Blog Tour: Forgetting August by JL Berg

Berg_Forgetting August_E-Book


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 . . .

Review by Jennifer Hagen

“You are mine, Everly,” he whispered.  “Mine and mine alone.  I own every part of you, every inch of your body…every breath of your lungs.  You.  Belong. To.  Me.”

I’m all for the alpha male talking dirty, but this is just a little too possessive for my liking.  August was a control freak – he would lock Everly in their bedroom!  August wasn’t always this way. When Everly and August first met it was a sweet romance, but after time August’s wealth changed him and he became obsessed with money along with keeping Everly to himself.  The one night changes it all.  Augusut is no longer able to control Everly because an accident leaves him in a coma.   It is now 2 years later and August is still in the coma and Everly has moved on. 

Everly is engaged to Ryan.  Ryan is a sweet geek.  He isn’t alpha like August but he loves Everly in a much healthier way than August did.  Ryan does not control Everly and makes no attempt to; in fact he is the complete opposite giving her space when she needs to sort things out.  Ryan knows how Everly operates and he never once tries to change her.  He knows that when she is forced with a decision she runs away from it, only to face it head on later once she has come to it on her terms. 

But everything changes when August wakes up.  August doesn’t remember anything from his past.  I actually found myself feeling sorry for him.  He is not the man he once was because he can’t remember who that was.  This August is a new version and I like him.  Turns out I’m not the only one allowing the man who was once a monster to weasel his way into my heart.  Everly is finding herself once again drawn into August.

“I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to forget the past.”
“You shouldn’t,” I urged.  “Never forget the man I became, Everly.  I don’t ever want to become him again.”

Did you miss the part where I said Everly was engaged?  How is this going to turn out?

He was sweet, gentle, and patient, and soon I began to see a new path – one that was so easy to imagine.  Loving Ryan had been simple and safe.  And perhaps that was the root of the problem.  Maybe love wasn’t supposed to be safe.

It did bother me how quickly Everly was engulfed once again by August’s aura.  She knew how toxic he was capable of being, but I suppose just like me she fell for his helplessness.   The poor guy couldn’t even remember how to open a bottle of wine!  Wouldn’t you feel sorry for him, too?  But what happens when the past comes literally knocking on the door?  Find out in book 2!
