You Promised Me Forever

Would have been a lot better without the teen-like angst of the heroine. It is hard to like a character who has so little self esteem and is constantly sabotaging herself.
Sweet second chances
By Invisible girl246400
I'm relatively new to Monica Murphy. I've read only a few of her books but this one has been my favorite one so far. This story is about second chances. Amanda and Jordan had it all figured out. He was going to go away for college and eventually be in the NFL and she'd be by his side. They would be a forever kind of love. Unfortunately, the distance proved to be too much and decided to break both of their hearts. Fast forward six years later and she can't escape him. She's a glutton for punishment and many would think. She watches all of his games even though she knows it hurts her. While at a bar one night, she decided to watch a show about his life. In this episode, he talked about the one who got away and she instantly knew it was her. It sort of helped that he had photos of her in the background. One thing led to another and she was sliding into his DMs messaging him about a comment that offended her. As time went on, the started messaging each other back and forth. Jordan hadn't heard nor seen Amanda in years and he decides to facetime her. Old habits die hard as well as resentment and she hangs up on him. The next day Jordan is inviting her to see his game, and Amanda simply can't refuse. I mean, who would want to see refuse going to a live game while seeing their gorgeous ex. Amanda brought along a date which changed the entire environment between them. Seeing Jordan for the first time in six years wasn't what she expected. She didn't think she'd still have this pull towards him. Amanda ends up ending things (even though there was really nothing to end) with her coworker Cade. The chemistry between Jordan and Amanda is stronger than before. Unfortunately, these two have hurt each other a lot and insecurities keep coming back. The two of them need to let go of the past if they have any chance of moving forward. Although Amanda obliterated his heart, Jordan can't seem to help himself. He needs Amanda back in his life even if that means she'll crush him again. She was his entire universe, his constant person. Now she's a stranger and he wants her back. He's willing to put everything on the line again even if there's a chance she'd hurt him. Love is all about forgiveness and moving forward. One of my favorite things about this book was how Jordan never gave up on them. He was constantly willing to fight for her and prove to her every step of the way how much he loved her. I thought it was just adorable how he's been love with her since the seventh grade. He waited for his opportunity to get the girl and he did. These two are the definition of second chances and a wholesome sort of love. The book ends in the BEST HEA possible. It's a must read if you love second chances and sweet romances!
When I read that Amanda and Tuttle broke up, I was heartbroken. Completely gutted. These two were perfect for each other and I really thought that they would still be together but that wasn’t the case. I was angry at Amanda for breaking Tuttle’s heart but I was more disappointed in Tuttle for not fighting harder for her. Amanda’s insecurities I can understand because it’s Tuttle: handsome, rich, charismatic and he’s away and not taking any time out for her so I get it but for him to just let her go without a fight was mind boggling. I was crushed but when they reconnected, it was a thing of beauty. I loved how they fell in love with each other again. Maybe they did need time apart to go and see what was important, I just wished they didn’t have to go through it.
Let me repeat that: JORDAN TUTTLE.
Have you missed Tuttle since we last saw him in Forever? Monica Murphy is here with a cure. Even better, she has aged Jordan, making him 25 so that you feel less pervy as you swoon over him.
Monica Murphy establishes the conflict between Jordan and Amanda straight away: she broke up with him six years ago, but neither has forgotten about the other. At all.
So they're apart and we need them together, and the way Monica Murphy does that is perfection. They want to protect themselves from what tore them apart, yet they have missed each other. Can they forgive and, perhaps more importantly, forget?
Since Jordan and Amanda are in their twenties, this book is more of a New Adult than a Young Adult. So you know what that means, right? SEXY TIMES. Oh, Tuttle. As much as I have loved to #CuddleWithTuttle, the 25-year-old you is fan-freaking-tastic.
The ending is perfection, by the way. But it doe nothing to help minimize my Jordan Tuttle obsession.
Which, I suppose, is a good thing.
This book was the perfect ending to their love story. It made me so happy how much they’ve both grown and honestly wish it wasn’t ending it’s such a bitter sweet ending they have been one of my favorite book couples I’ve ever read !

You Promised me Forever is the first book in the Forever Yours series. If you happened to read Monica’s Friends series then you have already met this couple. This is Amanda and Tuttle’s continued story.
Six years. It’s been six years since Amanda broke Jordan’s heart. Over text. They both promised forever but after he went off to college, it got to be too much. He was already becoming a star on the football field and didn’t have time for her. Them. It was now six years later when they reconnect via social media. Are the feelings still there?
Jordan let her go once and he wasn’t planning on letting her ago again if she made the first move. But, will past insecurities, and the more intense fame make history repeat itself?
I loved this story! I have been with this couple since the beginning and so happy that Monica gave us them as adults. It’s brilliant. Beautiful. Sexy. And I can’t wait for what is up next in this series.
“What exactly do you want?” I ask her, my question like a dare.
“Whatever you’re willing to give me,” she answers, her voice soft.
“All relationships have problems, Jordan. We’re not an exception. And we’re definitely not perfect,” I point out.
“Don’t go caveman on me, Tuttle.”
He laughs. “Busting out the last name, huh? Figures.”
This was just what I was waiting for, it was hot, sweet, and swoony. I love Monica Murphy’s style, she always pulls me in. And “You Promised Me Forever” was a fantastic ending to Jordan Tuttle and Amanda Winters’ Love Story. I could not put this story down, once I picked it up I read it in one sitting.
I enjoyed Jordan and Amanda so much. Them reconnecting was super entertaining for me and had me smiling big time. I loved learning about how their break up went down and where they were now in their lives. I loved that they both had moved on with their lives but still kept the memories close to their heart.
I loved Jordan and Amanda’s flirting and banter as they reconnect and get to know each other all over again. I like how Amanda was cautious but some what open. Jordan was so so sweet. Really wooing her and that made me melt. He had matured so much in the six years that they had been apart and was such a likable character. I loved their flirting and the build of heat they had, a seriously great connection. There’s some mild drama that was thrown into the mix, causing some concerns for Amanda but never for Jordan. He was just so solid with his feelings still for her and it totally melted my heart.
Entertaining, sexy, hot and oh so sweet! Another Monica Murphy story that was so exhilarating and that leaves a smile on my face and my heart so happy. If you haven’t read Amanda an Jordan previous books you are missing out. Get them now!! Now I have to read this one again. LOVED IT!
