Ben Porter may be living the dream, but it’s not his.
His dad’s health scare might not be the ideal reason to come home for the summer, but it’s a welcome break from the stellar glitz of Ben’s life in Los Angeles. Even if modeling has him rivaling Marky Mark’s fame, posing isn’t his passion. Landing a role with a Boston Shakespeare theater brings him closer to fulfilling his dreams of being a real actor.
Facing the reason he went west in the first place? That’s another story.
Lucy Minola’s dreams were shattered seven years ago when a drunk driver smashed into her brother’s car. She knows it was her fault. So as penance, she works hard to care for her family, goes to confession faithfully, and buries all the feelings she had for the person who left when she needed him most: her brother’s best friend.
When an injured dog brings them back together, Lucy’s good-girl façade begins to crack. Women everywhere are obsessed with the rad bod they see in magazines, but she’s the only one Ben seems to notice.
She can’t trust herself with the man who walked away… but can she let him go a second time?
This bittersweet romance, Book #2 in Karen Grey’s 1980’s Boston Classics series, proves that everyone deserves a second chance in love and in life.
I received this ARC from the author for an honest review. Thank you!
Forget about Me is the second book in the series Boston Classics by Karen Grey but you can read this book as a standalone. You can read my review of the first book What I’m Looking For. Forget about Me is the second chance romance between Lucy and Ben.
I’ve met hundreds of drop-dead gorgeous women since leaving Arlington for Los Angeles. Not a single one measured up to Lucy.
Ben is a model and actor in Los Angeles and he loves his profession and he has a good life in Los Angeles. He had to go back to Boston because his father is sick and he had to take care of him for a while. He decided that for the time he stays in Boston, he wants to play in the Shakespeare Boston theatre. When a stray dog injured finds his way to Ben’s house, he knows that he has to care for this dog, and for that, he goes to the vet where he meets his ex-girlfriend and the love of his life, Lucy.
It’s like he’s imprinted on me, and only his touch, his scent, the way he moves inside me.”
Lucy works at the vet and she loves to work with animals and she wants that one day to have her own business to train dogs. When she sees Ben after seven years, she remembered that she loves him and she still loves him even he left her when she needed him. Ben needs help from Lucy with his stray dog and Lucy accepts to help him. I really liked the banter and the connection between Lucy and Ben.
“I need her to know that I’ve always loved her”.
We learned more about their love story through flashbacks and how they broke up even if they still love each other. Ben and Lucy are amazing characters and they were perfect for each other. Forget about Me by Karen Grey is a slow romance and I recommend to everyone this beautiful story.
