I. Remember. Everything.
Only now I wish I didn't.
When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.
But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I'm more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King's bed.
Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.
I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.
I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.
He's already saved me in more ways than one. Now it's my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.
Even if that means marrying someone else...
Honestly, I disliked this book for multiple reasons. Very little worked for me from the setup from book 1 to the revelation of who Doe was. I enjoy twists and turns as much as anyone but here the twists was just unbelievable.
It was just a huge disappointment.
In this sequel, Doe has returned to her life as Ramie Price, even though she doesn’t remember herself that way. She tries to jog her memory by talking to those around her but nothing fits. In her old life, she had a son Samuel, a boyfriend Tanner and rich parents. In her new life, she had King and his tattoo pallor complete with his outlaws. Doe/Ramie begins piecing together the circumstances of her disappearance and how she ended up on the streets. This is where the chicken flew the coop for me.
First, I don’t even get the chemistry between Doe and King, but I will roll with it. Second, Doe-Ramie’s relationship with her baby daddy Tanner as well as her best friend could have only transpired the way it did, if Doe-Ramie was completely clueless and self-centered. How can one be so oblivious to her friends to miss all of that? Seriously? The explanation for the behaviors didn’t jive with me. Third, a senator’s house was so easily breached by all and sunder for continual nookie? What role did Tanner’s parent’s play in all of this? Did Doe-Ramie not have any other friends? The only part of this story that made sense was the part involving King’s comrade Bear.
That fit with what occurred in book 1. That was gruesome but it set up a compelling book.
The mystery of what happened to her and why was so far-fetched that I couldn’t believe this series went this route. I felt like being with Doe made King seem weak and I don’t see what she brought to the table at all. I felt really disappointed with this book but will read book 3.
