Reminders of Him


Reminders Of Him by Colleen Hoover

Narrators: Brittany Pressley, Ryan West

A troubled young mother yearns for a shot at redemption in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story from #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

This was the the second book by this author I’ve read and I loved it even more than the first. Like Regretting You, my emotions were all over the place, only more so. I started out feeling curious, then hopeful, then sad, then went back and forth between feeling hopeful and hopeless, happy and sad, all the time excited to see what was going to happen next. From beginning to end I didn’t want to stop listening but work, sleep, etc. kept getting in my way.

I loved all of the characters, except for a few times I wanted to shake two of the secondary ones, but I did know why they felt that way. I’m not sure I would have felt/acted differently if I was in their shoes. Keena and Ledger were great characters and I was excited to see where this book went.

This was such a good story and I won’t wait as long to read Hoover again.

Both of the narrators did a great job, but some of Keena’s sentences were missing the first word or syllable(s) which was a slight bit annoying. Still, I loved the book!

Just so you know, there are a few explicit scenes in the book, but for those of us who don’t want to hear/read those parts, just fast forward through them.
