provided by publisher Initially, I had pages and pages of notes on this book And that s a first for me But after taking a few days to settle in my feelings, I ve realized that I can sum it up shortly.
I didn t read the summary carefully, so I went into it thinking the book would be about something totally different I thought it would be 3, maybe 4 characters at the most, and would be something very dramatic and tragic a la The Glass Menagerie I thought the love triangle would be Van in love with her friend, Maxie, and Maxie in love with Isaac Yep, completely wrong.
Moralistically, I couldn t jive with the book If I set aside all of my morals, and what we have learned is the right thing to do in the world, I could enjoy the book at face value But I wasn t able to do that, which caused me to become so emotionally invested in the story that I sent a copy of th This book was graciously bestowed upon me by the fantastic publisher to honestly review Maxie Shannon is a girl with a dark past and a bright future The orphaned dancer turned chef shares an apartment with her best friend turned sister, Savannah Van Seems simple enough, right Wrong Maxie is secretly carrying on an intense, passionate love affair with Van s boyfriend, Isaac Isaac is subjected to a terrible violent attack, causing him to lose his memory of the past year and a half, leading to the love, missteps, and new discoveries that take place within the novel Does Maxie follow her head of her heart Does she choose the one person she s always had or the man she s fallen deeply, madly in love with I was slightly hesitant when picking up this book Don t get me wrong, I not so secretly love chick lit But I tend to be wary of cheesy romances incorporating a man s loss of mem

If cheating is a trigger for you, then this book is not for you books with cheating is not an instant turn off for me It depends on how it s handled in the novel Initially, I was a bothered by the affair due to the fact that Isaac and Maxie had carried on this long term affair under Van s nose But as I read of the story and got to know about Van and Maxie s
