Review: Stealing Promises by Brina Courtney (4 Stars)

Promises are made to be kept, never stolen. But that’s exactly what happened to Victoria Blane and Levi Manor. Tragedy strikes their perfect relationship leaving Victoria struggling to overcome the darkness that threatens to bury her.
With Victoria’s life in tatters she decides that running away is easier than dealing with her troubles. But when a friend finds her on the floor in her kitchen, she knows it’s time for a change.

Brighton Hanley knows what it’s like to lose someone. He knows what it’s like to be haunted by things that can never change. When he meets Victoria he recognizes the pain she’s trying to bury deep in her eyes. He knows she’s trying to run away, but he also knows that you can’t run forever.

Victoria is drawn to Brighton in ways she never expected. He becomes her champion, her life line… her sunshine in the darkness. But is Victoria ready to let go of the past and grab on to her future? Or will she run away from Brighton before she can be hurt again?

Brina Courtney is a young adult author obsessed with chocolate, crime shows, and fantasy movies. She's spent the last few years as an elementary teacher and a high school cheering coach. She lives in a small town in Pennsylvania with her husband and two very loud, small dogs.

Victoria Blane and Levi Manor knew they'd be together forever.. that is until tragedy strikes and things don't go the way it was supposed to. After a grief counselor pushes Victoria to start living again, Victoria moves and attempts to finish college.

When Brighton Hanley comes into her life after having dealt with his own heartache, she likes him but her heart isn't ready to move on from Levi.

Brighton tries to be patient and let her warm up on her own, but only time will tell if she will let down her guard and open her heart to another love. Can she let go of the grief from losing Levi or will she push Brighton away?
