Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

"Remembering will save her life. But will the truth destroy their love forever?

His mission orders: Infiltrate an FBI suspect’s mountain retreat and obtain evidence of her guilt.

Her doctor’s orders: Recuperate from a vicious shooting, and end her waking nightmares.

What he doesn’t know: Is she guilty, innocent, or crazy? Can she ever forgive his past betrayal?

What she doesn’t know: Anything about herself or her life before the attack…or if she can even trust the man with whom she is falling in love."

My Thoughts:

Why should you read Her Forgotten Betrayal? Well firstly it has a rekindled steamy romance, it also has a suspense filled story line, and did I mention the steamy romance? This is the kind of book that is very easy to finish in one sitting. Shaw and Cole are great characters and you will easily become invested in their story.

From the moment I picked up Her Forgotten Betrayal, I knew I was going to enjoy it. I am a sucker for romance, especially the kind of romance that is in this book. Love lost, love found again, only to be threatened once more, and then the inevitable question of will they make it work this time? These are the types of book that mess with your head and make your heart hurt, but I love them all the same. Maybe I am just a glutton for punishment, but there is something great about books like Her Forgotten Betrayal. Now add in a little bit of suspense and we have a winner.

While my favorite part of the story was the relationship, the suspense was not lacking. The book opens up with Shaw in danger, and that feeling of danger never completely goes away throughout the length of the novel. Even when you think Shaw is safe, there is still a nagging feeling that she is not. While I will admit to correctly guessing the culprit of all her problems, I was seriously stumped as to how and why he was the culprit. I could not figure out how the culprit was managing to get to Shaw and this kept me reading until I finally had the answer.

This story was very character driven and we meet very few characters outside of Shaw and Cole. While this may sound like a drawback, in this case it is not. The story centered around these characters and their past and issues and potential future. The addition of other characters would have taken away from their story and relationship. The novel is written in a way that allows you to get inside both Cole and Shaw’s head. This enables the reader to know how the characters are feeling and see how each are reacting to various situations. I always enjoy a book that allows me to see inside each of the characters head, that way I don’t have to guess their intentions and feelings.

Overall, Her Forgotten Betrayal is a great, quick, fun, and thrilling read. It is very easy to finish in one sitting, and therefore the perfect summer read. Grab the book and relax with it for a few hours.
