OUT 5.0 out of 5 stars It was just perfect. Cam takes you on a journey from her ...

 I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

WOW!!!!!! Just Wow!!!! What a read. This had everything from angst, to romance, to cute fluff. It was just perfect.

Cam takes you on a journey from her heartbreak, to protecting herself, to letting herself love again. Michelle ‘Shelly’ Hamlin changes life for her, but has her own demons to deal with as an actress who hasn’t come out yet.

All they go through is so emotional, and the connection you can feel with both characters is strong. Your heart will break for both of them, hate their stubbornness at times, and just love them. It’s impossible not to! I want a Cam! Where can you get one?

Just brilliant! I would highly recommend this to anyone as a read that you won’t forget, and you will want a Cam, I can guarantee it! Can’t wait to read the next title in this series! 

The Promise 5.0 out of 5 stars. Do yourself a favour and read this book.

 If there were a higher rating than 5 stars this book would get it. Claire has written an amazingly though provoking, emotionally charged novel that deserves more than 5 stars! This one is right up there with romantic classics such as The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks and deserves serious recognition. You will likely cry as you read this book...but this deals with a subject that we all too often do not ever address or see do you lose your partner-how do you let yourself get swollowed up in your grief-and furthermore how do you heal and learn to move on carrying your loved one with you while still living without that person. I can't say anymore than wonderful things about this book. Just read it! You will not be disappointed. I loved the Cam Thomas duo, but this one-this one really made its way into my heart! Bravo CHS! 

NEXT 5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed!

  •  A fantastic sequel to Out. I always worry about sequels being anticlimactic however, with unexpected twists plus great characters, I wasn’t disappointed! I can’t wait for the next instalment!
