Reminders of Her (Requiem for Love #1) by Claudia Y. Burgoa ~ Audiobook Review



Claudia Burgoa

Now available on Audio!

From USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa comes an achingly poignant tale—an exquisite Why Choose? An MMF polyamorous romance told partially in epistolary-style that promises a rollercoaster of emotions, bringing together love, loss, and the unabating pull of the past.

This wasn’t the typical boy meets girl story.

In our case, it was extraordinary: a boy met a girl and another boy.

And he fell madly in love with both.

Greyson was a gifted musician whose songs soothed even the most shattered souls.

Aerin was a ballerina, exuding an elegance that could steal your breath away.

They weren’t just my loves.

They were my reason to breathe—my world.

Until a tragedy broke us into a thousand pieces.

Now, years later, I'm left haunted by Greyson's melodies and the fragmented echoes of our shared past.

Just as I’m learning to breathe again, our history is flung into the public eye.

An agonizingly intimate memoir has surfaced, putting our past on full display.

I find myself drawn to Greyson, desperate to shield him from reminders of her.

As we navigate the stinging wounds of our history, we’re on a mission to find the person who ripped the bandages of our past.

Is there a chance this could lead us to something more—a way to fill the void left by her absence?
Because finding her is impossible… isn’t it?

Reminders of Her is the enthralling first book in the Requiem for Love duet. Prepare yourself for a breathtaking, slow-burn romance that culminates in a heart-stopping cliffhanger.
This novel will leave you gasping, aching, and craving for more.

I will start this review by saying I am extremely glad that I had the second book in the duet on deck so I could jump into it as soon as I finished this one because it ended with a cliffhanger and if I had to wait a few months to get the next book I probably wouldn't have been a happy camper.

Grayson Cooperson Decker and Sanford Bancroft met Aerin Carlton when they were in grade school, and we get to follow their friendship throughout the years in flashbacks but be warned because we also see all the neglect and abuse that Aerin goes through at the hand of her mother who is living her dream of being a Prima Ballerina through her youngest daughter, as well as her sister who is extremely jealous of her.

There is a lot of mystery in this story and quite honestly you have no idea if the romance part of the story is going to feature the three of them or only the two men for most of the book. I really enjoyed getting to know Grayson and Sanford more through this book since they have been secondary characters in other books, I had at one point thought Sanford would be with Mika, but I was sooo wrong on that and I couldn't be happier about it either.

I listened to this in audiobook format and it was fabulous, the narrators Erin Mallon, Aaron Shedlock, Lee Samuels, and Samantha Brentmoor did a wonderful job with bringing Greyson, Sanford, Aerin, and her sister Enya to life. Each one of the authors played their part so well that I was glad that Samantha Brentmoor wasn't in the next book because it meant that the evil sister was gone...sorry Samantha, you did a fantastic job just didn't want her around anymore. LOL

There are several content warnings I will share with you in case any of them are triggers:
Abuse by family members, both parental and sibling (hence the evil sister I mentioned)
Abusive Relationship
Animal Abuse (off page)

Childhood Neglect
Childhood SA (off page)
Death of Parent/Guardian (off page)
Eating Disorder

I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy Slow Burn Romances, Friends to Lovers Romances, Triad/Poly Romances, or New Adult Romances.

Happy Reading or Listening!!!
