A Love to Remember is a wonderful novella that is sweet, emotional, dramatic, and entertaining. Did I understand Graham's decision to not open his heart to the pain of watching him deteriorate if and when Alzheimer's claimed him? Yes. Do I agree with his decision? No. It's difficult watching someone you love become less than their whole self but to deny the good because the bad might happen isn't right either and that's where Sam comes in, but you have to read this one to learn just how he helps Graham. This novella may be short on pages and one that probably could have been even better with more detail but it's a lovely read as is. Connections in life are not only important but necessary. After all, you never know what tomorrow brings so why deny yourself on the "what ifs"? A Love to Remember is jam packed with heart with just a splash of heat and frankly, what more could a reader as for?
I only had one hang-up when it came to A Love to Remember and that was the author's use of "caretaker" in regard's to Graham's role with his dad. I've been caring for my mother for some time and its important to both parties to use the term "caregiver" we are "giving" care to someone not "taking" it. Now I know that doesn't seem like it would make much difference but it does, both emotionally and psychologically, to both the carer and caree. It wasn't something that took away any enjoyment that the story brought me so I didn't take any marks off but it did register with me while reading it and afterwards so I felt I needed to comment on it. Generally when most people think of "caretaker" they think of one who tends to the property, grounds, or estate. Once again I just wanted to mention it but it didn't take anything away from the good feels Graham's journey gave me.
This is my first Sarah Hadley Brook story but it won't be my last, I look forward to checking out her backlist and any future writings. New authors are always a gamble but this one is worth the risk.
There’s a whole lot of sweet in this story, with a couple of doses of holy wow heat *fans self*. There’s also a heavy hit of reality with Graham’s father’s Alzheimer’s, and it really drove home just how awful and debilitating it can be. Personally, I think Graham’s fears of someone leaving him are really unfounded giving the bit of family background we do have, but I do understand him not wanting to put someone through dealing with him if he were to become sick as well.
I loved the emotion that shone from both men, especially with Sam. As Graham noticed, Sam does wear his heart on his sleeve and he’s direct and honest with Graham from the start. I would have liked to have had Sam’s point of view at certain points in the story to give it just that bit of extra emotional depth, but even only seeing things from Graham’s point of view you could still feel the emotion coming from Sam.
A Love to Remember was a very solid 4-star read for me, and if you’re looking for a quick M/M romance this one will leave you feeling fulfilled and with a smile on your face. This book is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and some hot and steamy sexual content. I’m hoping the author will tell Marc’s story as well since he really piqued my interest with how easily he falls for others—and how easily his heart gets broken.
After Graham and Sam had their one-night stand, they never imagined meeting again. Big is their surprise when Sam is the home health care aide. Graham’s dad has early-onset Alzheimer’s, and Graham can’t take care of him on his own anymore.
On the one hand, It is a sad story, but a story that needs to be told. Alzheimer is a cruel illness for both the person concerned as their family and friends.
It is painful to watch how this disease affects a person, but this author describes it with love and care. Of course, there is the forgetfulness, the memory loss, but his dad also becomes a completely different person. And then there are those much-welcome lucid moments in which his dad is just like he always was.
On the other hand, it is a sweet and lovely story. I loved these two men. The author did a wonderful job bringing them to life, and I could really connect with them. They have that immediate connection, physically but emotionally as well. They take it slow though. One step at a time. The biggest reason is that Graham is afraid of commitment. Alzheimer runs in the family, and he doesn’t want anyone to burden with this disease. Sam is very understanding about it, and he doesn’t push Graham, but neither does he back off. He has complete faith in a future together. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and he is honest about telling Graham how he feels. Graham is a sweetheart, caring for his dad so much without belittling or smothering him, and I can so understand his fear. But most of all, I admire his courage. The courage to see that love is worth giving a chance, that it is worth everything. A love to remember.
