Publisher's Summary

Jared Thomas has lived his whole life in the small mountain town of Coda, Colorado. He can't imagine living anywhere else. Unfortunately, the only other gay man in town is twice his age and used to be his teacher, so Jared is resigned to spending his life alone... until Matt Richards walks into his life, that is. Matt has just been hired by the Coda Police Department, and he and Jared immediately become friends. Matt claims he is straight, but for Jared, having a sexy friend like Matt is way too tempting. Facing Matt’s affair with a local woman, his disapproving family, and harassment from Matt’s co-workers, Jared fears they'll never find a way to be together—if he can even convince Matt to try. (Meet Matt and Jared again in the audiobook A to Z.)

I don't regret my purchase

Any additional comments?

It was a good book. A solid 4 stars. I wasn't on the edge of my seat in anticipation but I was curious enough in how the plot would play out. The dynamic between the two was interesting enough, if not predictable.

Sweet story but TERRIBLE narration!

What would have made Promises better?

A better narrator. Very honestly, he ruined the entire book for me.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I didn't make it to the end of the book before I lost interest and started a different story.

What didn’t you like about Mark L. Jones’s performance?

No emotion! It sounded like this was the first time he had ever read the book. He was monotone and just terrible.

What character would you cut from Promises?

All charaters were fine - wouldn't cut any.

Any additional comments?

It is too bad that there wasn't a better narrator. A good narrator could have made this simple, sweet story MUCH more enjoyable and worth the money. Save your money and read the book to yourself.

Cute and heart warming,shame about the narration.

Another sweet slow burn of a romance by Marie Sexton. Although some of the secondary characters are a little one dimensional, the story is witty and emotionally sophisticated enough to carry it off. The main characters are charming, their actions and responses to coming out and each other are well written, this book is definitely worth reading. Did you notice how I said read not listen to, thats because the narrator has a weird cadence to his voice at times, his tone would go up when it should have gone down and vise versa.
