Of all the bars in all the towns in all the world, the stranger walks into Brody Tyler’s. With no memory and a name he chose from a newspaper, Nash is a gamble—one Brody is willing to take. It isn’t long before Brody and Nash fall in love, but then a tragic accident shatters their cozy world, resetting Nash’s memory once again.

The “new” Nash Walker is a businessman with a bottom line, and he doesn’t care what or who gets stomped on. Waking up in a hospital bed after a hit-and-run with no idea where he’s been for the past six months is bad enough, but someone trying to kill him is even worse. Enter Brody Tyler, accidental bodyguard.

Brody’s determined to help Nash remember and bring back the man he loves. Nash thinks Brody’s a drop-dead gorgeous pain in the ass. If only he could remember….

Bar owner Brody Tyler finds a stranger who doesn’t remember who is he is and for some reason, Brody feels responsible for the John Doe. Against the advice of his friends, Brody gives this amnesiac a name, “Nash” and then shelter in his own place. They begin to fall for each other and soon Brody and Nash went from friendship into a cute romance. Then Nash gains back a little of his memory

The romance goes a little wonky here because the sweet stranger becomes a tad of jerk to the man who practically saved him. Nash is revealed to be a ruthless businessman named Nash (Brody picked the name out of a newspaper article) and someone is out to eliminate him.
 Brody appoints himself as Nash’s bodyguard despite not being as effective but it is clear that Brody cares so much for Nash that he was trying.

When Nash gained all his memory back, the book lost some of the steam in the romance department as the plot focuses on who is after Nash and why they want him. Unfortunately, I figured this one out pretty early, so my interest lay with their budding romance. The author seemed to be laying a foundation for a great romance, but then in the middle to end, the romance is stilted because Nash started acting like a jerk. I liked the Nash from the 20% of the book because he was so sweet, guileless and just considerate. I liked Brody a lot but I was unsure why the nameless guy had such a hold on him.

The beginning was the best part of the story for me and when the characters were at their sweetest. I think I was expecting more cohesion and more sweetness throughout the book. Overall, it was a satisfaction audio experience.
