BLOG TOUR: Three Broken Promises – Monica Murphy + Review & giveaway!

Released: December 31st, 2013

Breakout New Adult sensation Monica Murphy returns with a hot new contemporary romance—a heartfelt story of second chances, forgiveness, and redemption.

Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life. 

I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.

"Sometimes we're put into situations we don't know how to get out of."

Intense and sweet. A simple read. Although I must admit I wasn't a huge fan of Jenny, Colin stole my heart. He just has such a broken and giving soul. The story itself was written pretty well and it unfolded very nicely and slowly. A great read.

Let's start off with the good part of this book.

Colin Wilder. Hot damn. This man is smoking hot. He could jump into my panties and I wouldn't even care. I would beg him to. And not only is he super good-looking, he's also such a sweetheart. He would do anything for Jenny. He loves her and cares for her so much.

But he has a disturbed mind when it comes to guilt. He still carries all the burden and weight of guilt that Danny's death had put on him. The only thing stopping himself from being fully forgiven is himself.

He doesn't think that he's good enough for Jenny and somehow I've always found that endearing. Although he could be really stubborn and an idiot at times, he's an idiot I came to adore.
She's the total opposite of me. Dark hair to my blonde, chocolate-brown eyes to my pale blue ones, sweet to my bastard-like ways.
Bastard? Hell no! Fucking sweet? Hell to the fucking yes!

And Jenny? Sweet? Hell no. Hell. Fucking. No. She was a huge pain in the ass for me. She wouldn't stop bitching and whining about how Colin doesn't give a shit about her or how he's only throwing her a pity party and treating her like a charity case.
I try to help her out and she throws my generosity in my face.
Usually, I wouldn't root for the guy if he said something as ridiculous as this. But I had to agree. That's what she kept on doing. Jen never seemed grateful for what Colin has done for her.
A man like Colin is always up for a no-strings affair.
Bitch, please. You did not just diss my man. Is that how you refer to a man who's saved your life? Who's given you everything? Who's given you a real life?

"Friends don't treat each other like they're trash. At least, not the ones I know." – Jen

God, I could go on and on about how annoying she is but I won't. The book overall was such a fantastic read. I loved Colin so much. He saved the whole book. The plot was so good and I thought that it would go so well if the female protagonist was less of a bitch.

Good read.
