5 ‘must-read’ STARS!!!
Any book that is inspired by true events should be read. Now I know some things can be dashed into the recipe to fill in gaps with angst or some other such emotion, but all in all – someone lived those pages. Spoke those words. Felt those feelings. Dwelled upon those decisions. The circumstances caused someone to write it all down so that it can be enjoyed by anyone else. And Make Me Forget was thoroughly enjoyed by me!
“They have no idea what I’m like inside… dark, desolate, isolated, empty, used, and dirty.”
This book really did have it all. Tortured characters, a love triangle, super secondary characters, and ALL the feels you can imagine! I was taken on this journey – catapulted into this book. Even though I did, it was very difficult to put it down – who else was going to let the dog out and make my kids’ lunches for school? There is so much to this book so I’m just going to skim the top.
I’m simply in awe of Chloe Evans. She was undeniably strong and resilient. But Chloe had an unimaginable tragedy tear her family apart. She saw herself as anything but unwavering. As are all college students, Chloe was a work-in-progress. She set goals and having a boyfriend did not make the list. She’s ready to move on and not look back. Seriously inspiring!
“I am no longer going to allow what happened define me. It’s not who I am. It’s not who I want to be.”
In addition to Chloe’s terrifically written character we have, not one, but two possible love interests! Now I’m not going to throw out any spoilers – so I’m not mentioning names. But wow! They were best-friends and totally opposite.
“How in the world am I going to keep my thoughts and feelings at bay when it is obvious my best friend is already developing feelings for the only girl who’s ever made my pulse hum?”
One ‘bad-boy’ with tattoos who was arrogant and confident. And one ‘pretty-boy’ with a sweet, sexy voice. The guys are great to read. Each one having their idiosyncrasies and pros and cons. But who is best for Chloe? Or is there a best?
“He pushes my boundaries; encouraging me to do spontaneous things. He makes my heart pound out of control whenever he’s near, sends my pulse racing. I’ve never met anyone like him”
There are many bumps in the book. And although I wanted to throw my kindle and could be seen screaming at the characters, each bump pulled me that much further. Giving me an unrelenting need to get the answers that, eventually, left me satisfied. One of the best parts of this book is that it’s written in triple POV. Chloe and guys have their own voice at different times. It’s a feat to get inside a man’s mind so I particularly love when authors do that! Another thing I adore authors for – an epilogue! Yes, there’s an epilogue. And yes, we get a HEA! 🙂 Round of applause to Brandy Lynn whose debut Make Me Forget was amazing!
