Repeat by Kylie Scott
When a vicious attack leaves 25-year-old Clementine Johns with no memory, she’s forced to start over. Now she has to figure out who she was and why she made the choices she did – which includes leaving the supposed love of her life, tattoo artist Ed Larsen, only a month before.
Ed can hardly believe it when his ex shows up at his tattoo parlor with no memory of their past, asking about the breakup that nearly destroyed him. The last thing he needs is more heartache, but he can’t seem to let her go again. Should they walk away for good, or does their love deserve a repeat performance?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve read books by this author before. I loved the Dive Bar series, as well as the Stage Dive series. But this book is on a whole different level. This book is one of those that make you think, “OMG what would I do if that happened?!?” It literally sent chills up and down my spine, as I read this story. It was so good, I read this book in one sitting, with no breaks. I could not put it down, for anything.
What would you do if your entire past was erased, and nothing makes sense. How would you act if you know nothing about yourself; not your favorite color, your favorite food, or even how it feels to love someone. That is what Clementine is facing in her life. The victim of a horrific assault, she has amnesia, and is having to rebuild her life from nothing. But there are things about her past that she needs to know, to make the now successful. Things her sister is protecting her from. Mostly revolving around her ex, Ed, and their relationship.
While this book was very thought provoking, it also had a sense of mystery to it, and was very much a second chance romance. While the book focused on Clem’s journey to “find” who she is in this new incarnation of herself, there is also the romance aspect between her and Ed. I will say, there was still an undeniable connection between them, even when I thought there was absolutely no way on earth that they could make a go of it. I love romance, there is no denying that, but this book had enough action, enough drama, to pull me in and not let me go. It was definitely one I will recommend!
