Charlie Jennings and Jhett Hudson knew that a single moment could change everything.
It took them one song to find each other, one question to give them a chance, one kiss to fall in love, and one night to almost lose it all. But they had one thing other couples lack—pure, unconditional love—and that takes more than a moment to walk away from.
Falling in love is only the beginning. Forever is what happens next.
This book includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.
After losing her brother, discovering far more about his life than she ever imagined, falling in love with a gorgeous guitarist who kept too many secrets, and having it all come crashing down again, Charlie’s coming apart at the seams. But despite all that’s been lost, Jhett still holds her heart, and while she may be an emotional mess, she can’t bring herself to take that final step away from him.
Jhett’s torn apart as well, but while Charlie might push him away, he’s not willing to let go completely, not when they need each other to get through, to move forward, and to finally find their happily ever after. The past never truly fades away, but love has a way of making it bearable.
OMG, the reunion! I don’t know if I’ve ever read one that was described so perfectly that it not only played out like a movie in my mind, but I could practically feel every emotion and movement.
Promise Me Forever is in many ways unlike the first book, filled with emotional turbulence and raw reactions, but somehow it fits perfectly. It’s a short read (which is great, since more would have been too much), so it’s nearly impossible to describe without giving everything away, but it’s wonderful closure to the open-ended Promise Me This, with Jhett becoming even more lovable (if that’s even possible!), and Charlie working through everything that’s happened.
If I hadn’t believed in their relationship at the end of the first book, this one would certainly have convinced me.
