REVIEW : Delicate Promises by Kelly Elliott


At eighteen-years-old, I made a promise with my best friend in high school. If neither one of us were married by age thirty-two, we would marry each other. Now Miles Warner is back in town and wants to cash in on that promise we made all those years ago.

The fact that Miles is still unmarried and single baffles me. The young man I remembered from high school has grown into one of the most handsome men I’ve ever laid eyes on. And he refuses to take no for an answer. You see, he needs a bride, and I’m his last resort. Romantic, isn’t it?

Well, no thank you. That is not going to happen.

At least that’s what I keep telling myself. But as the days pass by and Miles settles back into life in our hometown, I find myself falling head over heels in love with him. Again.

What is the lesson I’ve learned, you ask?

Never make a promise you don’t intend to keep.

Miles wasn’t my boyfriend. He was my best friend.

my review

I loved everything about this book, I seriously couldn’t put it down.

Miles and Kynslee have been best friends forever, they were each other’s first and at 18 they made a promise to each other. Flash forward 12 years and Miles intends to cash in on that promise. However, Kynslee isn’t so happy with Miles being back and just assuming that she would immediately agree to his proposal.

I loved Miles and Kyns so much. Their relationship was built on a great foundation of friendship, they had so much chemistry and could feel the love between them. They both had fears, specifically Miles and while he was kind of idiot about it, I also got where he was coming from and his reasons. Their relationship and friendship are so sweet and so beautiful.

This book is sweet and swoon worthy, especially when it comes to Miles (hello, a Cowboy and a Marine), but it also had me laughing. I loved their families and friends, but also a certain Rooster.

If you’re looking for a sweet, best friends to lover’s romance with a few laughs this is definitely one to read. Kelly Elliott NEVER disappoints her with stories. A MUST READ!
