I needed some time to sort through my feelings about this one, mostly because just a few days ago I read something very similar. I absolutely loved it!

Connor wakes up after an accident in a hospital with amnesia, not remembering the last three years of his life. And Emma is just two days short of him remembering her.

Emma and Connor were co-workers, best friends and lovers. And he doesn't remember any of it. Or the reason they weren't that anymore.
However, even without pointers you can see the ch

This was a really fun, interesting and suspense filled read! Loved it!!

The plot involved a woman focused on helping the love of her life to regain his memory after a accident has left him with amnesia. However, what made it interesting is that she tells him, they need to be discreet about it which is always a given in some situations where office romance comes into play, but the real page turner here is that she has a secret as to just exactly what tore them apart in the first place.

Okay, so I read this book a few days ago and I had to take a few days to sum up my thoughts on it.
3 years ago, Emma and Connor started working together and got to be best friends, 2 years into the friendship, they become lovers
but 5 months later, it all ends the night he proposes when she says she CAN'T until she has told her secret
Then for 2 months both are miserable and he hates her... He gets a new slutty bitch girlfriend.
So... He is hit by a car (if I told you how that came about,

Unforgettable is an Aussie book; and I'm all about Aussie books with a white-hot passion. There's something about their writing that's just bloody brilliant, OR probably in their drinking water that makes them very awesome.

I don't normally rate contemporary-romance a solid 5 star not unless it really captured my heart. With these adult novels sprouting everywhere, you can't help the predictability of the story, whether you've read it or not, and comparing its similarities with the others. In sho

Loved loved this book. It probably is my most favorite adult contemporary romance of 2012-2013. The blurb didn't do this book any justice! I admit the story was simple and a little predictable but the writing and the characters won me over almost instantly. I was completely hooked after the third page.

We have our hero Connor losing the memories of his 3 most recent years and Emma struggling to help him gain them back, with guilt, a lot of guilt. Ms.Ackers' writing was mesmerizing. She portrayed

The Blurb was intersting enough to catch my attention but unfortunately the way the story was handled was absolutely not my "thing" ... And I could not connect to the characters

Following a serious accident, the love of Emma’s life and colleague, Connor awakes in Hospital with temporary amnesia. He can’t remember the last three years and as a result has no recollection of having ever met Emma let alone their intense relationship that ended in disaster.

When she arrives at the Hospital- despite her having his supposed girlfriend Asha in tow- he can’t help but be drawn to Emma and want to know her better. Emma is devastated by Connor’s memory loss and it takes much of her

Connor and Emma have a history, first as friends and then as lovers, but when he awakens from a coma following an accident he has lost 3 years of memory, and he has no clue who the two women waiting by his bedside are. One is his girlfriend, Asha, and the other is Emma. Emma knows that no one knows Connor as well as she does, especially not his high maintenance 'girlfriend'.

Emma is determined to help Connor with his return to normal life, including back to work, as soon as possible, partially be

Okay, let's deal with the elephant in the room upfront. Can amnesia be anything other than a tired old dramatic ploy?


I won't give you spoilers, but I loved how Elise Ackers used Connor's amnesia to set up a drama that showed you other people's reactions to their relatioship as well as his and Emma's. Not that the spotlight was ever off the couple -- the romance was too strong, the pace too intense -- but we saw different aspects of the situation. We saw their beliefs challenged.

When Connor awakes from a coma after an accident that nearly claims his life, the last three years are a blank slate. Suffering from post-retrograde amnesia, everything that has happened in the past three years is as if it never took place at all. Connor has a new job, new friends, a girlfriend he doesn’t remember. And a friend that hangs back looking haunted and who promises to tell him everything, but that he’ll have to trust her.

Emma and Connor were best friends – they were more than best fri
Weighing in at about 170 pages, after you take out the extra pages, this was more of a brunch than an entire meal and a little shorter than I would usually read. I think it is also a little shorter than it could have been to truly shine.

Connor was involved in a terrible accident which has left him comatose in the hospital and when he wakes it is without the last three years of his life. He is physically well and the only thing still affecting him seems to be his amnesia, and the Doctors can’t be

This was a cute, but rather different romance. There were very strong emotions being thrown around during the whole story, pulling on your heartstrings as it pulled on the characters'. The conflict and emotions ran high and well. I liked the smooth line of the plot. The characters were likable and though I felt like the main issue that caused problems was not such a big deal personally, the author did a great job making it convincing and the characters' reaction understandable. I did find there ...more

I thought Unforgettable was okay. I did like how the amnesia was handled, but I was concerned about the lack of professionalism that became rampant, in my opinion, near the end of the story.

4 stars.

Overall great book. No reason as to why i didn't rate the book 5 stars, except that I had no reason as to why I would rate it 5 stars.
