She can forgive, but can she forget?

Some days, Everly still thinks she sees him. In the food court at the mall, or in a car speeding past as the light changes. It only lasts a second, but when it happens, she slips back to a time when she was ruled-and nearly ruined-by August Kincaid. And it doesn't matter that she's moved on, that she's about to marry another man. In thos

J.L. Berg delivers a well written, mysterious, love triangle that had my full attention all the way through. Everly Adams is happily engaged to a wonderful sweet guy named Ryan when she gets a phone call that her abusive ex-boyfriend August Kincaid has awoken from his two year coma!

”No family or friends- I was either a loner or an asshole. I didn’t know which was worse.”

Everly’s POV is bit contradicting throughout the book. She does see a therapist who tries to help her sort through

"Do you think it’s possible to be in love with a woman you don’t remember?"

NOTE: this review covers both books in this duet. —Wow! I just finished a mini reading marathon where I read both books in the “Lost & Found” duet back-to-back!!! It was so ADDICTIVE!! I couldn't put it down! If you read the blurb, you’ll notice that it’s quite a unique story — the hero wakes up from a coma with amnesia and doesn’t remember the heroine! But when he starts

Because life really didn't move on from a person such as August Kincaid.
No, you simply learned to adapt and above all, you survived.


When you read about a book a day, they all sort of begin to blend into each other. So when I stumble upon a book that's as unique as Forgetting August, it's a treat. This was unlike anything I've read in the past and I was immediately drawn into the story. It was just that good; the writing, the mystery, the angst, the romance, all of it wrapped together

Forgetting August
by JL Berg depicts a second chance love story in the event of tragedy and amnesia. August Kincaid wakes from a two-year coma to find nothing...no visitors, no family, no friends. Just the belongings that were on his body leaving him to put the pieces back together of his previous life. His power of attorney happens to be his live-in girlfriend but even she appeared to run for the hills in his 2-year slumber- leaving his attorney and an accou

So I can't really say much about this book without giving things away but the overall story is about August Kincaid who wakes up from a coma after two years. When he wakes up though he has no memory of his past and he sets out to find the man he used to be. His search leads him to Everly, but when he reaches out to her he finds out that there relationship did not end well and that she hates him. Not just hates him, but despises him and is afraid of him

Heartbreaking yet hopeful, dark and light, in spite of the angst it’s also full of love and sexiness. It’s a host of emotions exquisitely written in a memorably unorthodox romance.

Even though it’s been two years since the night August Kincaid slipped into a coma, Everly is still haunted by his ghost. Although she’s happily engaged to be married to another man, August is her constant shadow even in the dark recesses of the night causing her to flashback to when her life was solely controlled

I am not a huge fan of the 'Love-Triangle' trope, it’s just a theme I do not enjoy, I think I can count on one hand the number of books I have read in this genre, I usually have a nasty reaction to all of the lying and deceit akin to the below.



But I saw a few reviews about Forgetting August being a little different from the norm in relation to the whole 'Love-Triangle' scenario, and add to the fact one of my favorite tropes in the form of one of the leads hav

Been reading this for THREE DAYS and I am only 39% in and starting tho skim.

I cannot stand Everly she just ANNOYS me SO MUCH and I haven't got a clue how I feel about August.

I might try this again someday, give it a second chance.

I hate to DNF but there are too many books I want to read.

I have no idea where to begin with this incredibly emotional love story. The prologue captured my attention and refused to let it go, and what a ride it was. Emotionally, I felt drained and just wanted to scream my heart out because I could not believe this was it...I'm still trying to recuperate from this!!!

August Kincaid was fun, loving, sweet and carefree, yet over the years he changed to become manipulative and controlling… He was no longer the man Everly had fallen in love with, and she did

The synopsis for Forgetting August was enough to make me pick this one up and for the most part it delivered what I wanted: some romance, some intrigue. I was already curious and full of questions from the start. What happened between August and Everly to make her go from loving him to hating him? What made August change? And why was he in a coma? Some answers I got, some I'm still waiting for.

Everly is engaged and planning her wedding (although not too enthusiastically, it seems) to ki

It’s amazing how two chapters can ruin a book for me. I had some issues with the story, but Forgetting August was on its way to being a 4-star read. It's an interesting second-chance romance that not only tells of a second chance at love, but a second chance at life as well.

August awakens from a two-year coma with no recollection of his past. He has no idea who he is, what caused him to be hospitalized, or where he lives. The only person who seems to know him is his emergency contact, Everly, a

There wasn't supposed to be the mother of all cliff hangers. My jaw wasn't supposed to drop. The rug was not supposed to be pulled from under me. My heart rate was not supposed to sky rocket

This is one of those books that I chose to read completely based on the amnesia storyline. I've read a couple of books with a similar element and what I really liked in those books wasseeing the couple fall in twice. In Forgetting August, I felt no chemistry or connection between the hero and heroine, which made it impossible for me to root for them.

This book is part mystery and part love story. What I liked was the book's concept. What would you do if the man you fell in love with becomesobses

I’m so glad I read this. This is a fabulous addition to my contemporary collection and it is a book which really grips you emotionally. Be it happy or sad, it really gets those emotions flowing. And that is what makes this book so likeable in the first place.

I didn’t really know what to expect when I started reading but the blurb really caught my attention. I’m a sucker for long lost loves and heartbreak and I just needed to read it as soon as I saw it. I don’t regret my decision one bit and I w

Fist things first: I REALLY hate love triangles ...

I think it's an immature way of telling a story about LOVE and it definitely cheapen the characters' feelings for each other ...

When you find yourself rooting for the hero / villain and wishing the moronic heroine meets her maker; it's probable the author has trouble with the process of characterization !

This book opens with the heroine getting laid with a guy who is now her "fiancé" because she abandoned the "hero" who is inconveniently in a c

I feel breathless and speechless. I don't even know where to start. I'm so overwhelmed with the emotions slamming me left and right with how Everly and August's story went. It's filled me with dread and heartache, fuzzies in the stomach and flutters of the heart, extreme pain and just pure agony. I can't even begin to comprehend and imagine how it feels to be in the shoes of either August or Everly. Although this feels as realistic as they come.

An amazing heart bumping read with twists and turns that leave you speachless.

My body was his.It was made for him.I would always belong to August.

Everly was a woman trying to move on from her past from a monster of a man who had controlled her, possessed her, enslaved her in the comfort of her own home and now she was free, loving someone else with a wedding on the horizon. Could Everly move on from her past from August?

Maybe sometimes love isn't pure. Maybe sometimes it's toxic so toxic it cons

Oh, how I wanted to love this book. I thought that the blurb sounded like an amazing idea for a book and I couldn't wait to dive into the story. Quite a few friends on Goodreads really enjoyed this one and I was excited to enjoy the ride. But that ride never really came for me.

I think that my first problem with the book was the characters. Or character, actually. My issue was with Everly. I understood the confusion and anger that consumed her life. I didn't really get how she could be so very a

Disturbing. Addictive. Mysterious and loaded with intrigue. Emotionally-charged. These are just some of my thoughts after reading this unforgettable book. Forgetting August sucked me in and refused to let go - not until I had read it from cover to cover in one go.

I had to take a few days after reading this to properly gather my thoughts into some type of sensical order. Seriously, I was blown away after reading it. This was a dark, sometimes hopeful story of addictive love which explored that f

I loved the premise of the book. The storyline was intriguing and captivating, but it had one element that I really don't like in my books....Love Triangle. To me this was the perfect story to explain why love triangles frustrate me so much. Most of that has to do with

I cannot wait until March for the book, I just can't!

Everly has done all she can in the last two years to forget August, to forget the terror, the confinement, and even the love. With her wedding planning to Ryan going full swing, the last thing Everly expected when she answered the phone was to find out he was awake. Two years, August is awake after two years in a coma, but he remembers nothing, his previous past is just the few items he had with him at the hospital. There's a photo, of a beaut

I knew I would hate myself for not heeding the warning about the whopper cliffhanger that was awaiting me at the end of this book. I knew I should have waited closer to release date of the second book, Finding Everly, before starting this continuing saga. Waiting until the next installment is going to be excruciatingly painful and it’s my own fault. Because I was warned and I just couldn’t wait. Too much temptation and curiosity after reading reviews and the blurb. Plus I'm a fan of this author' ...more

Secrets.

Secrets have a way of digging their way into your soul, into your mind until all you can think about is that one simple thing you omitted from a conversation or the tiny white lie you told to keep the peace.

Secrets.

Everyone has them.

Mothers, husbands, priests, even. We all walked around carrying them on our shoulders like lead weights, smiling and going about our lives as if nothing was amiss.

Yet on the inside—we were screaming.

I have been on such a romance kick lately (I mean, when am I not?), especially damaged romances. When I read the synopsis for this one, I couldn't wait to see if this one was going to give me the emotional roller coaster ride I was looking for.
