Forget Me Not by Q.B. Tyler
What do you do when the love of your life forgets?
Not the good times.
Not the love.
Not the passion.
But the pain and heartbreak and betrayal.
He doesn’t remember that he broke my heart.
But I do.
He doesn’t remember the darkest parts of our marriage.
He doesn’t remember that six months ago, I said goodbye.
What do you do when the love of your life remembers your marriage but not your divorce?

This second chance romance is a first time read of QB Tyler for me. I received this book in a subscription box and was not disappointed.
I love a book that rips my heart out, stomps on it, mauls it and then patches it up and pats it back in your chest. I’m here for the emotional trauma. And this book dishes it out and serves it up like a Michelin-rated restaurant.
We are introduced to Olivia as she races to her soon-to-be ex-husbands bed side after a car accident. Turns out Bennet has lost the last two years – amnesia is wild!! So for Bennet, they’re still happily married and completely into each other. And you can see and feel his love and lust for his wife, it’s tangible. But Olivia is at a loss – they separated months ago, a divorce was impending. What to do?!
This was a read of two people finding their way back to each other after failing each other (and themselves). It wasn’t that they didn’t love each other… It was that love wasn’t enough without communicating and working through tragedy, grief, poor decisions, etc. The human experience, really. They learn to communicate and heal and find a path back to each other.
I loved how sexy and intense their relationship and connection was. My heart was broken alongside theirs when things sputtered and stalled. I cried when they did and I loved how they loved. This was beautifully written and I loved the spice.
Warning, there is cheating involved so if that’s a nonstarter for you, then this isn’t for you. But if you like a story of second chances, redemption, intense passion… I highly recommend it!
