Reminders of Him Review

617uZq23IPLSummary (from the publisher): After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.

The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna’s life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them.

The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.

My Rating: 4/5 Stars

My Thoughts: 

I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t been the biggest fan of Colleen Hoover’s recent releases, including the ones I have picked up & some others that I haven’t picked up because their synopses haven’t grabbed my attention. For example, I haven’t picked up Heart Bones, I felt pretty mixed about Regretting You, I DNF’ed Layla this summer, I was not a huge November 9 fan, and I don’t have much memory of reading It Ends With Us – I am happy though for the fans who love that book that are getting It Starts With Us later this year. The biggest exception is Colleen Hoover’s indie release/thriller, Verity, which everyone should go drop what they’re doing and read that book ASAP.

So you might be wondering why I picked up CoHo’s latest release, Reminders of Him. This book was mostly a case of the hype getting to me, especially since TikTok & bookstagram have made CoHo a household name. I also was intrigued by the premise, following twenty six year old, Kenna, who has recently been released from prison after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter of her boyfriend. When the accident that took her boyfriend’s life occurred, she did not know that she was pregnant with her daughter, Diem. While serving time, Diem has been raised by Scotty’s grandparents and his best friend, Ledger. Ledger is an ex NFL player and now owner of a bar, where Kenna goes when returning to town.
