Review: At the Risk of Forgetting by A.M. Wilson
Cami has come a long way from the scared girl who left home at sixteen and pregnant. With hard work and determination, she’s built her daughter a dream life in Arrow Creek, West Virginia. As a single mom, career paramedic, and a homeowner, she doesn’t have time to entertain love. Or men. Or sex. Definitely forget about dating.
Fast forward fourteen years, she stumbles upon her childhood best friend and love, Lawrence ‘Law’ Briggs, at the local coffee shop. A painful confrontation ensues and challenges her carefully constructed reality. Her strength wavers with Law’s reappearance as half-truths are revealed and memories flood through the barrier. Each encounter uncovers the remnants of their deep feelings, but the pain and guilt between them leads Cami to believe they could never work through their past. Dark secrets hold them apart. The deepest betrayal imaginable.
Her daughter was a gift she'd never regret, even if it meant she lost him forever. The answer seems simple, but it’s not. Years of hurt and suffering can’t hide that Law still loves her, but is that love enough?
*** 3 Star Review ***
I seem to be reading a lot of second chance romances lately. Each and every one of them are unique in their own way. This book is definitely not what I had expected.
Secrets will always rip people apart. That is what this book is about. Secrets. Secrets that ripped a teenage couple apart and then continues to rip them apart once they bump into one another years later.
This story was a very easy read. A few things shocked me, even though I had figured them out eventually. The back and forth tug-of-war these two have kept me reading all of the way until the end.
If you are looking for an easy, semi-emotional read, this book is definitely right up your alley!
