After two years in a coma, August Kinkaid has forgotten the darkness in his past. But his past hasn’t forgotten him. His beautiful former fiancée, Everly, remembers every tumultuous moment of their stormy relationship. The sizzling passion. The web of lies. And the terrible secret Everly’s been hiding since her last fateful night with August.
Now the truth is out and August remembers everything. As his long-buried memories come flooding back, he begins to understand why Everly would want to move on with her life. Why she would give her heart to another man. And why August should try to forget her once and for all.
But he can’t give up on the only woman he’s ever loved. Even if he has to reopen old wounds–and face the darkest demons of his past–August will do whatever it takes for a second chance with Everly. He let her slip away once. He’s not about to spend the rest of his life remembering Everly when he could be holding her in his arms forever . . .

I want to start by saying that the first book, Forgetting August is in my top 20 favorite books. Loved it! Drama, angst, love gone awry, redemption, mystery….it was a page turner for sure…I could NOT wait for its sister book to come out. But I have to say I was some what disappointed in it. For those of you who have not read the first book, you need to read it first to know what is going on.
This books finds us with Everly counting down the days to her wedding to Ryan and August still struggling with his memories and trying to move on. It just dragged on and on for me with August and his memories, and Everly’s struggles for both men.
Questions don’t get answered until almost the end of the book and it was wrapped up so quickly I almost got whiplash. I did however like how all things got tied up and was happy with that. I just wish things had moved along a little faster during the first 3/4 of the book. I would tell readers to still definitely give this series a go, you will love the characters and their struggles and be cheering for a HEA.
