Today we bring you a review by fellow reviewer Jesiree for Grayson’s vow by the talented Mia Sheridan. Lest see what Jesiree gave this story 4 stars.
Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.
Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.
Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.
What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they’ll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.
As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

Mia Sheridan wow’s me every. single. time. Every book I have read of hers I have adored and Grayson’s Vow is no exception.
The backbone of this story is two individuals; Grayson and Kira, who are both at low points in their lives. They have so many similarities from experiences but they have taken two different paths- hopeful and not hopeful.
Kira and Grayson reach the same point in life at the same time, financially stuck with minimal support, big dreams with minimal options. So Kira approaches Grayson with an offer he can’t refuse (and I mean can’t because he has no other offers or options) and so their love story begins.
Now, I have read a few romance books over the years, and aside from that one traumatising reading experience, the guy gets the girl. So I had faith that Grayson and Kira will end up together but what I think is special about this book is the banter and antics that Kira gets herself, and Grayson, involved in. There were actual laugh out loud moments throughout this book and Mia Sheridan’s strong writing is to thank for that;
Where Grayson is brooding and serious, Kira is full of life and for me Kira is the reason I have fallen in love with this book. I made one highlight while reading this book and it was from one of Kira’s chapters:
But sometimes, I supposed, a girl just had to be her own hero.
I think this sums up not only Kira, the personal challenge she faces to trust in a relationship but also everything I wish romance books had more of. Kira wasn’t a damsel in distress waiting for a book boyfriend to save her; she was out there, standing up for herself, making her own way and solving her own problems.
So, while for me Grayson’s Vow wasn’t my favourite Mia Sheridan book it’s still a five star read because… Kira. She is my current girl crush xx (less)
