Khaleef and Danai are engaged and madly in love—until Danai finds evidence of betrayal. Khaleef is driving home when she calls to break off the engagement and tell him not to return home. When his car spirals off the road and crashes, leaving him with a brain injury and amnesia, Danai finds herself torn between the love and the pain she feels.
Having put her career on the backburner, Danai sees the opportunity to get back to her old self and the dreams she had before she fell in love, but she puts her dreams on hold again to help Khaleef recover and attempt to restore his memories. Determined not to jeopardize his recovery, Danai vows to wait until he can handle hearing that their relationship is over. However, as they spend time together, trying to recover memories and building new ones along the way, Danai realizes that their relationship might just be the piece she needs to put together the life of her dreams.
Can she forgive and forget, or will she find herself moving on?
I couldn’t fathom being in the shoes of either main character in this book. Couldn’t imagine my life being flipped upside down, twice, in a matter of minutes and then being left with making life altering decisions. On the flip side, I couldn’t imagine waking up to a life I couldn’t remember and feeling in your gut that the person you’re being told you chose to spend the rest of your life with can’t stomach being near you but is doing everything in their power to care for you. All while trying to piece your life back together mentally. I wanted this couple to win, despite their circumstances. I couldn’t help but root for them. I thoroughly enjoyed this short read from beginning to end. Definitely one I’d recommend.
