Remembering Joy by Jenni Moen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
~I received an ARC from Book Enthusiast Promotions in exchange for an honest review~
This book... How do I describe it? Let's see. Amazing. Gut wrenching. Emotional. Beautiful. I love when I get an ARC that is so amazing, I'm going out of my mind to get the next book. Jenni Moen is a terrific writer and I love her characters.
Alexis Harper is a junior associate at a law firm in New York. One night after work she meets a guy named Adam Hale at The Library, a bar around the corner from her work. She goes home with him. In the morning, she has a very awkward goodbye, yet it's not really goodbye. She keeps running into Adam in a city of 3 million.
I love Alexis and Adam. Throughout the story we find out that they are connected through something a lot more drastic and emotional than just a simple one night stand. I think Jenni Moen put her heart into these characters. There were times when I hated what Adam was doing, but I completely understood what he went through. And there were times when I felt like I was about to watch a train crash, but I couldn't stop. This was such an emotional read. I got so invested in the characters that I felt their pain. I also enjoyed the supporting characters so much. (I hope Burke and Carly get their own book... hint hint Jenni Moen!)
Overall, I recommend everyone reads it. You may think you know what's going to happen but it all shapes up and plays out in ways you never thought possible.
