amazing must read standalone

I loved this book!! Once I started it I couldn't stop! 4.5 Stars!!

"I'm tired of doing things that are comfortable and safe. I want dangerous and unpredictable."

It's a rare find to discover a love triangle that is written so well that you don't know who to root for. I think a lot of this had to do with having Chloe, Drew & Ryder's povs.It really helped me as a reader get inside the story & see the struggle from each characters perspective.

This was a good story but was just lacking in some areas for me. I felt like sometimes things were "skimmed" and then others went on too much. I love the premise of the book and enjoyed the idea of it…just something didn't fully "connect" for me. ...more

5 'must-read' STARS!!!

Any book that is inspired by true events should be read. Now I know some things can be dashed into the recipe to fill in gaps with angst or some other such emotion, but all in all - someone lived those pages. Spoke those words. Felt those feelings. Dwelled upon those decisions. The circumstances caused someone to write it all down so that it can be enjoyed by anyone else. And Make Me Forget was thoroughly enjoyed by me!

This is Brandy's first book and I have been waiting YEARS for this. So, the hype is HUGE. Brandy's highly anticipated story is now here. And she did not disappoint. It was highly enjoyable and very beautiful. With Brandy you didnt get many things I have seen by new authors. She surprised me and blew me away. Amazing first story! I could not be more proud of her.

Let me start by saying I Loved this book!! The love triangle between Chloe, Drew & Ryder is wonderfully written. I adored Drew & thought he was the sweetest man. He was so patient & caring with Chloe. He's the kind of man most woman wish for. However, the chemistry between Chloe & Ryder was instant. Even though Ryder is a bad boy he seems to really want to be better for Chloe. When she confides her secret in Ryder you can see the shift in their relationship. As much as I adored Drew I was

Based on a true story, Brandy Lynn's debut novel, Make Me Forget, is an emotionally touching story that will have readers captivated from the very beginning of the book.

We are introduced to Chloe Evans as she is suffering from abuse that no child should ever have to go through. This opens a world for Chloe that she never wished to be a part of Guarded, hurt, and heartbroken, Chloe begins to pick up the pieces of her life on her 18th birthday.

I liked this book. It was sweet, sexy, sad, funny, and had some good twists along the way. This book is about one girl trying to find her place in life after living through tragedy. I wanted to know this story and see how it unfolded.

This is Chloe's story. Chloe's past is hard but she is setting out for a brighter future. Going to college is going to change her life forever. When she meets not one guy but two on her first day at college, she doesn't know at the time that one (or both) of

When Chloe was younger, she was abused. She has tried to put her life back together the best way she knew how. Now she’s 18 and off to college. Off to see the world, where she meets Drew and Ryder.

Now I’m not going to lie and I think it’s mainly because of the books I do read, I thought this would be a ménage, had to look at the reviews to see that my dreams were dashed.

Both Drew and Ryder want Chloe, but the rub is their best friends. She starts to date Drew, but things get a little complicated

I received a copy of this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.The thing with new adult romances is that it's usually difficult to believe the main character's life experiences. Also, it's either the conflicts were written to be too melodramatic and trying hard to give twisted characters when the truth is that they really just lack the experience to feel certain things.
This book, however, has none of those. The

I truly enjoyed reading Chloe's story. To have been dragged through a rough road in life, she keeps her walls guarded, remaining very strong and independent. That alone gave me great admiration for her, because courage isn't always so easily found through abuse. So what do you do when you literally fall into the arms of your very own Prince Charming? He's sexy and that magnetic draw is present. But everyone warns-stay away from the Bad boy! So Chloe listens, keeping her heart guarded, protected ...more

Chloe Evans has a traumatic past, and goes off to college in hopes of beginning a future with a new start. It's there she meets Ryder Matthews and Drew Nichols, two best friends in a band together. Chloe begins to have feelings for both of them, and so the love triangle begins.

This book hit home for me as I know the feeling what Chloe was going through when she was younger. I found the book to be very accurate with the feelings and emotions of a victim.

Chloe has been a victim for so long, but she finally felt she was doing something for herself at last by going to college and studying for something she's passionate about. What she didn't plan on falling in love or for her feelings for two guys.
Ryder is the bad guy we all love to hate. After bumping into Chloe

We meet Chloe who is starting college and leaving her home town for a fresh start.
Ryder is enjoying college life, and doesn't seem to be interested in dating anyone when girls give it up for free.
Drew is a sweetheart and Ryder's friend, and he is ready for a relationship.

Chloe has a terrible past which keeps her at arms length but Drew manages to break through a little of Chloe's defences :) but Ryder is where her feelings lie.

This was a really good book. Chloe Evans has just turned 18 years old and she's off to college in Virginia at a college in a small town. On her first day there she meets both Ryder Matthews and Drew Nichols.

Chloe has lived a pretty traumatic life. She had to learn at such a young age the atrocities that can happen to people. She once had a loving mother and father. Sadly enough her father was killed when she was really young. Her mother ended up getting remarried to a man that fed her drugs and

Make Me Forget took me on an amazing journey and I could not put it down. This is the first book by author Brandy Lynn and I know it won't be her last. She's got so many more stories to tell.

What drew me into this story and had me picking up my kindle is that it's based on true events. Knowing you're reading a book where the situations may have happened in real life brings a personal touch to the story. I found myself cheering for the heroine before I even knew anything about her.

This book is a standalone.
This book is a love triangle. Also there are very few graphic flashbacks, in italics that can be skipped over.
Chloe has just turned 18 and is moving off to college for the steps in her life.
There is Drew who is 20, he's in a the local band, and also attends the same college as Chloe. It also happens his cousin Alexis is roommates with you guessed it, Chloe.
Then, last but not least we have Ryder. He's also in the band and Drew's roommate.

Ryder Matthews, what a broken guy. He doesn't show emotions all that well and is only known for the one night stands and quickies that he has. Can he be tamed and put on a leash so to speak? Does he feel anything other than numbness or the need to escape from his pain.
