Wait For Me

Against All Odds #1

Katie Alexander woke from a coma, eighteen months ago, with no memory of life with her husband, Jake, and four year old son, Reed. No matter how hard she tries, she remembers nothing of her past, and is forced to rely on Jake for all of her memories. Though she loves her husband something always seemed off, but she convinced herself it was her lack of memories and her illness from the accident, not Jake himself.

Five years ago Ryan Harrison's heart was ripped out when his pregnant wife died in a plane crash. It took years to pick up the pieces and if it weren't for his daughter and being able to burry himself in his pharmaceutical company he would not have survived. Even now, that's all he manages to do. Survive.

When Jake is killed in a plane crash Katie uncovers an awful truth, he lied to her. about everything. With nothing more than the picture of a young girl - who could only be her daughter, one she never knew about - and a set of medical records detailing a three year long comma, Katie sets out to discover the truth about her past and who she really is.

Nothing could prepare Ryan for the woman suddenly standing in front of his house looking exactly like his deceased wife, Annie. And when she tells an incredible tale of memory loss he's destroyed, because no matter how many times he'd dreamed the impossible dream - of her returning to him - he'd never dreamed she wouldn't remember him.

As they search for answers and try to put the pieces of their lives together - because of their children, if no other reason - Ryan has to discover that the woman he loved no longer exists. Katie thought she loved Jake, but it's clear it was built on lies, and so she's terrified that her heart - and soul - recognizes another man she can't remember. Everything Ryan feels for Katie is so much brighter than what he felt for Annie, but Katie is terrified he can't see past the memories of Annie to see her.

Time is running out because someone is doing everything they can to hide the truth of what really happened five years ago. There's a list of dead bodies piling up, and it's clear Katie's name is on that list, but Ryan vows to protect her because he knows he could not survive losing her a second time. As a killer closes in, and Katie learns the awful truth, she has find a way past her memories - or lack of them - to determine if love alone is enough for second chances.

This is a refreshing take on your average - and over used - second chance story. Full of twists and turns, lies and deception, and the ultimate revenge, Wait For Me is a great Romantic/Suspense read.
