I Promise You: Stand-Alone College Sports Romance Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
From number one Amazon Charts and WSJ best-selling author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes an all-new swoony romance between the football hottie and the mystery girl he kissed years before....
Dillon McQueen: Babe. I promise. You want me.
Serena Jensen: Um, who are you?
There’s a legend at Waylon University: The first girl you kiss freshman year at the bonfire party is the one you’ll never forget. She’ll crawl under your skin. She’ll spark a passion so fierce you’ll burn the world down to possess her.
You might even put a ring on it.
But...timing is everything. That kiss can go horribly wrong. She might run in the opposite direction. And boy, did Serena run.
Dillon is Waylon’s hotshot quarterback with something to prove. All he wants is to graduate and make it to the NFL. What he doesn’t need is to finally meet the mystery girl he kissed at the bonfire freshman year. Isn’t it enough that she’s haunted his dreams for more than a thousand nights?
Fate laughs in his face when he runs into the plucky girl at the Piggly Wiggly. Surrounded by his entourage, he’s got all the Oreos in his cart; she gets revenge by buying every six-pack of his favorite beer.
Obviously, that legend is a curse. She’s not his type and hates him. Worst of all, how can she not remember him when she left a Serena-shaped hole in his heart for the past three years?
So why can’t he stop trying to win her?
Will this quarterback score the girl or make the biggest fumble of his life?
Author’s note: I Promise You is a complete stand-alone college sports romance. Expect hot football jocks, strong women with pluck, a tell-it-like-it-is nana, deep feels, fun banter, and a sigh-worthy happy ending. No cheating or cliff-hangers.

Myth or legend...who cares? True love found them.
Freshman year he spots her at the annual bonfire. They say the first girl you kiss becomes your destiny. Dillon kissed her and she disappeared. It's been three years and now his mystery girl has reappeared and she is a spitfire.
Dillon is determined to make Serena his girl. She's got a trunk load of baggage, so breaking down her walls is going to be a tough job. He's always left it all on the field for football, he's willing to do the same to get the girl.
I loved Serena and her complicated past. Her family was close-knit and full of humor that endeared you to them. They had each other's backs and loved hard, but pulled no punches when it came to the truth. Dillon was a guy searching for something real. He found that in Serena before he even realized who she was. He's ready to take come risks because winning her heart is a challenge he's willing to take.
This was a NA romance with two people who have their own hurts from the past. The sexual tension was sizzling, but the romance was even hotter. I adored this couple and their journey to finding true love. A great read from this automatic one-click author!
Fast-forward a few years, and Dillon is now the quarterback for Waylon. He’s got one goal in mind, and that’s the NFL. However fate has a way of throwing things our way, and when he runs into Serena, the mystery girl from the bonfire, she’s full of sass and snark and Dillon isn’t quite sure she remembers their kiss. Boy how wrong he is. The legend is just that, a legend, Serena’s been hurt before and she isn’t trying to go down that road again. But Dillon won’t give up, as the two spend more time circling around each other, their chemistry is undeniable, but can Dillon win the girl, or lose her and the game he loves?
Let me just tell you, I absolutely love everything but Ilsa, and this series is one of my favorites by her. And I was really sure that nobody could pass Ryker for me, but I absolutely love Dillon. He’s such a sweetheart, he can be cocky sure, but underneath that arrogance is a wonderful man. I also have a girl crush on Serena. She gives as good as she gets and after some mistakes she knows what she wants from life and love. The two of them complement each other so beautifully, their push and pull, ugh I don’t even think I can adequately describe it. So many feels with this one. Also the secondary characters in this book are HILARIOUS, Serena’s grandma is a hoot.
While this book can be read as a complete stand-alone, and I promise you won’t feel like you are missing anything by not reading the first books, I highly recommend reading them because they’re amazing as well!
This is Dillon and Serena's story. Waylon University legend has it that they were destined to be together. A kiss at a bonfire sealed their fate. It's 3 years between the bonfire and when they met again....a meeting that was hilarious BTW, but they had a strong connection. Life has dealt them similar, tragic, hands. It may be that common bond that draws them together. An understanding of grief and loss.
I went into this book expecting it to be the usual sports romance. It was not. While Dillon, a football player, was a typical cocky "player", he was so much more. He's sweet, sexy and has this vulnerability about him. Life isn't as easy for him as people believe to be. I loved how this author wrote him! He is so perfect for Serena, who is a bit skittish about love. She needs someone who can understand what she's been through, who will take care of her heart.
I Promise You is packed with all the feels!!! I found myself at times literally laughing out loud, I also got teary eyed. It was the perfect balance.
I Promise You is a standalone in the Waylon University world and I highly recommend it!!

The minute I started reading this I was completely invested in their story.
Dillon and Serena first meet at the famous Waylon University Bonfire, it only takes Dillon minutes to know there is something special about Serena, his Dandelion but timing wasn't right for them.
Three years later after a chance encounter timing might just be on their side.
Dillon and Serena both have trust issues, been hurt and have both lost people they love.
The attraction between the two of them can't be denied, their chemistry is enough to light the bonfire!
Their story has so much emotion! One minute I was laugh out loud, the next minute I had tears in my eyes.
