Romance Book Review: A Promise Kept

Author: Stormy Glenn
Series Connection: Loosely connected to Mr. Wonderful, but a stand alone book
ISBN: 978-1-60370-652
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ M/M


For years Mason has been in love with Jack, but he thought that Jack was straight so he never did anything about it. After 10 years Mason thinks its time to get on with his life and forget about any fantasies he might have about Jack. Mason decides to finish up his schooling across the country and leave town.

Jack never realized that Mason didn't know he was gay. He has been attracted to Mason for years, but promised his best friend, Mason's brother Randy, that he would not do anything about his attraction. When Mason tells Jack he's gay, Jack is shocked and realizes he never really knew anything about the younger man. After hearing the news Jack goes out and gets drunk and has the bartender call Mason to come and get him. The two men spend the night together, but when Jack wakes up he can't remember anything except his promise to Randy and says some terrible things to Mason. Mason leaves town earlier than expected and but returns shortly after.

While Jack and Mason make their way toward each other with a little help from Mason's new friends and his family, another man has taken a liking to Mason. Mason doesn't know the man who tries to pick him up from the dance floor, but he immediately knows he wants nothing to do with him. This stranger has other ideas, putting Mason, Jack and everyone Mason loves in danger.

I loved the lead characters in this story. They are both strongly defined and well developed. Part of the books charm however was the secondary characters, which I'm hoping will have their own books in the near future. While ten years seems an unrealistically long time to wait, I think the author presented her story so well that it made Jack and Mason's love seem all that much stronger. This is definitely an erotic romance so be ready to have it knock your socks off in that department.

Book Description:
Mason is in love with his brother's best friend, Jack. It's been ten years of secret fantasies, hidden glances, and forbidden yearnings. Just when Mason decides to give up on Jack and move away, his friends step in to get them together.
But new love is not always easy. Especially when a serial killer has his sights set on Mason being his next victim and he'll destroy anyone who gets in his way.

About the author from her Website:
I believes the only thing sexier than a man in cowboy boots is two, or three men in cowboy boots. I also believes in love at first sight, soul mates, true love, and happy endings.

After 25 years of bankrupting the family with my reading obsession, I decided to try my hand at writing my own novels. It still amazes me to this day that people are actually interested in the stuff that comes out of my imagination. It can be a real mess up there.
I live in the great Northwest region of the USA, with my gorgeous husband and soul mate, six very active teenagers, two boxer/collie puppies, two old biddy cats, and three fish. When I'm not being a mother to my six teenagers or cleaning up after my two 70 pound lap puppies, you can usually find me cuddled in bed with a book in my hand and a puppy in my lap. Or on my laptop, creating the next sexy man for one of my stories.
