Promise to Keep (Promises #2)~ by Jessica Wood

promise to keep

Blurb:

I’ve loved her since we were seven. We were best friends. We even made a pact to marry each other if we were both still single at thirty. I grew up thinking I would always love her for the rest of my life.

But I was proven wrong. Because the first time I made love to her turned out to be the first time I hated her. It became the first time she hurt me, and the first time I wanted nothing to do with her.

Today, nine years after the day that broke us apart, we are both thirty and single, and fate decided to intervene. I finally discovered that the reasons behind her betrayal were far different from the ones I’d created years ago in my mind.

Now I’m torn between my hatred over what she did and my undying love for the one girl who I’ve held close to my heart for most of my life.

But is the truth enough for me to forgive her?

My Review:

So this book begins where we left off with the prologue by Chloe, however chapter one begins with Jax, which I absolutely love! I am so excited to be inside of Jax’s head! In these stories there is always someone who is the voice of reason between two jerks that are stubborn and won’t listen to one another! I’m so glad the voice of reason is Aunt Betty! During the flashbacks,we learn that Jax isn’t the angel that he has made himself out to be in the whole situation and Jax is learning that maybe Chloe isn’t the only one who needs to be asking forgiveness. (Deflate your big head Jax).I loved how neither one could forget what meant so much to them growing up, the memories stayed with them. In the end, Chloe finds out something that could jeopardize what she and Jax have only just found in one another…she doesn’t handle it well. Chloe makes a decision that could mean the end for their relationship, and she could pay the ultimate price. Will Chloe ever learn to let someone help her??
