Forgetting August by J.L. Berg

I have read a couple of books where one of the main characters is suffering from amnesia, and honestly some times it works and sometimes, at least for me, it falls flat. In this case, I kind of loved it. Okay, I really actually loved it completely. This book is the perfect amount of trying to figure out who someone is and who that someone was. This book was super emotional, even though one party really had no idea what had happened in his life to make it the way that it was, but man, this was a great journey to go on. Also the was this book ending, I seriously remember being super bummed that I had to wait for the next book to come out, because I wanted to devour it all in the same night. So our heroine in this story is Everly, whose name I kind of love. When the story starts its very clear that she has some emotional trauma that she is trying to move beyond. Her life is settled now though, she has a fiancee and enjoys her simple job at the coffee house and is really kind of picking up with her life and moving forward.

So to begin Camryn is coming back to her home town after her mother passed away, and she is there to live in her mother’s house and raise her son. I had a really hard time liking Cam, for some reason I just never formed a real connection to her as a character. I think part of my problem was that the story seemed to move too fast for me, and there were certain parts that came off as choppy, like it bounced around a bit. Also I had a problem liking Cam because she came off a bit to self-absorbed and the other characters in their book were like falling all over themselves to make sure she was happy, like if she had a bad day at work, she could go home, etc. Cole as a love interest wasn’t too bad, he’s definitely a good looking guy, and he comes off as a genuinely good guy. But their relationship seemed to happen in the blink of an eye, and I didn’t really get invested in the relationship […]
