Book Description

Sept. 6 2011
'I Must Stand Up for Myself More', promises Maggie Storm, who spends her days cleaning houses for people who often have more money than manners. Married to a man with as much sex appeal as Mr Blobby, she dreams of a life straight from the pages of a romantic novel.

'My Head Must Rule Over My Heart', promises Ella Moore, who, determined never to let her heart get the better of her again, is recovering from seven wasted years of failing to win over the daughter of the man with whom she wanted to spend the rest of her life.

'No More Women', promises Ethan Edwards, who, to distract himself from the depressing sham of his marriage, is a repeat offender when it comes to turning to other women for sexual consolation. But when Ella appears unexpectedly in his life, he finds himself turning to her for very different reasons...

Erica James novels are consistently wonderful stories. She has the ability to make you believe in her characters and their stories.

Her books keep you engaged right from the first line. She has some suspense, but in a nice way.

Erica James books Re worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Promises, Promises Nov. 25 2011
By Kathleen Kelly - Published on
Promises, Promises is a story of three people, unhappy in their current relationships and how they manage to get through each day. Maggie is a woman whose husband, to me is a real jerk with a mother from hell, Ella is an interior designer who is doing some interior painting work for Ethan and his wife, I love how as the story goes on each person evolves and how Maggie, Ella and Ethan's lives intertwine with each other. I especially liked the character of Maggie and how she finally stands up for herself and how everything that goes around, comes around for some of the other characters in the book and they get what they deserve. I found this book to be a very enjoyable read with a happy ever after ending. I have found another author whose works I want to read more of.Promises, Promises

1.0 out of 5 stars Unlikeable characters and story that doesn't ring true April 5 2012
By moonwolf - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed reading Ms James' work in the past, and so purchased Promises Promises hoping for a similarly well-written albeit easy read. I won't re-hash the story, as you can read that synopsis elsewhere. The main problem was that from the very first pages, I was struggling to feel any sympathy for, let alone actually like, any of the lead characters. As for the cast of supporting characters, they are so unrelentingly nasty, one-dimensional, and irritating, I found myself putting my Kindle down just to have a break from them!

The two protagonists, Ella and Maggie, seem to put up with an awful lot from their partners and families; and although we all well understand these pressures on women in modern life (that's why I like to read women's literature), these people simply did not ring true to me at all. Both women seemed wooden and unreal, I never felt I got to know them. It was as if, having become lazy, the author relied on making the people around the main characters so one-dimensionally mean and unsympathetic, that Ella and Maggie were justified in all their subsequent actions. When such decisions become a no-brainer, not only is it very simple to have the character react in a certain predictable way, it becomes incredibly annoying for the poor reader to struggle through a hundred pages while she makes that decision...

I tried to like this book, I really did. I read it to the end to be fair. I just did not find it is a pleasant or enjoyable read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A very easy read, I found myself sneaking out into a sunny corner to read more often than I should. I look forward to reading more by this writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Promises, Promises Dec 18 2011
By Dr. F - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Promises kept! I downloaded this book after being enthralled by a free copy of "Queen of New Beginnings," and I was not disappointed. Erica James has a knack of interesting you in a character immediately. I became instantly attached to Maggie, Ella and Ethan, almost holding my breath until their fates were revealed at the end. It is quite frustrating that more of EJ's novels are not available in e versions. As a marketing professor I can only applaud the genius of allowing the free download of one novel of such an engrossing writer - although it seems foolish not to have all her titles available. I would surely have bought another!
