Review rating: 4.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: Don't Forget to Remember Me is as heartbreaking beautiful as I imagined it would be. After that whirlwind cliffhanger ending in the first book, this one jumps in right where we left off. You may want to snag a few tissues as the first moments are intense and full of emotions. Criers will be shedding tears- I don't doubt that one. It's the test of time. Ryan and Julia face their future which has changed so much, but they are ready to face it together. I can't say too much without giving the plot away, but if I thought the first book had such emotion, well they're only heightened even more in the second. I flew through the pages, waiting with baited breath as i hoped these two could get past what just happened, and it's a biggie! But it made me root for them even more.  I loved this story!  I can't wait to see what happens in book three.

This is NOT a series you can read in the middle and understand. Start with The Future of Our past, and then Don't Forget to Remember Me. If you want an emotionally engaging story to read, with a couple that has many obstacles in their way, you've got to try the Remembrance Trilogy
