A great second chance love story and wonderful conclusion to the Cloverleigh Farms series for Melanie Harlow!
In a series that features 5 daughters, you can’t help but really root for the fifth and final sister to get her happy ending, which is why I was excited to finally get my hands on Unforgettable.
And April may be the Sawyer sister most deserving of a Prince Charming and a happily-ever-after!
Unforgettable gives us the story of the last unwed Sawyer sister, April. April has been busy planning and overseeing weddings at Cloverleigh Farms. She’s also seen each of her sisters marry the loves of their lives, so she’s finally at a place to see if she can be open to finding her own happily ever after too.
I have to say that April’s character really impressed me. She has been carrying a heavy burden for many years that has influenced her ability to form serious, long-term relationships. Yet, she’s gotten therapy and has worked through her inner demons to get to a better place.
Her inner demon is closely tied with the brief relationship she had with Tyler Shaw back when they were in high school. Only now, 18 years later, Tyler is back in town.
Unlike April, Tyler isn’t looking for a relationship. In fact, he’s been trying to steer clear of everyone and anyone since his MLB baseball career imploded. Unfortunately, he has to return to his hometown for his sister’s wedding which ends up being an unexpected reconnection with April – the girl who once stole his glances.
I loved how April and Tyler rekindled their brief relationship. Even though Tyler is only in town for a short time, the two find that they once again easily connect and just let that chemistry and attraction take its course without overthinking or questioning. Despite how good it is between them for a second time, April and Tyler still want two different things.
I like how April doesn’t change course on what she wants even though Tyler doesn’t want the same things. She’s a confident woman and that really showed throughout the story.
Tyler on the other hand was a hot mess and he had the most growth to do in this book. It had been years since his career tanked but the man still had many issues to resolve around it to be able to move on with some sort of life. April was a good sounding board for him to be able to do this as was his old baseball coach.
I felt like his “ah-ha” moment however was a bit sudden and too spelled out for the reader once he realized the error of his ways. It was as if all the insight came to him in an instant but that’s OK because it got him to get his head out of his you know what.
Even though this was the final book to this series, it could definitely be read as a standalone and will be a great read for anyone who likes second chance romances, especially those where there is no animosity between the main characters. So refreshing!
Thank you to Melanie Harlow for this advanced reader copy! All opinions are my own.
