Remember When is the third addition to author RC Boldt's adult contemporary romance series entitled Teach Me. Book three is a second chance romance between Tate Donnelly, a fourth grade social studies teacher, and Miller Vaughn, a former Navy SEAL now working as a private security consultant. After more than a decade of no communication, Tate and Miller find themselves thrown together in the most unexpected of circumstances. They were once very much in love, vowing that the other was "the one" for them. But when letters to Miller are sent back to Tate unopened and his mother informs her that he no longer wants anything to do with her, Tate's heart is broken. Feeling betrayed and abandoned, Tate tries to move on with her life, but while she thinks she may be over him, seeing him and being around him again brings long buried feelings back to the surface. What she doesn't know is that Miller has been nursing a broken heart for just as long as she has, neither one realizing the unknown truths that could either give them long-awaited closure or another shot at finally getting their happily-ever-after...if only they'd take it.
Three books in and I can happily lay claim over this third and latest book as my favorite! It was angsty but not bordering on the hysterically dramatic so and it had humor but nothing over-the-top. I really liked how the author let the story play out in a more realistic manner rather than speed through with a reconciliation simply based on Tate and Miller still loving one another. That doesn't mean, though, that it was this convoluted thing that dragged out. If anything, I didn't realize how quickly I was able to finish the book, considering this was three hundred pages long, but that's what happens when the story is well-written and engages you throughout. There were many moments of hesitation and doubt for these two, and that air of vulnerability made it easy to not just empathize with them but to give credence to the hurt they carried for over a decade. Tate and Miller were a great couple and the cast of supporting characters were a hoot when they were hanging out, but they were also the best support system these two could have had. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series, thanks to Remember When being a five-star read. ♥
