Opal…doesn’t want to remember.

After years of applying for a botany fellowship, I’ve finally got an interview. The only downside is it’s in the one place I can’t go, New York, where my family died, and my memories were stolen. Going back would be a nightmare. 

I can’t remember anything from before waking up in the hospital, and I don’t want to.
My brain is messed up, and here comes this devastatingly sexy guy, Santiago, who tells me we used to be in love, that I was his everything, and that he’s gonna do all he can to help me get my memories back. All he wants is my happiness, but what the hell do I want? Is it Santiago, or is it the idea of a love I never knew? 
Santiago...won't ever forget.
I needed a vacation, badly. I’m on the outs with my family, and I’m struggling with my music. California sounds like a great way to ignore my problems. That is until I see her. 
Opal will always be the girl who got away. Actually, she’s the girl I fell in love with the summer after college then disappeared without a word. No calls. No texts. Nothing. I thought I was over her but being near her only brings up all the old feelings. 
She was always the one for me, now I’ve gotta convince her I’ve always been the one for her. Even if she refuses to remember.

Ceri is the author of quirky and sexy contemporary romance novels. She has a major weakness for sappy cuddle moments as much as hot and steamy sex scenes, and a penchant for writing snappy and sarcastic dialogue. She loves romance that isn't afraid to be awkward and uncouth, and thrives on flawed characters with big hearts. 
Ceri is a New York native living in California with her two cats, Mercy and Eugene Fitzherbert, who should be very thankful she didn't name him frying pan. She is a proud functioning introvert and lover of all things geeky. You can find her haunting the Twitter machine or posting pictures of her ridiculous cats on Instagram.

One summer - One epic romance - One fatal night
Time has passed for both Opal and Santiago but when fate brings them together once again
Santiago needs answers and closure from the woman who broken his heart 
Opal wants to remain in the dark. 
Can a once forgotten love be restructured or is it best to leave the past just that - the past
I liked the premises for this storyline the idea of a forgotten love and a second chance 
I enjoyed the characters Santiago had such a strong sense of family and love. Opal was happy living in the dark, at times I really really wanted to get into Opal's face and tell her to woman up, but honestly, how would I react to the loss? It kept me patient with her decisions at times even if I did not agree with them. I really liked the supporting cast. My understanding is they are the main characters in the previous books, though this is easily read as a standalone. 
The story is all about second chances and facing the fears that hold us back. There are a lot of touching moments that had me blurry eyed and an also a few that had me smiling. The storyline read a bit choppy at times which made it hard for me to connect on the level I prefer, but that is me. 
Overall it was a sweet romance 
The copy I read was comp.
