"My dearest grand-daughter, Listen to your heart, believe in a brighter tomorrow, and always, always leave room for dessert."

Noelle Olsen has never been impulsive, but when she inherits the old family bed and breakfast, she surprises everyone by quitting her corporate job and starting over in Beachwood Bay: the sleepy coastal town that’s home to old memories, new friends — and the one man she never saw coming.

Ash Callahan isn’t looking for love. He’s built his real-estate empire out of discipline, control, and cool logic — so why does one kiss from a carefree stranger send his world tilting off its axis?

Their connection is undeniable; the chemistry, impossible to ignore. But just as Noelle considers opening her heart again, the pair find themselves facing off over the town’s future — and their own. With so much as stake, will they find a way to bridge the divide, and build a love that’s unforgettable?

 

 

Well... This is the end of the line in the beloved Beachwood Bay/Callahan series. Unforgettable is like a farewell, and what a beautiful send off it was.I got all teary-eyed finishing it, and again while writing this review. I might have a binge reread of this series soon.

 

This series really is unforgettable, and they saved the ever-busy-body Ash for last. Ash finally gets his story in Unforgettable, and each couple we've met in the previous books got a chance to share a snippet of their story during a special occasion in the epilogue. That was a nice treat; It filled me with happy tears. And our first favorite couple that started it all, Juliet and Emerson, plays a big role in this one. She's made more than one or two cameos that is sure to make the fans happy. I just want to add that I so called that ending since that little note before the beginning of Unmasked, and it is about freaking time!!! Can we get a little more in the near future after that little tease? ;) Tegan, Brit and Alicia have pretty big roles in this one as well, and it was such a joy to seem them again and have them all together.

 

I remember when it all started, in Untouched and Unbroken, with Juliet and Emerson, a couple of years ago. I downloaded the prequel novella on a whim when it was free on Amazon, and just kept going from there. It was one of the first New Adult book(s) that got me into NA in the first place. We've met so many people, lost some, gained love and friends and family, learned a handful of lessons over the years. Now it's come to an end. Saying goodbye right now is bittersweet.

 

Thank you, Melody Grace, for having me part of the arc team...It was like becoming a part of the Beachwood Bay family. Thank you for introducing such a tight-knit group of wonderful characters. Beachwood Bay sounds so lush every time I read each book -- Feel free to transport me there. Farewell, Beachwood Bay, it's been quite a wild, swoony and heart-felt ride. Rest in peace to those we have lost --Juliet's mom, Noelle's Nana, the Callahan's parents, Dex and Tegan's former bandmate/friend... You'd all be proud of them today.
