Promises Hurt (Promises #1) by Elle Brooks

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️22858478

I wasn’t planning on falling for Ethan Jamison, hell I wasn’t planning on our paths ever crossing. He’s the most popular guy at school and a complete player. Me; I’m the perpetual good girl, trying to carry out one last request. But when you make a promise, how far do you go to see it through?

It’s a running joke that I’m a terrible liar, if only people knew the truth. My whole life has been spent making excuses and deflecting questions. I was pretty good at it until Blair Thomas entered my world. She saw through the mask that everyone is so willing to accept. She makes me want to tell her all my secrets, but can she promise to keep them?

My Views:

“Can I keep you?” I smile as I let out a long exhale.
“Only forever.”
“Cross my heart,” I tell him as my eyelids drop and I let sleep claim me.

I really liked this book! I finished it in one sitting. I really enjoyed the characters and thought the story flowed well. I thought that Blair was a refreshing character. She was okay in how she dressed and how she was. I love that she never felt the need to change anything about herself. My poor Ethan, he has had a terrible life for a long time. He is a different person between his home life and school life. He was going through so much in his life and meeting Blair changed everything for him. THAT CLIFFHANGER!! The story ended at the worst time! I have to get my hands on the second book. Like yesterday.
