Falling in love with Benjamin wasn’t in the plan, but Mallory finds she’s all but lost her head and her heart after two and a half years of banter, memories, and now shared books.
But when her ex-fiance (does it count if it was just for a few hours?) shows up right in the middle of a writing project with Benjamin, the guy manages to ruin her happiness… again.
Benjamin has been keeping one tiny part of him back from Mallory–just the one thing that’ll repel her for good. So when the ex-boyfriend-slash-fiance shows up, and things look serious again, he takes a giant step back and prays he can keep his heart intact in the process.
They’re clearly meant for each other. God obviously has a plan. So what’s it going to take for Mallory and Benjamin to work things out and get those vows made?
This Breakers Head novel is Chautona Havig’s final book in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

Find her at chautona.com and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.
About the Narrator
Speaking Life into Story
Queen of the one-eyebrow quirk, Christa DelSorbo auditioned for the role of Tarzan’s mom and has the photos to prove she ended up as the only cast member in a literal cast. These days, they keep her stuck in a box with a ball on a stick and only feed her when she reads another chapter of another fabulous book. She loves every minute. Or so they tell her. *eyebrow slowly raises *

Book, Chapter, & Vows is book 25 in the Independence Island series. This is Chautona Havig's final story. I have read all the books in the series. They can be read as stand alones, however characters will appear in appear in multiple books. I am saddened that this series will be coming to a close soon. The series started releasing July 2020. Ironically, Chautona is the one that kicked off the series.
In this story, we see a bit more romance then we normally do in a Chautona book. Mallory and Benjamin are a cute couple. However, Benjamin has been holding something back. He is afraid it will run Mallory off. Things seem to be going well until Mallory's ex boyfriend/fiance shows up and Benjamin worries that there may be more then meets the eye. Will they work it out?
Let's talk about the narrator, Christa. I have been so lucky and blessed to listen to several books that she has narrated. She has such a voice for reading. I could listen to her read all day. Her voice is always so calming. Her voice has great power and control. She elevated it when needed to draw attention quickly. I just love listening to her read.
The story is well written, there is great character development. I am sad to see this author's contributions conclude. I have been enjoying my trip to these islands. Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
