About the Author

Elle Brooks is a little neurotic; she functions on a tiny amount of sleep and a huge amount of caffeine. Elle loves green skittles and has an irrational fear of stormy weather. When she's not writing about super hot dreamy leading men, you can generally find her googling them... all in the name of research of course. She can be persuaded to do just about anything with the promise of a good book or a bottle of bubbles. Oh, and she also love to write.

I loved the first two books in the series. They were all about showing and feeling as opposed to telling me what to feel. I felt the characters happiness and pain. They became mine. I thought I would experience Emily's story as well. Unfortunately I just didn't. She never felt real. I really felt nothing about the story other than sadness, and even that was muted or lacking intensity. I did not cry or even tear up as I read her story even though she died young. She suffered was well although I did not feel her pain because that was glossed over.

The thing that bothered me about the story was her lack of relationship with Lucas. Based on reading the other books I thought that she would have this deep relationship with Lucas, the only boy she loved and visa versa. However she didn't. They met too late for that to happen. There was no time for those feeling to develop. He promised her that he would make her fall in love with him and her saying that she did at the end seemed hollow. That was one of the ways that the title was fitting,that his promise was empty. It was just words, as was her claim that she did. Until the end of the story she believed that Ethan, the hero of the first two stories and her long time obsession that she barely spoke to, was the boy that she wanted. She and Lucas went on only a few dates. They did not see each other much. Lucas felt like there was too much that he did not know about her. My reaction to reading about Lucas' future was mild sadness the same as it was reading about her. She never got to experience grand passion. She never got to do more than kissing. Physically never felt anything beyond than mild pleasure. Her final days were glossed over and her death scene did not happen.

The story title felt fitting In another way as well. I felt empty after reading the story. However the feeling was fleeting, only staying with me for a few minutes after I finished the book.

Need more than 5 stars ..... Amazon we need more stars!

Book 3 but really this can be read before book one or even after book two.

I read this book about a month ago as I beta read it and I still cant find the right words to describe how amazing this book is. If you have read the first two books then you know Emily's story - mostly.

Elle has taken a tough subject and treated it with such respect. The characters Elle has given us are so perfectly written - you laugh with them, you love with them and you cry with them ....boy do you cry.

Although my heart ached for Emily, it was shattered into pieces by Lucas - he might even be more perfect than Ethan!

I urge everyone to read these books - they are too me perfection. I wish I had an ounce of Elle's talent.

This is Emily's story, she is Blair's best friend from Promises Hurt. Although the reader knows about Emily through Blair, Emily's story still captured my heart with her own voice. It's obvious why she and Blair are best friends, they trust each other 100% and always have a good laugh together. Being sick was hard for Emily and everyone around her, she had hopes and dreams like anyone else and time wasn't on her side. I loved reading about her and Blair hanging out, along with Brie and Casey. Yes, Emily has a huge crush on Ethan Jamison, she almost can't remember when she didn't have a crush on him. However, Ethan hasn't been noticing her the way that Emily hopes and she's got a list of things she wants to fulfill. With Blair's help, Emily crosses a few things off. I loved how this was written, because Emily experiences a full range of emotions and she's an awesome person. It's obvious why she's so adored by her friends and parents. She's caring, considerate, funny and she's real about everything she's feeling and experiencing. The scene at the bridal shop was so sweet. Then there's Lucas, someone Emily has the fortunate opportunity to meet, and if I thought I adored Ethan, Wow!, Lucas could give Ethan a run for his money. Lucas is very forward, but also gentle and hard to resist with what he wants with Emily and as their friendship progresses, Emily is able to accomplish more things on her list. I think the part that held my heart the most was knowing that Emily caught someone's eye, and not just anyone, because Lucas is amazing, but that he made sure she knew how incredibly special she was. The ending is already known from Blair's story, but what Blair didn't know was that Emily finally got her most important wish.

I was privileged with an ARC of this book by the fabulous Elle Brooks and I've got to say, you better have the tissues handy for this one. It's sweet, tender, loving, scary, and heartbreaking. I bawled my eyes out ... no lie. This book touched deep inside of me and is still with me weeks later.

I took time away from the book before I wrote a review because I wasn't sure what to say without giving things away. The entire Promises series is fantastic and it's one I'm constantly recommending to anyone who will listen. Elle Brooks has an amazing gift. She can write a story that becomes so vivid and true that we can see and feel it. If you haven't read anything by Elle, you NEED to. But be prepared for the feels... there'll be LOTS of them!
