Promise Me Always by Kari March, K23 Designs

Blake Bentley had a rough upbringing, never fully believing he was good enough for anything or anyone. After being left with a broken heart by his only girlfriend, Blake swore off relationships for good and turned to the only two things that made him feel sufficient - sex and firefighting.

Tessa Collins was brought up in the traditional 'perfect' family - loving parents, great sister, and amazing friends. After falling in love with Jared, her life was perfect - until he betrayed her. She has no idea that his betrayal could end up costing her more than just a shattered heart.

Blake and Tessa have been friends since high school. Never wanting to admit their attraction for each other, the two always remained close friends. Now, three years later, Blake and Tessa find themselves being pulled together by a force much greater than friendship.

Blake and Tessa have promised to be friends forever, but as fate pulls them together, they embark on a roller coaster ride of a lifetime. Will his self doubt and her insecurities keep them apart? Or will they be able to promise each other always?

**content is for +18yrs.**

About the Author

I am a new adult contemporary author that is currently working on my first novel, Promise Me Always. I am a wife, mother of 2 amazing kiddos, photographer, graphic designer and cover designer, as well as an avid reader and blogger! I have been married since 2004 to the most amazing man ever and together we have two amazing children.

I was born in Aurora, CO and still reside their today with my amazing family. I couldn�t imagine living anywhere else in the world. I have become accustom to bi-polar weather living here and I absolutely love getting all four seasons (although winters could be a bit shorter.)

I have a small obsession with Starbucks and gummy bears! They make the perfect writing snack! Wine helps a lot too especially with the late night writing sessions. I love the summer and everything that goes along with it, camping, swimming, boating, hiking, etc. I love to travel and Disneyland is one of my family�s favorite places to visit together. I have a dream of visiting so many places in the world such as Italy, Greece, Australia, Fiji, Bora Bora and New Zealand (just to name a few.)

I have met so many amazing people in this journey so far and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.

Loved this book.....refreshing and honest....yes, some of the comments/situations may seem a but immature, but if you take a moment to look at the whole picture, each of these characters have gone through some adversity in their teen years that have stunted & shaped their lives. All in all great book & I just purchased book 2 & can't decide whether to start it now at 145am or wait until later!! Everyone enjoy, ignore other comments & just read for yourself & decide how YOU feel!

Very good book although I got a little frustrated with some of the characters in the book. At times these characters remind me middle school or high school kids instead of adults. It was a very sweet love story, a story of how words are destroy a person.

I had given up on reading for a long time, just got busy with work, family, everyday life, and just never found anything that could completely keep my attention. I could not put this one down! Loved the drama, the characters, and it is HOT... Just don't read at work ;) can't wait for the next one!

I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review.  I gave this book 5 stars.  This is Tessa and Blake's story. Tessa has had a beautiful life, she loves her family and her friends. Her love life not so great. She has been cheated on more then once and she is tired of being used. She has known Blake since High School and although she has been attracted to him she has settled for being his friend. She would rather have him as a friend then not have him in her life at all.  Blake his life is not a good one and he feels like he isn't good enough for anyone. Yes he has had it rough and he has the ghosts to prove it. He is so attracted to Tessa, but he also knows that with the way things are in his life he will never be good enough for her. At least that is what he keeps telling himself.. Over and over and over again.  Once these two stop fighting themselves can they make it a go? Will their love be all that they think it could be? Or will their problems get in the way. Jealousy, self doubt, ex's ... Come on Tessa and Blake's journey and find out why they are so amazing together.  "Promise, me." "Always."   Let me just say these two had to go through hell to be together. I like the fact that they were basically best friends and knew each other so well. I don't think a normal couple could have been able to handle the things that these two did. Up and down. Up and down. I was captured from the beginning to the very delicious epilogue that was pure perfection!    photo promisemealways3.jpg I love this story and I cannot wait to read the next one coming up!! It is sure to be just as good!! Thank you Kari for a beautiful story. About learning to let the people you least expected to love you! You never know what Fate has in store for you! <3

Great intro to the Always series! I was riveted from the moment I started the story. All of the characters were wonderful and I enjoyed all of their individual personalities. The story line was engaging and I had no problem finishing it in one sitting. Blake and Tessa have an instant connection but they obviously have some personal issues standing in their way. Blake is a seriously sexy tattooed firefighter constantly fighting to overcome his self doubt. Tessa is fun and feisty, finishing up her associates degree in photography, and has her own insecurities. Despite their issues, they really complement each other and I really enjoyed their story. All of their friends were fun to read about as well and they lent great support to Blake and Tessa throughout the whole book. I really look forward to reading more about this wonderful group of people I’ve become seriously attached to. This book evokes a lot of different emotions and I really liked that. I think the best books get you to feel for the characters and this definitely accomplished that. This was a fantastic read and I look forward to more from the series and the author. A wonderful story and a solid 5 out of 5 stars!!

What an emotional roller-coaster. I could hardly put it down. I love to read from male and female POV. Blake has a hard and abusive past and Tessa has a loving family. They met in high school and became friends. She was in a relationship at that time, but she finds him cheating and Blake is there to comfort her. I really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to Cam and Cara's story.

I came across a blurb about this book on my Facebook. Read the description and was like yeah I'll give it a shot. Wow I was totally blown away. Tess and Blake have been friends for many years, and while they've always harbored an attraction to one and other they never really gave in. That was until they couldn't fight it any more. But the both are carrying around tons of emotional baggage not to mention crazy Ex's. Great job Kari can't wait to read Cam and Cara's story

Great chemistry between Tessa and Blake.  Loved Blake!  A hot romance with lots of twists and turns.  I highly recommend this book.   Cannot wait for the sequel about Cam and Cara!
