As promised for my Saturday, November 5th post, today I am reviewing Don’t You Forget About Me, book two in the Love on the Radio series, a contemporary romance.

Author: Naima Simone
Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: November 1, 2022

Whoever said be careful what you wish for had a serious gift for understatement.

Blurb:  As one of the world’s hugest musicians I’d seen and had it all. Sold out tours. Awards. Fame. Money. Women… And I’d almost lost it all. Epically.

Now I’m back home. A broken, burned out, desperate rock star…and a single father. I returned to give my son a family, stability. To figure out my life. But coming home meant seeing her.

The woman who was once my everything. Who made life in this too small town bearable. Who I loved with my whole heart…my whole body. But long held secrets forced me to leave nine years ago. Forced me to abandon her. And she’s never forgiven me.

Still…

I’ve never forgotten her or the heat between us that burned so hot we damn near went up in flames with it. And I want it again. And again. Even knowing the past will only tear us apart once more…

****

This is a second-chance romance full of heartbreak but hope.  Lennon is the daughter of a judge, a controlling and manipulative man with too much power, and he applies this power over his daughter.  He’s all for a romance between a man he’s handpicked and his assertive daughter Lennon, who’s no pushover, though.  She loves her father.  He’s all she has left after the loss of her mother, but she won’t let him control her life, especially when it comes to life.  At least she thinks so…

Then there is King, a man from the wrong side of the tracks.  He’s left Lennon behind to pursue fame and fortune, at least that’s what we are led to believe.

Imagine how Lennon feels when her blast from the blast, with all of his money and celebrity, blows back into town to set up a permanent home.  Yeah, she’s not happy at all.

I must say the plot was a great set-up for conflict.  Two lovers with a second chance at love, a domineering father determined to get his way, and his daughter who is ready to fight for what she wants—that’s if she can get past her hurt after being ditched by King, who was supposed to run off with her as a teenager so they could pursue their dreams together.

The chemistry between the duo leaps off the page.  The writing is top-notch, creating a great visual of the setting and emotion.  Even the dialogue is very inch Lennon and King.

It’s a fast-paced read that doesn’t let go of the reader until the climactic ending.  I highly recommend you give this a read.  I haven’t read the first book in the series, but that’s not required, because the author keeps the focus on Lennon and King.  Do yourself a favour and get a copy.

Have you read Don’t Forget About Me?  If so, do you agree with my review?  If you haven’t read the book, would you be willing to now?
