Synopsis:
"Have we met?""Answer: a right hook Because Bryony Morgan pulls no punches. Even when she's very pregnant and facing down the father of her unborn child. She fell for wealthy hotelier Rafael de Luca when he courted her for her beachfront real estate. Then he disappeared. Now, she's in New York for answers--and she won't accept a brush-off. But selective amnesia after a crash has Rafael puzzled. How could he ever forget a combustible beauty like Bryony? Solution: return to the island where they met, and relive the unforgettable nights in question--until he remembers everything...
Excerpt
" Are you saying that we slept together & that I am the father of your baby?" he demanded
She stared wordlessly at him, hurt still crowding viciously into her chest "Are you trying to say we didn't? That I imagined the weeks we spent together or that you left me without a word and never looked back?"
" I don't remember you," he said hoarsely  " I don't remember any of it. You. Us. That." He gestured toward her belly.
He trailed off and something about the bewilderment in his voice made her stop in her tracks. She crossed her arms protectively over he chest & swallowed.
"You don't remember."
He ran a hand through his hair & swore under his breath, " I had an...accident. Several months ago, I don't remember you.  If what you're saying his true, we met during the part of my memory that is a complete blank."
My Review:

This is book one in the newest mini series by author Maya Banks, as Maya is one of my automatic purchase authors, I dived right into the mad dash when I saw that this was being given away at BEA.   Now I need to get the other books because I need to know what happened to the other male characters, their stories sound like they are going to be good,  especially Ryan's story because no way would a sane woman do that, I have to know why, & what is her side of the story...but I digress let's get back to this review.

This was a quick, fast read.  Amnesia?? Even Maya knows it's an overused concept (at least the character says so); however it's well used in this story.  I couldn't help but notice he forgot everything that made him "soft" or "vulnerable". When the story started I wondered why he blocked it out, I just knew something bad had to have happened for him to block the whole experience out.  Clearly even his conscience knew he was pretty awful & was trying to protect him.

I really liked Bryony, she's sassy, & she took no flack from anyone.  Rafe, I both liked & felt sorry for him.   After seeing the movie The Vow & knowing how that took a toll on their relationship I brought those thoughts with me in reading this one & totally felt for Bryony & what she had to go through.

the book is sweet, loving & even though I totally saw what was coming, it's still a good story. It's not too deep but still a good story.  The love making scenes are what sealed the deal for me, they were sweet, raw & engaging & boy even if he didn't consciously know it, he sure showed how much he felt for her when they were alone.

And now a chance for you to read the book yourself. Two lucky winners will receive copies of the book. Just enter below. You can enter everyday until the 28th fo February.
