About FORGETTING AUGUST

She can forgive, but can she forget? Some days, Everly still thinks she sees him. In the food court at the mall, or in a car speeding past as the light changes. It only lasts a second, but when it happens, she slips back to a time when she was ruled-and nearly ruined-by August Kincaid. And it doesn't matter that she's moved on, that she's about to marry another man. In those moments the only thing she can do to regain control is take a deep breath and remind herself that August can't hurt her-because he's in a coma. Except that he's not anymore. August is awake. With no memories, he sets out to solve the mystery of his lost life. He unearths a photograph of a beautiful redhead named Everly and knows instinctively that she's the key. But when he finds her, the August she describes is more monster than man. Tortured by the thought of having hurt her, August wants only to become the man Everly deserves. As the new August emerges, Everly glimpses the person she first fell in love with. But can she trust that this August is real? When the final secret of their shared past is revealed, one of them will make a choice that changes their future forever . . .

My Forgetting August Review . . .

Okay! Let's start with first, that I love J.L. Berg. And second if you aren't a fan of cliffhangers than I would suggest waiting for book 2, Remembering Everly which comes out April 5/16, because we are left with a doozy of a cliffhanger.  

I went into this book not knowing too much and I was immediately hooked.  Throughout the book we started to unpeel all the layers giving us more and more of the back story between August and Everly.  At the beginning, I didn't know to love her hate August when I was reading from Everly's POV, but when I was reading from August you couldn't help but love him.

~They didn't run after me.  They know my routine. I always ran, always fled. ~

As for Everly, she had many strong points and also some not so flattering points.  Normally I don't love heroines who run away at the start of trouble, nor heroines who waiver back in forth between me.  And Everly had both of these qualities in spades, however since we were missing so much of the back story which was a slow build throughout I was able to overlook the qualities for the most part.


Now, lets talk about Ryan.  He was written in a way that you couldn't help but like him.  From the choices he made, to his actions.  But for me I still wanted August more for Everly, there emotional bond was too strong to ignore for them and the reader.

As we start to get more and more of the story behind August's amnesia and the past secrets you get more hooked, but once we finally think things are going to go smoothly the past comes back to haunt both of these two.

"Took you long enough."  

Gotta admit I'm so not okay with Everly's decision when faced with her past.  Actually now that I think about it more, it's how she faces all her decisions.  This is when her running gets tiresome.  Back and forth, and back and forth but never can she just be content with herself.  If she was able to do that, then she would make way better decisions and choices.  She let the past happen by hiding and never really finding out why or what was going on.  Now to only repeat the same mistake.


Then just as I was getting okay with her decision, even though I wasn't happy about it.  The secrets all come out leaving us with a whopper of a cliffhanger.  Now April feels ions away :( until we get to find out how everyone fairs after the truth and past finally being revealed.

Did I like this book?  Yes, very much as it had me engaged from beginning to end.  Will I read more from the series? Yes, of course.  After that ending you can't NOT read the next book.  Am I team Ryan or team August?  Team August all the way.  As I know there is more behind his behavior and the past but we have to wait to find out what it is in Remembering Everly.

4 Engaging Thumbs up!
