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?

Promise Me This...listen to this book!
Would you consider the audio edition of Promise Me This to be better than the print version?
I read the print version of this book when it first came out and I completely fell in love with the characters. Listening to the audiobook brought those characters to life for me and I feel the narrator did a great job representing the characters in the way they were portrayed.
What did you like best about this story?
The characters are true to life, not overly perfect and the story was not drawn out to add conflict. It was well-written and well-voiced.
What does Becca Ballenger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator really brings out the characters personalities and illuminates the authors creation by bringing them to life as though you're watching the story portrayed in a movie.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Life's about taking chances.
Any additional comments?
I truly enjoyed the audiobook version of this book. As someone who already loved the characters and story, I was not disappointed in the way the narrator relayed the story. Great job to both the author and narrator! This story is well worth a listen!
