I Remember – Julie Cannon

GCLS clean logoI Remember - Julie CannonEmery Barrett is a high powered CEO trying to turn around a global engineering firm that has lost its way. When the stress gets too much she is forced to take leave to recuperate and a cruise seemed like a good option. On board she meets the charming and sexy Dee and their holiday plans suddenly take a turn for their better.

Dee is between jobs, knowing she has a high-powered interview when she gets back she allows herself to enjoy the whirlwind romance. What she could not imagined is turning up at the interview for her dream job and discovering just who her new boss could be.

A tale of passion and romance which will test their professional morals and personal control.


Great plot, unusual twist and wonderful women. Julie Cannon’s latest novel touches on the lives of Lauren and Elliot from “Come and Get Me” but it isn’t
a sequel and stands perfectly well alone.

Ms Cannon creates great characters; it is one of the trademarks of her books. Full of life, passion and integrity they are the women we want to be leading the corporate world. While professional and exemplary at work, however, they lead passionate private lives that, at least sexually, expresses a much more dramatic nature. If this case both have struggled to find their perfect partner and find release in short term affairs which don’t impinge on work but don’t satisfy their hearts.

This plot is a good twist on the usual girl meets girl but something is in the way. While both women have their hang-ups it is their moral integrity that prevents them from moving forward. We see their struggles as they deal with what is obviously a match made in heaven, and each woman reacts differently to the attraction she feels.

We jump back and forwards between Emery and Dana’s lives before the cruise, during and after. So you do need to keep your wits about you to keep track, but it it holds together and has clearly been well scripted as a whole.

Julie Cannon biogThe corporate shenanigans and travel form an interesting backdrop to the romance. We see how sexism and homophobia are not restricted to men, but can cause women to undermine each other out of fear and hate. Clearly drawn from personal experience Ms Cannon’s corporate background give her novels a welcome veracity.

This is an inspired romance with extremely hot sex scenes and delightful passion. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey and hope there will be more books to add to the loose ‘series’ in the future.
