Alexis doesn’t believe in fairytales. She knows first hand that life can turn on a dime – that one stupid mistake can shatter dreams and irrevocably shape the future. Even though her memory of that day is hazy, she has spent the last ten years trying to put it behind her and focus on the future. 

Armed with the knowledge that her career will be her only legacy, Alexis works night and day to prove that she is more than just her last name. It’s not only that she doesn’t have time for love – she doesn’t have the heart for it. After all, there’s no point in starting something that you can’t finish. 

However, when she meets Adam, she’s drawn to him in a way even she can’t deny. He is dark and brooding and strangely charming. He’s the perfect distraction from the mundane life she’s created for herself. And, as if fate is pushing them together, he seems to be around every corner. It’s enough to almost make her entirely forget about her past and take a chance.

Unfortunately, Adam’s memory isn’t hazy . . . not in the least. And, what she doesn’t remember, he can’t forget. 

My Thoughts:
Alexis moved to New York ten years ago to get away from a memory or lack of one from an accident. Her memory should've came back but never did and was able to get past it. After meeting the handsome and mysterious Adam her memories seem to becoming back in the form of dreams that leave her restless when she wakes.

Adam wasn't expecting to see Alexis after all those years, he knew that she was in the area but just didn't realized how close she's been all this time. He has a plan to get back at her, its simple enough, win her heart then break it. Maybe then she'll pay for what shes done. After getting to know her, he knows he's in over his head. She's a different person from when he seen her last. Now Adam is in too deep and his plan just might ruin everything.

Predictable and enjoyable. This is a book about forgiving, loving and letting things go. Alexis thought she was the only one who was damaged that day but realized there was more to the story then she was lead to believe. I loved that there was more than one point of view, I got to see the conflicting thoughts of Adam and knowing Alexis real feeling about what's going on with her life. I liked that there was a flashback/dream that made the readers understand better about what happened. Little by little you can see the dream getting darker and putting the pieces together to know what happened. I loved all the characters and loved the connection between Alexis and Adam.

From what I know this is the author's first book and did a great job. This book was well-written and not at all what I expect from a new author.  This is great start for this author and I look forwards to seeing what this author comes up with next!

Overall I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend you lovely readers to check it out. 5 of 5 stars!

Jenni Moen lives in her hometown in Oklahoma with her husband and three crazy, exuberant kids that have the potential to burn the house down at any moment.
When she’s not chauffeuring kids around town, performing her mom duties as a short order cook and maid, or vacuuming for her fastidious husband, she hammers away at her keyboard at her big girl job as a patent attorney. While vodka and exercise have provided some relief from the daily grind, it is reading … and now writing … that are her true escapes.
