NOTICE: 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.

Imagine the worst day of your life. Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?

Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.

So I hid.

Nine months later and I'm getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy.

Healing is that simple, right?


I must've been in the mood to read about MC librarians because I read this one back to back with UnWritten. I found this character, and the plot, much more realistic and written with depth.

Zoe lived through an awful event that has changed who she is forever. As a fellow person with PTSD, I really identified with her unease and flashbacks. Either the author of the book has suffered from PTSD or she's done her research well. Zoe's feelings and actions were very believable and I found that refreshing.

Miles, the adorable love interest, was much more than a hot body. He was sweet and courted Zoe. He wanted to be in her world and have her open up to him. He was honorable but pushed Zoe when she needed a bit of a push.

I also loved that the author used the names Miles & Etta as character names, using the jazz greats as inspiration!

If you're looking for a meaningful new adult read, this is it. I'm eager to check out another novel by Olivia Luck.
