Never Forget You: The new emotional and unforgettable love story of 2023, perfect for fans of Colleen Hoover and Lucy Score
About this deal
I experienced goosebumps so frequently when I was reading this book and I don’t think it was because of the weather.
The mystery surrounding Alice, the runaway with amnesia, and the struggles she encounters are interesting and emotional, she really helps Ben with his own journey and the issues he has encountered. I loved that it’s split timelines too and it gives it more perspective and then things come together towards the end.
It was so hard to choose the star rating for this book because of how well written it is to the point it’s extremely frustrating to have to sit through and watch the main character go through all the emotional abuse. Five years later, Ben still wonders how he got things so wrong – he let the love of his life slip between his fingers.
It’s still there now, smoking slightly and occasionally emitting a creaking sigh, like a train that has just pulled into the depot. The dual timelines and ‘multiple’ POVs work so well, taking away some of the heaviness that can come with this type of story – all in all it was extremely well written with dynamic and interesting characters, a well thought out plot and structure, it gave me all the feels and I highly recommend it! But then our heroine Lili and Ben the photographer went their separate ways after a little over 24 hours together.This review was written voluntarily and my rating was in no way influenced by the fact that I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel from HQ via NetGalley. Watching Lili and Ben meet at the beginning of the story made it feel like this was going to be a cutesy, happy romance story that takes place over several years, with the happy couple being separated, for whatever reason, and then they eventually reunite. She has written heart-warming love stories and feel-good women's fiction as Fiona Harper for more than a decade. Jumping between timelines is one of my favourite writing styles so I loved that this book was covering multiple timelines at the same time, before they came together at the end. The only clue to her past is the silver bee necklace she wears - the very same one Ben bought for Lili that magical summer's day.
