A Night to Forget is the first book in the two-book series, Emma's Story. The second book in this series, The Day to Remember is scheduled to be released in August 2013.

What happens in Cancun doesn’t always stay in Cancun.

When Emma Anderson and her friends decided to spend their senior year Spring Break in Cancun, she expected some crazy memories to end their final college days. What Emma didn’t expect was to meet Brandon Fisher. Tall and sexy, with dimples that would make any girl swoon, Brandon Fisher was literally the man of Emma’s dreams. She couldn't quite believe that this stranger, who seduced her every night in her dreams, actually existed.

After serendipitously bumping into each other, Emma could not resist Brandon’s pull and spent an unforgettable night with him. Passing it off as a spring break fling, Emma never expected to see Brandon again. But when she started her first day at her new job a few months later, there he was. The only problem was, Brandon didn’t even remember her.

-- My Rating --
3/5 Oscars: Liked it...

-- My Thoughts --

     The blurb of this book really intrigued me.  I liked the idea of amnesia, even though it's not new, I have not read anything about it before. But sadly, I was disappointed on that part. And many other parts, too
     Emma is just an average girl , graduating from college. And what's better than a trip to Cancun for the last summer with her three friends? Nothing prepared her for meeting the man of her dreams, literally. And spending a special night with him. But when she goes to work at her new job, Brandon, the hot guy in Cancun,is her boss. And what's even worse? He doesn't seem to remember her.
     I got hooked on the amnesia part, but it was not detailed to my liking. And it lacked a lot in the plot aspect. I felt like the romance, which is the hugest part in this book, advanced too fast for my liking. It was almost like insta-love, and everyone knows how much I hate that. Also,  I couldn't connect with Emma. She kept making such stupid decisions and hanging on her past for so long that it got annoying.
      But I gotta give a shout out to the author for the completely swoon-worthy Brandon. Although the book lacked in the plot and the character development, it was perfect in the steamy scenes. They advanced too fast, yes, but they were the perfect mix of hotness and sexiness! I loved that. The end was a bit of a shock. Like, I didn't expect the book to end at that point but it did. So, I am hoping and expecting a lot from the author in the second book. Hopefully, it will be much better.


  1. I'm glad you liked it and I understand how instant romance can be a killer. Hope the next book is to your liking :)

  2. I tend not to read new adult because the plots seem so similar but this one sounds okay. I hate instant love, so awful. Great review, though!

  3. This NA is new to me. I don't read a lot of them but I do like the premise despite the insta-love you mentioned. Thanks for sharing!
