Forgetting You Forgetting Me by Monica James • FMR REVIEW

Monica James
Series: Memories From Yesterday Book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: June 26th 2017


 My name is Lucy Tucker, and my life…it was perfect.

I worked the dream job. I had the most incredible family and friends. My home, Whispering Willows, a ranch in Montana, was everything I could ever wish for. My adoring fiancé, Samuel Stone, loved me unconditionally.

I had everything a girl could ever want.

But one fateful event shattered my perfect life. It’s unimaginable how simple, ordinary words can change a person’s life forever. For me those words were, “There’s been an accident.”

I thought Sam was my forever, but that forever came to a close the day Saxon Stone, Sam’s identical twin brother, came back. Saxon returned to Montana to help save Sam, however, the moment he entered my life, he turned my world upside down. But through chaos I somehow found clarity—clarity of who I was meant to be.

As time progressed, as seasons changed, and as a fire began to burn, I soon realized that Saxon was there for another reason…he was there to help save me.

Review by: Leeann 

Holy Hell!! This is one of those stories that grips you right from the beginning. It draws you in fast and keeps youemotionally captivated throughout the whole story.

It’s not often a book comes along and knocks your socks off but this one did.

Lucy is the female lead character and I have to say, the woman is a saint. Her threshold for being treated like crap is sky high and seemed to have no limit. What can I say about Sam.. Not much really, except to say I didn’t much like him.
Then there is Saxon. Like Lucy, he has a high tolerance. But he has no choice because the person giving them all grief is his twin brother Sam.
I guess anyone in Sam’s situation would react badly but he just took it to the next level. He really didn’t show any redeeming qualities!

I guess Lucy and Saxon may have crossed the line, but under the circumstances you can see how they got to that point.

What I really liked about this book is the way it is written draws out so many feelings and emotions from the reader. Even though I disliked one of the characters I still loved the book as a whole because of the feelings the story evoked.  
Lucy’s journey is one of self discovery. She is learning how to be her again & she is loving it. It is nice to read about a woman who reclaims her identity & stands up for herself.

As the story progresses you see some of the things Lucy believed abut her life are not quite accurate and when the truth comes out nothing will every be the same.

Absolutely loved this book, the characters were fabulous, the story line amazing and the writing second to none. Well worth the read!!

“Let’s pretend tomorrow doesn’t exist.” Pressing his forehead to mine, he earnestly says, “Whatever happens now, it’ll just be memories from yesterday.” I can feel the tremble rumble throughout his entire body, and his uncertainty leaves me abandoning any lingering doubts. For this stolen moment in time, I just want to…feel.
Gently pushing on his bare, solid chest, he allows me to climb onto his lap as he nestles into the rocky terrain. Without a second thought, I wrap my legs around his waist and hold on tight, with no intention of ever letting go. His chest is rising and falling so quickly, I’m certain I can hear his heart hammering wildly within his body. The cadence matches mine as I seal my mouth around his. The touch of his full lips pressed to mine is complete perfection. But when he angles my mouth at the perfect slope and skillfully tangles my tongue with his, I know that this is nirvana.
The kiss at first is slow, like a roller coaster beginning its incline. But as we reach the pinnacle, it’s an exhilarating head rush of fast, breathtaking passion. When he senses me coyly opening up, lowering my guard and losing myself in the moment, he growls into my mouth. He dominates me with a fierce desire and in this moment, I am his.
I can’t keep up with the frantic pace, and finally, I surrender all I am. I allow him total control, melting when he sucks my bottom lip with a long, wet pull. I madly fuse our lips together, unable to get enough of this heady feeling, needing him to consume me, devour me, make me whole.
