Release Blitz & Book Review: Forget Me Not by Willow Winters

 Forget Me Not
by Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 12th, 2017


I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.

I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could.

Until I left him.

I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster.

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.

But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all.

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started.

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.

A love story. Our love story.

About the author:

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!

Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.

In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

My review:

Can you believe that this was my first book by this author? I had many firsts in the last couple of months and this was definitely one of the few that stood out most. I was overwhelmed by the emotional depth of this story and the pain the characters were in. Everything felt so real and my chest hurt until the very end.
‘There’s only so much a person can be pushed. Only so much pain they can handle before they break.’
This story totally captured me and I couldn’t think of anything else than how the book was going to end.

The Story:
Robin’s job was to help people although she would’ve needed help herself because even though no one could see it, her heart and mind weren’t well. She’s hurt and lives with regret on having left the boy behind who needed her most. His unknown condition gives her nightmares which she doesn’t know how to deal with.
‘I left him there. He took so much of the pain to try to save me. He’s the only reason I could escape, and in return, I left him behind.’
Now the boy turned to a man that is broken possibly beyond repair. He needs Robin to save him and thereby also herself from the unhappy life they live in. Can she put their broken pieces back together? Is a broken soul able to overcome such darkness? Or will it eventually lead to the seemingly inevitable catastrophe?
‘He’s a man who’s taking what he wants. And that’s me.’
OMG! This psychological thriller will have you turning the pages in no time. It was suspenseful, dark and will let you guessing for a long time.

This book had my head spinning and I loved it! The obvious but at the same time not so obvious dark side of this story captivated me.

I didn’t know at first what to think of the characters because of what they did and how they reacted. I thought that Robin was weird for acting certain ways but later on I understood her better and it became easier to connect with her on an emotional level.
‘I know I need to see someone for this. I can’t keep taking pills just to sleep, just to keep the night terrors from surfacing, but I’m too ashamed to admit it all.’
There was so much hurt and pain. I usually like to feel with the characters but in this case I had to distance myself because it was really intense.

There are always two sides to a story and this one was no exception. There’s always the side of which you think you know and then there’s the really knowing one. You will look differently at the story after you’ve finished this book and saw the whole of it.
‘I don’t know what to do or where I am, but deep down inside I know this boy isn’t going to hurt me. There’s something about him. Something broken and scared and angry even, but it’s pure.’
To be honest, I wasn’t even 30% into the book when I figured it out. I had a feeling from the beginning and then it just clicked. Actually, I was really glad I figured it out so soon because lots of the things I’ve read up to that point made so much more sense. When I finally knew what was going on I saw the characters more clearly and in a different way. I also enjoyed the story far more than before when I was confused the whole time.

Unlike the blurb made me believe, the story was about how broken the characters were because of what happened and their fight to heal. I thought we would dive into the dark story of her being taken by his father but that was all in the past. Although the chapters that brought us back to the past gave us a better view of what had been done to the characters.

-- I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review. --

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
