Summary

Get ready to experience the heartbreakingly beautiful love story of Ollie and Reid in USA Today best-selling author Brooke Blaine's The Unforgettable Duet.  

Three sugars, two creamers.  

That’s how you took your coffee every morning at Joe’s Grab ’N Go. 

But you don’t remember that.  

You don’t remember anything.  

Anything, that is, except me....

That day...and the tragedy that catapulted us together.

Simply beautiful!

They saw each other every day. Watched each other, but never exchanged a single word. Until that day. The day when everything changed. And it all started with a broken coffee machine...

Paramedic Ollie has had a crush on Reid forever. He watches him (in a non-creepy stalker-ish way) every morning when they both buy their coffee. But he never really got up the courage to talk to him, that is until the coffee machine breaks down and he finds the man swearing at it. They strike up a conversation and when they part Ollie is feeling over the moon. Sadly it only lasts for a few minutes - until the next call on the radio comes in, informing them of an accident. An accident Reid was in and was now fighting for his life from.

Ollie, being Ollie can't get Reid out of his mind. He waits in the hospital, desperate for news about this man that he in reality doesn't even know. And when Reid’s family leaves for some food, he sees his chance to sneak in to see Reid with his own eyes. Little does he know that Reid wakes up, and with Ollies name on his lips. The only problem is; he's also missing the past ten years or so from his life...

Okay, so let me start out with that not a lot about this book or story is credible. You just have to accept it and move on, and simply enjoy the book for what it is. Entertainment. And a very sweet one at that. In fact, part from the very beginning where it was all up in the air, this book had this fun and hopeful feel to it. Ollie and Reid were playful, it was new and exciting, falling in love. I just gobbled it all up and had a happy smile doing it, well for the most part.

If I'm being honest here (and I think that might be the point of an honest review) I'm not completely sure what I think of Ollie and Reid as a couple in this book. On the one hand they were so sweet together, and I really enjoyed their interactions and all the feels. It was all new and exciting and shiny and pretty and fun. But on the other hand Reid was in his mind, only seventeen and the romance between him and Ollie developed way fast - especially thinking about that age gap.... so in the end I loved them together, at the same time it just didn't feel completely right.

I really enjoyed Charlie David's narration of this book. I will admit to being very worried in the beginning when he read the blurb of the story, because that whispering breathy narration would have driven me completely insane. Thankfully that was over quickly and my fears were laid to rest when the narration of the actual story began. Sure, it was a bit breathy at times, but I didn't mind it as much, I was so engrossed in the story, which is a credit to David in itself. I love it when narrators take me into the story, when everything else disappears, and he did that with this book. To the point where I was not a happy girl when it ended - and not only because of that ending either....

Forget Me Not is not a standalone book in any way shape or form. It ends with a major cliffhanger so make sure you have the next book ready when you finish this one, or you might just lose your mind.

heartbreaking and amazing storyline

As with all Brooke Blaines books, this boolheld my focus and my heart from start till finish (or to be continued). I knew the story was going to be hard and heartbreaking, when going in, but it still got me anyway. I so wasnt prepared for the storyline and the way you feel the key characters joys and struggels and heart breaking feelings.
Loved the book all the way.
It toke me a coupple of chapters to get with the narrator, but his voice quickly matched the pictures in my head and I ended up liking it a lot. cant wait to start the next book.

Awesome

RUN, RUN, RUN. DO not walk to get this book. Go. Don't wait.

Brooke has blown this one out of park. I was sucked in right from the get go. I'm having very difficult time with words about how much I loved these guys and their story

Ollie is a paramedic. He works long hours including taking on extra shifts so his friends can spend time with their family's. He is sweet and caring but a lot lonely..

Reid has held Ollie's attention for quite sometime. Reid suffers an injury but in sustaining same, he gains a friend in Ollie.

These two men develop a friendship like no other. They are kind, caring, supportive, and it's a pure pleasure watching them fall in love. I love Reid discovering who he really is and what he loves and I love Ollie there by his side supporting him through this.

This book made me laugh and cry. Ollie sure does have a great best friend in Mike too.

I can't wait for conclusion of their story...

Charlie David did a fantastic job. This was my first audible by him and won’t be my last

Unforgettable !!

If you listen to this story for the first time, just know that you won't be able to stop! Once you dive into Ollie and Reid's story, nothing else exists for a while. Brooke Blaine's amazing talent is once again shown here in this rollercoaster of emotions. It was so good to listen to Charlie David's voice reading this book. You can really feel all the characters' emotions and his voice is so soothing. The ending will be leaving you wanting more because Brooke is a tease like that ;) I'm already starting the second book from the Unforgettable Duet : Remember Me When.
Forget Me Not is a book I won't ever forget, that's for sure !

Heartbreakingly beautiful!

Oh my heart!! I loved this when I read the ebook and I love hearing the audible. It's such a heartbreaking story that still gives me all the feels. Charlie David has this sexy masculine tone that fits Ollie perfectly. You can hear all the emotions these characters are going through and its absolutely amazing.

I'm such a Brooke Blaine fan because her stories give you that genuine real love story quality while still taking you away into this imaginary world she's created with such sweet, caring, sexy and loving characters. Ollie and Reid are to sweet and loveable and Charlie David does absolutely amazing narrating this heartbreaking story.

Beautiful story

I got this audible from Brooke herself, so thank you again. I have read Brooke’s other books,and this was on my TBR list for while now. This story was beautiful I love how Ollie loved Reid. That cliffhanger was very surprising, so I will be going to listen to second book NOW! I want Ollie and Reid to have HEA.

Leans heavily on amnesia trope, not much substance

There's not much conflict here, aside from Reid's memory loss. I spoiled the (cliffhanger) ending by reading reviews, and I'm glad. If you're not into the amnesia trope, and you like more external conflict in your stories, skip this one. It doesn't just lean heavily on Amnesia, it doubles down. The narration is good but audio quality is uneven in parts (you can tell which parts were recorded separately and edited in) but not enough to irritate.

Part one: will break you

Just fair warning, this is a duet and should be treated as such. part one will keep you on the edge of your seat, build you up, and then shatter your heart. Its so good.

The Sweetest Guy Finds Love

I am so happy to see this book become available on audible and I love Charlie David. Great book and amazing narration, I can’t wait for the next part of the series. This is a really fun amnesia plot that continues into the next book.
