First in a tantalizing new trilogy about reigniting a forbidden desire from long ago…
As heiress to a media empire Alessandra Sinclair was raised to put family obligations first. But everything changes the night her first love walks back into her life and turns her whole world upside down. Haunted by the memories of a secret romance with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, she can't seem to get Hudson Chase out of her mind. Once again torn between two worlds, Allie must decide how much she’s willing to risk to have the love she’s always longed for.
Ten years is a long time to wait, but billionaire Hudson Chase didn’t become CEO of one of the country’s fastest growing companies by giving up on what he wants. Now that he’s got Allie in his sights again, he’s determined to make her regret breaking his heart. And this time, he’s going to make damn sure he’s not so easy to forget.
I have to begin by saying that I liked Remind Me by Ann Marie Walker and Amy Rogers. I enjoyed reading about Alessandra (Allie) Sinclair the prim and proper heiress to her family’s media empire and Hudson Chase who was once just the kid from around the way, who clearly wouldn’t fit in with the Jones’, but is now the king of his own universe as a billionaire tycoon. Their story of their teenage love affair was cute and endearing and it was apparent that Hudson would have done anything to make Allie happy had she given him the chance… well that is if he had the means to do so…and if she hadn’t thrown him shade when her parents were present.
I like the storyline and how they ended up crossing paths again and the instant spark that they both felt when they were reunited. These two had chemistry that fogged up my kindle screen and were humping like rabbits once they finally decided to give zero effes about everything outside of the two of them, like Hudson’s play thang Sofia and Allie’s temperamental fiancé, Julian (that dude is cray) and her parents (what an ending), as they focused on them and all the possibilities that could have and could be between them.
With all of the kink-foolery and the personality of these leading characters, there were a few things that I found annoying, like I get that Hudson has money and all, but, gawd, do we have to know the label or brand of everything. Sure, I get it, ole dude is loaded, but a fridge is a fridge is a fridge, of course he would have a Sub-zero, especially since he is a billionaire. From his cars to his expensive coffee maker that he didn’t even know how to use, I was over the product placement.
I digress. Overall, I would rate this read with 3.75-stars. Why? Because of all the product placement and although this read will intrigue early on, it also seemed a bit disjointed in the beginning. However, that did not go on for too long and as a result, I am anxious to start reading book two Release Me. And that ending though…? For that alone, I would recommend that you skip on over and read Remind Me by Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers of their debut series, Chasing Fire.
