Review- Remembering Us by Stacey Lynn

*This book is for those who are 18+ 

(4.5 out of 5 Stars)

The story about a forgotten love and one woman's journey to remember it again. It's a heartfelt story and an emotional roller coaster. One minute you may be on the verge of throwing something (I was anyways) and just a page or so later you're laughing or smiling along with some of the characters. Stacey-Lynn did a wonderful job depicting each of them, their flaws and all.
The story follows Amy who suffers serious injuries and wakes up not remembering the last 2 years of her life. She wakes to a strange man sitting next to her bed only to find out, to her surprise, that he's her boyfriend of two years. Their entire relationship was wiped clean from her memory from the accident and now she has to work on remembering while trying to figure out who she has become.
If you think not much can happen in the span of 2 years then you are mistaken.
Amy was raised in a upper-class household with two extremely judgmental parents, more so her mother, who try to dictate every aspect of her life. She breaks free from that and builds the life she never knew she could have but always dreamed of thanks to Adam.
When she wakes from her coma and gets thrown back into the mix of things she finds that she has no idea who the girl is that she became. She attempts to live the life she had before she met Adam but it just doesn't feel right to her. None of it does.
There's a war raging in her head about whether she can trust Adam or not. She feels as though she lives with a stranger and, in a way, that's true considering she has almost no memory of him. He has demons of his own and Amy senses them but isn't sure if they're a danger to her or not. They try to work together to overcome them but the question is will it help her remember? Also, if she does remember, will it make her feel safe with Adam or just more scared?
The chemistry between the two is undeniable. Amy belongs to Adam, body and soul, however, her mind has to catch up.
The story has a few twists and turns one of which I didn't see coming and it had me in tears reliving it through Amy's memory.
When I first started this read, the story-line reminded me of the movie The Vow. However, it was just that, a minute similarity. Stacey Lynn writes such a beautifully tragic, yet triumphant story. I couldn't read the pages fast enough. She makes it her own and I loved every minute of it! I can't wait to see what other stories she brings to life. I am definitely a fan!
