Publisher's Summary

Sabrina Chandler has been unlucky in love: 10 years ago, just before her high school graduation, she was shockingly betrayed by her boyfriend and her so-called best friend.

That dark day, a mysterious bad boy, Tyler Anderson, came to her defense. He made her promise to leave their hometown, told her she deserved so much more — things that he could not give her.

Now, Sabrina reluctantly heads to her high school reunion, hoping to confront her betrayers — and, just maybe, to meet Tyler again.

Can Sabrina find the courage to face her demons, let go of the pain, and move forward into happiness? Or will insecurity and self-doubt ruin her chance to get the love she’s not sure she even deserves?

    "Great Narration- Great Story-!! <3"
    Any additional comments?

    Ok I first have to say is that I love Kate Rudd, she’s the narrator on this book, and her voice is just perfect. I’ve listened to her a few times, and her voice was the perfect voice for the characters she played in Promise Me.

    Promise Me was about heartbreak,new kindled love. Barbie delivered every emotion to this book. I even laughed a ton i- with the help of the voice from the narrator you felt everything.

    Lets start with the Prologue- WOW- caught my attention right away. Sabrina a young high school girl finds her boyfriend and her best friend hooking up. That’s when she meets Tyler Anderson. The Bad boy. He finds her while she watches her boyfriend cheat, and comforts her in a way her own boyfriend couldn’t comfort her. He makes her make a promise that she would leave the both of them and move on…. That was 10 years ago!

    Fast Forward……Sabrina Chandler- 28 year old who lives in Miami with her crazy protective BFF Julia. First…. her roommate is to die for, she is hysterical, and she is totally what a Best friend should act like. Anyways…. Sabrina and Julia are in Miami, Sabrina works for a art museum. Sabrina gets mail asking her to come back to there hometown for a high school reunion.

    After facing the ex-boyfriend and now the ex best friend , ohh yeah forgot to mention they got married with 2.5 kids! Ok, so she faces the challenges with them but really the only reason why she came back was to see Tyler. Ok.. Tyler was all sorts of good stuff. He’s restaurant owner, good looking and tatted. Nice right? Well… She see’s him at the reunion, and its almost like they never left each other. I loved how Sabrina grew with the story and never put up with Tyler’s bull crap. She gave him a run for his money, and in the end you fell in love with both characters. Since this is an audio review- I’m telling you will love it. With a set of earphones on and laughing out loud to the story, I fell in love with Barbies writing. And guess what!!! There is going to be a book #2 in the Finding Forever series. Thats right its Julia’s story!!! Ga…. I’m soooo excited to here what happens with Julia and Alex- ohh yea Alex, forgot mention him. Alex is Sabrina’s boss in Miami… The one who wanted to hook with her…but in the end we like Alex!!! If your not into audio, than pick up this book quick great read/ great audio/ great author.!!!!

    Every time I hear or see you cry it kills me just a little bit more because I know it’s me who’s to blame for it. I know I’ll never be good enough for you… I knew it back then, and I f***ing know it for sure now. I know I don’t have any right to ask, but if you give me another chance, I swear I will spend the rest of my life trying to put that beautiful smile back on your face. Because what I came here to tell you is that I need you… I need you like I need the f***ing air to breathe.”

    “Because wherever you are, is where I want to be. You can take all the time you need to think, but I’m not giving up. You and I… we belong together and I’ll wait for however long it takes because I love you.”

    “No, you don’t get it at all. I wish you would have told me sooner because I miss you like crazy and I’m dying to see your beautiful face again. Don’t get any crazy ideas in that pretty little head of yours, I told you I’d wait and I’ve been doing nothing but waiting… and I’ll wait even longer if you needed me to.”

    I love a good story! If I don't have time to sit and read, I listen to an audiobook.

    "A Diamond in the Ruff!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Promise Me to be better than the print version?

    Kate Rudd does a fantastic job narrating this book. I only listened to the audio version and found it to be rather satisfying!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed all the characters but I gotta say..I love Sabrina's BFF Julie, and Alex as well!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I love this type of book as well as the dilemma between the two main characters! Barbie has a great talent for storytelling and I look forward to reading more from this author! She will now be on my auto purchase list!
    Many romance novels are rather...cheesy because of male leads that are too perfect as well as the storyline that lacks. This story is a perfect 5 star and I've only given Diana Gabaldon, Jamie McGuire, and SC Stephens 5 stars!!


    Any additional comments?

    If you love angst and a well written story, this is your book!

    "Just OK for me"
    What would have made Promise Me better?

    Kate Rudd is really hit or miss as a narrator for me. I liked her narration of this book, but I didn't love it.


    What was most disappointing about Barbie Bohrman’s story?

    The story was so typical for this new adult genre. The lack of good communication to clarify assumptions could have simply resolved so much. But then there wouldn' have been any angst. I understand that...I just didn't have any patience for it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Rudd?

    Kate wasn't bad. I think I had difficulty with the overall story, not the narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Forgiveness and trust was a nice redeeming message in this book.

    Story
    "Promise Me you won't listen to this book."

    Given narrator Kate had no plot to work with, she livens this story up by inhaling helium balloons to talk as fast as she can. Alvin the Chipmunk could have done the male voices. The leading lady Sabrina is shallow, holds grudges for 10 years, thinks of no one but herself and her woes, yet 2 hot men and her roommate adore her. Do not waste a credit.

    Story
    "Why o Why!!!"

    Why did I pick this book? Because the summary sounded alright. How I forced myself to continue reading to the end is completely beyond me. A stupid pointless waste of time pathetic pity party story.

    In the beginning yeah this did have the potential to go somewhere. What killed it? 1, the main character Sabrina. Talk about self-obsessed! By the way, the way she treated her parents, her best friend and Alex was annoying as hell! 2, the men in her life. One word Loser! 3, the need for the author to tell us everything single little thing she was feeling when clearly it was in her actions through show. I felt like I wasn’t smart enough to work it out for myself. Haha, maybe I wasn’t smart if I decided to waste a credit! Honestly, if you’re contemplating a read, you will enjoy pieces but for the most part it just falls short. She pretty much deals with her past conflicts in the first half and fizzles into poor me, poor ungrateful me

    "Nice story if you can overlook cheating"

    Good story, but I almost stopped listening when he cheated on her. In the end I was glad I finished the book.
