Goodreads: Waking up with a strange man is scary. Realizing you lost fifteen years of your life overnight? That's terrifying. With her memories from seventeen to thirty-two gone, Kate has no idea who she is and where she belongs. As she begins to fall for the man who found her, she wonders if she forgot those years for a reason. Should she keep trying to retrieve her original self, or start a new life?

Kritters Thoughts:  Have you seen the movie 13 Going on 30, well this book starts quite close to the main theme - missing out on a few years and now trying to live in a whole 'nother world.  The comedy of someone waking up and missing out on 15 years and going from a world with very little technology to our world of tweeting, iphones and internet was very fun to read.  This is where the story begins, but it ends in a different spot - and I am all the more glad for it!

With twists and turns, this book ended up being much more than I thought it would be and I enjoyed the deeper story that was beyond her losing her memories.  Kate, the main character, has two men who are trying to help her find her memories and make new ones.  She is trying to unlock the past to find out why she has such a strained relationship with one of the men.  This review may sound general, but there are some great aspects of this book that I just don't want to spoil, so I don't want to be too wordy in my review.    

A perfect chick lit read for the new year to remind us to keep our memories close because they can be easily lost.  I would definitely recommend this book to all my readers who love a great chick lit with a little love triangle action.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from the author.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.


  1. This one is new to me, but it sounds really good. I like the premise of waking up to a technology filled world.

  2. Thank you so much for your review! It's a tricky book in terms of not giving away too much, isn't it? I had the same issue writing the book description. :)
