PROMISES is a story of how Jared overcomes his fear of being stigmatized by society and how Matt learns of a different side of himself. It’s a great story for those who are interested in reading M/M but are unsure of where to start. Marie Sexton crafts a beautiful story with some twists that makes PROMISES a book I devoured in just one night.
What I loved about this book is its slow building sexual tension. The sex is hot but it’s because of the sexual tension that Sexton has created between the two that makes this book that much more satisfying. Similarly, I love the slow progression of the words, “I’m not gay” from Matt to the “I love you” at the end. It was simply perfect!
