Product Description

It’s the romance novel you’ve been waiting for

Promise Me is book three in the Alexa Reed series by Amazon bestselling author Hilary Wynne.

Alexa Reed finally has it all: a new lease on life, a bright future with the man of her dreams, a job she loves, and a great group of friends. She believes in her own happiness again.

Is it too good to last?

Alexa’s bliss is short-lived when an unexpected situation threatens the love she and Julian share. Suddenly, she has to choose whether to STAY and HOLD ON, or run.

The pain is too much. She runs. She runs away from Julian and from a life she can no longer be a part of.

But love is never that simple and an unusual twist of fate leads them back to each other ... although everything is different.

They’ve changed.

Julian struggles to trust Alexa. She has a secret that threatens to ruin their fragile relationship. Alexa knows she has to tell Julian the truth, even if it destroys any chance of happiness.

They say love conquers all, but can it conquer betrayal from someone who has promised to love you forever?

Praise for Hold On (Book 2 of the Alexa Reed series)

Sometimes you can be so damaged that nothing can heal the destruction that has been caused your soul. But then sometimes if you are really blessed you will be given a second chance and that is what this installment of Alexa’s life is all about. While reading this book your emotions will run rampant with what ifs and why nots! The feelings that you experience as you read this story make an unforgettable impression on your heart and will not be easily forgotten. – Twin Sisters Rockin’ Book Reviews

Hilary Wynne has completely blown me away yet again! This series has quickly become a favorite of mine. I became emotionally attached to these characters in book 1 "Stay". This book was no different. In this book I cried a lot, got so frustrated and then said WTF. Hilary hits you with a twist you don't see coming. – Eye Candy Bookstore

5.0 out of 5 stars An EPIC Love Story 18 February 2015
By RorymLampley - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Julian and Alexis EPIC love story continues in book three.
Julian and Alexis relationship hasn't been one of ease. Just when you think they are finally going to have there Happily Ever After, more secrets tear them apart. Alexis never expected to find her home in Julian's arms, so hiding this secret from him was tearing her apart.

What happens one day you wake up thinking life couldn't be any better? You find out the one person you were the most certain about in life is keeping a secret from you. A secret so big that it rocks you to the core and you stop believing in what you thought you knew.

After finding out the secret that Alexis was keeping from him, Julian's life comes to a screeching halt. You see a more darker, moodier side of Julian. The love this man carries in his heart is still there but it is heavily guarded. Julian is numb so he pushes Alexis away in order to protect himself. Alexis on the other hand was a woman whose heart was a deep ocean of secrets, letting her past dictate her future. But with Julian's love she learns to Stay, Hold On, and Promise to never let go. Its during this time you see a more stronger, more confident woman. She endures Julian's moments of pushing her away with dignity. She reaches down deep and realizes that the tables have turned and she now has to be the one to hold their relationship together. She gives Julian what he needs most, something Julian always gave her....unwavering love!

This is a story of unfailing acceptance and unconditional love. A story that brings hope and love regardless of the twists and turns of life. A story of letting go and learning to forgive. "Promise Me," by Hilary Wynne is a book like no other. The story is EPIC, the author is EPIC.
Rarely does a reader get to read a story that love is displayed by the characters so simply and yet so complicated. This story is life altering, gripping, breathtaking, heartfelt, and one of the most intriguing series that I have ever read. I will forever be a fan of Ms. Wynne's and will read anything that she writes. As a writer Ms. Wynne is in a league of her own! She is EPIC.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite of mine 18 February 2015
By Jennifer Michael - Published on

*There are spoilers if you haven't read books 1 and 2.

Promise Me is book three in the Alexa Reed Series and may or may not be the final in the series (Hilary may or may not be toying with the idea of a fourth book). Julian and Alexa have been on a wild, up and down journey towards epic and I believe you will all love their ride to get there. This is a story of love, self-growth, friendship, and the fight for the love that we deserve.

“Jerry… the test results please?! Don’t keep us waiting any longer!” Drumroll… “Julian Bauer, you are NOT the father!” And with my over active imaginations enactment of that story line, we pick up in Promise Me where Hold on left off, springing back into the lives of one of my favorite fictional couples. Julian and Alexa have work to do, individually and together, but stay, hold on and I promise you, you’ll enjoy the ride (puns intended).

Julian has an amazing ability to read Lexie; emotionally, physically, sexually, and materialistically. This is one of my favorite things about him. Who wouldn’t want a man who can give you the exact toe-curling orgasm you’re looking for and pick out a pair of shoes every girl on the street will envy as you walk by. Any sane woman, that’s who. We see a little bit of a darker side to Julian in this book, stemming from his fear of losing Lexie and his fear that she is just going to keep running and breaking his heart. Julian is strong and has the patience of saint but he is also stubborn and prideful. It’s time for him to receive some of the reassurance he has always provided Lexie.

“More than anything it hurts me to know I’ve made you doubt yourself. You’re the most amazing, loving, loyal, strong and patient man I’ve ever known, will ever know. You didn’t make one wrong step Julian. Since the moment I met you I didn’t feel worthy of your love. You gave me your love and despite all my craziness, you still wanted me. I couldn’t understand why and to be honest I still struggle with those feelings of doubt. You’re everything I’ve ever wanted in my life and everything I convinced myself I would never have. I understand how you feel about me and about all of this and as much as it sucks, I can’t blame you for how you feel. I didn’t fight for us when you needed me and I will always, always, regret that. But I’m fighting for us now and I’ll continue to fight until you either believe in your heart we’re meant to be together, or you ask me to leave. I won’t leave you, Julian. I promise.”

In the Facebook community of groups and one on one contact I hear chatter about different books and I see the love and the criticism of the writing, plot, and characters among people looking for their next book. I am a fan of Hilary’s and the Alexa Reed Series and I have seen chatter about how Alexa isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. I’ve heard that she is overly emotional and people don’t understand the running. I have never been one of these people; I can understand the fear of commitment, of being hurt, of letting people in. I understand how you feel when you’re dealing with something big, as Lexie has been. This series spans about a 8-month time and in the beginning Alexa wasn’t in a good place. I’ve heard criticism of how she deals. But I am telling you, I believe Promise Me will change these naysayers minds. Through this journey Alexa has overcome her demons and found strength to hold herself up high, and be able to be there for the others in her life. Alexa is tired of running and her time to be the rock has come.

Well I have stated my hatred for “He who must not be named” before, in previous reviews of this series. No, not that “He” guys, stay focused, wrong story! I’m talking about the Alexa Reed Series equivalent to Voldermort. Okay, okay, I guess I am being a little dramatic. I mean our villain here isn’t walking around performing unforgivable curses and trying to take over a whole world. But close enough. I don’t want to waste much time on "Puke" but I will say he does try to redeem himself with an act of selflessness to help Lexie… Well good, he should! CoughJ@ck@ssCough. Thanks, but not forgiven.

This novel has it all; a sizzling setting of South Beach, an alpha hotelier with a romantic side, sex scenes too hot to handle, amazing friends, and a couple finding strength in themselves and each other. I cried, laughed, got goose bumps, fist pumped, gave snotty looks at my kindle mocking Serena and Alejandra (b****es), and fell in love with Julian, with Alexa and Julian as a couple, and with the story. This is a series you should not miss and I do hope we haven't seen the last of all these characters yet. Pre-order your copy now and see the epic ever after for Julian and Lexie.
5.0 out of 5 stars If you STAY and read this series HOLD ON because I PROMISE it will be EPIC! Happy reading! 25 August 2015

Epic = MONUMENTAL = this amazing story between Lexi and Julian. Have you read Stay and Hold On? If not they are a must read first. This series has everything you could ask for and more; in a story of love, forgiveness and love again. This is my review of book three.

Have you ever read a book that you just can’t put down? One where you are sitting at work and thinking about what you read and what could happen next? That’s Promise Me. I couldn’t wait to get home and get back to this story, like when your favorite show is on and you're dying to see what happens next! I absolutely LOVE Lexi and Julian, I love their journey in their relationship. Talk about a rollercoaster!! I mean one minute you're up and then your head diving into a spiral of insecurity and doubt, to loving beyond anything you thought possible. And so we start off with Lexi and Julian in a bad place, the baby issue…..(I am not one to give major details on my reviews so I won’t say more on that). What happens when Julian discovers the truth? Well, it doesn’t end well for the one who lied. Lexi, so torn, so sad. I feel so bad for her, this relationship is one that is put through so much you just don’t know how they will survive. I really love how Julian speaks in spanish at times to Lexi, it’s so sexy!! LOL (did not intend to rhyme there!) Julian is the most romantic man and yes, he is angry with Lexi for things that have happened and yes I was happy when he finally stopped and made her chase him. I love that he did that, I love that she did it! lol.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great series about two people who weren’t looking for love… 8 July 2015

3,5 Stars

This review is for the whole trilogy; Stay, Hold On and Promise Me. The story is about two people who aren’t looking for love. Both have their own reasons.. Alexa is a young, independent woman with a secret that makes it impossible to have a relationship. Julian is a wealthy, South Beach hotel owner who doesn’t do relationships, just sex. But for Alexa he’s willing to change.

My thoughts:
I really, really like Hilary Wynne’s writing. She draws you into a sensual, emotional world. I love the main couple and the side-characters. I do understand both Alexa and Julian, were they are coming from.. But sometimes they made me so mad.. I don’t like to spoiler anything for future readers but Julian and Alexa both could have done things different, react different, talk more about their feelings.. And they didn’t… I understand that as an author, you don’t always have a say in what your characters do.. So I don’t blame this on Hilary Wynne, just on the two people in love who didn’t know what to do..

Will I buy future books of Hilary Wynne? Definitely yes! She knows how to tell a great story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julian is Back!!! 18 February 2015
By Brittany - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Julian and Alexa continue their story in book number three.
At the end of Hold On, Julian and Alexa have talked and decided they were going to try again. But there’s one giant problem that could make or break this relationship…
Alexa has grown throughout this series and now stands her ground when her and Julian start to argue. She believes in their relationship and wants it to work.
But things come to a crashing halt one morning as Julian was making breakfast.
Imagine your life and everything you know it to be changes in an instant. One sentence, one admittance just breaks it all. The person whom you thought would love you unconditionally turns their back on you and you’re just cohabitating. There’s no love, there’s nothing worth fighting for.
Except Alexa knew things could be better. She stuck around, waiting for Julian to realize that what they have is epic and extraordinary. Will Julian finally come around and realize that love is enough?
AHHH. I LOVE Hilary Wynne. I remember the first time I read Stay. I fell in love with the story, with the characters. I became captivated and enthralled. I was raptured by Julian and Alexa.
In Hold On, Hilary had my heart racing, my butt on the edge of the chair. My knuckles were white from gripping my Kindle so hard. Hilary knew what it would take for the readers to feel suspense.
And she does the exact same thing in Promise Me. Every turn of the page, you wonder if that’s the page where it all comes out. And then once that happens, you turn each page, hoping it’s the page where Julian realizes he’s being an ass.
I know a lot of people that read Stay and Hold On believed that Lexie was stupid and annoying for running all the time. Well, when you experience what she has and find the strength to stay, let me know how you do it. But that’s not the point here. In Promise Me, you can tell a HUGE change in Lexie. She’s strong, she’s a fighter. She’s grown in so many ways! There were moments where I mutter under my breath “Punch her!” And Lexie, being the strong woman she is, resists the urge and instead makes a witty comeback.
This book is definitely the best out of the three that Hilary has written so far. It’s suspenseful, definitely steamy and hot, and one that will keep you from sleeping at night. It’s a definite page turner! I highly recommend this book! You will not want to miss out on the conclusion (or is it?) of Alexa and Julian!
