I am definitely biased when it comes to Colleen Hoover because she's one of my all time favorites. Her writing always has the ability to grab me and haul me into her books and not let go until the very last page. This lovely book was no different. However it was quite interesting reading a collaboration between her and an author who I've never read a book from before. I could tell what parts were Colleen's and what parts were Tarryn's because of that but I could always tell what Tarryn added to the story. It's was like their writing added to each others to make something even more amazing. I don't think I've ever read such a solid collaboration before.
Now for what I loved about the book itself; two words, the mystery. I'm usually one of those impatient readers that spends the whole book watching for any bits of foreshadowing she can get her hands on so that she can figure out what's going to happen ahead of time and while I was looking for foreshadowing with this too I enjoyed the mystery of it more than I ever have any other book. I mean a boy and a girl are in the middle of a class and suddenly they have no memory of anything. No clue whats happened to them. No clue who they are, where they are. They don't know a single thing, not even their own names. It was intriguing from line one. The more you find out about the both of them the more questions you have because the answers never give you the actual answers you want. You have vague moments of realization where you think you might know what's going on but they're never confirmed. And I absolutely loved the romance because it wasn't thrown in your face. It was more subtle. Different from past Colleen Hoover books I've read since romance is a major factor in most of her books. It's definitely for someone who is into a neat little wrapped package of suspense, mystery, the hint of something supernatural, and a tad bit of romance.
Also be warned, you're in for a shocking ending if you pick this up. I was on the edge of my seat by the time I got close to the ending. You'll either want to throw the book and or e-reader or you'll want to fast forward to May 17th and have part two right that second. I for one can't wait for part two and I'm counting down the days.
Another book from Colleen Hoover that I absolutely loved and a great introduction to Tarryn Fisher's writing for me.
