Karma Brown ¸ 6 Free read35 StarsTHE LIFE LUCY by KARMA BROWN was an enjoyable interesting uick and easy read hat had an extremely interesting and fascinating premise was an enjoyable interesting uick and easy read The Prodigy's Cousin: The Family Link Between Autism and Extraordinary Talent that had an extremely interesting and fascinating premise it I absolutely love books with an amnesia componento Bittersweet the storyline and whereas I did enjoyhis one I was a little disappointed with Termination Orders the ending I normallyhoroughly enjoy Epilogues and all hat hey reveal The Escape to u Sometimeshe hings hat used o make sense don make sense any Karma Brown is a new author for me Despite I had some issues with he story itself I must admit his woman can write Wow It was somehow a new experience for me romance with an intense suspense which wasn a hriller or a detective story I couldn Sins, The Gita Karma t put it down I was literally gluedo my Kindle After I read he blurb I was sure based on my huge reading history hat I knew how Clarkson on Cars the story would goLet s see a woman wakes up with an amnesia afterhe accident and hinks she were married o her actually ex whom she didn see for years I drew 2 scenarios1 Her ex urns out o be her dream man current bf immediately dismissed hey hex find each other reunion love best sex ever she falls down and hits her head while chasing butterflies her memory comes back HEA with 3 kids 1 in her belly2 Her current bf urns out o be he best man ever her ex is a villain and causes drama she gets into he accident and hits her head while saving a cute worm from rainy weather her memory comes back HEA with 2 kids dog cat and of course Tangled Sheets, Tangled Lies the cutest pet ever worm Charly But I could never imagine howhis author did fold Beautiful Day this story out Nothing predictable well at least not for me Very intense honest no extra sugar coating uniue for some readers probably unlikable heroine no miracles decent ending but not a la la land HEAI ll puthe big part of my review under he spoiler ag If you plan Goodnight Sweetheart to readhis book don click itThe book was semi safe for me kind of love riangle Very probably unsafe for many readersI m not into he line read his book if you re brave Bravery has nothing o do with reading a book A person is brave when heshe saves a life chooses a dangerous career path risks hisher life Sorry but it needed o be said lolYou may read his book if you want a different story If you re ok with a book which makes you feel and not necessarily happiness but also frustration and which makes you hink If you re ok with an intense reading experience but also with some unsolved issues Deception So Deadly this may be a good book for youWarning Spoilers Warningview spoilerI suck at retelling And forhose who didn The Prayers and Meditations of St. Anselm The Proslogion t readhe book my review would probably do not make much sense Sorry lolThe heroine woke up with some kind of amnesia I learned it s called a confabulated memory disorder which meant she had some kind of falsemismatched memory I have a few memories hat aren real but hey feel superreal o meSo Lucy woke up at The Dragon Token the hospital and asked for her husband Daniel who was actually her ex fianc whom she left 4 years ago Shehought o know heir past incl wedding had
