By the way, you may want to read the first book before reading this review of the second one. They do need to be read in order for you to really grasp what is happening between the two characters. Their story is concluded in this second book, but I have to say that it didn't hold my attention as well as the first one did.
Remembering Everly is the companion book to Forgetting August, which I really enjoyed. The first book ended on a cliffhanger that I had actually thought about but didn't put much stock into until it came in to play.
I was so excited to get into this story. I just couldn't wait to find out how August and Everly were going to work this out because in my opinion there was just no way that they weren't going to be together. The first part of the book was kind of boring. August was doing his thing, Everly was doing hers, and I'm just waiting around for that moment when they realize their lives mean nothing without each other.
The story picks up once Everly makes a huge decision to do what's best for her. I really felt sorry for Ryan though. He was such a good guy and things didn't work out for him yet again in this book. However, you can't stop true love. August and Everly may have a messed up relationship, or did at one point in time, but they are meant to be together and always seem to find their way back.
I still enjoyed finding out what happens between the characters in this book and would recommend it to any New Adult fan, after you read the first story, of course.
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 . . .
