At the Risk of Forgetting by AM Wilson • REVIEW

Cami has come a long way from the scared girl who left home at sixteen and pregnant. With hard work and determination, she’s built her daughter a dream life in Arrow Creek, West Virginia. As a single mom, career paramedic, and a homeowner, she doesn’t have time to entertain love. Or men. Or sex. Definitely forget about dating.
Fast forward fourteen years, she stumbles upon her childhood best friend and love, Lawrence ‘Law’ Briggs, at the local coffee shop. A painful confrontation ensues and challenges her carefully constructed reality. Her strength wavers with Law’s reappearance as half-truths are revealed and memories flood through the barrier. Each encounter uncovers the remnants of their deep feelings, but the pain and guilt between them leads Cami to believe they could never work through their past. Dark secrets hold them apart. The deepest betrayal imaginable.
Her daughter was a gift she'd never regret, even if it meant she lost him forever. The answer seems simple, but it’s not. Years of hurt and suffering can’t hide that Law still loves her, but is that love enough?

You can grab your copy for only .99c. The price will go up shortly after release!

Review by: Tatia 

This story has put me through the ringer. My emotions have whiplash from the back and forth, bouncing off the walls, being anxious one second and pissed off the next. If you want a book that is going to have you experiencing every emotion possible, from beyond happy to scared to pissed and then right back to the beginning, A.M. Wilson wrote the perfect story for you.

Law and Cami have been best friends since they were 7 and Law moved to town. They've basically been attached at the hip. At some point, they moved right into loving each other. It was a natural progression that just happened. Until one day it all changed. That's a day that changed everything for the next 14 years until they are faced with each other again. They had hopes and dreams that included each other. Nothing is ever set in stone. They'll be the first to tell you. People and their situations are not always what meets the eye.

I swear, at parts I thought Law was more emotional and hormonal than a woman. He was so back and forth. I understood where it was all coming from, but that didn't mean it didn't irritate me a little. He had a lot to take in. As did Cami at some points. She's survived this long. It's been her and her daughter. They've made this great life with a few friends that helped them along the way. Cami wouldn't have made it this far without her best friend.

There was one point while reading that I looked up to my left. At a picture of my kids and just broke down. It was an extremely emotional part of the story. It took everything in me not to sob uncontrollably. That's kind of how this story is. While it has many parts that has you smiling like a fool, there were also countless times when I found myself on the verge of tears. This is a story of limitless love, growth, loss, forgiveness, and new beginnings. It's a beautiful story that I found myself completely immersed in and unable to put it down. At the Risk of Forgetting is a story I'm guaranteed to never forget. Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking.
