"One of A Kind Romance you love to read"

Samantha Chase has created the perfect friends-to-lovers
romance for fallen rock star Dylan Anders and
super-efficient public relations executive, Paige Walters.
At first glance—Dylan and Paige seem like an unlikely
couple. He's a jeans and t-shirt guy, and Paige is a
sweater, scarf and skirt person. Maybe they have more in
common than they think?
Paige works at her father's PR firm in Los Angeles and as a
manager she can choose projects that interest her. Paige
loves to read and wants to be a part of the Literacy Now
project. She envisions famous authors meeting children and
encouraging them to read. Paige can't believe that her
sister Ariel has invited celebrities, not authors to the
program and that her father approves of the changes!
Shaughnessy guitarist Dylan Anders has completed his
required 90-day stay in rehab after a DUI. Rehab has had a
positive impact on Dylan; he's decided accept
responsibility for his behavior. Dylan understand he needs
to make some serious lifestyle changes -- he wants to be a
better man. Participating in the Literacy Now campaign
enables him to complete his required community service, help
others who struggle with reading and obtain some positive press.
Loved that Paige had no clue that Dylan was a famous
musician. Her first impression of the scruffy, tattooed bass
player isn't positive. She is sure that the only reason
Dylan is joining the project is to complete his three-month
community service requirement. Paige is floored when she
learns that Dylan understands what she is trying to
accomplish with Literacy Now and that Dylan is an avid
reader. Loved that Dylan did not judge Paige and he took the
time to listen to her. As Dylan and Paige's relationship
evolved, it was apparent through Dylan's actions that he
was committed to be a better man. In my opinion, this
compelling character choice moved this book from a good to
an excellent read.
The secondary characters add so much color to the novel.
Samantha Chase's depiction of Ariel is spot on. The
author's description of the sister's rivalry and their
back and forth banter gave the reader insight as to Paige's
family and work environment. Loved Daisy—Paige's loyal
assistant. She adds a lot of humor to the story. Loved that
Dylan and Paige connected with the Shaughnessy band members
and that Paige saw Dylan's devotion to his music.
I enjoyed that the romance between the couple developed
slowly—at first Paige and Dylan resisted their attraction to
each other. Both characters struggled with their own
insecurities which made their journey towards happiness
relatable to me. Loved the superbly written conclusion to
ONE MORE PROMISE. There are several compelling plot twists
and a few surprises in this emotional story which is full of
drama, heartbreak, forgiveness and most of all love.
ONE MORE PROMISE has it all the feels--captivating
characters, family drama, and a heartwarming romance! And I
guarantee that you will fall in love with former bad boy
rock star Dylan and the woman who inspires his desire to change.
Ambitious Paige Walters is ecstatic when she’s hired to
recruit musicians for a literacy campaign—it’s her chance to
prove she’s got the chops to make it in the family business.
She rolls up her sleeves and gets ready to make this the
best campaign ever.
Fallen idol Dylan Anders catches wind of the project and
thinks it’d be the perfect way to redeem himself. Paige is
less than thrilled that Dylan is using the cause for his
personal gain—and she makes it clear. But as the campaign
has them working side by side, their attraction grows. And
so do their challenges...
