Pressestimmen

“You’re going to fall in love with this romantic (and scandalous!) read. It 100% lives up to its promise.” (Sarah Mlynowski, bestselling author of Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have))

“Filled with action, passion, and adolescent angst, Constantine’s novel introduces two believable characters with strong, honest voices who work to find themselves as they chart new territory together.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Enjoyable and sometimes surprising…for readers who like a little more heft than the average teen romance novel.” (School Library Journal)

“Will have you rooting for the bad boy to find his inner good, and for the good girl to open up her heart to love again.” (The Bookish Daydreamer)

“I was instantly hooked.” (YA Love)

Buchrückseite

Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she's not popular, not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet good girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now, in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change but doesn't know how.

Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe's: star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, and on the fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a "term-paper pimp." Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change but doesn't know how.

One fateful night, their paths cross at Wren's family's Arthurian-themed catering hall. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love.

Simply Amazing 31. Dezember 2013
Von Janice (Rabidreading) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Gems. The first thing most of us think of when we hear that word is precious stones. Sapphires, rubies, emeralds, diamonds. But there are different kinds of gems, and for readers, they can be far more precious and valuable than jewelry or sparkly things. A good book that transports you, excites you, makes you laugh and smile and feel all sorts of delicious feels - that is my definition of a gem, and I certainly found one in The Promise of Amazing.

The book's title is, indeed, a promise, and one author Robin Constantine more than keeps. Wren and Gray's story is superbly written and so darn engrossing, I couldn't put it down. Heck, I was even reluctant to tear myself away for food and bathroom breaks, that's how into it this book I was! Pretty much says it all, don't you think? ;)

The story is written in dual POV's, which is always a huge treat for me. I have insane love for DPOV books, especially when they are done right (as this one very much is!). I didn't even need to be told at the start of each chapter whose POV I was reading, because Wren and Gray's voices were so distinct, there was no way I could confuse them. And the transition between POV's was flawless. Not a single bump in the road. The entire book was that way, in fact, from the descriptions to the dialogue to the drama and romance. Everything just...flowed.

Wren's POV kicks off the book, and as much as I loved Gray (oh, how I loved Gray!), I'm kinda glad Wren got her hooks into me first. There's a very girl-next-door vibe about her that I found highly appealing. She's good (but not goody-two-shoes), sweet (but not sugary), and so adorable at times that you'll wish she was real so you could give her a big, squishy hug. It's no wonder Gray fell under her spell after she saved him. The girl is magic, folks. Pure magic.

If you're looking for a new YA book boyfriend, Gray is definitely your guy. He's at a crossroads, caught between the future and his not-so-straight-and-narrow past. There's a cockiness about him that could be off-putting, yet just when he starts to venture into total tool territory, he flips the sincerity switch, and voila! Instant melt. Despite the mistakes he has made and the shadiness of his past, Gray is a good guy at heart, and that's never more apparent than when he is with Wren. The pull between them is palpable, and their on-page chemistry is sheer perfection.

Author Robin Constantine has earned herself a new fan. The Promise of Amazing is a fantastic YA contemporary novel, and I can't wait to read what she writes next!

Didn't hold up to the 'promise of amazing' I expected. 23. Januar 2014
Von Sara @ Forever 17 Books - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What I expected from The Promise of Amazing is just what the title implies, the promise of something amazing. With a cute cover and adorable sounding love story in the synopsis, I could not wait to read this one. Unfortunately my love for the book stops there.

I apologize if this review is semi-spoilery but to talk about what didn’t work for me it’s going to be. The point of view switches between our two main characters, Wren and Grayson. I wish I could say this worked but it didn’t. At the very beginning I liked Wren, the quiet girl, because well that’s me. She’s often doesn’t know how to speak up and isn’t quite sure what she wants out of life. Those traits were very relatable. But as the story progressed she lost me. Her back and forth with Grayson was incredibly annoying. There is nothing wrong with indecision but she took it to a whole level of naivety that made me want to slap her. Grayson was a mess. I like bad boys and ones you can watch grow and mature but I didn’t find many redeemable qualities about Grayson. And there was no swooning at all! I tried to root for him but he made it so difficult with stupid decision after stupid decision. With a lack of connection to both characters, I found it hard to enjoy the story. But I must say I was determined to find something great and I kept reading on, hoping the end would be the big payoff. It didn’t happen.

Okay this is the spoilery part because I have to discuss how pissy this part of the book made me. Wren is a little iffy on Grayson at first. She is very attracted to him but has some reservations when something is revealed to make her question if she wants someone like that in her life. Good for her. Unbeknownst to her, there is so much more she doesn’t know about. Things that are much, much worse. Grayson has a past that involves luring girls to him, using them, and then stealing from them and their family. But it’s all in the past, right? Basically, BUT when a friend semi-threatens to share this info with Wren, Grayson agrees to go on one more ‘assignment’. Wren catches him heavily flirting with said girl (touching her hair, etc.) and is obviously upset. Who wouldn’t be? But 5 minutes later she is fine with it, making out with him in the dressing room, and has no problem keeping the date they had for later that night. Huh? Just like that? This is where Wren completely lost me. And if that wasn’t frustrating enough, she seems to have no problems ignoring all that as they go on their date and share ‘I love you’s’ and then he gives her a ‘stolen’ necklace. Am I supposed to be rooting for these people as a couple at this point because it was a load of ridiculousness I couldn’t handle. It made me so mad at both of them. Again, I am totally fine with characters making mistakes, learning from them and moving on but this just didn’t work for me. It was too late in the game with not enough time to recover.

What held promise for me at the beginning managed to fall flat as I continued. There were a few good moments sprinkled in and even though I wasn’t completely impressed with the ending, it does have a way of fulfilling the title with a ‘promise’ of something amazing to follow beyond where the book took these characters. Unfortunately I just didn’t see enough of that in what we actually got to read.

Promise of Amazing Loved It!!! 30. Januar 2014
Von Susan O'keefe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine

Promise of Amazing was just that. The writing was so real, I felt like I was spending a girls weekend with my best friend. So much so, that I actually felt like I missed her when I finished the book. I could totally see myself hanging out in the high school lunch room (and beyond) with a girl like Wren and her sidekicks Madison and Jazz. And it was not so long ago that I was trolling for photos in my older brother’s yearbook and spinning tales of love in my head for a guy I just met.

The “Love at First” sight theme made the book a fun read. It was whimsical in a way, but there was also a struggle so it made it realistic. The characters were flawed. They were not perfect people. And the author gives an authentic portrayal of the two characters dealing with their issues while falling in love.

The dual point of view was an enjoyable experience for me. I have never read a book with two voices before. I was impressed with how well the author wrote Grayson’s Chapters from a “guys” standpoint. You wouldn’t believe that the writer is actually a girl.

The characters were very believable, the story was well crafted, and everything tied together at the end. It left me with a feeling of wanting to know what will happen next with Wren and Grayson. Can’t wait for a sequel (hint, hint).

Relatable and unexpected 11. April 2014
Von Sarah M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Sweet and touching. Relatable and unexpected. I love this book!

Wren and Gray are two very different people at very different places in their lives. Their lives collide in dramatic fashion when Wren saves Gray from choking on a cocktail weenie. What follows is great - Gray's pursuit of Wren is adorable, and their relationship, while obviously flawed in some ways, is sweet and touching.

I really enjoyed this book. I like when people come from different places, different lives, and meet in the middle, each compromising a bit to be together.

Two notes:

1. I have seen complaints of instalove and how it's dumb. Well, I remember being a teenager, and I remember falling in instalove a lot. "Oh, wow, look at that tall, tan, blonde, cute new guy!" BAM. I read something a few months ago about how that's how teenage brains work (which makes me feel better about the dozens of crushes I had in my teen years). These are believable, confused teenagers.

2. I have seen people complain that when a guy pursues a girl, he's a stalker and crazed and he should respect her no and leave her alone. Sure, in general, this is true. But let's just accept that sometimes, you have to try to get what you want, you can't just let it pass you by. (Says a girl who once left a rose on a cute boy's jeep.)
