I am seventeen years old.
I live in Valese, Caberra.
This has become my mantra and my lifeline, having recently lost my memory due to a scary natural disaster.
Yeah. I have amnesia. Messed up, right?
You don't know the half of it.
Not remembering anything has turned my world upside down. My parents try their hardest to “remind” me of who I was, but it doesn't feel right. Or, if what they're saying is true and that really was me, I'm not sure I like that person very much.
And then there’s my love life. Apparently, Gavin Ariastasis is my oldest and best friend in the world. Also, apparently, we’ve never dated. But now, noticing him for what feels like the first time, he’s making my heart do somersaults. He knows me inside and out—the real me. Plus, he’s sexy and charming as hell. Sounds perfect, right?
But then... there’s the new guy. Quinn McKeyen – tall, gorgeous and deliciously American. His mischievous grin and slow Midwestern drawl turn my insides to mush in two seconds flat making me question who I really am and what I really want.
Seriously. What am I supposed to do with all that?! I feel torn between them, but I barely even know who I am, let alone what I want.
I just hope my indecisive heart will clue me in. And sooner rather than later…before I lose what little of my mind that I have left.
Okay, so both this book and it's predecessor were super cute! Both were easy reads. The characters were extremely likable and the setting couldn't be any better in my opinion. Cole's writing is down to earth and funny. I liked this book a bit more, because I liked Mia's snark and how could you go wrong with a super sexy cowboy with two tickets to the gun show (hehe, that wasn't in the book but I could totally see Quinn saying something like that!) I think the books were a little young for my age, with a little bit too much OHMYGOD's.
I also liked the plot to this book a bit more too. Mia suffers memory loss and struggles to remember who she is and who she wants. In the process, she discovers her new self, a perfect mixture between the old and new. There was a certain amount of intrigue, trying to figure out what and when she would remember something.
A totally cute YA contemporary romance!
