McKenzie Ridge #3
By: Stephanie St. Klaire
Releasing February 28th, 2017

In Forgotten (McKenzie Ridge #3) by Stephanie St. Klaire, Morgan Jameson's life gets turned upside down when a mysterious stranger is found unconscious on her property. Having no-one declare him missing and the man not knowing who he is, Morgan offers him a place to stay for a while. However, the longer he stays around, the more dangerous things become. Can Morgan and her mystery man figure out who is targeting him, so they can have a shot at happy ever after; or will discovering her mystery man's name tear them apart?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. St Klaire, and I've got to say that this story does not disappoint. Right from the beginning, this book was riveting, fast-paced and made me laugh, as Morgan has such great friends that need her help. The way they were talking about delivering something was quite amusing, and had me reading quickly wanting to discover just what they were delivering. Turns out it wasn't what I was thinking. However, it was the moment when the hero entered this story where things really got interesting and where this book became a real page turner.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and everything that happens to the hero and heroine throughout this story. The person targeting the hero causes some huge trouble that threatens both their lives and those moments had me on the edge-of-my-seat, wondering whether everything would turn out for the best, because there were some close calls. However, the dialogue wasn't all intense. There was plenty of playful banter between the main and secondary characters, especially Jesse and Granny Lou. Both are absolute hoots with Jesse constantly trying to get a rise out of Blake and Granny Lou being the elderly resident of McKenzie Ridge that loves to have fun and do a bit of match-making.

I really enjoyed both the main characters, but it was the secondary characters in Morgan's friends and Granny Lou that made this story all that much more. Their dialogue and the support they offer each other proves just how good it is to be a part of a small town. As for Morgan, she's strong, brave and I liked how determined she is to help the hero. Can she along with her partner, Blake, find the person causing all the trouble for the hero? 

Moreover, the heroine faces some tough challenges such as wondering if she can trust someone she's known for a long time when he has something against her mystery man, and the decisions she has to make concerning the hero. When they learn the truth of the hero's identity, will she take a chance on him or let him go? While the hero, I felt sorry for him at times, because of the tough decisions he had to make and how frustrating it is for him not to be able to remember. When he does begin to remember, how can he be sure that nothing bad will happen? Yet, what I liked most about the hero was how protective he was of the heroine. 

Overall, Ms. St Klaire has penned a fantastic romantic suspense in this book, which had my pulse pounding at times due to the suspense, had me swooning because of the hero's adoration for the heroine and delivered some hot sex scenes that did justice to this couple's intense chemistry. The way this story ended was wonderful, as the hero was determined to fight for their love and show Morgan that nothing can keep them apart. However, although things ended well for the hero and heroine, the epilogue left me reeling with shock. Will a certain secondary character be all right? I would recommend Forgotten by Stephanie St. Klaire, if you enjoy romantic suspense or books by authors Elle James, Susan Stoker or Pamela Clare. Just make sure when you do read this book to have some tissues close by, as you may need them!
