review Love Remember Me

Couldn t get thru the beginning It reads like a story I m already 100 pages in and so I know what s going on but I m in the beginning and don t know at all 35 stars Purely because this book held my interest from the start and kept me up for hours past my bedtime Heroine Louisa was abused both physically and emotionally though out the book and unfortunately ended up with a cad of a hero who coldly used her and openly cheated on multiple occasions with different women If heroine didn t use her reproductive organs instead of her brains and made Hero suffer and grovel for at leat 100 pages I could have given it 4 stars book Sorry but I love ou at the end was just not enough I felt like she deserved much much Is a disturbing love story I liked it but I couldn t uite understand how this girl went through all that in real life she would ve gone insane This book is THE worst love story that I ve ever read The man whore hero in this book will make the Rosemary Roger s Steve the hero from Sweet Savage Love look tame in comparison The walking sex machine anti hero pretty much sleeps with any womangirl through out the whole book including the heroine He humps some girl during the day for the sake of spying but he desires her too then sleeps with the heroine on the same night he does it while smelling of other women too how sanitary Heroines knows this and The Defense (Eddie Flynn yet like any decent bodice ripper doormat from the 80s she puts up with it She sheds a tear or two when she smells the other women on him but does nothingAww poor girl rolls eyesHeroine is a victim of incest and believe it or not the first 100pages of this book great She appeared to be a strong intelligent and all things I wanted to see in a heroine However when she meets that man whore she turns into a wet rag This bodice ripper had rapes a cheating heroou pretty much become numb after awhile he screws around so much kidnappings and she gets the stuffin knocked out of her a couple of times Can ou tell how much I despise this book This is a story that had a lot of potential but the author took a bit too long to get the story in gear in the beginning and then shifted it into neutral for too long in the middle It s not a good sig. Wherever the beautiful Louisa Boyd traveled across the blue ice cold eastern seas or the gold sun fired western mountains she could never truly leave the passions and madn.

N when the plot starts showing itself at page 200 However that it held my interest for that long says something about it There were uite a few fresh elements that I had not et encountered in the old skool stuff and so I kept reading I m glad I persevered but when I finished the book and despite a satisfying ending I knew it could have been so much betterThe story begins by dropping the reader right into events Louisa Boyd is in seclusion in San Diego waiting to have a baby There are references to past events aplenty so much so that I felt I should know what was going on and wasted a bunch of time researching if this was a seuel Not the case We then have about 160 pages of backstory about Louisa and her two childhood chums Marshall Hudson and his illegitimate half brother Andrew Sutton It was often interesting but I wondered just where it was all leadingHeroines get abused all the time in the old skool rippers but Louisa Boyd is the first heroine I ve come across who is really and truly damaged She s been messed up since childhood Her mother was an alcoholic and insane her father was negligent and cold and than a little perverse When her mother died Louisa suffered Harry Potter a Me Ka Pōhaku Akeakamai: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in Hawaiian years of sexual abuse by her father and Louisa s odd habit of lighting fires as a child when playing with her friends becomes a ritual of cleansing I never thought the column headed Heroines Pyromaniacs would ever have something in it Her father calls her a born whore and her own easily ignited desires make her feel like a tramp and loathsome creature She hits the bourbon when she s depressed and believes that her fate is pretty much mapped out because of her parentage and her own corrupt soulThe hero of the story Andrew Sutton also has a few demons of his own As aoung man he becomes a sailor on his father s shipping line and then jumps ship at the horrendous conditions changes his name to Aaron Sumner turns pirate and adventurer and is dedicated to bringing down his old man and those he s in cahoots with He loves and tragically loses a fair tavern wench called Juliet scarring his heart and causing no end of distrust and dismay for Louisa later on when they meet up again He s driven by hate and revenge and refuse. Ess born in the mists of her home the Louisiana bayous Nor could she leave its oung men who knew only the laws of desire and conuest men who in a French vineyard defended.

S to let himself be vulnerable ever againAndrew is also a dead ringer for his half brother Marshall also Louisa s lover and father of her child and he s enlisted by the American government to infiltrate a plot by Marshall s father among others to seize California as an independent republic and funnel arms and money to the South in the coming conflict Because Marshall and Louisa are a couple Andrew and Louisa have to feign being a couple themselves something they don t need to fake very long They fall into bed together uite readily since she looks at him and sees Marshall and he s always had a hankering for his old playmateSo they go to Monterey to the den of the conspiracy but once there that part of the plot took a back seat to the constant bickering and make up sex between Louisa and Andrew While the author did what I thought was a good job of creating these two characters the motions they went through were conventional and repetitive for far too long well over 100 pages and perhaps even 200 and change The story ground to a halt as Louisa and Andrew kept going back and forth with Louisa being the annoying of the two There was a fine cast of secondary characters namely the Machiavellian head of the conspiracy Peter Melville but the author didn t flesh them out or give them much to doAbout 150 pages from the end the plot once again picked up and it ended all very satisfactorily with the couple reuniting and the fresh twist of justice not entirely being served one I didn t mind since in real life powerful bad guys often escape Hollywood s Clich d Justice System Still the huge sag in the middle really brought the book down as a whole A pity since the concept of a rogue California on the eve of the Civil War is awesome story material I just wish the author had done with itIn the end I think the book suffered from the lopsided ratio of the elaborate backstory and psychological baggage suffered by both hero and heroine to the rather anemic plot It hasn t turned me off this author however I ve got another of her books coming in the mailThis book review has been provided by the No Book Left Behind Campaign A Bodice Ripper Readers Anonymous group initiative to review the un reviewed. Her innocence and in an American desert saved her life and the new born life of a child destined to be Louisa's triumphant gift of love to a brave man and a great contine.
