Remember My Name (Remember My Name Series Book 1) – Review by Beverly Finnie

Remember My Name (Remember My Name #1)Remember My Name by Laurencia Hoffman
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!

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.

This book is dark, heart wrenching and I am torn in thought. After finishing this book, it has taken me a day to write this review because of thinking of everything that happened in this story. Shane Coulter’s character has totally torn my heartstrings many times in this book. He is angry, distant and at times a complete jerk, keeping family and friends at arms length not to get close. Yet I feel for him completely, the abuse he suffered and the loss of a close friend that he never got over. The story unfolds as we meet Callan, whom was the love of his life, pop back in and wants another chance with Shane. There is a lot of love/hate feelings from Shane when it comes to giving Callan another chance. This story unfolds, but there is so much more… Family secrets, lost friendships, Dark twists and turns along the way, but I do not want to give the book, you need to read it to find out. The ending though made me feel like I missed a piece of some puzzle that I am trying to wrap my head around. Please be advised there are triggers of abuse. Overall 4 Stars.

This was an incredible story for me. I have just come out with my own sexuality in the last few years. Reading about Shane and his struggle of being gay and his family not so supportive of that hit some heart strings for me. Shane has been through a lot. The first boy he dated, Jake, disappeared. Then he met and fell in love with Callan. When Callan walked away, Shane was heartbroken.
Callan reappears and Shane has to make some choices. He still loves Callan, but can they date, and Shane still be able to hide the secrets from his past?
I related to the characters in this book and felt like I got to know them all personally. Thank you Laurencia for a heartstring pulling story. I loved it!

Remember His Name (Remember My Name Series Book 2) by Laurencia Hoffman – Review by Felicia Bates

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

Remember His Name is the second book in the Remember my Name series by Laurencia Hoffman. When I quickly clicked on this book, I hadn’t really noticed it was part of a series! I jumped in at book two, not knowing what to expect nor certain if I would be able to follow along. I ended up enjoying the book and following Wren, often connecting with him, and really sympathizing with his sensitivity as an empath. If you missed the “warning”, this book covers a lot of sensitive topics and may trigger some readers. Though the story contains some dark elements, this built strong, relatable characters that evoked true emotion. There were times I was reading that I felt  uncomfortable because the emotions just leapt off the pages. Conversations between characters, especially between Wren and his mother were so real, I felt like I was watching a movie play out not just reading a novel.  I would consider Remember His Name a 4 star read and will happily go read book one now. Looking forward to more from this author.

Wow! This was a seriously suspenseful book. Shane the pain kept me on the edge of my seat. He had a serious chip on his shoulder. Going back and forth between the memory of his very first love and his rekindling with Cal and his family issues, you almost feel you are in the middle of the family drama. I never saw the ending coming. This is one of the BEST suspenseful crime books I have read. The plot leaves you holding your breathe.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shane, young, bitter, with his heart closed off, hides secrets from everyone in his life, including Callen. Callen, older, successful, and Shane’s first adult relationship, reenters Shane’s life after breaking his heart. Can Callen break through and help Shane confront his past, his many dark secrets, before it is too late?

I enjoyed Remember My Name. The characters are likeable, but are not very well developed. The reader is left with a lot of questions about who he is. The relationship between Shane and Callen was realistic and I was rooting for them to figure it out before another heartbreak. I love cliffhangers and this novel is set up perfectly to lead into book 2 in the series. Great writing!

Remember My Name (Remember My Name #1)Remember My Name by Laurencia Hoffman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Remember My Name by Laurencia Hoffman is a MM suspenseful romance that keeps you reading.
Shane has secrets that he does not want to share, so he does what he can to keep the people he cares about at arm’s length. He is very sarcastic with a less than desirable attitude that makes people question his motives.

Callan is Shane’s first love, and after the heartbreak of Callan walking away, they are back in each other’s lives. Callen sees past Shane’s rough exterior and wants to know the truth of what made Shane the way he is.

Sometimes, it is best to leave things alone. The more you dig the more lives could be in danger.

This was a good read and I recommend you give it a read too! I will be starting on Book 2 soon!
