Publications Date: December 10, 2013
This book is book one in a three part series, so not all matters are resolved at the end of the novel. It is also meant for ages 18+ due to yummy adult content
Happily ever after doesn’t exist. Not just in the romantic sense, but in the sense that there will never be a point in life that will contain no more obstacles.
Josie Sommers is a nerdy twenty four year old, elementary school teacher who has always considered herself a strong person. But with the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break.
When he betrayed her in the ultimate way, she never thought she would let him back into her life, let alone open herself up to falling back in love with him.
Plagued with resentment and the burden of her own dishonesty, Josie has to decide if forgiving and coming clean is worth the risk of losing him again. With so many hurdles, we know that Josie’s story is no fairytale.
That’s a promise.
“You are gorgeous, as always, Josie.” He turned me around and brought his lips to mine. He kissed me slowly, and I could feel myself getting heated. He grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the bed. I was a little embarrassed when he started undressing us, unable to believe that I agreed to do something so risqué. He position me in a particular way, and went back to his cameras to make sure his shot was right and to set up timers on them.
“Okay, don’t think about the cameras,” he said, coming back to me. He started sucking on my neck as his hands roamed my thighs, stomach, and then my chest. I tried to ignore the cameras and focused on his tongue and mouth on me.
He brought one of my breasts into his mouth and sucked on my hard nipple. His tongue always knew how to make my body feel good. Click. I moved my hands into his shaggy sandy blonde hair, and arched my back, needing more of him. Click. Seth aligned his chest with mine, and went back to assault my neck as I moved my hands to rub his shoulders and arms. Click. His other hand that wasn’t fondling my breast, moved its way in between my legs, and rubbed me. I gasped at the feeling of increased pressure on my clit. Click.
His fingers really were magical. It didn’t take me long before both the pressure of his mouth on my neck and breasts and the rubbing of his fingers against me, made me come. Click.
“So sexy,” he whispered, before putting on the condom he had ready on the bed. His eyes were hooded with desire. He positioned himself in front of me and moved my long hair in a way that covered my breasts. Click. He eased inside of me gently, and then pulled back out fast. Click. He teased me like that for a while, as I whimpered with need. I decided to sit up and grab onto his back, nearly clawing him to finally give me what I needed. I started to raise my hips to his at a better rhythm, loving the small whimper that came out of his mouth.
~*~*~*~OUR LOVELY EHN’S ( ALSO KNOWN AS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKZ) REVIEW~*~*~*~
“Life is all about CHOICES.”
Thank you for the advance reader copy of That’s A Promise, this is the 1st book of Ms.Victoria Klahr. I love to discover new authors and their works because they bring new excitement to the readers.
The story is about Josie Sommers who loves to read and study so she is like a nerdy heroine. She has a very strong personality and a little hot tempered a good friend and a daughter. Seems life for her is perfect, but destiny has a different plan for her. With the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break…
The story tackles a very sensitive subject that most women experience nowadays, the scar that it will leave is not just on the outside but on the inside, it will crush you and your soul. But Josie is strong enough to surpass the obstacle with the help of her parents, her best friend Seth, and the love of her life, Blake.
Blake for me is the good guy, easily to fall in love with but I love Seth more he is mysterious, much appealing persona, tough on the outside soft in the inside. And on the other hand you will love and hate Josie’s character because of the choices she made, but it makes her more human because the emotions are raw and authentic.
The story is well written, just some typo errors on the names. The challenge for me is the past and present scenarios I’m not really a fan of it. Maybe it would be better if the story is narrated from the past going to the present instead of bouncing back and forth so the story will flow smoothly. And it is very predictable I knew from the start what Blake’s secret hold is. But I enjoy reading the story; it shows the reality of life. The essence of loving someone and the importance of acceptance. Sometimes the choices that we made will ruin or save us. And real life situation is not a fairytale.
I’m TEAM SETH by the way if you are curious why, add this to your TBR list (^o^)
Congrats on your 1st book! Kudos!
