Series: Blood Duet #1
Author: Maria Luis
I bow to no man.
The words are tattooed on my skin, just as they’re branded on my heart.
But I never planned for Sergeant Lincoln Asher, a man as deceptive as he is
cold. His dominance sets my teeth on edge . . . and my body on fire. He won’t
stop until I’m his, but I’m not his to take.
My secrets bind me—and blind me.
I live in the shadows of New Orleans. Hidden and protected in the underworld I
call home. I know who I am.
I vow never to kneel before a man…
And he will be my downfall.
ARC BOOK REVIEW
“Sworn” by Maria Luis was such a good read it was also the first thing I’ve read by this particular author.
From the minute I started this I was transfixed and transported into the fascinating world of Avery and Lincoln.
Set against the decadent background of New Orleans; we are swiftly immersed into this rich tapestry of secrets and lies.
“Sworn” features Lincoln and Avery; the former a cop and the latter a tarot reading runner just trying to live her life whilst also staying under the radar.
Hiding really; in plain sight.
When these two finally connect sparks do fly, but with both hiding so much from each other and also drowning in undisclosed information how can it ultimately work between them both.
Well, I for one couldn’t wait to find out.
And got to say this was just so good.
like seriously couldn’t put it down good; the chemistry between our H and h was rocking and really hot and the storyline here was just action-packed with never a dull moment throughout.
And that ending MAN!!!!
what a cliffhanger; I for one can’t wait to discover the outcome from where we left it here.
Good job I don’t have to wait too long ay.
So this is told in dual POV and is relatively low on centre stage secondary characters.
There’s really only Katie; Avery’s best-mate/roomie, who I really adored by the way.
It’s an easy to follow, well-written piece of fiction that definitely gets the stamp of approval from me.
This is one of them stories that just grabs you by the throat and digs in.
I need the next instalment of this like yesterday.

“My cards.” I lifted my gaze to her face. Shock resided in those hazel eyes of hers, as did distrust. She was right not to trust me—that was a fact. I cleared my throat. “Read my cards.”
