At eighteen-years-old, I made a promise with my best friend in high school. If neither one of us were married by age thirty-two, we would marry each other. Now Miles Warner is back in town and wants to cash in on that promise we made all those years ago. 

The fact that Miles is still unmarried and single baffles me. The young man I remembered from high school has grown into one of the most handsome men I've ever laid eyes on. And he refuses to take no for an answer. You see, he needs a bride, and I'm his last resort. Romantic, isn't it?

Well, no thank you. That is not going to happen. 

At least that's what I keep telling myself. But as the days pass by and Miles settles back into life in our hometown, I find myself falling head over heels in love with him. Again. 

What is the lesson I've learned, you ask? 

Nevermake a promise you don't intend to keep.

    This was such a fantastic read and exactly what I needed! It was sweet and sexy with just the perfect amount of angst! Miles and Kynslee were the absolute perfect couple - even though there were a few times that I wanted to punch Miles in the face! Thankfully, Kynslee did that for me!! 🤣 I loved watching their love open up and blossom - knowing that they both felt the exact same way for each other but we’re just too afraid to say the words. It was hard to feel Kynslee’s pain each time that she felt that Miles was only using her but it made it that much sweeter when confessed and proved his love for her was true and pure and that he had loved her for forever, just as she had him!! Such a fantastic read!! ♥️ Delicate Promises is the 2nd book in the Southern Bride series but they aren’t connected in any way so they can be read in any order. Although, if you haven’t read the first one, At First Sight, I absolutely highly recommend that you read it! It is another 5 ⭐️ read!!

    KELLY DOES IT AGAIN! Miles and Kynslee have been best friends since they were kids, and throughout the years they have leaned on each other through the hard times and supported each other through the great ones. But after high school, Miles decides to go into the armed forces, leaving Kynslee devastated. They make a pact to get married by the time they’re thirty if they’re both single, and over the years while they both spend time with other people, end up still being single at thirty. I honestly can’t say enough great things not only about Kelly but also about this book! Without giving much away, the pact becomes somewhat of an issue between them, but it’s really just because Miles is acting like a typical guy. This is a total friends to lovers type of storyline, but really these two are soul mates and you can tell in the prologue that their story will be a little rocky but well worth it in the end. Two strong characters make the book and I just absolutely adored it! I can’t wait for the next book in this series, especially because these are somewhat stand alones. While they are part of this series, the books themselves don’t intersect at all, so it makes it interesting to see the similarities and why Kelly grouped them together. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
