Overview

Tanner's Promise by Kaylie Newell

Tanner Harlow is a talented landscape designer, quietly building a name and a solid future when he finds himself needing to be the temporary guardian to his eleven-year-old half-sister. Tanner loves her, but can't see himself as a father figure or imagine how he's going to build his business during his busiest season with a child in tow until his newest client--his high school crush who still makes his heart pound--has a proposition that will help them both as long as Tanner can resist the tempting lure of the girl next door.

Elementary school teacher Francie Tate moved back to Marietta to be close to her ailing father. She plans to settle in and fix up her little bungalow before the school year starts, but definitely needs help with the neglected yard. She's shocked when the landscaper she hired turns out to be a class mate. Tanner used to be shy in school, but he isn't the same kid anymore–he's tall, sexy, and has the most striking brown eyes she's ever seen. When Francie learns of Tanner's need for child care, she impulsively offers to watch his half-sister for the summer in return for some landscaping and renovations around the house.

It seems like a win-win, but Francie didn't bargain on falling in love.

I really liked Tanner's story and can't wait to read the stories for the other brothers. Tanner is trying to start a business and take care of his little sister. They are still mourning their mother's death. She wasn't always much of a mother, but they loved her. Tanner isn't sure he could raise a little girl, so he will be sending his sister to live with their aunt after summer is over. Francie is a grade school teacher and is trying to fix up her new home. She needs something done with the yard and has hired someone to take care of it. Tanner shows up and all the old feelings from high school show up with it. Tanner had loved Francie back then and she always felt protective of him. He had a stutter and everyone, including her boyfriend, made fun of him. Now he is all grown up and the stutter is gone. As Francie helps him care for his sister, they grow closer. He knows she is too good for him, but he can't help himself, he just has to be with her. How can he let his sister go and he really shouldn't get any closer to Francie, but he can't help it, he just has to be with her.

Tanner is setting up a landscaping business in his hometown Marietta. When his mother passes away he becomes his sister Maddie’s temporary guardian. Tanner isn’t sure he can give the preteen the care she needs, but he loves her dearly and is very protective of her. That’s why he doesn’t want Maddie to stay at home by herself when he’s working. Fortunately the ideal solution presents itself. Tanner’s next project is at the house of his high school crush. Francie is a teacher and doesn’t mind spending time with Maddie during the summer holidays. That also means Tanner will see her regularly, will his heart be able to handle this? Tanner wasn’t popular in high school and when Francie sees him for the first time after many years she’s stunned. The lanky, awkward stuttering boy has grown into a gorgeous muscled man who knows exactly what to say. There’s definitely an attraction, but their past is something they have to put behind them first. Will they be able to deal with what went wrong in high school, so they can start looking at the future instead? Tanner isn’t ready for any kind of commitment, will spending time with Maddie and Francie change this? Tanner’s Promise is a wonderful romantic story. Tanner had a tough life when he was a kid. He didn’t have an easy time at home and school was horrible. He wants things to be different for his sister and will do anything to make Maddie happy, even if it means letting her grow up elsewhere while it would break his heart. He’s such a kind and gentle man, but hasn’t received much love in return. Francie can change that, however, she has to deal with a part of her personality first that keeps getting her in trouble. I couldn’t wait to see where that would lead. Francie and Tanner have plenty of chemistry and their connection is deep and genuine, which is something I really liked. I also loved how they care about Maddie, she’s an adorable young girl and a real asset to the story. Kaylie Newell’s main characters are fantastic and constantly put a big smile on my face. Marietta is a terrific location to read about. I enjoyed finding out more about this cosy small town a lot. Kaylie Newell’s vivid descriptions are making her setting come to life in a delightful way. I also admired how she creates a lovely heartwarming atmosphere that fabulously unites the place and the people she writes about. Tanner’s Promise has the exact right vibe, plenty of charm and beautiful meaningful relationships. I absolutely loved this amazing book.

I really enjoyed the characters in this one. They were well-written and well-develop with both the positive and negative aspects of their personalities on full display, and the flaws weren’t glossed over. Maddie was an integral part of the story, she had been through so much, and her bond with her brothers, especially Tanner, is undeniable. Francie is another strong character who is well-aware of what she perceives as her shortcomings and what she needs to work on. This was a good story in a beautiful setting that leaves you wanting more. Luckily, there are two more brothers that are supposed to return to the fictitious town of Marietta, Montana and they will have their stories told! #TannersPromise #HarlowBrothers #ReadTulez

I loved this book! Tanner is such a kind, compassionate, loving man you can't help but fall in love with him. He hasn't let his rough childhood make him bitter. Now life is dumping on him again. His mother just passed away and he finds himself responsible for the care of his 12 year old sister until his aunt can take her to Hawaii at the end of summer. He's just getting his landscape business off the ground so taking time off isn't an option. So as he goes to meet his latest client he has no choice but to take his sister with him. Francie just returned to Marietta and bought a house she's trying to fix up. She's surprised the landscaper she called turns out to be Tanner Harlow. A boy she knew in school but hadn't seen since. He's no boy now, he's a man and a sexy one at that. When she notices the young girl that comes to work with him each day Francie offers to hang out with her so Tanner doesn't have to worry about her. Over the summer the three of them form a special bond but with summer winding down and the project nearing completion will Tanner go after what he really wants or will he let this summer become a memory? This is a very well done book and one I would definitely recommend.

I have been waiting for this Marietta book to come out for a while and when it did Tanner Harlow's school life reminded so much of my school life that it simple blew me away. I sat and read this book in one sitting. It is no surprise to those who know my reviews that I would be reading this Marietta based book because well it has become by adopted hometown. But this book touched more to me than simply being part of a community that touches my soul. This book is about three brothers who are there for their tween step-sister. Tanner had issues in school and when his mom passes he is left to take care of his step-sister who needs him more than ever. Sadly his Aunt wants to pull his sister away and take her to Hawaii to live with her there after the summer months are over and this is just part of the storyline that gets to me. Tanner owns a landscaping company, no he is not a gardner or a yard boy as some seem to think. Boy do I know that feeling in life. Then he runs into the girl who seems to be the only one who saw him when he was in high school. Like really saw him and not his stutter... Francie Tate. She is back in Marietta and is a school teacher herself. This is one of those books that once I picked it up it was like Kaylie Newell was writing for me to read this. Like she knew I WAS going to read this and she was saying "I see YOU and I know You and You are Important to Me. I can not wait for the next Hallow brother's story and to see who he meets in Marietta and how they interact with these three.

Why does love have to be complicated for Tanner? Tanner young and single, has just taken temporary custody of his half sister, who is eleven. His sister would like to make this permanent but Tanner does need see himself as a full time father. Tanner has also has reconnected with his high school crush, Francie who has just moved back to Marietta. Loved these characters, they all showed such emotions. They all showed such growth in their personal lives and finally finding their HEA. I did not want to see this book end. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I highly recommend.

I loved, loved, loved Tanner’s Promise by Kaylie Newell, her first book in The Harlow Brothers series. This wonderful story is not quite a second-chance story or friends to lovers trope, but the hero and heroine were high school classmates. Tanner Harlow has quietly been building his landscape business using his landscape designer degree. After the death of his mother he finds himself as the temporary guardian to his eleven-year-old half-sister. Tanner loves his sister but has no idea how he’s going to be able to build his business during his busiest season while keeping his sister with him. Luck is on his side when his newest client, his high school crush, has a solution that would benefit them both. Francie Tate, an elementary school teacher, moved back to Marietta so she could be close to her ailing father. Her little bungalow needs some fixing up, but the neglected yard needs a lot of help. Imagine her surprised when the landscaper she hired turns out to be her class mate Tanner. When Francie learns of Tanner’s need for child care, she impulsively offers to watch his half-sister for the summer in return for some landscaping and renovations around the house. This deal seemed like a win-win, but neither Francie nor Tanner planned on falling in love with each other or with Tanner’s sister. I enjoyed seeing the main characters grow and become more confident throughout this story. Tanner learned that he was not only capable of parenting his sister but that his work was in high demand. Francie was able to stand up for herself instead of trying to please others, but especially her mother and her high school ex-boyfriend. Despite obstacles Tanner and Francie didn’t anticipate they were able to create a friendship that was respectful and loving. I totally loved reading this book and didn’t want to put this book down. Ms. Newell wrote a wonderful and emotional story which drew me in, making me forget the world around me and did not let me go until I turned the last page, loving the characters she created. I highly recommend this book to other reader and look forward to the future books in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

The Setting sun lit the Montana Sky in a slow bleed of fluid purples and burnt oranges the likes of which Tanner Harlow hadn't seen since he was a kid." A great start to the first book in the Harlow Brothers series, Tanner's Promise by Kaylie Newell. Great characters and character development. I especially enjoyed the connection between Tanner and his sister Maddie. Looking forward to seeing what the next book brings to us.
