5 Stars

"Don't ever forget to remember how much I love you."

"Don't Forget to Remember Me" is a book that will take you through an emotional roller coaster full of angst, passion, and love.

"There is plenty of time for finding out about the past."

If you read the first book, "The Future of Our Past", then you know this book starts off in a heart-wrenching and stressful scene. I found it extremely hard to be able to put this book down. I really wanted to know if, when, and how, things would get better for Ryan and Julia!  During this book, they get put through the ringer big time!! Their relationship gets tested in even more ways!  

"Being near her and not having her... I'm in hell."

I really don't want to say much about what happened to them because other than it would ruin the book for you, it's basically what the story line is about.. but know that there are a lot of angsty scenes here!! Moments where you'll feel like you aren't-reading-fast enough

"You know nothing of our relationship or the feelings between us. She's mine and you'd do well to remember it."

"If Ryan was going to keep his distance, I could show him the meaning of the word."

"You'll never touch her while I have a breath left to prevent it."

"...when I close my eyes, she is all I fucking see."

The things Ryan and Julia went through...??? I'm telling you, what happened to them during this book, makes their "distance" problem from the first book, seem like a piece of cake.  But, I have to say, there were moments where both Julia and Ryan frustrated me.. at times, even pissed me off. Talk about stubborn characters!! Sheesh! But, overall, their relationship is one that will definitely stay with me. 

Once again, Kahlen Aymes did a wonderful job with those steamy scenes!!!.. completely beautiful and hot! 
The book was very well written and again included both POVs. *yay*
I liked the ending, so I'm curious to see where book three, "A Love Like This" takes us. 
I recommend this book! It's truly a stunning love story!!

" love me and I'm overwhelmed by how much I love you in return. I sometimes can't believe that a love like this even exists."
