Review: Remember Love by Riley Rhea

Remember Love by (Forever Love #1) by Riley Rhea
Release Date: October 2013


They say you can never go home again. Brenna James is about to finish her final year of college when a visit home could change everything. Fate was pushing her towards her childhood best friend, Tucker, leaving Brenna no other option than to remember memories from a time once forgotten. Can Tucker slip himself into her heart? Will he be able to show her his feelings? The biggest question is, can Tucker help Brenna remember love?


Every once in a while, it does the soul good to read a book that is so sweet it might cause cavities. This month’s sugar-coma inducing read for me is Remember Love by Riley Rhea. I came across this book when I saw its sequel listed as a new release and I couldn’t resist.

Remember Love is a friends-to-lovers story told from both Brenna and Tucker’s POV. With flashbacks scattered throughout, readers are given a glimpse into how these two met and other important moments from their past. The plot isn’t too surprising, but the characters are charming and the writing so warm, it’s easy to get swept away in the story.

Brenna is close to graduating when she returns home for a quick visit. Upon arriving in town, her path crosses with her childhood friend, Tucker. It’s hinted that there is more to their past, but it takes big gesture for her to open her mind up to the memories and the future. Brenna is a sweet gal with a fun personality. She speaks her mind, but has her moments of insecurity, especially where Tucker is concerned. Tucker stayed in their hometown, biding his time until his love remembers. He’s overly sweet, but not sickeningly so. He’s a man who knows what he wants and doesn’t hide his emotions.

One of the best aspects of Remember Love is the fact that Tucker isn’t the typical man-whore seen in most romances these days. He’s definitely not a prude or virginal, but he’s not out sleeping about with any willing woman. I loved that! In my next post, I will be touching on this subject, so I don’t want to get too detailed with my opinions quite yet.

While I am huge fan of this book, I will be honest and say there was one area I found too unbelievable. I don’t understand how Brenna can’t remember what Tucker wants her to remember. I find that farfetched, but that’s just a minor issue compared to the awesomeness that is the book itself.

Remember Love definitely pleased my romantic soul and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, Someone to Love.
