Review: Sam's Promise
Book Title: Sam's Promise by Anne Rainey
Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Blurb: "This Thanksgiving comes with all the fixings...and something extra hot."
"Blackwater, Book 1"
Sam Jennings promised his father he'd always take care of the woman who yanked him and his four brothers out of foster care. When his adoptive mom has a near-fatal heart attack, Sam knows it's past time to live up to his word.
As he sets out to put the Blackwater Diner back on its feet, he runs into his first snag. Waitress Julie Rose's sweet curves and long legs are driving Sam to distraction. Even his brothers aren't immune to her kind heart. But Sam is determined to be the only man in her bed.
Julie doesn't regret the years she lost caring for her grandmom, but now, between business classes and her job, she's left with very little time and energy for dating. Then there's her policy about never getting mixed up with the boss's son. But Sam's hard body and wicked ideas have Julie forgetting all about annoying things like rules, and she accepts his invitation to show her all she's been missing.
Sam is more than willing to take things slow as he teaches her all about the pleasures of the flesh. Luckily for him, Julie is a darned good student...
Warning: Contains explicit language, a sexy carpenter, and extra helpings of naughty fun under the stars. Heat and increased heart rate may help burn off extra holiday calories.
Sam Jennings is a carpenter who's main goal in life is to take care of his family. He has carried a heavy burden since the death of his father but he's always had to be the strong one. Never once thinking about himself.
Julie Rose is a college student when she isn't waiting tables at the dinner but when she meets the boss' son she is in deep. Not only is he gorgeous but he's a devoted family man. Putting his mother and siblings before his needs.
Julie and Sam have a rocky start but in the end love always wins. I really liked this story. I have to say I read all three books in this series and with each book they get better and better. I really liked Julie and the fact that she wasn't a perfect Barbie doll character. Nope. She was what I call a real characters. And Sam just broke my heart at time with the heavy weight he carries and the sadness that engulfs him.
But I don't want you to think this is a sad story it isn't It is a story of triumph and happiness. It is basically a rags to riches story not in the form of money but in the form of five orphan boys finding a kind couple that loved them like their own. Not to mention the romance was very endearing and heartfelt. I would recommend this story to anyone that likes their romances to really have an emotional punch.
