Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey – Review

reviewToo Hard to Forget


This time, she’s calling the shots.

Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he’s been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy’s determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she’ll finally be able to move on.

In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.


My Thoughts

This is the third book in the Meet The Clarkson’s series and their ongoing road trip across the country. Peggy wants to make a stop at her alma mater and finally get over her college fling.

This book was surprising in its intensity in this book. Coach Brooks is a very intense guy and full of Catholic guilt about his life. Not gonna lie the intense Catholic guilt and the strong religious overtones in the book made me struggle a little more than I normally would with a Tessa Bailey book, but they weren’t over the top and felt genuine for the character.
Peggy and Elliot have this insanely strong pull towards each other and it made for some super hot, super intense scenes. And the forbidden relationship aspect just added to the drama and intensity of this book.

I really liked Peggy and her caring heart. At the beginning I wasn’t sure of Elliot because of how he treated Peggy, but as he opened up and let go of some of his guilt I really started to enjoy him. This book was definitely a ride I was not prepared for but I am very happy I did. It seems that each book in this series is better than the last and I cannot wait to see how it ends.

I have really enjoyed seeing each of the Clarkson siblings journey in finding themselves and their missing piece so far, but I am dying to get Belmont’s story. I wholeheartedly recommend this series and everything Tessa Bailey writes.

About the Author

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
