Title: Forget Me Not
Author: Willow Winters
I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.
I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could.
I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster.
I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.
Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.
Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.
But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all.
Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started.
It’s dark and twisted.
But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.
A love story. Our love story.
I’ll be honest, dark romance is a sub genre I dabble in. I sprinkle it throughout my normal NA, romantic comedy and YA reads. So it should come as no surprise that I’ve never read anything by Willow Winters. This was my first foray into her writing and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it! I’ll definitely look to her backlist the next time I’m looking for something a bit more on the dark side.
Forget Me Not is not only dark, but keeps you guessing throughout the entire book. It’s full of suspense, romance and an unconvential, but beautiful love story. I really don’t want to say anything about the plot or the characters because less is best with this one. I’m so glad I went into this completely blind. It made for an even more engaging read!
Willow Winters’ writing in Forget Me Not flows well and is well paced. At no point did I feel like the story was dragging and I never had that urge to skim ahead to just get through the “boring” parts. Her characters were intriguing and mysterious and had me wanting more.
This is is an unforgettable story that I would recommend to any lover of dark romance!
