Summary from Goodreads
Review by Kirthi
Pages: 293

There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four-year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. With her life about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon.

But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people—suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.

My thoughts:
This is my first Jennifer Echols book and I have to say: it was awesome!

Beginning: Simple and sweet, a short slow beginning that leaps off into action. It created a nice image of what to expect later on.

Middle: Omfg. I couldn't stop reading. It wasn't the "I'm-stuck-in-the-super-thrilling-action" it was the "I'm-stuck-in-an-awesome-storyline-with-amazing-romance-and-mystery".

End: A great happy-car-involved ending!

Brandon, to me, is a total, girl-using, sicko jerk who doesn't deserve Zoey. Doug is an abrupt, rude, funny, totall hot and gorgeous character that reminds me of:

  • Valek from Poison Study- demanding; in control; hot
  • Edward from Twilight- demanding; in control; mean
  • Daniel from The Dark Divine- mysterious; emotional; truly cares-person

Can you get a great combination than that?
Overall: A delicious, romantic read that is, haha, unforgettable!
Conclusion: Must read!

(Cover: I don't like the original cover, it's too face-kissy and all, and too faded, so I made my own)
