All Shane Perkins ever wanted to be was a hero. But after a career-shattering decision to go down fighting, Shane comes home from the hospital to four empty walls, a pile of money, and a burning desire for someone to miss him the next time he gets hurt in the line of duty. He ends up an officer in the small town of Levee Oaks, and, addicted to the promise of family, he makes an effort to reconcile with his flighty, troubled sister. Kimmy makes her living as a dancer, and her partner steals Shane’s breath at first sight.

Mikhail Vasilyovitch Bayul dances like an angel, but his past is less than heavenly. Since he left Russia, he’s made only two promises: to stay off the streets and stay clean, and to take his mother someplace beautiful before she dies. Making promises to anybody else is completely out of the question – but then, Mikhail has never met anybody like Shane. Earnest, brave, and self-deprecating, Shane seems to speak Mikhail’s language, and no one is more surprised than Mikhail to find that keeping promises is Shane’s best talent of all.


Belens Audio Book Review

I worried before I started this. Mainly because it’s over fifteen hours long and after Keeping Promise Rock I honestly didn’t know if I had it in me if this story took the same kinds of twists and turns. I swear – Amy Lane can rip out my heart like few others.

This story is beautiful in its simplicity. It’s all about redemption, love, and, ultimately, finding home and family. I loved every aspect of this story. It touched a little piece of my soul, and I’m better for it.

Paul Morey’s narration isn’t perfect. He fumbles a little, and there are some flubs, but it doesn’t matter. He makes this story come to life in a way that absolutely respects the source material and brings these characters beautifully into full bloom.

I loved it. Even when it was breaking my heart, I loved it. This will immediately go to my “favorites” shelf and I know I will listen to, and read, this again and again because this story made me feel good. Warm and happy and oh-so-grateful for what I have.

I am a sarcastic, opinionated and filthy-mouthed book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I just love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), I like a little BDSM when I’m in the mood and love a good ménage story. I go hetero too…I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:
