“You’re gorgeous. Even better looking than the day I fell in love with you.”
The words are a constant reminder of what true love is. Olivia Dawson’s alarm goes off at the same time every day and she disappears into her room to hear Duncan’s voice, see his face, miss him even more for being untouchable. Olivia loves with her entire heart, and her love for Duncan is unmatched, but there’s something about her new roommate she just can’t seem to ignore—no matter how hard she tries.
“I miss you so much.”
“Can’t be more than I miss you.”
The words are a constant reminder of how unavailable Olivia is, and Bryson Daniels isn’t one for competition off the baseball field, but since the moment he knocked on the door to his new apartment and his roommate “Ollie” wasn’t who he expected, he can’t help but consider bending a few of his rules—even if it means heeding to Olivia’s.
“I love you, sweet cheeks. Chat with you later?”
Bryson hears the conversations through the paper thin walls, but there’s a pain inside Olivia he can’t seem to walk away from. He vows to be there for her when the voice on the other side of the computer inevitably breaks her heart, but will he ever be able to compete with someone who’s more than a memory?

I may need my own Bryson. Is there a factory that puts out mega hot sensitive guys? Being a baseball player isn't a requirement but the physique is a definite plus!
You may have gathered from my spontaneous lusting that Bryson is indeed, extra hot. He is patient, kind, and a saint compared to most boys his age.
More Than A Memory is a tragic romance that will warm your heart. Ollie lives in an isolated bubble of misery. She's forced to take on a roommate. Who knew she would hate the changes he forces so much?...Ok, well anyone would guess it, true. But Ollie, didn't- so there!
Ollie didn't see him coming. She may have watched him go though- seriously, dude is a collegiate baseball player, who wouldn't watch that walk away. That is until him walking away hurt her too much.
I wanted to hug them all through this story. So many affected by the changes in Ollie...so much despair. Loss of hope. The situation is tragic but life goes on...for some. Others just exist.
It's a heart warming story.
