Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he's been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy's determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she'll finally be able to move on.
In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.
I started reading Too Hard to Forget without reading the previous novels in the series. It didn’t give too much away but enough to know who the characters were and for me to want to read Rita and Aaron Clarkson’s story.
Too Hard to Forget is Peggy’s story. On a cross-country trip, what’s left of the Clarkson siblings, decide to make a stop at Cincinnati, for Peggy’s Alumni week. Here we get the backstory of her and Elliott’s past and what could or won’t be in their future.
The one thing I thought it lacked was more of a description of Elliott. I kept waiting to read how old he was, I don’t know why I needed it, and more of a description of Elliott’s looks.
The chemistry between Peggy and Elliott was off the charts. Tessa did an amazing job of writing their interactions when they got hot and heavy. She also did a great job of creating likable side characters. My favorite has to be Kyler Tate, who played a role in getting Elliott to wake up and realize what Peggy meant to him.
It was a little slower paced than what I’m used to reading but it was still an enjoyable read. I’ve enjoyed other novels by Tessa Bailey and will continue to read her work.
