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.

My Review: 

Make Me Forget

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Charlotte meets Travis when she is visiting family in Wisconsin one summer. They both realize that they connection they share is serious, but an omission of truth followed by Charlotte going back to Texas separates them. Four years later, Charlotte returns to Wisconsin but Travis can see that she isn't the same person she was before. It is clear that something has happened to her, but he hopes that they will finally have a chance to be together since his feelings for her have not diminished over the years and neither have hers.

This book hooked me in and kept me engaged throughout. The connection between Travis and Charlotte is pretty wonderful. Seeing what Charlotte goes through in the years between leaving and returning to Wisconsin was hard. It is clear that once she returns to Wisconsin she is doing what she can to move forward in a healthy way, so it is really hard to watch her continue to struggle at times. Travis is a pretty spectacular man. Definitely sexy, and protective without being controlling. A very easy character to like! Charlotte is easy to connect with as well, and though she struggles a lot I was cheering her on the whole time. I would definitely read more books by this author and will be eagerly waiting to see if we might get more books where we can learn more about some of the other characters...

“There are so many things I want to say to you. I can’t thank you enough for staying.”
“You don’t need to thank me. I take care of the people I love. It’s ingrained in me to be a protector, and I happen to love you very much, so my services are all yours.” He smiles again. “Everything I have is yours, my heart, my home. I know I’m not a millionaire or anything, but I promise you, absolutely nobody will ever love you as much as I do. There is no object, no monetary amount, that signifies my love for you. There are no limits on the hell I’d walk through to make sure you were happy.”
