“If you can’t remember it, was it ever real at all?”
“How do I fall out of love?”
Cash Bennett enlisted in the Marines the day his boyfriend married someone else, but military life failed to numb the pain. After he got out, he relied on casual sex and the adrenaline rush of pushing his limits to distract himself from the inescapable truth: He’d lost his heart the first time he laid eyes on Robbie Logan, and he’s never going to get it back.
“I want a divorce.”
An accident on Robin Logan’s eighteenth birthday changed his life. He lost his memory but gained a best friend, a woman whose dreams were stolen when their lives collided. At the urging of his homophobic father, Robin married her out of guilt. But now he’s free… and not at all sure he’s got the courage to go after what he’s never admitted to wanting. Or whether he even deserves it.
“I love you. I don’t know how to do anything else.”
Robin doesn’t remember what they once were to each other, and Cash can’t forget the way they’d been. Sometimes, though, life gives you a second chance to do it all over again…
5 out of 5 stars
I have been waiting for Cash's story ever since they first introduced him a couple of books ago. I definitely wasn't disappointed. I've said it before, but I swear Sierra Riley's books just keep getting better.
Cash was unbelievably sweet with Robin. I love how Sierra Riley included the old emails that Cash sent to Robbie at the beginning of some of the chapters. I really thought that added a lot to the story and showed that Cash never really got over Robin.
Robin still hasn't recovered fully from his head injury in a car accident. He still occasionally has speech issues and can't remember some of his past, including Cash. After his wife asks for a divorce and encourages him to stop hiding and live his life, he finally admits his feelings for Cash and asks him out.
These two had great chemistry together. I felt so bad for both of them at times: Cash for loving Robbie so deeply but trying to be respectful of his marriage, and Robbie for struggling to remember the past and dealing with his homophobic father. I loved the moments when Robbie would remember a moment from his and Cash's past.
I can't wait to read the next one in the series, Beck and Liam's story. I was hoping they were going to run into each other in this one but they hadn't yet. All of the books in this series are connected and you see past characters in each one, but they can be read as stand alones. BUT I think you would get more enjoyment out of them if you read previous ones and "met" the other couples too.
