Posted July 8th, 2016 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, Review / 6 comments

In Carides’s Forgotten Wife by Maisey Yates,Greek billionaire Leon Carides has it Caridess-Forgotten-Wifeall: wealth, power, notoriety, even a wife—though he’s never touched his convenient, innocent bride. Then an accident rids this damaged, debauched playboy of his memories…

Leon remembers nothing, except his wife’s sparkling blue eyes. Now the desire he feels for Rose overrides the gaps in his past, making her impossible to resist! But when his sins catch up with him, can Rose forgive the mistakes of the man he once was? Or will Leon lose more than just his memory?

Carides’s Forgotten Wife by Maisey Yates is a well written romance on the redemption/memory loss trope, the story starts off well and maintains a good pace till the end.

Rose and Leon share a good chemistry and I loved seeing them fall in love all over again. Their romance was both emotional and passionate with sparkling dialogues and some really good moments. I enjoyed the first half of the story but the later part, when Leon’s past is revealed was difficult for me to accept.

The Leon before the accident was not a very nice husband because he shattered Rose’s self confidence and even cheated on her. He does change for the better after the accident but still I was not very comfortable with the cheating aspect. Rose is a sweet, insecure and caring heroine with a really big heart. I liked her but wished she was a little more feisty and strong.

Overall, I am a little conflicted about this one because the hero’s past spoiled things for me a little but if you can get over that, this one was an enjoyable romance with some really good moments.
