Goodreads:  What if you lost over ten years of your life… and found out you’re single AF, your cat hates you, and your biggest commitment is to Netflix?

I’m Lucy. Out-of-work actress, part-time princess impersonator, Dorito enthusiast. Oh, and I’ve lost my memory.

I got knocked off a bicycle on my way to a children’s party, dressed as Elsa, and accidentally flashed my thong. Now, in my head, it’s 2009 and I’m seventeen years old. Not nearly thirty and starting to wrinkle.

By this stage of my life, I thought I’d be married, with kids and a mortgage. Instead, I’ve got a phone full of dick pics and my longest relationship is with Pinot Grigio. Determined to fill the gaps, I track down ex-boyfriends, friends with benefits and one-night stands. There’s some questionable activity – including a guy with a goatee who fixes fridges, a fling with a man in a Batman costume, and Tony who likes a dance-off.

As I make my way through my contacts list – and try to jog my memory – I can’t help asking: am I allergic to love? Commitment? Men?

And is there a cure?

Kritters Thoughts:  A freak accident - Lucy on a bicycle collided with a bus and while in the hospital her and her sisters come to find out that she has lost all her memory from the last 10 years and they must help her regain it all back.  

The fifth book in a series where each book focused on a different sister in this family.  At the time of reading this book, I had only read the book right before, book four and while I may have missed out on some back history with some of the sisters, it didn't make me feel lost at all while reading this one.  

Before her accident, Lucy was a happily struggling artist trying to pay her bills and enjoying a life with little responsibilities.  After her accident, she is grappling with where her life went and where she now wants her life to go.  I loved how Lucy went back through her past and connected the dots and while she wanted to keep some of the things, she was able to reevaluate and send her life down a different path.  

After finishing this book, I am motivated to read the first three in this series and continue to read Kristen Bailey as she hopefully writes more books with women at the center.  Women who are trying to find their true north whether that be on their own or with a partner by their side.  

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