Book Review: Forget You by Jennifer Echols

Rating: StarStarStarStar


There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four- year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. Feeling like her life is about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon. But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people— suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.



“I don’t think we should spend any more time together unless i have a chance with you.”


That’s how Echols described Brandon and it seemed fitting that i describe her book in the same manner. 🙂

Gosh, i am definitely having fangirl moments in this review. I’ve got dibs on Doug Fox!

Zoey (she looked like Uma Thurman) reminded me of Brittany from Perfect Chemistry (they wanted to preserve  their perfect-girl-daughter act), but i have to say the latter has more steel in her character than the former. I have nothing against Zoey (except maybe she doesn’t deserve Doug, lol), it just that her refusal to end her relationship with Brandon  so she can be with Doug is idiotic considering she and Brandon just hooked up! But i do love her cussing after the accident – it was funny!

Doug Doug Doug 🙂 How about you park with me, instead? *wink* I do like bad boys, more so if they admit their mistakes and make up for it. They are explanations, not excuses – he says, and i agree with him. His family issues are real enough and i like that the author didn’t delve too much on the drama of it. Doug, you are one swoon-worthy guy!

I hate Zoey’s dad. really, really hate him. Zoey should’ve crashed his benz when she had it.

The backseat scenes are hot and steamy! The author knows how to keep me going and panting after Doug. *huffs*

The story is simple but the characters are not and that makes the story interesting. Forget You is a quick read for me, and boy, did i ever read it again minutes just after finishing it. It was good!

“Or that I couldn’t stand to watch anything bad happen to you, because it was like it was happening to me too.Is that love?”His hand clasped my hand again and squeezed.
I swallowed. “It could be.”
