Wow, what an unexpected surprise! I totally didn't expect to fall in love with this book. I was totally captivated by this love story. This book had my mind frantically anticipating when and how everything would inevitably go spectacularly wrong, being I was so captivated by the joy of everything being so right! I enjoyed the highs and felt all the lows of this book. I thought I could see what secret they story was going to expose, but I was so wrong. I love it when an author can surprise me wit

3.5 - 4 Forgotten Stars

Very good debut novel from Ms. Wine.

This is book one of this series, it ends on a cliffy but nothing heartbreaking so it was okay although I would have like to know it was part of a series.

The main and secondary characters were amazing and Def the secondary characters are worthy of their own book.

Even though I like the book, I felt a disconnection from the characters at some points on the book. They were areas that in my opinion needed a little more editing to make it

Forgotten Truth is a fantastic debut. It has all the elements of an amazing romance novel, from its plot, it's characters, and all the good feels. It ends in a cliffhanger and I'm usually not a fan of cliffies but the plot of this book was so good, I couldn't possibly not want to read what's going to happen next to Bryer and Nathan. I'm so hooked, I want to read the next book already. And Virginia Wine has just become one of my new favorite authors.

Forgotten Truth By Virginia Wine

Bryer Reid doesn’t trust easily after what her ex-fiance, Cash, did to her. But she’s willing to try try again. So when her best friend, Gen, encouraged her to go after her personal trainer at the gym, she gave it her all.

Nathan James is beautiful, sinfully sexy and off limits. He’s a playboy, he’s a bad boy personified, and Bryer’s trainer. She can’t seem to keep her eyes off him, even with his other ‘clients’. When Bryer invites him for ice cream, she’s embarras

*This book was gifted to me by the author for an honest review*

This is a very enjoyable read from new author Virginia Wine. Nathan and Bryer are maybe one of my favorite new couples I’ve read over the past months. Their story is fresh and fun, they are full of passion and heat, and both have wounds they need each other to help heal. This story follows Nathan, owner of a gym that Bryer works out at. He happens to be her personal trainer & they both seem to like one another, but one day Bryer

I was asked to read Forgotten Truth for an honest review and I was so pleased to be asked. I loved this book.

The book is about Bryer Reid and her life and the way she has been treated in life. I loved Bryer; she has been mistreated and had so much heartache that all you can do is to feel for her. She is intelligent, beautiful and deserves more.

Bryer decides she deserves a new life a fresh start so to speak, she decides she wants a new job, new routine, everything new, after all her old life didn

I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this story but what I got literally blew me away.

I wasn’t convinced I was going to enjoy this one in the beginning, there were a few instances where Nathan was very stiff and it didn’t mesh with the character that was being portrayed.

There were some really good twists and turns in this one and i have to say the book kept my attention the whole way through.

3.5-4 stars. Bryer Reid has a crush on her personal trainer, Nathan James. She hasn't had much luck with relationships and the last major one she had shattered her trust in men. Nathan is charming, seductive, serious and confident. He's also not someone who ties himself to women so even though he's very attracted to Bryer, he knows she's a commitment type of girl. But Bryer decides to kick it up a notch and take control of the situation by asking Nathan out and he agrees. From there, they start ...more

For Nathan James and Bryer Ried the past is their enemy, and they have to overcome it before they can move forward.
When Bryer was wounded by the man she loved she ran, as far and as fast as possible, and started a new life. Now that she's got her life on track, life has thrown in a hot sex God to stir things up. She knows she wants Nathan, but she's not sure she's willing to risk her heart again on a man who clearly only does casual.

Forgotten Truth (The Forgotten Series Book 1) by Virginia Wine

Forgotten Truth is Virginia Wine’s first novel, a contemporary novel that captures all we desire from a modern romance with a dash of angst that we readers crave.

Virginia offers a refreshing penmanship as she leads us into the world of Nathan and Bryer, two characters that are immediately likeable. Out of heartbreak comes hope, out of the extremes of cruelty comes the promise of retribution.

Forgotten Truth is a debut book that people won't be forgetting easily! This fast paced sweet, sexy love story is a really good start to this series.
I instantly fell in love with Nathan! I mean who wouldn't! He's HOT!!
I struggled with Bryer though, for someone who had her heart-broken I feel she fell in love and trusted again way to easily. I would have loved to have seen more sass from her and a bigger build up to thier relationship, it all happened very quick and lacked angst.

I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review. This was a fantastic debut novel. It has a little bit of everything. Hot passion between Nathan and Bryer. Little bit of mystery surrounding Nathan's pesky nightmares. Very little angst due to Nathan's playboy past. And some great supporting characters as well.

I really loved the relationship that developed between Bryer and Nathan. They were so sweet and cute at times. And other times, there were off the charts sexy. Their relationship deve

The title of the book fits the story to perfection. So many twists and turns in this story! I was first drawn in by the hero and heroine, Nathan and Bryer (fantastic name!) and their innate goodness. Nathan is a gym owner and player until he meets Bryer, a successful account executive. She immediately brings out his fierce protective and possessive side. It seems like there's an invisible thread tying these two people together. There's also some serious sexual heat generated in the pages of this ...more

Virginia Reid did a great job in the development of her characters of Nathan and Bryer. Bryer was introduced by the infidelity of her fiancé Cash. Nathan is a owner/trainer at a local gym. Bryer started over with a new place, job, and routine. Nathan didn't follow his father's wishes but his passion which was the gym.

Bryer met Nathan at the gym as he was her trainer. Bryer is aware of Nathan's past with females. Bryer has reservations over Nathan's intentions. Bryer and Nathan have chemistry.

When's book two?

Wow this a fast paced, easy to read book with a heroine that finds it hard to trust and Nathan is a playbook hero with issues that you wouldn't even suspect.

But underneath that we have two people who just want to be happy.

Bryer had to start a new life when she left her cheating fiance and Nathan has nightmares every night for reasons unbeknownst to him.

This was an awesome read, with just enough twists, suspense and hotness. The author draws you into the with enough curiosity, in the prologue and continues throughout the book. The characters and story are well developed and the sex is well written. Just so you aren't upset this does end with a cliffhanger.

I really liked this read and can't wait for the next one. I just hope it isn't a long wait. I recieved this book for an honest review. I hope you buy, read and enjoy, as much as I did.

Some people think story is much more important than the quality of the writing used in telling that story. I'm not one of them.

The story in this book is very very good. However, the book itself would have been so much better if the author had used the services of a top notch editor. Ms. Wine obviously has a lot of talent, but she's doing herself a disservice by not giving her work the proper polishing it deserves.

Be advised: there's a lot of foul language in this book, as well as some steamy se

I did not finish this book. Did not even get half way through, but it goes like this. Crappie cheater causes trust issues for her, playboy decides to go good boy and show her how good it can be, douche bag ex shows up starting trouble confusion with feelings and trust issues with both, they work it out and live happily ever after. Come on get original.

Super Sexy

This book catches you attention early on which I like. I love how the relationship blossoms between Nathan and Bryer. I know she has major trust issues due the jackass ex, but I really enjoyed watching her begin to trust Nathan even with his playboy past. I'm anxious to see how the next book turns out. I knew there was going to be a cliffhanger when we still hadn't heard from Cash. I can't wait to see what she has in store in the next book. Great writing!!

What in the heck?

I cant describe my utter disappointment in this read. This had no visible editing and the most abrupt and awful dialogue transitions I have ever read. There were pages of endless back and forth dialogue. Trust me, that doesn't t work at all. The sad part is that there was a pretty good plot line going and a cliffhanger that even made me consider continuing this horrific journey...
