Her lips, the way she feels, how she moves against me. Her voice when she laughs, her eyes when she cries. Her soul connected to mine, for better or for worse, for all eternity.
I don’t remember.
A blank face. Unrecognizable. The darkness and impenetrable fog, day after day after day. Who am I? And for that matter, who is she?
I can’t remember.
Two sides to the same coin – one wants to remember, and the other wants to stay forgotten. Which side will win? Can he trust his heart to bring him back to her? Or will she stay lost in the fog forever?
I might never remember.

FIVE EXHILARATING STARS*****
In love we trust. What a beautiful and powerful phrase, and the heart of this entire story.
This is the story of a man who wakes up in the hospital with absolutely no memory of who he is. The only thing he knows is that he just woke up and is recovering from a nearly fatal accident. No name, no family, no identity. He tries every day to remember his past, the only pieces of information he has are based on his clothing, appearance and medical history, and those don’t give him much hope. What if he used to be a terrible man, maybe that’s why his brain doesn’t want to remember?
He’s adopted the name of Jon and with the help of his social worker and some kind people from the community he’s trying to rebuild a new life. He’s living his days selflessly, trying to do everything right but he knows something important is missing, his heart remembers something or someone.
One day while out in a restaurant he collides with the powerful feeling of a memory. Her eyes, the woman in front of him, he has no clue who she is, but he remembers vividly how she feels, how his body reacts to her, but nothing else.
Delaney lost the love of her life. Theirs was a toxic kind of love, filled with both good and bad things. A love that was more intense than drugs, and so dangerous that it almost killed them both. Now he is in front of her again, after she searched everywhere without success, he just appears in her life. And he appears so different and yet in her heart he feels the same.
What would you do if you were given a second chance? A clean slate at a new life? Could you forget about everything you left behind? The funny thing is that your mind can forget but, never the heart. The heart always remembers love, it’s simply Muscle Memory.
What an amazing story! Wow, Wow and Wow. This is the reason why I adore Stylo Fatôme’s books, and why she is one of my go-to authors. Because she never disappoints, not only is she a brilliant writer, but her creativity has no bounds. How I wish I could crawl up inside her brain; I bet it’s a fun, exhilarating and scary place. But it’s that creativity and innovation that brings us readers powerful and unique stories such as this one. Stories that make your heart raise and they become tattooed to your soul because you never forget them.
Jay/Jon and Delaney’s love story wasn’t always pretty, it was also dirty and chaotic at times, but to me it was perfect. Their love was fierce, inexplicably deep. It was everything, always and forever.
READ THIS BOOK! please, I beg you, it is sooooooo good.
