Unforgettable You Series by Beverley Kendall

Only for You/When In Paris by Beverley Kendall


3 ½ stars

I wanted to open this review by saying that this book is good, but the fact that the title of the series and the book itself will leaver readers confused.  When I first received this book for review a few months back it was titled When in Paris and the series was called Language of Love, which I love, and was first published December 2012.  The alternate cover and title is Only for You and the new series is called Unforgettable You, I have no idea when this new title, cover, and series was published leaving me so confused.  

Despite the confusion on the book and title, this book was pretty good.  The characters are interesting, but the back and forth, I love you I hate you got old.  I am more interested in knowing the story of Troy and April.  The leads in this book have an attraction from high school that neither realizes exist. And not starting college miles away from home they discover they are in the same class.  When sparks fly this couple can not deny the pull, but like in college the make ups and break ups are dramatic.  The sub characters are interesting as well and I can not wait to read more of this series.  


College freshman Olivia Montgomery is thrilled at the chance to start over, escape the rumors that plagued her in high school. And she can finally put her juvenile crush, Zachary Pearson, where he belongs--in her past. Then her unrequited love strolls into her French class, shattering Olivia's newfound peace, and the feelings she'd thought buried for good come rushing back. Now she can't shake her unwanted attraction to the one guy who can twist her stomach into knots with just a smile...but has never given her the time of day.

Zach's good looks may have always gotten him his pick of girls, but it's the star quarterback's skill on the football field that gives him his pick of the Big Ten colleges. To escape the crushing demands of his win-at-all-costs father, Zach opts for a private university in upstate New York where...his present and past collide. And the one girl he's always wanted but can't have--and a class trip to Paris--turn out to be the ultimate game changer that has him breaking every one of his rules.

Those Nights in Montreal/All Over You by Beverley Kendall

3 ½ Stars

Those Nights in Montreal/All Over You is the second installment of the Unforgettable You series. It is actually # 1.5 and after reading an author interview it was supposed to be a novella, but turned into a short novel after the connection the author had to this story.

I started out with this series and I liked it enough to follow it through the name change, which in my previous review I give a lot of flack for. This concept is very confusing for readers and especially readers like me who want to follow this series. Maybe by book three this series will get straightened out and I can find the rest of the series books with one title.

Ok now that my rant is over, I really liked this story. I loved Rebecca Winters from this moment Olivia spoke to her in the first book. Maybe it’s because we share a name and we both like to be called Becca, maybe not. I liked that she was a straight shooter, and calls it like she sees it. I had to read her story, when it was able to find the title due to the name change.

This duo was meant to be, I mean this couple had instant attraction in the previous book and the sparks flew in this one too. The chemistry was out of this world and the characters were interesting due to their history.

I enjoyed this series and hope that Troy and April’s book will be full of passion. I can not wait to read the next installment.


An ex is an ex for a reason

To Rebecca Winters, it's not just a saying or the title to a catchy tune, it's a rule she staunchly lives by. Especially since the break up with her ex. What's the point in trying to fix the "unfixable"? Besides, only a girl hell-bent on more heartbreak would go back to the guy who bailed on her when she needed him most. But saying no to Scott is becoming more difficult than surviving the breakup itself. And unfortunately for her, the kind of pressure he's exerting is making her rule all too easy to break.

Scott Carver has given up trying to get over his ex. He's still in love with her and their year apart has done nothing to change that. Yeah, he knows he screwed up. Just how royally, he wasn't aware of until now. So when Becca agrees to give him a second chance, he grabs on to it with both hands. But it's clear the only way things will ever truly be right between them is if he comes clean...about everything. He can only pray the truth doesn't send her running--for good this time.
