**This review is based on an ARC from Netgalley.  It’s release date was 10/7.

I absolutely adored this story, as I do all books from K.A. Tucker.  The main character wakes up in the hospital with complete and total amnesia for any detail of her life or identity.  She is treated by an extremely kind woman named Meredith and is roommates with a grumpy old woman named Ginny while recovering.  After her recovery is complete, she realizes she has no where to go and is invited to stay in the apartment above Ginny’s garage (and next door to Meredith’s family).  As she is working to restart a life, she decides to rename herself Water because of the water symbol tattoo that is on her body, knowing it has some kind of significance to her life. During this time, she becomes close with Meredith’s son Jesse and feels like she has know him forever….maybe she does or maybe not. Even though Ginny is a cranky character, Water is able to start bringing her out of her shell and she becomes much more lovable.  In fact, she is my favorite character from the story; I found myself laughing out loud at her comments more than once.  Water is able to find out her true identity and starts remembering key details, some of which are definitely worth not remembering. There is not much I can say without giving away important plot elements.  Though I knew what was probably happening fairly early on, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book and did not want it to end.  Thanks for another great one, K.A.!

My rating: 5/5
