Goodreads Synopsis:

An ambitious wedding planner must work with her grumpy florist ex, whose heart she broke, on the most high-profile wedding of her career, in this spicy and emotional romance from popular fanfic author Julie Soto.

He loves me; he loves me not…

Ama Torres loves being a wedding planner. But with a mother who has been married more times than you can count on your fingers, Ama has decided that marriage is not the route for her. But weddings? Weddings are amazing. As a small business owner, she knows how to match her clients with the perfect vendor to give them the wedding of their dreams. Well, almost perfect…

Elliot hates being a florist, most of the time. When his father left him the flower shop, he considered it a burden, but he’s stuck with it. Just like how he’s stuck with the way he proposed to Ama, his main collaborator and girlfriend (or was she?) two years ago. But flowers have grown on him, just like Ama did. And flowers can’t run off and never speak to him again, like Ama did. 

When Ama is hired to plan a celebrity wedding that will bring her business national exposure, there’s a catch: Elliot is already contracted to design the flowers. Things are not helped by the two brides, who see the obvious chemistry between Ama and Elliot and are determined to set them up, not knowing their complicated history. Add in a meddling ex-boss, and a reality TV film crew documenting every step of the wedding prep, and Ama and Elliot’s hearts are not only in jeopardy again, but this time, their livelihoods are too.


Ama Torres is a wedding planner who doesn’t think a wedding is in her future. She loves a wedding, which she considers just a party, but after seeing her mother get divorced sixteen times, she doesn’t want to get married herself. When she lands the biggest wedding of the year with celebrity Hazel Renee, the catch is that she will have to work with florist Elliot Bloom. Elliot and Ama were dating years ago, but it ended suddenly. Their clients can see the undeniable chemistry between them, so they take every chance they can to get them together. Ama and Elliot have to figure out if they can make it work this time or if their plans for the future are just too far apart. 

This story was beautiful and hilarious. It starts with Ama comforting a bride with cold feet telling her that this wedding is just a party, and the marriage doesn’t necessarily have to last forever. That’s not at all what I would expect a wedding planner to say to a bride on her wedding day, so I knew this would be an entertaining read. 

Ama and Elliot had an enemies-to-lovers, second chance romance. There was loads of steam involved too. They seemed like opposites yet their chemistry was just too strong to deny. 

Forget Me Not is an entertaining and steamy rom com, coming out this summer!
