Remember His Name (Remember My Name Series Book 2) by Laurencia Hoffman – Review by Beverly Finnie

Remember His Name (Remember My Name, #2)Remember His Name by Laurencia Hoffman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Remember His Name is book 2 in the series by Laurencia Hoffman. Her Characters and story are extremely well written. Yes this book ties into her first book Remember My Name, but I don’t feel you have to read that book as well though you SHOULD, to enjoy this one. This story does contain potential trigger warnings early on, but it’s not a theme throughout the entire book.

The book specifically focuses on Wren as an 8 year old boy to the present day, who lives the life of an empath. (Side note: For anyone who doesn’t know what an empath is, it’s someone that feeds off of other people’s energy. Which is something that could be absolutely rewarding but also weigh very heavily on them.)
We follow Wren through his emotional turmoil after his husband is murdered.

When he stumbles upon Adam his life changes, and he starts to live life again, despite knowing his fate. Adam helps him in his quest to find out who murdered his husband, before the murderer gets to them.

Does Wren find the guy who murdered his husband? Does he get the opportunity to clear his name and prove he’s a good person? All those answers and more will be found throughout your book journey with Wren. Again it’s another well written book by author Laurencia Hoffman and I encourage each and everyone of you to give it a chance. You will not be disappointed!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Remember My Name by Laurencia Hoffman is not for the faint heart and has potential trigger warnings within. It’s well written and it definitely has lots of intrigue.

The main character Shane reminds me a lot of Holden from Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger. He’s stubborn and he’s all about Shane! He’s someone who doesn’t take other’s feelings into account and uses sarcasm as a defense mechanism. This is his journey of his experiences of that great love as well as a past, present, and future of trauma and sadness in his life.

When Shane first meets Callen, he knows that’s it for him. Callen and Shane share a chemistry that exceeds all obstacles in their way, or does it?

He’s extremely secretive and the trauma’s in Shane’s life not only impact his relationship with Callen, but also family and the few friends he has. Unfortunately he has one secret he feels could destroy everyone he loves that he uses to push everyone in his life away.

Does Shane end up with his happily ever after? Do his secrets destroy everything he holds dear? I encourage you to dig in and find out. If you love a good romance with some suspense and mystery thrown in, this book is for YOU!

A murder mystery with a very different back story. So interesting and intriguing. The main character has so much depth you can’t help but be empathetic towards him. He is living but not thriving and you’ll become his biggest cheerleader. Along the way, you may even reflect on your own life and the difference you make.

Childhood trauma can manifest in an adult in many ways. Shane has suffered and survived, but has yet figured out how to thrive. Coming to terms with long kept secrets may be the key to his healing. This book is full of compassion, intrigue, mystery and heartbreak. You’ll be rooting for Shane & Teddy as they both deserve a happy ending.

Four Stars

Remember His Name is the second book in the Remember My Name Series by Laurencia Hoffman. This story features Wren and Henry and the twists and turns had me reading long into the night. You could read this book as a standalone but I would recommend reading the first book in the series first. They are both good reads. This book closed some gaps that the first book left hanging. The writing improved with this book, not that the first book was bad, this one seemed to flow better. I like reading MM genre and I look forward to reading more from Ms. Hoffman in the future.

I love finding authors with a unique voice. And this series from Hoffman is one that stands out to me for several reasons. In an era where too often fiction we pick up has very strong male leads, Hoffman dares to provide male characters that have depth, a distinct voice, and emotion (gasp). I really have enjoyed the emotional journey this book and series has taken me on. Just really well written.

I enjoyed this book. Its the first book I read that involve gay men. The storyline kept me turning pages, cant wait to see whats next. It does have some violence so for certain people it might be a trigger.

Remember His Name (Remember My Name, #2)Remember His Name by Laurencia Hoffman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wren Stafford is an empath, he has known this from a young age, but has never been accepted by others because of it, he lives with his parents, but they don’t get on as well as they probably should do and because of his ability to feel the emotions around him in an amplified manner, it often times overwhelms him, not to mention that if he touches someone, the experience is even more unsettling as he has images thrown at him from the persons past. All Wren wants to do is live a normal life and help others, but this is not going to be an easy thing to do, but as soon as he can leave home, he does, but things change completely when he meets someone at his workplace and finds the love that he has always wanted and the knowledge that they love him too, despite being the way he is and Henry is that person .

Wren still finds it hard to imagine that his one true love has found him and sometimes that plays on his mind, but the more he begins to accept it, the more he flourishes as a person and grows into his abilities and his confidence in every day life and when Henry proposes to him, he tearfully agrees to marry him, the next chapter in his life rushes by him in a whirl of wedding planning, work and love, that is until what should be the happiest day of his life arrives and he has a horrifying vision as he takes his vows. His vision is of his husband being murdered, he tries to tell Henry what he has seen, but he isn’t believed, this is the beginning of an anxious downwards spiral for Wren as he tries desperately to make Henry realise that it is true, but as the vision begins to play in his nightmares and more detail is forced into his dreams, Henry finds it more and more difficult to accept, until the day it actually happens and Wren is too late to stop it.

As the investigations starts, Wren is the prime suspect because of his knowledge of what was going to happen and him being found at the scene of the crime itself and despite the fact that he was attacked and injured himself, nobody believes his innocence and the small life they had been building falls apart around him as people turn on him and pint their accusatory fingers and words in his direction as well, in the end, Wren stops going out, he distances himself from work and closes himself off from the world outside. However, what they don’t know is that Wren is now having visions of his own death and they are just as gruesome, if not worse that Henry’s, again, his nightmare play out the scene, but this time, it is different, this time, he can see certain things he couldn’t see before, could these things lead him to the real killer? Will Wren be able to figure out the puzzle being laid before him, or will he run out of time and become the next victim before he can prove his innocence at last? This is a thrilling mystery with a thread of romance weaved throughout and will keep you guessing the who, where and what all the way until the end as the tangled mess of flashes is unravelled.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow and I thought book 1 was heart breaking, this one really did it for me. Please be advised of the triggers of abuse when reading this book. I can say this book parts of this were harder to read due to the triggers for sure for me, but yet I wanted to know about Wren. His story is truly heartbreaking, especially when growing up all he wanted was unconditional love from his parents but his father, I am just shaking my head. There are no words I can describe Wren’s father, just not good. When Wren meets his love, Henry, thinking this could be Wren’s happiness. But as fate would have it this book, twists and turns come into play. Will Wren find out the truth? I recommend reading the first book as some things tie in… but I do not want to give it away. Overall 4 Stars.
