In an edgy, seductive novel hailed by Rachel Van Dyken as “unique and gripping,” Jessica Lemmon introduces the ultimate bad boy . . . and a love that crosses all boundaries.

Morgan Young had a perfect upbringing, and now she’s got a perfect boyfriend and a perfect future—until her twenty-first birthday changes everything. First Morgan finds out, in the most painful way possible, that her relationship is a sham. But that’s nothing compared to the nightmare about to unfold.

It’s too late for Tucker Noscalo. A brutal childhood left him with a bad reputation and a criminal record. Fresh out of jail, Tucker has a score to settle with Baybrook’s crooked chief of police—his own father. Nobody will believe Tucker’s explosive accusations without proof and a good lawyer, neither of which he has on his side. Until he sees someone he used to know, someone who just so happens to be the daughter of the best lawyer in the county.

He needs Morgan to convince her father of the ugly truth. But first he has to convince her, and he’ll do whatever it takes to get her to listen. Confronted by the story of Tucker’s dark past, Morgan feels utterly compelled to help him. And as their connection grows into a fierce bond fueled by raw passion, Morgan finds herself falling for the wrong guy—but never has the promise of love felt so right.

book review: 5 wow stars!!

Whatever I say about Jessica Lemmon’s books will be little. Even if Forgotten Promises is the second book I read by her, I can see clear-as-day that she knows how to pull gems out of her pockets. Or more accurately out of her gorgeous imagination! I can’t describe how much I loved every single second I spent reading this amazing story.

In Forgotten Promises, Lemmon make us witnesses of not only and amazing love story, but also of a very special moment for these two characters, Tucker and Morgan. But let’s take it from the start.

Being close to him scrambles my brain. East becomes west. wrong becomes right, and the girl I thought I was is shaking her head in confusion at me.

Tucker and Morgan are two young people with completely opposite lives and lifestyles. The first is a man that has gone through more than a lot in his life and the second is a girl who has grown up in wealth and “inside-a-box”. But as the saying goes: Opposites attract each other. And, although this has been already proved with these two since they both had a bit of a crush on each other, now it’s time for it to get to the next level. HA! And what a next level is going to be!!!                                             

Everything is set in motion when Tucker, driven by a crazy thought, acts desperately and kidnaps Morgan when he meets her again by accident. He needs help taking down the one person who’s in fault fro everything horrible in his life and Morgan is the only one that can help him. So, he decides to take her to his friend’s cabin in the woods and, under the role of the kidnapper, to tell her his story and persuade her to help him. But little did he know that this act, just started Fate’s plan for them and nothing is going to be the same again. Neither her lives, nor the individuals they were before.

So, little by little thing he uncovers about his past to her, the masks start to fall and both their real selves are shown. And what happens after that is literally magical. Adding also that special moment I was referred to previously in the mix, the story turns into something refreshing and beautiful. After that, I couldn’t get enough of Tuck and Mo. I wanted more and more! Damn, I still do. Plus, I will never be able to speak separately for each one since these two can’t be described without the reference to the other. They are one unit. I seriously doubt that this couple will ever leave my heart because they gave me something new through the expected progress of their relationship .

“Nothing feels as good as touching you”. One eyebrow raises and dips.

“Almost nothing.”

This book is definitely one that you don’t want to miss and leave unread it. I highly recommend it to everyone! And can’t wait to see what else Jessica Lemmon has up on her sleeve next because she became a drop-everything author for me!
