I’ve had my eyes set on her for months. The gorgeous brunette captured my attention when I first saw her and stole my heart when I met her.

Making it in the music industry has taken its toll on me, chipping away at my confidence and patience. The one thing that keeps me going is having Reese by my side. I’m determined to show her how good we can be together, even if she continues to pretend there’s nothing between us.

One night changes everything, risking the only thing I’d want more than a career in country music—her.

In Review: My Thoughts

I’ve had my eye on Fabiola Francisco’s books for awhile now, but for some reason never made the leap. That all changed when I read the blurb for Promise You. While I might not be a rockstar romance girl, I love me some country music heroes. I was a total goner once I saw that cover and I knew I had to read it. I wasn’t disappointed. Also, I kinda want to binge her backlist now, so I’m accepting recommendations.

I’m a sucker for a good friends to lovers book. It’s one of my top fave tropes. And for some reason, I love it even more when it’s the guy who is head over heels and relentless (but not creepy) in his pursuit of the woman. I thought I might be in for an angsty book, but Dex and Reese’s story was fairly low on the angst scale as far as I was concerned. It was sweet, swoony and sexy and not without some drama and feels, but none of it was overwhelming. I enjoyed getting lost in their story and their chemistry and obvious feelings for each other.

Promise You sucked me in immediately and held on tight the whole time. I adored the characters and the way things progressed between them. It was such a sweet friends to lovers story between two very likable characters. (And with a host of great secondary characters as well.) I know this book is a spinoff of the Rebel Desire series and while I never felt like I should’ve read that series before diving into this one, I still want to go back and read it now. Several of the characters got under my skin a little and I’d like to see how they got to where they are now. Now for the real struggle: finding time to binge Fiona’s backlist.

Favorite Quotes:

“I don’t know who broke your heart, but I promise to hold the pieces with care until you’re fully healed.”

About Fabiola Francisco

Fabiola Francisco loves the simplicity--and kick--of scotch on the rocks. She follows Hemingway's philosophy--write drunk, edit sober. She writes women's fiction and contemporary romance, dipping her pen into new adult and young adult. Her moods guide her writing, taking her anywhere from sassy and sexy romances to dark and emotion-filled love stories.

Writing has always been a part of her life, penning her own life struggles as a form of therapy through poetry. She still stays true to her first love, poems, while weaving longer stories with strong heroines and honest heroes. She aims to get readers thinking about life and love while experiencing her characters' journeys.

She is continuously creating stories as she daydreams. Her other loves are country music, exploring the outdoors, and reading.
