Susi Reviews Remind Me
by Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers
First in a tantalizing new trilogy about reigniting a forbidden desire from long ago…
As heiress to a media empire Alessandra Sinclair was raised to put family obligations first. But everything changes the night her first love walks back into her life and turns her whole world upside down. Haunted by the memories of a secret romance with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, she can’t seem to get Hudson Chase out of her mind. Once again torn between two worlds, Allie must decide how much she’s willing to risk to have the love she’s always longed for.
Ten years is a long time to wait, but billionaire Hudson Chase didn’t become CEO of one of the country’s fastest growing companies by giving up on what he wants. Now that he’s got Allie in his sights again, he’s determined to make her regret breaking his heart. And this time, he’s going to make damn sure he’s not so easy to forget.
I am excited to share this next review with you because this is one book (in a series) that hooked me right from the start.
I came across Remind Me after reading several comments via social media. The moment I discovered the “muse” or inspiration for this book, I had to read it right away. Yes, I am a proud Gandy girl.
I immediately “one clicked” the book and read it. And, I can honestly tell you it was “unputdownable,” a word I often use with my friends (and students) when we can’t get enough of a book.
Remind Me is a second chance romance, but it’s not your typical story as you will discover when you read. Alessandra and Hudson haven’t seen each other in ten years. Their chemistry was strong years ago. But, life, parents, misunderstandings happen. Ten years later, so many things have changed. Both have moved on with their lives, but it is their reunion that is quite the event.
Let me tell you about the characters. I am a sucker for alpha males and Hudson Chase is the epitome of the true alpha male. He is powerful, gorgeous, demanding, passionate, intense, sexy as hell, funny, rich and lovable. He skyrocketed to the top of my book boyfriends list. Ann Marie and Amy did an amazing job describing this character I am currently infatuated with.
Alessandra Sinclair, the female lead is a beautiful wealthy socialite. Her work with charities makes her a warmhearted and lovable character. Her life is perfectly mapped out for her, or so it seems.
So back to this reunion, it is well, probably the best reunion I have read. Hudson Chase is on the prowl and Allie is his feast. This is where the story gets hot. Yes, be prepared for your eReader to steam up. This book has plenty of exquisitely written love/sex scenes.
There are other developments in this story to keep you on your toes. For one, there is a certain French guy in the picture as well as Allie’s parents and Hudson’s younger brother. But, you will need to read this book to find out what I mean. (Spoiler free review)
I love that the story is written from both Allie and Hudson’s perspectives. The reader is truly able to understand the characters better. I was able to sense all of Allie’s emotions as well as enjoy the intensity and passion that Hudson exudes.
Remind Me is what I consider a “complete book” because it played with all of my reader senses. It does have a surprising ending. I must say I was left hungry, just like Hudson for more.
Fortunately for readers, Release Me, the second book in the series will be out in July. Don’t fret, you’ll have more of Hudson and Allie searing through your eReaders soon.
I really enjoyed this book and proudly congratulate Ann Marie and Amy on their fantastic debut.
I gave this book 5 scorching stars.
(I am currently reading an ARC of Release Me, book 2 and OMG!) You’ll get that review when the book releases.
