The Reckless Oath We Made by Bryn Greenwood

How I Read It: Audiobook/ Ebook

Dates Read: 8/21/19-8/22/19

This is the final August 2019 BOTM book I have read, and I am disappointed that I didn’t read choose it. Out of all the books, this one and Dominicana were the books I was most nervous for. I just wasn’t sure I would really like them. Man, was I wrong. I could not put this book down, despite (or maybe because) of its weirdness.

After a prison escape gone wrong, LaReigne Trejo is taken as hostage by two escapees, who are also white supremacists. Her sister, Zhorzha (Zee), is trying to figure out what happened and how she can fix the whole situation. Her hidden weapon, also known as her stalker, comes in the form of Gentry Frank. Gentry is her champion, and due to his autism, he finds himself constantly in the world of knights and dames. Zee begins using all the connections she has from when her father was in prison in order to get information so she can bring her sister home, and Gentry every step of the way does his best to protect her every step of the way.

Okay dude, this book is messed up, but also amazing. I fully recommend you listen to the audiobook. I’m not sure who the voice actor was that did Gentry’s voice, but give this man an award. I didn’t want to stop reading/ listening and it has everything to do with how clever the book is. The book is crude, innocent, raw, fun, serious, and on top of everything else, entertaining.

I can’t think of anything really negative to say, but I also don’t feel right giving this book 5 stars. There is just a feeling like I should give this book a little less than that. Sp I am going to give this book 4.5 out of 5, but dude, read it. You won’t be sorry.
