Baylor Jones and Stayton (State) Blake.
Two lost souls raised on the streets. Young children vowing to always protect each other. He was only nine but he was her protector and best friend for years.
Even when thrown in foster care he took care of her always like a king to his queen. A silent pinky promise shared between, it was their secret protection to one another.
Then one morning he was gone. Leaving Baylor on her own to battle the streets and more importantly life in the Kings all by herself.
"I will love you, even if I never see you again."

It'll Pull On Your Heartstrings
H.J. Bella delivers a touching, heartwarming story that will make you both smile, and make your heartache. Due to personal experience my heart really goes out to both foster kids and parents. State (H) and Baylor (h) find themselves in foster care, and while they promised to be there for each other, they ended up being separated when State is adopted. Years later, fate has them crossing paths again, but State never really gave up on looking for Baylor, or moved on. He wants to pick up where they left off, and be there for Baylor; however, due to her past Baylor has issues with abandonment and trust.
The secondary characters were great, and really added to the overall plot. Pinky Promise is a sweet story, with some mild passion, heat, and angst.
The narration was great! I received this audio from the publisher for an honest review.

This book was much more heart felt and sweet than the other HJ Bellus books I have read. I really enjoyed seeing the softer side of HJ and getting this whole new emotional connection to her book.
The story is of 2 orphans who were separated and then reunited, one living a home life with a mom and dad and one living through foster care.
State, Baylor, Rowe and Miss Tami will hold a special place in my heart forever. The stand up character of State as he lives his dreams but not to the detriment of love. The strong willed and damaged Baylor that found family isn't always with a mom and dad. Sweet Rowe and her tenacity despite deplorable actions. And the matriarch of this clan, Miss Tami with her ability to roll with the times and help everyone she comes into contact with. All 4 of these characters made for one amazing story.
I listened to this book on audio and Veronica Pace can do no wrong. She managed to read a football player, an emotionally wounded woman, a child with Down's syndrome and an elderly woman to perfection. Her narration skills are truly remarkable. I wasn't the biggest fan of the male narration but he only had one chapter, so it was tolerable.
This book is definitely worth a read or a listen.
