Unlike the first book, this one started mid-romance, that of Calla and Nash. It’s been a slow burn for the couple, but Calla feels that she’s finally ready to take the next step with him. And their night together is everything she imagined it would be. The next morning… not so much. What meant everything to Calla means nothing to Nash. He remembers nothing at all about their relationship. But her friends and the seniors at the center she runs are determined to help Nash find his way back to Calla.
The unique way their romance played out, almost in reverse, was fun. At times, it was almost bittersweet as Calla revisits memories that make her realize what she stands to lose if Nash doesn’t remember. It also heightens some deeply personal insecurities, a struggle which many women can relate to.
There are some deep plot lines in this book, some dark moments, which gave the story a lot of depth. And, of course, all kinds of twists and turns!
