Jared has fought hard to achieve something close to ‘normal’. Needing to get away from his well-meaning but suffocating family, he follows a message he wrote on a scrap of paper to a new city, hoping to find a missing piece of his past.
When Kyrone, a cocky pole dancer at the Heaven and Hell Club, saunters into the tattoo parlour Jared works in, his life is turned upside down again. A passionate one night stand turns into something unexpected for both men. But life is never simple as they work out if they can have a future beyond what has been forgotten.
Forgotten is an MM romance with hurt/comfort, a small age gap, and two men who need to learn to be true to themselves. It is the second book in the Heaven and Hell Club series and, whilst it can be read as a standalone, works better if read after Broken.
Colette Davison's Forgotten is a remarkable story that will stay with you long after the last words are read. Damn, seriously, this is one hell of a book! The story of Jared and Kyrone, you will be shocked by this gripping story.
Jared's a man with no memories. Suffering from amnesia, he has no connection to his past. If this man, and his determination to forge his own path in life, doesn't inspire you, I don't know what will. The way he rebuilds his life is impressive and absolutely amazing. And he does so all while suffering physically. It's hard to imagine experiencing everything Jared does, and reacting to it with such strength.
Kyrone's a man stuck living the life he promised to live, instead of the life he wants to live. His resolve to care for Jared, all while stuck on a path he doesn't want, is well explored. He's such a lovable character, fully grabbing onto my heart with is "adonis" tattoo. Ending up being so such more than the reader could have ever anticipated, I fell hard for this man.
The writing is phenomenal, full of two fascinating and complex characters. The author excels in illustrating that not just memories are lost to amnesia, but also feelings, bonds, and connections.
This book promises to take the reader on an emotional journey, full of highs and lows, smiles and tears. Through all the personal issues and family issues, this story has the reader emotionally connected throughout.
Forgotten is a fascinating and thought-provoking story. Colette Davison's Heaven and Hell Club series is an amazing series. But don't for one second think either book is an easy read. Both Forgotten, and book one, Broken, are seriously heart-wrenching and the connections between the books is staggering.
“I tell you what,” Kyrone said. “I’ll jump into the shower and then nip to the corner shop to get us something more substantial and healthier for breakfast. You can take a shower while I’m gone. How does that sound?”
Jared glanced at the pile of their clothes on the floor. He didn’t much fancy putting on dirty, slept-in clothes straight after a shower.
“I need to put some laundry on,” Kyrone said. “So I’ll throw your clothes in too.”
“What am I meant to wear in the meantime?”
“Nothing?” Kyrone asked hopefully. “I don’t mind if you wander around my flat naked.”
Jared laughed and shook his head.
“I’ve got a top you can wear.” Kyrone pursed his lips. “I’m pretty sure my underwear and jeans will swamp you, though.”
“Probably,” Jared agreed.
Kyrone extricated himself from beneath Jared and moved to an oversized chest of drawers. He rummaged through the drawers for a couple of minutes, giving Jared an unobstructed view of the man’s lean back and taut arse. With a small cheer, Kyrone pulled out a huge round-neck jumper with wide stripes in two contrasting shades of grey. It looked too big for Kyrone, let alone Jared.
Kyrone threw it across to him. “That should cover you up.”
“It still feels like you’re trying to hold me hostage for the afternoon,” Jared said in a teasing tone. “I can’t exactly go home, wearing nothing but an oversized jumper.”
Kyrone knelt on the bed, leaning forward onto his hands, his face close to Jared’s. “Do you want to go home?” he asked in a soft, low tone that made Jared shiver.
“Then I don’t see a problem, do you?”
