Forgetting August by J.L. Berg
Expected publication: December 1st 2015
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.
This book has me at a loss of words. I have so many questions and I have no idea how I feel about this book or the characters. This book just completely messed with my mind. I was up most of last night not just finishing this book but trying to figure out how I felt about it. I really liked the plot. It was really interesting and different. August and Everly had such a weird relationship but I was so curious to see what would happen next.
There was a lot of unanswered questions which really bugged me and I wasn’t really into the cliffhanger. It just left me feeling incomplete, like I didn’t really finish the book.
If you’re a fan of a good mystery and you want a book that may or may not destroy your life (maybe in a good way, maybe not), I definitely recommend Forgetting August by J.L. Berg. It’s been a whole day since I finished this book and I still can’t get it out of my head.
