Today is the release for Nic Starr’s latest novel Andrew’s Promise. It’s the second in the Heroes series and follows Andrew and Tanner. Andrew is Charlie’s brother who we first met in Charlie’s Hero.
Check them out below:
Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It’s love at first sight, and a romance begins.
But Josh’s reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him, puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh’s concerns, he can’t help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.
It’s not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn’t come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie’s hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that to be part of a family, he doesn’t need his parents.
Young mechanic Andrew Campbell’s life couldn’t be better. He is about to restore a Ford Mustang with his dad before heading off on the ultimate cross-country road trip with his best friend, Tanner McKenzie.
But tragedy strikes, and Andrew’s life is shattered. Worried his family will be torn apart if he doesn’t step in, Andrew makes a tough choice between following his heart and doing what he needs to do to protect his little brother.
When Andrew pushes Tanner away, Tanner heads off on the planned trip alone. Once Tanner leaves town, his life takes a different path and it’s ten years before he returns. Now a firefighter, he’s never forgotten his first love, and no one has ever taken Andrew’s place in his heart. He’s determined to see if Andrew feels the same way. He just hopes Andrew’s excited to see him, hopes that he’s available—and finally out—after all this time.
They might not have been ready to deal with emerging feelings years ago, but now might be the time for their second chance at love.
We know heroes can come in many forms. They can be men and women who risk their lives to save someone like a firefighter or police officer. They can be fighting in the military to ensure we enjoy the freedoms we often take for granted in our everyday living. They can be a stranger holding someone’s hand who has wrecked their car as they wait for the paramedics (another type of hero) to arrive to help them. They are there at times of need. They are selfless. They are considerate.
So what’s this got to do with Nic Starr’s new release? Not much really. I just wanted to say thank you to my best friend who has helped me over the past week that I’ve been absent from social media, despite having my own release to promote. Life can get the best of us sometimes and during those times we can feel the need to curl up in a corner and hide for a while. That was me the last few days. Nic was there and she listened patiently, always encouraging, even when I was being a whiny bitch for no discernible reason. She gets me. She even told me to pull my head out when that was what I needed to hear. So I’m sending a big heartfelt thank you to my bestie. *Big squishy hugs*
Now to Andrew’s promise. I’m not going to do a big review here, but I will say that this book made me fangirl all over Nic. Despite thinking Andrew was a bit of a douche in Charlie’s Hero, I loved him. I got him. I loved Tanner and when these two finally sorted their shit out? Magic. Sexy magic. And who doesn’t love that?
Oh and Nic? If you see this I’ll try to be subtle.

There. Now it’s out in the open you have to write it.
