After reading "Tomorrow's Lies", I had so many emotions running through me. I couldn't stop crying and thinking about these characters. My heart ached so bad and I NEEDED closure. I'm so happy to report I got what I needed in "Today's Promises".

Flynn and Jaynie are finally free from their nightmare, reunited and are trying to start fresh. As to be expected their are some bumps and bruises along the way. Healing and closure doesn't come easy and they are existing and not living. They get a call

To say that I was excited about this book doesn’t even come close to how I felt after reading Tomorrow’s Lies. I am so happy I found a new favorite author because Ms. Grey’s books have been life changing! In Tomorrow’s Lies left you with so many emotions and my main emotion was hopeful! I felt like the end of that book was poetic and once you get to the end it was just amazing! Then to get more about their story was excellent and my mind went through many scenarios about how everything would pla ...more

"Today's Promises"
(Promises series book 2) by S.R. Grey

A wonderful second and final book to this series. "Today's Promises" caught the readers up with Jayne and Flynn and how they have been doing since leaving the foster care system. They are both struggling, at times, for their own reasons. They are trying to live a normal life despite all that they both have been through. At times they actually do feel that life is normal and settled. And for a time period it is. Yet, for a period of time, Ja

What an absolutely beautiful conclusion to Flynn and Jaynie's story. I was so moved by their story. The journey was a rough and bumpy ride but so worth it. The anxiety they felt daily to heal from their past, to protect each other against the threat of Allison Lowry and love each other above anything else was truly so emotional and heart wrenching.

Flynn and Jaynie escaped the horror of their foster home at the Lowry residents and through it all they remained each other's support. Dealing with o
Jaynie and Flynn are still just trying to make it through each day. Each day holds a new challenge for them to over come.
Jaynie is suffering from nightmares caused by the last foster home she went too. With those nightmares and hording food she has a lot deal with. With Flynn by her side though she can over come anything. There is a new development thay shakes these two and changes things.

I just to start off saying that I am in love with Flynn.

I have been waiting to read this book since I first read Tomorrow's Lies. I had good intentions of only reading a couple of chapters before I went to bed (I know better to start a new book at 10:45 at night) but ended up finishing the book in three hours as I could not put it down.

This picks off right where the last one left off and takes you on Flynn and Jaynie's path to recovery and healing.

S.R. Grey has once again written another heart wrenching read that tells the beautiful story of two people healing from the pain of their pasts and to move on with their lives together.

First off I want to say that I absolutely love this cover! It's so eye catching with the coloring in the background. I was so excited to read the conclusion to Flynn and Jaynie story and I was not disappointed.

Flynn and Jaynie both have nightmares stemming from the childhood they grew up in. They have each other to fight back the demons they both face and I loved how supportive they were of each other. This was such a good book and I loved every word of it. I loved the epilogue and being able to

I'd been waiting for Jaynie and Flynn's conclusion ever since I finished Tomorrow's Lies. I read it in one sitting. If ever two people deserved a HEA it's these two. Lots of twists and turns I never saw all. S.R. Grey did a good job at surprising me. And even though it was painful at times, I am so happy to have gotten to take this journey. Jaynie and Flynn's story will stay with me for a long time.

Another great read!

Once again, SR Grey has weaved her magic with another work of art. The Flynn and Jaynie love story is so intricately designed. The thoughts twined together takes through a journey of young love developed through adversity and withstands through to the promised land. This book makes me cheer!

This is the continuation of Flynn and Jaynie's story from Tomorrow's Lies and I was admittedly somewhat reluctant to read it. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to see if these two get their HEA, but the first book just about gutted me and I wasn't sure I had it in me to be ripped apart again.

Well, I'm here to tell you, I dove into this story and didn't come up until the very last page and while there were tears and heartache, there was also smiles a

Great read. We got to see Jaynie and Flynn get back together after what happen in book two. Glad the twins got placed with Mandy so happy about that. They all came along way from being mistreated and abuse.

Let me start by saying that I am glad I chose to read this book. I was a little hesitant after reading the first book, since I had mixed feelings about that book. But curiosity got the better of me and I had to know how Jaynie and Flynn’s story ended.

I was overall thrilled with how this story ended. I think the author did very well giving Jaynie and Flynn the life they deserved after everything these

Today's Promises by S.R. Grey was a truly beautiful story that showed me that no matter what life has thrown at you, there's always space for hope, always a chance to heal. Especially if that one special person is there to help you!

Being free doesn’t always mean what you would think. Just because you can walk down the street doesn’t mean that internally every step isn’t tearing you apart. Your true self, burdened and tormented, that is no way to live.
Flynn and Jaynie are together but at what cost? Can they survive the perils that are placed before them, they have faced hardship in the past but will they have to face it again?

Today's Promises is the beautiful, poignant conclusion to Flynn and Jaynie's love story and the Promises series. Like the first book, Tomorrow's Lies, it was suspenseful and riveting. Maybe even more so, in some ways. I read the two books back to back in one day. Yes, they were THAT good!

After reading 'Tomorrow's Lies' I was emotional drained and not sure if I could handle anymore with Today's Promises but my heart needed healing so I gave it a chance and I wasn't disappointed.

It's not until they get a call that changes everything they can finally heal and move on. Their love for each other was what g
