Forgetting August by J.L. Berg Blog Tour with #5star #Review

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 . . .

As a reader, the first thing I would want to know about this book is that it is NOT a stand alone. The second book in the series isn't scheduled to be available until April 2016. Given the shock of the cliffhanger ending, waiting might be too hard for some. I, however, love a good cliffhanger. Time just builds the excitement for me so it was perfect.

I found myself unsettled while reading this amazing story. August has been in a coma for 2 years and is just awoken with no memory of his past. Even though Everly had moved on with Ryan, once August woke up, I just wanted her to find her way back to him. But once I found out some of their history, I wasn't so sure. My loyalties between the men flip back and forth depending on how things were going. Given the ending, I know what I want to happen right now and I will be getting this next book as soon as I can. 

The story drew me in, but it was the characters that kept me reading. Ryan is such a sweet, caring man. he is totally devoted to Everly and will do anything for her. Everly had a rough childhood and still suffers from some of the emotional effects. August is waking up not understanding why Everly hates him so much, but he wants to. Not because he wants to go back, but because he doesn't. You could feel the connection between August and Everly but has too much happened in the past for them to be happy together. And what about sweet Ryan.... Oh the wonderful turmoil.

Given the ending, I know what I want to happen right now and I will be getting this next book as soon as I can.
