A provocative love story between a tough Kansas woman on a crooked path to redemption and the unlikeliest of champions, from the New York Times bestselling author of All the Ugly and Wonderful Things
Zee is nobody’s fairy tale princess. Almost six-foot, with a redhead’s temper and a shattered hip, she has a long list of worries: never-ending bills, her beautiful, gullible sister, her five-year-old nephew, her housebound mother, and her drug-dealing boss.
Zee may not be a princess, but Gentry is an actual knight, complete with sword, armor, and a code of honor. Two years ago the voices he hears called him to be Zee’s champion. Both shy and autistic, he’s barely spoken to her since, but he has kept watch, ready to come to her aid.
When an abduction tears Zee’s family apart, she turns to the last person she ever imagined–Gentry–and sets in motion a chain of events that will not only change both of their lives, but bind them to one another forever.
One thing I know for certain after finishing The Reckless Oath We Made, I absolutely love how Bryn takes two unlikely people and always brings them together. In some way or another, they bond and attract and I love the way she does this. It never ceases to amaze me. It’s beautiful.
As with All the Ugly and Wonderful Things— I love all of the POVs in this story. Bryn is so incredibly talented when it comes to this. Keeping a story going through multiple and continuous POVs. Strategically placed. It is wonderful. I think with having this, the characters become much stronger and three dimensional. We are able to see how they are coping with situations, what they’re thinking, etc. I love that!
But I’m just going to say it: I struggled with the medieval talk. I did. Not my cup of tea. I could not stand it. Nope. (If you do like it, I’m in no way knocking you. Nor would I ever.) I just didn’t like it. Plain and simple. I thought it took away from the story. I was spending way too much trying to decipher what Gentry was saying and meaning that I couldn’t focus on the plot/story on hand.
It took me way longer to get through this than I had originally anticipated. Especially since I zoomed through ATUAWT. But with The Reckless Oath We Made, you take this wild ride that you just don’t expect. Bryn has this magnificent talent of telling stories that get you lost in the world you’re reading about and I think the multiple POVs help with that aspect.
