Olivia Kaspen has just discovered that her ex-boyfriend, Caleb Drake, has lost his memory. With an already lousy reputation for taking advantage of situations, Olivia must decide how far she is willing to go to get Caleb back. Wrestling to keep her true identity and their sordid past under wraps, Olivia’s greatest obstacle is Caleb’s wicked, new girlfriend; Leah Smith. It is a race to the finish as these two vipers engage in a vicious tug of war to possess a man who no longer remembers them. But, soon enough Olivia must face the consequences of her lies, and in the process discover that sometimes love falls short of redemption.

This book is just so… oh my god what the heck just happened… seriously, that’s what it is like. It sucks you in and before you know it you have no idea which character you love or which character you hate. I mean there is just so much going on, and no one in this book is really doing the right thing, but then again, the characters are just so addictive, it’s like you can’t help yourself you have to know what happens next.

So Olivia is flawed, let’s just acknowledge that going into this. I mean seriously flawed. I love a flawed character (little miss perfect just never appeals to me, I think because I am way more on the flawed side then I am to perfect). Olivia makes some questionable decisions when it comes to Caleb, I mean she doesn’t tell him that she knows him for crying out loud, and really honestly she should have told him. But at the same time, you can see why she didn’t, and you just have to know what it is going to happen. Is Caleb going to find out, is Olivia going to lose everything? What happens next!

So I adored Caleb, I mean you can’t help feel for someone in that situation, I mean he’s lost his memory so you want him to get it back, and then at the same time you also want him and Olivia to be together, so it’s kind of like, well if he gets his memory back they may not end up together, but who knows, it’s all one big giant tightrope. Caleb has a lot going on in his life, and not everything about him is lovable (although I still like the guy).

I loved how Caleb and Olivia interact throughout the book, I mean it just worked. everything just felt like when they were together that that was the way it should be. They have great chemistry and you just want them to be together. Of course there is more than one hiccup in this story, Caleb has someone in his life that is not exactly happy about what is going on with him and Olivia, so let me tell you that situation is going to make you want to pull your hair out.

This book is addictive, dark, the characters are flawed, and everything is just messy. But I loved it. If you are looking for everything to wrap up in a perfect little bow, the this is not your book, but if you want to be taken on a wild ride with some seriously complex and interesting characters, then this is a book you should check out.

About Tarryn Fisher

I would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K. Rowling could do that. Instead, I try to write stories that pull on people’s emotions. I believe that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force. I love villains. Three of my favorites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity (like me). I like to make these personality types the center of my stories.
I love rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm. I hate bad adjectives and the word “smolder”. If you read my book-I love you. If you hate my book-I still love you, but please don’t be mean to me; I’m half badass, half cry baby.
