Blurb/Synopsis of Book A story of enduring love as romance goes all wrong and Emily Montgomery struggles to rebuild her life after a terrible accident changes everything.
Emily wants romance in her life—the kind of romance that leads to a perfect marriage. She dreams of having a husband who loves her and treats her with respect, someone she can spend the rest of her life with. She meets—and marries—Steven Montgomery, hoping he will make all of those things come true.
Everything is wonderful, at first; until things start to slowly change. Steven begins to mentally, verbally, and physically abuse Emily. Through it all, Emily tries to be the best wife she can be.
Finally, after so much devastation, Emily leaves Steven, files for divorce, and moves on with her life. Her sister, Monica, introduces her to a wonderful man named Robert. Emily falls in love with him. He is kind, gentle and sweet—all things now missing from her marriage. She is happy, in love again, and well on her way to divorcing Steven.
But, Steven doesn’t want the divorce; and, since he is a savvy lawyer, he tries everything to prevent it. Although Emily still has residual feelings for Steven, she knows that it could never work between them. She wants to move on with the new love of her life, Robert.
After a horrific accident, Emily can no longer remember Robert and all the things he has meant to her, and she can no longer remember all the horrific things Steven has done to her.
Emily has two men professing their love for her. She is confused; she doesn’t know where she belongs or who she should be with. And, she has a hard time deciding who to choose. Emily is being pulled in several different directions by her loved ones. They all mean well, but only Emily knows how she truly feels. She has to decide, on her own, what to do.
All Emily wants is to start over, but that isn’t so easy, since everything in her world is broken, and she isn’t sure how to fix it. All Emily wants is to be happy, healthy, and whole again, but that may not be in the cards for her, either.
Review Quotes “A fascinating story about who we are and how our memories ultimately guide us in the choices we make.”

review

This is my first read by Ms. Epps. She brings us the story of a young woman who is finally trying to rebuild her life, after leaving her husband who she found cheating on her.

Emily, thought she had found true love but somehow it all went wrong, she had everything money could buy with her husband Steven except fidelity, trust, and respect. She didn’t see it till when arguing one night while they were arguing he accidently pushes her down the stairs and she their baby. She finds the strength to leave everything behind. And then just when she has the courage to end her farce of a marriage she is in an accident and remembers nothing of the past few years. Steven is her loving husband and the new man in her life although she feels something she has no idea whom he is.

Steven, is a dirty rotten sticking hound of a man – I wanted to poke him in the eye with a branding iron more than once. Robert, Emily’s boyfriend is steadfast in his feelings and at first he is doing everything he can to help her recover her memory. Of course, her stinking bastard of a husband takes advantage of her vulnerability and tries to start over.   Will, Emily ever be happy, healthy and whole again? Will Steven win Emily’s trust and love again, 0r will Robert prevail in his attempts to rekindle what they had? This is a story that will make you feel, I had to put it down a few times just to relieve the pressure on my heart.

If you are looking for a superb story of love, redemption and rebuilding, this one is definitely worth it. My only small complaint is how rushed the ending felt. That being said – this should definitely on your reading list.
I am an independent reviewer for Romance Author’s that Rock.
 

What inspired you to write your book?  I had the idea for my book roaming around in my head for years.  When I was growing up I would get different ideas in my head for a book or movie. One of the ideas I had was about a woman going through a messy divorce and losing her memory but only remembering the good years she shared with her husband. Since he claimed he had changed and she could only remember the good in him she had to decide if she was willing to give him a second chance.

Do you have a specific writing style?  I usually write down all of my ideas on paper and then just jump in and start writing the story.  Once I’m well into the story –which would be a couple of chapters in I try to make an outline.  That way I can have some sort of idea where the story will end up as I’m writing.

 

How did you come up with the title?  Funny but the working title was called Forgotten because I wanted to show that Emily has forgotten all of the bad things her husband has done to her and forgotten her new boyfriend, Robert because of her memory loss.  But as time went on I wanted more of a sad romantic type title.  That’s when I came up with I Wish I Could Remember You.

Do you have any advice for other writers?  My advice is if you love to write you should write as much as possible. Even if you never make any money from your writing, if your proud of it or if one person likes it that makes it all worth it.

 

What books/authors have influenced your writing?  One of my favorite authors is Nicholas Sparks. When I read his novels I always get emotionally involved.  I’ve shed a few tears reading his novels, and that’s the kind of reaction I would like my novels to get when people read them.  I love novels where I want to jump to the end to see what happens but I don’t because that would ruin the story for me.

 

What genre do you consider your books?  I write fiction novels.  My first novel is Contemporary Women’s Romance. I also write Young Adult Fantasy and Dystopian.

 

Do you ever experience writers block?  Yes, I experience writers block sometimes, when that happens I listen to music.  Sometimes music brings ideas flowing to my brain.  I’m not sure why but it does.

 

Have you ever hated something you wrote?   Yes, I’ve written scenes that I’ve hated so I keep rewriting the scenes until I feel better about them.  I have even gotten rid of entire scenes and started over from scratch.

 

Where did your love of writing come from?  When I was a child I day dreamed a lot and I had an active imagination.  So I think it started when I was a child. I loved to dream up new worlds and new people and as I grew up I liked to write about them.

 

Do you write every single day?  I try to write every day. It’s not always easy because sometimes time is limited. Some days I can get a lot written and other days a little.  But as long as I can write down a few words here and there each day I can get my writing goals completed.

 

Which writers inspire you?  I like Nicholas Sparks, Danielle Steel, J.K. Rowling, Susan Mallery, and Suzanne Collins.

 

What are you working on at the minute?  I’m finishing up a Young Adult Fantasy-Dystopian novel I’ve been working on.  It should be released in a few months.

 

What is your favorite theme/genre to write about?   I have two favorites.   I love to write Contemporary Women’s Fiction and I also like to write Fantasy as well.

 

What is your latest book about?  My latest book is about a woman named Emily. She in her thirties and is going through a terrible divorce.  Her husband, Steven is abusive and controlling and he doesn’t want the divorce.  Emily is trying to move on with her life and during her separation she meets someone new named, Robert.  Before the divorce can take place Emily is in a terrible accident that robs her of some of her short-term memories. She can only remember the good times with her soon to be ex-husband not the bad, and she cannot remember Robert at all.  Both men profess their love for her and she has to decide who she wants to be with. Will she choose the man who claims he has changed even though she has heard about the terrible things he has done to her from her sister, but can’t remember? Or will she choose the man she’s been told she’s in love with now but can’t remember him at all.
