About the Book:
Angelina has sacrificed everything to be with the man she loves. Forced to abandon her family, and even her own identity, Angelina depends on Haithem as never before. With no more secrets between them, Haithem has become the source of all her needs. Sexually. Emotionally.
But not even Haithem can hide forever.
While they're sneaking across borders, avoiding persecution from everyone who would see Haithem dead and his prototype stolen, the media fascination surrounding Angelina's disappearance continues to mount.
For Angelina, it's a brutal reminder of what she's left behind and the pain she's caused to those who believe her dead or held against her will.
To Haithem, it's a warning: he stands to lose the one person left in his life he loves beyond measure. The hunt won't be called off until his enemies have destroyed him, his life's work and everyone involved—including Angelina.
He has only one choice. He's promised to protect her. And Haithem always keeps his promises.

Promised & Delivered!
Why? Well, she created Haithem, that’s why!
Didn’t You Promise? is the second book of Ms. Bardan’s that I’ve read, the first being Didn’t I Warn You?, which is the first book in the Bad For You Series.
For a series that is Bad For Me, it certainly feels real, real gooood…
Okay, let’s see if I can get my mind unscrambled enough to give a clear and concise review.
What I liked about this book:
I LOVED Haithem and I sort of liked Angelina. Haithem is the sexiest damned stalker I’ve ever read! Yes, he was a stalker there for a bit, but he had his reasons, and his obsession with Angelina was gawt damn hawt. I loved that he was willing to risk his life to bring clean, sustainable energy to the world. I loved that he thought of every contingency, and made sure that, no matter what, Angelina would be safe.
Man, I wish all men were as over-the-top protective as that… without being total possessive assholes, of course.
I loved how the story took me on a journey around the world, and I thoroughly enjoyed how well-traveled I felt while reading Angelina’s POV of India and Malaysia and The Maldives. Man, I really wanted to be there with her—in bed with her sexy ass hunk of dark, brooding man.
I loved, loved, loved how much Haithem loved Angelina. Ms. Bardan did an amazing job writing a depth of emotion into his character that made every obsessive thought and motivation sexier. I really felt his need and devotion to Angelina, and it really pulled me into the story and their plight to be together while the world was trying to tear them apart.
What I didn’t like about this book:
I wasn’t too keen on how EASY Angelina made it for Haithem to apologize for his obsessiveness. Yes, I know, I’m nuts for WANTING him to be possessive but also wanting him to be punished for it. What can I say? I like it when a man fights tooth and nail for his woman!
She should’ve made him walk through fire with sticks of dynamite tied around his neck… instead, after his TV interview where he vaguely mentions her, she is jumping from his skin trying to get to him. Damn, woman, at least make him come crawling to you on all fours, naked… Mmmm… What was I writing about?
Well, all this to say that I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read Emma and Avner’s story in the next Bad For You book!
Amber, can I have that in advance, please?! I’d love to be our beta reader!
