Experience the heartbreakingly beautiful journey of Ollie & Reid in…Remember Me When, the emotional conclusion to The Unforgettable Duet, from Brooke Blaine is now LIVE
My worst nightmare and your greatest fear became a reality:
You don’t remember me.
You don’t remember the accident, or the weeks afterward.
You don’t remember my bed as your safe place,
or when, against all odds, you fell for me.
You remember me only as the casual acquaintance you saw as you grabbed your daily coffee.
Three sugars, two creamers.
Perhaps an acquaintance is all I’ll ever be to you now.
Maybe I can shoulder the heartbreak and the loss of you, if it means you’ll be happy.
You remember me when.
Remember Me When is the second and final book in The Unforgettable Duet and should only be read following Forget Me Not.

If Ollie could give his truths to Reid, I feel like these would be some of them:
-Remember me when…I pulled you out of your car.
-Remember me when…we formed a friendship that helped to heal your scars.
-Remember me when…we longed to experience EVERYTHING with each other.
-Remember me when…I became vital to your life and happiness.
-Remember Me When and Then Come Back to Me because my life will never be whole until you realize just how much we’re meant to be together.
At the end of Forget Me Not, like most readers, I was gutted by the circumstances that Reid and Oliver found themselves in and I truly didn’t know if they would be able to recapture what was unwillingly taken away from them, especially given Reid’s family and their understanding of who Reid is/was before the accident.
My heart bled for Ollie and the reality that his time with Reid seemed to be over before it ever really got started. I have no idea how he dealt with going from being one of the most essential people to Reid to becoming a practical stranger due to Reid’s lost memories. I swear Ollie should be sainted for what he endured at the beginning of Remember Me When because he handled Reid’s memory loss, Reid’s frustrations, and Reid’s off-kilter moments with grace and patience, which not many men would be able to do, especially given how much Ollie still needs and wants the man who holds his heart.
Brooke Blaine didn’t make readers wait too long to find out if Reid and Ollie would find their way back to one another, and even though the second book in the duet is quite short, the way Blaine lays out the story line, offering both characters’ perspectives proves just how connected Reid and Ollie are even when Reid couldn’t remember how vital Ollie was/is to not only his life but his recovery as well.
Ollie took quite a few risks throughout Remember Me When and that’s a testament to the kind of man he is and the depth of his feelings for Reid; revealing the truth could have done way more harm than good, but Ollie understood what was at stake and he refused to bury the reality of who Reid is to him and what kind of life they shared.
Blaine allowed Reid’s memories to gain clarity at the perfect pace; his recollections had been toyed with due to the surgery, making it difficult to ascertain what is real versus only a dream. Ollie’s presence was always there in the back of Reid’s mind; he just needed to follow his own course of healing and realize the reasons why he found comfort in this big burly guy who somehow infiltrated his life and made him whole when his body was so broken.
The conclusion to Ollie and Reid’s story was everything I wanted and needed it to be. I knew that they would struggle and that Reid would need to do quite a bit of soul searching to realize why Ollie became his person, but I also knew that with the kind of connection these two shared, almost instantly, that it would only be a matter of time before Reid would realize exactly where he belongs and who he belongs with, now and forever.
