Final Vow is a New York Times Bestseller.  This is the sixth and final novel in the Bluegrass Brothers series.

As the ultimate bodyguard, Ahmed’s focus has been protecting the lives of everyone he cares about. When the darkest part of his past resurfaces, Ahmed knows he must go on the offensive to protect his future . . . a future with the one woman that can match his toughness and return the love that was once robbed from him.

Bridget Springer’s private security work involves training with a mysterious man feared by many in her line of work. She finds herself drawn to Ahmed despite his attempts to remain distant. Bridget vows to help Ahmed in his pursuit of justice, not knowing the full danger that she would find along the way.

As Bridget and Ahmed’s passion heats up, so does the threat from Ahmed’s oldest enemy. Can they defeat him and finally be free to pursue their chance at love?


I fell in love with Ahmed when I first read about him in “Bluegrass State of Mind” and I’ve been curious about him since. With The Final Vow, I like how Kathleen Brooks kick off the story. I was pleased knowing that Mohtadi and him are not simply Master and Head of Security but the best of friends as well.  As I’ve said before in my previous blogs, I love great stories of friendships, and The Final Vow among other things is that kind of story.

With this story, not only the question of “what happens next?’ will keep you holding till the and but also the question of “what happened then?”.  The  backgrounds of the hero and heroine were not only essential to build their character, it makes you hold your breath thinking of how these pasts will make them react in the present. The way the characters acts and reacts made them seem so real.

I think, it was a great choice to team up Ahmed with Bridgette. Her feisty nature was what Ahmed exactly needed so he can losen up and be himself once again. The way he described Ahmed – mysterious and loyal – made me think she knew him well and I loved her for that. And of course, the action and adventure of these book was something I really look forward to in Kathleen Brooks novels. They make the dish more spicier and delicious just like the Rose Sister’s famous tea.

Keeneston. I’m sure everybody who’ve been through the Bluegrass Brothers series look forward to the cameo role of everyone in Keeneston. I love that even Noodle, Dinky and Henry Rooney had their shares of their happily ever after. I am still curious about the Rose Sister and John and wish to read more about their lives.

The way Ahmed worked his way to asking Bridgette hand in marriage, Mohtadi putting sense on Ahmed’s head when he seem to lose it, the battle of the Royal Family and Dani finding ways for Ahmed to hold on his happiness are my most favorite part.

The Final Vow is me falling in love with Ahmed over and over and over again. All in all, I’d say Kathleen Brooks ended this series not with a vow but with a bang.
