Blurb: He promised to always be my best friend. He promised to marry me if we were both single at thirty. He promised me a forever together.
But that was before I discovered a secret that seemed to shatter everything I’d come to believe in. Had I lost him before he was ever mine? Had this secret ruined any promise of a forever together?
Jackson and Chloe have been friends for years, since they were seven and eight years old. That’s a very long time. They have been through many different phases in their lives. When they were 13 they made a pact, if they weren’t married by 30 they would get married. It has now been 17 years and Chloe is about to turn 30, but sadly Jackson and Chloe are no longer friends and he actually hates her for something that happened nine years ago….
At the end of Promise to Keep we ended with Chloe finding letters in her aunts attic from Jacksons dad to Chloe’s mom, making her think they were related which devastated her. She left her house in a hurry in tears not paying attention and ended up wrecking her car into the water.
“Please just wake up, Clo,” Jackson said, almost as if he were objecting to my last thought. “We’re supposed to be on our first date right now. We’re supposed to be happy right now.” I heard him sigh again, this time low and drawn out.
Jackson and Chloe are so perfect for each other, I was devastated when I found out they were related…how could this be possible? How could two people who are meant to be together just suddenly not be allowed to be together? It’s just not right!
It just seems wrong that they have just finally found their way back to each other after not being friends for so long and now they have to figure out what happens next. They’ve loved each other for so many years and now suddenly they aren’t allowed to anymore…where do they go from there? How do they remain in the friend zone? There has got to be some mistake, something so right shouldn’t be wrong.
Will Jackson and Chloe get their Happily Ever After? Or will they have to figure out how to move on from the only love they have ever know?
