A big welcome to RJ Scott as part of her review tour with Signal Boost Promotions for Promise.
Reading this series is like catching up with old friends, while making new ones. Although this story is Leo and Jason’s, Leo’s former housemates Sean and Eric still play a decent sized role in the series, and I enjoyed catching up with them a while after the events of their books. I love the friendship between the three men. It’s obvious by their actions and banter that they are close, know each other well, and have each other’s backs. I’m enjoying how that is expanding to include their partners/husbands and families.
I enjoyed this latest addition to the series, and loved Leo and Jason together. I liked that they were both hesitant and Jason’s slowness to trust made a lot of sense considering everything he’d been through. His fear of being found by the wrong people, and losing Daisy feels very real. I loved how Leo slowly thawed Jason’s heart, and how he and Cap were able to get both Jason and Daisy to trust.
Cap deserves a special mention. His scenes with everyone, and especially Daisy, are adorable.
I liked how this story delved more into Leo’s past, and his PTSD and how it didn’t shy away from some of the nastier side of being a cop. I loved his family and his relationship with his brothers. His mother is a force to be reckoned with. I loved Jason as a new dad, with him and Daisy still getting to know each other, yet already each other’s world. Although this story is about their growing relationship, it’s also very much about them growing a family with Daisy. This story has a very strong family vibe, not just with Leo, Jason, and Daisy but with Leo’s relationship with Sean and Eric too.
I loved the ending—it made me happy.
I’d recommend this story to readers who enjoy a feel good romance with realistic characters, a strong family vibe, and a dog who is a character in his own right. 5 out of 5 stars.

Leo Byrne is a cop, Jason Banks is an ex-con. Even after one stolen kiss, something has to give before Leo can convince Jason that falling in love is even an option.
Adopted at a young age, Leo is part of the sprawling Byrnes family. With his dog Cap, three siblings and a whole mess of nieces and nephews, he is never lonely, and his life is full. Love is the last item on his to-do list, but seeing his best friends Sean and Eric happy and making new families makes him want things he doesn’t think is possible. Kissing Jason at an event to honor his bravery was one thing, but anything other than that is off limits. Until Jason has no one left to turn to, and it’s Leo who helps him at his lowest. Taking Jason and his daughter into his home is one thing, but falling for the ex-con is something else altogether.
Jason made a deal to keep his daughter safe and spent years behind bars as a result. Volunteering as a convict firefighter was as much about helping the community as saving his sanity, but now that he’s out, he doesn’t even have that. He’s lost his future, his self-respect, and has no friends or a place to call home. Worst of all, even after rescuing his daughter he still can’t keep her safe from the man who wants to use her as a bargaining chip for money. Meeting Leo might give Jason a way to keep Daisy safe, but falling for the stubborn cop means the truth has to be revealed, and he could lose everything all over again.
