This book is book one in a three part series, so not all matters are resolved at the end of the novel. It is also meant for ages 18+ due to yummy adult content 😉 

Happily ever after doesn’t exist. Not just in the romantic sense, but in the sense that there will never be a point in life that will contain no more obstacles. 

Josie Sommers is a nerdy twenty four year old, elementary school teacher who has always considered herself a strong person. But with the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break. 

When he betrayed her in the ultimate way, she never thought she would let him back into her life, let alone open herself up to falling back in love with him. 
with resentment and the burden of her own dishonesty, Josie has to decide if forgiving and coming clean is worth the risk of losing him again. With so many hurdles, we know that Josie’s story is no fairytale. 

That’s a promise.

Emily’s Review:

That’s A Promise — 3.5 Delightfully Smiling Stars

I want to thank the author, Victoria Klahr, for sending us at Snarky Bloggers a copy of this book to read and review for an honest opinion.


Josie is a broken gal, really broken – over and over – physically, mentally, and emotionally. By strangers. By friends. By those she loved and trusted.

Seth is Josie’s best friend, her guardian angel and her rock. He teaches her there is love in the world.

Blake is tall handsome man, a stranger who stole her heart as she stole his. But he has a secret.

They all have secrets.

In this debut novel, by Victoria Klahr, we meet these well-developed characters. We fall in love with each one of them and at some points want to smack them upside the head and ask what the hell are they doing?! The story line is great. The characters interacted well. I did, however, find the flipping back-and-forth in time was a bit confusing at some points.

The story made me smile. It is a good read. I would have liked to see the adjectives mixed up a bit more as some were continuously said, for example his “big hard cock” was used just about every time she referred to his package. And also, to clean up some of the repetitiveness though out the book as there were many times she would think/explain what was going on and then say it in conversation as well.

The story line was a bit predictable at times, but still delightful. The sex in the book was mild but tastefully written. The last several chapters are what ensured I will be waiting to read the second novel of this series. We are left wondering what will happen next. Victoria leaves us trying to pick sides, team Seth or team Blake. Both are great guys who love Josie with all their heart, but which one Josie will pick is definitely up in the air at this point as there is so much more left to be figured out.


“You are gorgeous, as always, Josie.” He turned me around and brought his lips to mine. He kissed me slowly, and I could feel myself getting heated. He grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the bed. I was a little embarrassed when he started undressing us, unable to believe that I agreed to do something so risqué. He position me in a particular way, and went back to his cameras to make sure his shot was right and to set up timers on them.

“Okay, don’t think about the cameras,” he said, coming back to me. He started sucking on my neck as his hands roamed my thighs, stomach, and then my chest. I tried to ignore the cameras and focused on his tongue and mouth on me.

Click. He brought one of my breasts into his mouth and sucked on my hard nipple. His tongue always knew how to make my body feel good. Click. I moved my hands into his shaggy sandy blonde hair, and arched my back, needing more of him. Click. Seth aligned his chest with mine, and went back to assault my neck as I moved my hands to rub his shoulders and arms.  Click. His other hand that wasn’t fondling my breast, moved its way in between my legs, and rubbed me. I gasped at the feeling of increased pressure on my clit. Click.

His fingers really were magical. It didn’t take me long before both the pressure of his mouth on my neck and breasts and the rubbing of his fingers against me, made me come. Click.

“So sexy,” he whispered, before putting on the condom he had ready on the bed. His eyes were hooded with desire. He positioned himself in front of me and moved my long hair in a way that covered my breasts. Click. He eased inside of me gently, and then pulled back out fast. Click. He teased me like that for a while, as I whimpered with need. I decided to sit up and grab onto his back, nearly clawing him to finally give me what I needed. I started to raise my hips to his at a better rhythm, loving the small whimper that came out of his mouth. Click.
