'Heartbreaking ... I completely lost myself in this book' Louise Jensen

Do you ever wish you had the chance to meet someone again for the first time?

When Leo and Molly met and married, they believed they were invincible. Together they could take on the world. But Leo, a war correspondent, lives for life on the edge, and when he takes a step into the unknown, tragedy strikes and he loses his memory. Molly rushes to help him fill in the gaps and soon they start falling in love all over again.

The trouble is, Molly is hiding something. Something big. The devoted wife at Leo’s bedside is a sham; Leo and Molly’s marriage was on the rocks long before Leo’s accident.

The closer Molly gets to her husband the more scared she becomes that he will remember. As Leo’s memory begins to trickle back will Molly lose the man she loves for a second time?

An emotional, heartbreaking read that will restore your faith in the power of love.

If you like to lose yourself in Jojo Moyes or Nicholas Sparks then you will love WHEN I LOST YOU, the deeply moving new novel from Kelly Rimmer.

What people are saying about Kelly Rimmer:
‘I fell in love with this amazing book after the first sentence and would read it all over again. A wonderful mixture of emotions, real love, secrets, laughter and sadness.Sky’s Book Corner

‘I was hooked right from the start, and it was just the most beautiful portrayal of falling in love I've ever read. It's the type of love you dream of and want for yourself… Kelly Rimmer has done an outstanding job with Me Without You, it's engaging, it warmed my heart to the very core, and then tore it out and stomped all over it.Me Without You is an unforgettable tale that I couldn't recommend more.' 5/5 GirlsLovetoRead.com

Me Without You is the beautiful, moving story of Callum and Lilah and they turned me into a complete emotional wreck. I loved the banter and the chemistry between them both right from the first, brilliant chapter and then as the book went on, it warmed and broke my heart all at the same time… It’s an incredible novel. Reviewed the Book

It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that made me ‘ugly cry.’ You know what I mean… big, fat tears rolling down your cheeks leaving you with eyes so puffy you look like you’ve had an allergic reaction. Think Claire Danes in… well… pretty much any role she’s ever been in. Kelly Rimmer’s Me Without You certainly broke that dry spell… a heartbreaker of a book that has great characters and a gut-wrenching ending that…

This is the first book that I have read of Kelly Rimmers. I think that she did a great job of really developing the characters and the love story between them. As you read the book you really felt like you were an outsider watching two people falling for each other. In addition to developing the characters very well she also did a great job of really setting the scenes in the book. Areas that I found to be lacking in the book was the pace of the story. I felt that at times the chapters seemed to drag on and were to long in length. It caused me to take longer than normal to read the book as at times I lost interest. If it wasn't for the present day love story where they were falling back in love I am not sure I would have finished the book. All in all it was an okay book but is not something that I would read over again. I am interested in reading more books from Kelly as I do enjoy the well developed characters that she creates and may have not connected with this story but may with a future one.

When I Lost You,  Kelly Rimmer Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  Romance, women’s fiction I’ve enjoyed a few books by Kelly now, she has an easy to read writing style and yet one that's filled with emotion, and pulls at the heart strings. This book certainly did that!!   The story alternates between past and present, between Leo and Molly’s POV and that gave me an insight into how they were feeling inside. Its easy to side with Molly and feel Leo is to blame, but then reading his thoughts you see where he sees things as going wrong. It was an awful situation, made worse by the change in circumstances, and his loss of memory. I so felt for Molly, so in love, trying so hard and yet I could see why Leo was so solidly determined to stay with his incredibly dangerous job. He seemed to feel that it defined him, made him Someone, and given his background he needed that to be the man he though Molly wanted. Take away his job and he’d lose all the confidence and personality that she loves – well, that's how he seems to see it.  Its a tough call, how far can we go in asking someone to give up something they love, and which is a huge part of their life. Will they ultimately grow to resent the other person for forcing the issue? Yet if things don’t change will the other person resent being forced into a passive role accepting something they really don’t like, worrying all the time and maybe deciding the worry and upset isn’t worth the good parts? It’s something faced by many couples. I loved this book but one thing stopped the magic five for me – I felt the build up was great, played out so well, had me on the edge of tears and yet somehow the ending just didn’t feel totally convincing to me. I had a hard time accepting it, somehow it seemed too much of a convenient compromise, and a solution that could maybe have been thought of before – still, I’d have missed all the angst then ;-) Stars: Four, an excellent and heart wrenching read ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers

Imagine if you could press ‘reset’ on a marriage that’s gone wrong and choose a different path for it. The other path – the one where you say together, in love.Because of Leo’s memory loss, Molly and Leo have that opportunity. At first, this book discombobulated me a bit. For the first half, it’s told from the present by Molly, and the past by Leo because, after his head injury, their past is all Leo can remember. The different timelines felt a little choppy initially, and some of the transitions were short, so I didn’t always have sufficient time to get to know, or feel sympathy for, the characters before being whisked to the other. I soon got used to it, though, but always needed to keep an eye on the date I was reading in. Both characters were well written and both are flawed. In fact, I didn’t like Leo a great deal. I found him to be selfish and arrogant and certainly past-Leo was almost entirely unwilling to compromise. Molly loved him, though, so it’s testament to the writing that I wanted the best for them. This story is a wonderful antidote to billionaire romances, a role reversal where the money of one partner creates more issues than it solves – at least for Leo and his unreasonable pride. Although the characters have a clean slate on which to rebuild their marriage, there are layers of complexity still lurking. Molly remembers everything they’ve gone through but just as Leo is rediscovering his memories, they are both rekindling their love for each other. I love that this book is set in Australia with a diverse element that isn’t often present in mainstream literature on an international stage. I have a big soft spot for Australian TV, film and literature, anyway. There is something beautiful about this second chance love story, and in watching Leo and Molly get their opportunity to repair and heal. I would be very interested to read Ms. Rimmer’s other books. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
