Tour & Book Review – Promise by RJ Scott

A big welcome to RJ Scott as part of her review tour with Signal Boost Promotions for Promise.

Review

Reading this series is like catching up with old friends, while making new ones. Although this story is Leo and Jason’s, Leo’s former housemates Sean and Eric still play a decent sized role in the series, and I enjoyed catching up with them a while after the events of their books. I love the friendship between the three men. It’s obvious by their actions and banter that they are close, know each other well, and have each other’s backs. I’m enjoying how that is expanding to include their partners/husbands and families.

I enjoyed this latest addition to the series, and loved Leo and Jason together. I liked that they were both hesitant and Jason’s slowness to trust made a lot of sense considering everything he’d been through. His fear of being found by the wrong people, and losing Daisy feels very real. I loved how Leo slowly thawed Jason’s heart, and how he and Cap were able to get both Jason and Daisy to trust.

Cap deserves a special mention. His scenes with everyone, and especially Daisy, are adorable.

I liked how this story delved more into Leo’s past, and his PTSD and how it didn’t shy away from some of the nastier side of being a cop. I loved his family and his relationship with his brothers. His mother is a force to be reckoned with. I loved Jason as a new dad, with him and Daisy still getting to know each other, yet already each other’s world. Although this story is about their growing relationship, it’s also very much about them growing a family with Daisy. This story has a very strong family vibe, not just with Leo, Jason, and Daisy but with Leo’s relationship with Sean and Eric too.

I loved the ending—it made me happy.

I’d recommend this story to readers who enjoy a feel good romance with realistic characters, a strong family vibe, and a dog who is a character in his own right. 5 out of 5 stars.

Blurb

Leo Byrne is a cop, Jason Banks is an ex-con. Even after one stolen kiss, something has to give before Leo can convince Jason that falling in love is even an option.


Adopted at a young age, Leo is part of the sprawling Byrnes family. With his dog Cap, three siblings and a whole mess of nieces and nephews, he is never lonely, and his life is full. Love is the last item on his to-do list, but seeing his best friends Sean and Eric happy and making new families makes him want things he doesn’t think is possible. Kissing Jason at an event to honor his bravery was one thing, but anything other than that is off limits. Until Jason has no one left to turn to, and it’s Leo who helps him at his lowest. Taking Jason and his daughter into his home is one thing, but falling for the ex-con is something else altogether.


Jason made a deal to keep his daughter safe and spent years behind bars as a result. Volunteering as a convict firefighter was as much about helping the community as saving his sanity, but now that he’s out, he doesn’t even have that. He’s lost his future, his self-respect, and has no friends or a place to call home. Worst of all, even after rescuing his daughter he still can’t keep her safe from the man who wants to use her as a bargaining chip for money. Meeting Leo might give Jason a way to keep Daisy safe, but falling for the stubborn cop means the truth has to be revealed, and he could lose everything all over again.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
