In this steamy sequel to Tempt Me at Midnight, Quentin and Lexi Reddick are enjoying a life of wedded bliss. They have everything they could ever want and their love is stronger than ever, proving why best friends make the best soul mates.

But when a stranger from Quentin's past appears unexpectedly, old wounds are reopened, forcing him to confront the family he never knew. As his anger threatens to consume him, Lexi hopes her love will be enough to teach him the healing power of forgiveness.

So apparently I have been seriously slacking on keeping up with some of my favorite authors. Maureen Smith released another book to a favorite series of mine, the Wolf Pack, and I had absolutely no clue.

Now I know what you are all are going to say, ” Natalya, every series you talk about is your favorite.”

That’s not true! While it may seem like it, I am actually very selective about the series I read. However, I discovered Maureen Smith and her Wolf Pack about two years ago and have been following ever since.

This I Promise You follows Quentin and Lexi Reddick whose love story we saw unfold in Tempt Me At Midnight. It was good to catch up with the family and while Quentin isn’t a Wolf, not even blood could make him any closer to the family as they welcomed him into the fold at a very young age. This I Promise You picks up about two years after Lexi and Q got married. They have a six month baby,Quentin Jr., and marriage life seems to be working well for both of them.

Q has never known his mother’s family after they turned their back on her for marrying his father. However, his mother’s estranged brother comes to visit almost four decades later and things get shaken up a bit.

Even with this visit, the book is pretty low on drama. It served as a family reunion of sorts as we got caught up with some of our favorite couples. This I Promise You serves as a bridge novel of sorts to her upcoming spin off series which will feature more of the Morehouse Nine. I look forward to that series and more books from Smith. While you don’t have to read any of the previous books in this series as the author provides enough details, I would suggest reading at least Tempt Me At Midnight. Wait, who am I kidding? I really want you to read the whole series. So while it is not necessary, please read Treacherous when you get a chance and work your way down.
