Product Description

Product Description

More Than A Memory is Book 1 in the Cottage Grove Series. Each book can be read as a standalone complete with a HEA. Other books in the Cottage Grove Series are: More Than A Fling and More Than A Friend.

Disappearing without a word, Eden Richardt fled from her naïve former life in Oregon to start anew in the Midwest. Being a morning radio show host, she’s got a lot going for her except finding someone to share her life with. In that aspect, no one seemed to compare to the one. Having absolutely no desire to step foot back in her hometown of Cottage Grove, her decision was swayed with an invitation to her high school reunion and solidified after receiving a letter from her first and only love from her past.

Living his life the best way he knows how, Baylor Jenkins spends his time running the family plumbing business, after giving up his dream to be an Architect, and raising his almost teenage daughter solely without the help of his ex-wife. In the back of his mind he knows something was missing from his otherwise enjoyable life. But that something was actually a someone who disappeared after graduation; a former best friend turned lover.

Locking eyes after fifteen long years raises deep emotions and unanswered questions:

What happened to make Eden run?

Could their love for each other still exist?

Or will their past time together be nothing more than a memory?

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love instantly with this story!!! 23 March 2015
By Tiffany Williams - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Often times you heard about best friends becoming lovers and it didn't always work out in the end. Did I think Eden and I were an exception to that? I suppose only time would tell."

One of my favorite types of stories to read are those involving rekindled romances. This book quickly became one of my favorites.

High school reunions can be fun. Seeing your old friends, talking to people you haven't seen since you graduated, and bringing up all the good memories. For Eden Richardt, it was the hardest thing she could ever go to. See, Eden left her hometown the day after graduation and never looked back. She went to college, became a successful radio personality, and lived a great life in Nashville. Until one day a letter was read on air that sealed her fate.
She was going back home.

"I feel like everything that has been missing in my life has been found when I'm with him."

Baylor Jenkins fell in love in high school. The only problem was that he couldn't tell her. This girl was his best friend. How could he possibly tell her his feelings and her not flip out? What he didn't know was she felt the same. The night of graduation, he finally made his move only to have her vanish the next day. Now this reunion is coming up. Will she come? Will she explain why she left so suddenly?
Will she ever be his?

"I've missed you so much, Eden. I've caught myself many times over the years thinking about you and wondering if you were truly happy in all aspects of your life. I know it's inevitable but I'll continue to beat myself up over not going after you."

I loved Eden and Baylor from the start. Those two along with their other best friend, Dean, made this story truly come to life. The Three Musketeers, as they called each other, were a true testament of what friendship is. Even though Eden had left Baylor and Dean fifteen years ago, they still had this undeniable connection. I found myself wanting to be a part of their group. I have to admit that Dean is too funny and swoonworthy in his own right;)

Another dynamic of the book is the character Norah. She is Baylor's twelve year old daughter. She is quirky, fun, and always looking out for her dad. Which is why she will do anything to make this romance between him and Eden to come together. I loved the closeness that Baylor had with his daughter.

You also have Eden's friends back in Nashville. Her co-worker, Blaine, and her best girlfriend, Julia. Even though Julia couldn't be with Eden during this reunion, she never stopped helping her through everything. She knew why Eden ran all those years ago, and she was determined to keep her strong. But there's only so much you can do when fate and love have other plans.

"Just don't falling in love with him, Eden, you've gotta protect your heart."
"Oh you won't have to worry about that, I won't go falling in love with him. You can't fall in love with someone you already still love."

It's amazing what happens to people after they don't see each other for fifteen years. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! I'm such a hopeless romantic.

"You were it, Baylor. No guy in high school would've ever compared. No guy still compares to you. You set a pretty high standard."

"This woman, whether she knew it or not, owned me and my heart. She always had the ability to strip me bare of my emotions and leave me raw. I hoped that I consumed her even a fraction of what she had consumed me."

I can not tell you all the things I loved about this story! The friendship, the love, the family, and the struggle of it all. Every little detail and feature made me feel so much emotion. Not just the lovey parts, but the funny side-spliting parts, and the heartbreaking moments that leave you with a tear in your eye.

I can't wait to read more about these characters!! I tell you that I need more of all of them. I know they arent done yet:)

I love when a book just takes you to the basics of love-first love. They say that your first love is the hardest thing you'll ever get over. For some, like Eden and Baylor, it's the one thing you always strive for.

"She had the most important part of me that she could always keep and hold close,
my heart."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Second Chance 12 January 2015
By Kelly with Sugar Shack - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
More Than A Memory was a second chance love story about the one that got away and now thank you to a class reunion might have another chance!
We meet Eden who left her hometown suddenly with no explanation and now it is time for her High School Reunion which Eden has no desire to go to, that is until she receives a letter and soon enough she is packing up her bags an heading back home!
Baylor is still living in his hometown with his daughter from his ex-wife Kristina. He has always wondered what happened to Eden after that one night back in high school!
I read and finished this book basically in one sitting. Right from the beginning I was rooting for Eden and Baylor!! But has too much happened in the past to get in the way of these two and their amazing chemistry together? I loved all the characters in this book, especially Baylor's daughter there were times where I was actually giggling! Amber did an amazing job once again on this book and I will admit I am hopeful for more!! I would definitely recommend this book to everyone especially those that love a second chance at love!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a must read! 15 January 2015
By Kellierm77 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I L-O-V-E-D this book! I have read book one in the Brown County Series and that was good but had nothing on this! If what is meant to be will be, the couple in this book were meant to be. Misunderstanding and lies tore them apart and misunderstanding and lies brought them back together almost 20 years later. This is a not to miss read, one you will not want to forget when it is finished- definitely pick this up!

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT and A WINNER 12 January 2015
By MJSanders1021 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I truly enjoyed the love story of Baylor and Eden. 15 years of miscommunication brought together by an on air letter than had everyone encouraging the return for her high school reunion. What Eden didn't expect was the lies, truths, and revelations that came all in one week. Baylor was a fighter and had a partner in crime in the form of a 13 yr old. Oh and the surprises were to screech over. Yep Amber has another winner.
