Author Cornell L. Brent Sr. has gone through so much in previous relationships but then he met his gorgeous wife. This meeting of hearts inspired him to write a love story. His debut novel, “A Broken Promise” (published by Xlibris), perfectly captures the romance and the drama that will captivate many readers.

After jumping from one relationship to the next and making careless mistakes during adolescence, Xavier Gibson could not stop until he found unconditional love. One night, he met Naomi, a girl who has a crush on him. They shared a kiss that made her believe they were a couple. The fact that Xavier was already in a relationship made the things even more complicated. When they were given a chance to be together, they made a promise to stay faithful as they get older. But one of them failed the temptation of infidelity, turning an open mind into a closet of secrets. Is it the end of their love story?

An excerpt from the book:
A teenager’s worst nightmare is falling in love, doing whatever it takes no matter the risk, even if they have to go against the world. Though pain is involved, it extremely demands to be felt. Trapped by adolescence, I was looking for love, but when I thought that I finally found the right one, it was only dissimulation.

Showcasing two well-drawn characters and a smooth storyline that will take many adults down memory lane, “A Broken Promise” paints a picture of the struggles that young people face when being in love. It imparts to them a valuable lesson that will guide them through their own tumultuous relationships and makes them believe in the magic of love that can withstand the tests of time.
