Publisher's Summary

Waking up in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head is bad. Finding out I have amnesia is far worse. My memory is practically wiped. I don't know why someone wants me dead. Hell, I don't even know my name. They say my name is Christian Cross. Too bad that name means nothing to me.

I haven't forgotten everything, though. Grayson Laurie has always been my kryptonite, and it would take more than a bullet to the brain to forget him. He assures me that I'm imagining the distance between us, but I know better. I just don't know how to fix it. I console myself that at least I've reached rock bottom and things can't get worse...until they do.

My life is a tangled mess of lies and deceit. The more I learn about myself, the less I want to know. I want nothing more than an honest future with Gray, but the past isn't about to let me go without a fight.

Fortunately, I'm starting to realize that fighting is my specialty.

Good Story

The story was good, It had me entranced from word one wondering what was going on. However, the narration did not cause the level of excitement in me that the story called for. In my opinion the performance was sort of lack luster.

Excellent!

Though I hadn't forgotten how good the story was, listening to (new to me), Kai Rubio brought it all back and then some. Loved the narration (did take a little getting used to, because I had an idea of how the characters would sound). Highly recommend.
Looking forward to listening to the sequel!

Good story. Good narration.

This book is a little hard to review without giving away a few good surprises.

I liked the fact that the romance was part of the plot, but not all of it. Christian is trying to figure out what happened before he was shot, and the truth is a bit of a surprise. Solving the puzzle leads to some serious action, and I like how SE Harmon writes the action scenes.

The narration was performed well, and I would listen to more books narrated by Kai Rubio. This was an entertaining read/listen if you are looking for a romance with a bit of a Sci Fi element and some serious action.

Nice plot idea, writing not so great.

I had to speed up the narration to 1.25 because the narrator chose to go for slow and broody, and I just wanted him to get on with the story. The story itself was better as an idea than the execution. It could have been tighter and edited with a view to pulling the listener in. The first half of the book was of Christian in hospital. It went on far too long,then when the pace got faster the book ended on a cliffhanger.

Great premise but underwhelmed me

Christian Cross wakes up in hospital with a gunshot wound to the head and a severe case of amnesia. Gray, the boyfriend he remembers, tells him they split up years ago while Andy, the guy who claims Chris is his current boyfriend, gives him the creeps. As Chris desperately tries to piece together his former life, he soon discovers he doesn’t like the answers to his questions. I loved the premise of this, I love all things SE Harmon and I appreciated this journey into romantic sci-fi thriller. But like other reviewers, the execution did not quite work for me. I had similar issues with the plot holes and inconsistencies but I mainly struggled with the tone. SE Harmon does a great line in snark and wit, but Chris’s wise-cracking cynicism sat awkwardly with the seriousness of his situation and the tragedy of his past. I couldn’t decide whether I was meant to take this seriously or not, so the jokes tended to fall flat or undermine the peril. Audio narrator Kai Rubio voices Chris in a pretty subdued tone and that may have also diminished the way I experienced the jokes and the action. You know those cliffhanger books where it feels like someone just ripped out the last few chapters? That’s what happens here. Luckily at the time of writing this, the second audiobook is already out. I’m loyal to SE Harmon and I’ll hope things gel more in book 2.
