Promise Me

Promise Me


The Navy made me the man I am, but I wouldn’t have survived without her.

Violet Shaw. My Vi.

I made her a promise a long time ago, and she thinks I broke it. But I never stopped loving her. I never will.

I was fool four years ago. I threw what we had away, thinking it was for her own good. No girl should have to wait around for a soldier that might never come home.

Everyday I thought about her; I fought to come back to her.

Now that I’m back in our hometown, I see her everywhere, as curvaceous and tempting as ever. But all she’s doing is pushing me away.

I was her first and I want to be her last.

I just need one chance.

I threw what we had away once — I won’t make that mistake again. Vi is going to be mine.

**Promise Me is a full-length standalone romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.

My Review:

Genre: Romance – Second-chance
Stand-alone: Yes
Part of a Series: No
POV: Alternating
Steam level: Steamy in parts

This is the first Vivian Wood book I’ve read and the second for Willow Winters.  Overall I really liked this book.  It was fast-paced, well-written and kept my interest.  I only had one issue, which was the use of “gonna”, “gotta” and “cum” – especially the “goona” and “gotta.’  I found it jarring and it threw me out of the story.  At one point there was a line that read “I’m not gonna!”  Now I know that it was supposed to be a key, pivotal moment in the book but all I saw was a toddler stomping during a tantrum and after that it was all over – every single time I read “gonna” I wanted to stomp me foot and then I’d giggle.  I had a hard time believing that people in their 20’s would talk/think like that.  Aside from this, which is really my issue, I found the book situations and emotions to be realistic and the characters relatable.  I liked that the angst was not too dramatic.

I received this book for free from the author and I’m voluntarily giving an honest review.
