My review of “I Wish I Could Remember You” by L.J. Epps is the latest stop on the BookBear Virtual Book Tour for the book. I was provided with a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
The main character in this book is Emily Montgomery, who is in the process of divorcing her cheating, abusive husband, Steven. Emily has started over with Robert, who promises to be the love of her life. Emily is involved in a terrible car accident, and finds herself with amnesia, unable to remember Robert at all, or any of Steve’s indiscretions. The book is about Steve’s attempts to win Emily back, and Robert’s attempts to have her remember.
The book is written in pretty simple language, making it good mind candy. There are unfortunately some typos, which jar an uptight person like me – things like “past” instead of “passed.” The dialogue is focused entirely on relationships, making it a tad bit unrealistic. I know there is more to the characters than is presented: the only thing they talk about is heartbreak. Even the men, and even in professional settings.
Which appeals to a certain audience. If you are a fan of soap operas, you will probably enjoy this book. If you watch a lot of Lifetime Movies of the Week, you will probably enjoy this book. It is a fast read, and the pages go by quickly, and you do find yourself cheering for Robert, Since Steven is so obviously a toad.
Will he win in the end? Read the book yourself and find out, by clicking the link below.
