Review : Stealing Promises

Stealing Promises by Brina Courtney 

Genre: Contemporary, New Adult
Goodreads : Click

Amazon | B&N

Promises are made to be kept, never stolen. But that’s exactly what happened to Victoria Blane and Levi Manor. Tragedy strikes their perfect relationship leaving Victoria struggling to overcome the darkness that threatens to bury her.

With Victoria’s life in tatters she decides that running away is easier than dealing with her troubles. But when a friend finds her on the floor in her kitchen, she knows it’s time for a change.

Brighton Hanley knows what it’s like to lose someone. He knows what it’s like to be haunted by things that can never change. When he meets Victoria he recognizes the pain she’s trying to bury deep in her eyes. He knows she’s trying to run away, but he also knows that you can’t run forever.

Victoria is drawn to Brighton in ways she never expected. He becomes her champion, her life line… her sunshine in the darkness. But is Victoria ready to let go of the past and grab on to her future? Or will she run away from Brighton before she can be hurt again?

My Thoughts:

This was an interesting book about love loss and Victoria trying to save herself. I'm trying to find the words I want to say about this book. I liked it but I feel like the first half of the book was dragging then half way into the book was rushed. The relationship that developed with Victoria and Brighton felt rushed. I did enjoy seeing the relationship between Levi and Victoria.  Oh and the ending, it felt like something was missing, like that wasn't it. Although I wish there was more to this book I did find myself enjoying this book.
