Hot Mess by Amy Andrews

Firefighter Logan Knight thinks it’s fate when he meets Arabella Tucker again, nine years after their brief, intense relationship ended. Until he realizes that Bella doesn’t recognize him and all of their memories together are completely erased from her memory.

Bella may be oblivious to their history but she can’t deny their scorching chemistry and the possibility of a future with the mystery man from her past. Logan wants a future too, but he can’t go there until Bella knows everything they shared. Her parents, though, want to protect her from the emotional cost of old memories and so Logan is reluctantly persuaded to let the past lie.

But when Bella starts to uncover the truth, she is shocked by the revelations. Can she move beyond the hurt of her shared history with Logan and begin their new story?

I wasn't expecting this to be so emotional and heartbreaking. A very beautiful read about a young couple who dived in head first only to be ripped apart by tragedy. Years later and the hits keep coming and yet they have another chance. It's such a delicate line they walk but also a beautiful story told. If you're looking for a more emotional story that shows the depth of a love that beats all odds, this is the perfect book! ARC provided by NetGalley.

What a dramatic, emotive story this proved to be! It features Logan Knight who spots Arabella Tucker, the love of his life who left him nine years ago, sitting, eating her lunch outside the fire station where he is based. He goes up to her and is amazed to discover she doesn’t know who he is and has no memory of their relationship, but also that the chemistry between them is still as volatile as ever. She’s only in Brisbane for a few months but the two can’t resist rekindling their relationship. However, their past contains other events which she is unaware of, tragedy which drove them apart. Should he reveal all or concede to her parents’ requests not to tell her? As the two grow closer together, secrets from the past still have the power to push them apart . . . . can she cope with her own past history and the tragic events now? This is a very moving story, packed with angst and turmoil as Bella and Logan succumb to their mutual attraction but she can’t recall their past. The problems of living with memory loss and the attitudes of others to this are sensitively explored as part of this heart warming story. This author has a brilliant way of describing emotions, events and scenarios that bring them to life in the reader’s imagination and this is very true of this story which runs the full gamut of emotions from grief to joy and everything in between. It is a very different second chance romance and a brilliant start to a new series which I have no hesitation in highly recommending. I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.

Arabella broke Logan's heart. She was the woman of his dreams, but she left him. When Logan sees her in front of the station, where he works as a firefighter, he feels he has to talk to her. He's surprised, however, that she doesn't recognize him when they meet again after nine years. Bella has amnesia and she doesn't remember Logan at all and has no idea why they broke up. They immediately click just as well as they used to. When Logan speaks to Bella's father he's being asked to keep something from Bella. Logan doesn't want to do this and thinks she deserves the whole story instead, but because of Bella's happiness he gives in and does what they ask of him. The truth often comes out though. What will Bella do when she discovers what happened to them in past, will she give him another chance or will she break his heart all over again? Hot Mess is a sweet and sexy romantic story. Bella doesn't remember anything about her time with Logan. She's a strong woman and deals with her difficulties in a brave way. She's kind and cheerful and I loved how honest and open she is. It's clear from the start that she's the one for Logan. He's passionate about both Bella and his work. He's a dedicated firefighter and I applaud his courage and determination. He's protective and doesn't want to see Bella hurt, but keeping the truth from her feels wrong. I admired his strength and the fact that he has a conscience. I love reading about men in uniform and he's definitely worth reading about. I also liked the amazing chemistry between him and Bella and read their story in one sitting. Amy Andres has a lovely descriptive writing style. She writes about emotions in a great sympathetic way, which makes her story come to life really well. I enjoyed that she gives plenty of information about her main characters, so it's easy to get to know them through and through. It was fabulous to read about two very special main characters. I loved Hot Mess, it's a wonderful story with plenty of original twists and turns.

A second chance romance between Logan and Arabella, but the only problem is Arabella does not remember the first the time . A scorching hot chemistry between the two but can they go forward with out Arabella remembering the past. Her parents want the past to remain history but Logan wants to move forward. Loved this story of a rekindled romance. Great job with the amnesia of Arabella. Very likable characters, Once the truth came out, I was just rooting for Logan and Arabella to succeed in their relationship. Looking forward to reading the rest of this series. I highly recommend this book by Amy Andrews.

Australia is a sweet setting for a guy who can’t forget and a girl who can’t remember who they once were, truly, madly, deeply in love. Logan and Bella were torn apart by a tragedy neither of them could cope with while so young. Logan never lost his love for Bella even though she refused contact with him and eventually fell off his radar, but never out of his heart. When he unexpectedly sees her, he is shaken by the fact that she does not know him at all nor does she remember anything of their lives together. Bella suffers from amnesia from a horrific car accident that happened and has a huge gap in her memories, memories of their time and their love. As Logan struggles to find a way to make Bella remember Bella struggles to make him realize it’s not going to happen. As the story progresses, you’ll want to fight for Logan and Bella to recapture the essence of them.

Hot Mess by Amy Andrews Hot Aussie Knights #1 Logan Knight, fireman, has just returned to Brisbane. While looking at people passing by outside the fire station his brother Duncan comments on how much one of the women resembles a past love of Logan’s. Logan rushes out, calls Bella Tucker by name and is flabbergasted that she has not a clue who he is. What is a memorable year in his life for him is not even a vague memory to Bella – she has amnesia. The chemistry is still hot between them BUT Logan is coming in with his many wonderful memories of their time together while Bella is meeting Logan as if she had never met him before. His expectations and her reality do not always mesh but they decide to spend time together anyway. It is not easy going and there are obstacles to be overcome if they are to have their Fated HEA… Well written story that made me think…”what if”. How would I have coped if I had been Bella? How would I have reacted if I had been Bella’s parents? A book that makes me think is a good book. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – this is my honest review. 4 Stars

What a perfect mix of fun, sarcasm, joy, angst, sensuality, fragility, sexy, tenderness, pain, loss, love, passion, adoration... A story that completely floored me, had me laughing out loud, going 'aaw' and swooning, smiling, and crying or more like sobbing, really. I loved the story, the originality and the uniqueness of it, the tough choices the author did boldly, the fragility of it, yet the strength of the feelings that carried over time and distance, and all loss and troubles. Firefighter Logan Knight was doing well, his life was in order, he had a job he loves, the brotherhood of the firefighters, his family, and friends. Yet he had an empty space inside of him that still held the one woman he had ever loved, Arabella Tucker. Logan was such a strong character, his loyalty, strength, honesty, openness just a few of his great qualities. He loved with his whole heart and was not afraid to take risks. The choices he made were tough, yet there were obvious reasons for them, reasons I could not blame him for. Arabella "Bella" Tucker was a survivor with guts and sass and contagious laugh. I can only imagine the pain and confusion she had gone through and continued to do so, with her amnesia. How her situation with the amnesia was affecting others around her, and Logan in special, was heartbreaking. That little shimmer of hope that never goes away, maybe today they will remember... I want to applaud the author for not taking an easy solution here, but going for the tough one, the one that resembles life, the one that made the protagonist grow, to develop into these amazing people who can make compromises, who can learn to love in hard situations, who can learn to accept the difficult things in life. This story got all my emotions churning, I don't remember when have I gotten so emotional while reading a story, if ever, and I mean in a good way. I was so connected to the characters, it was like feeling their angst, loss, pain, joy, love, desires as the story unfolds. The loss is so great, the pain is so tangible, the confusion so real, the past still so raw it was heartbreaking. But there is hope. There are hard choices, compromises, there are difficult conversations, and there is a lot of love, passion, and adoration, making Hot Mess an absolutely fantastic story, that I love, adore, and feel passionate about. It is going directly to the 'The Best of 2017' file. ~ Five Spoons!

Holy Hotness! I Loved this exhilarating, exquisite, romance! Amy Andrews you are the bomb! I feel blown away! Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this story. Emotional, intense connection, and off the charts, chemistry and heat. I started and finished this in one sitting. I loved every word and I couldn't put it down. You'll fall into the pages of Hot Mess and you'll only pop back into reality when you realize you've forgotten to breath. I felt like my emotions were going to spill over while I was reading and by the end my heart was bursting. When you combine romance with a unique and totally different storyline, stunningly beautiful, as well as tantalizing descriptive, and characters that completely captivate you, you have a must read book. Don't miss out on this story get your copy now! Highly Recommended! Received a ARC through NetGalley and the publisher and I voluntarily wrote an honest review.

Bella and Logan have a past that holds a secret her family doesn’t want her to know about. Against his own desires, Logan agrees to keep the secret…at least for now. This is a sweet love story about two people who have both gone through a horrible experience and have moved forward in the only way they can, which is alone. It’s a pretty angsty read and might likely cause some tears but I loved the way these two came together and found their happy ever after. Told in dual points of view, this is a second chance romance. There is no mention of whether or not the hero had been with any other women and just a brief mention that the heroine had been with other men during their separation. The sexy times are hot and I enjoyed both of these characters. No abuse No triggers ARC provided in exchange for an honest review
