The Promise Of Us
They couldn’t be more different…or more completely perfect for each other.
Claire McKenna knows about loss. The bullet wound that ended her promising professional tennis career drove her to make a quiet life for herself working with fabric samples, chatting with her book group, and spending time with her parents in her sleepy coastal Connecticut hometown. Then there was the boyfriend who dumped her to pursue her adventurous childhood friend. Now, Claire’s business has hit a financial snag, but she’s up to the challenge. After all, she can survive anything. At least she thinks so…until her teen crush, Logan, returns to town with his sister, Claire’s traitorous friend.
Photographer Logan Prescott is more playboy than homebody. But his sister’s illness teaches him that there’s more to life than chasing the next thrill. Bent on helping her win Claire’s forgiveness, he turns his charm on Claire and offers her big bucks to renovate his multimillion-dollar New York City condo.
After years of playing it safe, Claire must now take some risks. The payoff could be huge, but if it all falls apart, can her heart recover from another loss?
WOW!!! This story definitely has all the feels!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Claire and Logan’s story in The Promise of Us by the talented Jamie Beck, book two in her Sanctuary Sound series. An opposites attract love story that looks at the struggles and fears a person surviving a brutal and senseless attack by a gunman endures as well as being able to forgive a friend, now recovering from cancer, for earlier digressions that hurt you badly. Ms. Beck tackled difficult topics with sensitivity and this incredible story tugged at my heartstrings and emotions and is one of my top reads this year. Claire and Logan discovered way more about themselves as they connect and challenge each other. For Claire this is a dream come true, having always crushed on Logan despite Logan pushing his own agenda. Logan wanted Claire to forgive his sister as well as overcome the fears that keep her from living a full life. A life Claire once dreamed of having. Logan discovered how lonely his life truly was as well as the cravings he had for a real home and to be loved.
Ms. Beck writes to the soul; the soul of her characters as well as the readers. This wonderful and amazing tale was emotional, and moving, filled with sexual chemistry, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters that is must read. I totally loved these characters and didn’t want to put this book down. I highly recommend The Promise of Us to other readers and look forward to Ms. Beck’s next book in this series.
