Reckless Memories by Catherine Cowles

Whew. This one was an emotional doozy. It is not often that a novel actually brings me to tears, but this one did exactly that, a few times. I just couldn't handle the emotional roller coaster this book was page after page. I managed though and it was amazing and absolutely worth it.

This book is the first book in a new series from Catherine and if you love a good CR that pulls at your heart and has a fantastic plot line, then this book is for you. A tragic accident rips this small town apart and the lives of these two characters. Throw them back together years later and watch the story unfold. These two have so much baggage it needs its own moving truck to trail behind them. Watching them deal wit hit wile also confronting what is currently in front of them was amazing. I loved getting to meet a whole new crew in this world and get an idea of who else is going to get a story because I am completely here for it. I feel for this crew HARD and am obsessed with who is getting a story next. Emotional and riveting, this is a novel that keeps you hooked page after page with complex characters and a plot that thickens the more ages you turn. Go buy it. Get hooked too.

I loved him before I knew what the word meant. From skinned knees to first dates and everything in between. But he was never mine to love. I settled for friendship, even though I always wanted more. That was before. Before he ripped my world apart and didn’t bother sticking around to help me pick up the pieces. I knit every last shred back together all on my own. And I’ve all but forgotten his name. Now, he’s back, and everything is torn apart once more. But he’s not the only one doing the tearing this time. And there might be no stopping the person who has it out for us both.
