Book Review: Say You Remember by H. D’Agostino

sayyouremember

Genre: Contemporary Romance

I had it all once…I was popular, a jock, the center of attention in any group, friends that followed me everywhere. I thought I ruled the world, and in my high school I did. Girls threw themselves at me, and I used them knowing they’d never mean anything until I met her…Danielle Reed.

I never planned on liking her or even falling in love, but I did. I fell hard, and I ruined it before it could really begin.

It’s been eight years now. I never thought I’d see her again, but here she is. The thing is, she can’t stand me. She reminds me every chance she gets of what a horrible person I was, and how she hopes I rot in hell. I know it would be simpler to just move on and forget about her, but I can’t. I can’t let her go, and I don’t want to.

Danielle Reed will be mine again. I just need to make her remember.

SGMyReview

Although this is the fourth book in the series, I went into the book reading as a stand alone (having not read any others). I had to re-read the beginning over so that I could place myself where the characters where. Once I did, I settled in and managed to capture the essence of the novel.qabkzl6r82i6q

The story flowed back and forth through past and present point of view. This could be confusing, but for this book it really worked to get character backgrounds and where they were coming from. The alternate point of views never overlapped so much that you were reading the same thing, this helped to move the story along.

I really felt for Dani, especially after Mason’s betrayals (the crux of the story). I couldn’t believe she held onto so much anger for so many years. It was nice to see Mason had been through his own life’s trials and tribulations that it was able to make him into the better person he is all those years later. The person he needed to be to jjgup9efwrsukhelp Dani remember the times he wants back.

Pick this book up if you are after a second chance romance full of heartache and redemption.

Excerpt

Bald eagle in flight, representing a scene from Nightingale Way, by Emily MarchFeeling better about the world than she had in weeks, Cat relaxed. She dozed for a bit, then awoke slowly, soaking in the sun and drinking in the sound of water crashing over stones, and the comfort of the small dog resting beside her. This was a little piece of paradise, wasn’t it?

When a yellow butterfly danced across the air above her, she watched it until something higher in the sky caught her notice.

The bird was huge, with a wingspan of at least six feet as it soared and circled above the valley. Cat sat up and shielded her eyes with her hand, watching the bird’s majestic presence. Was that an eagle? She wasn’t sure. She’d never seen an eagle in the wild, but since Jack had told her his estate was named Eagle’s Way, she wouldn’t be surprised.

As she watched, the bird suddenly turned and dived toward the ground. As he came closer, she saw the familiar bald head and decided that yes, he had to be an eagle. How cool was this?

He swooped down upon the meadow and she heard a cry, then he rose with his prey – a rabbit – wiggling in his talons. Cat gave a little shudder, and murmured to Peanut, “I’d better keep a close eye on you whenever we’re outside.”

She turned her attention back to the water, and that’s when she saw him. Jack stood downstream some fifty yards or so with a fly rod in his hands. She watched him work the line with a fluid, artistic grace, and an old, familiar yearning washed through her.

Those hands. Those talented hands. They’d made her body sing like none before and none since.

Suddenly he yanked back on the rod. Color flashed on the surface of the stream as he reeled the rainbow trout in. Once he had the wriggling fish gripped securely in his hand, he looked her way. The predatory triumph in his eyes brought the eagle to mind.

A frisson of apprehension skittered up Cat’s spine. This might be her opportunity, but she was in his territory. She’d best keep watch on more than the sky while she was in Eagle’s Way.

Excerpt

You know, I’ve been a lot of places in this world, but this place is still one of my favorite spots.”

“It is beautiful.”

“That’s not it. The world has plenty of beautiful places. What made this so great is that I was happy here.”

“In Eternity Springs?”

“No. Here at Lover’s Leap. With you.”

He sounded so sincere. Sarah’s heart hitched. Was he trying to seduce her all over again? Is that what this is about? What that kiss was about this afternoon?

She was vulnerable to him. Well, vulnerable to the old, or make that the young Cam.

“I expect everyone is a little nostalgic about their teenage days to some extent.”

“I’m not talking about nostalgia. I’ve never been nostalgic about those days; I have nightmares about those days. I’m talking about happiness, which for me means Lover’s Leap. I never bought into the whole thrill of the forbidden thing. I hated sneaking around with you. This was the only place we were honest.”

He gave his head a shake, then said, “I’m sorry. I sound like a whiny kid. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’m in the weirdest mood tonight.”

He’s talking about his feelings and emotions. He’s a guy. Of course he thinks it’s weird.
