My Rating:


What if you had the chance to start again…but only if you promised never to look back? Samantha is popular, rich, and seemed to have it all…until the night she and her best ‘frenemy’ Cassie disappeared and only Sammy resurfaced, with no recollection of who she is or what happened. Sammy’s a stranger in her own life – a life she no longer wants any part of. Losing her memory is a chance to start again. Then Sammy begins receiving mysterious notes warning her about that night, urging her to not look back. But she can’t let it go. As she starts poking around in her past she begins to remember…and something sinister begins to surface.


We were joined by the secret of that night, a memory I couldn’t reach.

When a book has a major twist and you need to put it down to gather yourself because your mind is absolutely blown. Ugh. What an incredible book! Fast-paced, brilliantly well-written, and with an ending that surprises. This book kind of reminded me of Mara Dyer trilogy and CoHo’s Never Never but sure thing, they are very different stories but all at the same time, equally astounding.

What I love about this book is that it’s totally unpredictable. While reading it I found myself guessing who the culprit behind the crime is but then in the end it turned out that my guesses were wrong. This is such an impressive mystery thriller and I very much admire Jennnifer Armentrout for delivering a masterpiece. Whoa!

If you are a fan of thriller and mystery books with a touch of romance, this book is for you. Highly recommended!

Rating: 5 freaking stars!
