My entire life I’ve felt like I’ve been paying a penance.
I never thought I deserved this. A rockstar in one of the biggest bands in the world.
My life consisted of parties and women until one thing changed everything.
I was going to be a dad.
I never wanted a family. I was fine on my own.
Until her.
Until I couldn’t get enough.
Until she was the one thing always on my mind.
She is changing the way I think. Giving me a new outlook on life. One I can almost taste.
But things can change in the blink of an eye.
And promises made can turn cruel.
I should have known I’d never get a happy ending.

Cruel Promises is the second book in the Saints & Sinners series and tells the story of Silas and Marley.

Cruel Promises was another amazing book by Tori Fox and I’m already looking forward to reading the next book in the Saints & Sinners series. Cruel Promises has a few Romance tropes: Rock Star Romance, Opposites Attract, and Good Girl/Bad Guy, and it was the perfect mix! I really enjoyed getting to know Silas and Marley, and I loved how they both changed throughout the book. I also really liked reading about Jackson and Charlie, from Black Hearts, again!

Cruel Promises is about Silas and Marley. Silas is the bassist of the Saints & Sinners band, and Marley is the pastor’s daughter. Although they’re opposites, their chemistry is amazing. I really liked reading about both characters and seeing how much they started to depend on each other and eventually love each other. This book was really beautiful and I’m so happy that Silas and Marley got their happy ending!

Cruel Promises was a spicy read, but it also talked about emotional stuff. I really enjoyed the mix of both, and Tori Fox did such a good job with this book. Like with Black Hearts, there’s a link to a bonus scene at the end of the book, and damn, you gotta read it! I really enjoyed reading Cruel Promises, and I cannot wait to read the next book in the Saint & Sinners series, Dirty Secrets. This book will be about Knox.
