Can he build a future, when he’s forgotten his past?
Jared has fought hard to achieve something close to ‘normal’. Needing to get away from his well-meaning but suffocating family, he follows a message he wrote on a scrap of paper to a new city, hoping to find a missing piece of his past.
When Kyrone, a cocky pole dancer at the Heaven and Hell Club, saunters into the tattoo parlour Jared works in, his life is turned upside down again. A passionate one night stand turns into something unexpected for both men. But life is never simple as they work out if they can have a future beyond what has been forgotten.
Forgotten is an MM romance with hurt/comfort, a small age gap, and two men who need to learn to be true to themselves. It is the second book in the Heaven and Hell Club series and, whilst it can be read as a standalone, works better if read after Broken.

Oh my heart, what a truly amazing and special story!
I loved this story! It’s so raw and heartwarmingly real and honest. I think Jared and Ky are now etched on my heart alongside Jag and Michael (from Broken).
I loved the continuation of the Heaven and Hell Club series and seeing all the favorites again! This story is honest with real life and the somewhat harsh reality of a traumatic brain injury. I could feel Jared’s suffering, frustration and pain, all while he was trying to build his new life and come to terms with his accident and lost memory. I both loved and hated that Jared was so intrinsically linked to Jag’s story even though he couldn’t remember. It’s sad to see the other characters grieve for a life gone even though the person is still alive. Colette embraced this aspect with such passion, compassion and care you feel every emotion and don’t give up hope that he’ll remember.
Now for a bit of a spoiler…
I loved Colette’s honesty when it comes to a brain injury and the fact that so much is unknown. This story is REAL and Jared is able to grow, heal, recover and get his “happy ending” even without ever remembering. I feel that Colette did this so well, that you feel for Jared but come to accept his reality and that fact that it’s not a fairy tale and you don’t just wake up one day with all your memories back. I loved the growth and constant learning Jared went through to accept that he would likely never remember and how he adapted to build a new life for himself while grieving the unknown.
Now Ky is a fantastic character, so passionate and caring right from the start. I loved his strength and compassion for Jared without pity. He stands by him with fierce loyalty even through they don’t know each other that long. You can feel the chemistry fly off the page with these two and I loved that Ky always treated Jared as an equal, never less. Their story is a challenging one but its filled with so much compassion, care and love, it made me laugh, cry and fall for these characters as if they were real. I highly recommend the whole series but I think this one is one of my favs now. Truly beautiful!!!

“I tell you what,” Kyrone said. “I’ll jump into the shower and then nip to the corner shop to get us something more substantial and healthier for breakfast. You can take a shower while I’m gone. How does that sound?”
Jared glanced at the pile of their clothes on the floor. He didn’t much fancy putting on dirty, slept-in clothes straight after a shower.
“I need to put some laundry on,” Kyrone said. “So I’ll throw your clothes in too.”
“What am I meant to wear in the meantime?”
“Nothing?” Kyrone asked hopefully. “I don’t mind if you wander around my flat naked.”
Jared laughed and shook his head.
“I’ve got a top you can wear.” Kyrone pursed his lips. “I’m pretty sure my underwear and jeans will swamp you, though.”
“Probably,” Jared agreed.
Kyrone extricated himself from beneath Jared and moved to an oversized chest of drawers. He rummaged through the drawers for a couple of minutes, giving Jared an unobstructed view of the man’s lean back and taut arse. With a small cheer, Kyrone pulled out a huge round-neck jumper with wide stripes in two contrasting shades of grey. It looked too big for Kyrone, let alone Jared.
Kyrone threw it across to him. “That should cover you up.”
“It still feels like you’re trying to hold me hostage for the afternoon,” Jared said in a teasing tone. “I can’t exactly go home, wearing nothing but an oversized jumper.”
Kyrone knelt on the bed, leaning forward onto his hands, his face close to Jared’s. “Do you want to go home?” he asked in a soft, low tone that made Jared shiver.
“Then I don’t see a problem, do you?”
