Brannon has watched his sisters friend Hannah for ten years always believing she was perhaps too young for him and besides he doesn't do relationships . A frantically charged night between them doesn't change much and Brannon loses that which could be the most precious thing in his world, Hannah. Then the unthinkable happens as Hannah is injured, in a coma and pronounced pregnant! O boy does reality come crashing down on Brannon and he is determined to put right that which he did wrong.
Hannah wakes not knowing who she is or what happened but the gorgeous hunk claiming to be her baby's father does seem very familiar . Brannon is sweet and at times it's like he is courting Hannah but her lack of memory is causing all kinds of problems . The night Hannah got injured a woman was murdered and it's possible Hannah might have seen something but if that's true then there's a killer out there who might just strike again!
I quickly caught up with how this story was playing out and the murdered woman was clearly not the nicest person in town and had more enemies than spots on a Dalmatian! It's quite a slow start and the budding relationship just didn't grab my attention. I did immediately like Hannah as even when in the hospital her inner thoughts are anything but pedantic, she isn't a pushover by any means . Brannon hmm, he is finally stepping up but this couple have to overcome his previous behaviour which won't happen unless either he admits he was a cretin and a coward or Hannah remembers.
What I did like ( although I had to pay attention) was the mysterious killer stalking the town in plain sight. I thought the author did a good job of making him a part of the everyday town folks and yet almost invisible hiding his true agenda. There's clearly a connection to the McKay family and the history of their family is discussed giving this reader all kinds of possibilities to ponder.
It would be remiss of me not to mention that there are quite a few supporting characters all vying for the readers attention . The author clearly enjoys muddying the waters and making her readers get their thinking caps on ! Yes there's lots going on and I strongly suspect who might have a starring role in the next book but for now it's all about Brannon and Hannah.

Brannon is experiencing the worst night of his life – the woman he cares about more than any other is lying in the hospital in the coma from an accident… and she’s pregnant with his baby. He’s desperate for her to wake up, to survive, but also scared she won’t give him the time of day if she does wake. Because only hours before, Brannon threw their relationship away, scared at the prospect of love. But now with the possibility of losing Hannah, Brannon realizes he effed up bad – and wants Hannah to wake so he can make things right between them. But when she does wake… it turns out she can’t remember anything or anyone.
Hannah wakes up in the hospital with no memories, only to find out that she’s pregnant, and what’s worse, her accident might not have been an accident at all. The only thing that’s familiar to her is Brannon, so she leans on him to help her heal, unknowing of their past. Brannon tries to do whatever it takes to make Hannah fall in love with him again so she won’t run when she finds out the truth, but what happens when her memories come back?
I loved this book!!! I felt SO much while reading – Brannon’s regret over his mistake, his desperation to keep Hannah in his life, Hannah’s own confusion and doubts about their relationship as her memories slowly surface. Ahhh, the angst – I absolutely loved it! And the groveling from Brannon was perfect too – he messed up big time, but you can feel his regret and determination to win Hannah’s heart again.
“I love you,” he said again. “It could have happened yesterday. Maybe it happened a year ago—five years ago. It could have happened in the past five minutes. I don’t know. I just know I love you.”
The mystery aspect of the book wasn’t the best, but it was suspenseful, and the author had me curious about who caused Hannah’s accident. The romance was definitely the highlight of the book – it was seriously divine!! It’s not easy for me to find GOOD angsty reads, ones where the hero grovels sufficiently, but this one is perfect. I highly recommend it!
