The Promise Series 


After a relationship gone bad, Hilary Matthews felt unsure about where she belonged or what to do with her life. Cue Zach Collins, a love ‘em and leave ‘em, no strings attached type of guy. The perfect distraction for her wounded heart. Just one problem. Zach isn’t some random stranger. He’s her brother’s best friend, and more than that, he’s practically family.  And to complicate matters, just when things start to heat up between them, she learns there’s more to Zach than he let on.

Zach’s job as assistant to an A-list actor allows him the luxury of women, travel, freedom and fun. But things changed the moment Hilary made her move, completely altering his world. Hilary is his fantasy come to life, his dream woman in the flesh…and his best friend’s little sister. Stepping over the line with her would not only ruin his friendship, but possibly alienate him from the only family he’s ever known. 

The pressure mounts as truths are exposed. Embroiled in betrayal, lies, guilt, and heartache, Hilary and Zach must decide if the biggest emotion of all is worth the turmoil. With so much at stake, the repercussions from a promise broken would cause the battle of their lives.


A promise broken is a beautiful love story with a nice storyline and lovable characters.

Zach has lived with Matthews as their family member ever since his parents left him there with a lot of money. Zach is very lovable and relatable character. He is a person who could to do anything for the Matthew’s family, because it is the only family he had ever know. He is kind hearted and a bit afraid to fall in love or have a relationship. 

Hilary is Zach’s best friend Evan Matthews’ sister, she is a strong woman, who can make great scarifices for the person she loves.

A Promise Broken’s narrative is told from two point of views that is from Zach and Hilary’s POVs. Apart from being in the present, the narrative also goes into the past to tell certain instances such as when once a new year, years back Hilary was kissed on cheek by Zach. Other than this there were many other instances too. These trips to the past were a really good addition to the book.

Zach and Hilary’s love story was romantic, sensual and at times painful. A Promise Broken is kind of book that would leave you with a happy feeling after you finish reading it.

“He truly loved me, healed my heart, put me back together. He’d broken a promise—but in breaking it he created a newer, stronger bond. It was a promise that made us more than family. It made us forever.”~Hilary

 I would like to recommend this book to all romance lovers.
