Publisher's Summary

Carrick Francis has spent most of his life jumping into trouble with both feet. The only thing saving him from prison or worse is his absolute devotion to Deacon Winters. Deacon was Crick's sanity and salvation during a miserable, abusive childhood, and Crick would do anything to stay with him forever. So when Deacon's father dies, Crick puts his college plans on hold to help Deacon as Deacon has helped him.Deacon's greatest wish is to see Crick escape his memories and the town they grew up in so Crick can enjoy a shining future. But after two years of growing feelings and temptation, the painfully shy Deacon finally succumbs to Crick's determined advances and admits he sees himself as part of Crick's life.

It nearly destroys Deacon when he discovers Crick has been waiting for him to push him away, just like Crick's family did in the past. When Crick's knack for volatile decisions lands him far away from home, Deacon is left, shell-shocked and alone, struggling to reforge his heart in a world where love with Crick is a promise, but by no means a certainty.

    Story
    "Very satisfying read."


    One thing I have problem with a lot of MM novels are that you really get to know one character really well while the other characters motives and thoughts are somewhat vague. I am not saying that it is not described, it's just not really expressed. For example, we get to know about Jory really well in (:A Matter of Time,by Mary Calmes)] on the other hand Sam not really. Well I suppose this could be said about a lot of romance novels. You get to know the heroines extremely well like a good girl friend, but the heroes not really.
    BUT in this story we are invited to join both of the main characters' mind and hearts. It makes the story a bit longer and maybe dragging in some parts, but I loved it. I am looking forward to continue reading the series.

    "Sweet story, could have been told better"

    This is a sweet story and Amy Lane isnt bad. I liked the characters she created, flawed and at the same time kind and compassionate. The narrator really need to stop screeching in that annoying tone when speaking for some of the characters!

    Story
    "Great writing, but 3 hours too long."
    What did you like best about Keeping Promise Rock (Gay Romance)? What did you like least?

    I liked the writing style. The story was also very real. It felt real and I think the author did justice to the content. Well done. The story was a bit long. It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the fact that most things towards the end had been mentioned constantly in the beginning of the book. if felt a bit redundant at times because of this. But I'd still give this book a thumbs up. The characters were well done.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Sean Crisden?

    Yes. I would, the voice range has gotten better with time and it will continue to improve, no doubt.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was great but long. I was emotionally invested in it until the last 3 hours. I felt like that part could have been done faster and not rehash things that the reader already knows. also, the second guessing became a bit redundant. The book was beautiful and the story was great but not perfect. If there is ever an abridged version, I would be interested in listening again. Well done though, overall, and I am a fan of Amy now.

    Story
    "Loved this Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Honestly I doubt it because I don't have any friends that read gay romance as I am a straight woman and only recently took a chance on something new and different.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Deacon and his devotion and love to everyone in his circle.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes and he was great as always, at least with the ones I have listened to so far.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but more than one. When Deacon broke down and cried in the hotel after Crick left. When Deacon lost it when Crick mentioned he wanted to leave to visit his friend's family that died in the Army.


    Any additional comments?

    If only everyone could have a Deacon in their life!

    "Wonderful journey, honest characters, intense love"

    I enjoyed the ride along with their emotional and relational growth. The story arch is perfect, I felt like a part of their family by the end looking toward the future with Crick and Deacon. Oh, yes, sexual encounters were hot and realistic at the same time. Love it, highly recommend it.

    "A Little Long"

    Good story, but a little too much background, it could have been a shorter listen with the same impact. The characters were good and the storyline very believable.

    "This should be a film!"

    Amy Lane has out done herself with this dramatic romance. I loved the development of the characters, the storyline and the vivid descriptions throughout. I found myself crying so many times that I had to confine listening to the evenings. I never give five stars but I think this story deserves it. Bravo Amy. And of course, I love Sean Crisden's narration. Beautiful love story that should be captured on film...
