Review ~ THE BACHELOR'S PROMISE by Naima Simone

The Bachelor’s Promise (Bachelor Auction, #3)
by: Naima Simone
Series: Bachelor Auction
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 29, 2016
Publisher: Entangled Publishing ~ Indulgence

He’ll never trust his enemy’s daughter…

Aiden Kent never expected to see Noelle Rana again. He’s determined to keep his distance from the beautiful enigma wrapped in denim and leather. He can’t trust anyone with the last name Rana. But he made a promise to his dying mother, and it isn't long before Noelle invades his personal space. He can't stop thinking about the exotic beauty's alluring curves.

He wants the daughter of his enemy, and he’s determined to have her…if only for one night.

If Noelle wants to move forward with her life, she must make a deal with the devastatingly gorgeous, broody millionaire Aiden. He made a promise years ago, and she’s come to collect—even if it means facing down the only man who ever broke her heart. And there's a really good chance he'll do it again.

The Bachelor’s Promise brings together two characters with a shared history, both in need of a fresh start and redemption.

Aiden Kent and Noelle Rana first met as teenagers when their parents were dating and moved in together.  To say Aiden detested the Rana family is an understatement.  But when Noelle needed Aiden’s help, he was there for her.  A budding friendship began until the death of Aiden’s mother.  Due to events involving her family, Aiden cut Noelle out of his life and in the process broke her heart.  Six years have passed and Noelle is ready to reclaim her life, but she needs Aiden to keep the promise that he made to his mother on her deathbed.

What Naima Simone has given readers is a true story of fighting for the love of the person who holds your heart.  Noelle and Aiden are characters that I love for their strength, conviction, and courage.  Neither truly believes in love and they definitely don’t trust each other.  Noelle may be a pixie, but she’s tough as nails and when push comes to shove, stands up for herself.

I have to admit that immediately I saw no way these two could be a couple and have a happily-ever-after.  Aiden’s hatred for Noelle’s family runs deep.  While Noelle knows her father and brother aren’t perfect, they’re the only family she has.  I found timing of certain events in the past to be a little unclear, adding to some frustration and confusion on my part.  I ultimately liked the ending, however I’m still not sold on how the family issue was resolved.

The Millionaire Makeover ~ Review

Naima Simone’s love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey and Linda Howard many years ago. Though her first attempt at writing a romance novel at age 11 never saw the light of day, her love of romance and writing has endured. Now, she spends her time creating stories of unique men and women who experience the dizzying heights of passion and the tender heat of love.

She is wife to Superman—or his non-Kryptonian, less bullet proof equivalent—and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, domestically-challenged bliss in the southern United States.
