SYNOPSIS: Wyatt Calloway isn’t a good idea. I didn’t pick up my life and move to this urban beach city to spend my days swooning over a rich bad boy who rides a motorcycle and seems to know every girl in town. I’m here to get to know the brother I’ve never met. To try and create a family when I’ve gone so long without one. Maybe find a place where I belong. So why can’t I seem to get him off my mind? Hannah Morrison isn’t a good idea. I’m back in town just for the summer, and my priorities are to spend time with my little sister, check in with my family, and make sure things aren’t really as bad as they seem. But somehow, the new girl becomes my focus. She’s got a heaping ton of baggage, and she doesn’t understand why she’s really here. But I’ll do anything to make her feel like she belongs. Even give her promises I’m not sure I can keep. Welcome to Hermosa Beach.
Promise Me Nothing is Book 1 in the Hermosa Beach Series!
This was an amazing start to the Hermosa beach series. Jillian Liota writes characters with such depth and wonderful emotional journeys. I was so invested in Wyatt and Hannah. Hannah‘s backstory–who she was and how her experiences shaped her–was so amazing. I admired her strength. Wyatt did some things that weren’t great, but he never did them with malicious intent, which was really important. There were parts of this book when these little things happened, and i knew I was going to be so happy with how it played out in the bigger picture. There’s just something about how Jillian writes these books that represent a real human experience, and have me totally invested. Also I loved Ivy, she was adorable and I loved seeing her and Hannah‘s relationship develop. Overall, I’m so excited to read the rest of the series and I think I’m gonna binge it right now!
