Review: Don't Forget to Remember Me By Kahlen Aymes

Ryan Matthews has everything he ever wanted. Close to graduation from Harvard Medical School and on the verge of marrying his gorgeous and accomplished girlfriend, Julia Abbott, his dreams are about to come true.

Julia is on the fast track as a fashion editor for a big New York magazine. Ryan plans to join her there to complete his residency at a major trauma center and all of their sacrifice is finally at it's end.

When tragedy strikes, their relationship is hurled into turmoil that leaves Ryan devastated as sorrow drives him to keep his distance, while Julia reaches out to find him again.

The second book of The Remembrance Trilogy follows Ryan and Julia's quest to rebuild their stunning past; an incredibly beautiful and heart-breaking romance, full of passion, intensity and truly immeasurable love. You'll be left spellbound, breathless and aching for more...

Overall Thoughts:
This is easily one of the most tender and moving books I've ever read! I feel like I've been to hell and back with Ryan and Julia. It's like their troubles became my own and their triumphs made me feel victorious... crazy, I know but true!

Don't Forget to Remember Me picks up right where The Future of Our Past left off. A vicious car accident has caused Julia to forget some of the most important memories of her life and the most important person in her life, Ryan Matthews. With advice from Julia's doctor, Ryan regrettably decides to play down their relationship in front of her even though it pains him to do so. As time progresses, Julia finds herself falling back in love with the man who is said to only be her best friend, and Ryan finds himself pulling away from her for her own protection. Can the two lovers survive when every memory they've ever shared seems to be lost forever?

What I liked about this book:
Calling this book emotional and a tearjerker would be the biggest understatement of the century. I cried so much that I had to constantly remind myself that it wasn't happening to me, and that it was fiction. I feel like I know Ryan and Julia personally, as oppose to them being made-up characters.

The plot is detailed and brilliant in every way. The characters were passionate and emotional. The story was extremely tragic yet romantic, and just... the epitome of genius.

What I disliked about this book:
I felt super lonely while reading this book! Reading about Ryan and Julia's relationship and how completely consumed and obsessed they were with each other, made me want to reevaluate my own love life!

This is an absolute "Must-Read" in my opinion! I honestly have no idea how Aymes is going to outdo this book with the last installment of this trilogy, A Love Like This.
