**~~~ Remember by Dylan Allen ~~~**



My Review

I didn't realise this was the second in a series but thankfully I had read the first one. Whilst I do think you could read this without having read the first book, you would be missing some back story in terms of the disappearance of Millie's father.

Millie came across as weak in the first book, and I suppose in some ways she had been. I really enjoyed seeing the real Millie re-emerge and grow back into a strong and confident woman. Dean, the hero, was my favourite character. He wasn't too overbearing or arrogant, but balanced being a strong male with being caring and open.

I love a good and well written second chance book, and this definitely fits that criteria. I also really liked that this didn't follow the typical cliched formula of :-

  1. will they, wont they?
  2. get together
  3. break up over something (usually a secret or misunderstanding) and then
  4. get back together.

There is an awful lot of story in this book, some of it involving Millie and Dane and their relationship, some involving their family and some involving their pasts. The writing is of a high quality and the book is well edited. The plot was easy to follow, had a good pace, kept me engaged at all times and was never predictable - there were more than a few surprises along the way, especially when I thought it was building up to one of those cliches but instead the author spun the tale in a different direction.

The two main characters are complex and well thought through, believable and likeable. There are also lots of supporting characters that add extra depth to the story. I can't wait to read Lilly's story!

PS I ended up reading until late at night just to finish the book.
