I keep reading and rereading this book. I can't stop. For some crazy reason, with each reread, I find new things. More Wyatt. More memories. More crazy. I love it. And without giving away the story or telling you too much, I will leave it at this: Farewell Apathy is one of those books that will fuck with you. Matters of the mind are always sketchy, and Jenn doesn't hold back.

This is the first book I've read by this author, but it isn't my last. Jenn Hype has a new loyal fan.

I sobbed, I pulled at my hair, I shouted, I laughed and sobbed again.. In all my years of reading, a book has never... and I mean never, affected me so much!
I love the fact that Jenn Hype is an extremely versatile writer and can literally write anything, this book is such a contrast to her others.
The twists and turns are exceptional, leaving me wanting more after every page.
I read the whole of this book in a mere few hours.
I don't want to give anything away so I'm struggling with my words.

This book is a definite must read! I'm pretty sure I was cursing and threatening the author more then a few times while reading it, both literally and figuratively. The story leaves you guessing at every turn about what's really going on and who the good and bad guys are. I loved Wyatt so much but felt such heart ache for some other characters that I can't mention! you'll understand when you read it yourself! Brailey was a great main character. She wasn't whiny and didn't complain about what hap ...more

I absolutely LOVE this author's books, so, of course I'm excited anytime she releases a new one! Honestly, NOTHING could have prepared me for this level of AWESOME! Brailey wakes up as a patient in Mayford Mental Institution with no memories of her life, nor how she came to be there. She's alone in the world with no family left to help her remember, so she's basically starting life all over again. Mark, her friend turned psychiatrist, set her up in an apartment, and when she gets there, her new ...more

Farewell Apathy by Jenn Hype is a nicely constructed, if rather standard, example of romantic suspense with some interesting plot twists throughout! Ms. Hype includes all the requisite characters: the funny friend; the sexy, yet mysterious male and that other sexy guy! (Because, let's face it, it's no fun unless there are two!) Her heroine has a snappy attitude which shines through in her sarcastic dialogue. I think readers of this genre will find her manner humorous, but not to the point where ...more

Favorite Quotes:

Anger, fear and confusion team up with each other and throw a tantrum.

She practically skips in his direction, looking at him like he's been dipped in chocolate and she's got a craving for something sweet.

I swear, it's always the damn quiet ones that are truly batshit. They bottle up all their crazy so much that they just fly right past that grey area and straight into crazy town at the drop of a hat.

There are a lot of words I can use in describing Jenn Hype's newest Masterpiece: Sarcastic of course, because although she tried her hardest to keep it out, it still comes through and aren't we glad that it does? Because, what is a Hype book without that piece of herself? Twisting, because at times you aren't going to know which way is up or or out....and that can be dangerous when dealing with Mayford. Emotional, because yeah it's gonna take you there. It's a definite departure from h ...more

I had the pleasure of reading this book as a beta. I was already familiar with Jenn's work, because I read the first two books in her Pretending Series and LOVED them. I love the humor and the sarcastic sense of humor (much like my own). So when I was given the chance to read this book, I jumped on the chance. Who wouldn't?

This book was different from her Pretending Series but just as good. I won't repeat what the book is about because you can read the blurb for yourself. But you have twists and

The teasers intrigued me, but I had no idea. Poor Brailey wakes up with no memory, and throughout the story, the author throws you little clues that end up making you distrust everyone she meets. Even when you think you've figured it out, you haven't. Right up until the last second, you're left with your jaw on the floor. The romance Brailey unexpectedly encounters is filled with tension, unease, yet completely endearing. When you're finished, you can only hope that the author will continue with ...more

I am beside myself. I read an advance copy of Farewell Apathy... I really am having a hard time putting my feelings into words. Jenn Hype really poured a whole lot of emotion into this book. I literally sat on the edge of my seat during some of the parts. It's a whole different side of Jenn from her Pretending series. It's more serious, but still so amazing. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book, and I will be buying it in paperback once it's released.

** Review by Gayle at BFDU **

Imagine this for just a minute.

You awaken.
Your head is pounding.
Your vision blurred, unclear.
Your mouth feels like it’s been filled with cotton balls it’s that dry.
Your voice barely audible.
You try to move but you can’t.
Your trapped to a cold metal bed.
Your arms and legs are strapped down.
Moving hurts.
And to make it worse.
Someone is there, in the room with you.
You have no idea who he is or where you are.

Omfg that's all I can say. So first off, Brailey loses her memories after her house burns down and it's time she starts over.

Farewell Apathy by Jenn Hype is one of those books that you can’t stop reading.
Brailey awakens one day and can't help the pain she feels. Her head is pounding, vision unclear, mouth feels as if she’s swallowed cotton balls. As she tries to move she realizes that she is strapped down to a bed. She hears someone speaking and can't help but wonder who it is. She asks herself where is she? Why can’t she remember anything?
We meet Mark. He releases her and explains how she’s at the Mayford

Rebecca's 4 Star Review
This was my first book by this author. I really liked the characters in this story. Wyatt is super hot, playful, protective, and cocky. I enjoyed He and Brailey and their Forbidden Attraction is hot and hilarious. There is plenty of mystery with twists and turns. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that I would have liked to know more about the central idea behind the plot. It left me with questions. But you never know there may be a book two that will expla

I do not even know where to start with this book! It gripped me from the first page. It was like a mystery that needed solving. It felt as though you could not trust anyone that Brailey came into contact with. I read this book so quickly because I was hooked. I needed to know everything.

A suspense romance that's a real page turner from beginning to end, keeping you engaged and your mind working in overdrive whilst you try to negotiate your way through the twist and turns and who did what nows. You definitely shouldn't trust anyone !

Brailey suffered a major head trauma and when she wakes she's strapped to a table at her place of work. She has no recollection of her former life and the only clue apparently to her past is Mark ! She somewhat naively without question goes along wit

What do you do when you realize you can’t trust your own memories?

Brailey wakes up terrified, strapped to a table, with no memory of how she got there… or who she is. The only person she can turn to is Mark, her psychiatrist and former co-worker at Mayford Mental Institution. Armed with just the clothes on her back and a cell phone, Brailey attempts to start her life anew. But how can Brailey move on when her nightmares may be a disturbing reality? Who can she trust when she can’t even trust her

I'm a sucker for a suspense-filled mystery. I just love them. Give me one that I don't have completely figured out by 4 chapters in and I am hooked. I started Farewell Apathy as part of a read-along/book discussion and tried really hard to only do assigned chapters but failed. I cheated and read through to the end.

Farewell Apathy opens with our heroine, Brailey strapped to a hospital bed with no memories and being loomed over by a man she doesn't know. Great start and just gets more and more int

I cried, I laughed, and I had to find out what was happening to Brailey and what her story truly was. I absolutely loved this story!

When Brailey wakes up in a mental institution, the only explanation she’s given is that she was injured in a fire and admitted to Mayford Mental Institution to recover. Her “therapist,” Mark, gives her the slightest explanation of her background, without enough detail to jog any memories. In a matter of weeks, Brailey is well enough to leave and move into her new life, where she meets her neighbors, Keegan and Wyatt. Keegan is spunky and draws Brailey out of her shell. Wyatt is mysterious and mo ...more

What's up world - I'm Jenn Hype.

Author, mother, wife, singer/songwriter, aspiring comedian - I wear many hats. Some of them fit, some of them look ridiculous, and all of them are fun. Life's too short to take anything too seriously, so I don't.

Sarcasm is my go-to, especially when it's most inappropriate. Need someone to make an uncomfortable situation even more awkward? I'm the girl for the job.
