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 Thoughts…

Charlotte (love the name) tugged at my heart strings.   She grew up with a loving family, then lost them all and had to figure out how to grow up very quickly at a young age.   She took on a lot and managed to handle it all, until she got taken advantage of and lost it all.   When she returns to Wisconsin and finds Travis again I knew that she would be okay.   But oh my gosh, it was an extremely long road for her.    The struggles she goes through are something no woman or man should have to deal with, yet she shows her strength and her determination.   While struggling to let go of her past, Charlotte finds something much stronger, safer, and wonderful.

Travis is a hero.  He is alpha male, firefighter, and a lover.    He knows that if he is to hold on to the love of his life he has to find patience and understanding beyond what a normal person has.   While being with Charlotte is all he wants, he knows that it has to be on her terms, which for an alpha male is almost impossible to handle.    While taking everything thrown at him in stride, I am glad that Anna Brooks let him lose it once in a while and be a real man.  

Make Me Forget is a story with two wonderful characters that are absolutely perfect for each other.  They are truly each other’s real love.  I could not stop reading and thinking about this story.    It is a beautiful story, touching on a few tough subjects.   I absolutely recommend this book and cannot wait to read more from Anna Brooks.   
“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.”

Anna has always had a passion for writing, and is thrilled to have published her first novel. Along with several other projects, she is currently working on the next book in the It’s Kind Of Personal series. Born in Wisconsin, she’s lived in several Midwestern states. Anna enjoys reading, writing, and spending time outdoors with her husband and two boys.
