Promise Me This by Sarah Ashley Jones

Cover Design by Okay Creations.
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

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?

About The Author

Sarah Ashley Jones was raised in San Diego, California, but currently wrangles her husband and four dogs in Clarksville, Tennessee. When she's not writing she works in a pottery studio and comes home covered in paint on a daily basis. She has a slightly unhealthy obsession with cupcakes and chapstick. She is an eternal optimist and can often be found dancing and singing to music at any given time. It's rare to see her not smiling or laughing, but if you do, just bring her a cupcake and it will cheer her up.

Promise Me This is her first novel and is a story that weaseled its way into her heart and wouldn't leave her alone until she typed it up on the computer. She already is hard at work on ideas for her next book and hopes that the
characters never stop coming to her. Her huge imagination was always in overdrive as a child and now she is beyond excited to put it to good use as an adult. She plans to write as long as she has stories that need to be told.



Chrissy's review:
All together this was a great book. I loved the story itself. There was emotion and heartache and it kept me guessing what  was going to happen next. Charlie accepts a bet to stay the summer in California from her deceased twin brother's best friend, Jhett, against her mothers wishes. She eventually falls in love with Jhett and things just kind of take off from there. This book is filled with a great plot full if deceit, lies, trauma and crazy whacked out sisters. I'm giving this book 3 and a half stars because I truly loved the entire storyline but we all know that I'm a perv and I feel like I could have connected so much more with the characters if it was more emotion filled and in depth in the areas of sex that were kind of skimmed over without much detail. 

Wendy's review:
If you love a classically sweet romance with a bit of heartache, this is the book for you! 
Charlie (Charlotte) goes to California to pack up her deceased brother Cameron's things and get them back home to Tennessee. After finding a note in his belongings, she starts to wonder if there wasn't someone special in Cam's life. With a conversation to her best friend, she's pushed into the club scene. It's there that she meets Jhett. Going against her mother for the first time, Charlie finds herself engaging in bets, first times, and in love. 
I enjoyed reading this book, I think I had a smile on my face the majority of the way through it. There were times I wanted to cry because I could feel Charlie's loss but the author had a way of throwing in some humor around those memories which I was happy in the end for. The times where Jhett and Charlie were having a "moment" I could have used some more passion, but lets face it, I like me some dirrrty sex, so for this book, the lack of in-depth scenes weren't much of a problem.
Promise Me This is a sweet story about loosening up and setting yourself free. 
3.5-3.75 Stars!!!
