SynopsisMy life was perfectly mapped out for me since before the day I was born. I followed it, begrudgingly, because it’s what was expected. And then one day, everything changed. I woke up. Different. Independent. Free from all the rules that had surrounded me. Only I have no idea how I got to where I am. I have no memory of graduating college. No memory of Adam, the boyfriend I live with. He loves me. And I love him. At least that’s what everyone says. Except when my memories return to me as dreams, I see a different man than the one everyone claims is perfect for me. He terrifies me. He makes my heart race and he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before. I have no idea if I want to welcome the emotional roller-coaster that his piercing brown eyes and messy black hair puts me on every time I get a glimpse of him, or if I want to run back to the safe shelter of the scripted life-plan that used to be mine.
(I received this novel from the author for a honest review.)
What a beautiful story. I have read a few novels which one of the main character has lost all memory of their previous life, but the authors often take a turn with the plot. Reading this novel was like a breath of fresh air. The struggle each character experienced was heart wrenching. The connection between Amy and Adam was beautiful.
Remembering Us is the story of Amy and her struggle to decipher the state of her life after she loses all memory of the last two years. With her boyfriend Adam by her side, who now is complete stranger, Any sets out to make sense of the world around her. Adam now lives each day trying to help Amy regain the memories they made together. However, each time Amy recalls something it tends to showcase Adam in an unforgiving light.
Will Amy be able to learn to love Adam again? Can Adam stand beside Amy's side for better or worse? In sickness and in health? Find out today and pick up a copy of Remembering Us.
“I’m not helping you in order to get a date. I hear you have plenty.”
One side of lips twitches up. “I don’t date, Amy. I don’t need to.”
Right. Because Adam is sex on a stick and most of the girls on campus are willing to jump into his bed without being asked.
“Then you won’t be hurt when I tell you no. Again.”
“I may never recover.” His eyes darken and my belly does that flip-flop thing it’s been doing for the last few weeks when he brushes up against me. I blink, trying to clear my thoughts and regain my sanity, but when I do, Adam’s hand is no longer holding his pencil on the table. Instead, his hand is brushing away a lock of my brown hair and his hand rests on the back of my neck, playing with my hair and pulling me forward.
My breath hitches just as his lips are inches from me. I freeze, putting pressure on his hand to stop the forward movement.
His eyes sparkle in mischief.
“What are you doing?”
His tongue darts out, sucking lightly on his top lip, making it almost disappear. He laughs. “I’m going to kiss you, Ames. And then you’re going to finally agree to a date with me.”
“One kiss and I’ll be unable to resist you? Is that your plan?”
“Sounds like a good plan to me.”I bet his kisses leave a girl gasping for breath and throwing her morals to the floor along with her clothes.
