Review: Forgetting You by L.A. Casey

Posted on

In this fiery new romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L.A. Casey, can she unlock her memories—and find true love?

When Noah Ainsley wakes up in a hospital room with no recollection of how she got there, all she knows is that she needs to see Elliot, the love of her life. Then she learns the horrifying truth: her short-term memory has been destroyed by a car accident. She and Elliot broke up five years ago. And now she’s married to Anderson, a man she doesn’t even recognise.

In an instant, Noah’s world is turned on its head. All she wants is Elliot by her side, but it’s clear Anderson is hurt by her rejection. Can she really have fallen in love with this stranger? Nothing makes sense—and when even Elliot refuses to answer her questions, Noah is left feeling all alone.

But as her memories slowly return, Noah begins to wonder if she’s been wrong to shut Anderson out—and wrong to put all her trust in Elliot. The ex she loves and the husband she doesn’t remember hold the keys to her past. And when the truth is finally revealed, which future will Noah’s heart choose?

MY REVIEW

Forgetting You is the lastest second chance romance from author L.A. Casey and it follows the story of Noah and Elliott. When Noah wakes up in a hospital room, she has no idea what happened to her or how she got there. Her brain seems to be stuck 5 years in the past. Noah is horrified to learn that Elliott is no longer hers and that she’s married to someone else. Even though Noah is married to someone else, she can’t deny the pull she feels towards Elliott. Elliott brings Noah calm in an otherwise chaotic world. Noah has a million questions and unfortunately no answers. When the truth finally comes out, Noah must decide which path is right for her….

Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. I feel in love with the cover and synopsis immediately. I loved the idea of the story and couldn’t wait to dive in. Noah’s story intrigued me and kept me coming back for more. What was she doing that night? Why was she with Elliott’s sister? How did Elliott and Noah break up? And who the heck is Anderson??

However, there were quite a few things that just didn’t add in this story for me. First of all, I wanted more of a connection and chemistry with Noah and Elliott. Yes, we saw some flashbacks of their past, but I needed more. I needed to see how Elliott was struggling without Noah; how he still held onto his feelings for her despite her being married to someone else. Speaking of being married to someone else, we didn’t really get a lot of answers when it comes to Anderson. I feel like this story could have benefited from a chapter or two from Anderson’s point of view just so the reader could get a feel for him and see his connection to Noah. One of the biggest issues I had was Noah pursuing her feelings for Elliott even though she was technically with Anderson. I understand that she went through major trauma, but it just didn’t make sense. It frustrated me that Elliott went along with it and that is just a big no-no for me. I also felt like the story resolved itself far too quickly. All this build-up and climax and then the story was just over.

I wanted to love this book so much, but in the end, it just left me feeling meh. I guess you could say I had quite the love-hate relationship with this book. I think this is a book that may work for some and leave others hanging. I do think this book had some good things going for it, it just wasn’t a 100% hit for me. That being said, I’m still glad to have checked this book out.
