewhat glossed over and I was okay with that. The past played a pivotal role when it came to Dani and Cole’s relationship and ultimately set the stage for their future and I loved the fact that we got a glimpse of that.

Now I’m going to be honest and say that Dani was not my favorite person. For some reason I just didn’t like her and it made it extremely hard to connect with her as a character. Did I feel for her in the situation she was in? Of course I did. What she went through wasn’t easy and I deeply sympathized with her on that part but other than that, I just wasn’t a big fan of her. As for Trace, he was PERFECT in every crazy way and I loved his honesty and his determination in getting what he wanted. I honestly cant wait to see what he’s going to do in the rest of this series and I’m excited and scared at the same time!! 

This ends on a MAJOR cliffhanger so if you know you’re a stabby person, please refrain from reading this until part two is available. I’m just kidding. Read this book! Make sure you have wine first though.

Coming Soon!

Two is a Lie

Release Date: July 11, 2017 Amazon | Other retailers | Goodreads

Two lies. Two men who don’t share.
I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury. His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.
Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever. And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.
The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them. Fighting and fucking. Resisting and submitting.
Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.
I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.

Three is a War

Release Date: August 29, 2017 Preorder Links | Goodreads

Three means war. Three sides vying for forever.
Cole. My first love. The bad boy with the dangerous smile and passionate temper draws attention like a lit fuse on dynamite. But his dark molten eyes spark only for me.
Trace. My second chance. Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.
Me. The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight. I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering. What options do I have left?
I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.
