What’s It All About:
“She can forgive, but can she forget?
Some days, Everly still thinks she sees him. In the food court at the mall, or in a car speeding past as the light changes. It only lasts a second, but when it happens, she slips back to a time when she was ruled-and nearly ruined-by August Kincaid. And it doesn’t matter that she’s moved on, that she’s about to marry another man. In those moments the only thing she can do to regain control is take a deep breath and remind herself that August can’t hurt her-because he’s in a coma. Except that he’s not anymore.
August is awake. With no memories, he sets out to solve the mystery of his lost life. He unearths a photograph of a beautiful redhead named Everly and knows instinctively that she’s the key. But when he finds her, the August she describes is more monster than man.
Tortured by the thought of having hurt her, August wants only to become the man Everly deserves. As the new August emerges, Everly glimpses the person she first fell in love with. But can she trust that this August is real? When the final secret of their shared past is revealed, one of them will make a choice that changes their future forever . . .”

The Best Parts:
Let’s just say that this book has me pissed and excited at the same time. There is so much going on, but there is so much that’s not! Does that make sense, because it does to me! This novel is a roller coaster of awesomeness. Even though August doesn’t remember anything about his past, the fact that Everly and him still have this fighting connections is heartbreaking. She has since moved on with Ryan when August wakes up it shakes everything to its core. Ryan is fighting for his woman, while Everly is trying to avoid August, while August is lost in a world he doesn’t know. I loved this plot line, even when it comes to the characters in consistencies. August is amazing and his role in this novel is phenomenal as he is still aggressive in nature, but with love rather than hate. Ryan is such a lover, but is patient and understands Everly’s need to find out who she is not with August in their lives again. And Everly, oh Everly. She is the craziest of them all. She loves Ryan, and August, but she chooses August, but she gets scared and goes back to Ryan. Like all over the place, but it makes total sense. You are able to see into the minds of these characters and understand why they are doing the things that they are doing.
Now the last thing that I want to mention that I was super happy about it the ending. I was thinking certain things for what happened, and let me tell you how I most of the time get the ending right, but this one, omg no! I was so wrong, but it was so right! I loved the ending to this novel, and that lovely twist, and the fact that August remembers and omg happiness, and the fact that he even still wants Everly and remembers there recent time together. Ugh, I need book two!
The Worst Parts:
I think the beginning started off a little shaky, but it picked up fast and went straight to this awesome story. The way this story is told between August and Everly’s POVs and then with flashback makes the reader know all aspects to what is going on.
Also I must say for August not really know who he is I love that some of his dark roots come back to play. Even though he doesn’t remember being possessive, you still see it when him and Everly are together and you learn to understand that it is a love so strong that can’t be broken. I love possessive alpha males ❤
Buy this damn book, like now. You should have bought it like weeks ago, but seriously amazing. I own a lot of books by J.L. Burg, but this is the first that I have been able to sit down and read, and now I just want to go read every single on of her books lol
