Trent McNeil was a classic trust-fund kid until he watched a team of firefighters save his family home. From that moment on, he rebelled against the path his parents were determined to keep him on. Now a San Diego firefighter, he knows he’ll eventually be expected to take over the family empire. But until that day, his only plan is to have fun and enjoy life.

After a childhood of upset and uncertainty, Amy Hodge is going to make something out of herself. She has her future all planned out. She's starting medical school and is going to be busy...far too busy for a relationship. But she does have time for a quick fling before she buckles down and concentrates on her studies.

Amy quickly realizes that playboy Trent is not all he seems to be. Never relinquishing control and sticking to her plans has done well for Amy, but no one has ever made her want to throw caution to the wind like this sexy firefighter.

Each book in the Under the Pier series is STANDALONE:

“A firefighter and his med school love make for the perfect slow burn romance.” –Shelley B., NetGalley

Without Promises is filled with a passion, a fake engagement, family boundaries, and commitment issues. It's a sweet romance that kept me turning the page.

Oh wow. To say I wasn’t expecting what this little beauty turned out to be would be an understatement. What we got in this book wasn’t what I expected, it was more, it was better, it was amazing!

I already read several books by this author and so far I liked them all. The same goes for the writing style of this book.

Without Promises by Delancey Stewart was an interesting read. A trust-fund man with dreams of more and a woman fighting for her dreams at all costs. This is a standalone series of interconnected characters and can be read as a standalone.

Trent is an over the top type of man, "Trent wasn’t joking about the wooing. During the first week he spent at the office , he seemed to feel like buying gifts would make up for not spending actual time together."

A great addition to the series. Trent and Amy sizzled together. And I truly loved the way he pursued her and never gave up on her. Trent could make you swoon, big time.

I loved the first, stand-alone book in this series, Without Words, so I had a feeling I would love Without Promises, too. I was right! (Can I trademark that as my tagline?)

About the author

Delancey Stewart

With an English degree from UCLA and many years working in various fields tuning her writing chops, Delancey now focuses on contemporary romance, working from her current home outside Washington D.C. Thanks to a traveler’s heart and her marriage to a Marine, Delancey has lived in small towns and big cities, and writes about both. She stays busy as the mom of two little boys, and finds time for writing when she’s not at soccer games, PTA meetings or basketball practices. Delancey writes the Love in the Vines Series – romances set in vineyards from Paso Robles to Oregon. She’s also penned the Prohibited! Duet, published by Carina UK. She has written WITHOUT WORDS for Entangled Publishing, LLC Entangled, and has another steamy romance called RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW coming from Loveswept in summer 2017.
