Her lips, the way she feels, how she moves against me. Her voice when she laughs, her eyes when she cries. Her soul connected to mine, for better or for worse, for all eternity.
I don’t remember.
A blank face. Unrecognizable. The darkness and impenetrable fog, day after day after day. Who am I? And for that matter, who is she?
I can’t remember.
Two sides to the same coin – one wants to remember, and the other wants to stay
forgotten. Which side will win? Can he trust his heart to bring him back to
her? Or will she stay lost in the fog forever?
I might never remember.
Warning: features adult themes
Have you ever read a book that left your insides raw? Because that is how it felt reading this book.
Jon Doherty and Jayson might have been the same person in a different lifetime. Now Jon is just someone who woke up alone in a hospital with no past memories and no family looking for him. Being prodded and treated like just another broken toy eats at him everyday so he hangs onto the first person who treats him like human, Kitty. He feels happy with her but something always feels missing.
Then one day he comes face to face with his past, Delany, the woman Jayson loved. He cannot remember any of the moments he spent with her. But his body remembers what it feels like to hold her, love her. His insides feel like they are always reaching for Delany, his hearts beats match those of hers. So why can’t he remember loving her?
Jon is torn between is past and present, between Kitty and Delany. It seems he can do nothing right and all of his actions just hurt the people close to him. He might never remember anything about being Jayson so how can he ever be worthy of someone who loved him with all her heart?
I am so in love with this book that I legit had to put my kindle down and walk around my room for fifteen minutes to process everything that happened in this story. I was so heart broken for Jay and the way he lost himself. His struggles and pain made me want to hug him and cry. I adored him as the hot, easy-going and free Jayson but I FUCKING LOVED him as Jon.
Delany, oh my sweet summer child. I am so so proud of her. She was so brave and amazing and all in all a goddamn angel. She is too Pure for this World. *sobbing*
Also, Jon is probably one of my most favourite characters EVER and God I want to re-read this book all over again. I NEED HIM TO BE A REAL LIVE PERSON, mmkay?!
I am one step away from forming a cult for Stylo because that woman needs to know SHE IS THE MOST AMAZING THING that ever happened to me. Her writing is flawless and GOD her stories make my heart ache is the most brilliant way possible. One day I am going to meet her, hug her and never let go.
Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
