Review – ‘Hard to Forget’ by Rebecca Janet


I lost her five years ago, along with everything else. One second, I was driving my motorcycle and the next, I couldn’t remember my past. 
And then, as chance would have it, I saw her again. 
I didn’t know who she was, but I could feel it in my heart that she meant something to me. 
So, of course, I had to have her—she was the key to the past—the answer to so many questions. 
Not to mention, she was sexy as hell. 
But, Becky was playing hard to get. 
And I play for keeps. 

He broke my heart. 
From the start, I should have known he was too good to be true. I was just an average, plain Jane kind of girl, and he was the high school heartthrob. Of course, it would never work. 
And, it didn’t.
So, I learned to forget about him. 
But, of course, life’s a bitch and brought him right back. 
Will I be able to forget the past? Or will the future hold more heartbreak and deceit? 
I want to pray for forgiveness but I’ve long started to doubt that word.


Becky Castillo works in a crummy bar and knows she’ll probably be out of a job soon. As she’s fending off one of her usual perverted customers, a man she never expected to see again comes to her defense.
Charles Green doesn’t remember the sexy bartender, but feels an undeniable attraction to her. For the past five years, he’s lived with total amnesia, but his lack of a past and an identity didn’t stop him from creating a successful multi-million dollar company. Becky recognizes him, however, and hates him. He soon realizes she’s someone from his forgotten past, and he becomes obsessed with her.
Becky and Charlie are interesting characters. She’s so hurt and angry over the past that she can’t let it go, but she’s also unwillingly drawn to her ex-boyfriend. Even though Charlie is desperate to remember his past, he never really pushed the issue. I don’t understand why Charlie never asked Becky about his parents and family, about his childhood, and about the person he was before he lost his memory. I’m also confused as to why he never filed a background check on Becky since she wasn’t forthcoming with information. All he seemed to care about was figuring out why Becky hated him and also wanting to make amends for that.
I liked this story, but it could use a light edit. There are unanswered questions and loose ends, but it does have a satisfying HEA. It’s told in first POV, both Charles and Becky, and I followed along for the most part.
