This is a book that instantly made me want to stand up and take notice, I am a huge Shelly Crane fan the way she is able to tell a story always leave me amazed and I cannot wait to gobble up anything she gives us, even if it means staying up to all hours of the morning like I did with this book . . . I just could not put it down.
"It doesn't matter who you were or what you've done in the past. The only thing that matters is who you are right now."
Emma Walker has woken up from a 6 month coma and has no idea who she is or who the strangers are around her, she is generally confused and bewildered. How could she forget her own life or the people in it? Even more confusing she finds herself wanting to trust the man with the beautiful Hazel eyes who was standing over her when she first opened her eyes.
"You're the girl that I'm falling madly in love with." I felt all the breath leave me. My mouth fell open, but no words escaped. He chuckled. "A speechless Emma. That's really cute."
Emma's parents are overwhelmed at having their daughter awake and all they want is to have her back even if they have to be a little overbearing to get there. You feel for Emma and can get her frustration and the emptiness she must feel. Your hearts will break for her parents in some moment but on others you want to yell at them to take a step back and give Emma a chance to breath and understand herself what is going on.
"Sometimes, knowing when to let go is just as important as knowing when to hold tight."
Emma's friends want her to be something she doesn't remember and there is a huge pressure on her to fit back into her old life like nothing happened but that is more complicated then anyone realizes, Emma is not the person she was and she needs to be given the time and space to work out who she is now without being forced into a mold of her former self.
"The things we should focus on in any life shouldn't be what we've lost, but what we've gained"
Emma also learns that she has a boyfriend, the only problem is she doesn't see how it was possible that she was ever attracted to him in the first place and he appears to be a complete Jerk, she has no feeling towards him and all she can think about is her attraction towards him.
"I want to give you back your first kiss, the one that jerk stole from you. And I want it to be something that even a coma can't make you forget."
Mason is the man with the beautiful hazel eyes and he also happens to be Emma's physical therapist. He is kind and patient and perhaps the only person who Emma can be herself around without any preconceived notions and fear of upsetting anyone else. It also helps that she has something yummy to look at with his dark hair, piercing eyes and tattoo's can you say man candy? he can me swooning throughout the book and I have decided i need my own copy of him at home as soon as possible please and thank you.
"I turned my face to let his nose rub my cheek. "Mason, let's just stay here," I told him breathlessly.
He chuckled, huskily and dangerously. "Oh, no, absolutely not. I'm not to be trusted with you alone right now."
This book has an amazing flow and story line and will keep you on your toes and never wanting to put it down, like all of Shelly's books I wanted and needed more until the very end where I needed a few moments to just gather my thoughts and smile.
5.5/5 well deserved stars!
Emma has this dilemma even though she's assured that her memory may come back over time. Small things may trip her into remembering features of her past life. However when Emma is gradually told about who she was BC she's not entirely sure she wants to be that person again. Arrogant, demanding, a girl with a jock of a boyfriend (who even started dating someone else while she was in said coma), someone who ruled the school with a 'look at me' attitude. I wasn't sure I'd want to be that person either. She doesn't know her parents or siblings, she can't relate to them in any way so while she's in hospital she gets closer to Mason, her physiotherapist who visited her daily during C.
Soon after waking she develops a crush on him only to learn that he has feelings for her too. The story unfolds and what I loved about this book is the way Emma stuck to her guns and didn't give in to her family trying to mold her back into the person she once was. She not daddy's girl any more, in fact he can't stand to be around her because she isn't 'his daughter'. Her mother appeared to love the antics of old Emma, antics that are cringe-worthy. In the end Emma finds no peace within her world except when she's with Mason. Learning about Mason gives her life more meaning and soon she's wrapped in a new world away from the norm.
As we reach the end I actually feel very sorry for Emma. The emotions that Crane brings out are true and very real. Emma suffers right until the end. A great, unique and thought-provoking read.
the story begins with Emma, waking up from a 6 month long coma. She is unaware of what has happened and starts to panic when she wakes and is surrounded by tubes and machines. The only thing that calms her is the young man who was there as she opened her eyes. As she comes round from the meds, she (and her parents)realise that she has absolutely no personal memories of her family, friends, or even her self. She has no idea who the people in her room are that claim to be her parents, but feels close to Mason, the therapist who has been working her muscles for the last 6 months while she was in her coma, and the one who was there as she woke.
Through her rehabilitation, she develops feelings for Mason, but he tries to stay professional, mainly because he knows its unethical as she is a patient, but also because he thinks she is forming the attachment because he was the one that was there when she came round.
Emma has to adjust to her new life, to try and be herself now, and not what her family and friends expect her to be. She doesn't like the person she was (from what she has been told by others) and also tries to build up a new relationship with her parents, who are trying to adjust to her new personality.
Mason is such a sweetheart, he is supportive and there for Emma when she needs him, he is the only one in her life that wants her to be the person she is now while everyone else pushes her to be who she was, and I loved how their relationship developed. My only gripe with this is that it wasnt long enough - I could have read more about Mason!
