I’m asked to review this book. It isn’t my typical read; however, the blurb was interesting enough to encourage me to read the book.
Lexi is a bit of a wreck, struggling with her own issues right out the gate. She seems to have a perfect life, a happy family and kids she cherishes, plus a husband she is crazy about. So this book gets intriguing very fast and includes a quick time jump 7 years in the future without much information for the reader. It seems to be from Lexi’s point of view. This book starts out happy and then goes straight to heartbreaking. As she picks up the pieces of her life and her memories. This book is all about Lexi. Her past comes into play with her future and, of course, her missing memories. This book captivated me at the end edge of my seat for the entire story. I couldn’t believe all the twists and turns, as well as the current events that came about it, were almost surreal.
This author did a great job creating a fictional story that was so emotional. It was tragic and beautiful at the same time. Even with all the memory jumps and emotional chaos, the story is so interesting that I couldn’t put it down. I honestly felt terrible for Lexi in this story. This story probably should include a trigger warning as some readers may struggle to read this. Although the author didn’t go into detail on sensitive subjects, enough of it is implied. This was an emotional read with lots of ups and downs as she remembers the missing years in her life. But, of course, that would not be enough, so the author added current events that were just as tragic as the past.
I have to say I spent the whole book rooting for Lexi to go back with her previous husband before the awful events. The love triangle was well done and explained. But I still wanted Lexis life to pick up where she left off.
When you read this, Beware may find yourself crying through some scenes, slightly confused and definitely disturbed. But overall, it was a fantastic twisted read.
