When a vicious attack leaves 25-year-old Clementine Johns with no memory, she’s forced to start over. Now she has to figure out who she was and why she made the choices she did – which includes leaving the supposed love of her life, tattoo artist Ed Larsen, only a month before.
Ed can hardly believe it when his ex shows up at his tattoo parlor with no memory of their past, asking about the breakup that nearly destroyed him. The last thing he needs is more heartache, but he can’t seem to let her go again. Should they walk away for good, or does their love deserve a repeat performance?
A female character walks into a tattoo parlor with a few questions. One of the tattoo artists freaks out and goes off on her. Seems they may have had a history, but she didn’t remember any of it. Something tragic has happened to her. There is a scar on her face.
Her name is Clementine. She has lost her memory. She refers to her tragic accident as her death because she has no recollection of it, only waking up in the hospital. The book does jump back and forth between timelines.
She is going out to eat with the tattoo artist she was talking to in the first chapters. We didn’t out the name is Ed, and he knows her pretty well. We found out they had a pretty serious relationship that she broke off but didn’t remember why.
This book is quite sad, but it has its funny moments too. I love how the author added them in. It reminds me of how we take so much for granted with our memories and things we know. Things get steamy as Ed and Clem get to know each other again. I loved seeing their relationship blossom even thru a difficult time.
Clem gets more confident as the weeks pass into her new life. Her relationship and friendships are growing even though she has no memory of before. But reality comes crashing down with attacks that could be directed at her or just random. She does her best to cope but struggles and is a bit jumpy.
Ed, the white king savior, of course always to the rescue, and her new found penchant for being honest is impressive and sometimes hilarious to read.
Things are looking up until they aren’t, but when everything crashes down again, this couple has finally learned to trust each other. Nothing like a surprise to reveal how much you want someone. The end of this book is terrific.
I really enjoyed the funny conversations, the entire story of this book. I loved seeing romance and love explained. The characters were well thought out and fabulous, as well as the plot. It even has certain suspense to it even though it wants at the forefront of the story. Obviously, the relationship and her finding herself was the central part of this book. I love the author’s premise with intense action, then dropping back to a more slow storyline and then ramping up again toward the end of the book. The insert action of comedic conversations thought or unfiltered honesty was a relief in the book. This was one heck of a romance read.
