Nora Roberts look out...MaryEllen Brady has written a real page turner. I just finished reading this book but please don't tell anyone; it's our little secret. I've always been told that guys don't read romances. Whoever said that was wrong. I like other genres, don't get me wrong, but when I saw this book I just had to give it a shot. And I'm sure glad I did.
'A Promise of Forever', what a fantastic title. To me, this book has everything in it that a good romance could have-of course there is sex, but it's not raw and it's done tastefully; all the human emotions are there as well-there's love and lust, anger, extreme happiness, heaps of jealousy for sure, the bonds of friendship (the for life kind), the love of family. It's all there. I don't know if being stubborn is a human emotion but that's in there too; after all, aren't we all a bit stubborn at times. Everyone can relate to this book in some form or fashion; I know I did.
I won't tell you the story line because I don't believe in ruining that for any reader. But I would encourage you to read this book; it's really very well-written. I'll let you in on another little secret. I recently met the author and I think she's a wonderful lady; she's genuine and kind-hearted and her personality is reflected in her writing; that's another thing that makes this such a great book. And the editing is just fantastic. I'm a stickler when it comes to the English language and believe me, I looked and I couldn't find any mistakes.
I hear through the grapevine that she's in the process of writing two more books. And if they're anything like 'A Promise of Forever', I'm afraid I'm going to have to read those as well. And I'll probably write another review but whatever you do, don't tell anyone I read these books. If the guys find out, I'll never live it down. Do yourself a favor, relax with a cool drink and read MaryEllen's book today. You`ll be glad you did.
