At one point or another, everybody finds themselves wanting a second chance, whether it be missing the mark on an investment, failing to live up to a certain goal, or letting a true love slip away. It’s very seldom, however, that one receives the proverbial do-over.
Charlee Stoll and Hunter Jett become the modern-day exception. After a decade-long estrangement, the high school sweethearts reconnect when Hunter, fresh off a career in arena football, returns to his hometown. Their reunion catches both of them by surprise, and they quickly recapture the love they once shared. When Hunter begins to rethink his choices, though, tragedy strikes. During a heated confrontation, Charlee's thrown off a horse and sent into a week-long coma.
When she awakens with no clue who he is, he seizes the chance to right his wrongs, but it proves more challenging than he expects. On top of romancing her, he must overcome her father's displeasure, another ex-boyfriend vying for her love, and her own mission to regain her memory. Through charm and deception, can he win back her love…before she discovers the truth?

On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts, Forgetting My Way Back To You by Karina Bartow is hand-whipped cream. Whipping cream by hand takes time and effort, but you choose the level of sweetness. Whipped cream pairs well with desserts to breakfasts and back again. Charlee and Hunter, reunited high school sweethearts, are on the path to marriage when Charlee is in an accident that leaves her unconscious for a week. When she wakes up, she doesn't remember Hunter. Is this his chance to rewrite his wrongs and confirm his love for her? Maybe, if he can get around the fact that Charlee remembers another boyfriend better than him. Karina Bartow is a new-to-me author. I thought the concept of her story was an interesting one, but the action started slowly. Once I was halfway in, the story seemed to take better shape and have better direction. While I wanted more from the characters, I did enjoy Charlee's father as well as the smarmy weasel of her ex-boyfriend who tries to take advantage of her memory loss. If you enjoy romance and stories unwinding from head injuries, you should pick up Forgetting My Way Back To You.
