"You Promised Me Forever (Forever Yours, #1)" Reviews
Did not finish because the h was suuuuppppeeerrr annoying. Her best friend spoke the truth:
"Lena turns, her eyes blazing. “If you don’t want him, you should let him know. Not lead him on.”
I take a step back. “I’m not leading Cade on.”
“You so are. You’re being incredibly selfish right now, Amanda. Cade’s already halfway in love with you, but some other guy is sending you expensive flowers. It’s making you look…” She clamps her lips shut and shakes her head.
“It’s making me look what?”
Lena’s upper lip curls. “Trashy.”"
I loved this sexy, second chance romance! Tuttle and Amanda had so much chemistry their attraction leaped off the page. Reunited lovers is one of my favorite themes and this one was super fun and heartwarming.
Review by Lisa Kane
I loved Amanda and Tuttle's romance from the Friends series. Two complete opposites, she shy and unassuming, he popular and confidant. I thought when I read the last chapter that was it for them. But nope-it seems they broke up in college and he went on to be a big time NFL star.
She gave up on me. I gave up on her too. And that's hard to admit.
Six years have gone by since Amanda Winters broke Jordan Tuttle's heart by breaking up with him. Both have gone on with their lives, but haven't really moved on with their lives. When Amanda sees an interview on live TV with Jordan he talks about "the one who got away" and how he still thinks about her. Amanda friends him on Instagram and he responds in a flash. They message, he asks her if she wants to come to one of his games and it's game on!
Amanda is casually dating a coworker and Jordan has dated some of the most famous women in the world. All of Amanda's old insecurities rise to the surface. The same fears that led to her breaking up with him in the first place are coming back. With his glamorous life style, who wouldn't be intimidated?
They were both kids straight out of high school when Jordan was just about to break out into football stardom. The pressure was too much and they both suffered for it.
I didn't have time for any of them. Worse, I didn't have time for Amanda-the supposed most important person in my life. College consumed me. Football consumed me. So many things were happening and I let them take me away from her.
So I felt like shit. After some time and distance, I realized I'm just as much to blame for the break up as she is.
I think that right there sums up everything that happened. Amanda was back at home going to community college and Jordan, well he had so much going on that their relationship drowned in the sea of change.
It's obvious they are both still attracted to each other, but is it just physical or is that love still there? Neither one could get serious with anyone else. They've dated others, slept with others, but their hearts, oh those beat only for each other.
How'd I get so lucky that she wasn't snapped up by another guy and engaged to him by now? Or worse, married? I thought about it over the years. What if she met the man of her dreams? What if she married that guy and had his children?
Those thoughts were like a punch to the gut.
I loved this book! I loved their story when they were teenagers, but they have both grown and matured and both are willing to expose themselves to hurt. That's what I loved the most-they admit they screwed up, take responsibility and try like hell to get back together!
"Yeah, well, I love you so goddamned much, I want everyone to know it."
A second chance romance with an NFL football player? My type of book! Jason Tuttle is the starting quarterback in the San Francisco team, enjoying his third season. Amanda is a hard-working assistant physical therapist. They were childhood friends, then high school sweethearts. They were dating during their senior year and part of Jason’s first year in University, on a football scholarship. He was so busy with his new life that he ignored Amanda, until she dumped him via text.
Amanda used to have many insecurities as a teenager. Even while Jason reassured her that he wanted only her and professed his love, she always felt inferior, like she didn’t deserve such a hot and popular guy as Jason. When Jason was in University and he cancelled so many dates, wouldn’t answer the phone, and generally ignored her, her insecurities flared up high and she dumped him.
Six years later, she has to live, watching him in TV ads, gossip magazines, game commentaries, etc. She wavers between feeling like she did what was necessary or if it was the dumbest decision she ever took. Until one day in a TV interview he affirms he thinks about the girl who got away every single day.
She contacts him through social media and they connect again, but they still have many obstacles. Even though Amanda is now a professional, has matured some and conquered her insecurities (mostly), she still feels not enough. Jason is afraid of being dumped again, so he proceeds cautiously. The differences in their world, in their finances, and his team’s hectic schedule stand in the way of their reunion.
I liked the book, but was sometimes tired of Amanda’s self-doubts. The book had a very narrow focus, only addressing their second chance reunion, and I felt that it lacked the richness of stories when the characters’ world, family and friends are included in the plot.
You promised me forever is a second chance book, but at the same time, it didn't feel like it. Jordan and Amanda have a history together, they were in love with each other once upon a time, they broke up, moved on with their lives and after a documentary, they got the chance to talk and see each other again. Both of them have mostly got their break up behind them and accepted it. We don't get to see a ton of bitterness from either and at the same time there is a part of them and mostly from Jordan's part, that hasn't moved on and is not ok with how things ended. The story is mostly told from Amanda's point of view, so it wasn't as easy to see what Jordan's motives and thoughts were. He is completely honest with Amanda though and that helped me understand what was on his mind.
The book felt like the usual romance where the hero and heroine meet each other after the story begins and have 0 history together. It could have simply been a new relationship that was moving on very quickly. It doesn't have any angst and it was one of the easiest second chance books to read in my opinion. I am dying to see Jordan and Amanda's friend getting a story with Sussana. That pair had a spark and I want to see if they will get a happy end. After Amanda and Jordan's story ended, the author mentioned that there is another story about them happening when they together six years ago, so you might wanna check that out too.
