This book is a love triangle. Also there are very few graphic flashbacks, in italics that can be skipped over.
Chloe has just turned 18 and is moving off to college for the steps in her life.
There is Drew who is 20, he's in a the local band, and also attends the same college as Chloe. It also happens his cousin Alexis is roommates with you guessed it, Chloe.
Then, last but not least we have Ryder. He's also in the band and Drew's roommate.
That's how this small circle starts.
To be totally honest, the last 25% is what saved the rating on this book. Just as it started to flow, it was over.
It just felt weird. There was no real connection with any of the characters. Drew and Chloe almost felt like a brother sister relationship, trying to push for more.
The writing also didn't flow well. Some parts just dragged on, and others had me shaking my head and laughing out of place.
It also felt like Chloe kinda used her past as a crutch, an excuse for situations she didn't want to deal with.
When the characters would switch the POV, it seemed more on the guys that the contractions were cut out. It made them sound more like robots than humans.
With the editing, if you're going to use a very popular band, it would help to use the right title to the song you have mentioned.
There was also over use of many of the same words clumped together. Things just didn't flow well.
Over all the story was there, just didn't feel any connection to it.
I think with some adjustments on the first half, this could definitely be a 5* read.
I wish the author the best of luck in her writing journey.

Now I'm not going to lie and I think it's mainly because of the books I do read, I thought this would be a ménage, had to look at the reviews to see that my dreams were dashed.
Both Drew and Ryder want Chloe, but the rub is their best friends. She starts to date Drew, but things get a little complicated when after being just friends, Chloe starts to like Ryder as more than a friend.
Now the big questions is who will she choose? I know, do you?
I really enjoyed Make Me Forget. It's tells the story of a girl who was hurt badly, but didn't let it stop her from finding love and she has two hunks to chose from. I would be in heaven. Like I said great read and it felt believable, now what surprised me was closer to the ending. I hate when the women is being a female dog for no reason.
Mainly, if you keep a huge secret from him and then you break up with him, you do not, I repeat do not have the right to make him feel bad because he moved on. That really pissed me off.
Other than that, excellent read!
Nessa's Book Reviews
"They have no idea what I'm like inside... dark, desolate, isolated, empty, used, and dirty."
This book really did have it all. Tortured characters, a love triangle, super secondary characters, and ALL the feels you can imagine! I was taken on this journey - catapulted into this book. Even though I did, it was very difficult to put it down - who else was going to let the dog out and make my kids' lunches for school? There is so much to this book so I'm just going to skim the top.
I'm simply in awe of Chloe Evans. She was undeniably strong and resilient. But Chloe had an unimaginable tragedy tear her family apart. She saw herself as anything but unwavering. As are all college students, Chloe was a work-in-progress. She set goals and having a boyfriend did not make the list. She's ready to move on and not look back. Seriously inspiring!
"I am no longer going to allow what happened define me. It's not who I am. It's not who I want to be."
In addition to Chloe's terrifically written character we have, not one, but two possible love interests! Now I'm not going to throw out any spoilers - so I'm not mentioning names. But wow! They were best-friends and totally opposite.
"How in the world am I going to keep my thoughts and feelings at bay when it is obvious my best friend is already developing feelings for the only girl who's ever made my pulse hum?"
One 'bad-boy' with tattoos who was arrogant and confident. And one 'pretty-boy' with a sweet, sexy voice. The guys are great to read. Each one having their idiosyncrasies and pros and cons. But who is best for Chloe? Or is there a best?
"He pushes my boundaries; encouraging me to do spontaneous things. He makes my heart pound out of control whenever he's near, sends my pulse racing. I've never met anyone like him"
There are many bumps in the book. And although I wanted to throw my kindle and could be seen screaming at the characters, each bump pulled me that much further. Giving me an unrelenting need to get the answers that, eventually, left me satisfied. One of the best parts of this book is that it's written in triple POV. Chloe and guys have their own voice at different times. It's a feat to get inside a man's mind so I particularly love when authors do that! Another thing I adore authors for - an epilogue! Yes, there's an epilogue. And yes, we get a HEA! :) Round of applause to Brandy Lynn whose debut Make Me Forget was amazing!
We are introduced to Chloe Evans as she is suffering from abuse that no child should ever have to go through. This opens a world for Chloe that she never wished to be a part of Guarded, hurt, and heartbroken, Chloe begins to pick up the pieces of her life on her 18th birthday. The day that she is no longer required to be taken care of by her foster mom who has loved, and cared for her for so many years. An emotional parting happens between the two, and she jets off to Radford College where she hopes to become a new person, and really focus on herself.
What she doesn't expect is the crazy triangle that occurs between herself, sweet Drew, and well-known bad boy, Ryder. We are first introduced to Drew as he is helping Chloe, and Alexis unpack their dorm room. Drew comes off as being nice, sweet, and understanding as he jokes with the girls, and helps them make themselves at home. Ryder comes into the picture like a whirlwind, and seems to just have a not so great influence on anybody.
Who does Chloe choose to steal her heart, and help her on her path to growing into a better person, and forgetting her past? That's one thing that I won't let out - it's a surprise, and it is a great one at that! I loved the chemistry between the characters. They were all really well written into Make Me Forget, and seemed to really get along throughout the novel. This was an emotional read, and I will be recommending it to friends.
I felt like Make Me Forget had a few situations that were unclear or unanswered. There were a few times that I also felt like things were being rushed in the book, and again, I can understand why, but it just left the whole unanswered questions thing there. I am terribly sorry that that was based off of a true story. That being said, it was written spectacularly well, and will leave readers wanting to continue reading Make Me Forget.
Every once in a while, I read a book that I can't put down...even if it pushes some of my buttons.
In Make Me Forget we meet Chloe Evans, a young woman who has suffered unspeakable acts at the hands of someone who is supposed to protect her. She has spent several years trying to heal and move on from her tragic youth. Chloe is beginning a new chapter in her life; not only is she leaving for college but she's just turned eighteen and is no longer a ward of the state.
Shortly after arriving at school she meets the two men who, along with her new roommate and bestie, help her come out of her shell. Chloe has an instant attraction to both Ryder and Drew, who just so happen to be band mates and best friends. These two men seem very different on the outside; Ryder, the typical bad boy womanizer and Drew, the sweet good guy. As we learn more about them we see how wonderful they are but which one will steal Chloe's heart?
I was really surprised to see that this book was inspired by true events and that this is Brandy Lynn's debut novel! She created deep characters, engaging dialogue, and a plot that keeps you turning pages.
I loved the chemistry between the characters. It was as though I felt the excitement that Chloe was experiencing. I had butterflies as she was learning more about these men and opening up.
Brandy Lynn also created wonderful side characters. I loved Chloe's foster mother, Melody, and their relationship. You can't forget about the rest of the band and Alexis (Chloe's roommate and best friend). I could totally see this being made into a series with a focus on each character.
My only problem with this book was that I felt there were a couple events/situations that were just added for the drama. They didn't really add anything to the story for me and seemed unnecessary. Now I know this is inspired by true events so perhaps that's why they were included. I know many people would disagree and say "the angstier the better" but I'm not one of those people, everyone is different.
Make Me Forget is a book that I had a difficult time "rating". I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was well written and engaging. I would like to give it 4 stars but, as I stated above, some of the situations and the characters reactions to the situations bothered me. I'm not going to go into detail because I don't want to spoil anything but they did take away from my personal enjoyment of the story. So with that being said, I gave Make Me Forget a 3.5 out of 5. To me, anything 3 and above is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend. I'm looking forward to seeing what Brandy Lynn has in store for us next!!
This book, however, has none of those. The heroine has been through really hard times. However, she was able to move past everything and trust in love. The hero was a very likeable character who had his own shortcomings but any reader will easily forgive him for those.
I wasn't very into the love triangle. From the start, the chemistry between the hero and the heroine was already very apparent. The new adult genre is not necessarily my favorite, but I'm glad I got to read this book because the author did a great job of creating characters who've had difficult lives but still sounded young and still had so much of their lives ahead of them. I also liked the way the book ended. I won't talk about the ending except only to say that it ended and got resolved the way that I wanted.
