REVIEW: Forget Me Not by Julie Soto


I loved this debut from Julie Soto. Loved it. I loved the pairing--sunshiney Ama, our wedding planner, and grumpy florist, Elliot--and how Ama just pushes her way right into Elliot's space and his heart, I like the way their story is told from a series of chapters that feature now and then, from alternating perspectives, and I love that the good guys win in the end. 

Forget Me Not has all of the things I didn't know I was looking for and I found and if I had any complaint it would be about how quickly things resolve themselves when these two have been avoiding each other as much as they could. That being noted, it's not a total surprise that things do get resolved because a) this is a romance and b) the subtle looks, interventions, and seemingly irrational responses to each other spell out one thing: that they still love each other. This one took me by surprise, y'all. The cover didn't hint at the spiciness of their relationship and I had no idea I would adore every aspect of their story so much. 

I know there are a ton of romances being turned into movies and Netflix series, so I don't say this lightly: Forget Me Not would make a good movie; I could totally visualize it and think there's an audience for it. Grab this one and enjoy!

Ama Torres is an optimistic wedding planner who doesn’t believe in marriage. But weddings? They’re amazing. Elliot Bloom is a brooding florist who hates owning a flower shop…until a certain bright-eyed, donut-loving workaholic shows up at his door.

Once upon a time, they collaborated on events by day, and by night, Ama traced the intricate flower tattoos etched along his body. Then Ama shattered his heart and never spoke to Elliot again.    

Now they’re working on an event that could make or break both of their careers—except neither of them has gotten over what happened two years ago. Things are not helped by the two brides, who see the obvious chemistry between Ama and Elliot and are determined to set them up, not knowing their complicated history. But as the wedding takes on a life of its own, Ama and Elliot are about to discover that some things can survive a complete catastrophe . . . 

Smart and hilarious, 
Forget Me Not is about two people giving themselves—and love!—a second chance.
