It's unrequited + second chance at love romance between a country star & a songwriter who lost her sight and had to regain her independence.
I really enjoyed the heroine Mackenzie. She's very standoffish and stubborn but has a soft center. Loved her. The hero, I struggled quite a bit because he was so clueless but ugh, I personally think he grew as a character so ...more

That’s how the blurb starts and it’s the perfect way to describe this story, so I’m using it too. My God, what a ride! I’m emotionally spent after reading this. I didn’t expect it to be so touching, so emotional, so inspiring! EYE-OPENING!
There isn’t much I can tell you about the story, because it will be a pity to use any spoilers, but I can tell you this. You have a very famous country singer as a hero and ...more
I’ve been a fan of Marina’s books for a while and I was absolutely here for a second chance, BFF to more type of story.
I liked Mackenzie and Hunter well enough. They’re both stubborn and loyal, but genuinely good people who always want the best for those they care about. Brody was probably the best part of the story. I love how he handled things and was supportive, even if it meant giving someone a kick in the ass.
Plot wise it was okay. The slice of time felt forced and because everyt ...more
He was her greatest heartbreak. She was his biggest regret. When fate gives them a second chance will they let past mistakes ruin future happiness? Adair is the rarest of authors. She looks at love with a truthful heart and not a jaundiced eye. Promise Me You is not a watered down version of love's power, but a realistic one. Mackenzie waited too long and acted to late, which left her with a broken heart. Hunter is the one that got away. What happen ...more
There was a fair bit here to like. Both Mackenzie and Hunter are likeable characters and they are very good together. The physical progress of their relationship is slow, but it works because there’s a lot to deal with and they have great chemistry. I loved the music writing side of things and wished there’d been a bit m ...more

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: General Fiction (Adult) , Romance
I love second chance romances, love books about film stars, music stars so I really expected to love this book. It was an OK read, but missed out on that magic spark that makes a book unmissable for me.
I felt for Mackenzie, she's had a tough life and now its got a lot worse. I wouldn't say its a second chance romance though, as first time round it was all unrequited love on her side with Hu ...more
This is a book which will make you think, and consider how you would cope if your world was turned upside down by a diagnosis, and then suddenly changed forever. Mackenzie is doing the best she can with what life has dealt her, although her desire is to hide behind her front door and just get on with her music making.
Her one time best friend, and successful musician, Hunter is in need of a songwriter, and really wants t ...more
I seem to be very into romance books these days, and I really enjoyed this one.
It wasn't perfect and I had some issues with the plot, mainly the miscommunication between Hunter and Mackenzie, but overall this was a sweet read.
Received a free copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
But first, here’s what I loved:
1. Hunter is a quintessential cocky, swaggering musician hero. His confidence and talent make him sexy as hell. But what I REALLY loved about him was that he wasn’t manw ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. From the heartache and heartbreak of the first scene to the love and warmth of the last.
Mac has loved Hunter Kane for years. They have been writing songs together and have a bond that is seemingly unshakable. He's been her rock, held her hand when her mother passed away and helped her back from the brink after to losing her. Now, he's marrying the supposed love of his life and she can't be t ...more
Three years ago, Mackenzie walked away from her writing partner, best friend, and the unrequited love of her life, musician Hunter Kane. Believing it was the only way to save herself from the heartache of seeing Hunter marry, and saving him from her own complicated self, she disappears practically without a trace. So when their mutual friend and manager throws them back together, they find themselves at a bi ...more
3 years later, Mackenzie and Hunter are long due for a reunion but Mackenzie is not ready. Brody, stuck in the middle, will take Hunter's side and "force" the meeting. Even if they have songwritting in common, their world is so different that we don't know if they will make i ...more
