    Excellent

    This is part one of a two part series telling Drew and Skylar's story. In this part Skylar is 18 to Drew's 21. Skylar has been in love with Drew forever but Drew has put her in the off limits zone until she's 21. On her way home for the holidays Skylar makes an unexpected stop in Vegas and ends up on Drew's doorstep. The attraction between these two is off the charts but he's determined to make sure nothing will happen between them for another 3 years so they come up with a plan..... This is a very well done story and I can't wait to read how everything turns out. I recommend this one.

    Sweet Holiday Read

    Whenever I pick up a Violet Duke book it is like enjoying time with an old quirky friend that always makes you laugh. Do note that this novella ends in a cliffhanger and the second part will be released Valentine's 2017. If you are looking for a quick, light read, with all the good feelings of Christmas, I'd put this book at the top of my list. -Spoilers below- At first I wondered if the main man, Drew, was going to be "alpa" enough for a my taste in romance novels, but I enjoyed getting to know his soft side first. And, there is a hallway scene that is absolutely steamy, while still managing to be innocent. This section of the novella alone gets five stars! I submitted a request to the publisher to read and voluntarily review an uncorrected advance reader's copy of this book.

    Sweet Anticipation!!!

    Oh my!!! What a beautiful beginning!!! I love the setup of Drew and Skylar's story and I am so looking forward to reading the rest of their story. Sky and Drew are so very different. She not only loves Christmas, she completely believes in the magic of the season. Whereas Drew can't even bring himself to say the words Merry Christmas, he so completely doesn't believe. I just know that the rest of this story will be just as fantastic as every other book I have read by this author!!!!

    Super, sweet story!

    Before that Promise is the first book in the duet of books about Drew and Skylar. If you have read Violet Duke's other series, you might recognize Skylar Sullivan from the Can't Resist series and Drew Lawson from the Cactus Creek series and if you haven't read either, that won't matter either because this duet will stand alone! Drew is not a fan of Christmas or anything that has to do with the merry holiday. What he is a fan of is Skylar, but he's also stated that until she turns 21, she's off limits to him. She's everything he could ever want, but until he deems her old enough, he's vowed to stay away. Skylar is all too aware of Drew's thought process and she's ready to put an end to it. She's close enough to 21 that she thinks it shouldn't matter anymore and when on her way home to her family for Christmas, her flight gets stuck in Las Vegas, Lia, Drew's sister gives her the information she needs to locate him. A lot happens for Drew and Skylar in his novella, including a road trip where they both open up and share parts of them that they haven't before, especially Drew. It's obvious that they are it for one another, but the question remains will they be able to actually get together and make it work? I greatly enjoyed this first part of the duet and while I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader’s Copy of the book, I purchased it and would encourage anyone else to do so as well. It's a great addition to Violet Duke's stable of work and I can't wait for the next one to come out!

    A sweet story!

    Drew and Skylar is the couple that everyone who reads Violet Duke's books have been waiting for! Well we finally got a little taste of I submitted a request to the publisher to read and voluntarily review an uncorrected advance reader's copy of this book. to come. The book gives a little detail about what Drews plan to findhis brother is. This is a very sweet book that gives you teasers to what the conclusion of their story will be like. I submitted a request to the publisher to read and voluntarily review an uncorrected advance reader's copy of this book. This is an honest review of my opinion of the book.
