An idyllic setting can hide the ugliest of lies— I know that better than anyone.

Happy Freaking Birthday
I’m still gaping at my boyfriend from across the table at Pinky’s taco-slash-karaoke bar, and, if he doesn’t proceed very carefully, his final resting place.
Drew has an exaggerated look of remorse on his face I just know is manufactured.
“We didn’t plan to, Mo,” he tells me.
“Don’t call me that,” I manage and it’s the first words I’m capable of since he and Shayna dropped the bomb that they were doing the nasty. An accurate description, I think, mind st ...more
I just finished reading this amazing and heartbreaking story, and all I can think of is poor Tucker. What that men went through is simply put horrific and no child should ever experience such betrayal by the one person, who they love the most and look up to!
The story is exactly as described in blub. It starts with Tucker just getting out of prison, with the plan to bring down his father, the towns crooked chief of police and get s ...more

This was brutal. This book devastated and broke me, and then made me whole again. I have no other way to describe it. And this review took me a very long time to complete.
I wish I could just say "This is a beautiful book, go and get it." but that's not enough.
"I would have loved you regardless."
Tucker is a criminal, in the sense that he's been in juvi and he's been in jail. He's broken the law. He's been violent. All of it is tr ...more

Tucker Noscalo is fr ...more
Morgan never expected her day to get any worse. Finding out on your 21st birthday that your boyfriend is cheating on you with your best friend, would take the cake. What made it even worse was being kidnapped by the one person you didn't expect. And finding out the reason behind her kidnapping leaves her becoming a different, but same person at the end. With a bit more to loose.
Tucker just wants vengeance and the truth to be free. His past continues to haunt him and he can ...more
Sometimes when I review a book, I wish I could just say: "This story is absolutely amazing! Please, just go buy the book!" and that would be enough said. Why? Because I don’t want to give away any spoilers; I just want to stress how much I loved it. And with a story like this, it's easy to do. I love this story so,so very much. So, less is going to be more with this review. And the more is: Tucker Noscalo. OMG, this guy is beautiful. Readers are used to the norm when it comes to a bad boy. Like ...more
Forgotten Promises was so much more than I expected.
The storyline was emotional, heartbreaking and very entertaining.
My interest was captured from the first page, I didn't want to put it down. I needed to know how were these two people ever going to get their HEA, I couldn't see an out for them.
Both Tucker and Morgan were likable characters, I enjoyed watching their relationship unfold.
While I liked Morgan my heart went out to Tucker, I really felt for him, so many times I wan ...more
“I’m sorry?” I say to him, not the least bit sorry. “You have needs involving your penis in Shayna’s vagina?” “In my mouth, actually,” she interjects and it’s such a skanky thing to say I feel my mouth drop open.
This is how Morgan spends her twenty first birthday; finding out her boyfriend is cheating on her with her best friend. However, sh ...more
**Reviewer's note: This book deals with past sexual abuse, and interrupted sexual assault and some self harm. There are also a couple of intense scenes of kidnapping and being held against will.
From the first book I read by Jessica Lemmon I was a fan and I have enjoyed everything she's written, some I've loved beyond reason and I did love this book, but this is not a happy and fun book. Forgotten Promises is dark, a bit twisted, gut-wrenchin ...more
ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review
^^4,5^^ intense stars from me
That was a very dark emotional story....
....but also a story with a meaning about people like Tucker and his brother, i don't want to dig into that subject not only for not spoiling but also because is a sensitive subject.
Now about the story Morgan celebrates her twenty-first birthday but she didn't expect that today her simple and in order life to turn upside down, not only by her boyfriend's news but als...more
Well well well well well....
This is a book that has indeed surprised me.
I am trying to catch up on some past books I missed that had fallen down my Kindle and this is one of them.
I probably wouldn't have selected this one to read from Net Galley due to the cover. I always think that these guys are about sex, sex and more erotica sex. Nothing wrong in that! But its not the kind I want to personally keep reading, so I tend to vary my reading material to make each genre new again, if you know what ...more
A desperate man. A kidnapping. A villain. A slow and reluctant friendship then romance begins and progresses to a powerful love between two people who will touch your heart and then crush it when they separate.
Ms. Lemmon develops her characters beautifully. I felt like I was there with them and I got to know them. She has written one of the most romantic love stor ...more
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 mo ...more
Tucker has some issues, he's been through some things but damn if the boy ain't sexy, “that’s not it, trust me.” His voice is low and husky when he says, “I want you to touch me.” This book was heartfelt and it wasn't hard to fall in love with Tucker. ...more
Love um' or hate um' Lemmon writes characters that get the reader emotionally invested. Tucker Noscalo is one such character. At first glance, he is a rebel and criminal who turned his back on his middle class upbringing, but as Lemmon peeled back his layers, she melted my heart. He will make mistakes that will anger you, but he is redeemable and worthy so read on.
Morgan Young is celebrating her twenty-first birthday and everything that can go wrong ...more
This is my first book from Jessica Lemmon and I loved it!
“She’s light. I’m darkness. I have no way to hide with her near.”
Tucker is a broken man, and I rooted for him throughout the book. I think if we didn’t have his perspective, it would have been a different story. I fell in love with Tucker.
I mean come on who doesn’t love a tortured hero or anti-hero.?
“I never earned you.”
Oh I swooned like a love sick pup ...more
This book was so, so good. I have to admit, I'm a sucker for a criminal hero...the ultimate bad boy. The twist in this story though...Tucker's father is the chief of police in their community. Oh yeah, there's MUCH MORE to Tucker's story than what everyone sees.
There is so much deep emotion to this book. Tucker is trapped. He can't go back to jail. He just can't and then just like a sign from Heaven, Morgan is thrown into his path. Morgan, whose father is one of the best defense attorn ...more
This is a different book from Lemmon of what I become to expect from her but I loved it. In this book Lemmon pushes the boundaries of a hero that I loved, hated and wanted to rescue.
The story starts off with Tucker being released from prison and looking to finally make his dad pay for the horrible past he and his bother endured. What Tucker doesn't plan is to run in Morgan.
Morgan is having the worst birthday. She finds out her boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend. After walking to get ...more
