"Beating the odds"
Reviewed by Helen Williams
Posted February 9, 2018
ONE MORE PROMISE is the second book in the new series Shaughnessy Brothers:
Band on the Run which is a spin-off of the Shaughnessy Brothers
Series. The band has taken a break from each other. Bass
player Dylan Anders has literally crashed and burned due to
his drinking problem. His long history of drinking and
partying while in the band results in him driving while
under the influence and crashing his car into another and
injuring someone. And the consequences are that he now has
to make amends. One of those stipulations is that he has to
do community service. He has to work with The Literacy Now
Program which is a charity benefit organized by Paige
Walters. This program is very special to Paige, and she
really wants it to be a success. But when she meets the
fallen rock star she has an immediate dislike to him and
forms her own opinions regarding him.
Dylan knows he has a long way to go to prove to himself and
others that he can change his past and become a new person.
This will prove to be an uphill battle when his past keeps
getting thrown in his face. Paige has always been trying to
prove herself to her family. She has always been on the
outside looking in. Her sister always gets the credit for
all the success even though Paige is the one who comes
behind her to clean up whatever mess she makes.
Samantha Chase as always does a wonderful job in writing
about the realities of life and the consequences. She talks
about the seriousness of alcohol dependency and how it
affects a person's life. She also does a wonderful job in
showing how a person can have low self-esteem when they feel
like they don't fit it. Paige and Dylan have been trying to
prove to others that they belong. Now they have to take a
stand for each other and go for what they want.
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...
