Summary

Sabrina Chandler has been unlucky in love: 10 years ago, just before her high school graduation, she was shockingly betrayed by her boyfriend and her so-called best friend.

That dark day, a mysterious bad boy, Tyler Anderson, came to her defense. He made her promise to leave their hometown, told her she deserved so much more — things that he could not give her.

Now, Sabrina reluctantly heads to her high school reunion, hoping to confront her betrayers — and, just maybe, to meet Tyler again.

Can Sabrina find the courage to face her demons, let go of the pain, and move forward into happiness? Or will insecurity and self-doubt ruin her chance to get the love she’s not sure she even deserves?

The most annoying heroine ever!

Seriously? 10yrs you let a little idiot run your life. I got fed up of her insecurities and lack of backbone about 25% in.

Great Narration- Great Story-!! <3

Any additional comments?

Ok I first have to say is that I love Kate Rudd, she’s the narrator on this book, and her voice is just perfect. I’ve listened to her a few times, and her voice was the perfect voice for the characters she played in Promise Me.

Promise Me was about heartbreak,new kindled love. Barbie delivered every emotion to this book. I even laughed a ton i- with the help of the voice from the narrator you felt everything.

Lets start with the Prologue- WOW- caught my attention right away. Sabrina a young high school girl finds her boyfriend and her best friend hooking up. That’s when she meets Tyler Anderson. The Bad boy. He finds her while she watches her boyfriend cheat, and comforts her in a way her own boyfriend couldn’t comfort her. He makes her make a promise that she would leave the both of them and move on…. That was 10 years ago!

Fast Forward……Sabrina Chandler- 28 year old who lives in Miami with her crazy protective BFF Julia. First…. her roommate is to die for, she is hysterical, and she is totally what a Best friend should act like. Anyways…. Sabrina and Julia are in Miami, Sabrina works for a art museum. Sabrina gets mail asking her to come back to there hometown for a high school reunion.

After facing the ex-boyfriend and now the ex best friend , ohh yeah forgot to mention they got married with 2.5 kids! Ok, so she faces the challenges with them but really the only reason why she came back was to see Tyler. Ok.. Tyler was all sorts of good stuff. He’s restaurant owner, good looking and tatted. Nice right? Well… She see’s him at the reunion, and its almost like they never left each other. I loved how Sabrina grew with the story and never put up with Tyler’s bull crap. She gave him a run for his money, and in the end you fell in love with both characters. Since this is an audio review- I’m telling you will love it. With a set of earphones on and laughing out loud to the story, I fell in love with Barbies writing. And guess what!!! There is going to be a book #2 in the Finding Forever series. Thats right its Julia’s story!!! Ga…. I’m soooo excited to here what happens with Julia and Alex- ohh yea Alex, forgot mention him. Alex is Sabrina’s boss in Miami… The one who wanted to hook with her…but in the end we like Alex!!! If your not into audio, than pick up this book quick great read/ great audio/ great author.!!!!

Every time I hear or see you cry it kills me just a little bit more because I know it’s me who’s to blame for it. I know I’ll never be good enough for you… I knew it back then, and I f***ing know it for sure now. I know I don’t have any right to ask, but if you give me another chance, I swear I will spend the rest of my life trying to put that beautiful smile back on your face. Because what I came here to tell you is that I need you… I need you like I need the f***ing air to breathe.”

“Because wherever you are, is where I want to be. You can take all the time you need to think, but I’m not giving up. You and I… we belong together and I’ll wait for however long it takes because I love you.”

“No, you don’t get it at all. I wish you would have told me sooner because I miss you like crazy and I’m dying to see your beautiful face again. Don’t get any crazy ideas in that pretty little head of yours, I told you I’d wait and I’ve been doing nothing but waiting… and I’ll wait even longer if you needed me to.”

A Diamond in the Ruff!

Would you consider the audio edition of Promise Me to be better than the print version?

Kate Rudd does a fantastic job narrating this book. I only listened to the audio version and found it to be rather satisfying!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed all the characters but I gotta say..I love Sabrina's BFF Julie, and Alex as well!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I love this type of book as well as the dilemma between the two main characters! Barbie has a great talent for storytelling and I look forward to reading more from this author! She will now be on my auto purchase list!
Many romance novels are rather...cheesy because of male leads that are too perfect as well as the storyline that lacks. This story is a perfect 5 star and I've only given Diana Gabaldon, Jamie McGuire, and SC Stephens 5 stars!!

Any additional comments?

If you love angst and a well written story, this is your book!

Hooked from page one!!!

Loved Sabrina and Tyler's story!
Sabrina has a tormented past and it has taken a long time to finally face her demons. However, there was someone there in her shadow to make sure she was alright, and it's the thought of that person who makes it hard for her to have a relationship with someone who is not him. When her very hot boss, Alex lets her know he's interested, she just can't seem to forget about the man she thought of as her guardian angel. Then, the time comes for her to face her past - her 10 year high school reunion. Sabrina makes it through tough as nails and finally puts people in their places. Then she sees him...... Tyler, the man who consumes her dreams!
Tyler was known as the town's bad boy, always getting into trouble, but the night Sabrina's heart is crushed, he is the one that takes care of her. At that point, he knows the timing isn't right for their chance. Fast forward ten years and he is there to claim what's his! As Sabrina and Tyler embark on their own little reunion, their bond and passion ignites and both are left with their hearts forever connected.
However, Tyler is one hell of a sexy man and his past encounters can't seem to let him go, causing big problems, where hearts are broken and trust is shattered. After the truth comes to light, Tyler is determined and not giving up. He knows Sabrina is the only one for him and even though he broke her heart he is willing to do anything in his power to fight for her. With a little help from Sabrina's friends, they make her see that her love with Tyler is not something to toss away.
Sabrina and Tyler's story will make you laugh, cry, and fill your heart. I would love to see a follow up book for them!

Just OK for me

What would have made Promise Me better?

Kate Rudd is really hit or miss as a narrator for me. I liked her narration of this book, but I didn't love it.

What was most disappointing about Barbie Bohrman’s story?

The story was so typical for this new adult genre. The lack of good communication to clarify assumptions could have simply resolved so much. But then there wouldn' have been any angst. I understand that...I just didn't have any patience for it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Rudd?

Kate wasn't bad. I think I had difficulty with the overall story, not the narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Forgiveness and trust was a nice redeeming message in this book.

A second Chance

Was there that one guy in high school that you wish there had been more with but it never happened. To perchance get that one opportunity, and it seems like more than you could dream. To trust, to love, and find hurt again. I really loved this book, besides that the narrator was really good the story is just so emotional, and almost could be what happened in high school and you wish you'd had that one chance 10 years later. A really good read, you laugh, you cry, you want to strangle your best friend then kiss her for knowing you better than yourself and you fall in love. A book that is well rounded in the end.

what a sweet story

This is the book romance novels are made of. It is (my opinion) about soulmates being together and one has to forgive the other. Hands down, kept me entertained.

The Narrator is Wonderful

Kate Rudd is a fantastic narrator and actually "made" this listen for me. There were times when I wasn't happy where the book was going, but I persevered because Ms. Rudd was so enjoyable to listen to and is actually part of the reason I bought the book. As far as the story, it was good but does involve the dreaded cheating thing that lots of people have problems with, so that's just a heads up. I did enjoy all of the characters, even if at least four of them needed a swift kick in the pants! So yes, four stars!

Cute, as expected

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would of chosen a different storyline although it is still a good story.

What other book might you compare Promise Me to and why?

Any of your typical love stories.

What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings light to the character

Was Promise Me worth the listening time?

yes.
