Promise Me This by Sarah Ashley Jones
Welcome to the South - where the tea is sweet and the accents are sweeter. This Southern way of life is all Charlie has ever known. It’s not until she loses the only person who pushed her to break free of the Southern Belle mold that she starts living the life she needs and not the life her parents forced on her.
Jhett has lived on the edge for as long as he could remember - constantly teetering back and forth between being a rock star and living a normal life. His rebellious and sometimes arrogant attitude is known to get him into trouble, especially with the girls who hang on his every move.
Charlie never thought that a trip to pack up her brother’s apartment would leave her feeling even more unsettled about the grainy details of her brother’s death. Her quest for information leads her straight to his old hangout and into arms of Jhett, who suspiciously knows more about her situation than he ever should.
Only a few questions remain - Can you trust someone based on their word alone? And if you make a promise, how far will you go to keep it?
Shona's review 5 of 5 stars
I read this as a Beta reader for the author so I cant mention specific events as they may change before the final edition.
OK I have just finished Promise Me This and I loved it!
Charlie and Jhett's relationship was great. From the very first moment they met I loved the way they interacted with each other, even when they weren't getting along...
There was so much emotion poured into this book that it was impossible to stay detached. I literally fell into this book and got carried away with its emotions, to the point there was crying; proper heart ache, throat hurts, voice hitching, tears falling, crying at several points.. And I wont tell you where because I hate spoilers.
This is Jones' first book and all I can say is wow!
