BOOK BLITZ, REVIEW & BLOG TOUR STOP - Forgotten Promises by Elle Brooks



Saying “I Promise” is the easiest thing to do, its just two tiny words. 
No one warned me of the weight they hold, that they not only have the power 
to make something, to give hope, or show devotion. 
They can destroy everything, cause so much hurt, ruin lives. 
Every promise holds a toll, if I had known what mine would cost me, 
I would have walked away. 
Now I have to pay the price, watch the consequences of my actions unfold. Witnessing someone I love crumble after breaking my oath 
isn’t the hardest thing I’ve endured, 
it's being forgotten by the one person that I could never forget.

OMG Elle Brooks, you had me hyperventilating from the minute I read the prologue.  I kept repeating to myself…. It can’t be, it better not be…. With tears in my eyes I really wasn’t sure I wanted to read on….. But thank God I kept reading.  What a remarkable, heart pounding, emotional and intense rollercoaster it was.

Blair
I don’t hear any words through the sound of the blood rushing in my ears.  I can’t do this.  I’m not ready.  I blink and let my first tear fall, no doubt carving the way for more to follow.  I had agreed to come for Moira.  I felt bad that she would have to face this alone.  I look blankly towards the front but I can’t see anything past my pain.

Elle – you truly are a genius at working your words magically in such a way that you captivate and reel in your audience – and me especially who didn’t want to let go.

I absolutely loved it.  It kept me captivated from beginning to end and as I read it in one go.  I just could not put it down.

This story is absolutely moving.  It picks up from where Promises Hurt leaves you with a cliffhanger of that awful car accident.  (You really need to read both of these books – I can’t recommend it highly enough).

It takes you from heart wrenching to heartwarming from cover to cover.

I don’t want to give too much away.  So I’ll try just giving you a bit of why I loved it so much.
The pain of Ethan’s past slowly catches up with him.  How he deals with it is really quite extraordinary for his age.  He is so grown up and mature - but he still has his cocky, cheeky, sexy, outgoing personality as always.

Blair is heartbroken at first, but Ethan has a way of making her feel better. 

Blair really is a beautiful soul.  So kind, loving, selfless and unquestioning.  Her love for Ethan was unconditional.  She was always there for him.  Even when she thought she was doing the wrong thing by keeping promises she knew she couldn’t.

They truly belong to each other.  Even though the circumstances of what was happening and how Ethan was dealing with things, he always had that feeling of love and trust and just knowing that Blair was someone special.  He felt their connection – the electricity between them was so strong that you just could not miss it.

He could feel it – he just knew.  The feelings and emotions between these two were so strong that they really felt so real to the reader.

Their circumstances are traumatic.  So much to re-live, so much to remember and understand.  For some time you think they just may not trust each other enough to work through it.  But the author has you on the edge of you seat, biting your nails as these characters hash it out and eventually work through it together with such faith and trust that they really show how much they are meant for each other.

What will the future hold for Ethan and Blair? 

Will they be able to survive what lies ahead?

I loved every minute of the unknown, the angst, the hurt, the love and anticipating what was coming next.  Mind you every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, I was wrong and pleasantly surprised with every single turn.

It felt so real and true.  It made me feel for them.  The emotions I experienced throughout this book were dramatic to the point where I thought one thing and was relieved when the author took it to another place.  She literally had me on the edge of my seat – with my heart pounding in my chest just wanting to jump into the story with them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Miss Elle Brooks for an absolutely fabulous story.  

A story of two young souls healing each other and never giving up on each other.

Just brilliant.





About the Author




I wasn't planning on falling for Ethan Jamison, hell I wasn't planning on our paths ever crossing. He’s the most popular guy at school and a complete player. Me; I’m the perpetual good girl, trying to carry out one last request. But when you make a promise, how far do you go to see it through? 

~ Blair

It’s a running joke that I’m a terrible liar, if only people knew the truth. My whole life has been spent making excuses and deflecting questions. I was pretty good at it until Blair Thomas entered my world. She saw through the mask that everyone is so willing to accept. She makes me want to tell her all my secrets, but can she promise to keep them?

~ Ethan
