Bound By Memphis

A fictional romance inspired by true events

Love doesn’t change, people change…

Loosely inspired by true events, Bound by Memphis, by Jennifer J. Hayes, is the steamy, sultry romantic story of Jasmine Henderson, a successful public relations consultant who has everything she’s wanted in life… Well, just about everything. Fourteen years ago, while planning her wedding to Melvin Brown, better known as MB, she was left at the altar with no explanations.

Although she assumed she’d never move on, she ended up meeting and marrying the love of her life, Chauncey M. Henderson, and having a child, years later. It’s when Jasmine’s latest work venture places her in the city that holds memories to her past, Memphis, MB resurfaces when he learns she’s back in town. Although Jasmine loves her husband, her son, and her life, she can’t deny the passion and chemistry that she once shared with MB. Briefly away from her family and home in Dallas, Jasmine is left alone to deal with these emotions and unresolved questions of MB. She goes looking for answers to why he walked away. When forced to confront painful memories she awakens something she thought died long ago.

In this novel, Jasmine discovers herself as she explores the depths of her former love versus her current life, and learns “Love doesn’t change, people change.” Bound by Memphis takes you on an insightful journey of love, joy, and pain, and gives a deeper meaning to why sometimes “you have to lose happiness to find it again.”

Gazing out into the distance, I could see the ripples of the Mississippi crashing against the rocks, and I began reflecting on all that it personified. It represented so much. I would never forget the day that I finally let go of it all, “The Dream,” as I use to call it…

There was nobody like Melvin Brown. He surely set the beat to his own drum, and even though I had known him for over twenty years, I still hadn’t figured him out. I had stopped trying, many years ago.

As we got closer, I noticed a white sign, swinging on a post, that read, “Welcome to Heart’s Content. Heart’s Content? “How ironic,” I thought.


One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Whether it's guilt, anger, love, loss or betrayal. Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go. I want each of you to know that your loss did not end your ability to write new chapters in your book of life. After all, the chapters you have yet to write might just be the best part of your story. The return to love for me was a return to life. I am so thankful to Jennise Beverly for giving me the opportunity to speak to all of you beautiful ladies. Best of luck on your journey! ...
