The previous book left me hanging on a major cliff !!! So, of course, I couldn't wait to jump into this one and see what was gonna happen next. I definitely started this one on the edge of my seat already... Normally there is a bit of a build-up, but with where the previous book left us, I didn't expect anything less...

Things did calm down though and I think with all that has happened in the first book, that it wasn't so bad to have a bit of a slower pace in this one. I also very much enjoyed

This book was amazing, This story just keeps getting better and better. The angst and the heat and all the drama that involved with this book is awesome. I love Clint and Rae so much. And the side characters add so much to the story. That cliffhanger has me hanging for the next book. Hope there will be a happy ever after in the last book. Everyone needs to read this book.

Promise Me doesn’t go from zero to 60 in two seconds, no... it starts right off at 60 out of the gate and just hits the ground running!

My heart was pounding right away, living in Rae’s shoes as she frantically did everything she could to save Clint. Then after, my heart was breaking right along with hers as things moved to the hospital. Eventually the story progresses, bringing my heartbeat to a more suitable rate.

I think we all can agree that Howard Clarke continues being the worst dad of

Promise Me is the follow up to Rebel Hart's debut novel Play With Me, and I promise you will not be disappointed by this book.

We catch up with Rae and Clint right where book number 1 left off with Clint going over the railing into the water below. We see just how far Rae is willing to go when someone she cares for is in trouble. It is a true testament to her character just how caring she is even when the world keeps throwing her down.

We get to see Clint and Rae's relationship grow, and

Noooooo Clint! Why would you do this?
This book is a LOT slower than the first, with more focus on the development of relationships. We see changes in Clint’s relationship with Cecelia, get some of her backstory, and see the changes in his demeanor towards other people, overall.
He forms a bit of a friendship with Michael, and Allison as well, and seems to leave Roy and Marina behind, although only time will tell.
Rae & Clint also grow, both as individuals and a couple in this book. They learn

Wow. Just wow. We pick up right where Play With Me left off. My heart was in my throat, silently praying for Clint. Hating his father. Wishing I could be there for Rae and falling a little bit for Michael. Just because he’s pretty damn amazing. Rae and Clint’s relationship heats up. I didn’t think that was possible. These two are fire and ice. When one burns hot, the other soothes the fire. They’ve been through so much. Nothing can stop them now, right? Of course, we end on another cliffhanger ...more

Gahhhhh, its killing me that this is a cliffhanger!!!! I need more!!!!

Rae and Clinton, geez, these two, they are so everything to each other. This dives right into where book 1 left off. This is a total page turner. I am loving how Clinton is now seeing what having people care about you, real friends in your corner. Clinton is coming around and wants more things out of life. Near death experience changes his whole perspective and he's trying really hard to recover, get strong and needs Rae with

Brilliantly fantastic. Gut wrenching read. I Absalutely loved Promise Me. Fab second book. The story pick up directly where book one "Play With me" ended.

I over joyed to know there is going to be a third book and cant wait to join Clint and rea's in their story some time soon.

Superb ending, i did not see that coming but it has me daydreaming up all kinds of scenarios of what book 3 is going to spring on us.

I love Rebels writing style, her ability to creat this world that just sucks you right In

This book was absolutely amazing! This story just keeps sucking me in deeper and deeper. The angst and the heat and all the drama is killing me even while it gives me life. I love Clint and Rae so much. And the side characters add so much to the story. I am dying after this latest cliffhanger. There better be some justice and revenge and happy ever after in the last book. I need all the revenge. Then I need all the happy. And everyone needs to read this book right now!

I read this an an ARC.

You need to have read book 1. This book was amazing it had all the emotional heartbreak and teen angst. It had two teens who fought for each other and to overcome their personal trauma and personal pain. Ends in a cliffhanger that may just break you. Being on the final instalment. This is a series you must read.

Promise me is the second book in the Diamond in the rough series and it didn't disappoint at all! We start at the begging right where book two ended. In this book we get to learn more about Clint and his home, see more of his father's a**h*** ways, and we also see his step mom Cecilia show more strength in this book. She has to have it to deal with Clint's father.
Im not sure if its due to the incident at the end of bk1 and beginning of bk2 that has me seeing Clint in a different light and also

As the second book in the Diamond In The Rough Series she took my emotions and twisted them. I felt like they were in a grinder the whole time I was reading this. She literally left me wanting more and more.
As a follow up to the first book in series(Play With Me) this book did not disappoint. Sometimes I think as new authors it’s hard for them to write a second book and still be able to fully capture the magic of the first book. But reading this follow up everything was still there. All the

Promise Me is book 2 in the series and starts up right where book 1 ends. The first few chapters were page turners and pulled you in with details of Clint and Rae both fighting for Clint's life. But to be honest, I did not like book two as much as book one so I ended on 3.5 stars for this one. I felt like book 1 had more action where book 2 moved slower. I also had issues with how the criminal case was handled, but that's just a pet peeve of mine when I read about legal situations in books and ...more

Desperation clings to the night like a heartbeat does to life. Nothing matters but saving him like he saved her.

Bravery and courage go hand in hand to bring him back to her. Hope and love give him strength to fight for tomorrow.

A guy like him and a girl like her were born to be free together, to ride the waves until the sea calmed but is it as simple as that...

What an explosive beginning and ending! Rebel hart is on fire with this trilogy!!

This is the second book and a direct continuation from

Promise Me picks up right where the cliffhanger from Play With Me left me biting my nails offs. I was on the edge of my seat when I started reading and things calmed down after the first few chapters.

While I enjoyed this book, I do feel it was a slower read with less nail biting action than the first in the series. Promise Me focused more on character development and relationship progression rather than drama which was a nice change of pace. I am happy to see Clint establishing a relationship

>Book review – Promise Me
>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 2nd in the Diamond in the Rough series and ends in a cliffhanger. This story continues the romance of Clint and Rae. Family is a big theme as Clint finds out he has a parent to count on in his stepmother. Rae really steps up to save him and her friends really come through to aid him in his recovery. The new Clint causes teachers, police and doctors to treat him better. Clint’s dad really showed his true colors in this

Before you can read Promise Me, you HAVE to have read book #1: Play With Me because this book literally picks up where the first one ended. Promise Me is also another cliff hanger and a heart wrenching one at that. In this book, we watch Cliff try to heal from the attempt made on his life. He finds a motherly figure in his step-mom, who finally steps up for him as an adult should. Michael and Allison show Clint what true friendship is about. I feel with Clint finally feeling and seeing these

Compelling love story


The storyline to this book is definitely letting us get a background view to the love they share and the support they have. It also outlines their obvious differences leaving you thinking will they survive all that’s trying to pull them apart. The cliffhanger to book has got me on the edge of my seat. I say Bring on ‘Stay with me’

Emotional, and steamy! 4.5 Stars

This is the second book in the Diamond in the Rough series, and the continuation of Clint, and Rae's story. We are taken on a ride, full of twists, and turns, and emotional highs, and lows, as we follow Clint, and Rae through this book. Clint still has to deal with his awful father, but his relationship with Rae is getting stronger, and steamier, and things with them seem to be improving. But just as things seem to be great, we are thrown a curve ball, and we end

What just happened... spoilerish

Book was even better than the first Clint and Rae are absolutely adorable together throughout the whole book. They’re there for each other 100% during their shitty home life. totally and completely in love with one another but to afraid to come clean about it. Typical romance story

Downside: a lot of small details didn’t add up throughout the book.. I’m pretty positive Rae was in some of Clint’s classing and now she wasn’t and the story had some holes along with a
