Keeping Promise Rock: Book Four

Crick has been home from Iraq for five years, Jeff and Collin are finally married, and Shane and Mikhail are quietly making lives better for the dispossessed teenagers who come their way. Everything is right in Deacon's world, but nothing ever stays the same.

When Deacon's best friends, Jon and Amy, answer the call of an opportunity in Washington, DC, Deacon figures that’s life. You love people, and they leave you, and you survive. Even Benny, Crick’s little sister, is close to grown and ready to start her own future. But Benny loves Deacon, and she owes him—she may move beyond The Pulpit and Levee Oaks one day, but not without leaving something of herself behind. And so she offers Deacon and Crick an amazing gift… and a terrifying decision.

Benny’s offer forces Deacon and Crick to dredge up every past mistake and offer of redemption. And not just the two of them—everybody is forced to examine the chances they've been given and the promises they've made. In a real family, a child is a promise, and to the men and women of Promise Rock, keeping that promise will change their lives forever.

The conclusion to a lovely, engaging and well-written series.  I am very sorry to say goodbye to these wonderfully intriguing characters and all their stories; however, I will put them on my to-be-read-again shelf and plan to visit them again in the future. I will also be buying more books from this author!

3.5 stars ~Reviewed by ANNA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Keeping Promise Rock by Amy Lane is probably one of my favorite M/M books ever. It was one of the first ones I’ve tried and Deacon and Crick still remain as top favorites in this genre. I had quite high expectations so I feel a little conflicted about my thoughts and feelings on this book. FOREVER PROMISES takes place a couple years after we’ve seen our guys. The entire book is written from different POVs so you get a chance to visit all your favorites. That being said, there are quite a lot of ongoing threads to this storyline. It kind of reminds me of J.R. Ward’s writing style in the BDB books where we get alternating POVs from core characters. The one thing I think that caused a problem for me about this was that it often felt convoluted. There was one particular plot line that I was interested in but felt that it was often drowned or overshadowed by the others. Without revealing any spoilers, the one plot line I was interested in was fascinating to me, but it also felt a little clichéd. I felt like it was “just another one of those books”. We see it happen in M/M all the time. It’s a natural desire and the obvious next development to a relationship, but I just didn’t think it held something particularly special. If it didn’t involve two of my favorite characters, I probably would not have cared so much, I don’t think. Lane has a unique sense of humor that she likes to incorporate into her novels. They make the characters feel so much more real and HUMAN. The emotions that they experience feel so genuine and I think that’s a big reason why readers are so drawn to her work. I am consumed with bittersweet feelings about all this. I still don’t think I have grasped everything even as I write this review. All I know is that if you haven’t read this series, then I think it’s worth the shot. You won’t find more multifaceted characters elsewhere other than in a Lane book.
