Destiny is bogus and fate is fake.
Everything happens for a reason?
I gave up on my fairy tale years ago.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not settling for less.
All my energy gets poured into a job I love rather than dead end relationships.
Men aren't even a blip on my radar these days.
Who needs them?
Except to scratch the occasional itch, I'm not interested in anything the

This book is insta-love to the max and it was all a little too much for me. I couldn't get on board with the fact that it was only page one and these characters were already in a love-haze. The first meeting between them was insane to me and it disconnected me from their characters. They had one interaction that wasn't even that long and where they barely spoke to one another yet somehow they were meant to be? Sorry just not for me.

I pushed on and hoped that when the time skipped to the present

Silk-wrapped Candy
You know those little pieces of candy you try not to buy at the store? The ones that are hard and oh-so-deliciously sweet and once you bite into them they're an explosion of liquid flavor and you crave them all at once? That's Forget You Not.

Forget You Not

Already on page one, we're thrown smack into plain action. We're voyeurs to an insta-love that can only be rivaled by Romeo and Juliet, because—whoa, chemistry anyone?

Lark is forever branded by that first meeting with Rowen, and her way of

This is going down as one of my most favorite books ever! Let me tell you this couple is one of the most beautiful stories I have EVER read! Their is only a handful of couples I read that stay with me and leave a major impact and Rowen and Lark are one of the most dynamic and passionate couples I have read about! Rowen...just swoon!!! I loved his determination to prove his feelings for Lark, it was a battle but he never let his feelings slip. It only got stronger. He was such a genuine, fantasti ...more

Holy shit the heroine of this one is a god awful grade A bitch. I seriously want to throat punch her every time she opens her mouth. She is literally unable to have a conversation with ANYONE (her friends included) without being a cunt...


Talia (Red Hot Ink)

Forget You Not is a second chance romance starring one sassy yet insecure Lark and one impossibly charming army veteran Rowen. They met many and many moons ago and while their connection was instant, destiny kept them apart.

I circle back to how dumb it was to gauge Rowen as the ideal man that day. We hardly spoke a word to each other yet I placed him on a pedestal. Our souls bonding. His gaze reflecting the future. My one and only. Barf. How ridiculous.

Now, seven years later, they are th

This one was not for me. I tried to get into it and even skipped a chapter to see if it got better. It was too fast paced for me and I did not like the heroine at all. I will not be finishing this book.

I have never written a bad review, but I simply cannot understand how anyone can connect to this ridiculous story and find this bunny boiler mentality romantic.

The heroine is a nutcase, she's supposedly this incredible woman with an "expensive psychology degree" but is acting like a toddler that hasn't had a nap. I wanted to reach into the book and bitch slap her.

The hero is ridiculous, anyone who tells a woman that they are their soulmate within the first 2 minutes of meeting someone se

5 Insta-Lovey Stars!

If you’re a fan of insta-love, then this is THE book for you. I'm not one to give all the details of the book away in a review, but I'll say this. Lark and Rowen will melt your heart from page one and turn you into one pile of hot and gooey caramel. This book is off the charts steamy and Rowen is now the owner of my heart. Harloe Rae wove a story with the perfect blend of characters, swoon-worthy love, and the perfect HEA in this one. I was beyond thrilled to see Willow and X

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Forget you not ...and let me say I loved Rowen and Lark as much as I loved Xander and Willow from Redefining Us. This is only the second book written by the very talented Harloe Rae and i would not change one thing ...Lark and Rowens story begins when Rowen happens to stop at a local diner called Brack's Box where the beautiful Lark happens to work at. The moment they see each other they know this is the person who I am meant to be with forever..But of ...more
DNF. This did not work for me. I started this one and the flow of the story did not grab me. Dual POVs. The heroine met the hero for a brief "moment" and was just wowed by him. So much that 7 years later she was still thinking about him. She was a waitress and seated the hero at a table. Told him she would be back and 30 minutes later he was gone. Seven years later, she sees him at her friend's party, but acts like she does not remember him. From the hero's POV, I felt that he was like "oh there ...more

Forget You Not starts out with the bang, the chemistry between the two main characters igniting from the moment of impact.

These two characters, while enjoyable, overall lacked the depth that I like in the protagonists of a story. The hero, Row, is perfect. He says and does the right things, and he is searching for the long term commitment. I'm not sure there is one negative aspect I could say about him, although there were areas that could ha
“My heart pounds a rhythm I’ve never known before because it’s beating along with yours"

I love these kind of books. Girl meets Boy, sparks fly but fates conspire to keep them apart. The books that make you believe in destiny and soul mates. Harloe Rae more than does this trope justice. Beautifully written, this book sucked me in from the prologue. Lark isn't always the easiest character to like, writing a hard headed woman is not for the faint of heart author, but by the end I utterly loved her

Where do I even start? Forget You Not will make you fall in love with love again. Second chance romance is my go to trope and Harloe outdid herself with her second book. I was so ready to read Lark's story and loved her since I read Redefining Us. I loved revisiting Wills and X!!! They are a huge part of this book and I was glad they did not just make an appearance and then sneak away. I also read this one book recently titled "Fight" by another wonderful author J.L. Davis.

Forget You Not was not only a fast read but such a fun read! Not to mention the steam factor that is introduced. From the beginning I knew that I would love Lark and Rowan. 

Unlike some romance novels this books isn't all gold that glitters. There is some struggle, there is some oh-how-sweet moments, and some super sexy scenes that just might make your mama blush! 

Harloe absolutely knew what she was doing when she wrote this book! It was so captivatin

Forget You Not had my heart in a flutter, l was so happy that Lark and Rowen's paths had crossed again it is their destiny to be soul mates! Lark is gorgeous, but Rowen still swooning, he is perfect in everyway! Loved getting more of Xander & Willow in this story! Awesome ending!

Harloe Rae is quickly becoming a go to author for a must read emotional roller coaster ride.
I really love how her stories tug at your heartstrings.

Destiny, chance, fate? whatever you call it, cupid struck and there was no escape for lark.

Forget you not is an insta-love romance and second chance romance.

When lark and Rowen first meet at the diner where Lark is working it's love at first sight and Rowen tells lake exactly how he feels and they both feel the chemistry and the connection. Rowen lets Lark know he wants to explore his feelings he is having for her and will wait for her until her shift ends, only when her shift ends Rowen has g

One swoon worthy read that will captivate you from page one straight through to the very last word. Will you want more...well of course you will because you will become vested in this couple and will want to follow them throughout their entire lives! The storyline is warm and inviting before it throws cold water on you, only to begin to heat up again until it has reached it's boiling point. The characters are well written and complex, but also so very likable that you wish you were part of their ...more

I thought this was a sensitively, passionate read, one that dished up one of the best alpha men that I have read this year, Rowen oozed not only everything I could possibly want from a leading man but he did it all with swoon factor that tipped me right over the edge, hands down he was simply the most drool-worthy guy I have read in a long time!
But he wasn’t in the story alone, nope his muse, the object of not only his attention but also his affections was the delightful Lark and between them, t

Reviewed on behalf of Reading Through Her Eyes.

I was blown away by this book. This was the perfect introduction to Harloe Rae. The writing was superb, the characters were so real, and the story itself was amazing.

Rowen is the perfect man; sexy, tough, shows emotion when he needs to, and tenacious when going after something (or someone) he wants. He is definitely one of my favorite male leads of the year.
Lark is stubborn, independent, and jaded toward love. Yet, deep down she wants that once in a

5 Stars!

Harloe Rae WAS a new to me author when I started this book but I can promise you that will be quickly changing because just yes! Sexy. Sweet. Everything. Harloe killed it in this standalone book, giving me all of the feels in the best ways.

Forget You Not is the second book in the Reclusive series (interconnected in the series but can be read by itself) and a total major hit with me. I went on quite the emotional roller coaster in this sweet romance...that was packed with a whole lot of h

Rowen is Mine!!!!

Holy Harloe!!!! Making a review for amazing books are a big deal,especially if this book owned your heart.
I felt like Lark in so many ways that I needed to stop every single chapter, this story is close to home.

Lark has an encounter with real love and soul mate, but as she saw him coming in her life, she saw him leaving her with nothing but a name.

Rowen meet the prettiest girl one day, with one look he knew she was his future, but destiny had some other plans and took him away

Harloe Rae has got it going on!

I was really captivated by Lark and Rowen's story from the very beginning. I'm a huge fan of insta-love stories so I knew this was going to pull at my heart. I have to say though that I struggled with Lark's character. In fact, I had a hard time even liking her and found her to be almost bratty. I wanted to scream at her and tell her to wake up. That she had something really good right there in front of her. I mean guys like Rowen don't happen often. She did grow

There was just something about this book that called out to me. I have not read a Harloe Rae book before and I'm so glad I stumbled upon this one. While it is part of a series, it was a true standalone. I do want to read Redefining Us and I will be doing that soon.
This book had me laughing, crying, swooning, frustrated, and so much more. I loved Harloe's take on insta-love. Usually insta-love books are a bit hokey for me but this book pulled me and had me reading

Here is the thing, I am so in love with these two. After Xander and Willows story I thought I found a book boyfriend but now I was so off on the choice; I want Rowen. I could not put this book down at all, it followed me into the kitchen while I was fixing supper and when I was finished I was so upset. This book had you believing in the magic and the romance of first gazes and instant connection. Their story grabbed me from the first meeting and tore at every emotion that I know to exist.

This is my first book by Harloe and it is just fabulous. Lark comes across as a bit of a man eater at the start of this book, seeming to want only one thing from them. But as you read more about her, the way she acts is just a coping mechanism as the most important man in her younger years walked out in her and her mother.
Rowan is one of the best male leads I have read in a while. I do like to read about super alpha men, and Rowan does have his alpha moments, but he is really just a beautiful so

Oh Harloe, you sure know how to write 'em!
First, I freaking loved Lark. Right off the bat I was thinking how relatable she is, falling for someone from a chance encounter then feeling scorned for actual years. But then I admired how brave she was and how she handled herself. There was something I found in her at every turn and twist that I could relate to, and I loved her for it. And Rowan? Ugh Sweet lord that man. Row was every fantasy come to life for me. I loved every ounce of this book and w
