My biggest issue? How they treated Tomi. I get that he left his best friend bearing responsibility for something that wasn’t just on him. That was rough. But Tomi is clearly in pain about accepting who he is and how being in his hometown tears him apart. Josiah often seems smug and Shay begins to treat his brother like he no longer matters. Tomi dropped everything to come take care of his brother and Shay brushed it off. I lost respect for both of them for being insensitive to Tomi, especially Shay. Like everything else, Tomi’s struggles and pain were glossed over, except when Josiah was patronizing and Shay was downright mean. Even Tomi’s parents ignored Tomi’s feelings. I know the next book is Tomi’s and I already anticipate that Tomi will endure condescending behavior from Josiah and Shay when Tomi bares himself. I’m on the fence about reading Tomi’s story. I want him to have happiness, but I can’t forget how he was treated by his own brother. It was heartless.
This book opens up with Shay in the hospital and Josiah beside himself and you think that he really got hurt in that snow trial--but it's not November, it's May. Here we go into another of those town of Jasper roundelays and rodeos that make this series so special. It's May, Shay is seriously banged up, and he cannot remember anything that happened to him between November and May.
Oh boy, here we go, indeed.
This one also brings back into the fold Shay's older brother Tomi, who is 11 years older than him and was Josiah's best friend in high school before he suddenly fled Jasper to Vancouver and never returned, leaving the gossip hungry Jasperites clinging to many rumors. And none of those rumors were right.
How Josiah helps Shay discover what happened to cause his May accident and lose his memory and how Tomi gets involved and makes somewhat friends with the town sheriff Windsor will keep you busy and happy and looking for more when the end of this one comes along.
And you'd be right if you hypothesize where the next one is going.
Loved, Loved, Loved Josiah and Shay.... this was a fun read.
Contrary to other reviewers, I thought Forgetful Hearts was a much lighter read than the 2 previous books in this series.
We met Josiah in both Clashing Hearts & Confused Hearts where he struggled to complete sentences where we the reader, had to assume/interpret what he meant... this was fun :)
Shay, we met briefly in Confused Hearts, where he and Josiah got off on the wrong foot!!
Can I say enemies to lovers to enemies back to lovers??
Why, yes I can!! ..... as Nicky James threw an amnesia trope at us, so poor Shay had no recollection of his previous involvement with his sworn enemy, Josiah.
Readers who are familiar with Mrs James's other work would not realise how funny a person she is!!
This series, but in particular, this book is full of banter, snark, sass, witty comebacks, hilarious texting and butt convos.
I can't not mention a new favourite side character in a book - Jordie!!! He had me LOL so hard.
This book was fantastic!!! It's everything you need in a feel good book, with heaps of witticism and a bit of mystery thrown in.

Shay in the otherhand is flying blind. With a 6 month black hole in his memory and the last thing he remembers is them both snarking at each other.
He has clues that Josiah is being truthful, he sees their messages, and photos on both phones. That Josiah knows hes a picky eater, what hes able to eat and why.
Brilliantly written again, love Lady Mallorys predictions.
While this book is about Shay and Josiah, I desperately want to shake Tomi. Hes the one hurting himself and his family
Alors certes, le thème principal ne brille pas par son originalité et a été mainte fois traité, pourtant le passif des héros (et on se souvient comme c’était explosif entre eux) et leur personnalité font que l’on suit avec un plaisir non dissimulé l’évolution de leur relation.
Josiah est un personnage qui a vraiment pris de l’ampleur tout en se révélant et s’étoffant au fil des romans. Il est clairement devenu mon petit favori de la série ! J’ai adoré le détester le tome 1, je me suis doucement attachée à lui, avant de devenir accro à son petit tic de langage. C’est ainsi que dans "Heartful heart" Josiah nous laisse percevoir sa vulnérabilité mais aussi sa profonde gentillesse. Il est bien loin le gars si exaspérant et agaçant du 1er tome !
Shay donne du fil à retordre à notre journaliste, et la sadique en moi a bien apprécié ce retour de bâton. Mais pas de panique, si le casse-cou de Jasper est au départ très piquant et agressif envers Josiah, il se radoucira peu à peu… Le processus est d’ailleurs joliment décrit par l’autrice, c’est émouvant de voir Shay se tourner vers Josiah, lui accorder peu à peu sa confiance jusqu’à « sentir » ce petit quelque chose qui semble les unir. Et c’est toujours un régal d’assister aux secondes premières fois entre les héros.
Le seul point noir de l’histoire et bien, c’est Tomi…voilà un personnage que je n’ai pas vraiment compris malgré son son mal être est palpable, Tomi j’ai trouvé très dur à l’égard de Josiah… Nicky a donc un sacré challenge à relever pour me faire aimer cet homme mais je lui fais confiance, ainsi qu’à Windsor, pour dompter et apaiser la bête !
