"Forget Me? Not" -- Straitlaced, by-the-book Amanda Baldwin is at loose ends. Her longtime fiance has just dumped her! What's Amanda to do? Easy ... let a charismatic, hunky beach guy -- namely Zach Castelli -- show her the wild side of life. Zach is irrepressible, unpredictable, and uncommitted -- he thinks marriage is a state of unhappily ever after. He just wants to help Amanda forget about her fiance, but after a few close encounters, will he want the job? And will Amanda approve the change?
This particular Duets installment is somewhat uneven, and not as good as other Duets I've read. "Mail" has charming characters and an appealing romance, but it seemed like Collins was trying to bring together too many elements. There's Rosie's job, Rosie's brothers, Ben's ex's, plus them, their romance, the parking situation ... too many pieces make the puzzle not quite fit. Unfortunately, Ben and Rosie's romance gets slighted. And I was upset about that, because Ben and Rosie are both wonderful, funny characters with a lot of life and verve, and I wanted to be able to believe in happily ever after for them. That said, the story is sweet, and I flew through it, laughing out loud as I went.
"Forget" is a good read, with very charming characters (especially Zach). I was distressed by Zach's insensitivity to the effects of his inability to commit, and I found his continued pursuit of Amanda a little disturbing. That said, this was a fun, interesting story with a lot going for it.
All in all, this was a fun book to read, but there are better Duets installments out there.
The first thing that is great is it is essentially two books for the same price, that are related in some way; but are completly different.
In "She's got mail" a budding journalist named Rosie meets a lawyer in her building named Ben after they both reserve the same parking space in the buildings lot. "She's got mail" is a fun read, at times a little too cheesy but what romance novel doesn't involve a bit of 'cheese'?
My favorite of the two, "Forget me? NOT" centers around a somewhat stuffy Amanda, who meets free spirit Zach after he overhears Amanda's cold fiancee Reed dumping her in a resteraunt and decides to say Hello.
All the of characters in this book are relatable from the spontaneous Zach and by the book Amanda to 'baby sister' syndrome suffering Rosie and Ben who is plagued by the presence of his exes in his office.
