Blog Tour and Review: Remembering Joy by Jenni Moen

Goodreads Summary:

Alexis doesn’t believe in fairytales. She knows first hand that life can turn on a dime – that one stupid mistake can shatter dreams and irrevocably shape the future. Even though her memory of that day is hazy, she has spent the last ten years trying to put it behind her and focus on the future.

Armed with the knowledge that her career will be her only legacy, Alexis works night and day to prove that she is more than just her last name. It’s not only that she doesn’t have time for love – she doesn’t have the heart for it. After all, there’s no point in starting something that you can’t finish.

However, when she meets Adam, she’s drawn to him in a way even she can’t deny. He is dark and brooding and strangely charming. He’s the perfect distraction from the mundane life she’s created for herself. And, as if fate is pushing them together, he seems to be around every corner. It’s enough to almost make her entirely forget about her past and take a chance.

Unfortunately, Adam’s memory isn’t hazy . . . not in the least. And, what she doesn’t remember, he can’t forget.

Author Bio:

Jenni Moen lives in her hometown in Oklahoma with her husband and three crazy, exuberant kids that have the potential to burn the house down at any moment.

When she’s not chauffeuring kids around town, performing her mom duties as a short order cook and maid, or vacuuming for her fastidious husband, she hammers away at her keyboard at her big girl job as a patent attorney. While vodka and exercise have provided some relief from the daily grind, it is reading … and now writing … that are her true escapes.

My Review:

For some reasons, I adore love stories where the main characters start off not liking one another. I really enjoy watching the transformation from dislike to love. Remembering Joy takes this one step further with the love interest Adam hating Alexis and wishing to exact revenge against her for the wrongs he feels she has committed.

Remembering Joy was very well done and I really enjoyed the chemistry between Adam and Alexis. Both of the main characters are complex and damaged and it could’ve led to a very destructive relationship. Instead I loved how they were able to heal one another and create something beautiful out of a horrible tragedy.

The pacing was good and I liked how the story is told from Alexis and Adam’s point of views. Adam was really hard to cheer for at first because of his actions, but I was pleased that the author didn’t paint him beyond redemption. As the mystery unfolds about why he hates Alexis, the reader is able to understand his motivations much better. Alexis was likable but I wished she were a stronger female character. It was sad to me that she felt like she warranted Adam’s mistreatment.

I loved the themes of love, healing and redemption touched upon during the story. The ending resolved everything nicely and I was glad that the characters had evolved. I would definitely recommend this to fans of contemporary romances with a twist.

Rating; 4/5 Stars
