I am amazed at how Darynda continues to keep her books sweet, funny, full of love yet heartbreaking and jaw-droppingly good. Each installment just as good if not better. This series is a must read!!!

You can take her memory away, but Charley will always be Charley even if she goes by Janey Doerr now. Living in a small town with her memory wiped out, Charley is still funny to the core, smart mouthed and the ability to attract trouble stays the same. Trying to make sense of her supernatural abilities was outright hilarious. But she’s not quite alone, I love that the people she loves including UB, now known as Bobert, Cookie, Garrette, and even Osh were there for her even if she didn’t know it. They weren’t always forthcoming of who they were and Charley’s interpretation of their lies was quite interesting. What broke my heart is Reyes inability to express his love for Charley.

Of course there’s still a mystery to be solved, the detective in Charley won’t let her ignore it. There’s a crime that’s being done? Charley is on it to save the day.  There’s also the case of her current status.  Who she truly is and if she belongs in this realm or another is not necessarily her choice at this time. Her life, again is in danger, and so much is at stake, but Reyes will do anything to keep her safe. His love and loyalty for her are truly out if this world…a perfect alpha hero.

This book gave me a chance to appreciate Charley’s beginnings. From her earliest memories up to her current situation.  I’ll be honest that a couple of scenes had me teary eyed. It’s not always fun and games; she’s had a tough life. Darynda has done such a magnificent job telling her story.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

I agree. Even losing her memories, she is still Charley. This one left me eager for the next book.
