Review: Forget Me Not by Willow Winters

I fell in love with a boy a long time ago. 

I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could. 

Until I left him. 

I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster. 

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him. 

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true. 

But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all. 

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started. 

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is. 

A love story. Our love story.

The blurb caught my eye and I wanted to give this book a shot. Sadly it didn't work in my favor at all. The whole time reading  I felt like something was missing. The main characters each have a dark past that's connected but we didn't get much backstory. We are mainly focused on 20 years later and the healing process. I felt if there was more backstory from there past I would have been able to connect to the story and enjoyed it much better. I couldn't feel the connection with the characters either. Once I finished the story I saw that the prequel was in the back of the book. I wished it would have been in the front of the book and maybe I would have enjoyed it better. The story had a lot of potential but sadly it fell flat for me.
