This is the love story of Danny and Max.
In the beginning, the two started off as friends, then roommates, until….it suddenly became something more. The book mainly illustrates the love’s journey.
Throughout the novel, the reader gets acquainted with the characters both as individuals and as a couple. Max has always pined for Danny, adoring her beneath the thin veil of friendship, but she is too preoccupied with some long-distance relationship to even notice.
Max was such a lovable dork who loved sci-fi movies and playing video games. He was smart, funny, sensitive, and hot. And who could resist his fumbling charm? Yep, the bumbling was definitely cute.
The best part about Danny and Max was their deep friendship. They’ve seen each other through the good, the bad, and the ugly; they’ve been friends first and foremost, and they know every little thing about each other. When two people start off as friends, those are really the best kinds of relationships.
Written in a sequence of 12-month period, story had a rich blend of drama and heart. It was like When Harry Met Sally mixed with a soap opera. I mean, there was amnesia involved, and amnesia was the symbol of the title—one is wanting to remember and the other is trying to forget. Yep, the two definitely have a long, bumpy road with a forgotten memory and a fabricated lie; yet, it will be clear to everyone that Danny and Max belong together.
It’s delightfully witty and emotional; a fun, light read that audiences will enjoy. Another well-written work of Ms. Jacqueline!
