Synopsis 


Charlie Jennings and Jhett Hudson knew that a single moment could change everything.



It took them one song to find each other, one question to give them a chance, one kiss to fall in love, and one night to almost lose it all. But they had one thing other couples lack—pure, unconditional love—and that takes more than a moment to walk away from.


Falling in love is only the beginning. Forever is what happens next.




My Review




Ahhh…Charlie and Jhett…what can I say?


I absolutely love them and I am so sad to see their story end. Promise Me This was a story that stuck with me for long after I finished it and I could not wait for this second book.

Charlie and Jhett have such an amazingly beautiful romance and I was left heartbroken and honestly, a little crazy at the end of Promise Me This. All I could picture was Charlie knocking at the door and having Jhett answer. I was driving myself crazy with wondering what his reaction was going to be. I knew (or figured) these two would have a happily ever after but after everything they had gone through I just didn’t know what it would take for them to get there.


Sarah Ashley Jones does not disappoint. The emotion that this book is written with is so real. I literally felt like I was there, standing looking around the house and all the crazy feelings Charlie was feeling…I felt like I could feel them too.

This is a novella, which I was a little sad about but that’s just because I loved their story so much and would have liked more of them. But it is a perfect ending to their story. I would much rather have this as a short story then a story with a bunch of crap thrown in there just to make it longer.

This isn’t a book that is written for sexy scenes or immature drama. This is a real story with characters with real issues. It’s about overcoming your past and breaking free to be the person you were born to be. It’s about learning to let go of those you no longer have and moving on to those who are made for you. 

 
Charlie and Jhett’s story is not only beautiful but emotional and different. It’s not your typical setting and some of the characters are a bit different…maybe a little quirky?? I don’t know…but I absolutely loved them all. My only regret was not reading Promise Me This again before I started this. You most definitely want to read book one before you read Promise Me Forever.

Thank you Sarah Ashley Jones for sharing such a breathtaking story with us. And thank you for such beautiful covers. Simply stunning. I love that they are real. They actually look like they could be snapshots with real couples. Simple yet beautiful.

Synopsis: 

Welcome to the South—where the tea is sweet and the accents are sweeter. This Southern way of life is all Charlie has ever known. It’s not until she loses the only person who pushed her to break free of the Southern Belle mold that she starts living the life she needs and not the life her parents forced on her.
Jhett has lived on the edge for as long as he could remember - constantly teetering back and forth between being a rock star and living a normal life. His rebellious and sometimes arrogant attitude is known to get him into trouble, especially with the girls who hang on his every move.
Charlie never thought that a trip to pack up her brother’s apartment would leave her feeling even more unsettled about the grainy details of her brother’s death. Her quest for information leads her straight to his old hangout and into arms of Jhett, who suspiciously knows more about her situation than he ever should.
Only a few questions remain: Can you trust someone based on their word alone? And if you make a promise, how far will you go to keep it?
