“We’re a match made in heaven but forbidden as sin.”

After tragedy struck, I vowed never to fall in love again.

For the last ten years, I kept that promise, never staying with a woman longer than it took to screw them.

Then she walked in…

Back then she was nothing but a little girl, but now she’s all grown up, with curves, and a smile that reminds me of everything I’ve spent the last ten years trying to forget.

My attraction to her is instant, and wrong, on so many levels. I’ll do anything I can, even make her hate me if I have too, to stop it.

She’s here to study, and I’m the newly appointed Dean.

I shouldn’t be tempted by a student, especially one who’s ten years younger than me.

And I definitely shouldn’t be developing feelings for her.

But I am…

Because as badly as I don’t want to admit it Lily might just be the one person to make me fall in love again.

That is if I can let go of the hold her dead sister’s memory has on my heart first.

**This is book four in the North Woods University Series. It can be read as a complete standalone and contains NO cliffhanger, NO cheating, and a HEA. Please be advised this series contains material not suitable for all readers. This is NOT a YA series.**


The Vow is a sexy and forbidden student/teacher(aka Dean) romance that spoke to the taboo lover deep in my soul. This dynamite duo took me on a rollercoaster ride full of feels that had my heart completely swooning in overdrive. The authors beautifully captivating storytelling ability wholeheartedly captivated every part of me and I absolutely adored every moment of Sebastian and Lily’s story. If you have read the other books in the North Woods University series, then you have probably been eagerly waiting for Sebastian’s story like me. I mean come on, who wouldn’t want his story?! I know I FREAKING did…that is FOR SURE!

Sebastian Miller just landed his dream job as the newly appointed Dean of North Woods University and things are going well until a blast from his past arrives suddenly out of nowhere. Lily Kline is the reminder of all that he has lost and she is the LAST person he should want, but he does. Their love is beyond forbidden and with so many obstacles standing in their way things are about to get tricky. Their story will take you on a ride full of twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end!

Sebastian and Lily’s story was hands down my favorite in the series (although it can certainly be read as a standalone)! There was so much to love and if you are a fan of this trope then you will LOVE their story too!
