BOOK REVIEW: Reminders of Him
by Colleen Hoover
ABOUT THE BOOKS (from Amazon):
A troubled young mother yearns for a shot at redemption in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Colleen Hoover.
After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.
The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna’s life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them.
The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.

Okay, so I’ve been on the fence about Colleen Hoover for awhile. The first book of hers I read was Verity, which I loved. Then I read Regretting You and November 9, both of which were pretty cheesy and nowhere near as good as Verity. I had almost decided not to read any more of her books, but then I read Layla and absolutely loved it.
So, this summer I decided to try another one—Reminders of Him. Wow!
The main character, Kenna, makes a major mistake that lands her in prison…pregnant. She spends five years in prison and her baby is taken away from her immediately. As soon as she gets out, the first thing she wants to do is find her daughter. But no one from her life before the tragedy wants anything to do with her.
She meets a man and has an instant connection with him. She thinks he doesn’t know anything about her accident or her time in prison until she finds out who he really is.
This book is so emotional. It’s heart wrenching. I absolutely loved it.
