Blog Tour: Broken Promises

About the Book

After three years in Boston attending college, Mallory Wells has come home to Casper, Maine to care for her father, who is dying from cancer. She left Casper without looking back, leaving her small-town life and everyone in it, behind. Including her sexy high school sweetheart.

Luke Bates was devastated when Mallory left him for the city life. He managed to pull himself together and move on, even if only just barely. When Mallory shows up in town, Luke vows to stay away from her at all costs. So why does he keep checking in on her and her father, showing up when he's clearly uninvited? Maybe Luke isn't as 'over her' as he thought.

My Thoughts

This is a fast moving story about love, loss and rekindling old flames. The relationship between Mallory and her dad is complicated at times but his care and concern is evident in the choices he makes.  Mallory and Luke may share some hard feelings but they waste no time getting to know each other again. They're surrounded by an entertaining cast of characters who do a decent job of helping them both focus on the long term and what's most important to the two of them - whether together or apart. The ending was a bit abrupt but this is the start of a series so maybe it's not really the end for these characters.

  1. Broken Promises sounds like an emotional book and you've made me like the characters already! Sometimes father-daughter relationships get complicated, but it's refreshing to see them in YA/NA books :)
