Shannon's Review of The Promise

The Promise
By: S.L. Jayne
Release Date: December 19, 2013

How far would you go to help your best friend? 

Do you remember when you were young, and made pinky promises with your best friend about living together, dating movie stars, being famous and double weddings? 

Ava and Rylee had the same plans. Knowing the home life Rylee had, Ava knew that all of those dreams of fun and freedom would always be just that. Dreams. That was until one night, Rylee asked Ava to pinky promise they would move away as soon as they were old enough and able to. 

Ava's advice to Rylee is to have fun and have faith, but most of all believe in herself and learn to trust that not all guys can't be trusted... But can Ava learn to take herself own advice when it comes to her own heart? 

This book is intended for age 17+ due to sexual content, violence and strong language.

About the Author:

I love reading, I have way too many book boyfriends and I love to chat! I have a daughter who I love more than the stars. She is my whole life. My family have and always will be my rocks, they have stood by me through everything.

I sometimes talk too much, I have huge blonde moments, big freak outs and hyper moments, which lead to me being reminded to breathe!

After starting to read again more regularly I met some great girls online through our love of books, and they have become some of my closest friends, it's really true that somebody doesn't have to be right next to you to make you feel great. Since being an admin on a Facebook book page I have gotten to know some amazing authors and a few of those I now consider great friends.

Shannon's Review

“How far would you go to help your best friend?” is the absolute best way to describe this book. This book is a great finding love, renewing love, and the bond of two best friends. It is a fabulous story showing how much a friends really do for each other.

Ava is a badass with a great personality. She has have life, in the love department, deal her a bad hand. She is a wonderful friend to Ava but has a problem excepting her own advice. She I feel like is a lot of us. She can tell you what the best thing would be to do but sometimes it’s hard to incorporate it into your own life. I will tell you that she does have someone there but she has to look very hard in the situation to determine if she is going to give it a go.

Rylee is a scared young girl who has a friend that would do anything for her. She is completely against love to the point she makes fun of it. I love her though. She finds a good friend in a guy Matt, who you will absolutely fall in love with, that works really good for her. She has to deal with some family drama too. Damn step parents.

I will tell you it is a cliff hanger but it ends in a good way. It gets you completely ready and geared up for the next book coming out.

 I am giving this book 4.5 hearts. It really is a great story but also has a story within a story. Now go get it so you can totally drool over Matt.

4.5 out of 5 hearts
