Forgotten Promises

*Sensitive Subject Warning*

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.

*about that Sensitive Subject Warning...

If you're familiar with my writing, Forgotten Promises, while it is a Jessica Lemmon book, may not feel exactly like a Jessica Lemmon book. Forgotten Promises is dark and intense and emotional. You still have the happily ever after payoff at the end, but Tucker's tragic upbringing alone will carve a hole in your heart. 

Told in dual first person POVs, Tucker’s past was an incredibly emotional journey for me to write. I hope Tucker and Morgan find homes in your hearts the way they did mine.

Happy (intense!) reading,

xo, Jessica


Noteworthy Review

 Forgotten Promises earned the Guilty Pleasures Reviews Purest Delight award

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked this book to read; it moved me deeply and while it has a happily ever after getting there was not easy or pretty and it shows another depth to author Jessica Lemmon’s storytelling.
