descriptionThis is actually a pretty cool cover in my opinion. It's a good representation of the story within. Good composition. The typography is eye-catching and interesting. I like the use of the tiny graphics with the tagline as well.description

descriptionUnfortunately, this one ended up just being OK for me. It started out promising but somewhere along the way it got WAY too convoluted and confusing. On top of that, the whole plot (as well as the characters) felt extremely underdeveloped. I didn't feel like we got enough
This didn't do it for me. I've read better amnesia stories. Not enough info was given to really understand why Jax was doing what he was. It was an extreme move to marry some. Apparently there was some kind of financial advantage, but it wasn't clear why he and Amber had to be married for it to happen. Amber didn't question things enough and was way too passive. I didn't give a shit about Xander one way or the other since he had 2 seconds of page time. Seb was the only character I remotely liked ...more

Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be loved, <-- I'm using that word loosely, by a sociopath? Look no further.

I have no idea how to review this book. I'm definitely conflicted, I closed the book with my hands clenched and a smirk on my face. The story plays out like a movie, a web of deceit and obsession. I could not put this book down. I would've like more mystery to Jaxon, but I think that maybe he was meant to scare, yet excite the reader. When everything surfaces, you'll be shaking

2.5-3 stars

The story started really good. Intense and pretty dark, lots of questions that needed answers. Of course Jax was and a jerk who totally creeped me out. As the story goes, I started to dislike Amber, even though I felt sorry for her.

The story was confusing and there were way to many OTT situations that made me question the whole premise of the story. For instance - Amber went back to her house, without any thought that Jax would come for her?? That didn't make sense to me.

I am glad how

I am going through a number of reactions to this book..

But the one that tops the rest is sadness..

This was anything like I have ever read.

It reminded me of a short film I once watched,which was fantastic but I don't remember the name...
And of Nicole Kidman's movie Before I Go To Sleep.

My heart truly rooted for Amber..and I expected this book to have a resolved ending but..the ending was brutal and fantastic..and sad.

The supposed to be hero,Jax, is,well,insanely obsessed with the heroine,Amber,

I’m an amnesiac brood mare who’s marrying a man with a plan that has nothing to do with love and everything to do with money.
That's poor Amber St George. She wakes up in a hospital with no recollection of her past and how she ended up there. By her bedside is her fiancé Dr.Jaxon Ray . He's loving and ferocious, tender and violent, attentive and abusive. She's struggling in the dark blankness of her mind and his bi-polar attitude doesn't help, in fact it confuses her further. He keeps her pumped

At this current moment in time this is a book that I can't finish with I might come back to it at some point. I'm torn between losing interest and the material in the book. On hold @ 29 %. This is me and not the book.

Well well well

I'd like to start out by saying that I was in a book slump until I read this book....

It is full of twists and turns, and it unfolds sort of slowly. You get some info, then a bit more, and then even more. I honestly can't even explain this story to you without ruining it. What I will say is that Jax really wants Amber. Once he gets her, he holds on tight. Really damn tight. This story is full of triggers. From the start to the finish, so I'd keep that in mind.

This story does end on

Steal her mind so he can own her body. Program her to forget then reprogram her as his perfect partner. The plan is foolproof, promising everything he's ever wanted once it's executed. Money. Prestige. Her.

Why? Because when you do

This was an all around ok read. The plot started out good, but ended ok. It got very confusing and choppy towards the end. The explanations was just underwhelming.
The sex was ok. Jax liked to arouse Amber in odd situations that, to me, just did nothing for the hot factor. Jax was just too abusive for me to appreciate any of their sex scenes together. It was like, uhh black eyes don't turn me on. Sorry.
Xander was extremely underdeveloped. You know he's a crucial part in Amber's life, but you basi

Very enjoyable read. Keeps you guessing. Though I could have done w/o the sex. (don't send a mob after me ladies!) It actually took away from the thriller aspect... I think it would have given it more mystery or more suspense. You can't please everyone but I think some fade to black could have actually added to the reading experience. Seems everyone wants to throw sex in your face and that's fine if that's your thing But I don't think this story needed that. It was a great plot and story line It ...more

Amnesia by Kylie Hillman a fab four star read. This is the first book in the Centrifuge series, and it’s a great start it will keep you gripped from cover to cover. It’s a phycological thriller romance and its packed with things that will keep you wondering.

I've read previous books by this author and really enjoyed them. However I found the author took this book to another level. She totally messed with my head. I read this in one sitting and I'm sitting here wondering how I'm gonna put the words to give the book the review it deserves. I know I won't be able to do that so what I will say is if your looking for a psychological thriller with plenty of twists and turns then go 1-click this gem.

I love a good physiological romance so when I saw what this one was about I was so excited! I had to wait a few weeks but I had a feeling it was going to be so worth it! Some times as a reader, I need something that is going to mess with my brain, and this book..... this book had all the making to do just that.

Jaxon was a little crazy I think (snickers). He was very smart but he uses those smarts for evil.

I felt so bad for Amber. This book was amazing at giving us a look at the inside of a woma

There’s a clear warning in the front of the book “This book isn’t suitable for those who do not enjoy dark romance, psychological mind fuckery, and the fact that sometimes the bad guys wins….” I didn’t know if I was into any of those things, but I started reading anyway!
And I am so glad I did!

Amnesia isn’t your typical romance, it’s not hearts, flowers and rainbows - its dark, it’s dirty and it kept me guessing the entire time I was reading. In the end, I had no idea what was going to happen, wh

This is most likely a duet with Amnesia being book 1 and Blood Oath being book 2. I didn't see any other books linked with these.
Amnesia was about Amber waking up with a medically induced amnesia administered by neurologist Jaxon, who had used her to test the serum. This was a psychological thriller with Jaxon being the psychotic character and Jaxon the character who committed a crime. Jaxon's mental state was questionable and unstable yet very little was revealed other than his tendency to phy

Amnesia by Kylie Hillman is a total mind blowing psychological book. It is book one in the series and definitely needs to be read first. When I started this book I went into it blind. So when I started reading this I was just completely shocked and hooked. I felt like the writing is very well done and the characters were so developed etc that it was hard not to like this book. Jax is a total turd and I really hope he gets what's coming in book two. Which I hope I can read soon. Amber… oh poor Am ...more

This is one crazy and insane read. I was totally turned around by the ups and the downs but in a good way. Im not going to lie, this is one fantastic physiological romance/ thriller romance.
Amber has Amnesia and she's not 100% sure the life she's living is hers. She knows something is off but isn’t sure what. Dr. Jaxson Ray has been obsessed with Amber for a very long time- he is in love with her and what he does, well, goes way beyond the standard of ethics or even decency. He has Amber in his

Remember Robin Cook? There were elements to his medical thrillers that always pulled me in, but his execution drove me nuts. I've enjoyed Kylie's MC series but when I saw a Dark Romance (oh how I love me some dark romance, let me count the ways) and a title like AMNESIA?

I got the ARC. I LOVED it. I didn't know what to expect from the blurb - you don't know if the hero is a HERO, you don't know if this is going to be a Happily Ever After (or a TWISTED Happily Ever After) and you walk into this st

Amnesia is the first thrilling instalment in the Centrifuge Duet by Kylie Hillman. This story is quite the psychological thriller- it’s edgy, raw, dark, intense, and twisted! I fell into the wickedly good web that Ms. Hillman spun and couldn’t leave till I had read every word! There were points where I didn’t know if I could keep reading any more- because some parts of the story was quite brutal, violent and creepy- but Ms. Hillman had snared me in this gripping tale and I needed to find

I am really conflicted with my feelings this book.

I did really like Amber and I felt so sorry for her and what she was going through… she is a strong woman and I really liked her but I just felt conflicted that one minute she hated Jax then the next she was all over him I understand that was maybe just the drug he was giving her. I just don’t know.

This book is fantastically written and it is full of things that makes your frustrated, full of anger and sometimes cringing. Amber and Jaxon know each other but not in any friemdly sense and to say what happens is disturbing to say the lea

AMNESIA is a complex, intricate web of deceit, riddles and lies that had me guessing and wondering what the hell was going on from page 1! It is also an intense, dark, romance yet it is unequivocally different from anything else out there!

Dr. Jaxon Roy wants what he wants and he wants it now. With the help of both his and her parents, he has gone to absolutely insane lengths to achieve his goals. The female mc has amnesia and what she does or doesn’t remember will shock you!

What a serious mindf*ck! This story is a psychological thriller at its finest!

Intriguing, deceitful, pompous, arrogant men who will maintain their power by any means necessary. Even at the cost of their families!

Wow just wow! You have to read the story to believe it! The love of money is truly the root of all that is evil!

4 stars!

It had a promising, but repetitive plot. The characters are so underdeveloped. If they were more fleshed out, maybe their actions would've made better sense. Disappointing.

Ok so big time warning of rape. Lets say that is not why this is a 3 star read for me but it was the entire preface of the story. Injections to forget and control ... I don't know.

Jaxon is testing his serum on Amber making sure she forgets. He is a nut job to say the least. Bat shit crazy. The serum he is using was created to help with the memory loss associated with dementia. So ... on to Amber ...

Lordy, Lordy, this book is one crazy mind f*ck! The story line will draw you in from the very beginning and creep into every available crevice within your mind until it is all you can think about it. This isn't one of those book you can put down and come back to later-once you start it you won't be content until you finish it. And guess what? It ends in the mother of all cliffhang

Amnesia ~ An amazing unique storyline that gripped me from start to finish, the thriller storyline is full of twists, hot sexual scenes, brutal violence and will leave your head reeling.

Dr Jaxson Ray has many passions ~ Power, control, money and Amber St. George.
