ADD to GR:


Warm brown eyes that melted my unsuspecting heart.

A smile that knocked me off my feet.

His touch—raw electricity.

I never saw Harbor Westcott coming.

I was a small-town girl with big city dreams and more ambition than money to my name. He had everything—money, privilege, and the world at his feet.

Opposites in every way, but that didn’t matter. We were lightning in a bottle, and everything felt possible when we were together.

Life was perfect.

Or so I thought . . .

Years later, I’m no more prepared for him than I was the first time. He swears on his life that we are meant to be forever, but I know I can’t survive this man twice.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

I’ve really struggled with what to write about this book. Because while I enjoyed Harbor and Lark’s story, and the journey they took together, I felt like it was lacking the *oomph* that I’ve felt reading SL Scott’s books in the past.

Parts of this book were amazing — I thought Lark and Harbor had a great connection right from the start, and I felt the instalove between them. He’s a rich kid, she’s from the other side of the tracks, but they quickly became each other’s worlds and he went to such lengths to make sure that she was taken care of. Even at his own expense.

But there were parts of the book that didn’t work for me. For as close as Lark and her roommate are supposed to be, when we were shown their friendship, I didn’t feel it was as strong as I’d been told it was. And the roommate created unnecessary drama that I didn’t really was necessary to the plot of the book. Lark was horribly betrayed by one of her other friends, and I felt it was just glossed over. What was the point? And the whole bit about her birth mom felt shoehorned in. And then… and THEN… the time jump happens like 70% into the story… and it fell so flat for me. Where was the grovel? Why wasn’t she angrier? I was hoping for more, and it just felt like a letdown.

Swear on My Life isn’t one of the best books I’ve read by Suzie. And I admittedly am in the minority. It didn’t pack the same punch for me that We Were Once did. But like I said, there are parts of this story that I really enjoyed.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
