About FADING MEMORIES by A.M. Willard:

Isabel Nichols’s life changed in more ways than one through the years. As a young child, she experienced a loss that devastated her. It wasn’t until she was an adult that the universe around her shattered. In a twenty-four-hour time frame, she lost what she’d thought was her world. What followed was a year of mourning, a year of grieving, a year of darkness. Now, there’s one man who can show her the light.

Dakota Jackson left his life behind on a whim, moving to a beach cottage away from the big city where he grew up. He sees through Izzie’s clouds as he gets to know her, with the drive to be everything that she’s ever needed. The only problem is, Dakota holds the key to a secret that could ruin both of their hopes and dreams.

Passion isn’t always enough to heal a broken heart; love isn’t always enough to guide you through the darkness.

This is about two souls that were meant to be together from the day they were born. Two people who have to figure out a way to look past the memories. It’s the now; it’s living your life as you’re meant to, loving the one your heart craves. It’s about letting go of the grieving, learning to be who you are, and accepting life for what it is. 

Can love cure all things despite its hardships?

God, that smirk he always gives me … it’s about to drive me nuts. Jumping down from the counter, I decide to do this myself. This is a conversation that needs to be avoided. In the bathroom, I lock the door behind me and locate the peroxide and a bandage. I hike my foot up on the side of the tub and dab the cotton ball onto the small cut. My breath hitches from the sting. Satisfied that they’re clean enough, everything goes back up and I head back out.
When I enter the kitchen, everything is cleaned up and a brand new glass of water is on the counter waiting for me.
 Dakota’s out in the sunroom with the others, and I use this moment to regroup. The sliding door opens and it’s Dakota again, causing me to let out a sigh of defeat. Not understanding how he doesn’t get the picture that I’m not interested, I decide to kick it up a notch. Do I choose bitch mode, or the whole reverse psychology on him?  He’s inspecting the bandage like he’s prepared to whisk me off to a hospital for some minor cuts.
“You all right?”
“I am, thanks.”
“Wow, she says thanks.”
“Hilarious. You’re a regular comedian today, huh?”
“Are you this way with everyone you meet or is it just with me?” I ask.
“Just with you, Izzie,” he says as he steps closer to me. Dakota’s so close that I can actually feel his breath on my neck. “Izzie, why are you fighting me so hard? Can’t you feel the attraction and the spark? I do, and I know you do.”
With my heart in my throat, I’m not able to respond. He looks at me a little while longer, then backs away and takes the glass of water from my hands and places it on the counter.
