When her mom is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, she puts her own life on hold and dives head first into caretaker mode. Her days are spent consumed with the troubles of others—her mom, her wayward sister, the neighborhood stray cat, the single mom next door. She tackles every issue as though it were her own, ignoring herself in the process.
Until she meets Jude Hargrove. After one brief encounter, he manages to awaken something inside of her that she had long left for dead. Herself.
But is it too late for Nellie? Can Jude help her see her own worth or will she be destined to see herself as a problem that just isn’t meant to be solved?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
That all changes thanks to a handsome, charismatic Starbucks barista. Jude is everything Nellie needed at the exact time she needed — and she didn’t even know. Jude has been through some family trauma himself, and he helps Nellie live again, put herself first. But when life becomes unbearable and Nellie is forced to choose between what she wants to do to make herself happy and what she feels guilt about when it comes to her ailing mother, will she push away the best thing that has ever happened to her?
Nellie and Jude’s story is a wonderfully sweet romance, and this story is full of heart. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you are looking for a feel-good, clean romance, check out Life Forgotten. But this story is so much more than a feel-good romance.
