Emma Burke wakes up in hospital bed with no recollection of her past. She learns that she has a loving husband and she’s in the hospital because of a terrible accident. As she starts remembering bits and pieces of her past, Emma realizes that her husband’s version of the past is not entirely true. Not knowing who to trust, Emma is torn between trusting her husband, who is good to her, and the other man she remembers in her flashbacks.
First of all, I’m gonna start by saying that this was one of those books that confuse the hell of readers! I’m not saying this in a bad way!
The first few chapters of this book were amazing.. I was excited and I really wanted to know who Emma is!
But halfway through, I started getting bored.
I was like 60% through, but I still had no idea what was going on and our Emma, wasn’t being very smart in the way she behaved! I found myself rolling my eyes a few times. I mean she has flashbacks and a voice in her head warning her about things, and instead of trusting her flashbacks, she believes the creepy doctor and Mr. Too-Nice Declan!
Now, another thing that annoyed me… now imagine this… Emma woke up in a hospital with no recollection of who she is or anything! Then a few weeks later, she was discharged from hospital with her “husband”. They go home and they… have sex?
This is a woman who woke up to a strange world, a strange man calling himself her husband, I mean… at least wait a little until you get to know the man a bit better? Maybe?
Oh, did I forget to mention the creepy doctor who forces her to have tests and shit? She doesn’t find that weird? She doesn’t find it weird that Declan doesn’t mind her being forced into these weird tests?
Anyway, I liked the ending. What I loved about this book was the very original plot. Seriously, the story is very unique! I’m not sure if I’ll read the second book, but this is definitely an interesting book that offers readers something different. I enjoyed this read regardless and I liked Noah very much!
