Seth is back.
When he walked back into my life, it almost felt like the pieces of my broken heart could be fixed. I thought we could go back to being best friends, but then I started to feel what I had been blocking out for years. I tried. Boy, did I try! But once I started to let him in, I wanted nothing more than to cross that line from friendship into something more…
Just when I think I can move on and let myself be happy, an ugly reminder from my past comes storming in and threatens to destroy the sliver of hope that's been growing since Seth came back.
Do I even deserve to be loved?
“I’m not asking to fix your heart. I’m not asking to mend you. I love each and every shattered piece of you. I’m asking that you let me love you. Let me love each piece of your broken heart, and I swear to you I will make up for every heartache you have ever experienced.”
I came back for Josie.
I knew I'd have to fight for her, but with the loss of her dad and the truth about what happened with her and Blake, I quickly realized that making her mine was going to be a lot harder than I first thought. The problem is, I can’t pretend like she’s just my best friend. I can’t pretend I don’t want more.
I'm willing to do anything to get her to admit she has the same passionate feelings for me, because I know once she opens up and stops lying to herself, I can show her what it really means to be loved. It's a battle of wills, but my love for her is stronger than her will to stop me.
So I fight for her. I fight because I know she deserves it.
**This is book two in the Promises, Promises series, and book one should be read before you read this one. Also, this book is for mature readers (17+), so if you do not like getting turned on or reading hot steamy scenes, this book is NOT for you!**
Review by LORENA
I have to say that these love stories really drive me crazy. The good kind of crazy. There is something that attracts me to these types of stories and they captivate me. I love how the stories evolve and how best of friends become more than just friends -- how their love blossoms and how things or people always seem to get in the way of their happiness and they have to fight mighty hard to be happy.
I felt like I was on a roller coaster reading this book because of all the highs and lows and all the good and bad that came out of this book. Josie has really suffered quite a bit and the thing with her is that she was so confused from time to time. She didn't know if she loved Blake or if she loved Seth. I'll tell you, I've always been on #teamSeth since book one. Something about him captivated me and I just couldn't seem to be on #teamBlake. He always felt like a lying jacka$$. But Josie came around and realized that even though she did fall in love with Blake, her heart always belonged to Seth -- no matter what.
Now Seth had my heart from the beginning. He was the sweetest most gentle guy and for a hot guy with all those tattoo's and piercings, you would think he would be a badass with some attitude problem or something, but nope, he was the most amazing guy ever. I did the happy dance when he came back in this second book and was going to do his damndest to win Josie back and boy did he win her back.
The sex in this series has been unbelievable, hot, hot, hot!! Especially in this second book. I don't understand how people have been complaining that the sex is just too much. If the author knows how to word it and explain it -- then too much sex is not enough sex! I loved every single sex scene from this book and the chemistry between Josie and Seth was just like explosive fireworks!!
I'm happy that they were able to overcome all the bad and even though Josie still has nightmares about what she went through when she was young, Seth has been there for her and has helped her heal little by little, but when it's not one thing it's another that comes back to haunt Josie.
The supporting characters in this book were amazing as well. Brandon might have been Blake's brother but Seth was Brandon's best friend and he watched out for those who he loved. Brandon and Brooke have been amazing and so has Seth's parents along with Josie's dad.
I love everything about this series and I can't wait to get my hands on the third book. I absolutely have to find out what happens next!!! So exciting :)
Loved this series and I totally recommend it. I wouldn't base myself on the mediocre reviews or bad because them people just don't know what they're talking about. This has been a tremendously great journey for Seth and Josie and I want to continue reading this roller coaster of a series!!
