About this ebook

When worlds collide.

Devon Mattson has never been as captivated as he is by Olivia. She’s smart, witty and rich. But above all is the fact that even though they come from different worlds she understands him, his small town charm and his need for speed.

He knows that to be together they’ll both have to give up a lot, but he’s promised to always be there for her. Now, in college, and afterward too. Forever.

Olivia Carrington has never felt more alive than when she’s with Devon. She no longer feels the suffocating weight of expectations—just the freedom and support to follow her secret dreams and to become the person she’s always been afraid to be.

But when reality comes knocking their dream world begins to collapse. Will these two young lovers find their way back to each other or will their hearts become shattered beyond repair?

I went into this prequel knowing the main couple wouldn't end up together. I didn't want to read leaving them unhappy and only read it because I wanted to get to "the good stuff" in the next book. Oh my, poor kids. To fall so hard and still be pulled apart. What a great set up for the next book! As usual the characters are well done and the dialog, situations and reactions all seemed real and well paced.

The Promise is a prequal to The Wedding Surprise. Devon Mattson and Olivia Carrington comes from two different worlds. A chance meeting in college and their world collides and becomes one, until it doesn't. An unexpected pregnancy changes all of that. Olivia didn't have the strength or faith that they can do anything as long as they are together.

"The Promise" (Veils and Vows #0) by Jean Oram is a great read. I enjoyed the beginning of Devon and Olivia's story. I can't wait to see what happens next. I think this is an excellent start to the Blueberry Springs spinoff series Veils and Vows. Highly recommend to all fans of romance and series.
