Title: Forget You Not
A Reclusive Novel
Author: Harloe Rae
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 27, 2017
Destiny is bogus and fate is fake.
Everything happens for a reason?
I gave up on my fairy tale years ago.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not settling for less.
All my energy gets poured into a job I love rather than dead end relationships.
Men aren’t even a blip on my radar these days.
Who needs them?
Except to scratch the occasional itch, I’m not interested in anything they have to offer.
If so-called Cupid ever comes knocking on my door, I’ll be waiting with my flying pig because happily ever after doesn’t exist.
I’ve become a jaded disbeliever and my main reason just sauntered into the bar.
Rowen Sworr is the only arrow that pierced my heart, and dammit, he stuck.
His random reappearance is a complicated twist from that meddling matchmaker I didn’t see coming…
Forget You Not is the second standalone in the interconnected Reclusive Novel Series.

Lark shoots me a glare before asking, “What are you doing here?”
The venom in her voice is probably meant to scare me away but all I hear is come closer. I’m totally mesmerized.
“Hey, Sweetheart. I said you’d be seeing me soon. Figured I’d stop by and say hello in person.” I make sure to keep my tone calm but my skin inches with heat at the fire burning from her gaze.
“And I told you to leave me alone unless you’re ready to give me what I want.” She shifts her stare down to my groin while raising an expectant brow. “Is that what you’ve brought me?” She lifts her scorching eyes back to my face and seductively bites into her bottom lip.
Her sass is tantalizing but it’s the beauty underneath I’m truly after. “Sorry to disappoint you but that’s not why I’m here, Vix. I want to discuss some stuff, relating to us.”
“Vix? As in the vapor rub?”
An amused chuckle bounces up my throat. “Nah, short for Vixen.”
She seems to mull it over with a slight tilt of her head. “I suppose that’s fitting, though you don’t need to be handing out nicknames. Tell me, what could we possibly have to talk about?”
“No idle chit-chat first? I’m hoping we can get to know each other. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you since the other night and this sexy librarian look you’re rocking is hot as hell, but it’s more than that. Are you willing to hear me out? Maybe make an exception for me?”
A frustrated sigh answers my question. “I don’t have the patience for this, Rowen. I’m very busy here and you’re wasting my time.”
I lean against the door, trying to show I’m not ready to leave quite yet. “Answer me this. Where did you work when you were younger? Let’s say seven years ago?”
Lark glances away before shuffling some papers into piles. Her fidgeting makes me smile because now I’m certain she remembers just fine. A barely-there blush blooms on her cheeks while she continues avoiding my question. I wait her out and soon enough she graces me with a response.
“I don’t see how that’s any of your business.” Her deflection causes me to edge forward a bit, as though we need to be closer. She speaks to the depths of my soul, no matter if she gives me sass or softness.
“I’m trying here, Vix. Want to help me out? Did you work at Brack’s Box during the summer of 2010? Maybe a guy stopped in on a random July afternoon and stumbled over his words in your stunning presence. Do you remember that?”
Lark is still avoiding eye contact but I hear her whispered yes as if she shouted it across the room.
If you are into soulmates, humor, scorching hot chemistry and a second chance romance all tied up with very little drama than this book is for you. Forget You Not was a fast paced read that sucked me right in at every page. I loved the comradery and banter with the side characters and their friendship.
Lark and Rowen haven’t seen each other since one beautiful and promising night. Right from the start we see how these two are meant to be together but Rowen has a promise to fulfill and has to walk away. Now I know everyone is like, really but his reasons are good and for all the years that he’s been away, Lark is the one that consumes his every thought. Now he’s back home and walks right into the bar his little Vixen is at and his dreams are about to come true, not!
This story was so great. The chemistry and banter between Lark and Rowen was so much fun. Lark isn’t the same shy girl Rowen met, a broken heart will do that too. She’s interested in one thing, getting the goods and going their separate ways. Well Rowen isn’t going to let fate get away again.
This book had so many funny moments and equal amounts of alpha male to keep readers on their toes. This was a quick read one that was enjoyable, light and hot. I enjoyed the connection the characters had even when they were fighting with one another. I adored Lark and Rowen’s characters. They brought so much life to this story. Rowen is in for a fight and he knows that Lark is his soulmate and how high her walls are. He’s determined to march on them walls and bring them down. I absolutely adored this story and highly recommend it.
