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.

Andrews Promise is the second book in the Heroes series by Nic Starr. While this is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel with ease.

Andrew Campbell is a young mechanic who loves his job. He is content with his life. He is about to restore a Ford Mustang with his Dad before heading off on a cross-country road trip. However, when tragedy strikes Andrew gives up his dream of a cross country trip to raise his younger brother. But in the process, he pushes his best friend away.

Tanner McKenzie heart was broken when Andrew pushed him away. He went on the cross country trip alone. He started a life for himself but now he is back after being gone for ten years. Tanner wants to start over with Andrew to at least be friends again or more.

The connection between Tanner and Andrew is intense. You could feel the love between the two of them. I am surprised that Tanner did not see that Andrew pushed him away all those years ago so he was not tied down like Andrew was going to be. You have to admire Andrew for stepping up like he did. There are not many people who would even if they were in the position to do it.

I found this book well written with a unique plot. I enjoyed how the author used the flashbacks to complete the story. It was done in a way that did not detract from the storyline, or frustrate the reader.  While the ending was a little predictable, I enjoyed the overall message this book tells. I had a hard time putting this book down. Overall, this was a very wonderful book and I hope to see these characters again in the future.
