☆ Promises of Forever Ã Download by ✓ Celya Bowers I really expected from this book I didn t feel the connection between Kayleigh and Finn.
Enjoyed the book but felt something was missing.

This was the first book I read that dealt with not only an interracial relationship, but also the main character handling a major medical situation I must commend the author in handling both situations with ease.
When it came to the relationship, she didn t make it the stereotypical families in an uproar because these two decided to date As a matter of fact both Kayleigh and Finn had someone of another race in their families or in her case her godfather , so it was never made an issue or a concern Second, the author s handling of Kayleigh s battle with Lupus She didn t make Kayleigh out to be a victim, or give her that feel sorry for me, cry all the time type of attitude As a matter of fact I think I felt concern for Kayleigh and what she was faced with then the characters demonstrated in the book The characters were likable and normal The situation they were handling, did not I put this book in my favorite books of all time category I read it once or twice a year It s so sweet and I really connected with Finn and Kayleigh just thinking of this book makes me smile I LOVED it, I cried several times, and I LOVE Finn he was sooo sweet and he took care of his women like a man in love should I LOVE interracial romance novels like this 4 stars for Kayleigh and Finn s story Lovely.
Just finished Promises of Foreverand I HONESTLY don t know how I feelit s a pretty GOOD readFinn is DEFINITELY a charming, caring, protective, loving TAKE CHARGE kinda manI really enjoy the care and concern he shows Kayleigh throughoutbut at times I must say I find Kayleigh to be a bit annoyingI just CAN T wrap my mind around the whole idea that her doctor tells her to take it easytake better care of herselfcut back on her activitiesyet she BLATANTLY refuses to do soit s like HELLOIF you want to liveIF you want to possibly beat this illnessyou MUST take better care of yourselfit would be a no brainer for meon top of that she has this WONDERFULLY giving man who WILLINGLY wants to take care of her illness, hang ups, and all and she still REFUSES to slow downand the little murder mystery doesn t really make sense to me seems unnecessary that being said, I did This a love story between a wealthy financial planner and an older college student He is a warm, considerate man, but I didn t get a true sense of what he saw in her You don t get a strong sense of their backgrounds as individuals The heroine s characterization needed to be much better She s going to college at age 35, but we re never told why she didn t go to college earlier Her parents weren t poor Her dad was an educated man who loved her very much Her background before she meets the hero is completely unfilled If she s willing to go back to college when she has a newly diagnosed serious health condition which requires mandatory bed rest, the reader should be told why it took her so long to finish her degree What held her up before when she wasn t sick This story could have been so much It had so much potential to be a great interracial love story, but it was
