Three Broken Promises By Monica Murphy Blog Tour

Breakout New Adult sensation Monica Murphy returns with a hot new contemporary romance—a heartfelt story of second chances, forgiveness, and redemption.

Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life. 

I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Monica Murphy is a native Californian who lives in the foothills below Yosemite. A wife and mother of three, she writes New Adult and contemporary romance for Bantam and Avon. She is the author of One Week Girlfriend and Second Chance Boyfriend.

I read One Week Girlfriend and loved it. Then Second Chance Boyfriend, I swooned. Now I read Three Broken Promises and I am like this 
Jen and Colin have known each other for like ever
Since they were kids. He is her older brothers BFF. You know what that means right? she is so off limits. Her brother went to the war and died 2 yrs prior. Colin promised that he would always watch out for her. He does. She works in his restaurant and lives with him. I know your like ummmm wait what? So was I, but as I kept reading I understood it. My heart broke for both of them. They are both dealing with the passing of Danny (Jen's bro). Colin is not taking it so well, even though its been two years he has nightmares. Jen is dealing with other hidden secrets. 

I could see the love they have for one another but Colin doesn't want to admit it to Jen. Its gets frustrating because I just wish he would spill his guts. Then you know what they do?
I was like okay hopefully now they can be all happy and stuff, but you know that can't happen because where is the fun in that? 

I enjoyed this book so much. I loved reading the way the characters connected. I love that Fable and Drew make guest appearances. Fable is such a great friend. Drew made me smile with his advice. I absolutely love Jen and Colin, I enjoyed  the journey. While there were times I wanted to smack one or the other upside the head, I understood why they did what they did. Monica Murphy has a way with words that had me captivated and reeling. 

I gave this book
