I really enjoyed this book. I was guessing what was going to happen the whole time. I love a good mystery! There were some very good twists and turns in this book. I would love to read the next book! You should check it out too. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Eliza Ross isn't who people think she is. In fact, Eliza Ross isn't who she thinks she is.

The old saying is that the truth will set you free, but there are some things more compelling than truth. Eliza Ross finds those things in Dmitri Markov, a man sent to plague her--or so she thinks.

Now that I have finished it, I can tell you that the length fit the story. Too many books these days

The relationship on this book makes me think that anything can last forever. But the amnesia doesn't help Eliza become who she is. Can't wait to see who she becomes

I truly enjoyed this book. I could not put it down. There were points when I got angry and points when I cried. It is truly an emotional ride and I cannot wait to see where this story goes.
