Never Forget Blog Tour

Review: The synopsis of Never Forget really caught my attention.  It sounded like it was going to be an intense and super angst-y story that I could just eat up.  I was really surprised though because the majority of Never Forget is intense and sweet.  Not too much angst like a lot of NA books have been giving us lately.  But, this change up was good.  It was nice to read about normal people, with normal problems.  Never Forget is a summer romance gone great.  It is a beautiful story about two individuals growing up and learning that when you love someone you have to trust them, and sometimes do things you don't want to in order to protect them.

Lexy's character was fun.  She seemed like the typical teenager who is on the brink of going to University.  At first she sulks having to go to Lilac Bay for the summer, but she slowly gets over it.  The only thing I didn't understand about Lexy was why she had her heart on lock down, other than that she was a completely likable and relatable character.  Alex is awesome.  Seriously this guy is wonderful.  Read Never Forget simply because Alex is a wonderful character.

I was amazed at how many kooky and completely adorable characters Emma created.  I loved Grammy.  She is a bad-ass, and I truly loved her character and shenanigans. Emma's brother was also another one that I adored.  I felt like there was some foreshadowing going on with his character, and I mean, I definitely would not complain if he was getting his own story sometime in the future.  That bad boy needs to be tamed. ;)  Oh, and I can't forget about Jen.  You know those friends that you have always had, talk to sporadically, but can still pick right up where you guys left off?  That's Jen, and she is hilariously fun.  Emma created a truly spectacular group of secondary characters that just leap off of the pages.

The plot of Never Forget was true Summer Romance story.   I did think it was funny how Alex eventually chips away at Lexi.  The ending is fast paced, I wasn't too caught off guard with what unfolded, but the way the characters handled the events surprised me... in a good way.

Overall, I think this is a solid story with some awesome characters.  Knowing how Emma can create these wonderful characters in her stories, I can't wait to see what she has next.  I recommend this one for lovers of: Romance, coming of age stories, fantastic characters, and great family dynamics.

4/5 Oh Yeah I liked it a lot!

A city girl.
A small town boy.
A summer they'll never forget.
Spending the summer at her Grammy's in Lilac Bay, Devon, is city girl Alexis 'Lexy' Edwards idea of hell. That is, until she reconnects with her childhood friend, Jen, and meets Alec Johnson.
Alec is the kind of guy Lexy knows she needs to stay away from. He's the village flirt, ridiculously hot and very dangerous to her self control. But there's a problem – she can't seem to keep him out, even though she knows he'll break her heart.
As Alec slowly strips away Lexy's defences and the two embark on a summer romance she never wanted, their feelings grow to more than either expected. But nothing lasts forever, and reality intrudes.
As her world is shaken to it's core, Lexy's self made prediction comes true when she discovers she's spent six weeks surrounded by secrets. Kept out by her family and the only guy she's ever trusted, she falls apart.
And when Grammy tells her that 'you might not end up where you wanted to be, but you'll always end up where you're meant to be,' she has to figure out if her meant to be is back home in London, or if it's been in Devon the whole time.

About Emma:
By day, Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to a terrible two year old. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of wine and writes books.
She likes to write about magic, kisses and whatever else she can fit into the story. Sarcastic, witty characters are a must. As are hot guys. She has two new series planned as well as her New Adult Romance, Never Forget, due February 2013. She likes to be busy - unless busy involves doing the dishes.
Her debut YA series, The Mauve Legacy, is an Apple iBooks Bestseller - and this makes Emma excited.
