Sophie Jordan dreams about hooking up with Nicolas “King” Kingman—the gorgeous CEO of her company—but as her boss, he’ll always remain out of reach. King knows he isn’t built for happily-ever-afters and only indulges in brief romantic encounters. But when Sophie agrees to fill in as his last-minute date to a charity gala, an unexpected discovery quickly escalates their platonic relationship to one of passion.

King is determined to ignore their attraction and, feeling betrayed, Sophie severs ties with him and the company. Everything changes, however, when he’s injured in an accident, and Sophie agrees to help until he closes a major deal. Unfortunately, he’s developed amnesia, and although he doesn’t remember their night together, desire binds them in ways they can’t resist.

Time is running out on closing the deal, as well as Sophie moving on to her new career. Will King deny love in favor of winning and lose Sophie forever?

In Forget You (The Kingman Brothers #1) by Nina Crespo, Sophie Jordan wishes her boss Nicholas 'King' Kingman would take notice of her in a romantic way. However, there's no way he'd get involved with an employee. Yet, when he needs her to be his date for a charity gala, she finds things changing for the better. But when King is injured in an accident, will Sophie and King achieve their shot at happy ever after or will he ruin things between them because he believes he's not cut out for a forever relationship? 

Ms. Crespo is a new-to-me author and I'm really glad I read this story because it was a wonderful and entertaining book from start to finish, especially because of what happens to the hero and the decisions the main characters make that put them at odds. Will the hero respect the heroine's wishes when it comes to her career path? However, it was from the moment the hero has his accident where things really get interesting for this story, as the hero needs the heroine.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, especially that of the hero, since what his father did is the reason why he's so against a forever relationship. Will the hero realize that forever is a good thing before he loses the woman that's coming to mean everything to him? Moreover, the heroine is strong and courageous when it comes to handling the hero's reaction to what is happening between them. Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was the decisions she makes that have her pursuing her passion and something she excels at. While the hero, he's confident, hard-working and I liked that he realized how invaluable the heroine was to him. She's not just his employee. I also liked the challenges the hero faces including whether he'll be able to handle the pressure of his job once the accident happens. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero was his determination to win the heroine over, especially once he realized how much she's coming to mean to him. 

Overall, Ms. Crespo has delivered a delightful read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was strong; the romance wonderful; and the ending had me loving what the hero does to win the heroine back after their relationship goes awry. I would recommend Forget You by Nina Crespo, if you enjoy workplace romances, the boss-employee romance, or books by authors Katee Robert, Lia Riley, Jenny Holiday and Megan Crane.

What he was about to do seemed crazy. He just needed to hear Sophie say nothing sexual had ever happened between them. Then he could chalk up those images as pure fantasy.
He pulled into a space, threw the gear in park, and got out. Sophie’s shocked expression alone would whip him down to size. Guilt over dreaming of her naked would replace his attraction to her. That’s exactly what he needed. A heaping pile of remorse.
Signs with numbers and arrows led him through the maze of duplexes in the courtyard. In the past, he’d followed her from work after a long night to make sure she’d made it safely home, but he’d never actually gone to her apartment before. King located the right door and rapped on it. Not that he had a good reason now.
A porch light flickered on above him. He heard movement inside. What if Sophie’s roommate answered? He’d forgotten about her. Shit. What was his excuse? A lost phone number. Problems accessing the presentation from his computer.
Sophie opened the door. Devoid of makeup, hair swept back into a ponytail, and dressed in a faded green tee and jean shorts, she radiated uncomplicated beauty. “King? What are you doing here?”

He barely squashed the need to take her in his arms and went inside. “We have to talk. Is your roommate here?”

“No. Robin’s at work.” She closed the door. “Why? What’s going on?”
“When were we together?”

“Yesterday. Don’t you remember?” The genuine concern in her expression made him feel like a cross between a jerk for thinking of her sexually and a man struggling to prove his sanity.
“No. I mean yes.” He raked his hair and pulled so hard his scalp stung. “When did we sleep together?” Shock. Laughter. An emphatic denial. He braced for them.
Sophie paled. She shrugged and brushed her bangs from her forehead. Her tell. She planned to deny what happened.
No way in hell was she getting away with that. “How long ago was it? Weeks? Days? Why didn’t you tell me?”
