Novel Review: Colters' Promise (Colters' Legacy, #4) by Maya Banks

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Rating (Out of 5): ~3
Publisher: Penguin (Berkley Sensation)
Spoilers?: Mild.

Goodreads Synopsis:


Return to the captivating storytelling of New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks, and her stirring saga of three brothers and one indomitable woman—of wounded hearts, family, and forgiveness…

When it came to overcoming the odds of a tragic past, Lily was determined to move on. The three Colter brothers helped her do it. They taught her new ways to love, new dreams to share, and offered her a new life that she never thought possible. Now is a time for celebration, and what better way than with a long-awaited family reunion, a homecoming that will bring together the entire Colter family and a few surprises no one anticipated.

But first, there’s something from Lily’s past she still needs to reconcile—even when all the while she is holding close to her heart a newfound secret that will change her future, forever enrich the Colter legacy, and make every promise come true.


This was my first Maya Banks book, and I obviously should have started somewhere else. I’m not saying that this one wasn’t good, because it was, it was just telling the reader a later storyline to plotlines that I should have known already. I do plan to read the previous books, and this did kind of tell me which ones I would like to know more, but it still would have been better to start with the first one.
This book has little snippets of what is going on with all of the Colter’s: the parents are happily married, with Holly deciding to make dinner for Christmas. Lily found out that she’s pregnant (again?) and is having a hard time dealing with it and telling her husbands. And Callie is sick and helping her husband with his sister. I did enjoy reading about it all, but probably would have appreciated it more had I read the previous books and had more of a connection to the characters.
Callie’s is the story I’m most interested in, with Lily’s up second, but I do plan on reading all of them at some point. I do really wish I’d have gotten a different of hers, but I did enjoy this one, and will probably re-read it after reading the other books in the series.
I have some of Banks' other books now and plan to read them soon, and it's bit bothersome to me that they are so hard to find where I'm at. Most of my bookstores have a very little selection of her books.
