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 . . .

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
That prologue. It grabbed me. Consumed me. I know I would be completely invested in this story the moment I started.
“Do you think it’s possible to be in love with a woman you don’t remember?”
August Kincaid wakes up in a hospital and has no idea how he got there. He has totally lost his memory. Forced to discover himself after two years of being in a coma, the only thing his heart remembers is the woman he found a picture of in his wallet, Everly Adams. When he comes face to face with his past, she is angry. And August wishes he could remember what he did to destroy this woman’s heart. He’s not sure why, but he wants to do everything in his power to fix it.
“Why would the same heart who loved a man so fiercely keep me from him at the same time?”
Everly realizes that August truly doesn’t remember anything. His life before is a mystery. Including their relationship. But that doesn’t dull the pain caused by August’s actions. Someone can’t forget that kind of pain. But can she forgive? Everly faces an inner battle. In the two years in a coma, she has accepted the loss of him and moved on. But as time goes on her heart is remembering the person he was that made her fall. That perhaps, August lost himself a few years ago, and this is his true self. But how can she put herself out there again? She quickly learns that sometimes the greatest loves are worth the risk.
“Do you ever think of me- when I’m not around?”
“Every second, Everly. Every damn second.”
Although August cannot remember his love for Everly, you can easily FEEL it. It’s overwhelming. His mind doesn’t remember, but his heart beats for her. Fiercely. His connection to her is profound. While he doesn’t remember her, his spirit does. And so does his soul. While Everly does things to help August remember, not necessarily them, but himself, you understand how these two came to be. How they fell in love. And how truly resilient the human heart is when it comes to love.
“Loving me destroyed you.”
“Loving you brought me back to life.”
Forgetting August was such a heartfelt and passionate read. August and Everly are two lost people that are left to deal with an unfortunate after math. There are uncertainties and confusion when it comes to their relationship. But one thing you never doubted was their love. Despite the circumstances, their souls were always tethered and this was reflected in the beautiful writing of this book. The ending was such a twist. And I cannot say I saw it coming. But nothing is as it seems. I am so excited for what’s to come for the rest of their story.
