Three Broken Promises by Monica Murphy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I started Three Broken Promises I was a little worried about liking it as much as the previous books in the series. I really loved Drew and Fable...especially Fable, I adored her, and I was worried that I wouldn't like Jenn quite as much, or that I would constantly be comparing them. But you can't do that. It's a different couple, with a totally different dynamic!
Right off I will say that as much as I love Colin...love his take charge, manhandling ways in the bedroom, and by the pool, and in the office...for about 80% of the book I wanted to smack him upside his head!! Dear Lord!! It should be illegal for him to be in his head so much, but I totally get it. He feels like he let Jenn's brother down in more ways than one, and he has to deal with that guilt. It actually made me love him all the more.
Jenn really wants to be self-sufficient, independent, and strong, but life seems determined to disrupt those plans. After she runs away from home, she makes some bad decisions, but seriously, can you blame her? After Colin rescues her, takes her home, and gives her a job, her past comes back to haunt her. She doesn't know what to think about her relationship with Colin, she's feeling trapped, so she decides to leave and strike it own on her own.
Through all their ups and downs, and through me going through the tissues, it takes a while, but they finally hear what they need to from each other. It took going through some scary moments for them to FINALLY say the words they both needed to say, but it totally works. Although, I was saying over and over while reading, the same five words.
Just. Ask. Her. To. Stay
