Abel Denton loves to fuck, loves to kill—and now he has found the woman destined to be his. The only problem? She thinks he’s a creep. Okay, he did go and snatch her off the dance-floor, and he may have felt her ass, and pretty much told her that she belonged to him, but what’s the problem? 

Harper cannot believe that Abel will not take no for an answer. He has all the stalker tendencies, not good even in a book boyfriend, and she knows all about them. But then, Abel turns out to be really good company, and she likes him. 

On the spur of the moment, Harper finds herself married to Abel Denton, more to prove to herself she’s fun than for any other reason. But when she is with him, everything else fades away. Can this attraction become love? 


Shattered Vows is the second book in the Denton Family Legacy Series and it was okay. I really liked the previous book Broken Promise but thought it rushed a lot in the end… This one did exactly that again but in a subtler way. So, I wasn’t too mad at it.

In this installment we have Abel and Harper… And it’s quite different their relationship especially since they get married after the second date... First off Abel when he first sees Harper, tries to grab her ass immediately and still expect her to not think he’s a creeper. Seriously dude? So, Abel is kind of a prick. All the brothers are, to be honest.

I didn’t really connect with Harper in this book. I think she didn’t have any outstanding personality to stand out as a main character and for someone so indecisive she decided to marry a man she didn’t know all to easily and then regretted it 24 hours later. At least don’t regret it. It’s done. Suck it up. I really wanted to slap her a couple of times. 

She was more of a stay at home, study, and think about the future person. Gambling, partying, they damaged brain cells, and drinking, too. Alcohol was not good for the system. It made women lower their inhibitions, and teenage pregnancy was a huge issue. She wasn’t a teenager, but she also wasn’t twenty-one, either.

Abel was someone I really enjoyed reading about. He went from a Casanova to a family man in less than 24 hours, and he tried damned hard to make Harper happy the whole book and to challenge her. Even if it was by lying and pretending to be someone he isn’t… I dig that. But if you compare him with Jacob… Jacob is way better.

“Tell me one thing, Abel,”
 Damian said as he made to turn away.
“Is it as intense as they say?” 
Abel knew what he was asking. Glancing toward Harper, he nodded. “The world falls away, and you know without a shadow a doubt that she will be yours for the rest of your life.”

But if I didn’t really connect with the main couple why do I still like this book? Well, because we got POV from a lot of different people. Mom, Dad and Landon were characters that I liked but because the previous book almost ignored them I didn’t get the chance to meet them. But now with these POV’s it was truly amazing to get inside their heads… And those characters alone made the book good.

Also, we see the continuation of Lou and Jacob and their adorable little child. And, as usually, we have serious business underneath all this love stuff. So, the mob part was there, less than in the previous book, but it was there.
