This is not your cookie-cutter childhood best friend love story.
We were best friends since as early as I could remember. We grew up together. We were next door neighbors. We shared each other’s deepest secrets. When I was thirteen, we made a pact: if we were still single by the time we were 30, we’d marry each other.
Today was my thirtieth birthday. I was single. I knew he was single too.
But we were no longer best friends, and a part of me knew that he hated me.
This is book one of a three book series. Books two and three will be full-length novels.
Book Two: Promise to Keep
Book Three: Promise of Forever
***New Adult Contemporary Romance **Mature Content** Recommended for 17+ due to mature language and adult situations.***
I loved how this story alternates between past and present. We begin in the present, with one awful birthday to say the least. Chloe has just had one huge surprise and to boot, shes turning 30…alone. With this truth in her head, all she can do is think about the pact she had with her best friend all of those years ago. When an opportunity presented itself to go home, and possible find him again, she takes it! This book flashed back and fourth from her childhood to present day, and you realize why Chloe is the way she is and why guilt plagues her every step of the way.
I love how Chloe is very honest with herself about all of the things that have gone wrong in her life and why she did the things that she did.
We flash into the past, in order to understand this friendship from her past that completely changed her life. Some people are not lucky enough to find friends like Jax and some who do, take them for granted. But how do you recognize when a friend is just a friend or when they have feelings of more for you?
This story ends on a Cliffhanger! Can’t wait to read Promise to Keep(Promises #2)
