I am utterly and fantastically blown away by this book. Seriously, what is this sorcery?!?
I listened to the majority of the book, which was narrated amazingly by Anthony Linden, but did enjoy the ebook too when I just didn't have the chance to listen. I don't think I have ever listened to a dual POV book with only a male narrator. I've listened to several with only a female narrator, but this was definitely a first and I have to say I am impressed. Anthony Linden brought so much emotion and heart to the scenes and I was captivated by his performance. I honestly, inhaled this book. I haven't been consumed by a story and its characters like this in a while and I just couldn't bring myself to stop. From the very first page, I was sucked in and needed to know more. I even messaged a friend to gush and share my feelings because I just couldn't contain them.
Milly was an incredibly relatable heroine. Haven't we all lost ourselves or our way at some point in our lives? I loved her evolution through the story and how with each chapter, she regained a piece of herself. She didn't let her terrible ex Kevin define or destroy her. Milly is intelligent, loving, giving, and so fiercely loyal. I absolutely loved her and Dean. Her history with him broke my heart and it was game over for me the minute he came onto the scene.
I am an absolute sucker for second chance romances that feature childhood sweethearts and Dean was all kinds of swoony perfection! I could not get enough of him and part of what endeared him to me was that, just like Milly, he is not perfect. These two lost souls have been existing, but not truly living until they crash back into each others lives. I loved that from the start, he was 100% devoted to Milly and unwilling to let his second chance slip away. Add in his deliciously dirty mouth and I was a goner.
"Milly, this body, this soul, this love, it's mine. The only other children that will grow inside you are the ones that I put there. This. Is. Forever."
I also loved (and hated) the secondary characters just as much as Milly and Dean. Mrs. Orleans and Nicola had me feeling like I needed to slap someone, while Anthony, Mary, Addie, and Lilly had me wanting to grab everyone into a big hug. The story really came full circle at the end and I appreciated the kind of role reversal between Milly and Dean as far as guilt and blame was concerned regarding their parents. I could not have enjoyed this story more and though this is my first Dylan Allen book, it certainly won't be my last!

After reading Rise By Dylan Allen I have been counting down the days until Remember came out . I would check up on Dylan Allen pages weekly just to see if I could get updates on when I could get my hands on this book. When I was able to get an audiobook of this story I was thrilled and I Literally devoured it the minute it arrived on my audible app and It was fantastic!
In this book we follow Milly and Dean and these two used to date when they where in high school and where very serious , however what happened with both of there fathers caused them to be ripped apart. Now Milly is going through a divorce and trying to deal with all of the changes that will affect her and her son because of it . However as Milly is trying to her Event Planner business up and going, one of her biggest clients happen to be Dean and lets just say while there first meeting was not filled with all the 'Reunited & It Feels so good feels " you could just tell the minute there eyes connected every feeling they had towards each other was reignited . I loved Milly and Dean's story , it was sexy and filled with swoons but that wasn't just it , I was just amazed at how supportive that are of each other , these two go through so much in this book and through it all they had each other backs and I just loved that . I feel like now anytime I think of the word soulmates I am going to think of Milly and Dean these two where just perfect for each other. Besides the romance I loved seeing the personal journey both Milly went through ,her character growth was just amazing and in a lot of ways Milly becomes more alive , more vibrant as you turn ever page and I just loved that.We also got to dig deeper into what was going on with Milly's dad and what lead Dean's father to do what he did as well and let me tell you all this , there were many time where I would think to my self I know how this is going to play out ..I was wrong lol .. I was so wrong ... this story definitely went in direction that I didn't expect , there were moments when my jaw literally dropped this book. Remember was just amazing.
Remember is a sexy , addicting , fun , heartwarming story . I loved this audiobook and I NEED the next one!!. Dylan Allen if you are reading this and you would like to give me a copy of the next audiobook that would be amazing lol . I can without a doubt that this is one of my favorite stories of 2017 .If you love all these things in your audiobooks you should definitely get copy as soon as you can .
