Author: Jean Kelso
Release Date: August 23, 2014


Jenn Samos lived a quiet life. Loved and sheltered by her family and friends, she knew nothing of the huge secret being kept from her growing up.

Deeply in love with her best friend, the man she thought would be hers forever. One little argument and he was gone. She never understood why.

Now three years later, he’s back. And with him, her world as she knows it, comes crashing down around her. Sean says she needs to remember. But Jenn doesn’t understand.

Can One Simple Memory really get them out of the mess they are in, or will someone die to keep secrets buried?


“Someone wanted her dead? Laying on a concrete slab in the morgue? She shuddered with the thought. Who the heck would want her dead? She was a lonely receptionist at an insurance office with no special skills. She knew how to file, answer phones and do data entry. Nothing exceptional there.”

“Nothing in her past helped to explain her kidnapping. She’d been a good girl her whole life. She didn’t have sex until she was twenty. She never felt comfortable enough with her body to do something so intimate.  And when she finally did feel good enough to do such a thing, that relationship didn’t last. The guy turned out to be a jackass. But she did get a gorgeous necklace from him, so that was a plus. There was only one other guy that had been in her life and that was Sean, her best friend. He had always been there for her. Until one day, he just wasn’t. Things changed so fast in that time. It had been just over three years ago. She thought they were going to be more than friends, well she really hoped. Things were leading up to it. She felt the chemistry between them, but then he just disappeared. Out to dinner and gone, no word since. Did this have anything to do with that? Her mind was running a mile a minute.”



First of all, I would like to thank Ms. Jean Kelso for the invitation to join in her blog tour and for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Jenn led a sheltered life. She's a good girl, no traffic violations, no enemies, and no skeletons in her closet. She doesn't have many friends and her relationships are sparse.

Sean has been her best friend since they were little. His dad is a bad guy that deals with illegal business. When Sean was old enough, his dad made him deal with some dirty tasks that ate at his conscience and made him feel like he wasn't good for Jenn.

For a first time author, this book is pretty good. It has the element of suspense that will keep the readers on edge. The main characters are on the run. Sean and Jenn grew up together. Something happened when they were younger and now they're trying to fix that. They had been apart for three years, because Sean does not want Jenn to be caught up in his messy world. Now that they're reconnected because of some circumstance, the feelings that they have for each other resurfaced. 

This love story with bits of danger will surely thrill the readers looking for a snippet of excitement in their read. The scenes are fast-paced, the conversations smooth and natural. It has the right amount of drama and steamy love scenes that's enough to make you hot. The risk they were taking is enough for the reader to keep turning the pages. The book has also some fun times and sappy moments. The best thing is that it ends in happy ever after.

A debut novel is crucial for someone who is reaching for her dreams. This can be a make or break and I want to say that the author is brave enough to venture on this. Congratulations Ms. Jean Kelso, well done!!
