✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Image of You by Melanie Moreland


From NYT best-selling author Melanie Moreland comes an epic love story of loss and redemption.
I realized in that one moment something was terribly wrong.
“I apologize,” she spoke, sounding formal.
“You have me at a disadvantage.”
Her hand rose in greeting. “I’m Alexandra Robbins…and you are?”
I stared at her hand and then her beautiful face.
The woman I had loved passionately—desperately—and still loved to this day.
My former fiancée…who was looking at me with no recognition.
As if I were a stranger to her.
And then it hit me as I took in the emptiness in her eyes.
I was.
I’d spent so much time trying to find my way back to her, only to have her not remember me.
One thing was for sure—I would spend my last breath trying to remind her who I was, who we were, and who we would eventually be again.
All I needed was the chance to show her.

(Previously published My Image of You, Random House 2017)

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

From the hot cover to the very last word, The Image of You is absolutely riveting. This is so much more than just a romance (not that Melanie Moreland doesn't do that wonderfully). This is an emotional journey of epic proportions, and the writing took me along with Alex and Adam every step of the way. These two are so good together that it's pretty much impossible to keep from rooting for them. And was anyone else totally furious with one character in particular? To name names would be venturing into spoiler territory, but once you've read the book, you'll know exactly who I'm talking about. Only one word came to mind while I was reading: villain. Yep, this one definitely has a villain. Anyway, I'm gonna cut this one short before I spill the book's secrets. To sum it up, Alex and Adam have one of those loves we all wish for, and every woman should have an Adam in their life. So, I have one more Melanie Moreland book to add to the ever-growing collection of five-star reads. I'd definitely recommend this one, and I'd challenge anyone to see if they can put it down.
