I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
A Story of friendship, family, and above all else, love.
Victoria West was Vivacious, determined and thought her happily ever after was all mapped out. When tragedy strikes, claiming the life of her new husband, she receives information that shatters her world.
Three years later, Victoria finds herself beginning to trust another man for the first time, but is she prepared to expose her darkest fears and share the biggest secret of her life with him?
Doctor Aiden James is dedicated to his profession and has little time for relationships, but there’s something about Victoria’s vulnerability and beauty that makes him want a different future. One where she becomes his.
An unfortunate twist of fate leads to Aiden making a discovery about his own past. Consumed with guilt, will he choose his professional oath or damn the consequences for Victoria?
Two people destined to be together but both are keeping secrets that could destroy their chance at forever.
Meeting someone special and falling deeply in love sounds simple, but people aren’t blank canvases. There is a thing called the past, and the past shapes us in different ways. The Vow We Made tells the story of Victoria and Aiden, who have more in common then they think. I love their sweet and realistic story.
Victoria seems to have it all; a job she loves and the support of her family and friends. But what most people don’t know is that she’s still recovering from the day that should have been the happiest of her life. Getting involved with a man again isn’t part of the plan, but she can’t help herself when it comes to Aiden. Aiden is a busy man; working long, odd hours as a doctor at an A&E department doesn’t leave much time for socializing. Not that he doesn’t want to find love, but he knows not many women would put up with his work schedule. The moment Aiden and Victoria meet there’s an instant connection, and both can’t ignore it.
Victoria and Aiden are both amazing people, but together they’re just swoon worthy. I love Victoria, she’s much stronger than she believes, and she has bravely rebuilt her life after ‘that day’. I get that Victoria is a bit skittish (I would be too), but sometimes I want to friendly shake some sense into her. Aiden is an awesome guy who knows what he wants. I love his ‘chase’ of Victoria, it’s so him. I love Aiden and Victoria for each other; I was so happy when they decided to give their love a chance.
The Vow We Made is already the third book by Loriana Cappello. And like her other books it’s about real people with realistic thoughts and actions. Because this is a romantic story there some clichés, but the author uses them at the right time. They don’t cause unnecessary drama for the sake of drama but feel naturally to the story. Besides a great leading couple there’s a set of interesting side characters, who are all supportive of our couple. I love The Vow We Made, and I can’t wait for future books by this author.
