When we were kids, we made all kinds of promises. We promised to always be best friends, to always put each other first, and that no matter what, no one would come between us. Little did we know that life had its own plans.
We grew up and reality set in. We realized that not all love lasts forever, and some promises are meant to be broken. It’s ironic that the promises we made as kids, the ones we thought would hold us together, might just be the very thing that could tear us apart.
My Rating - 5 Stars!
I've never read a Nikki Ash book before, but I am thrilled to have discovered her latest, Unbroken Promises. This one immediately grabbed my attention, as well as my heart, unable to put it down until I was finished.
This story is complex, as it involves three best friends, Delilah, Cole and Xavier, following them through over twenty years. The three became family to each other at an early age, promising to always be there for one another.
Through the years, Cole and Xavier support and care for Delilah as she struggles with cancer. Their bond is strong and unbreakable, until things get to be too complicated for Xavier and he leaves.
Until he needs to return. And nothing is the same. They had all met at a time when they needed each other, and they seem to make their way back to each other at a time when Delilah needs them the most. They had always helped her to escape her reality, but no one ever mentioned the future. Sadly for them all, Cole had made a promise to his mother than he won't allow himself to break.
There are multiple different sexual relationships among the three, and I have to admit that the scenes are emotional and hot! We also see how love is sometimes not enough.
Unbroken Promises will make you cry, make you smile, and make you cry some more. As in a big, fat, ugly cry. You'll get to rejoice in the depth of their love for each other, and you'll cry at the depth of their despair and their all consuming grief. Nikki Ash does a spectacular job of creating these characters and developing their complex lives over such a long span of years. This is one book I will be sure to read again!
