Closing her heart a long time ago, Grace Clark made a promise she’s vowed to keep. Having Hollywood heartthrob Evan Matthews move in next door with his alluring good looks, charisma, wit, and sexy smile is a temptation that runs the risk of compromising the importance of that promise.
Evan is drawn to his new neighbor. Grace is the exact opposite of the women he normally encounters. Enticing, down-to- earth, and confident, she captivates him. She has no problems facing off with Evan, and he soon realizes Grace is much more than just a challenge. He wants to prove himself to her.
Grace can see the man beyond the actor, and with more than just her pride at stake, she needs to hold tight to her promise before Evan breaks through all her walls, exposing her heart.

I think I have a crush on Anissa Garcia. I read A Promise Kept in one sitting. Evan and Gracie’s journey was poignant, sweet and so romantic.
It was so beautifully written, I was utterly under the spell of the author’s writing.
Gracie is the kind of person to push people away. After a tragic event in her life, she guarded and protected her heart. Strong walls, with deep scars which haven’t healed yet. She is full of sass, bubbly and passionate. When this author met her new neighbor, Evan, a famous actor, her life is gonna change for ever.
Evan is not your typical famous actor. It was so refreshing to read about him. Charming, living his dream, meeting Gracie was an electroshock, the thrill and want he couldn’t feel even if he loves his job. I really had a crush on Evan, because he was the one to challenge and push Gracie out of her comfort zone, to love her, entirely, flaws and all.
The banter was incredible and flawless, the chemistry between the main characters was palpable. The storyline was scorching, describing the characters’ feelings in such a way, bringing almost the emotions into life.
A Promise Kept was an incredible book, from the storyline to the characters, I was hooked. Each one has its part, and all you want is to read each story to come. All was melting perfectly. Evan and Grace were just stunning and challenging. I appreciated how straightforward this story was. Efficient and straight to the guts. Just reading about how two people fall in love and make things work, no matter what happens, because that’s what you do when you love someone, you support, challenge
I was amazed by the way the author could balance the emotional parts with this hint of sweetness, fun and so swoony moments. Sometimes I was hurting with the characters and for most part of the book, it just made me smile. Book crush alert!
