SYNOPSIS: I’ve got it all, they say. I’m the starting quarterback for the best NFL team in the league. I’m rich. I’m famous. I can have any woman I want, any time I want.
Yeah, I’ve got everything—except for the one who got away. How do you move on from loving the same girl since you were in the seventh grade? She promised me forever until forever got too hard and at nineteen, she dumped me.
By text message.
Now she’s walked back into my life. Just as beautiful. Just as sweet. Just as smart. More grown up and incredibly sexy…
We’re older now. Supposedly wiser. This time, I’m going to fight for what I want, no matter how hard it gets.
This time, I’m going to make her mine.

Of course, I’m not going to shake Amanda’s hand.
Instead I grab hold of it, that unmistakable jolt of electricity sparking when our skin connects, just like every other time we’ve touched. I pull her to me and wrap her up in my arms because I can. I’m the one who offered up the tickets so I could…what? Show off? Let her know exactly how great my life is?
I can’t lie. My life is pretty damn great. I have everything I could ever want—except for one thing.
“Hi Jordan,” she breathes against my neck, and I swear she melts into me a little. Like she can’t help herself. Like we somehow still fit together even after all these years.
Either she got smaller or I grew bigger since the last time I touched her, and I’m guessing it’s the latter. She smells familiar, yet different. Better. I recognize the scent of her shampoo, but nothing else. Her hair is longer. Thick. Dark and wavy, up in a ponytail and a little disheveled, like she’s had a long day. Her body is curvier, something teenaged Amanda would’ve never believed could happen. She still has those sexy long legs, though.
Finally, she pulls away from me, her lips curled, her eyes sparkling, nervousness written all over her face, and I watch her carefully in return, my expression as neutral as I can make it. Honestly, I’m still a little pissed over that garbage game we just played, and I’m tense like I usually am after. Her understanding gaze meets mine and I know she knows what I’m feeling. We’ve always been in tune with each other…
She’s my Mandy, all grown up. But not my Mandy anymore.

I love myself a good sports romance and You Promised Me Forever delivered on every aspect!  This book had a little bit of everything that I look for in a sport book, actually sports, love, romance and can you go wrong??

Amanda or Mandy and Jordan Tuttle from the Friends Series were one of my favorite couples and to see them again, years later and what happened with their love and their lives was fantastic.  Monica Murphy still gave her readers everything you want and need in a book, making it new and exciting without re-writing history so to speak.

When Amanda and Tuttle reunite following his appearance on NFL tonight, she slides into his DMs and all bets are off.  Tuttle never stopped loving the girl who stole his heart and Amanda never forgot about the boy who was supposed to be her forever.   These two need to get over the past hurts and work on the now if they are going to make it as a couple.  I loved how they each overcame their childhood insecurities regarding the other, despite the fact that they did surface now and then, especially since Tuttle became an NFL star.  

I cannot wait for more from this series.
