Forgotten Promises (Promises #2) by Elle Brooks

Available on
Amazon * * Goodreads


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.


*Please note: You should have read book 1, Promises Hurt, already. This is a continuation of the same story and might contain spoilers for that book. Also a slight spoiler for this story is below, but it is something you do find out pretty quick. Just wanted to warn people in case you want to go in blind like I did. *

Forgotten Promises was a great read. The first book was cute, and once I started this one and realized what was going on I thought this could be iffy, this could be not so good, but in reality I loved it more than the first one. Blaire and Ethan are so great together. This story just really reinforced that and oh they were so sweet. 

The last book ended with Blair, Ethan, and Ethan's dad in a car accident. Ethan's dad had picked the two of them up from jail and was driving them home when he started in on Ethan. Only this time Ethan wouldn't just sit there and take it. He couldn't deal with his dad saying mean things about Blair. He loves her. He would do anything for her. It was really crazy as it just ended and you didn't know what happened to anyone. 

This book picks up right where that left off with everyone in the hospital. Oh it was a bit heartbreaking seeing the injuries everyone sustained. Blaire is so strong in this story. She tries and tries to do the right thing, but people keep putting her in bad situations. People keep trying to make her promise not to tell people things and she doesn't like it. It was a bit stressful at times, but she really is a sweetheart. 

And Ethan? Oh I loved reading him in this story. Even more than in book one. He has a lot going on. He is not really sure what happened or even who Blair is. Oh, he killed me! Through the story you can really see how strong of a connection these two have. Even though he doesn't remember her, he wants to be near her. He wants to be with her. He knows that she is something special and that he is incredibly lucky to have found her. Oh it was cute. 

So there are a lot of bumps in the road in this chapter of their story. With the accident and everything that happens, everything with Ethan's dad and the secrets his mom tries to make Blaire keep, with Ethan slowly remembering things, it is not smooth sailing. But these two cannot stay apart. They are just too cute together. I loved this story. It was even better than the first book and I can't wait to read more from the author.
