Brooke is ex-military and needs a job, because she needs to take care of Robin, her teenaged sister. Robin is responsible but sassy, and a thoroughly refreshing character. Brooke and Catherine hook up one night, and things soon get complicated. Brooke wants a relationship but Catherine has been burned once.
Forget It by Claire Highton-Stevenson is a romance full of delicious heartache, a generous handful of hurt/comfort, a balancing dash of humour and to top it all, an ice queen.
Characters and situations were real enough that I wanted to yell at them (couldn’t, though – was reading at night with everyone else sleeping), and I just couldn’t put the book down until I was sure things would turn out ok.
