This was... pretty bad. I was fairly intrigued by the idea so I figured what the hell. But yeah... it was really not done well. Firstly, I completely and totally do not believe in love at first sight. You can't truly love someone if you don't actually know them. That being said, instant attraction to a person is something different and I think the author and the heroine are both confused about this. Sex does not equal love, guys. Instantly feeling an attraction for a person and wanting them, als ...more

Wow is all I can really say...I guess the complexity of the book and the hmmmm factor made me fall in love. The author kept me wanting to turn the page and find out what would happen next. Yes, there were parts that were predictable but the rest..was just interesting. I will be reading more of the authors books. I love the characters in the book and I also wish that I could read more about the Cedar's .. is there a long lost family member or someone who we can learn about. Can we see Jenna's sto ...more

Recommends it for: hopeless romantics, people with a few hours to spend
This was an okay concept for a contemporary romance story but the delivery was only meh. Neither the hero nor the heroine really ever connected with me, and while this was a pleasant read (and a rather quick one), I can only give this three stars.

The book was either self-published or the editor/proofreader should be fired. There were punctuation mistakes, spelling mistakes, grammatical mistakes, and each one jarred me out of the story and made my inner beta growl.

Ok, so I started out giving this 3 stars only because since it was a free download I didn't feel cheated out of $4+ . If I had paid for this I probably would have asked for my money back. But as I started writing my review I realize that giving it 3 stars is giving it more credit than it deserves.

This could have been a good book. It was a good concept. But honestly it was 359 pages that could have been condensed in a couple of chapters. The characters were under developed and honestly not likea

Forgotten Father has a great story line. Mitchell and Delainie spot each other across a crowded room and sparks fly. The next day, Mitchell discovers Delainie is his grandfathers mistress and decides she is after the family money. Mitchell bands her from the family resort and demands she stay away him and his family. More than upset, Delainie jumps in her car and ends up wrecking and losing her memory of 6 weeks (conviently surronding her time with Mitchell). 18 months later, Mitchell's grandfat ...more

I found most of this story infuriating. From the moment Delanie started spouting all this crap about falling in love at first sight I instantly regretted paying for this book.
I don't believe in love at first sight. Lust at first sight is completely different.
Also, Mitchell was a dickhead. And he was inconsistent.
The story may have been worth reading if it was written better and the characters had more depth to them rather than the shallow shells they seemed to be.
Also I feel the need to point o

This book was all over the place. I enjoyed the concept but was annoyed by both the main characters and the delivery. The "love" between the main characters was juvenile and unbelievable. The cover is sexy though, so I'll give it an extra star.

I felt zero connection to the story. The idea seems unique, but it wasn't built upon, like, at all. Every thing happened too fast. It was a short read. Some stories work at this length. This one, did not.

This was a free eBook download. The story was an okay read for me. The story line is a good one but I think if could have been more developed, especially Mitchell Riese's character. We would have felt more attachment between Delanie and Mitchell. I know it was s short story but the ending was rushed.

I was close to giving this four stars. I liked the premise. Two people lock eyes across the room, instant attraction. They have a wonderful passion filled night in which of course the woman puts far more stock in than the man, and then the next morning when he learns her name he verbally accuses her of being a gold digger and throws her out causing her to get in a car and have an accident, where she gets amnesia forgetting everything from that morning to six weeks prior. Then waking up to find s ...more

"Be with me always," he said softly into her ear. "Help me celebrate every day. You're like the sunlight. Everything in my world is better when you're there." ~Mitchell

Delanie. She's a caring woman who wants nothing more than to find her true soulmate. She believes once she finds him, all will be well. Her life will be complete and all those things that seemed bothersome will no longer matter because he will be by her side. She believes she found that man, was 'in love' with him by the time he s

I really miss epilogues...this story could have used one.

Delanie KNOWS that Mitchell is her other half...when she first meets him. They have a glorious night...and then he finds out who she is.

He thinks she's his GRANDFATHERS lover!

And he lambastes her...sending her off with a migraine headache...and in no condition to drive...oh, and VERY newly pregnant...

A small accident later...followed by a small case of amnesia...and 18 months later they come face to face again...but she doesn't KNOW him.

I enjoyed reading this book, the way you could see the main chararcters falling in love, the ending was very sweet. I only gave it two starts though because I won't be reading it again and I felt that Lanie was too forgiving after he called her all those horrible things - plus the way she regained her memory didn't seem at all plausible to me. Its a good book to fill a few hours - maybe on a train/flight.

only reason some of the things I've been reading, like this, are on my kindle is because they were on the free list a year ago. if you took every cliché about romance and put it all in one story you have this one. steamy instant love? bitter dividing conflict? amnesia? prenups? wills? grand cheesy gestures? public proposals? need to read it then.

It's nice in a the guy realizes he's a jerk and that he's in love with the girl and decides love is more important than money. But seriously she forgets an entire month of her life and therefore can't remember who the father of her child is. Worse is the whole I fell in love before I even met you. The book description on iBooks is totally misleading as to what you should expect from this book.

This is the first book I read by Carol Rose. I thought the main character Mitchell was too mean. I thought it wasn't enough communication between the 2 main characters. I also thought the story was more about what the main characters thoughts. Alot of their thoughts was repeated & that was annoying. I purchased this book when it was free but I don't think its worth reading free or 99 cents.

I loved the story line. The whole concept of the book was good. However i think that the characters needed to be developed more. More information about their backgrounds would have helped the overall story.

I have to say that I actually liked this book. It was interesting to see how the characters represented themselves before and after Delanie's accident, those difference made the book interesting.

Cute read

I couldn't imagine losing my memory and not being able to remember what I really needed to. Especially if I had kids or a husband. I would like to think that no matter what I would still not forget my children. I just wouldn't like to put my family through something like that.

2 1/2 stars. Not even sure why I finished it except that I have trouble not finishing a book once I've started it. It's not very well written and the story is dated. Seems like somithing that would have been written in the 80s.

The writing was fairly good, although it needed some editing. The story was easy to follow, and even kind of fun, but I HATED the heroine. From the first page, all I wanted to do was slap her. That impulse diminished a bit as I read, but it never completely went away.

Didn't know what I was getting myself into. I almost put it down after the first chapter, but I hate not finishing books and it wasn't long. Now I wish I had. What a waste of space. Should have read the reviews...
It was an ok read. One of those fall in love at first sight type stories. But he was a total ass and didn't redeem himself at all until the last page, so just an ok read for me.
