In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.

Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.

She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

 

 

Well this was a fun romance to read. In the previous book, Adam is nursing a broken heart. His wife, and the only girl he’s ever loved, up and left him a year ago and he’s a shell of the man he used to be. As the book progressed, you saw him interacting more with the world around him. However, just as it started to look like Adam was going to get his life back, his estranged wife showed up thinking they were still married. Apparently, she has amnesia and doesn’t remember her previous life, other than the fact that her and Adam are happily married. This book follows the two of them as they bumble through this new development.

This is sort of a second chance romance as well as a mystery. Since Lucy doesn’t remember leaving Adam, she has a hard time coming to terms with them not being together. On top of that, she starts to learn a bit about the person she used to be before she lost her memory, and she isn’t a fan. The old Lucy seemed to be a bit outspoken and slightly selfish. So, instead of trying to remember everything from her past (her likes/dislikes), Lucy decides to embrace the now. What does she like now, not what she liked back then. She soon finds that her tastes and personality have changed and maybe she’s not the same person she was before. Which always leads back to, why did she leave Adam? What caused her to just up and leave her life. That mystery hangs over the story the entire time.

I rather enjoyed watching Lucy try new things. She kind of reinvents herself and is on a road of self-discovery. Not only that, but her and Adam get to kind of fall in love all over again. There was just something about this story that clicked with me. I was invested the moment Lucy walking into the picture again. I knew we were going to be in for a ride, and I was not disappointed. The next story is the gossip queen, Nikki who apparently comes back from Vegas married to an MMA fighter. So… that should be an interesting story. Ha!
