After kissing so many frogs, Holly starts to wonder if Prince Charming even exists.
Jase Bentley is worn out. As lead singer of the award winning rock band, Bent, Jase has everything he could possibly ever want at his fingertips. When you’re on top, the music industry moves everything within arm’s reach; money, fame, and women just ripe for the plucking. Everything except for the one thing he’s really looking for. The one dream he can’t seem to make come true.
What happens when two people from different worlds meet and are thrust into unfamiliar and unsettling territory? Can Holly navigate the demands of dating someone with a high profile profession? Can Jase walk away from the only lifestyle he’s ever known for the first woman who’s ever made him want to?
Promises are made, but can they keep them?
Promise me is a novella in the Rivers Edge series. This is Holly’s (Avery’s Best Friend) story.
Jase isn’t your typical rebel without a cause manwhore rockstar that we are so used to reading. No, Jase is tired of the Rockstar lifestyle and is looking to quit and settle down with a nice girl and eventually have a family. Then he sets his eyes on Holly waiting in the VIP line.
Holly never thought she would meet the love of her life at a concert, especially being that man in question is the lead singer. After a half an hour conversation Holly leaves Jase with her number and their picture. A months worth of text messages and phone calls isn’t enough for Jase, which leads to him showing up on her doorstep.
This novel isn’t all picnics and roses though, Jase has a supermodel ex girlfriend that is hell bent on ruining Jase’s public image after he refuses to answer her calls. Holly is soon dragged into the mix, it’s up to her whether or not she can handle the rockstar lifestyle or not.
I enjoyed the fresh look on the rockstar genre and how caring and compassionate Jase was. I really did love this novel and the way it ended, but selfishly i wanted more!!! I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to these two yet.
