But I found that the Jane Lovering books that I have read have refreshingly had a story which involved a romance, rather than so many books which have fumbled a half hearted . If you read them all together, they all have a common theme of broken untouchable personalities finding each other and love conquers but the way they are written excuses the similarities. The stories are all very different in circumstance and the characters (whilst they share Jane's obvious dry sense of humour) are indiviually interesting.
This particular book was a favourite of mine as the story seemed to have an extra level of interest and just when I thought I had finished a twist meant there was a few more chapters to enjoy.
The main character Skye, when the book opens, is not in a very good state psychologically, with emotional and physical scars from a car accident which takes place before the book begins. We quickly learn that Skye has lost a major portion of her memory and she feels she is unable to move on from her accident as she can't remember things about her life that other people take for granted.
Another lead character is Felix, Skyes best friend, he can remember all the little things that Skye cannot and it's clear she leans on him for support. He's built a picture up of her life before the accident, which as the book goes on, might not be the whole truth. I wasn't sure how I felt about Felix, his mask slipped one too many times for my liking. As the book came to a close I felt I had some closure on his character, but not as much as I'd liked as I still couldn't decide whether or not I liked him or should ever have liked him at all.
At the beginning of the book Felix convinces Skye to go from her little house in England to a convention in Nevada for her favourite TV show, 'Fallen Skies' it's here we meet Jack. It's clear from the beginning that Jack has a lot of demons that he's fighting internally. Having also been in a car accident he is instead, trying to force his memories away, whilst Skye is trying desperately to bring hers to the surface. They meet and Skye shines a whole new light on Jacks perception of the world and his demons and in turn he helps Skye start to move forward emotionally.
The book is well written and at the end of the book I couldn't help but feel I just left a major friend in Skye behind. The book not only leaves you feeling happy and warm inside, it really brings forward a new way of looking at the world. If you decide to read this book, you won't be disappointed.
By now I have read all of her books. They are all 10/10.
