Review and Giveaway: Make Me Forget by Anna Brooks

One lie can destroy everything…

After enduring years of manipulation and an immeasurable amount of loss, Charlotte Kelly makes one last ditch effort to change her life and try to find happiness again. She knows she’ll see him when she moves back to Wisconsin. She’s planning on it, the connection she still feels to him after all these years is undeniable. But one lie tore them apart years ago, and she’s afraid some mistakes can’t be forgiven.

Travis Parker doesn’t like liars. When he was younger, lies burned him in a bad way. It only took one summer with Charlotte’s innocence to know that she was it for him. When he thought he finally had something to look forward to, one misguided lie shattered everything he believed. Now, Char’s back, but she’s not the same girl he once knew.

4 Unforgettable Stars!
Review by Natasha Gentile



When we first meet Charlotte, she is spending the summer in Wisconsin.  She is at her cousin’s graduation party, when she meets him.  Travis Parker.  Stumbling drunk on the beach, she sits, or rather, falls right next to her.  Practically right into her lap.  Which kind of irritates her.  I mean she was sitting all by herself thinking...and boom, hot guy!!


This time when he talks, he’s looking right at me, and I can see his eyes.  Damn.  They look like the water – perfectly clear and bright blue.  Granted, they’re a little bloodshot, but still beautiful.  I wonder what they would look like if the sun were shinning down instead of the moon.


So what is a girl to do but help this poor drunk man home, especially after he’s poured out his heart to her.  She knows the one secret that he’s keeping.  But…


One lie can destroy everything.

After years apart and more loss than one person can possibly handle Charlotte decides to go back to the one place that she knew what happiness was.  She know she has to face the one person that she has always loved.  She just doesn’t know how to go about it.  It seems fate has stepped in, making the decision for her.


“Charlotte.”  That voice. Oh, God.  I close my eyes and lower my head at the gravely sound that manages to both calm and excite me.  I knew I’d see him eventually since I moved back home, but this is not how I planned things.  I’m not ready to see him yet.


And if you think time makes feelings go away, you couldn’t have been more wrong.


He puts a finger under my chin and tilts my head up.  My eyes collide with his blue ones, and I suck in a breath at the man in front of me.  His muscular frame looks even larger in his gear.  Although I can’t see his black hair under his helmet, I would bet it’s still shaved close to his scalp.  His strong jawline and long, dark lashes make him look like a model.  If he were to smile at me, I would see the dimple on his left cheek.  He’s not smiling though.  He’s looking at me with the same sad eyes I saw the first night I met him.


Travis Parker thought Charlotte was the one for him, till one misunderstanding shattered him leaving him hollow once again.  Now she’s back, and the feelings he thought were gone are not only back, but they are back with vengeance.  Just one thing, Charlotte isn’t the girl he thinks she is.  She is older, she is wiser, and she is broken and empty.   Can Travis get her to open up to him and make her forget the sorrows of the past?
