The Italian husband she can’t remember…or resist!
After a terrible car crash, Brooke can’t remember her own name—much less her wedding day! Finding irresistible Lorenzo Tassini at her bedside—and a gold band on her finger—is shocking.
Honor-bound to care for his estranged wife, Lorenzo whisks her to his luxury Tuscan villa. But Brooke’s nothing like Lorenzo remembers! Her sweetness surprises him, as does the chemistry between them, blazing like never before. Stunned to discover her virginity, Lorenzo must uncover the secrets of the woman wearing his ring…
Earlier this week, I featured an excerpt from Lynne Graham’s novel, The Innocent’s Forgotten Wedding. Here’s my review.
With the state of the world as it is right now, sometimes you just need a nice, lower angst romance to distract you from reality for a few hours. The Innocent’s Forgotten Wedding is entertaining and engaging, with a delightful heroine and a leading man who’s biggest flaw is being too nice. This book had it all: money, intrigue, passion that grows throughout the book, and tension that builds and builds until the truth finally breaks through.
I really don’t want to spoil this book since you learn so much from the get go since you get both Brooke and Lorenzo’s points of views. Essentially, Brooke and Lorenzo are divorcing after a tumultuous marriage where they both want different things and have different lifestyles. Brooke is a fashion influencer and aspiring actress while Lorenzo is a banker. She loves to go out and travel while he’d prefer more low-key events and possibly starting a family. After an unfortunate car accident, Brooke lingers in a coma for several months while Lorenzo sits by her side out of a sense of loyalty and pity since Brooke doesn’t have any family that he knows of. But when Lorenzo’s ex-wife wakes up, she’s very different. Gone is the greedy, self-centered attention seeking woman he married. This woman doesn’t know who she is or that she’s even married to this handsome stranger, and Lorenzo can’t abandon her when she has so much recovering to do.
As Brooke struggles to learn who she was and to recover her memories, Lorenzo tries to not fall for her. But she’s so different it’s like she’s a completely different person, and he can’t help falling in love all over again. Will a romantic getaway to his villa in Italy make or break their burgeoning romance?
I give The Innocent’s Forgotten Wedding a four out of five. I really enjoyed this sweet and fast read, and it definitely held my interest. The secrets aren’t kept from the reading, and the big antagonist is the heroine’s amnesia, so many misunderstandings happen because of it. Lorenzo is a very likeable man: loyal, successful, sexy, and willing to stick by Brooke’s side no matter what. Brooke was not a very nice person in the beginning, but her character to Lorenzo after the accident is such a difference, and I really enjoyed her sweet, caring, and sometimes naive nature. I highly recommend this fast paced romance where strangers meet because of complex circumstances and fall in love.
