✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Forget Me, Sloane by Hannah Gray

 

Forget Me, Sloane
Brooks University, Book 2
By: Hannah Gray
Narrated by: Joe Arden & Erin Mallon

Five. That’s how old I was when I picked up a ball for the very first time during flag football—something my mom had signed me up for.

Nine. That’s when I decided I’d stop at nothing until I played football at the highest level.

Fifteen. That’s when my father informed me that the only future I had was working at his private investigation firm.

Seventeen. That’s when I tried to escape the future that had been laid out for me. Tried to cut all ties that connected me to my own blood. Spoiler alert: It didn’t work. They still own me.

Eighteen. That’s when I was told if I completed this one job, I’d be cut loose. Free. I’d finally be free. It seemed easy enough.

Then, I meet her. You know, the one who makes you do all kinds of stupid, wacky stuff because you feel things you’ve never felt before. Yeah…that’s the one.

Here’s the real kicker: What happens when the girl you’ve likely already fallen in love with is the one you need to betray in order to leave behind a life you can’t stand?

Well, that’s a damn good question. I’m dying to know myself.

*This is a stand alone novel in the Brooks University series. This is Sloane and Knox's story.


Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

A couple of things drew me to this book. I like sports romance, and it's narrated by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon. I always know I can count on these narrators to give a good performance, and they do not disappoint. Erin Mallon captures Sloane's feelings and transformation perfectly. Then there's Joe Arden, and I can't imagine anyone else voicing Knox. From the little quips to the sexy talk to Knox's anguish when he suffers a loss, Joe Arden lays it all out there.
This is my first time reading Hannah Gray's work, and I am impressed. This is not just another sports romance. There's a lot of substance here, and the story gets pretty emotional. Of course, there had to be angst. I mean, it's pretty much a given that Sloane will find out about the ultimatum Knox's father laid down, and it's not hard to figure out that she's going to be upset. So, yeah, angst, but Hannah Gray also knows her stuff when it comes to sarcasm and wit - two of my favorite elements in any genre.
To sum it up, Forget Me, Sloane is an entertaining, steamy romance with engaging characters. Knox and Sloane are a couple you can't help but root for, and I thoroughly enjoyed their story. Now that I've been introduced to Hannah Gray's work, I'll be adding a few more books to my TBR.
