Review: Jeremy's Promise by A.R. Talley with Giveaway and Excerpt

Jeremy's Promise (1) 

Jeremy's PromiseJeremy's Promise by A.R. Talley
The trip that was meant to save Annie and Jeremy’s marriage brought it to near ruin. Now Annie has returned home, frightened and confused. Jeremy, too, is frightened—and angry. What will it take to save their marriage? It’s clear. Jeremy needs to forgive—Annie needs to forget. A promise is made. A tragedy occurs. A second honeymoon is disrupted. A chance encounter brings David Andrews back into Annie’s life. Annie is determined to remain faithful. She’s made a promise she intends to keep—Jeremy’s Promise. 

My Review
I was left feeling very emotional after David's Song and wasn't sure what was going to happen. If you haven't read that one, be sure to read it first!

Jeremy and Annie's marriage is very fragile after the events that happened in David's Song. I really enjoyed the flow of the story and the way they figured things out and resolved their issues. Jeremy is a great guy--one who really does think of Annie and her happiness. He seems a little insecure and the promise he extracts from Annie proves exactly that.

Annie made a big decision at the end of the first book and what I love about her is that once her mind is made up, she will be whatever it takes to push through and find happiness in her situation. Of course, it takes a lot of hard work, but I love that tenacity. She was very stubborn in some ways, which was frustrating.

I thought this book would wrap things up, but it left things open for more. I love the new characters that were introduced and getting to know the characters I knew before in a deeper way. I have to find out how it will all end! As before, I think this author has a fabulous way of weaving a story, while evoking strong emotions.

Content: Clean romance (implied relations between a married couple with no descriptions, kissing); no language or violence; Mild religious elements--brief talks of prayer, church, LDS missions--no descriptions)

He regarded me with a cool stare. Up close, he looked different, still the composed, attractive superstar, but his eyes were different. They were still the brilliant blue that I remembered, but they were hard, more like ice than sparkling water. His face was unshaven, dark stubble around his jaw. I had this irresistible urge to reach up and rub his cheek.
                “What’s the matter, Annie, afraid to take a risk?” he said coldly. I met his gaze head on, defenses in place.
                “You know me,” I replied, trying to be as sweet as possible, “I never was much of a risk taker.”
                “No, as I recall, you err on the side of safety every time.”
                “Better safe than sorry… it’s my motto.”
                “And how does that work for you?”
                “Quite well, Dr. Phil—I only get into trouble when I flirt with risk.”
                “Um… are we talking about rock climbing—or something else? I’m confused,” Carolyn interjected.
