I have been, not so patiently, awaiting this book in the series for what seems like forever. You do have to read the first two books in the series to understand the dynamic that you're getting with this book. I absolutely love Julian and Alexa's story and was anxious to know what would happen next; especially after the way the last book ended.

Promise Me picks up right where Hold On finishes; with Julian and Lexie reconciling and promising their love to one another. I loved how strong Lexie was

Overall Rating: 5 Rockin’ ★★★★★

If two people are meant to be together, eventually they’ll find their way!

Sometimes loving someone is not as easy as it should be. Alexa and Julian have struggled to find a way to their HEA! This is the final chapter in their story or maybe it’s just the beginning of their life together. Promise Me, by author Hilary Wynne is the third book in the Alexa Reed trilogy. The author once again revisits the journey her two main characters are on to find each other.

This series has been amazing from the beginning. This book was absolutely my favorite of the series and was definitely an "Epic" ending to this fantastic series. Hilary Wynne completely blew this one out of the water and I can't wait to see what she does next.

I fell head over his with Julian in book one and have continued to fall even harder throughout this series. Everytime he talks Spanish I get weak in the knees. Alexa is definitely one of my favorite leading ladies. She is a broken girl who

Lexie and Julian are back and better than ever! I've been hanging by a thread waiting to see how Hilary was going to wrap up the Alexa Reed series in book three, Promise Me. As soon as I saw my ARC come across my kindle, I dropped everything else. Julian waits for no one!

After all the drama and heartache these characters have gone through, I was looking for a little peace and quiet in their lives. But in true Lexie and Julian fashion, they have to work to get there. **Please note the rest of th

*ARC Review for Crazy Daisy Book Whore by Megan*

Get ready to feel, because Hilary has done it again! From angst and uncertainty to bliss and epic love, I felt every emotion of the characters in this book. It left me raw, ripped me apart, and put me back together in the beautifully woven ending to Lexie and Julian's love story.

Lexie and Julian have never had it easy, and this book is no exception. We were left hanging at the end of book 2 with the news of Caroline's baby and Lexie no

Oh boy, Hilary did it again. Promise Me is EPIC!!! You will laugh, you will cry and you will want to scream and throw your book/reading device, and I went through all of these emotions within the first 15% of the book, and they continued throughout the whole book.

You will get to see a different side of Alexa, a stronger side, at the same time you'll get to see a softer more vulnerable side of Julian. It definitely made for a gr

I received an ARC of this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.

I always love the endings of great love stories. This trilogy is no different. As much as the other two were equally compelling, I would have to say I liked this book best. There's just something about the character's I've gotten to know getting their HEA that gets me everytime.

*There are spoilers if you haven't read books 1 and 2.

Promise Me is book three in the Alexa Reed Series and may or may not be the final in the series (Hilary may or may not be toying with the idea of a fourth book). Julian and Alexa have been on a wild, up and down journey towards epic and I believe you will all love their ride to get there. This is a story of love, self-growth, friendship, and the fight for the love that we deserve.

At the end of Hold On, Julian and Alexa have talked and decided they were going to try again. But there’s one giant problem that could make or break this relationship…
Alexa has grown throughout this series and now stands her ground when her and Julian start to argue. She believes in their relationship and wants it to work.
But things come to a crashing halt one morning as Julian was making breakfast.

This is book 3 in a 3 book series. After reading the first 2 books, I was so excited to get my hands on this one!! I read it in 3 days - I just couldn't put it down!!

We are back to the story of Alexa Reed and Julian Bauer. They are back together and all is fine - or is it? Lexie still has a secret that she has to tell Julian about. Then she has the dilemma - to tell him or not to tell him. It is tearing her up inside not to

I gave this book 5 stars.

Love this series and it is a must read if you love romance and Alexa and Julian's story is a wonderful compelling love story. These two characters have been through so much that they definitely deserve a happy ending. If you think that is all you're going to get in this book is a HEA then think again..

Oh my Hilary Wynne you did it again. I received an ARC of this novel and could not be happier! What a roller coaster ride. You laugh you cry you get mad and sad. You feel every bit of turmoil and pain these characters feel.You get to see a stronger more grown up Alexa. You see a vulnerable side to Julian. You will be on pins and needles until the end of the story. It eventually sinks in that no matter what life hands you everyone deserves love and to be happy. Secretly hoping for Book #4.

Epic series

Loved this series and the ending was so sweet. Would love to see one more book about Julian and Lexie as there are still a few unanswered questions about their future. Dual POV would be fact I would love to see many parts from these books from Julian's POV especially the times when they were broken up. Anyway, can't wait to read more from this author.

The epic love story of Alexa and Julian comes to an end in an amazing book.
“Promise Me” starts right where “Hold On” ended so you definitely have to read the first two books of the series.
Julian and Alexa are struggling with all the events that tear them apart.

I have to say...this series has been one of the best I've read. Alexa and Julian make the best couple and even though Alexa has her problems and tends to freak out over anything and EVERYTHING, Julian is always there for her and tolerates her running from him at all times. But when something unexpected happens with Julian, Alexa doesn't understand and runs from him and breaks it off with him. Julian is devastated that she won't st

Hilary’s first two books, Stay and Hold On, take you on an exciting, titillating, emotionally charged rollercoaster. The long wait for this next rollercoaster ride, Promise Me, is worth the wait and does not disappoint!
Hilary’s ability to capture and relay each character’s emotional development in such a realistic way is remarkable. In Promise Me, you see the growth and strength in Lexie. She is finally in a place in her heart, mind and soul where she does things rationally and thoughtfully, kn

I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever! I devoured Stay and Hold On, and needed more Julian and Alexa! Promise Me did not disappoint, and I really think this is the best book in the series!

We pick up where Hold On finished, and just when you think Alexa and Julian are going to get their crap together and everything is going to work, you are dead wrong. These two have a sort of role reversal in this book, and I loved it! Julian is the one distancing himself, questioning eve

First I must start out by saying Hilary blew this one completely out of the ball bark. I was literally left speechless and no matter what I say no words could do this book justice. Thank you Hilary for an absolutely breathtaking story.

First I'd like to say how privileged I feel to have been given an ARC to review by Hilary Wynne. As with the first two books in the Alexa Reed Series, I was unable to put Promise Me down.
The entire story is set in steamy south Florida, and with Hilarys descriptive writing I could practically feel the heat of the southern sun. Julian and Alexa have had a very tumultuous relationship. But when things were good between them, there was a different kind of heat. A heat that made my tummy flutter in d

This series was brilliant and read in three days.

Promise Me shows a change in both Julian & Alexa.

Julian is finding it hard to get past the Luke issue and looses his way for a while.

Alexa fights hard and digs deep for her true self to appear and along this journey builds back those strong bonds with family and friends and the love they share grows stronger and stronger.

Promise me was again very well written the only downside for me was the lack of an Epilogue which would have wrapped this seri

I first fell in love with Julian and Alexa’s story a few months ago after reading both Stay and Hold On so to say I have been anxiously awaiting Promise Me is definitely an understatement. The Alexa Reed series is a really great angst filled series that will have you not wanting to put your kindle down, except for the times you want it to throw it from frustration with these two.

This third and final book in The Alexa Reed series picks up right where we left off in Hold On so if
