Successful restaurateur Lucien Black’s blue-green eyes and unattainable attitude drive women wild. But his abandonment issues and criminal past have left him emotionally closed off. When a familiar face shows up for a job interview at his nightclub, the ache he has tried to forget tears at his heart—it’s the girl who once healed him…and then abandoned him.
Darcy MacBride still remembers Lucien’s delicate touch when they were both wildly in love teenagers. His gorgeous eyes had soothed her hurt after she’d been dumped off at the orphanage where Lucien lived. Darcy felt his jagged edges fit perfectly into her own, and she’d planned to spend the rest of her life with him—until a mysterious man warned her away.
Now, fourteen years later, she’s ready to endure the torture of Lucien’s indifference and having him as her boss…just to be near him. But when it seems that they might finally take up where they left off, a devastating secret buried in their past threatens to tear them apart again.
L.A. Fiore’s story of smoldering love recaptures the tormented romance of Beautifully Damaged.
Beautifully Forgotten is suppose to be about Lucien and Darcy reconnect, and descovering a whole lot about their past that they never knew... Or at least that was I understood from the blurb anyways. But it was also a lot about Dane(who I thought was a major bad guy in the first book) and Trace and Ember.
Lucien and Darcy do reuinte. But it is not the reuion that Darcy was hoping for. Lucien is bitter and resentful of what Darcy did to him all those years ago, but he's trying to forgive her for it, especially when he doesn't know the whole story behind it. But these two will oncover a whole lot of crazy things in their search for the truth.
This book was okay. I wouldn't say it was great, or bad really just okay. I loved all of the stuff between Lucien and Darcy! That was really awesome. However, I sort of felt like towards the end when everything was coming together it was all sort of far fetched even in this plot line. Some of it just didn't make sense, and seemed to be added for additional drama. I also didn't like all of the stuff with Trace and Heidi. Seriously? It felt like Trace was almost repeating mistakes he made in the first book and that just got stupid. I did however love Ember even more in this one. She was awesome! And I also really loved Lucien and Darcy's characters and the few new ones such as Brandon.
If there are anymore in this series I'm not sure I will be reading them, but this one was a nice interesting read!
