BOOK REVIEW: A Love Like This (The Remembrance Trilogy, #3) - Kahlen Aymes
‘I wanted every day of forever to spend in his arms, secure in the knowledge that he loved me in ways I couldn’t comprehend and I loved him more than I could ever put into words. The love between us was too much and yet…not enough. If we died drowning in each other’s arms, it would never be enough.’ - Julia
Plans for the future are finally falling into place for Ryan and Julia, as they embark on a new journey, experiencing the pleasures and sacrifices of matrimonial bliss.
Attending the wedding of Aaron and his Jenna is the icing on the cake. Both brothers now successful and thriving in medicine, both settled with the women they love so irrevocably.
There is only one thing that has ever, and continues, to come between them… their careers.
Like passing ships in the night, Ryan and Julia have long established that time together is precious, but with Ryan enduring 80-hour weeks in the ER at St. Vincent’s Hospital in downtown New York and Julia’s career catapulting her to new heights at Vogue magazine in Manhattan, it was always going to be working against them.
Especially as they now yearn to start a family of there own, a baby to seal the bond of love they share - hoping it will further help them both to heal and come to terms with the loss of their firstborn many months ago.
Just as their dream plans start to become a possibility, Ryan and Julia’s world is rocked off it’s axis when Ryan comes under attack in the ER after trying to save the life of a young male who was involved in a gangland shooting. Trying desperately to thwart the criminals wielding deadly weapons while saving the life of the 16-year-old gang member was not something he could do alone. When the rival gang leader attacks, the last thing Ryan sees is Jane, his ER nurse as she shoves him out of the way and becomes victim to a fatal blow to her lower torso.
With Jane’s life hanging in the balance, Ryan battles to stem the significant blood flow by pinching her artery closed until extra aid arrives, amid the realisation that this selfless woman had probably just saved his life.
When Jane learns of the devastating life-changing injury she has received, the only person she can confide in is Ryan, as he aids her in her recovery, both physically and emotionally. Swarming with guilt, Ryan tries his hardest to juggle gruelling work schedules, married life and…Jane.
But as Jane starts to gradually form a close friendship with Ryan, a wedge between Ryan and Julia starts to develop, especially when all the signs are evident to Julia that Jane feels more for her Husband than he is willing to accept or acknowledge.
With no room for a third party in this marriage, the clock is continuing to tick down, walls are starting to crumble and itâ€™s only a matter of time before the world as they know it, may just come crashing down around themâ€Ś
Prepare yourselves readers, for this book is unlike the other two! Ryan and Julia are the strongest book characters I know when it comes to that unconditional, all encompassing love. These are two soul-mates who will always find their way back home to each-other, regardless of the many obstacles that have, up until now, been thrown amidst their path.
But, with book 3, Hold. On. Tight! Because this new and refreshing plot will have you experiencing Ryan and Julia in a whole new way.
We are still treated with double first person narrative, giving us, the reader, a front row seat to the inner thoughts, the undeniable passion, emotional turmoil, jealousy and upset that each individual character flits between, further capitalising on the magic that is, Kahlenâ€™s writing.
She is the master of love scenes and emotional projection. When they hurt, you hurt. When they love, you love. When they act undesirably, you feel that disappointment and frustration. Because to me, Ryan and Julia are not just book characters anymore, they are friends, and as a friend there were times I wanted to jump in-between them and smack their heads together, then in the next breath hug the ever loving shit out of them.
I highly recommend that you read both The Future of Our Past and Don't Forget to Remember Me before reading A Love Like This.
I wasn't sure where this book could go. It seemed like Ryan and Julia had made it through so many different tests to their relationship that they would be rock solid. They were so connected that Julia had immediately trusted Ryan without her memory intact. I wondered if an epilogue or a few chapters advancing a few years ahead might have been a good way to end the story of Ryan and Julia. Instead I found that even a couple so in love and connected and had a strong foundation of trust and friendship could be torn apart under the right circumstances.
I absolutely loved this book. This book was a wonderful way to showcase Ryan and Julia's relationship and a fabulous ending for the Remembrance Trilogy. For me, each subsequent book was an improvement over the one that came before it.
Ryan and Julia are married and finally living together in New York, but they quickly find that they have barely any time to spend together. Both are in demanding careers with long hours. The time they do spend together has them connecting by making love. Their chemistry is a tangible thing. I felt that connection, that need to be with the other person constantly. But because they spent their time making love, the basis of their relationship suffered. I saw them losing touch and not talking to each other. They were almost no longer each others' best friend.
The event that seems to change everything is when Ryan and a co-worker are involved in an incident in the ER. The co-worker steps in and saves Ryan's life while being seriously injured in the process. Out of guilt and gratitude, Ryan feels the need to help her through the after effects and heal. But the closer he gets to his co-worker, the more Julia feels shutout. While Ryan is typically so sensitive to Julia, her needs, and her feelings, he feels torn in two. He expects Julia to be more understanding and show her gratitude. I understood Ryan's motivations, but I just wanted to smack him for being blind to how he was being manipulated and letting the situation escalate. I just knew that a few of those decisions would come back to haunt him when Julia found out.
There are times when they seem able to put the conflict behind them and concentrate on reconnecting. When Julia is finally pushed past the breaking point, she makes a crucial decision about her job and establishes a physical distance between them. At this point my heart broke for both Ryan and Julia, but in the end I think it was the right decision. Both needed time and space to really consider what they wanted and put their priorities into perspective. They really couldn't continue as they were going. Ryan needed to handle the situation and Julia needed to know if she could live with this woman in Ryan's life.
I loved the ending! The ending resolved the conflicts between Ryan and Julia while showing a plausible future for them both. When I thought Julia and Ryan couldn’t get any more intense, Kahlen Aymes comes out with A Love Like This. From the first of the series, The Future of Our Past, I’ve developed this…insatiable? No…obsessive? No, no. This…bond…towards both Julia and Ryan, and I loved watching the growth of their relationship.
I might be biased because I am a huge Ryan Matthews fan, I think he is brilliant, extremely sweet, and sexy as Hell, but underneath it all, he is still male, which made him a little naive on how Jane is affecting his relationship with Julia, in this book. I’ve always believed that Julia spoils him (and he knows it), while she is a strong protagonist, there is a soft spot within her that gives in to Ryan. In A Love Like This, I felt she let her fierceness shine the most in the whole series and while it gave me that lump in my throat and that heart squeezing feeling, I was completely Team Julia! There were plenty of scenes where I wanted to scream into my book at Ryan or ring Jane’s neck, or offer a high-five (and a big hug) to Julia. And I’m not sure if I will ever be able to walk past a physician’s lounge and not get hot flashes, or see a set of scrubs and not think of Dr. Matthews. I have to also mention that there are some of the hottest love scenes EVER in A Love Like This, I mean…forgetting to breathe hot scenes. But, I attribute that to the intensity of their relationship, too.
I don’t want to ramble but I really enjoyed A Love Like This, as always, it was beautifully written, the storyline is genuine and this was a nice closure to the series. The Remembrance Trilogy will definitely remain as one of my favorite series. A FAB-U-LOUS 5 Star Finale to Ryan & Julia's story
The remembrance trilogy books were the first books I read after reading FSOG and Bared to You and I fell in love with Ryan & Julia's story and have been anxiously awaiting this book ever since, and let me start by saying OMG and WOW, this book truly did not disappoint.
Ryan and Julia's love story is truly an amazing Mad Mad Love between these two that you cannot help but fall in love with. This book picks up with Ryan and Julia married for several months now living in New York and heading to Boston for Aaron and Jenna's wedding. They are finally together after spending four years living apart and Julia has now gotten all of her memories back but even though they are living together married, time together is always an issue they struggle with, there is never enough time with them both having very busy careers but their love and desire for each other is still stronger than ever.
"I don't care about anything else. Take my job. Take it all. I just want to hold you forever and never let you go" ~ Ryan
But what happens next is an incident at the hospital that forged a new friendship for Ryan, which starts complicating things with their Mad Mad Love and it gets tested over and over again to the point of causing Julia to make decisions she just may regret she made and may push their love to a place that it cannot return from and has you questioning can that love they had and shared for so long endure this, can they have their HEA.
"You forgot to remember me." ~Julia
When I received the ARC copy of this book I decided I wanted to relive their whole story from start to finish so in the matter of one weekend I read all three books and truly have book hangover. I loved The Future of our Past and their story of them finally admitting their love to each other and enduring four years of a long distance relationship and loved Don't Forget to Remember me where their love is tested by a tragedy and was so heartbreaking at times but this one is truly my favorite, it had their mad love and desire for each other, but it had me laughing, it had me totally swoony over how romantic Ryan was and the love they shared, it
had me crying for them but it truly had me on the edge of my seat the whole time and I could not put it down until I was finished.
I was asked to give an honest review and this book truly was a 5 star book for me. The author truly did an amazing job writing the finale to their story and although after spending my weekend amongst Ryan and Julia's romantic love story, when it was done although I was sad there was no more story to come, I felt fulfilled with how it ended.
For there is nothing for me Forever... But You, And This Mad, Mad Love... I was a little hesitant to start this book as I hate saying goodbye to characters that I've grown to love. Once I started though there was no way I was putting it down. This was by far my favourite book in the series and Kahlen truly outdid herself with this one! I felt this book dealt with some issues that young married couples realistically face. It's those obstacles that will either make the relationship stronger or break it.
Ryan and Julia's relationship is being put to the ultimate test in this book. Because we are privileged to get both points of view it helps better understand what both characters are thinking and it definitely helped me understand some of their actions better.
You do not want to miss out on this phenomenal final instalment in The Remembrance Trilogy! Honestly, I believe everyone should read these books just to see how true love should be! Ryan and Julia, through their ups and downs, show the readers what that "Mad, mad love" looks like!
