Top 100 Amazon BestSeller in Coming of Age and New Adult Romance
2016 RWA® RITA® nominated romance novel 

When today's promises become tomorrow's lies, how can you believe in anything . . . or anyone?

Jaynie Cumberland has no idea how to trust again, so she's given up on trying. Dumped in to the state foster care system at age fourteen, Jaynie spent three years treading water, just trying to get by.

Still, Jaynie always knew she was broken in some way. After all, why did her own mother abandon her? And following a harrowing experience at her first foster home, Jaynie's worst fears are confirmed, leaving her feeling worthless and shattered.

Now Jaynie counts the days till she turns eighteen and can go out on her own. All she wants is to be free of everyone and everything. But before that can happen, she must make it through the next few months at one final foster home. There Jaynie meets a gorgeous, albeit rough-around-the-edges, boy who is dealing with the repercussions of his own turbulent past.

Flynn O'Neill is immediately taken with this new, fragile girl. He becomes determined to show Jaynie there is more to life than hurt and pain. Unfortunately, this new home they live in, one that promised to be a haven for unwanted kids, is more like a living hell.

So what do you do when you're trapped and there's no way out?

What if you fall in love and protecting the other person becomes the most important thing in your life?

What if something unthinkable happens, testing your love, and the stakes are raised higher than ever? Will you come out unscathed? Can today's promises be kept? Or will they simply become more of tomorrow's lies?

Tomorrow's Lies is a beautiful story of an all-consuming love and broken people building a family out of nothing. It's about never giving up, even in the face of adversity.

Tomorrow's Lies was a heartbreaking coming of age story and romance. The plot was unique, intense, and riveting; I read straight through because I just had to know what would happen to Flynn and Jaynie and the others. This book is NOT for the feint of heart, but is an achingly beautiful, emotional book that I will not soon forget!

Flynn and Jaynie (and other key characters) are foster children in a very depressing foster home situation: no love, limited clothing, around the clock work to meet quotas, and very little food. They are starved both literally and emotionally. This quote says it all: "The state can call me anything they want, but the truth is I am one of the unwanted, the discarded. Another kid in the system, another cog in a broken wheel." They felt so real to me that I just wanted to take them all in and make things better.

Despite their horrific conditions, and all the baggage that brought them to the foster care system to begin with, the foster kids form a sort of broken family of their own. And yes, Flynn and Jaynie fall in love. Unfortunately one of the ladies in charge of their care fancies Flynn for herself, and that puts Jaynie in great danger. It's only months until three of the five of them reach the age of 18, but can they hold out until then? And what will happen with the eight year old twins?

This was my first book by S.R. Grey, but it certainly won't be my last. I fell in love with her writing and her characters from the first few pages of Tomorrow's Lies. This book and its tagline will be haunting me for a long time to come: "When today's promises become tomorrow's lies, how can you believe in anything . . . or anyone?"

I reviewed this book on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium.

This is the story of jaynie and flynn, two foster kids living in the same placement. They quickly fall in love and work hard at surviving the terrible events happening in that house.

The characters were likable, the story interesting but i found it a bit slow in the last quarter. I gave this book 3.5 stars. Well written and enjoyable but i dont have a burning desire to buy book #2.

A sweet story that you might enjoy 😊

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking and beautiful story 30 August 2016
By L. Feldstein - Published on

Have tissues at the ready because Tomorrow's Lies is an emotional read. Though some have wonderful experiences being placed in good homes that eventually lead to permanent families, not all kids see the better side to fostering in the foster care system. Tomorrow's Lies depicts the uglier side to things when the system fails and the kids suffer for it. A woman and her daughter run a foster home where the kids are worked to exhaustion, penalized for not meeting work quotas, and food is a luxury to be earned. When Jaynie is placed in this home she's already of the mind set that she just has to bide her time before she turns eighteen. Despite the hardships she faces in her new residence, she finds a family in the other foster kids, two teens her own age, Flynn and Mandy, and two small children, twins, Callie and Cody. Under extreme conditions, relationships between the kids flourish along with hope, love and friendship. As the group becomes closer and a different kind of love begins to form between Jaynie and Flynn. The kids must cope with the things that haunt their pasts, the uncertainty of their presents and hopes for their future. Everyday is a challenge in patience. As the older kids approach their eighteenth birthdays their lives begin to get more difficult under the roof of their "prison" and the promises they've made for their future begin to unravel.

I really loved Jaynie, Flynn, Mandy and the twins. They balanced each other out wonderfully. Each playing a roll in the family they created under such extreme circumstances. All of them dealing with their pasts in different ways but helping each other to heal. Watching them mend each other was almost heartbreaking because you didn't know if the dreams they had for their futures would happen, or how they would make them happen but you held on to the same hope they did. There were definitely a lot of moments that were crushing. SR Grey didn't hold back in describing what they had been through, especially Jaynie, or what they were going through in their foster home. At times it was shocking but added to the story and how, as a reader, you connected to it. There were a couple areas I wish had a little more development or clarification and one particular thing wasn't fully addressed that kept nagging at me, possibly to be brought up again in the second book. Overall, Tomorrow's Lies was unexpected, in the best way, it will definitely pull at the heartstrings. So many beautiful moments, even in the some of the darkest. I'm looking forward to seeing the next part of these amazing characters story in Today's Promises.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love 9 September 2016

I absolutely love this story. The five main characters are so strong and overcome so much to be a family and learn to love and trust again. I seriously could not (except for when I went to sleep) put this book down ( which it's been awhile since I've been able to get through a book). I felt like I was in the story with them all and this is seriously the first book to make me cry. I can't wait to read the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that should NOT be missed!! 15 November 2015
By Franci Neill - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book grabbed me from the first page. I even wrote to the author and told her I was crying on the train! My heart went out to Jaynie and Flynn and the choices they had to make to move their lives forward.

The book moves between present day and five years earlier leading up to present day. The heartache and physical pain that Jaynie and Flynn experienced while being in the system of foster homes made me cringe inside and out. This book is so beautifully written and from what I've read is unfortunately incredibly accurate for what sometimes occurs in the foster homes that children are supposed to be "safe" in.

Flynn and Jaynie are each other's solace while their inside this particular home. They experience a lot of what they deem to be fun times with each other and Flynn is Jaynie's protector as well. They made a pact with each other that they would get out come hell or high water. Unfortunately, hell comes knocking on their door one night which sets in motion the basis for the rest of the story.

"This is the end - the end of my time with Flynn in this place, the end of easy smiles on warm summer days, the end of the family I cobbled together. But hardest of all to accept is this is the end of Flynn loving me. No one has ever loved me the way he has."

Flynn makes a promise to Jaynie that they'll be together again, but this is what needs to happen right now on this blackest of black nights. As we move through the book we see what leads us up to this fateful night. I so loved how all the foster kids in this home that was supposed to be better than the others, came together to be the family they all so desperately hoped and wished for. Which is sometimes the best kind of family don't you think?

The chemistry between Flynn and Jaynie was so beautiful to watch as they discovered who they could be in each other's arms. As they explore their growing love for each other and explore what it's like to have a normal physical relationship with someone of the opposite sex...

"Keep touching me, Flynn. Please, I need this. I need to know I can be normal."

Words like this should NEVER have to pass anyone's lips. My heart broke for Jaynie when she uttered those words. But the fact that it was Flynn that made her feel "normal" was beautiful to watch. You just know these two are meant to be together in the end. But what must they endure both together and separately before they can get to that point? If only it was easy as they thought it would be. Promises are made that one of them doesn't know about leading them to believe they lied about what their future would be like...

"Today's promises are nothing but tomorrow's lies."

As I got closer to the end of the book, I was feeling anxious because I SO wanted Flynn and Jaynie to have the HEA they so much deserved. I found myself unable to put the book down, no matter if I was going to have a serious book hangover the next day. I HAD to see how this spectacular book ended. And let me tell you, it was well worth how I felt the next morning. You too can have this feeling when you pick up Tomorrow's Lies!

2.0 out of 5 stars I did not enjoy this book at all 4 December 2015
By ali taylor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I kept reading this book until the very end just to say that I had.

I did not enjoy this book at all. The characters and plot twists were among the most predictable that I have encountered. Theres is no suspense, or mystery in this book, and the author fills in the gaps with a lot of nothing

I do not mean to be so harsh, I am an avid reader and the reviews for this book sucked me into it originally, I was just about as disappointed as I have been while reading a book. I finished this book to finish it, but I did not enjoy it.

I gave this review 2 stars, only because I know people looking to read a sentimental love story will be happy with this book. if you are looking for any sort of depth, suspense or mystery, don't bother.
