the memory of you:.:.:. 850.jpgAn Exciting New Read by Jamie Beck–Coming 10/30/18

 

 

The Memory of You is an engaging, emotional and well-written novel.

Twenty-nine-year-old, Steffi Lockwood is a businesswoman, driven, and independent. She owns a refurbishing company, with her close friend, Claire. Lately, Steffi has become irritated, over her friend’s nagging. Steffi admits that her dissociative episodes were puzzling and bothersome, but not enough, to see a specialist. Steffi has already checked with her neurologist and was satisfied with his findings. Claire disagreed and wanted her partner to seek a second opinion. Steffi refused to see any more doctors, and counseling was out of the question. Steffi would reconsider, however, when her stubbornness, put a little girl in danger.

Letting go of Ryan Quinn, was Steffi’s biggest regret in life. She left him ten years ago without saying a word. Ryan was devastated. He took up with a girl who was the complete opposite of Steffi. When Val, his rebound girlfriend, announced that she was pregnant, he married her.

While working on divorce negotiations, Ryan moved back into his mother’s house, taking his daughter, Emmy, with him. Ryan was livid when he found Steffi Lockwood with his mother. Steffi’s heart stopped when she saw the man, whom she has loved forever. Although she knew that she had no reason to expect forgiveness from Ryan, she desperately wanted it.

Life is never black and white. It’s messy, complicated and filled with hope, happiness, hurts, and disappointments. The Memory of You is a well-written, emotional book, about relationships, divorce, forgiveness, and love. I cared about the characters right from the start and was emotionally invested in their lives. I loved this book and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

Thank you Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy

When You Knew::.jpg 850.jpg

Don’t Miss Jamie Beck’s Newest, Outstanding Novel-When You Knew-Coming 6/26/18

 

When You Knew is a superbly-written, and highly emotional, novel. The author transported me into her story, captured my heart, and kept me turning the pages until the very end. I’ve read all three books in this series and I loved them all. When You Knew, however, I think is my favorite. If there are more books in this series, I’ll be reading them. 

Gentry Cabot felt like the black sheep of the family, the underachiever, the single mother who couldn’t  juggle work and her infant son effectively. Ian the man she hired to help her, was the only person who truly believed in her and felt that she was competent. 

Ian Crawford was broke. He had spent money that he hadn’t planned on spending, to fly home and collect his things from his ex-fiancee’s house. He didn’t blame her for breaking up with him; he wasn’t good boyfriend material, considering that he was never home. Ian was a humanitarian, and most of his work took him away to foreign countries, like Haiti. 

When Gentry offered Ian a great salary and a place to stay in exchange for watching her colicky son, he took it. What he didn’t expect was to develop feelings for Gentry and her son Cole. So when the father of Cole, entered the picture, Ian knew that it was time to leave. He just didn’t think it would hurt so much.

I was completely invested in Gentry and Ian’s lives. I welled up more than once reading this book. To say, that I was engrossed in the story is an understatement. I couldn’t put the book down.  It’s a story about being true to oneself, letting go of other people’s expectations, and allowing yourself to be vulnerable again. I found this book to be thought-provoking, heart-wrenching, touching and humorous. I loved it and highly recommend giving it a read. This book gets five shining stars from me!

Thank you, Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Don’t Miss Jamie Beck’s Newest Captivating Novel, Coming 1/30/18!

All We Knew

 

Synopsis

For Hunter and Sara, getting married was easy. It’s staying together that’s the true test of love…

Hunter Cabot deeply loves two things: the international tea company he’s helped his father build, and his wife, Sara. From the moment he first saw her wide smile on their college campus years ago, Hunter fell hard. Yet now, with other family members pushing to sell the thriving business and Sara grieving their failure to start a family, he’s suddenly facing the crushing loss of both.

The relentless ambition that Sara once admired in Hunter is now driving them apart. Each missed doctor’s appointment, neglected dinner date, and family squabble accentuates their differing priorities. Still, Sara struggles to create the home life they’d envisioned, until unsettling developments—both personal and professional—push them to the breaking point.

When love is put to the ultimate test, can Hunter and Sara stop fighting each other long enough to fight for their marriage?

 

My Review

All We knew is a captivating novel about family secrets, lies, and broken promises. This is also a novel about the power of forgiveness and how it can soften and heal even the hardest of hearts.

Sara Cabot longed to have children. But after years of trying to get pregnant, even with the help of medical intervention, motherhood, remained just a dream for her. Sara and Hunter both felt that their relationship was a strong one. They thought that they would be able to weather just about anything, but when Sara’s desire to become pregnant became an obsession, and Hunter’s passion for the family business came before Sara, a wedge was driven between them.

The characters in this book are well-developed and intriguing. Sara was my favorite; her loving personality won me over right from the start. Hunter, however, took a bit longer. Although Hunter loved Sara and tried to please her, his strong desire to succeed, had him placing his work before his wife’s needs, again and again.

This book has wonderful lessons, woven seamlessly, into the fabric of the story, giving the novel depth and meaning. Some of the thoughtful topics covered in this book are forgiveness, empathy, compassion, and compromise. One of the hardest things for a person to do is to see themselves in a clear, honest, light. But, when they do, anything is possible.

Thank you, Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
