    4 Stars! "'You’re a hypocrite' rattles around in Sapphire Stephenson’s head. Guilt plagues her. Does her daughter Yasmine know about William “Deck” Decker, the bouncer at bar, the man who’d saved her from being raped and now takes her breath away in the bar’s office after her bartending duties and his bouncer duties are over for the night? Being a good example for Yasmine, her sixteen-year-old, has been Sapphire’s mission in life. She hasn’t brought a man home in ten years. On the run for most of Yasmine’s life, with only each other to cling to, they’ve been more than just mother and daughter; they’ve been best friends until recently. Beautiful, responsible, industrious, intelligent Yasmine, seemingly overnight, had become a rebellious teenager with a boyfriend too old for her. When Sapphire set rules, the angry 'You’re a hypocrite' spewed out of Yasmine’s mouth. Deck, tough, handsome, mysterious, and long-time customer, has stopped his heavy drinking and turned bouncer after... More > Sapphire’s near rape. He’s know her for years and used her for a shrink as he sat at the bar drinking himself to numbness night after night. Rejection, he can't come to terms with, has shredded his self-esteem—for some reason he’s been deemed unworthy in his own estimation to be loved by his own mother and the women he’s protected and loved--still loves. Deck’s 'Whatever you want, honey,' sounds like a promise to Sapphire. But are promises made in the dark meant to be kept? Once burned, twice shy, Sapphire questions her own actions, but being with Deck feels so right. They all have emotional miles to go before they can find their happy-ever-after—making captivating reading. Karen Wiesner does a super job of making a book that is in a series very readable as a standalone story. Her characters with all their flaws come alive and reach right in and touch the reader’s heart. As she weaves their backstories in, one’s heart grieves for the hurts they’ve suffered. Wiesner makes PROMISES IN THE DARK a memorable, vicarious experience for the reader." -Long and Short Reviews as well as posted in the San Francisco Review of Books< Less
