Crawford Falls, #1
February 26, 2018
How can two simple words make Dylan Bronstad’s heart ache and sing at the same time?
Even seven years ago, Kelly Anne Leeson had possessed that power. Back then, all Dylan wanted to do was drink and make love to her. Really, it was no wonder she’d climbed out of his bed and walked out of his life, leaving him with nothing but a nasty hangover and the lonely memories of their time together.
Today, Dylan’s life is on track. He’s sober with the support of his family and his tight-knit group of friends. But Kelly could derail all he’s worked to accomplish. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to stay away from her.
Lured by the offer of her dream job, Kelly returns home to Crawford Falls and the friends she’d abandoned a lifetime ago. Mending those broken relationships will require some honest answers and a fair amount of forgiveness.
But facing Dylan will take a lot more—like maybe a suit of armor to protect her battle-weary heart and the secret she fears she’ll never be able to keep.
While Kelly searches for a way to maintain the safe life she’s created for her son, Dylan works to remind her of the relationship they once had.
Just as they rekindle their relationship, secrets and half-truths threaten to destroy everything.
**About the Author**
How Kate Carley went from majoring in mathematics and computer science in college to writing steamy contemporary romance still remains a mystery. She broke out into the indie publishing scene in 2015 with her debut novel, Challenged, a 2017 RONE award winner. Two more books completed her romantic suspense trilogy, Changing Krysset. With three published works under her belt, Kate is excited to launch her new contemporary romance series. Just like her first novels, the Crawford Falls series is set in a small town in Kate’s home state of Minnesota. When Kate isn’t busy at her desk writing, you’ll find her dreaming up new characters and plotting perfect ways to make their lives miserable before giving them their happily ever after.

Ummm...Hmmm... I liked this story, but I didn't love it. I do enjoy a good second chance story. This is one that I thought was cute. I wasn't overly enraptured with the characters and/or the story itself. But, I can say that it was interesting enough to keep me reading. Well, I do enjoy "second chance" stories.
Helping Her Remember is an emotional journey of young love that was betrayed and hurt. But, has time help heal these emotional wounds and found forgiveness and a second chance? Well, that's pretty much what if felt like. These two characters, Kelly and Dylan, both were still reeling after events about seven years ago. Now, they both are trying to find their way back....apparently, back to each other. Both have their secrets. Both are not perfect. Both have made mistakes. Both have grown up since Kelly left Crawford Falls. Now, she's back. So... Now, both are finding their way back...to each other. Guess they have to get to know each other...again...after years of being apart.
I thought this is a sweet introduction to a new series. From this first book alone, we are introduced to a group of characters in this small town. There is potential for various other stories in this small town. Dylan and Kelly's story is just the beginning.... I would like to read more about these characters and Crawford Falls. I would think that this would appeal to varying NA and YA romance fans. So... All in all, Helping Her Remember is a somewhat emotional read that kind of grabs at the hearts of young romance readers... I think.
