Review by Loraine Oliver ~ 5 Stars ~ spoiler alert if you have not read the other book

Remember Me is the third book in the Shattered series, and it does not disappoint. At the end of book two when Baby Antonio was kidnapped by Jose and then all hell broke loose, Keisha was shot. In book 3, we see what happens between Gerrit and Kesha as keisha survives the surgery but her mind blocks out a lot of things and she does not remember Gerrit or how important he is in her life for her to be happy. Book 3 is the road to recovery and remembering for Keisha and for everyone else to finally be able to put closure in all the terrible things they have gone through since book 1. Book 3 also introduces us to some new characters that will be important in future books in this series.
Gerrit and Keisha have loved each other since high school, and have been through so much together, and they were finally getting their lives together when Keisha got shot and got amnesia.
For Gerrit, this event has shattered him. he takes a leave of absence from the FBI and just starts drinking and staying away from all his friends, he is broken-in mind, body and spirit and he can't take it any more.

Keisha does not remember Gerrit but her heart does, and she feels so alone. She is staying with her brother, and yet she knows that she does not belong there. A chance meeting at Brett's bar causes them to get together for a while and Keisha is getting frustrated as she has questions, questions about her past that Gerrit won't answer for her, as he is afraid if he does answer her questions, she will run away from him for good, and he can't take that chance.

This book was so sad, and yet it was so well written that you feel that there may be a chance for them to be together again. Whether or not they do get together you will have to read to find out.

In the meantime an old friend of Sebastian's comes into the picture and we learn a little bit about him. The next book (4) will bring him fully into the series, and Brett as well, as things are about to change for him.

This book was about hope, and how the power of love can heal anything big or small. The book is about the power of forgiveness, and the hope one has that the future holds something better for all of the characters in this series who have been through so much, and also its about the power of friendship.

I loved this book and I loved the way so many things came together in a good way for all of these characters. I also loved that one of the couples learned that trust is what holds the key to a better relationship, because without trust there is nothing. These characters also showed us that there is always light at the end of the tunnel-but you have to look for it, if you want it bad enough.

I gave this book a 5***** star rating and can't wait for the next book!
