About this ebook

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 . . .

***CLIFFHANGER WARNING*** If you don't like stories with cliffhangers, turn away now and come back in April 2016 when Remembering Everly releases. *** END WARNING *** That said, I've read a number of books with severe cliffhangers and while Forgetting August has a cliffhanger, I really felt so much had been resolved and the cliffhanger provides an interesting transition into the next part of the story - which comes six months from now. August is a complex character with what every woman in a bad relationship hopes - that her boyfriend can just become someone different. He wakes up after two years in a coma and is a new, gentle man. I love the man he becomes in Forgetting August and how he goes about discovering himself and who he really is. And through his journey of self-discovery, Everly discovers things about herself that she'd buried so deep, they likely never would have otherwise seen the light of day. If ever there are two characters that belong together, it's August and Everly, despite everything they've been through as a couple, and each individually. I really believe that in the follow up - Remembering Everly - that they will find their way back to each other. The author creates a wonderful, emotional story with flawed characters and secrets abounding. The reader will not see the cliffhanger coming and this reader audibly gasped when I read those final pages. So much has already happened, and so much is left to happen, that will leave the reader on the edge of their seat for the next six months! Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This satisfying conclusion to the Lost and Found series had plenty of angst, tension and feels leading up to the finale. The end of the book left me with a full heart as Everly and August (and some others too) got their happily ever after. There were a couple surprises along the way that I never saw coming, as well as a couple things that I expected to happen which never did. The story wasn't predictable, which I greatly appreciated. Overall, this series made me a rock solid fan of this author and I'm certain to read anything and everything he has written and will write in the future. Great story, great characters and beautifully written love story!

I loved the story, though I could have done without all of the back and forth every time things got rough. I wasn't thrilled with the ending, but I understand it all. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book!
