Review for Can't Forget by Colleen S. Myers - 5 out of 5!
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Is it better to be safe or loved?
Four months have passed since the E’mani destroyed the Earth and scooped up the remains. Elizabeth “Beta” Camden was one of those taken. With the help of their enemies, the Fost, she escapes and confronts her prior captors successfully. Though she knows she should remain vigilant toward the E’mani, she follows her heart instead and falls in love with Marin, the sexy Fost warrior.
She should have trusted her first instinct.
This time the E’mani don’t come in force–they slip in silently. And any hope Beta had of a peaceful life is lost. She leaves in the dead of night to find the E’mani stronghold and end them once and for all. But love is a tricky bitch. It takes a threat to Marin’s safety to make Beta realize, if she can’t forget her past, she won’t have a future.
MY REVIEW -
Love the uniqueness of this story, and this story is really developing with this installment in this series. Elizabeth's memories are still unclear about her time as a prisoner with vicious aliens, and as the memories begin to become more clear, Elizabeth knows one thing, and that is that she wants revenge for the torture they put her through and all of the humans they killed when they invaded Earth. Luckily Elizabeth has found a new home with a different group aliens, and has found love with Marin, but all isn't blissful when they don't agree on the course of action that should be taken to deal with the vicious aliens. When the evil aliens begin causing problems for Elizabeth, she knows she needs to take action, and there is also the little issue of Elizabeth's one-time lover, Finn, who still wants a chance with Elizabeth. Elizabeth has to deal with a lot in this book, and she showed strength. Elizabeth and Marin's relationship is really sweet, and I loved their connection, but I was disappointed in some of Marin's actions, and even some of Elizabeth's actions. The whole Zara thing really made me super ticked at Marin, and I can understand some of the Finn stuff, but I think some of it stepped over the line of appropriate, so I was getting a bit ticked at Elizabeth for that, but I'm much more peeved at Marin's actions. I still like him though, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Colleen S. Myers is going to develop this story. There's some adventure in this book that I really enjoyed, and I liked that we get to see a bit more of the world Colleen S. Myers has created. There's still a lot of story to be told, so I'm hoping the next book will be soon! I want it now!
