About the book

Mackenzie Hart has made a career out of writing about eternal love, so when she finds her perfect match in Hunter Kane, she decides to put it all on the line. Irresistibly charming and drenched in alpha-male swagger, Hunter isn’t just the catch of the town—he’s Mackenzie’s best friend. Only someone beats her to the altar. After a fresh start and three years to recover, the last thing Mackenzie expects is for her old life to come knocking…

Recently divorced, musician Hunter Kane wants to reconnect with the woman he left behind. Admitting his biggest mistake comes first. What comes next is up to Mackenzie. He hopes she’ll give him a second chance. He may have been the one to break her heart, but he knows he can also be the one to mend it.

As a tenuous friendship turns into something more, Hunter’s life on the road beckons once again. Will love be enough to keep them together, or will their wildly different worlds be too much for them to overcome?

My Thoughts

I have a short list of authors who no matter what they publish I pick their books up without even having to read the blurb because they are just that good. Marina Adair is on that list and Promise Me You didn’t disappoint.

My heart broke for Mackenzie having to watch the guy she loved go marry someone else and then to have to face the trials life throws at her on top of that to boot. I don’t want to spoil what happens to her but I really admire her strength and that she still goes on to have a very successful career. I do have to admit I had a harder time with Hunter’s character and he was the main reason I gave this one a 4 instead of 5 stars. His character is portrayed as pretty self-centered and even after his divorce and his meeting Mackenzie once again I felt like he didn’t have much character growth. While you can’t deny he loved Mackenzie I felt like often his own desires and needs came first to him even if it was couched in terms of him wanting to help Mackenzie. Despite that I did enjoy watching the journey of Mackenzie and Hunter getting to know each other again. Marina Adair just has a way of tugging at your heartstrings and falling in love with the community she builds.
