The story begins with Emma having explicit dreams about a gorgeous man she's never met. A few days later, she literally meets the man of her dreams, Brandon, on vacation in Cancun. They share one passionate night, and then she heads home. She's heartbroken. Months later, she begins a new job and, TA DA (!), he's her boss. But here's the catch, Brandon doesn't even seem to remember her. This confuses Emma, but she carries on and they get to know each other better.
There were different aspects to the story that initially confused me, particularly about Brandon and Emma's night in Cancun and his not knowing her when they come face-to-face months later. But happily, these issues make sense by the end of the story. That made me happy.
I'm still not quite sure what about A Night to Forget didn't quite work for me. Maybe it was Emma's melodramatic nature. I think part of it is because I wanted to know why and how Emma was having very specific dreams about a very specific person she'd never met. One she just happens to meet in the real world. Also, the story just kind of ends, at a big cliffhanger. I know this type of story seems to be really popular right now, but I think I might prefer to just read the two stories back-to-back.
So yeah...I guess that's it.

I liked the concept of the book. What I didn’t like was Emma’s dreams about this guy she never met but longs for and then she ends up meeting him. I thought for the genre of the book was in that this was just too fake and supernatural to flow with the book. This “dream” also never expanded into anything more. It was there and then forgotten. I just felt that it was too much for this book and wasn’t a good detail for the author to include in this story. After that section of the book it seemed to go pretty well. Then the whole drama with Brandon and if he actually likes Emma came in. I was never sure if he was using her or messing with her or actually cared for her. It went back in forth throughout the book and left me in confusion at the end.
Emma was an okay character. I liked how she tried to keep it professional between her and Brandon, even if she failed. I think that she gave in too soon to her emotions. I felt that at one point she was strong and keeping it professional, then he smiled at her and she was throwing away all her hesitations. She just gave up too easily for me to really actually like her character.
Brandon was an interesting character. One moment he was telling Emma that they were going to stay professional, then he was getting jealous when she hung out with another co-worker. His back and forth emotions confused me and I felt that he wasn’t even genuine half the time. By the end of the book I still wasn’t sure if he was the good guy or the bad guy.
The end of the book was a major cliff hanger and I am curious to see how the next book turns out. I am still having mixed feelings on this book so I might have to read it a few more times before I get into it enough to spend money on the next.
***I received this eARC for my honest review and opinion.***
