Review: Forget You

Title: Forget You
Author: Jennifer Snyder
Release Date: September 2nd 2014
Format: Ebook
Source: Author
Buy: Amazon, BN

Eva Bennett might be known for her candid approach and sharp tongue, but on the inside she’s still a vulnerable twenty-four year old who’s sick of kissing toads and being habitually single.

Full of comical one-liners and wielding a charming smile, Sawyer Keeton is more than meets the eye. After the news of his brother’s tragic death, however, Sawyer is pulled into a place filled with crippling emotions and pain—a place no one can seem to reach him…until the moment Eva steps into his life.

A twist of fate will bring them together and then tear them apart, forcing the two to learn there are people in life whom you cherish and pray will never forget you.

Eva Bennett, is a college student that isn't looking for a relationship with the kind of guys she's so used to. We all know the type, the jerky party boys that are just looking for a good time. She meets a soldier boy named Sawyer Keeton and quickly pegs him as one of those. After the two run into each other again, Eva decides to give him a chance, and they get each others phone numbers through mutual friends so they can go on a date.

Eva is quick witted, and knows how she wants to be treated. She's a strong character that I really enjoyed. She's hesitant to go on a date with Sawyer, but I'm so glad she did! The two just work so well together. Eva's character felt real while reading, she doesn't let the past get her down, it made her a stronger person.

Sawyer isn't a typical guy that likes to party and drink. He is in the National Guard, so he's disciplined. He is also dealing with losing his older brother that he was really close to. Eva is the first person that is able to take his mind off his huge loss. They quickly become inseparable, but not in an annoying way. This was not instant like/lust, it was built up at exactly the right pace, and I give major props to that since it's hard to do that in writing. Normally when I'm reading it's either too slow or too quick on the like/lust, but this one was perfect for me.

Forget You is an emotional read that had me quickly turning the pages so I could see what would happen next. While this is book four in the A Coldcreek Novel series, you can read this as a standalone. It is told in an alternating POV, each chapter changes between Sawyer and Eva. I really like that it's told this way, you get to know what each character is thinking and it flows really well. The emotions near the end were true to life, and almost had me tearing up. If I was going through that type of situation, that's exactly how I would feel. Kudos to JSnyder, I really enjoyed Forget You and highly recommend it if you're looking for a New Adult book with a sexy soldier.

  3. Wow this is so unlike you. I always see some badass current read here, nothing bubble gum like this. It's a great break from the action though right?
