I don’t know. This book just made me shake my head. The love story is not between the characters of Ledger and Kenna. Instead it’s between Kenna and Scotty. And due to how Hoover allows us to see Kenna and Scotty’s relationship, it felt more real and believable to me than whatever this mess was between Ledger and Kenna. I just didn’t buy it. Also when we are finally told about “that night” I called BS on a few things and it didn’t make any sense. I think this was Hoover wanting to make things force fit a happy ending. It just didn’t work for me.
“Reminders of Him” follows Kenna who is out of prison after 5 years. Kenna moves back to a town where her daughter lives (Deim). Kenna struggles though with letting go of her boyfriend Scotty. Walking into a bar she ends up running into a man named Ledger. Ledger apparently feels something immediately for Kenna (yeah insta-love….again). But that is until Ledger finds out who Kenna is and her ties to someone he loves.
Ledger is an idiot IMHO. I am sorry. I don’t get why he cared about Kenna and I rolled my eyes about it.
Kenna…..I don’t know. When you find out what is going on and what happened, my sympathy was at like zero. When Hoover tries to turn things a bit I still went, yeah nope.
The other character in this one, Scotty, felt the most real to me when I was reading.
The writing was good, but I think that Hoover tried too hard with this one. Ledger and Kenna never made sense or felt like the real deal to me.
The ending was way too After School Special for me.
