3.5 Stars

Hmmm...so this turned out to be a bit of a mixed bag for me. On one hand, I just adore this author's writing, and this one was no different in that regard. It was also very well paced. The plot was engaging and certainly had me turning the pages. The sex scenes were suitably hot. It was somewhat angsty, but nothing too bad. There was no OW or OM drama (apart from a blip right at the start). It had a couple of interesting secondary characters (although I had a bit of a love-hate relatio

okay, I am normally not the biggest fan of second chance romances. And when I started this one, it was looking like a book filled with drama and too many secrets. So I sat there and actually thought this is gonna be a long book because it is so rare an author can write a book filled with all that and not make me annoyed at the characters at making everything harder than it needs to be. BUT not this book! After I got to know Brenton and Rebeka I started slowly to fall in love with them.

Be prepared! It’s a rollercoaster of emotions!

I had so many mixed emotions throughout this book. Both characters had to deal with some pretty crappy times.

I'm a sucker for second chance romance so I knew it was a winner for me.

Loved this sexy, intense little thrill ride. Small town - check. Second chance romance - check. Hot military man - check. Sexy, sassy heroine - check. Oh and did I mention this is all wrapped in a suspense filled package?? So good!

The BEST ‘Memory Loss’ story I’ve ever read. This book pulled me out of a reading funk I was sliding into lately!

So Brenton & Beka’s story is a MUST READ! A romance filled with sadness, laughter, bossiness, blunt unapologetic sexiness, sass, threats to whipping and kicking ass, heartbreaking reveals, redemption, forgiveness and making up for lost times. Lots of making up!

One of the most compelling stories told with a lot of great humour, sass, maturity and lots of fun! I love that Beka was real

Holy goodness! Where to begin?! This small town second chance romance is beyond steamy!
Be prepared! It’s a rollercoaster of emotions!
There’s so many highs and lows and it flows together perfectly. From hurt and anger, to love and laughter.
It’s one book I wish didn’t have to end.
It’s a must read for anyone who loves second chance romances!

Memories of Us is such an intense, heartwarming, heart wrenching and loving story! There were so many twist and turns in this book that I kind of saw coming but reading it and experiencing it was something else. The love and chemistry between Rebeka and Brenton is out of this world! You can feel how they feel even when they don’t say the words or when they act out towards each other.
This book will be out December 10th and I would recommend you all do yourself a favor and PRE-ORDER IT NOW🥳🥰

Lovely second chance romance

What a beautifully written story about 2 broken souls who find their way back together again.

Both characters with their own hardship make it work. Kennedy this book was everything.

I cried, laughed and cried again. Keep writing wonderful books like this.

A heartbreaking second chance romance that pulls all the heart strings. This is one of the few books, I've cried while reading. It doesn't help that my grandparents had a farm growing up so many of my own memories intermingled with this story and characters. It is a must read!

Brenton Graves left his grandfather's ranch right after high school for college. Both he and his brother, Caleb attended school in Dallas--six hours away from the ranch. It also placed both boys closer to their alcoholic fa

I absolutely devoured this book! Kennedy L. Mitchell knows how to write contemporary romance with twists and turns that will keep you glued to the pages. This second chance romance was emotional and suspenseful as a forgotten past is remembered. I fell hard for Brenton - the broken and arrogant millionaire who ran away to join the army and left his family ranch; and I loved Rebekah - the broken-hearted, sassy Texan vet who has not let go of their past. These two together were HOT, HOT, HOT...the ...more

This was my first Kennedy Mitchell book and I was extremely pleased with how it turned out! I also loved the idea of it as soon as I saw the blurb and thought the amnesia aspect was going to be quite the ride. I was not wrong about that either!

This book went through all the emotions- I loved getting the full back story and I loved how it was given to the readers in little pieces, so that we got a little glimpse at a time and then could speculate which way it was going to go. Then we got to be co

Memories of Us by Kennedy L. Mitchell
“Second chances, 5 stars”

Rebeka’s life hasn’t been the same since the car accident years ago. The life she thought was ahead of her changed and its about to change again. Will she listen to what Brenton has to say or will she shut him down before he even gets a chance? There is one thing Rebeka has learned is that nothing goes according to plan.
Brenton once lived a life on the reckless side, but times have changed and he’s always in control. Or so he thinks.

Brenton and Rebeka fell in love but were torn apart years ago. When they see each other after so many years apart, so many unasked questions, so many things that needed to be answered can't be by Brenton because he doesn't remember. He feels peace around her and he doesn't have a lot of that in his personal life.

With him and Rebeka getting to know each other again, the memories start coming back. Is he going to like what he remembers? What's he going to do with the information that he didn't rem

It didn’t take long to get sucked into Brenton and Rebeka’s story. I love B’s arrogant personality and Beks’ feisty spirit. Watching them navigate through Brenton’s memory loss and Rebeka’s past heartbreak had me on the edge of my seat to see if they would find their way back to one another. Well written love story with plenty of sexy romance as well! Do yourself a favor and pre-order for the December 10th release!

Loved Beks and Brenton! My first KLM book and I fell in love with her writing style. Relatable characters with a lot to overcome to get their HEA. Filled with secrets, great characters, and an amazing love story this book will give you all the feels. Will they be able to unlock the secrets of the past to move forward in their relationship? You have to read and find out!

Memories?

What a fantastic book! It was nonstop reading. I wanted to yell at everyone to tell them to stop being so stupid. The fathers were not dads. They were more monsters. They didn’t deserve to be fathers. The book had heart.
