School sweethearts, everyone thought that Ginger and Shane were so in love, until he took off to South Africa and refused to contact her. Now suffering from memory loss, Shane feels guilty for pushing Ginger away when she claimed to be his fiancée, and he can't help but feel the tug in his gut when he is around her. Even though he broke her heart, Ginger can't help but want Shane back, particularly when he says and does things that make it clear to her that he loves her; even if he can't remember her.
Shane is one of those characters that has been in the background of his siblings' stories but never actually introduced. With no one quite knowing what was going on with him. It was all revealed in The Billionaire's Forgotten Fiancée! I just found myself feeling a bit sorry for Ginger and Shane, and then feeling very sentimental about how he felt, and then seriously worried that it wouldn't all work out in the end (yes I know that is somewhat silly but still!)
Even though Shane and Ginger had been together for years (over 10!) there were still a lot of hurdles to over come, and the main focus seemed to be on what the reason was for Shane's departure (and eventually his head injury). It certainly added another dynamic, and in dealing with it created some particularly sweet moments (particularly the moment with Lou, a character from one of Nadia Lee's other series! Well I say character...)
The Billionaire's Forgotten Finacée also gave a look in on how the rest of Shane's family were, and it was clear how being in a relationship had benefitted them all (particularly Vanessa). It was interesting seeing how someone that had known the family a long time but wasn't actually a member viewed them, especially considering that these are characters that I've come to know.
This book also got me even more intrigued about Dane. I'm not sure where his story will take him, but I thought it became clearer in this book that he isn't quite the heartless person that everyone thinks he is. Close though!
As always, I've found myself really enjoying Nadia Lee's story!
