Romance Book Review: PG Forte's Finders Keepers

Author: PG Forte
ISBN: 978-1-62300-089-9
Genre: Sci Fi/ Mystery and Suspense/ Menage/ MM-MF-MFM
Publisher: Loose-id

Emotionally charge futurist novel two people leaving with the grief of losing a partner and another who can't remember who is once was, other than a soldier. 

A year ago Sally's husband died in a work related incident. His partner Aldo, is Sally's best friend. As an undercover cop Aldo meets Caleb. Something about Caleb reminds Aldo of his past, but he can't quite make out what that is. At the same time Sally meets Caleb at her job in the ER. 

Caleb is immediately attracted to Sally, but he's also attracted to Aldo. When Aldo  realizes that the two have met he decides that despite his own desires for Caleb, Caleb is exactly what Sally needs to get through the holidays. Aldo invites both Caleb and Sally to his cabin for the holidays, but once they are there he can't stop thinking that Caleb is so much like his own dead husband and can't help but wonder, especially since Caleb's body has been so surgically changed with nanos and electrodes that Caleb himself can't remember who he is. 

There isn't a whole lot of sci-fi action in this story, except to set the scene of how Caleb can't remember his past. Still, I like the premise behind the story and the well played characters dealing with a complex issue. 

Sometimes finding what you want is the easy part.

Caleb is a bionic soldier with little-to-no memory of his past. He's seeking the truth about himself and those missing memories.

Aldo's an undercover cop who just might have the answers to Caleb's questions. But if Caleb's the man Aldo thinks he is, how can he let him get away a second time?

Then there's Sally; she's an ER physician who used to be married to Aldo's late partner, Davis. Sally's not dealing with widowhood very well. In fact, it's getting harder, every day, just to find a reason to keep getting out of bed. If the truth about the men's shared past comes to light, she could lose them both. Along with her last, best reason to go on living.

This holiday season, chance will bring them together and give them an opportunity to help one another find what they each want most. But every gift comes with a price. And keeping what they've found once they've found it? Yeah, that's gonna be the hard part.
