    At times I despair at the lack of romance and true love in the IR genre Too often the sex in a story dominates and completely buries a potentially interesting story beneath the heaving bosoms bulging muscles and sweaty bodies of lovers caught under the spell of instant attraction Don't get me wrong sex in a book is a good thing But I read romance books to get caught up in a story of love that's sometimes lost sometimes found but that ultimately endures That said I want to express how pleased I was as I read Remember Me by Michelle N Onuorah This folks was a story about love The love a family that lost one of its own only to find her again Unfortunately the woman that comes home is not as she once wasThe Tyverson's are a loving family with a strong foundation of faith Kristen has an award winning career as a journalist and often travels to dangerous locations as a part of reporting the news Mark is a self employed man who supports his wife's career Between the two of them they are raising three children two girls and one son On Kristen's latest assignment a terrorist attack has the world assuming her death When she is discovered alive some weeks after her assumed death she returns home to her family Unfortunately there's a problem Kristen believes that her only family is her mother and she doesn't remember the family that she left behind She only remembers her life as it was earlier before meeting Mark or becoming a journalistic success The story examines the impact that amnesia has on Kristen and the family as a whole It also takes the reader along for their journey toward reestablishing and rediscovering the love that memory has lostThere are so many reasons why I enjoyed this book The struggle the Tyverson's go through to become a family again was very well described Each character was well drawn and easily identifiable I felt for Kristen Imagine waking up certain that you are a young woman at the very start of your career only to discover that you have children a husband and that you've lost a beloved parent years before I felt for her children Their mother promised to come home and although she eventually physically returned it wasn't as the same person who left Most of all I felt for Mark What a beautifully written man I fell in love with this character Yes he has flaws he's human after all but his devotion and love for his wife will touch your heart deeply He's just a man who loves his wife and his children yet he's faced with the real possibility that his wife as he knew her would never come back His emotions heck all of the emotions in this book are so elouently written that you can't help but become invested Remember Me is a wonderful book that will tug on your heart It's not not wildly sexual or filled with over the top angst or manufactured drama It is about love It is about faith It is about the power of both love and faith I suggest this book to readers who want something than overheated lust from their romance Keep writing Ms Onuorah I can't wait to see what you release nextI was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest reviewRead of my reviews at Romance Between the Covers

    I absolutely loved it At first I wasn't sure because the main characters pray as a family and shame on me I just couldn't fathom how family prayer could factor into a romance novel That said if the romance is well written it does have a place It was a clean romance where the story took place between a man and his wife that I'd recommend to anyone looking to read a romance on the sweeter less erotic side with a little faith mixed in I also found reading about a heroine with amnesia to be uniue twist Remember Me sets a high standard for romance writers in my opinion I'm looking forward to reading from Michelle N Onuorah I'm so glad I already have a copy of Type N available This was a real treat

    same review left on First I would like to thank Ms Onuorah for entrusting me with her words Second I was given a copy for an honest review so here goes This is my second experience reading an interracial romance novel with spiritualChristian overtones I did not like the first that shall remain nameless because of inconsistencies however Ms Onuorah's Remember Me attempts was a better reading excursion meaning that I did not flounce her storyLet's be clear my review is subjective to me but I hope it will assist other readers in their buying decision or not and provide constructive criticism to the author or not as wellRemember Me was well written I enjoyed the premise about a couple's life disrupted by war it compelled me to stick with all 200 pages I loved the way the book began allowing me to see a typical day in the lives of the TyversonsEven though there were than a handful of incorrectly marked conversation tags that were really action tags and I guessed correctly that the author would use a cliche d virgin status in the story line these did not detract from the overall plot Because of Remember Me I am intrigued by this author's other works and would purchase one of her books Kudos to Ms Onuorah for the special way she handled the religious theme that runs throughout Remember Me It was done skill and care because the story did not become overly preachy but was in my opinion a realistic look at a family dealing with an unplanned upheaval I can only imagine the fine line an author has to walk while writing a romance novel with spiritual overtones These are the areas I would have liked exploration SPOILERS may be inadvertently shared 1 we learn Kristen has a step father who put her down verbally because it's hinted that he wanted her sexually Even though she shares a close relationship with her deceased mother Kristen never shared that information to her which seemed plausible with me However I was wondered why Kristen never harbored any residual issues with her mother or why the author never considered adding that emotional conflict as an additional way to let the reader into Kristen's head 2 the sex it was fade to black I am a woman near these fictional couple's ages a wife a mother and a Christian the sex and it's descriptions left much to be desired To me there was no chemistry One can fade to black yet still draw the reader into the very intimate experiences of the mates However I felt disconnected Additionally the couple's first sexual re connection after the accident occurred after an event with Mark's family which I felt in my opinion the timing was out of place3 Mark and his step mother was simply needed in my opinion He resolved his issues with his father but we're all left hanging when Mark's and his step mother's relationship is left wide open at a potentially emotional scene I asked myself why didn't the author take the plunge and explore the fall out from this scene And again it's my opinion that the events that happened afterward simply felt disjointedIt's my opinion that had #1 and #3 from above been included the reader would be introduced to another layer of conflict and see how the main characters resolved or not them In all Remember Me is well written with consistent characterizations and a compelling plot exhibiting the power of forgiveness redemption and love

    Get out your tissues and your devotionals for this one Remember Me is a well written tale centered around an interracial family in Atlanta The mother Kristen is a world famous news anchor for one of the most popular international news programs on a major network She is the first black woman to hold that position Her job reuires that she travel often to dangerous locations throughout the world Her latest assignment is to report the end of the war in Afghanistan Mark her husband is a very successful accountant who works out of their home A devout Christian he dotes on his wife and three kids Jessica the oldest Caleb the only boy and Kylie the sweet little girl He is the uintessential family man Their marriage is one dreams are made ofAs you can guess from the title of the book someone forgets Well duh Okay in all seriousness Kristen and her crew are targets of a bombing in a village in Afghanistan the day before she is supposed to come home Assumed dead the news is relayed to the family With no remains found Mark holds out hope for a while until he is convinced that she is dead They have a funeral and the family is grieving the loss of their wife and mother On the other side of the world Kristen is in a coma When she awakes she finds that she doesn’t remember much Luckily she is recognized by a family friend who is a doctor over there He brings her home to her family who she doesn’t know She has lost the last eleven years of her life It is a HUGE adjustment trying to figure out who these people are She knows logically the handsome man looking at her with love filled eyes is her husband but she can’t fathom marrying him He’s white after all and she had never been attracted to white men She knows that the three cherubs staring at her are her children but she can’t remember giving birth On top of all that her beloved mother has passed away and she must re live that grief This story uses the bible and references it often without overwhelming the reader and without being preachy 1 Corinthians 134 8 is the mainstay of the story The characters are very faith based and rely heavily on the word God even speaks to the man and wife as a guide We see the characters go through the process of getting their lives back on track Mark is as close to sainthood as a man can get He is so patient and caring and such a great father However he is not perfect as exhibited during a really bad fight where he loses his temper and says some hurtful things This family survives on love God and the unspeakable drive to be together There are some sex scenes between the couple eventually but they are written in such a way that you wouldn’t blush if the preacher saw them The author did a nice job of keeping it clean Now you all know I love a good steamy nasty sex scene but it was nice to take a walk down wholesome lane for a change of scenery The book was so good that I had to force myself to put it down to get a few hours of sleep before waking up and finishing it

    I try as much as possible to stay away from 'memory loss' books I liked this one though It was well done and the dialogues and interactions between Kristen and her family after the reunion were believable The fade to black scenes took away from the chemistry between Mark and KristenAlso Jack was hitting on her right? I wish that was explored further Let's really make a drama

    POSSIBLE SPOILERSRemember Me ah what a beautiful cover photo of interracial love Remember Me is a wonderfully written story of love loss patience strength endurance trust hope and belief It’s a well paced book that stays true to the subject matter and Christian family values to the end The passages and Bible references I feel are appropriately placed throughout the read and does not take away from the story but enhances the characters identity As in many religious themed books the intimacy between the couple especially interracial couples does not translate in the writing Here I have to say author Michelle N Onuorah did a fantastic job of showcasing the heartfelt intimacy between the interracial couple And so everyone understands when I say intimacy I am not talking about sex I am referring to the connection and rapport the couple has between one another; the attachment and familiarly one feels for another when you know you’re with the right person Remember Me is an inspirational Christian tale that left me in love not only the MCs Kristen and Mark Tyverson but the Tyverson children as well Kristen Tyverson is a career driven woman and has made great strides in her professional career Just in her thirties she has the coveted position of being the first and only African American World News anchor for ABC and is recognized as a celebrity in the community On the personal side she has a wonderful husband and three children who love and adore her Keeping both her career and personal life balanced is her Christian faith During a reporting assignment in Afghanistan the vehicle Kristen was riding in exploded No survivors were named Months later it was discovered she was not only alive but had amnesia which claimed 11 years of her memories An uphill battle of feelings of not belonging and fitting in prove difficult for Kristen and her family upon her return A reoccurring emotion for Kristen is the constant idea of who she thought she was compared to the woman she feels everyone else sees her as Other emotional issues Kristen was working on prior to the accident have since resurfaced making recovery even difficult Mark Tyverson lovingly steps up as a single parent to their three children His silent strength is displayed as he leads his family into everyday chores cooking school work and bedtime rituals while his wife wrestles to figure out her place in her home Mark also shields the children from the harsh reality that Kristen feels no motherly connection to their three children after her return Mark expertly keeps his fragile family together with patience love and faith He is determined to keep his family together and to show Kristen although she does not remember their union they are meant to be together What I love about this story is that it feels realistic I can see any family who has a love one that travels for work in a situation like this There are many great and passionate moments in this book I was teary eyed when Kristen returned home not to recognize her children and the devastated looks on the children faces”Where is my family?

    I've had Type N on my shelf for some time and now I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner because this book was a gem to read I had a hard time putting it down and was so disappointed every time I had to go do something That's a great sign for a book making my keeper shelf and this one has earned it The strength of Remember Me lies in the charactersI love the way Ms Onuorah gives each character their own personality which bounces off each other so smoothly The Tyverson's were such an adorable family The kids came across precocious yet respectful and never annoying I enjoyed seeing them come together to help Kristen through her recovery I also loved how awesome Mark was and how tender patient and supportive he was of his wife He reminded me of my own husband and I often found myself reading and stepping into Kristen's situation to empathize with her Her journey back to her family was one that had me cheering and sometimes I even wondered if she'd get her full memory back I loved that the story was inspirational and the subject of faith and God fit right into the healing process I hesitate to call this a mere romance because it was so much than a romance story It's a story about falling in love again finding out what really matters in life and learning to trust There were a couple of great side stories the author dealt with regarding Caleb reacting to his mother's return how it affects his schooling and also another story about the death of Mark's mother and the rift between his father that were dealt with in an engaging manner The characters all felt like living and breathing human beings and a family I wouldn't mind knowing in real lifeThe one criticism I have is the narrative style which was slightly confusing due to the head hopping POV and omniscient perspective The characters and writing were strong enough to suck me in each time and after a while I embraced it as a style choice from the authorI appreciated the fact that the author didn't spend too much time on Kristen's life before she went to Afghanistan It gave this reader a chance to go on the Tyverson's journey back to what life was like before Kristen left I was cheering for Kristen and many times wondered where the story may take me Some readers may find the course of actions predictable but those wanting a comforting inspiring and uplifting read will devour Rememer Me and find themselves revisiting the Tyverson's journey in the future once again
