Scarlett doesn’t remember anything before the age of five. Her parents say it’s from the trauma of seeing her house burn down, and she accepts the life they’ve created for her without question—until a car accident causes Scarlett to start remembering pieces of an unfamiliar past.
When a new guy moves into town, Scarlett feels an instant spark. But Noah knows the truth of Scarlett’s past, and he’s determined to shield her from it...because Scarlett grew up in a cult called Eternal Light, controlled by her biological parents.
And they want her back.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Ugh. Just ugh.
I quit this book somewhere around the halfway mark, and it’s a wonder I got that far. The premise of the book is just ridiculous. The whole idea is that Scarlet has no memories before the age of 5, and this is supposed to be a big deal. Except, very few people have many, if any, memories before the age of 5. How can this possibly be the basis of an entire story plot?
It just doesn’t make any sense.
But I kept reading, just in case there was something extraordinary. But nope. Just some stupid instalove with a guy whose obviously got some crazy agenda. Yay, I think I’ll pass. I don’t need to read the ending, I really don’t care how it turns out.
