    Not so forgettable

    Office romance, particularly boss-assistant/boss-secretary romance, makes up most of the contemporary romances I own. The thrill of what could be stems from a secret desire and longing for the boss to see the assistant for man/woman they are behind the efficiency, the power suits, the endless patience. That moment of realization usually happens when the assistant is out of their element, sometimes at a Who's Who gala or caught by surprise at home in sweats and a t-shirt. Sophie's moment was the former. It was the first pivotal moment for her and for King. The attraction was undeniable but, for King, an inconvenience. He chose to ignore it, and her, and it cost him his assistant. The second pivotal moment happened when he suffered memory loss following an injury and Sophie agreed to care for him. The attraction is still there even if he doesn't remember the night they shared, but it's not enough for Sophie anymore. She wants it all, not just a taste. The ball is in King's court and the next swing he takes will redefine his priorities for good. King was a hard character to like. At the beginning, he was what I've come to expect in this type of story: an arrogant, selfish jerk who's resigned himself to some preconceived belief that he's undeserving of love and happiness that doesn't come with a contract attached to it. At the end, there was some change but they were hard for me to accept. The journey from one end of the spectrum to the other didn't seem to require alot from him yet demanded much from Sophie instead. Sophie was, at times, a bit of a pitiful character. For all that she gave to King, she didn't get as much in return yet she knew the score before she played. She knew his character, his preferences, his belief about himself. She rolled the dice and said goodbye to common sense and indulged. It was worth it, until King treated her no different than the other women. It was a great power move on her part to cut her losses but that small victory for me turned to ash when she went back to help him despite what he'd done. Forgiveness goes a long way in a relationship, but timing is everything. Wait too long, there is none to give. Ask for it too soon, emotions are too high to unconditionally offer it. It felt like there should have been more at this part of the story. More groveling, more attempts to prove worth, more times to say, "I'm not ready to see/talk to you yet", you know? I liked the story, yes, but I wished for more concerning King. Sophie was a beautiful opposite for him but he for me, wasn't a worthy man for her. He had everything in the palm of his hand, accessibility to anything he could want, except a little graciousness, thoughtfulness, and common sense. To see all three in greater quantities in him would have made this story far more enjoyable. I do hope he makes a cameo in the second story, as it is about his brother, and I hope to see a softer side of him there. Maybe the time between this novel and the next will make him more appealing to me. We shall see. 3.5* Received from publisher for an honest review

    ...the fight is worth the fall.

    LOVE. We've all been through it. At times we rue it. Yet when it's right we wouldn't change a thing. The perfect description of Forget You. Crespo used my own heart against me. King and Sophie are messy, dysfunctional, frustrating, emotional, yet realistically exceptional. Forget You takes a walk down memory lane with the heart as it's guide, to remind us why when it comes to love, the fight is worth the fall.

    4  Star Review of  Forget You (The Kingman Brothers #1) by Nina Crespo Nina Crespo is a new author to me. The premise of the story drew me in and it was a good read although to me it was more drama and angst that comedy which was what I was expecting. Honestly, I wasn’t too keen on King to begin with but he did slowly grow on me; he was a typically arrogant, at times egotistical businessmen, who felt he was entitled. Sophie I liked, although I was extremely frustrated by her acceptance of the treatment given to her by King, I mean enough is enough. The chemistry between Sophie and King is off the charts, even though he has suffered a traumatic brain injury and does not remember sleeping with his assistant Sophie prior to the accident. In my opinion there was room for further development of the characters and the story line whilst good, felt as though I was missing something. Having said that I will certainly read more from Nina Crespo as I enjoyed her style of writing.
