“CAN’T FORGET YOU was definitely a feel good romance…”
~ Under the Covers
If you’ve been following this series, you were probably waiting for this story just as much as I was. Jessica and Mark were in love in high school. He was the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks but she felt their love would conquer all. Until he disappeared and joined the military never to be heard of again. Now that Mark is back in town, they’ve acted as if they never happened but their love for each other was always like no other.
This book was the perfect small town, second chance story. The tentative way they interact with each other, the undeniable attraction and feelings that still simmer between them. I genuinely liked both characters individually and together. I may even go as far as saying this is my fave couple in the series. They have their own issues to deal with while also working on issues that keep that apart. They have to re-learn how to be together and while it’s not an immediate jump into where they left off, it felt very natural how things pick up and old feelings that were never forgotten resurface. The ease in which they are together was comforting and relatable.
Of course, we also get to re-visit with the previous characters in the series and I love how Ms. Lacey is able to incorporate that feeling of friendship in a way that just makes sense and isn’t forced. It was fun to see them show up throughout the story and seeing what they are up to now. And one of my faves in this one was the stray dog, Bear. I’m a sucker for an adorable pet and even more so when the hero is so reluctant to keeping him. Bear was just what Mark needed.
If you want a book that will leave you with a smile on your face from all the romantic goodness, then give this one a try. CAN’T FORGET YOU was definitely a feel good romance and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Lacey does next.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
