BETROTHED is a trilogy of standalone stories that explore the world of arranged marriages and how they affect every couple differently.
Single mom Maria Alvarez has dealt with enough: the violent death of her boyfriend Antonio, living a life of poverty, and listening to the neighborhood gang beat down her door for money she's never had.
Now? Gabriel Santos is back in town.
Gabriel was Antonio's best friend in the gang. He also knows more about Antonio's death than anyone else - including Maria.
Like how Antonio made Gabriel promise him one thing before the bullets fired.
If anything happened to him, he was to marry Maria. And now Gabriel's back in town to make good on his promises.
Truth or Dare
Maria has been raising her son on her own since her boyfriend was killed in a drive-by shooting. She's been doing her best to get by but when the gang starts really pushing her to give back the money Antonio stole, Gabriel reveals that he's back in town. Before Antonio died, he made Gabriel promise that he would marry Maria if anything were to happen to him. Now that he's gone legit, Gabriel is back to make good on his promise and to keep Maria and her son safe from the gang life.
This book was fast-paced and full of suspense. Every time I thought I knew where the story would go, it go somewhere completely different. This series really has made me suspend my preconceived notions on what arranged marriage is and how each person approaches it.
