Forget Me Not: Book one of a two book series, started with a bang and continued it’s emotional roller coaster ride to the last emotion filled page.
I loved this story, and I’m not a fan of cliff hangers, but I don’t mind this time around because the anxiety is ramping along with the anticipation of what I know will be an epic heartbreaking, angst filled HEA. So much has happened in this first part, Oliver’s emotions have been tossed around like a ship adrift in angry seas, and Reid has had the opportunity to be who he wants to be, have his fresh start when clearly he was just doing as expected.
Ollie and Reid, are two men who are very perfect for each other. Together their life couldn’t better, except for the chaos of a traumatic brain injury that had Reid losing memories and forgetting important people in his life. Ollie is amazing, and I get the feeling he’s going to need to be the strongest version of himself so that he and his Bluebird can be reunited,
Brooke Blaine is an amazing talent and this series is no exception. I love her writing and I loved this story. I cannot wait for part two, and I’m very glad it’s only a short fortnight away until the much awaited happy ending comes for our two amazing men. I got emotional when everything turned on a dime, but I didn’t cry only because my anxiety was too high to let tears fall. I know with the next book I’m going to need Kleenex.
Oh My God - that ending! I think my heart just broke for Ollie!! Such an amazing and deep read! Ollie has been crushing on Reid for ages, passing him most morning when they stop for coffee at the same convenience store. Things start looking up when Ollie finally learns Reid's name and a few things about him. Sadly that all comes to a halt when Ollie, a paramedic, responds to the scene of an accident to find Reid's car one of those involved, and Reid badly injured. When Reid wakes, he can't remember the last 10 years of his life - but he remembers Ollie.
A friendship between the two forms, which turns into something more. Just when things are looking up, Reid starts to experience debilitating headaches. Ollie knows the signs and takes him to get checked. Ending in a rushed surgery to reduce bleeding on hai temporal lobe, now Ollie faces the fear that the opposite will happen - Reid will wake and not remember him.
So beautifully written - does end on a cliffhanger, so I'm extremely glad the 2nd book in this duet is out already.
An enjoyable read. There was enough heart break and potential to keep the pages turning. From lust at a distance, to saving a life, to making beautiful memories and then back to the beginning with lust from a distance. Leaves on a cliffhanger but you kinda know where its all going to go.... its got it all, good story, honour, integrity, love, lust, action, frustration and emotion. Very Brooke Blaine and look forward to the next book
Devoured this story like my life depended on it! A gorgeous story of lust from afar, to a tragic life saving moment to love. All to be pushed aside when complications from that life saving moment comes into play once again. I cannot wait to see this beautiful story unfold in the next book!!
Forget Me Not was a sweet, light read that I didn’t expect to enjoy as much as I did. It took me awhile to get into the story and the book itself isn’t all that long to begin with. Forget Me Not is the first book in the Unforgettable duet and I’m hoping a lot more depth and story will come from the second book, Remember Me When.
Ollie and Reid’s relationship was a slow burn with little to no drama apart from the giant obvious incident at the beginning and one at the very end of the book. Usually I’d have found a story like this boring as hell and so sweet I’d have gagged. (It was literally that sweet.) BUT, I turned every page eager for more because Brooke Blaine’s storytelling was masterful. The emotional turmoil inside of both of these men was subtle yet undeniable. Nothing was in your face and over the top. Instead their emotions captured my attention through their body language, words and interactions. The story might not have been full of intense angst, but it was filled with subtle moments that brought on just as many feels.
Forget Me Not has set up the duet up with a beautiful beginning you’ll likely adore because it’s pretty impossible not to like these two dudes. I would have loved to have read some of the story from Reid’s point of view, as well as Ollie’s but nevertheless, I enjoyed the story anyway and look forward to more.
This story was really sweet from start to finish. It was well written and full of chemistry. I couldn't put it down from cover to cover I was hooked. This is book 1 in the Unforgettable Series, be warned the ending is a crushing cliffhanger, I'm thankful the wait isn't too long for book 2.

I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Reid and Ollie will steal your heart.. so be prepared for that!! They are so damn sweet and loveable from the very first chapter. This is part one, so also be prepared to want to beg Brooke for book 2 because it definitely leaves you.. wanting more!! Brooke is quirky and it shines through in her quick wit writing, she is definitely an author to get on to if you haven't already.
What an intense, gripping story. Ollie is such a wonderful character and my heart breaks for Reid. I don't usually like stories that end in a cliffhanger but since I knew going in it was a two book story and it drew me in so much I am very happily on to book two
