Review: Forgotten Promises by Jessica Lemmon from Loveswept

Forgotten Promises
by Jessica Lemmon
Published:  January 19, 2016
Publisher:  Loveswept

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.

My Thoughts:  I've read quite a few of Jessica Lemmon's books and have enjoyed them all, and Forgotten Promises was no exception to that.  It was, however, very different from the other books I've read by by Jessica Lemmon in that it was darker, much more intense and emotional, and was heartbreaking at times.  I must give Lemmon kudos in that she tackled a very difficult subject matter and she did it extremely well.  Tucker's story is one I won't soon forget.  While the circumstances that brought Morgan and Tucker together were, let's just say, not the best, I did enjoy seeing their relationship develop despite that, both romantically and emotionally.

Toward the end of the book, I joined them on their emotional roller coaster and was a bit worried as to how things would work out, but it was all good, and Jessica Lemmon ended the story beautifully.  Forgotten Promises is a wonderfully written story, though definitely different than your typical cookie cutter feel good romance, and is definitely something  contemporary romance  fans, as well as fans of Jessica Lemmon will want to check out.


  1. I've really enjoyed this author as well, glad this is another one I can add to my must read list. ;)

  2. I haven't heard of this author yet but this sounds like a really good book. I'm glad you enjoyed it and I'll be adding it to my TBR.
