Book Review: Forget Me Not by Willow Winters

Goodreads Synopsis: 

I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.

I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could.

Until I left him.

I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster.

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.

But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all.

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started.

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.

A love story. Our love story.


Chick and Brain Rating 4 out of 5

Willow Winters never disappoints when she writes a book. She is a one click author for me and will stay that way for a very long time. Forget me not, is NOT what I usually expect from Willows, but it was a welcome surprise. She takes two very sensitive subjects and creates a beautiful love story that in honesty blew me away.

If you have read the prequel to this story you will have a better understanding of what this couple went through in order to reach their happily ever after. They are both broken in a way unimaginable to the average person, Jay worst of all. Although the both had to endure their own hardships once leaving that basement, they were able to find ways to cope. However, the guilt they felt are them apart from the inside.

Winters has an interesting take on Jay and his problems that I have never read before and it was amazing. She was able to show the subject the respect it deserves while creating a beautiful story of healing for both characters. I can not say the plot twist was a surprise for me personal, but it was executed flawlessly.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for something different. Someone looking for the not so cookie cutter love story with the perfect couple. This story or is raw and honest in a way that only Winters can convey

*** I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review ***

 

Until next time,

 

XOXO
