"He's mine. He's always been mine. And he always will be mine."
It is hard to imagine such terrible parents exist, but N.E. Henderson makes you believe they do. Whitney and Shane, once inseparable, haven't seen each other in ten years after Whitney's parents made a decision that changed the course of her life. Once rebellious and artistic, Whitney is now an unhappy stay-at-home mom to a husband that rules her life. Her every move is watched and criticized, but she believes this is what she wanted before she lost her memory so she stays for the children. Shane has followed his dreams, only deviating from his plans when the painful memories become too much. The good guy covered in tattoos in honor of his former love can barely take it anymore, but they're drawn to one another and even ten years can't change the connection they have. I really liked Shane, he's so well developed, an all-around good guy, and more than the cliche male heroes that grace the pages of books lately. His POV was by far my favorite, because his love is the all-consuming kind that I just adore. He sees who Whitney is despite the way her mind, and circumstances, have imprisoned her true self. Whitney though, she's stubborn, but sweet and her POV reads just like you might expect from someone who knows very little about her former self. She looks at life from a mother's perspective and it's unique to have a contemporary romance that features that style of thought. It makes the book move slower, with the romance moving in reverse, starting with family and its drama rather than friendship and dating.
Of course, the two lost soulmates aren't being kept away by fate, but rather by intervening parents and a man who hides his obsession a little too well. It's a story about wealth and expectations and neither has room for true love. Whitney and Shane have an unlikely opportunity to be together every day, but it's driven by Whitney's obsessive husband and the need to protect Whitney and her children rather than by romance. The reader can feel the connection between the two, but we're gifted with a view of the dark and suspenseful reality thanks to Henderson's writing. We get to see that things aren't just happy, as Whitney's husband's texts increase and as one of her daughters begins to fear her visits. Henderson makes the story feel real, like you too are constantly on the look out for when someone will burst in and take the dream away.
I really enjoyed More Than Memories, it's great as a standalone and an excellent release in the More Than series. Readers will love the characters and the realistic storytelling. If you're a fan of contemporary romance with a bit of suspense and a dash of angst, this one is for you.
More Than Memories follows Shane and Whitney, high school sweethearts who are soul mates. This starts off with Shane and Whitney in high school, right after graduation, a terrible tragedy happens and they are torn from one another. Whitney suffered memory loss and Shane is told she is dead. He is devastated. How can he go on when the love of his life is no longer alive. He can hold her, kiss her, marry her, have kids...he is lost.
Fast forward Ten years later, Shane’s life is turned upside down when he spots her at a party. Whitney doesn’t recognize Shane, but feels a pull towards him. His voice sounds so familiar, but she doesn’t understand why.
Whitney is now a married to Blake, her high school sweetheart and has two kids. But something feels off and has for the last ten years, but she can’t explain it. She has these vivid dreams and in those dreams is her prince. But who and what are these dreams about?
Shane is now a pediatrics resident who loves working with kids. He has become a bit of a work alcoholic to try not to dwell on his pathetic life. He keeps wanting something that will never be. But how can he move on?
I don’t want to go into too much more detail, but this is a ride that will have your emotions spinning. I was angry for Whitney, sad for Shane and devastate for what their lives could have been. I loved seeing everything unfold and for Whitney to trust in someone. Their love spanned a lifetime for them and they never completely settled. Whitney was defiant when she could be and feisty. Shane just didn’t think anyone could ever compare to her. She was is soul.
The chemistry between them was explosive at times and sweet. I loved how Shane was with the kids. Everly and Emerson were adorable. The bond that Shane and Whitney had was unbreakable. I loved that!!
I can’t wait to read more in this series. I enjoyed getting to see Taralynn and Shawn again. N.E. Henderson writes beautiful stories. This was a story that was well developed, the characters were engaging and I found myself completely immersed it. However, I think you should read More Than Lies first, but its not completely necessary. It had been awhile since I had read it so I need to brush up on some of the drama. But I still Highly recommend this read. 4 Guitar Stars!
Whitney and Shane were high school sweethearts until a horrible accident rips them apart. For a while Shane believes that his beloved Whitney is dead. That's what he and his family were told. He's devastated and feels like part of himself has died too. Years later he finds out she is alive but she is married to someone they knew from high school that she never even liked. But Shane tries to move on with his life. Then at a Halloween party, he comes face to face with the girl that still holds his heart. But she has no clue who he is.
Whitney has had amnesia for the last 10 years. She's married but has no true feelings for her husband. Most of the time she doesn't even like him. She only stays because of her daughters. But when she "meets" Shane, she is instantly attracted and drawn to him. Something she doesn't understand but she knows feels right.
This chance meeting leads them on a whirlwind path of reconnection and discovery of the deceit that they were both dealt 10 years ago. This book hooked me from the first page and I didn't want to put it down. I loved Shane and Whitney, her daughters, Everly and Emerson. All the secondary characters were amazing as well. Really hope we get more stories from this group of friends.
