Book Blast for Reminders of Her by Claudia Burgoa (REVIEW)……

 Grab that box of tissues and get ready to be gutted as a triad relationship that was once unbreakable gets set adrift in the first book in a powerful duet that readers won't soon forget.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Reminders of Her by Claudia Burgoa, along with getting my impressions of this steamy contemporary story, then add this first installment in the Requiem for Love duet to your bookshelf too!

From USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa comes an achingly poignant tale—an exquisite Why Choose? An MMF polyamorous romance told partially in epistolary-style that promises a rollercoaster of emotions, bringing together love, loss, and the unabating pull of the past.
This wasn’t the typical boy meets girl story.
In our case, it was extraordinary: a boy met a girl and another boy. And he fell madly in love with both.
Greyson was a gifted musician whose songs soothed even the most shattered souls. Aerin was a ballerina, exuding an elegance that could steal your breath away.
They weren’t just my loves.
They were my reason to breathe—my world.
Until a tragedy broke us into a thousand pieces.
Now, years later, I'm left haunted by Greyson's melodies and the fragmented echoes of our shared past.
Just as I’m learning to breathe again, our history is flung into the public eye. An agonizingly intimate memoir has surfaced, putting our past on full display. I find myself drawn to Greyson, desperate to shield him from reminders of her.
As we navigate the stinging wounds of our history, we’re on a mission to find the person who ripped the bandages of our past.
Is there a chance this could lead us to something more—a way to fill the void left by her absence? Because finding her is impossible...isn’t it?
Reminders of Her is the enthralling first book in the Requiem for Love duet. Prepare yourself for a breathtaking, slow-burn romance that culminates in a heart-stopping cliffhanger.
This novel will leave you gasping, aching, and craving for more.



Wow!  Just, WOW!  Upon turning the final page of this book I'm left drained by all that came before, utterly broken down by all that befell this triad, and on edge while waiting for the second half of this duet to hit bookshelves.  This story touched me on every level, warming my heart early on as Sanford, Greyson, and Aerin found a friendship before it became oh so much more.  The bond between them was beautiful, their scenes together jumped off the pages, and they completely invested me in their relationship.  I felt everything they felt, smiled when there was joy and bled tears when their pain took an even more painful turn.  What these characters went through was difficult to read sometimes, their painful pasts made even more heartbreaking by the fact that it was family (and those sworn to protect them) who caused the most pain.  Through it all though they had each other and I was right there with them, breathing in their love and support....before their lives broke into pieces, pieces that may never get put back together.

From the first page to the last, this is an epic tale!  It's an unforgettable story teeming with angst that twists you into a pretzel from time to time...before leaving you breathless with one heckuva cliffhanger (although it's one I saw coming).  Even with that knowledge though this was a book that you can't help but be pulled into.  There's angst, there's love, there's emotional pain amidst unwavering support...this book has it all!  I'm now left (impatiently) waiting for the conclusion of this duet, stocking up on tissues while recommending this book to everyone, hoping that Ms. Burgoa builds me back up after leaving me wrecked from all that came before!

My rating for this is an A.
