Book Description:

There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four-year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. With her life about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon.

But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people—suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.

Echols is the queen of light and easy reads that will race readers through her pages of her spell binding romances. I love reading all of Jennifer Echols books; which makes her one of my most favorite authors. Each and every one of her stories is submerged in deep heartfelt emotion that is a breeze to read and love. Forget You was a little more provocative than most of the Echols books that I have read, but it was not unwarranted and fit into this story perfectly. A master creator of characters brings the excellence of this book to a whole new level. This is a story that will hold your attention long past the last page. As a whole this is a story and intense story with many twists and turns. Echols use of assumption in novels is very impressive; the way she utilizes assumption in her story is absolutely astounding; she creates a situation that will leave readers questioning the characters motives and adding to the intensity of story. This should be a must read for any romance lover, and with Echols being the author it promises to be a favorite.
