The Commitment (The Promise Series #4) by Kate Benson
Release Date– 12/07/2014
This is Sophie and Chase’s story and it has quite of few bumps in the road.
I was a bit startled that this book starts with a bit of a mystery. Two pregnancy tests in the office bathroom, one positive, sends Chase and Drake (Chase’s cousin) on the run after Sophie and Ana (Jack’s sister).
The women are running out after getting a call to collect JT Sophie’s godson. Lucy is JT’s mother and has passed away from overconsumption of alcohol. This is the first point where I get confused, and I’m not sure of her relationship to the others.
Sophie is a bit volatile in her emotions. So it was quite interesting to see the trouble and sometimes hilarity she causes by blurting her feelings out. No filter there.
As Sophie prepares for her wedding, an interesting fact about Ana and Drake’s relationship other than the fact they are engaged is revealed.
With regard to Jack and Sophie, they were obviously together at one point and still sincerely care a lot for each other. I found myself with many questions about them.
The lives of the characters are so intricately woven that it took a bit to figure out the who’s who. This is made a bit easier by each chapter being in the POV of a specific character but I’m not sure I have the all relationships correct.
The couples in this book have intense relationships and the sex is hotter than hot.
Since I have so many questions about the characters, in spite of my enjoyment of the book, I have purchased the first three books of this series to get a better understanding of the all the stories.
I do not recommend this book as a starting point for the series. It really is not a standalone.
I give this book 3 contented purrs. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the series in order.
Sophie Ryan has not had an easy life.
In the past two years, she’s faced heartbreaking loss, gotten a rare second chance at unconditional love, revealed her darkest secrets and been forced to make unimaginable choices.
Dusting herself off time and time again, she’s always bounced back in the name of love.
After suffering yet another devastating blow, Sophie is faced with the choice of fight or flight.
With forces and emotions from her past still in play, will she find that some promises are made to be broken?
Or will she finally make the commitment it takes to find the forever she’s been searching for?
