Oh man. I found myself laughing a lot. Trouble is, it's definitely not supposed to be funny. I finally had to quit when the hero got into a sissy-fight with a sleazeball and everyone was simply appalled! because the sleaze is such a great guy that they all just love. The thing is, I couldn't take any of these jokers seriously. It's like if you had a family that plays Uno every night with a deck passed on from Great Grandma—so overplayed that it's worn thin and hard to take seriously. I mean, we ...more

I wanted to like this book. It had a great plot and the characters were people I could really get behind. I wanted them to get their HEA. But there were just too many plot holes for it to be believable to me.

Please keep in mind that this is my review and it probably isn't what you would think If you read this one.

I'm so damn happy this was a freebie... There are only a few authors that can make me enjoy an Insta story! And this one isn't one of them..

It was just all too soon like unbelievable too soon. Like ALL the things. I had a lot of moments that I just wanted to stop reading and wanted to pull my hair out and scream at the world.. Does that seem like overreacting? Maybe but I just felt so damn

The angsty-ish romance I was in the mood for, but with a few sticking points.

- Slut shaming: A character called Britney exists solely to be slut shamed and, apart from that slut shaming is shitty anyway, Travis had sex with her so what does that make him? The heroine also labels another woman who she - wrongly - believes Travis is having an affair with a slut. Again, if we're going to be calling someone a slut in this scenario, it should be him. Oh and Travis literally says that women he's had s

Make Me Forget by Anna Brooks is a tale of a love that stands the test of time and the lessons that life throws at you in the face of one tragedy after another. This book was make you shed a tear at times but will also make you smile and cheer for Charlotte or Char as her friends and family call her; for the reader can see her grow throughout the book, becoming stronger than she was when it started all the while reclaiming a life that was taken from her through manipulation. This was a 3.5 star ...more

Travis: It only took one summer with her to know she was it for me. But just when I thought I finally had something real, she shattered everything I believed and left without looking back.

Charlotte: I knew I’d see him when I went home. I was planning on it. But years ago, I told a lie, and I’m afraid some mistakes can’t be forgiven. Now I’m back, but I’m not the same girl he used to know.

3.5 Uber angsty stars!

Anna Brooks is one of my go-to authors for passionate romances brimming with intense angst, raw emotion and swoony alpha heroes who make you melt! MAKE ME FORGET(Some Kind of Personal bk 1), a beautifully written story about kindred spirits who discover love against all odds, struck a deep emotional chord in me and had an abundance of FEELS!.

In a nutshell, this is the story about Charlotte and Travis, who met when she was 17 when they were b

Review by Natasha Gentile

When we first meet Charlotte, she is spending the summer in Wisconsin. She is at her cousin’s graduation party, when she meets him. Travis Parker. Stumbling drunk on the beach, he sits, or rather, falls right next to her. Practically right into her lap. Which kind of irritates her. I mean she was sitting all by herself thinking...and boom, hot guy!!

This time when he talks, he’s looking right at me, and I can see his eyes. Damn. They look like the wa

This is not your typical love story, it is so much more. Anna Brooks you hooked me in the first chapter and I couldn’t put it down.
Charlotte when she went to her cousins graduation party she had no idea that she was going to meet a guy that had the potential to change her life forever. She was only going to be in town for a couple of weeks before going back to home and to school, so one little lie couldn’t hurt anything, or could it?
Travis has had a difficult time since graduating high school, a

Loved this. So so loved this. Love Travis. My gosh that man is a swizzle stick of perfection. He's kind, protective, sweet, adorable, gentle and honest. He falls for charlotte without meaning to and even after finding out she lied to him forgives him, does the right thing but also waits for her. He doesn't move so that when charlotte is ready she can still find him. Once these two walk away from another, Charlotte loses her way though. She loses her dad and than her mom falls apart and than she ...more

I guess I am in minority here, but there was too much drama in this book for me. Between Travis' backstory and what happens to Char's after her mom dies, I felt like the author was pulling too hard on heart strings. I did not finish the book. ...more

Charlotte meets her prince when she is 17, but a little lie tears them apart. Much happens before she sees her prince again...is it time for her HEA or has too much time passed? I really enjoyed this story, but was disappointed in the "close relationship" Charlotte had with her relatives. I guess it only works if you're in the same town. Other than that I did enjoy the story. Travis had a few of his own issues to work on and I was happy to see him offering forgiveness to one of them. ...more

I really enjoyed this book, the characters. there were times where she annoyed me like no other like she needs to just tell him about what happened with Todd. I don't think any normal human being would blame her for that...and if they did then they didn't deserve her anyway. I love Travis. he's such a sweet guy. the story wrapped up perfectly. ...more

Charlotte annoyed me sometimes, otherwise this would’ve been a solid 4 star contemporary romance. Travis was yum! :D

I’ll definitely read on. I’ve GOT to find out Mary’s story!! We’ll see if she manages to hook me in for book three. *snorts*

Anna Brooks is a new Author to me. I have to say that this lady is an Absolute  Hidden Gem. Her writing is amazing. She has you gripped from start to finish.

A story about Love, True love that touches you deep into your soul. These two are Kids when they meet but they build a bond so unbreakable. It's almost unimaginable but yet for a person like me that fell inlove at 17 I know just how possible it is to find the other Half of your Soul at 17....

This story was so touching and just WOW I loved it. I didn't really expect the range of emotions I felt during this story but they were there in full force ripping me apart and putting me back together.

The opening leaves you hanging , right from the start , holy heck what is she going through. But this story then goes back to the past before we get to those moments so you have to hang on for the answers , NICE PLAY !! The time frames are marked so be sure to pay attention to them !! Charlotte is

Make Me Forget is the first book in the It's Kind Of Personal Series. This story is about how lies can shattered a beautiful relationship and how distance can make things worse. This story tore at my heart strings and slowly mended them back together along the journey that Charlotte and Travis endure. I would give this story a 3.5-4 stars. I would recommend this book to others and look forward to more from this author.

Charlotte (love the name) tugged at my heart strings. She grew up with a loving family, then lost them all and had to figure out how to grow up very quickly at a young age. She took on a lot and managed to handle it all, until she got taken advantage of and lost it all. When she returns to Wisconsin and finds Travis again I knew that she would be okay. But oh my gosh, it was an extremely long road for her. The struggles she goes through are something no woman or man should have to deal with, yet ...more

This author is very new to me, and when asked to read and review this book, I really didn't know what to expect. I'm super happy I got to read this one. The writing is great. The storyline is even better. I love, love, love the characters of Char and Travis. Travis is one hot, hot, hot, but sweet, sweet, sweet hero. Really, I don't think Ms. Brooks could have made him anymore lovable than she did. And Char, oh sweet and innocent Char, was also written to perfection. My one and only complaint is ...more

LOVED this book. I am so glad there was no cliffhanger at the end. I don't think my heart could have taken it :-) This story is gut and heart wrenching to core. I wanted to beat up people, I cried, and I hurt for the characters.

This book is about second chances in life and love after cirucmstances continue to beat and batter Charlotte.

I really enjoyed how Travis was written and how he is still hopeful for them in the future. You don't read to many alpha-ish types actually on board from the g

I thought this book was sweet. Both Travis and Charlotte fell in love when they were young. After a lie was told (not a big one in my opinion) they were separated. Years passed and neither had forgotten the other.

Charlotte had gotten into a bad sort of affair and ran like the wind. Where she runs into her first and only real true love Travis.

The couple has to overcome both mental and physical obstacles to find their happiness.

I enjoyed their story. I really liked the character's progression thro

Charlotte's has had to grow up really fast. Her emotional struggles and grief tugged at my heart strings and I found myself aching for her. Travis is not only a total hunk, but also the perfect person to help Charlotte learn to trust again, if she lets him in. Make me forget is a sweet story about how two people must learn to let go of their past in order to have a chance for a future. Anna Brook has painted two beautiful characters that I found myself rooting for. I held my breath until the ver ...more

I doubt there is a single person in this world who doesn't want a love like Travis has for Charlotte. He's attentive, sweet, protective, and he waited for her even when he shouldn't of. The twists and turns in this book with those few 'aha' moments make them even better because I Love books that do exactly what you don't think they'll do. Heartfelt read. Funny, sweet, and hot.
