Living Promises: Keeping Promise Rock, Book 3

Six years ago, Jeff Beachum comforted a frightened teenager outside an HIV treatment clinic, and Collin Waters has remembered his kindness ever since. Now, after six years of crushing on the kind, brown-eyed sweetheart of his dreams, Collin is feeling adult and together enough to make his move. Too bad fate, which has never been kind to Jeff, has something else in mind.

Publisher's Summary

Six years ago, Jeff Beachum comforted a frightened teenager outside an HIV treatment clinic, and Collin Waters has remembered his kindness ever since. Now, after six years of crushing on the kind, brown-eyed sweetheart of his dreams, Collin is feeling adult and together enough to make his move. Too bad fate, which has never been kind to Jeff, has something else in mind.

Jeff's life had fallen completely apart before that long-ago day, and it isn’t much better now. Jeff has toughened up, become self-reliant, been the funny guy his friends turn to, the one who gives advice and comfort when needed. But every phantom from Jeff’s past is about to come out to haunt him, and the family Jeff has staked his future on isn’t in such great shape either. Collin is more than a starry-eyed kid, and it’s a good thing, because Jeff’s going to need all the help he can get. No one knows better than Jeff that life can be too short to turn your back on honest love, and that living happily is the best promise of all.

    "The Journey of Promise Rock Continues..."

    When I was introduced to Jeff Beachum in the first Promise Rock book, I was a bit put off by the character. If I were honest, it would be because of my own bias and refusal to relate to such a character. So image my surprise when I began this book to realize that the main character was Jeff and this kid named Collin. My immediate response was that I was not going to like this book. But because I have enjoyed everything else that I have read of Amy Lane's I figured that I would give it a shot. Mary's ability to tell a tale entrapped me in such a way that I was forced to recognize my own internalized bias and deal. Jeff's character was written in such a way that sometimes when he was confronting stupidity, I felt like he was talking to me. Personally, when an author can make the reader revaluate their own perspective, that is the sign of a great author. But enough on Amy. The book, though not as good as the first book, still managed to elicit an emotional response that involved laughter, tears, and compassion for the characters. A cathartic experience and I certainly recommend all three books in the series.

    "Small part of a greater story"
    What did you love best about Living Promises?

    It felt like it was written for all the characters encountered in the first 2 books


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    because it was too full of other stories, Jeff & Colin got lost & I did not feel a connection to their relationship even though it was well presented.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Morey?

    Yes, I usually really like his narration but it fell short in this book. The voices were unconvincing and more so than Book II, I felt that Mr. Morey did not have a good grasp of his characters. For example it made no sense for me at least why the voice "big stupid cop" kept getting younger, while Crick's 17 year-old sister started to sound like a mature man.


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

    Crick and Deacon after the operation!

    "wonderful story!"
    Would you listen to Living Promises again? Why?

    yes, I listended to the 1st book than the 3rd, at some point I will listen to them in order.


    What other book might you compare Living Promises to and why?

    I can't think of any :)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the whole book


    Who was the most memorable character of Living Promises and why?

    There's so many, Jeff, I adore his character. He's sweet and funny and I really wanted him to find love.


    Any additional comments?

    I recently watched the movie "house if Boys" That was painful to watch. When I started listening to this book, I actually stopped and started 3 times or better. I didn't know if I could handle a book about aids from Amy Lane ( I was thinking the worst could and would happen) But I finally did listen to it and I'm happy I did, It was wonderful, and yes I cried tear(s) allot. I was trying to explain to my son was I was crying and I said to him " I'm invested in the characters I feel like I could know them". That makes a great series, thanks Amy Lane!

    "Wonderful ending to a great series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Living Promises to be better than the print version?

    Don't know I didn't read the print version, but the audio is great b/c Paul Morey is great. I love everything he narrates.


    What other book might you compare Living Promises to and why?

    It is hard to compare b/c even though it is a separate love story, it is tied to the first two books. I would not call this a stand alone book, you really have to read them in order.


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

    Yes and I will listen to ANYTHING Paul Morey narrates. This is like his other works, excellent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No clue.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this series and the many characters involved. I was sad to see it end.

    "Great stories"

    OK done with the series and I have to say I enjoyed it a lot. Lane sensei gives us a LOT of information and that is what really got to me. I hated that the characters had to survive heaps and heaps of difficulty and angst but they overcame all with love. I wish that she also gave that detailed attention to the straight women in the group as much as straight men like John or Andrew. But that is just a minor complaint. A nice read and a great feeling good conclusion.
