Blog Tour: Promise Me This by Christina Lee with Review and Giveaway

Book Info:
A new love will test the boundaries of passion between a privileged boy next door and the tattooed, blue-haired girl who helps him embrace his wild side...

Nate has developed quite a playboy reputation around campus. It's not that he doesn't respect or trust women; he doesn't trust himself. The men in Nate’s family are prone to abusive behavior—a dirty secret that Nate’s been running from his entire life—so Nate doesn't do relationships. But he can’t help himself around one girl…

Jessie is strong, independent, and works at a tattoo parlor. Nate can’t resist getting close to her, even if it’s strictly a friendship. But it doesn't take long for Nate to admit that what he wants with Jessie is more than just friendly.

With Jessie, he can be himself and explore what he’s always felt was a terrifying darkness inside him. Even when Nate begins to crave her in a way that both shocks and horrifies him, Jessie still wants to know every part of him. Testing their boundaries together will take a trust that could render them inseparable… or tear them apart.

My Thoughts:  I have thoroughly enjoyed ever book in the Between Breaths Series by Christina Lee and have been looking forward to Promise Me This, which is Nate and Jessie's story.  We have met both of these characters briefly in previous novels, and while this is a series, each novel is a companion novel and can easily be read as a standalone, though you won't want to miss any of them.  Nate and Jessie fit the old cliche "opposites attract" perfectly.  They couldn't seem anymore different.  She's tattooed with blue in her hair and he's a clean-cut, well-dressed, jock-type.  They've always been friends, but something begins to change and their relationship takes a different turn.  Nate only does hookups, one night stands, mainly because of issues resulting from a dysfunctional family....or what he believes is his dark side.   What he doesn't get is that Jessie likes all of him, including the dark side.  She just gets him.  She doesn't do hookups, but she can't stop thinking about Nate.  He helps her with a project for school, and she helps him through some really tough issues, and the process by which they do this is a wonderfully written and addictive story you won't want to put down.

I really enjoyed getting to know both Nate and Jessie, and loved the romance between them.  I also enjoyed getting to see glimpses of previous characters from the other novels in the series.  Once again, Christina Lee has provided her readers and fans of this series with another outstanding novel that will make you swoon, sigh, fan you face, and smile.  Contemporary romance fans, this is one you won't want to miss.

 Author Bio:

  1. I love that the girl is the "bad boy" of the story! We need more like this in NA!

  2. I enjoyed this one too Ellen, the characters were great & I agree that these two certainly fit into the 'opposites attract' category.

    A great review!


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing from you!
