An accident changed Leighton Clarke's life forever.
After waking from a coma, Leighton Clarke can’t remember anything from the past six years. She’s stunned when her doctors inform her she has amnesia, something she didn’t think occurred outside of soap operas. Anxious and disoriented, the only person who elicits any feelings is Jonathan Moran, a gorgeous chef with compassionate brown eyes . . . who also happens to be her fiancé.
Jonathan isn’t her fiancé. But when his estranged brother—her real husband-to-be—asks him to step in while he’s away in London, Jonathan doesn’t think he has a choice, especially after seeing how the previously aloof Leighton now responds to him. The more time they spend together, the more Jonathan begins to fall for his brother’s fiancé, until he’s wishing the pretense were reality.
When Leighton’s memories come flooding back, can she forgive the man she’s fallen in love with or will his lie ruin the only thing that feels true?

This book was sooo good. The only problem is there was an end.
I really enjoyed this book, loved the characters. I didn't like Leighton at all in the beginning, glad she had her accident so that she became herself. Would love to know what triggered Thomas' hatred for his brother Johnathan. Hope there is a story about Thomas that will explain all and maybe give him a HEA. Recommend this author. Mjw
I enjoyed this book more than the others the reason being the story flowed more fluently. The characters were grounded and established, although I wish there had been a better conclusion to the relationship between Thomas and Jonathan. The first time Jonathan and Leighton made love was rushed though. Without giving anything away, I found myself having to go back and reread parts thinking I had missed something. No I hadn't...the author had just left out some crucial descriptives. (One of the reasons I give it 4 stars instead of 5.) The other reason is the ending was...lack of a better word...rushed. I felt there should've been an epilogue to wrap things up. It would've been nice to know how all friendships/couples wound up. All in all I enjoyed this book emensely. I didn't want to put it down. And the only reason I did was because I made the mistake of starting this book before heading to a party I'd already agreed to go to! Great read...you won't regret the small purchase.
3.5 stars I'm a fan of amnesia romances but they can be tricky to pull off. The plot of this one and the characters intrigued me. The heroine, Leighton, is a high powered political lobbyist and on first appearance she's not a very pleasant woman. The expectation for the reader is that her getting amnesia will change her character, and it does, in fact, do this for the better. We learn what made her become the way she is, and she has the ability to recapture the woman she used to be (a much more pleasant one!) and I enjoyed seeing this transformation. She's a really well rounded character with flaws but ultimately likable. The hero Jonathan is a chef and there are some great scenes with him in the kitchen with his staff, and getting his new restaurant off the ground. His attraction to his brother Thomas's fiancee Leighton is inconvenient but he has no intention of acting on it - until that one time, when he can't resist kissing her and the fallout from that is literal. She gets hit on the head running away from him (and her equally inconvenient feelings for him) and herein lies the amnesia plot. Thomas is away on business and since it's clear ( to the reader) that he and Leighton are entering into a marriage of convenience for the sake of their careers and there is no love lost between them, he sees no need to come rushing back to care for her, leaving Jonathan in a quagmire. He's already named himself as her fiance in order to be with her at the hospital, and when she wakes up from her coma, she has no choice but to trust that he is who he says he is. The doctors think that telling her the truth will disturb her recovery and it's best to let her memories come back on their own, a plan he reluctantly agrees to. The story falls on the ethical tightrope for me. On the one hand, you know that Leighton and Thomas have no real feelings for each other. However Jonathon doesn't really know how Leighton feels about Thomas since she's never indicated to him prior to her amnesia that she didn't love him. Leighton and Jonathan share some very sexy love scenes (because as far as she knows Jonathan is her fiance), but because Thomas still has every intention of going through with the marriage when he comes home, it felt to me like Jonathan was taking advantage of Leighton by not confessing the truth to her earlier. Yes, Leighton and Jonathon clearly belong together and they do get their happy ending, but I'd have liked it better without the cheating aspect. 3.5 stars for an entertaining read that delves into some moral minefields but is well written and has characters I cared about. I plan to read more from this author in the future.
I like a challenge and Tracey Livesay sent one my way. Love Will Always Remember is complicated yet simple. This romance has some major angles. There are circumstances that complicate the lives of all involved. The accident and all it entails is the catalyst. It takes a while to figure out what drives the key players. The irony is that the truth is obvious but seems almost out of reach. I can honestly say, this was a true original. I've never experienced a tale like Leighton and Jonathan's. A smart page turner.
