When I Lost You – by Kelly Rimmer

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Do you ever wish you had the chance to meet someone again for the first time?

When Leo and Molly met and married, they believed they were invincible. Together they could take on the world. But Leo,a war correspondent, lives for life on the edge, and when he takes a step into the unknown, tragedy strikes and he loses his memory. Molly rushes to help him fill in the gaps and soon they start falling in love all over again.

The trouble is, Molly is hiding something. Something big. The devoted wife at Leo’s bedside is a sham; Leo and Molly’s marriage was on the rocks long before Leo’s accident.

The closer Molly gets to her husband the more scared she becomes that he will remember. As Leo’s memory begins to trickle back will Molly lose the man she loves for a second time?

An emotional, heartbreaking read that will restore your faith in the power of love.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

This is just amazing! I love Kelly’s previous book and was really excited for this. She sure enough didn’t disappoint me.

The story follows Molly and Leo. They are married. An accident changes their view of love and their whole situation. After a few years of marriage they drifted more and more apart and in the end in the end they just wanted different things. Now, Leo doesn’t remember anything.

Leo was a colleague of Molly’s brother Duncan and that’s how they met. Molly wants to talk to Leo after Duncan’s death. They talk a lot and get to know each other. This leads to more. I loved how much chemistry these two had, such a pleasure to read about their moments. They fall in love and get married, this causes problems with Molly’s family, because they don’t like Leo, because of what happened with Duncan.

Anyway, Molly is by Leo’s side after the accident, but it’s weird, they were separated and now he doesn’t even remember being married to her. Slowly he starts living again and Molly helps him gain the memories back. The chapters switch between their moments in the past and the “now”. This is fabulous, because we can read about how they got together, but also their feelings now. Leo is different now, but Molly is scared that he will remember their fights and the reason they separated.

It’s their chance to find their love again, get to know each other again and find a better way to deal with everything. The question just was, will something change and how is Leo reacting on certain news.

This book is very emotional, heart-breaking and touching. A very special story of love and loss. The writing is wonderful, it flows beautifully and really takes you in. I loved the changes between the now and then and also the two perspectives of the characters. Kelly included their emotions beautifully and created a great atmosphere around the story with her words.


My possible cast:

Molly: Carey Mulligan

Leo: Shia LaBeouf
