“For 20-year old Kyle Thomson, nothing in the world is more terrifying than the prospect of telling Allison Jeon that he loves her. That is, until he finds out that this mystical café in a peculiar place called Nowheretown had served her a cup of afforgeto—a brew for forgetting—a drink she ordered intending to forget him. Hoping to reverse the spell, Kyle reluctantly teams up with a bunny-eared hopeless romantic and a badass barista to retrieve Allison’s memory jar from the Repository of the Intangible. But when stealing back forgotten memories doesn’t quite turn out as expected, Kyle is left with no choice but to conquer his biggest fear.
Can the magic of Nowheretown supply him a fixer-upper, or will the magic in his steadfast heart be enough to grant them their happy ever after”
**Thank you Tara Frejas for sending me a review copy of your book The “Forget You” Brew.**
I don’t remember how it happened, I was just reading the book, and next thing I know, I’m closing it with a smile plastered on my face, it’s as if I’m floating. I actually think that I look like a smiling dog.
Kyle Thompson, lover boy, more like a secret lover. He doesn’t have the guts to tell Allison how he really feels. For him, telling her means suicide. That is what he fear most.
Allison Jeon, a girl who’s desperate enough to forget the one she loves whom she thinks will never feel the same way to her.
Likha, a rabbit-eared girl who’s been a really great help to Kyle. Also, there is Tim, the oh-so-hot barista who brews the “exactly-what-you-need” drink, with a magical menu.
“Nowheretown finds you.”
Tara made a truly great job at making a mystical, yet fascinating setting. The place was called “Nowheretown”, a place for people who have nowhere to go.
“This is a lot to take in.” -Kyle
Everything was new to me, from bunnies who take form of what your heart carries, down to a place where you’ll be found, and know what you need.
The author made me want to be found.
It was a magical read. It was unique, and you can simply go with the flow of the story. I love how Tara used her imagination in writing such a wonderful book. How she made a place like Nowheretown, a magical coffee shop with magical menu and coffees. The only thing that I didn’t like about the story was it lack twists, and you can easily go and wander the author’s mind, it was predictable. Still, outstanding and unlike othe books I’ve read.
Though it’s a very light read, I’ve learned a lot of things.
1. You need to be brave and say whatever it is that needs to be said, and do whatever it is that needs to be done.
2. To forget means running away from your problems and being weak. Forgetting will do good, but will also do more bad.
Overall, I had fun reading the book. I loved the book and I’ll continue to support all of her works. I’m looking forward for new ones!
P.S. can someone please make me an EXPRESSo Machiatto? And in the right time, an afFORGETo Coffee. Just kidding! 😂
