✱✱Book Review✱✱ Reminders of Her by Claudia Burgoa

From USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa comes an achingly poignant tale—an exquisite Why Choose? An MMF polyamorous romance told partially in epistolary-style that promises a rollercoaster of emotions, bringing together love, loss, and the unabating pull of the past. 

This wasn’t the typical boy meets girl story.

In our case, it was extraordinary: a boy met a girl and another boy. 

And he fell madly in love with both.

Greyson was a gifted musician whose songs soothed even the most shattered souls. 

Aerin was a ballerina, exuding an elegance that could steal your breath away.

They weren’t just my loves. 

They were my reason to breathe—my world.

Until a tragedy broke us into a thousand pieces.

Now, years later, I'm left haunted by Greyson's melodies and the fragmented echoes of our shared past.

Just as I’m learning to breathe again, our history is flung into the public eye.

An agonizingly intimate memoir has surfaced, putting our past on full display.

I find myself drawn to Greyson, desperate to shield him from reminders of her.

As we navigate the stinging wounds of our history, we’re on a mission to find the person who ripped the bandages of our past.

Is there a chance this could lead us to something more—a way to fill the void left by her absence?

Because finding her is impossible… isn’t it?

Reminders of Her is the enthralling first book in the Requiem for Love duet. Prepare yourself for a breathtaking, slow-burn romance that culminates in a heart-stopping cliffhanger. 

This novel will leave you gasping, aching, and craving for more.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've read stories told in epistolary style before, but I don't recall any having such an impact as Reminders of Her. The story moves back and forth as we get the book and the memories, and my heart broke so many times for these characters - and for more reasons than I can explain here without giving too much away. The story has a tone that is absolutely beautiful and full of so many emotions. The blurb promises a heart-stopping cliffhanger, and Claudia Burgoa certainly delivers. I never doubt her ability to pull me in with lovable characters and a terrific story, but this one exceeded even what I expected. And that's with the cliffy! It's a whopper, and it hasn't left my mind for long since I read it. As a matter of fact, I expect this duet to be one that stays with me for years to come, and I expect to come back and visit over the years as well. We also get the added bonus of visits with some past favorites, something I always look forward to from this author.
I could say more, but I'd rather just leave it with a solid recommendation. I'd say dive in without checking out any spoilers and just soak it all in. I'd be willing to bet you'll love these characters as much as I do.
