Kady wakes up in a Boston Hospital.

She doesn't know who the hot guy with the Irish accent is, who is sitting at her bed.

But he's not her boyfriend Liam. That much she knows. But that's basically all she knows - the last 3 years have been wiped from her memory.

Liam takes her home. A home that she doesen't know. It's not their small apartment in her beloved neighborhood anymore - it's a big house in a weird quiet neighborhood with overly nosey neighbors.

Weirdest thing of all?? She's not wor

There isn't an author out there who fails to fall in love with his/her characters. You spend every waking and sleeping minute with them so me writing a review on my own work may seem a little biased.

Despite that, I just wanted to take a moment to inform you that, Seeking Nirvana is entirely different from my debut. I have had so much fun experimenting with my writing, and different foundations which relationships are built on. In writing this story, a line which has been the topic of controversy

This book follows Kady, we meet her when she has just woken up from a 4 day coma in hospital. She had a bad car accident, and she wakes up and has lost 3 years worth of memories.

Right away I am transported into a passionate plea in a hospital room then next someone's battle to wake up. Interesting to say the least this has caught my attention right away and the many possibilities this author trigged in my mind so sit down I do to see where this author will take me.

In Seeking Nirvana, we are introduced to Kady, a 27 year old girl that wakes up after four days in a coma, realizing she has lost 3 years of her life. Awaking to Liam and a handsome man named Walker, Kady has no idea what is going on. When asked what the last thing she remembered was, it was when she was 24 and in a totally different place in her life. Kady was a dancer at Red Velvet, had a fantastic boyfriend Liam and her gal pal Liv. Who after one scene in the book, I don't see how Kady even c ...more

Have you read this yet?
Bloody hell, if you haven't you definitely need to bump it up on your TBR and make sure that it's the next book you read.

Seeking Nirvana was an absolute pleasure to read. I was captivated right from the very first page. Be warned, you will get goosebumps throughout.

First we meet Kady when she has just woken from a coma and lost three years of her life... Just like that, all of the memories that she made within those three years have vanished.

I am sat shaking and crying at the end of Seeking Nirvana. Part of me wants to pick up Eluding Nirvana straight away, but another part of me feels so torn apart that I cannot form a coherent thought.
I identify with Kady on a personal level, although I've never had amnesia, I have suffered the way she has from traumatic experiences at the hands of a so-called "loved one".
I even identify with the connection she has with Walker. I completely understand it from a personal point of view.

Honestly? I didn't know what to expect going into this - the title isn't a giveaway, like lots of books out there, and the cover has an air of intrigue and mystery that continues throughout the story.

I'm so glad I came across this author, as this book was brilliant.

Kady can't remember, waking up in a hospital bed, with a strange man sitting beside her kady should feel worried but she don't. Walker is something, with his brooding good looks. But who is he and why is he sitting next to her bed.

What kady is more concerned with is the last three years that are lost to her.

Imagine waking up in the hospital and not knowing how you got there. The last thing Kady remember is celebrating her 24th birthday. She is frustrated and confused that she doesn’t remember anything from that time. Her boyfriend or the man she remember being her boyfriend she there but so is another man Walker. When she is released Liam takes her home on the way he shows her the business she owns. The only problem is that he takes her home in a car she doesn’t remember buying, to a bakery when sh ...more

Can u imagine waking up and remembering nothing off the last 3 years if your life?
That's what happens to Kady she has no recollection of the past 3 years, she wakes up to find her "boyfriend" Liam and a tall sexy hunk of man Walker From what she remember she still with Liam and that's that. But not all is as Liam says it it.
After spending time alone with walker she knows she feels something for him but just can't quite figure out what IT is.

Seeking Nirvana by V.L. Brock is a dark and twisted story about Kady and her boyfriend Liam with a mystery Irishmen named Walker thrown into the mix. At the beginning of the story we discover that Kady has been in some sort of accident and has no memory of the past three years of her life. Going through the motions of trying to remember her new life that she knows nothing about her feels disconnected for her life and family around her. Kady discovers the things the Liam is lying to h

When this book starts Kady has just woken up from a coma and she can't remember anything that has happened in the last 3 years. The only people by her side is her boyfriend Liam and a sexy Irish stranger named Walker. My heart broke for Kady as she struggles to remember who she is and why things around her seem so off. I had so many questions running thru my own head while I was reading this book.....who exactly is Walker and why does he seem so protective over Kady? Why is Liam acting so strang ...more

I always find it hard to read a book when I know the author because I will be honest with what I think of it. I can't award stars for being friends, that's just who I am. Therefore I was nervous to start this good friends book. I needn't have been. From the opening pages of Kady discovering she has lost a few years from her memory, and the mystery of boyfriend Liam and the hotness that is Walker, I was hooked. This is part of a series of three books, so I knew I wouldn't get all the answers. V l ...more

While the story does continue in the next book, which I normally don't like (LOL) this story is amazing and worth going back for more. I'm on to book two to see what demons will be exposed.

I was really looking forward to reading this series. The blurb sounded amazing and exactly what I loved to read. I read the reviews before deciding to read this series and the reviews for this series was very good so I was looking forward to reading this book.
As soon as I started this book, I was hooked. It sucked me in completly and I wanted to know more and more, and that was only the first chapter.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Once I received the books, I was warned they were dark reads which intrigued me as I enjoy books with dark and slightly taboo subjects (there are some limits that I will NOT breach).

The opening chapter sucked me right into the story. Why was she in a coma? When was she going to wake up? I needed to know. The following chapters were confusing, but in the way that the reader is just as confused as the main character o

Suspenseful and Addictive

Seeking Nirvana, the first instalment in the Dark Evoke series is a dark romantic thriller par excellence. After waking up from a coma following a car accident Kady, the heroine, suffering from amnesia desperately seeks to remember what happened during the last three years of her life and struggles to come to terms with the present. Told in the first person, from Kady’s POV, I thought that the novel was expertly crafted.

OH WOW this was one of those mind screw , frustrating books that every time you think you know what is going on you end up questioning yourself !! I give credit to this author because this story has no resolve and that is always a risk , I myself love the cliffhanger frustrating stories but not everyone is happy with that !! I am thrilled to be able to start book 2 right away and am hoping for answers or some kind of hint to the truth !!

I received this book as an ARC for a honest review.

The author pulls you in and keeps you locked in the story from the first chapter. I envisioned myself as Kady Jenson because in a wonderful soul searching way, I needed answers too. That is what the author provides for you. You become Kady- the woman who has lost her memory on a quest for answers.

What I found so intriguing about this book is that the author doesn't give much away but enough to keep you interested. She delivers twists like a car

When I first started this book I was sucked in by the story line so much so that I could not stop reading. HOWEVER....the further into the book the more agitated I became with the characters.

Kady wakes up in the hospital with no memory of the past 3 years. Ok I can handle that. When she wakes there is a Irish man standing vigil at her bedside, Wonderful! Then she asks for Liam, the boyfriend, ok great story coming! Thats what I thought.

Kady wakes up from an accident with not just days or months of memories missing but years. Who can she trust when she's missing such vital information?

I am giving this a 4 out of 5 stars. Why not 5? I feel that this ends in a cliffhanger that I was not expecting. Does Kady regain her memory? Kady wakes up in the hospital, and is told that she was in an accident but it is not clear what type of accident that she was in, although we can get the idea that it was not a car accident towards the end of the novel. Kady has lost 3 years of her life. She's torn between Liam and Walker. Liam is acting throughout the book as he is full of anger, which Ka ...more
