Review of When I Lost You by Kelly Rimmer

Brief Summary:

Leo and Molly from day one were the most unlikely couple. Born and raised in different backgrounds their love story was a roller coaster from day one. Leo, the best friend of Molly's brother instantly feels a connection with Molly and their love builds. However, with every marriage their love hits bumps in the road and is on the verge of breaking. But things all change when Leo is injured on the job. Molly rushes to his side to find that the Leo that she had just seen shortly ago isn't the same one laying in the bed.  As Molly stands by her husbands side she starts falling in the love with him again. However, she worries that his memory will come back and he will remember their marriage was on the rocks. 

My Review:

I received this ARC of When I Lost you from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. This is the first book that I have read of Kelly Rimmers. I think that she did a great job of really developing the characters and the love story between them. As you read the book you really felt like you were an outsider watching two people falling for each other. In addition to developing the characters very well she also did a great job of really setting the scenes in the book. 

Areas that I found to be lacking in the book was the pace of the story. I felt that at times the chapters seemed to drag on and were to long in length. It caused me to take longer than normal to read the book as at times I lost interest. If it wasn't for the present day love story where they were falling back in love I am not sure I would have finished the book. 

All in all it was an okay book but is not something that I would read over again. I am interested in reading more books from Kelly as I do enjoy the well developed characters that she creates and may have not connected with this story but may with a future one.
