Everyone has a lucky number or a fave number, for Braxton and Jem their fave "lucky number was nineteen". They met on January 19th. It all started on that day, neighbors, friends and soul mate.They were best friend always together but their feeling was changing the more time the spend together the more their feeling was growing. Until the day their life was going to change. Jem can't remember her friends, family or her husband Braxton. He will do the imposible to get her Jem back. Jodi you did an extraordinary job with this story. This was my first book by you and I truly fall in love with the characters. It broke my heart many times while reading Jem story. She strong and independent the perfect match for Braxton he fought until the end to get his wife back. He decided to write letters to help Jem with her memory loss after her accident. Each letter has a different meaning, but when the love is stronger nothing is impossible to obtain what you want in life
Braxton is loving, caring , gentleman who love his wife with all his heart. Distance isn't imposible to show Jem how important she is for him
"I'm in love with you Braxton, Not just friend love. Love, love. I think I have been for years, I just didn’t know it. When I heard Samantha say she was going to have sex with you, I honestly felt like I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t stand the thought of you being with anyone but me."
"What we had is far too beautiful to be forgotten. This is our story …
Love with your entire heart while you have the chance, because life is far too precious to waste on any uncertainty.
What we had was far too beautiful to be forgotten
This is absolutely the best book I have ever read. I knew I would love this book from the blurb alone but I had no idea how much this book would touch me, move me, and just fill me with so much warmth.
The love between Braxton and Jemma was such a slow burning love that started when he was 7 and she was 6. We get to see the story of their budding relationship through Braxton's eyes as he writes these letters to Jemma. She lost her memories from a car accident and this was Braxton's way of telling her the story of them for the past 19 years.
My heart went out to Braxton for not only having to deal with the fact that his wife has lost her memory but his father is battling Alzheimer's, he feels truly alone so many times and that just broke my heart. I felt bad for Jemma as well because she could see that her not remembering Braxton and their life together was hard on him.
This is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. I was hooked from the first page until the very end. Even then, I didn't want it to be over. Every time Braxton ended his letters to Jemma with "What we had was far too beautiful to be forgotten", I got chills. This is definitely one book that I wish I could experience for the first time all over again. I will absolutely be recommending this book to anyone that will listen.
This book had everything!
What would you do if you forgot everything in your life? Even your beloved? How would you continue through life?
Those are the questions that Jemma and Braxton have to find a way to answer.
This was the first book from Ms. Perry that I read; with that being said, I absolutely loved this book. The reader could feel the emotion that the author put into the story. I was devastated for Jemma and heartbroken for Braxton. Such a wonderful story to read.
I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Perry.
