Summary:

Seth is back.When he walked back into my life, it almost felt like the pieces of my broken heart could be fixed. I thought we could go back to being best friends, but then I started to feel what I had been blocking out for years. I tried. Boy, did I try! But once I started to let him in, I wanted nothing more than to cross that line from friendship into something more…

Just when I think I can move on and let myself be happy, an ugly reminder from my past comes storming in and threatens to destroy the sliver of hope that’s been growing since Seth came back.

Do I even deserve to be loved?

“I’m not asking to fix your heart. I’m not asking to mend you. I love each and every shattered piece of you. I’m asking that you let me love you. Let me love each piece of your broken heart, and I swear to you I will make up for every heartache you have ever experienced.”

I came back for Josie.

I knew I’d have to fight for her, but with the loss of her dad and the truth about what happened with her and Blake, I quickly realized that making her mine was going to be a lot harder than I first thought. The problem is, I can’t pretend like she’s just my best friend. I can’t pretend I don’t want more.

I’m willing to do anything to get her to admit she has the same passionate feelings for me, because I know once she opens up and stops lying to herself, I can show her what it really means to be loved. It’s a battle of wills, but my love for her is stronger than her will to stop me.

So I fight for her. I fight because I know she deserves it.

**This is book two in the Promises, Promises series, and book one should be read before you read this one. Also, this book is for mature readers (17+), so if you do not like getting turned on or reading hot steamy scenes, this book is NOT for you!**

Review:

Just as emotional as the first book!!! Love that Josie finally worked herself and her heart out. Thank you SETH!!!! Blake well he has some things to overcome and still has not made it back to decent human being status. I am proud of Josie’s perseverance in this novel…that being said!! I also felt like she was a bit too needy, too clingy, too dependent. I suppose that’s ok; I just happen to be nearly anti social and try not to depend on anyone for anything is all.  I am glad that this part not only tied up some loose ends BUT also opened the door for the 3rd novel [which sounds like its going to be called That’s a Relief – from the authors FB page.] I was a little unnerved with how Josie’s best friend had initially treated her and sided with Blake but over all she pulled through. I wasn’t too fond of the scene between Seth Josie and the Tree; Don’t get me wrong it was super steamy sexy hot in a raunchy way but it just didn’t sit well with me personally. I loved this book though I stayed up all night and some of the morning to finish reading it and was not disappointed. HUGE cliff hanger at the end that makes you demand the 3rd novel. I cannot wait for it to come out. I will say that this book was a little longer than i expected and sometimes i felt like a  chapter was never going to end and sometimes got exceedingly cheesy. The profanity was at an all time high sometimes bringing the “script” down to sometimes what i felt was a high school level. I get that the characters were sometimes expressing raw thoughts or feelings but it just felt like there was  A LOT more f-bombs in Book 2 than Book 1 but a lot more intensity as well. I give this book a 4 simply because sometimes it lagged on and i had to drag myself through it but overall it was as good as the first one and made me anticipate the 3rd one.

 

Recommendation:

If you invested in Pussy Cat, Blake and Seth in the first book PLEASE Read Book two because it looks like when there is a book 3 its is going to be one hell of an emotional roller coaster
