When starting Forgetting August, I just knew I was going to like it. The plot is interesting as well as the characters. This is the first book I've read in a long time in which the main male character and the secondary male character were both equal when vying for my attention. Until the end of the book when I realized there is a different side to August.
I had thought that Everly just misunderstood August and the reasons behind the change in him before the accident that put him in a coma, but after reading the ending, I'm not so sure now. You know the author is talented when you can tell, just from the description and not really anything he said, that the character is more menacing than previously assumed.
The saying 'If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it's yours forever...' was true in Ryan's case. He was honorable in telling Everly that he will wait for her. He was such a good guy, but so was the August that we got to know.
The secret that Everly was keeping had actually fluttered through my mind but I never put much stock into it until the ninety-three percent mark when it was revealed. I can not wait to find out what happens in the next book. I want to see if any of the good August is left and find out if he still has an affect on Everly and Ryan's relationship.
I recommend this book because the storyline is just too good to pass up! I'm sure you'll be left wanting more as well.
She can forgive, but can she forget?
Some days, Everly still thinks she sees him. In the food court at the mall, or in a car speeding past as the light changes. It only lasts a second, but when it happens, she slips back to a time when she was ruled-and nearly ruined-by August Kincaid. And it doesn't matter that she's moved on, that she's about to marry another man. In those moments the only thing she can do to regain control is take a deep breath and remind herself that August can't hurt her-because he's in a coma. Except that he's not anymore.
August is awake. With no memories, he sets out to solve the mystery of his lost life. He unearths a photograph of a beautiful redhead named Everly and knows instinctively that she's the key. But when he finds her, the August she describes is more monster than man.
Tortured by the thought of having hurt her, August wants only to become the man Everly deserves. As the new August emerges, Everly glimpses the person she first fell in love with. But can she trust that this August is real? When the final secret of their shared past is revealed, one of them will make a choice that changes their future forever . . .
