Promise Me This by Christina Lee ♥♥♥.5
Promise Me This by Christina Lee is the fourth book in the Between Breaths series, a series which I have really enjoyed. There will be no spoilers in this review, but the books should be read in order, because you see other characters from previous books, but if you really wanted to you could read this as a stand-alone since there isn’t much crossover.
Promise Me This tells Nate and Jessie’s story. Jessie is tattooed, blue haired, and can’t afford to go to school full time. Nate is clean cut and has everything in his life paid for by his family. The two of them seem pretty different, and are having a hard time fighting their sudden feeling for each other. To make matters worse, Nate has a troubled past, making it difficult for him to get close to anyone, no matter how much he wants to. But Jessie is willing to wait him out.
Like the other books in the series, I really enjoyed reading this. Watching Nate and Jessie struggle with their feelings turned out to be a really great story. And we also watch Nate deal with plenty of family problems.
This book did feel different than the others. Sex took more of a front seat in the story, and there was much more sexual tension and talk about sex than the previous books. It was part of the story line so I thought it made sense that sex played more of a role. I didn’t dislike it, but I didn’t love it either.
This story was a real page turner; I stayed up all night reading it. Read the whole series, and then read Promise Me This. Let me know what you think!
