Sunny Shelly’s Review: Cruel Promises by Tori Fox


RELEASE DATE: December 20th

My entire life I’ve felt like I’ve been paying a penance.

I never thought I deserved this. A rockstar in one of the biggest bands in the world.

My life consisted of parties and women until one thing changed everything.

I was going to be a dad.

I never wanted a family. I was fine on my own.

Until her.

Until I couldn’t get enough.

Until she was the one thing always on my mind.

She is changing the way I think. Giving me a new outlook on life. One I can almost taste.

But things can change in the blink of an eye.

And promises made can turn cruel.

I should have known I’d never get a happy ending.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

In all honesty, I’m not sure what to think about Cruel Promises. Mostly because I didn’t think that the title fit the story and I struggled with the pacing and some plot points.

Marley and Silas were definitely the quintessential good girl/bad boy combo — the pastor’s daughter gets knocked up by the manwhore rockstar from a one-night stand. Things do not go well when Marley shows up to tell him that she’s pregnant, but Silas eventually does right by her. And a genuine friendship forms between them that then turns romantic.

But I just never felt that *sizzle* that I wanted to between Marley and Silas. And when things between them fell apart toward the end of the story, I felt like it was a bit disjointed and then very rushed when they reunited. I just wanted more from these characters and the story, and I felt like it was a letdown.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
