That Promise by Jillian Dodd
Young Adult Romance
Release Date: June 8, 2021
What happens to childhood promises when you grow up?
Growing up, Devaney Diamond and Chase Mackenzie promised to go to college together. But it’s been two years since the summer that changed everything between them, and their friendship hasn’t recovered.
Now, Dani is faced with all the challenges of her freshman year of college—navigating rush week, making new friends, and living on her own—which is both exhilarating and intimidating. In high school, Dani was homecoming queen and head cheerleader. She should be able to handle the pressure, but college has been more overwhelming than she expected.
Chase, on the other hand, is living the dream. It’s his senior year of high school, his football team is hoping to go undefeated, and he’s being heavily recruited.
When Dani returns home for a weekend, she realizes why college feels so overwhelming—she doesn’t have Chase to share it with. In hopes of salvaging their friendship, she repeats an old tradition—sneaking over to his room with pizza after his game. But instead of fixing their friendship, they end up sleeping together.
Chase is thrilled that Dani is back in his life, but being friends with benefits when feelings are involved is more complicated than Chase imagined.
Will Chase and Dani work through their feelings for one another, or will their childhood promise be shattered when Chase announces what college he will commit to?

This series just gets better and better. Chase and Dani are destined to be together…but only if they can put aside hurt feelings and focus on putting each other first. Lots of angst on their journey with Chase dating Lacey and Dani away at college. I love the teen emotions, the nurturing parental advice and the innocence in discovering all of the firsts. First time away from home. First love. First time choosing people you want to surround yourself with. All of it…the growth and maturity of watching the Mackenzie and Diamond kids coming of age and finding their own love. I have fallen in love with all of the characters and reading their continuing story always makes me smile, laugh and sometimes cry. Such a sweet series that you won’t want to miss.
