Remember the Time

Remember the Time - Annette A. Reynolds This was a frustrating read. Some aspects I really loved but others were head-bangingly annoying.

In some ways, it feels more like chick-lit than a category romance. Much of the book is devoted to flashbacks of Katie and Paul, her now deceased husband and what their relationship was like. Also, there is a really involved story line with Mike's nephew (Matt) that I found completely off-putting and irritating. Toward the end, I was pretty much skipping anything to do with Matt. As a result of the backstory and side characters, it feelslike Mike and Katie's romance gets short-changed. When the focus is on Katie & Mike, the book soars. When the focus is Paul & Katie or Katie & Matt (with all of their associated dysfunction), the book sinks like a melodramatic stone.
