Remember Me Forever by Sara Wolf. Entangled 2017. Netgalley.
Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, forty-three weeks, and two days. Or so she thinks.
The boy she maybe-sort-of-definitely loved and sort-of-maybe-definitely hated has dropped off the face of the planet in the face of tragedy, leaving a Jack Hunter–shaped hole. Determined to be happy, Isis fills it in with lies and puts on a brave smile for her new life at Ohio State University.
But the smile lasts only until he shows up. The menace from her past―her darkest secret, Nameless―is attending OSU right alongside her. And he’s whispering that he has something Isis wants―something she needs to see to move forward. To move on.
Isis has always been able to pretend everything is okay. But not anymore.
Isis Blake might be good at putting herself back together.
But Jack Hunter is better.
The Lovely Vicious series is best enjoyed in order.
Book #1 Love Me Never
Book #2 Forget Me Always
Book #3 Remember Me Forever
Isis has gone to college, trying her best to move on with Jack disappearing. The others are left to pick up the pieces. As her friends move off in different directions, Isis vows she won’t let circumstances break her. So, she goes about making new friends, going to class, but something is about to destroy her. She’s about to encounter Nameless, a boy who tortured her and more in her old high school. What she doesn’t know is: Jack has been working with a special organization that catches criminals and his assignment this time is Nameless.
When the three collide on campus, all chaos breaks out. Can Isis heal from her past? Will Jack be there for her? Does Nameless get what he deserves?
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book! It was a fantastic read and a fabulous end to the series! Isis and Jack are just a SUPER couple and they are not to be missed. The book is part mystery, part thriller, with a hot romance thrown in. There’s just steamy scenes, so no worries if you watch out for something more. What I love about these books is the deep relationships. Between frenemies. Between friends. I think Sara Wolf did a bang-up job getting the predator/prey relationship out there as well. As someone who has been there, I think these books go a long way to showing girls that life is not over. You can recover!
I’m giving it *****
