A Night to Forget is the first book in the two-book series, Emma's Story. The second book in this series, The Day to Remember is scheduled to be released in August 2013.

What happens in Cancun doesn’t always stay in Cancun.

When Emma Anderson and her friends decided to spend their senior year Spring Break in Cancun, she expected some crazy memories to end their final college days. What Emma didn’t expect was to meet Brandon Fisher. Tall and sexy, with dimples that would make any girl swoon, Brandon Fisher was literally the man of Emma’s dreams. She couldn't quite believe that this stranger, who seduced her every night in her dreams, actually existed.

After serendipitously bumping into each other, Emma could not resist Brandon’s pull and spent an unforgettable night with him. Passing it off as a spring break fling, Emma never expected to see Brandon again. But when she started her first day at her new job a few months later, there he was. The only problem was, Brandon didn’t even remember her.

A Day to Remember(Emma's Story#2): Goodreads coming  August 2013

Note from Author's website:
A Night to Forget and The Day to Remember are the two books in the two-book series Emma’s Story. There will be spin-off two-book series for each of the three girls in A Night to Forget that are Emma’s best friends: Jill, Steph, and Gloria. Please stay tuned for the announcement of those releases later this year.

Maybe I was being naive to think that kind of love could be real, but I was not ready to give up the hope that it could be a reality for me. 

Emma has had a long term boyfriend in college but has not been interested in giving up her V card to him. But she has been having realistic sexy dreams about her and a dimpled, hot, handsome man intimately together. Imagine her surprise when she runs into the man of her dreams in Cancun on Spring Break. His name is Brandon and they spend one amazing night together, but she never hears from him again. Until six months later when she shows up for her first day of work and he is her new boss. And apparently he does not even remember her. She had been broken hearted by the loss already, so this just makes it all that much worse.

"I need to forget about meeting him in Cancun. I've been holding onto the memories of that night and making them into something special and meaningful. But in reality, it's not a night I should hold on to and remember. It was a night to forget."

Brandon was sexy, hot and full of charisma. It was hard to get a handle on his feelings at times because the book was written in Emma's point of view and there was the mystery aspect. But even though you wanted to be mad at him for being such a jerk and not remembering her, you had to like him because he was charming and nice to her as they started working together. And you could tell he had feelings that he was trying to deny. They had a good rapport, but the secrets just hung there between them.

"--this is just crazy, I barely know you, but...when I think about you, I can see forever with you."

This story was cute, short, and sweet. I have to admit partway in I was talking back to my kindle regarding some of the situations and saying WTH?! I had a few issues that were annoying me. But a few questions or inconsistencies that were bugging me early in the book were explained later so you just have to be patient. There were some things in this story that were unbelievable. But if you can deal with that, they are a sweet couple and it is an interesting story. And the story deals with fate, destiny, and true love. 

The writing flowed fast the book was short and left it wide open for the next book A Day to Remember coming out in August. I want to the read the rest of their story to see what happens next since it left us on a cliffhanger I would have liked for it to have had more depth and got into more of the emotional situations, but the idea and story was fun and had some twists. A few things did surprise me. There will also be books written about her friends Jill, Steph, and Gloria that we met in this book. They are all fun and interesting in their own right. 

Thanks to Jessica Wood for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

Jessica Wood writes new adult contemporary romance and chick-lit.

While she has lived in countless cities throughout the U.S., her heart belongs to San Francisco. To her, there’s something seductively romantic about the Golden Gate Bridge, the steep rolling hills of the city streets, the cable cars, and the Victorian-style architecture.

She loves a strong, masculine man with a witty personality. While she is headstrong and extremely independent, she can’t resist a man who takes control of the relationship, both outside and inside of the bedroom. 

She loves to travel internationally, and tries to plan a yearly trip abroad. She also loves to cook and bake, and—to the benefit of her friends—she loves to share. She also enjoys ceramics and being creative with her hands. She has a weakness for good (maybe bad) TV shows; she’s up-to-date on over 25 current shows, and no, that wasn’t a joke.

And it goes without saying, she loves books—they’re like old and dear friends who have always been there to make her laugh and make her cry.

The one thing she wished she had more of is time.
