Lexi wakes up in a hospital bed after a car accident, thinking it's 2004 and she's a twenty-five-year old with crooked teeth and a disastrous love life. But, to her disbelief, she learns it's actually 2007 - she's twenty-eight, her teeth are straight, she's the boss of her department - and she's married! To a good-looking millionaire! How on earth did she land the dream life??! She can't believe her luck - especially when she sees her stunning new home. She's sure she'll have a fantastic marriage once she gets to know her husband again. He's drawn up a 'manual of our marriage,' which should help. But as she learns more about her new self, chinks start to appear in the perfect life. All her old colleagues hate her. A rival is after her job. Then a dishevelled, sexy guy turns up...and lands a new bombshell. What happened to her? Will she ever remember? And what will happen if she does? 

Remember Me? is a cute and fluffy read that was fun while it lasted. A little ironically, however, I highly doubt I'll remember this one six months from now.

Lexi Smart has lost her memory of the last three years. And things have changed immensely. She's married to a millionaire she's never met, has thousands of dollars of designer clothes and is on the board of directors at work. But none of her friends will talk to her, her husband won't let her eat carbs and she can't understand how she fits into this new life.

Lexi is a likable character, but, if we're being honest, she is pretty dense. It takes her ages to figure things out that any normal person could have figured out fairly quickly. Lexi's family was generally annoying. Her friends were pretty awful to her in the start and Eric was basically robo-husband. Jon was an interesting character, but I couldn't agree with some of his actions based on principle.

The story is cute and fun and was basically akin to watching a silly romantic comedy. An enjoyable way to pass the time, but not going to win any Oscars.

  1. I have only tried one of her books but I loved it. I am glad this was a cute read but sad it isn't a stand out read or one that you will probably remember months from now. Even still, we all need reads like this one once in awhile. ;)

  2. It sounds like a fun read to past the time, but too mad it was kind of unmemorable lol. Great review Megan!

  3. I was expecting it to be heavier or more mystery when I read the blurb, not light and fluffy. Too bad it isn't very memorable.

  4. Ha ha ... I liked this one, too! I do love Sophie's standalone books ... they're a lot of fun!

  5. It's been YEARS since I last read a book by Sophie Kinsella, but back-in-the-day I was totally addicted to her Shopaholic series. This one sounds pretty cute too!

  6. Cute and fluffy certainly has its place

  7. LOL Your last sentence said it all! I felt the same girl. That's when I realized that either romance comedies or chick-lit aren't really my thing. I always need something more layered and less predictable. Great review :)
