Making Promises: Keeping Promise Rock, Book 2 | [Amy Lane]

Making Promises: Keeping Promise Rock, Book 2

All Shane Perkins ever wanted to be was a hero. But after a career-shattering decision to go down fighting, Shane comes home from the hospital to four empty walls, a pile of money, and a burning desire for someone to miss him the next time he gets hurt in the line of duty. He ends up an officer in the small town of Levee Oaks, and, addicted to the promise of family, he makes an effort to reconcile with his flighty, troubled sister. Kimmy makes her living as a dancer, and her partner steals Shane's breath at first sight.

Publisher's Summary

All Shane Perkins ever wanted to be was a hero. But after a career-shattering decision to go down fighting, Shane comes home from the hospital to four empty walls, a pile of money, and a burning desire for someone to miss him the next time he gets hurt in the line of duty. He ends up an officer in the small town of Levee Oaks, and, addicted to the promise of family, he makes an effort to reconcile with his flighty, troubled sister. Kimmy makes her living as a dancer, and her partner steals Shane's breath at first sight.

Mikhail Vasilyovitch Bayul dances like an angel, but his past is less than heavenly. Since he left Russia, he's made only two promises: to stay off the streets and stay clean, and to take his mother someplace beautiful before she dies. Making promises to anybody else is completely out of the question - but then, Mikhail has never met anybody like Shane. Earnest, brave, and self-deprecating, Shane seems to speak Mikhail's language, and no one is more surprised than Mikhail to find that keeping promises is Shane's best talent of all.

    "Another Journey to take..."

    The 2nd book in the Promise Rock series, I really enjoyed this book. I inadvertently read book 3 (Living Promises: Keeping Promise Rock) first but I don't think the reading order was too detrimental to the stories presented by Amy Lane. Learning of Shane's story, Mikhail's journey and the eventual joining was a delightful experience. Though maybe not as gut-wrenching as the first book, the story still evoked a mass of emotional responses and was still worth the read. I do recommend this book!

    "Great Story and good listening"
    Where does Making Promises rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book has such a great story line and a lot of really great sex scenes in it that come across as totally believable and stirring as well. I would encourage anyone to purchase it that is into gay male romance. Great story line and it actually kept me up listening long into the evening!

    Story
    "Sweet and Painful and Perfect"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Making Promises to be better than the print version?

    I'll admit, hearing the brief bits of song that Mr. Morey was oh so kind enough to actually sing in his narration was was very nice touch. Please, DSP, please keep this man. He narrates like he gives a damn.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Making Promises?

    Mikhail's lonely (but not really) week from hell, if I want to avoid spoilers. It tore at my heart reading it and I was sitting at work listening to the audio in tears. Just. So. Sad.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I'm a sucker for every scene where someone asshole was getting punched.


    If you could rename Making Promises, what would you call it?

    Big Stupid Cop meets Irritating Russian Diva and Fall in Love.

    "The audio brought the book alive"

    For some reason I couldn't get through the ebook version of this sequel to Keeping Promise Rock. I had loved the first installment, though, and had bought all three ebooks so decided to see if Morey could help.

    Unlike Mickie Ashling's Taste, Morey enabled me to reread the first book and enjoy the second. I still like him better in Calmes' A Matter of Time but Morey's inconsistently good so I tend to buy when he's narrating even when the book isn't one I'm looking out for, as in this case.

    MP isn't as angsty as the first installment but it still tiring. Lane does that to me and even though I may be engrossed in the story, when it's over I always feel like I need a palate cleanser. It's been months since I listened and read this book and I still can't bring myself to do the third and final installment.

    I will, though. It IS Morey after all,

    Story
    "Read the first book, first!"

    This book was particularly great in that half of the story's timeline is parallel to the previous book, thus adding a back/extra story to it. I just couldn't get into Shane as much as Deacon and Crick but I really loved the character of Micky. I know a person exactly like him. It was painful to watch (read) him. I have to say there were a bit too much of crap upon crap heaped upon them, but they prevailed and that's what I think counts. I am glad that Deacon doesn't have to worry about the next door anymore!
    on to the next!
