About A Promise Kept: Closing her heart a long time ago, Grace Clark made a promise she’s vowed to keep. Having Hollywood heartthrob Evan Matthews move in next door with his alluring good looks, charisma, wit, and sexy smile is a temptation that runs the risk of compromising the importance of that promise. Evan is drawn to his new neighbor. Grace is the exact opposite of the women he normally encounters. Enticing, down-to-earth, and confident, she captivates him. She has no problems facing off with Evan, and he soon realizes Grace is much more than just a challenge. He wants to prove himself to her. Grace can see the man beyond the actor, and with more than just her pride at stake, she needs to hold tight to her promise before Evan breaks through all her walls, exposing her heart.

Jake nodded his head, then started to talk about how he was spending the night. He then rambled about his birthday party, but Evan decided to not tell him he would be attending in full costume.
“Excuse me, guy, where do you work?”
“His name is Evan,” Grace interrupted.
“Okay, excuse me, Evan, where do you work?”
“I work in different places, but usually in Los Angeles. Do you know where that is?”
Jake shook his head up and down, “Disneyland. I went there last year.” Evan started on the pizza but reminded himself to only eat one slice. “Evan?”
“Can you spend the night?”
He and Grace both chuckled and looked at each other, Grace answering for him, “Evan has his own house next door.”
“But he’s my new best friend. He can stay here.” Jake pouted.
“He has to stay in his own house,” Grace said, finishing her slice and wiping her hands and mouth with a napkin.
“But you can share a bed with Aunt Grace, and I can sleep in the other room.” Jake was animated with a hopeful look on his face.
Evan couldn’t stop grinning as he gazed over her. “That sounds like a great idea to me, Grace. We could spoon, ya know.”
“In your dreams.”
“Aunt Grace, you don’t like Evan?”
“Yeah, you don’t like me, Gracie?” He pouted his lip and watched as her body began to tense up. Rising from the table and grabbing the empty plates, she headed to the kitchen.
“Jake, he’s not spending the night,” she stated tensely as she rinsed the silverware and put them in the dishwasher.
“Pleaaaaaaase,” Jake began to mope.
“Not til later, sport,” Evan winked at him. “When Aunt Gracie is ready.” Obviously he was still being friend-zoned, and that would have to change soon.
