“What the mind forgets, the heart remembers.”
Brandy Curtis is a strong and independent career woman who does not care for commitment. She prefers no strings-attached, one night stands because that’s all she can give with what little free time she has. This is the life she has chosen and the life she is used to.
However, everything changed when she met Ivo, a gorgeous doctor with irresistible charm. He was just supposed to be another hookup, but he quickly became so much more. The more nights they spent together, the more Brandy felt that life had given her something to live for.
Things seemed perfect… until a visit to the doctor sends her world crashing. The timing couldn’t be worse. As her heart gets closer to Ivo, her memories begin to fade.
Will Brandy be able to actually live her life with Ivo… or will she succumb to the condition that threatens to claim her forever?
Reading this story is quite an experience. It portrays the journey of what people with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones deal with it. As someone who had dealt with a person who has dementia before, I can relate to some of the scenes the characters were going through. And I commend the author because she obviously did her research well with regards to this topic. It helped me understand Alzheimer’s more.
I like how the story flowed, how the characters grew in time and even how realistic the events were like. I like that it ended the way that it did, too.
Although, the love scenes were a little over the top for me and sometimes, I feel like it took away the essence of the story. I’m not being a prude or anything but there are times I felt it’s not really necessary.
All in all, I enjoyed the story even if it’s also somewhat painful and heartbreaking read.
