[Pat's Review]: "Forget Me Not"

Forget Me Not by Erika Marks
Publisher: Tule Publishing (May 19, 2015)
Series: Loveless and Dunn, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Barbara's Plea -- PatWhen aspiring-writer Mallory Reynolds packed up for New York City, she ditched more than her quiet hometown of Magnolia Bay—she left her high-school sweetheart, Josh Loveless, behind. But when the big city didn’t deliver big contracts on her novels, she turned to writing erotica under the pen name Farrah Ivory to spare her family any embarrassment. Soon, her scandalously-sexy series, The Lost Diaries of Scarlet, is a break-out hit. Just as Mallory begins to enjoy her sweet success, her publisher leaks her true identity and a media firestorm ensues. Exposed, she decides there’s nowhere to hide—except for home.

For Josh Loveless, getting over Mallory Reynolds hasn’t been easy, but he’s done his best to move on. For starters, he’s turned his love of the outdoors and rock-climbing into his own business. And just as things are starting to settle for him, he learns Mallory’s coming home to ride out her scandal, and suddenly his world is turned upside down again…

Can Mallory convince her friends and family that she’s still the same good-hearted girl they knew? And more importantly, can Josh trust the woman she’s become, and give her a second chance to rewrite their love story with a happy ending?

Pat's Review:

Mallory Reynolds and Josh Loveless were in high school when they fell in love, positive that nothing could tear them apart. Until one day, Mallory had exciting news for Josh;  she had been excepted into an exclusive writing program at NYU.  She wanted him  to go with her, to start their life together in New York City. Josh quickly dashed her hopes. Magnolia Bay, South Carolina was their home, and where he wanted to start a business. She would be going to New York alone. He wouldn't even agree to try. She left with a broken heart, Josh stayed with a broken heart.

Five years later and Mallory is back in Magnolia Bay to try and dodge the press. It had somehow slipped that she was the successful author of a series of erotic books called the Lost Diaries of Scarlett. Her pen name was Farrah Ivory, and when the news hit she was deluged with questions, accolades and disgust. She needed to go home. Of course, who does she immediately almost run into, with her car, Josh. He is working to re-open his store called Extreme Sports. He had totally renovated, and had high hopes for a successful year. He had heard all the rumors about Mallory's books, even the fact that the male character, dashing John, was modeled after him.

This is a very romantic love story. It could be called a second chance novel, but Mallory and Josh never stopped loving each other......they just needed to be in the same place together to remember. The characters are delightful and I loved Delta, Mallory's eclectic Aunt. It is a novella and I would so love to know more about Josh and Mallory. This is a series I will definitely be reading.
