Three sugars, two creamers.
That’s how you took your coffee every morning at Joe’s Grab ’N Go.
But you don’t remember that.
You don’t remember anything.
Anything, that is, except me…
And the tragedy that catapulted us together.

Ollie noticed Reid Valentine since the very first time he laid eyes on him at the coffee shop him and his work partner frequent on a daily to weekly basis. The very first time Reid notices Ollie, is a moment that solidifies what’s to come. When tragedy strikes and the smoke clears, Reid remembers Ollie, but not much else. Through tragedy, an unexpected yet genuine connection forms between these two.
“I just didn’t realize how empty my life was until you filled it.”
Ollie and Reid are magic on the pages. The push and pull of their relationship had me totally engrossed in their story. Unable to ignore the overwhelming desire for each other, they give in. The fall is something to behold. Sexy and endearing, Ollie and Reid’s story is nothing short of extraordinary. What could have been darkness and loneliness, emerged as love and light. The author’s unquestionable talent is manifested in not only the unique storyline but also how she brilliantly encompasses the deepest vulnerabilities of these two men while telling one of the most epic love stories I’ve read in a really long time. Deep and exquisitely moving, Forget Me Not is a compelling journey of falling in love, learning it’s limitations, while understanding love itself is an endless promise.
“Ollie? Is it always like this?”
“No…No, it’s never like this.”
But what happens when circumstances change? When love is forced to go against the unthinkable? Without giving too much away…your heart will race throughout this entire book. They were never supposed to happen…but they did. It’s a lesson of love and life. That loving someone is also giving that someone a power that no one else holds. That the past can come back and shatter hearts to pieces. But isn’t love strong enough to withstand that? This is the very reason why I am beyond excited to dive into book two. To say I loved this book would be an understatement. Exhilarating yet heartfelt, THIS book is the recipe for exceptional M/M romance.
My worst nightmare and your greatest fear became a reality:
You don’t remember me.
You don’t remember the accident, or the weeks afterward.
You don’t remember my bed as your safe place, or when, against all odds, you fell for me.
You remember me only as the casual acquaintance you saw as you grabbed your daily coffee.
Three sugars, two creamers.
Perhaps an acquaintance is all I’ll ever be to you now.
Maybe I can shoulder the heartbreak and the loss of you, if it means you’ll be happy.
You remember me when.
Remember Me When is the second and final book in The Unforgettable Duet and should only be read following Forget Me Not.

*Please be sure to read Book One of this duet – Forget Me Not, before reading this one*
Ollie’s greatest fear is realized. Heartbroken and lost, he is not sure what to do. Maybe that time together was supposed to be temporary. Maybe it was supposed to be more. But this deep longing for Reid still lives within him despite the emptiness he sees when he looks into his eyes. Somewhere buried underneath all of that tragedy, Reid has to know and love him right? But Reid doesn’t remember. While the mind lacks memory, the heart still feels. Drawn to him in ways he cannot describe, Reid is fascinated by these feelings whenever Ollie is near. But can you fall in love with the same person twice? You will need to read this remarkable story to find out.
In book two of this duet, it’s told in dual POV. I think this was brilliant on the author to do this as it allowed the author to bring her readers deeper into the circumstances and heartbreak that surrounded Ollie and Reid. And how the impossible could become the possible. Can they find their way back to each other? This story is told with a vulnerability that many authors cannot capture much less in two distinct voices.
“I don’t understand how you can look at me like that”
“With your entire heart in your eyes.”
The Unforgettable Duet is an impassioned love story that is a testament to love and all of it’s endless possibilities. The characters. Ardent. Inspiring. The beauty of this book lies entirely at the feet of Ollie and Reid. They loved beyond limits and circumstance. The story line. Unique. Sensual. Deeply touching. The writing. I could talk about forever. Her words are powerful in it’s prose, yet seductive in it’s delivery. Whether it was heartbreak or they loved in silence or out loud, it was unmistakable. This is what her writing does. It’s gripping. Awakening. Brooke Blaine? You. Moved. Me. If I was asked to recommend a book that challenged love and all it entails. A book that pushes boundaries. That manifests in the sheer magnitude of love existing through darkness and tragedy. This? This is that book. So. Well. Done. My heart is full.
