Julia Cummings has long been acquainted with loss-her mother, her brother, her sister, her friend, all gone too soon. But the loss that pushed her grief to the limit as a young girl was that of her best friend, Lucas Jonquil, who abandoned her without looking back. Now, eight years later, Lucas has returned to Lampton Park, and Julia has steeled herself-she will never forgive the man who broke her heart.

After losing too many of his friends and family to early deaths, Lucas vowed to live life to the fullest. And after traversing the world, he has returned from his adventures to find his family and home as he left them-except for Julia. The little girl he left behind has blossomed into a captivating lady, a lady who makes it clear she despises him. With little hope of reconciliation, the former friends are blindsided when their parents make a shocking announcement. Lucas and Julia have been betrothed without their knowledge and are to marry immediately. Now Lucas must rely on the help of his closest friends to win the heart of a lady who loathes him-a lady he’s coming to love more deeply every day.

    With plenty of wit and delightful charm, Sarah M. Eden’s long-awaited story of Julia Cummings and Lucas Jonquil begins a new Eden series, The Gents. After meeting The Gents, I can say that I’m eager for the rest of their stories. Forget Me Not started off a bit slow for me, and I wasn’t sure I was going to like the main characters, especially Lucas. There were several parts of the story where I wanted to cuff him on the side of the head. However, luckily, they both grew on me as they tried to navigate their family-arranged marriage. The addition of Lucas’s friends, The Gents, is pure Eden genius, as they added so much levity and fun to the tale. I loved their different personalities and getting to know a bit about their backgrounds. I can see why Lucas enjoyed traveling with them and being with them.

    Although there are many twists and turns and misunderstandings, the tale wraps up nicely with some very sigh-worthy moments and a satisfying end. I was delighted to see a few of the characters from previous stories pop up in this book. I’ve read most of the Jonquil brothers’ stories, since I’m a huge Sarah M. Eden fan. You can’t go wrong with any of her books. Forget Me Not is bound for my keeper shelf.

    I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from the author and Covenant Communications. All opinions are my own.

    I loved meeting Julia and Lucas and the Gents. This book had plenty of wit and charm, as is usual for Sarah M. Eden books. I’m excited to meet the other Gents in this series.

    I have been looking forward to reading this book for as long as I’ve known of its existence. When I saw it come up on NetGalley I jumped at the chance to read it now instead of waiting for the book to come out. It did not disappoint! It was funny, sweet, and heart-wrenching all in one book. My heart ached for Julia in her loneliness. And in true Jonquil form, Lucas really blew it. Those Jonquil men are so dense sometimes but I love them so. If you’ve not read the series about the Jonquil sons yet you need to do that too. There are so many things in this book that are so much more meaningful knowing what comes later. So many things. Here’s just one example but it is a big one. In the books for their sons, each of the boys talks about how their father would respond if he learned that they’d made a woman cry or mistreated one. We learn in Forget Me Not why that was so important to him to teach his sons. It touches my heart.

    I love Julia and Lucas. And the Gents. They are so funny together. The banter is fun and at times charming. The flirting between Julia and Lucas is sweet. The loyalty of the Gents is wonderful. They are a wonderful band of friends.

    I also loved seeing glimpses of families that come to be important in the other books such as the Finleys and Kielders. In the Finley’s case, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    I loved this book and didn’t really want to see it end but when it did my heart gave a swoony sigh. Now I really want Ms. Eden to write a book of the Jonquils that takes place between the end of this book and the death of Lucas. I can never get enough of the Jonquils.

    I’m excited to read books for all the Gents.

    *I received a complimentary ARC of this book through NetGalley and voluntarily chose to review it.
