She's waiting for her prince to come … but was he right beside her all the time?
Kristina Rose Maher wants to know why fairytales never happen for fat girls. Certain that diner cook Jeff, handsome and fit, will never want her as more than a friend, she stuffs down her attraction to him. But when she finds herself facing a life-altering weight loss surgery, she discovers she's willing to do whatever it takes to embrace life—and love—to the fullest.
Jeffrey Berkley can't bear the thought of losing the friend he’s only just beginning to realize matters so much to him… no matter what size she is. But he is also terrified that helping her reach for her dreams will also mean finally reaching for his own—and letting down his family’s legacy in the process.
Both Kristina Rose and Jeffrey must learn to love themselves before they can find a way to make a promise to each other. Will they finally be able to lay their heavy burdens at the Lord's feet, and trust him to bring the happily-ever-after they both crave?

Couldn’t Put It Down
I loved this book! I read it within just a few hours. This is the second in The First Street Church Romances Book series. I loved the storyline between Kristina Rose and Jeffrey. They have been good friends for years and work together. Kristina is on the brink of facing a life of changes as she faces gastric bypass surgery. Jeffrey struggles with continual pressure from his father to take over the family business, but that is not what his heart tells him to do. As each comes to grips with their fear of what the future holds for them, they learn much about themselves, each other, and their faith. Melissa Storm shares how the storyline of the gastric bypass surgery mirrors her own life.
The two books of the series have been very faith oriented and I have enjoyed reading them very much. I highly recommend this book to all and anxiously await the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book, but was under no obligation to review the book. I have expressed my unbiased opinion.
I tried to enjoy this story. It was just too much, too sweet, made my teeth ache.
A Must Read Book
Love's Promise by Melissa Storm is a great book. I loved Kristina Rose and Jeffrey's story. I fell in love with the characters both individually and as a couple. Kristina Rose is going through a life altering surgery and has been looking for her Prince Charming. Little did she know he was near her all along. I absolutely loved this book and can't wait to read more by Melissa Storm.
