Thank you to Melanie Harlow and the team at Social Butterfly PR for the advance reader copy of the latest standalone in the Cloverleigh Farm series, Unforgettable.
As this series comes to an end I cannot help but look back on how much I have adored the Sawyers sisters and their men. This is hands down Melanie’s best series yet and I am so grateful to it for bringing me to Melanie’s review team.
Check out the Goodreads synopsis below…
“Back then, I had it all.
Wicked fastball. Killer instinct. Cocky grin. Full package.
(And believe me, I knew how to score.)
My senior year, I was a first round draft pick with a two-million-dollar signing bonus. Before I could even legally buy myself a beer, I made my Major League debut.
Point is, I was invincible.
Until one day I wasn’t.
After tanking my career—during the World Series, no less—the last thing I want to do is return to my hometown, where every jerk in a ball cap has an opinion about what went wrong with my arm.
So when my sister drags me back to town for her wedding, I vow to get in and out of there as quickly as possible.
Then I run into April Sawyer.
In high school we were just friends, but I’d always wanted her, and I’d never forgotten her—the red hair, the incredible smile, the crazy, reckless thing we did in the back of my truck the night we said goodbye.
It’s been eighteen years, but one look at her and I feel like my old self again. I can still make her laugh, she can still take me down a notch, and when the chemistry between us explodes, it’s even hotter this time around—and I don’t want it to end.
But just when I think I’m ready to let go of the past and get back in the game, life throws me a curveball I never saw coming.
Don’t miss the final book in the Cloverleigh Farms series!“
Check out my more detailed thoughts below…
- Characters: April and Tyler are the main characters of this story. April is the second Sawyer daughter, the event planner at Cloverleigh. The defining moment of her past came to light in the last book as she opened up to Sylvia about it. This story really sees April taking great strides to deal with a chapter of her life she never truly closed. Tyler is suffering as well but for him, it really has to do with the end of his pro-baseball career. From the start of the novel, you may perceive him to be someone with anger issues instead as the novel progresses you realize he has spent too much of his life running from those who care for him and those he cares for.
- Setting: The Cloverleigh Farms series primarily takes place in a small town in Michigan. The farm itself is an inn, brewery, and event hosting place in the town and much of the story surrounds the place. I love the small-town setting as it lends itself to such wonderful scenes as girls setting up a lemonade stand and the cute encounter they have with Tyler.
- Romance: April and Tyler are a second chance romance eighteen years in the making. It was so wonderful to see them ease back into being charismatic with each other. The nature of the secret they held together made them the perfect confidants. They were two such people deserving at love but had never found it as they were meant to be together, and how serendipitous that they could be brought together in their thirties after it did not work out when they were eighteen.
I give Unforgettable five out of five stars.
