This is not your cookie-cutter childhood best friend love story.

We were best friends since as early as I could remember. We grew up together. We were next door neighbors. We shared each other's deepest secrets. When I was thirteen, we made a pact: if we were still single by the time we were 30, we'd marry each other.

Today was my thirtieth birthday. I was single. I knew he was single too.

But we were no longer best friends, and a part of me knew that he hated me.

This is book one of a three book series. Books two and three will be full-length novels.
Book Two: Promise to Keep
Book Three: Promise of Forever

New Adult Contemporary Romance **Mature Content** Recommended for 17+ due to mature language and adult situations.

I cannot believe i got talked into preordering 59 pages of a ridiculously far-fetched and incomplete story, thinking I was ordering an actual book. Man, I feel duped. I wont even touch the chracters because I could barely get through the first few pages of Chloe without absolutely loathing her.

Lets start with the fact its only 65 pages and you pay $3.00 bucks for it. That alone is a rip off. But add in the fact that the story is horrible and you really feel like you got tricked in to buying it. The story is awful. I felt nothing for the main character of this story. She was a hypocrite and a disgusting person. No character development and truthfully? Her actions made me dislike her and want to slap her. Awful book. Save your money.

Loved the story line but $2.99 for 80 pages is ridiculous!!!

I had been eyeing this book for a while, seemed like it could have a good story based on the description so i finally bought it. SO regret that decision. Not only is the main character not likeable at all (in present day- as a child she's ok), but her actions are terrible. And the "big twist" at the end makes it unlikely that the two would/should ever realistically end up together. Except I'm sure they eventually will, which is just so unrealistic its laughable. I will not be purchasing the second book as I have no interest in finding out what happens, and I'm usually not one to quit a book halfway through. I wouldn't waste your time or money!

Wow! This was a total rip off. This book should've been free. Really pissed I had to pay for this crap. This book was only 65 pages long and 31 of those pages (I counted) were back story of when the characters were young children. Very disappointing. There wasn't enough present day story development for me to want to buy the next one. Kinda afraid I'll get burned again. Fool me once.......

Totally not worth the money or the time wasted reading it. The purchase is $9 for the three books in the series and the combined number of pages in all the books is less than 270. Its a ridiculous amount of money. I am done buying book series like this one. I purchased all 3 books at once and was mad at myself at the end of the first book which is only 59 pages. The cliffhanger was so stupid. There are actually some things in life that are unredeemable. This author found it. The two characters had no business being friends after high school. They were awful to each other. Chloe was annoying and immature. I wouldn't recommend you waste your time or money. If all the readers would stop purchasing these mini series books, which I am doing, maybe the authors would put out complete novels that they spent enough time on to make a good story.

2.99 for not even a full 80 pages what a joke! Maybe you can release the entire story for 2.99 and not leave a cliff hanger after 65 pages. Save your money!

BAD. Heroine (not bloody likely) is horrible. Don't waste your time.

Cliffhanger, strange and wrong twist at the end, and mostly flashbacks. Horrible story. Got for free. And I am glad.

I can see why people say this series could of been one book. I won't be buying the rest of the series. Drama

I have some mixed feelings about this book, I liked some things but I disliked a few others, the narrative felt really fast, the chapters changed from one to the next, changing between present and past, which was good because they give us a sense of who these characters are and the things that they have lived through that have made them act like they do in the present. But let’s start from the beginning, the book is about two best friends, since hey were little they made a pact to marry each other by the time they turned 30, now that premise I really like, best friends falling in love, but in this book, something happens to these characters along the way that by the time they turn 30 they aren’t even on speaking terms. And this is where the time hops come into play, we see them as young kids, when they first met and how their lives progressed but the problem for me was that even though we get these glimpses into their past I never really connected with them in the present. Most of it is Chloe’s story but I never felt a connection to her, I think maybe it would have helped if we had a little more sense of how she is in the present, because from her past we can’t really now her because obviously something happened that changed her. I liked that the book was easy to read, it was fast and it did have some sweet moments with the two main characters growing up. I was somewhat ready to give up on this series but then I got to the end and I just can’t! Such a cliffhanger! I just have to know what happens next and hopefully we’ll get more of an insight into who these people really are.

Would have been a great story if it didn't end right in the middle. Sorry but 80 pages is not worth it even if its free because then I have to pay $4 for the next 6 books with 80 pages in those too! How dumb .

Thanks for all the reviews.  I was going to purchase this book until I read how horrible the book is.

Holy cow!!! What a way to end the first book in this series. Here I was wondering why Jax hated Chloe so much...now I completely understand. WOW!! I really enjoyed this book and I plan on reading the next one right now! I love all the twist and turns. I was hoping the ex would have fought for Chloe more.  Great start to a series!!

If there was a quarter of a star I would have given it less.... This was just stupid, ugly, the characters were completely unlikeble.  Absolutely nothing of a story, I feel cheated out of .99 and of my time.  This is crap!

I agree it was a great story but expensive for such a short story....why can't authors write a full book. She should just combine all these books into one story and then charge $2.99....frustrating!

I really liked the story but 2.99 for 65 pages is way to much in my opinion.
