    I just finished this book and found it to be interesting but not really astounding not sure if I would recommend it perhaps to my friends who are die hard mystery readers who read anything with a mystery It is full of cliches the rich father who cares only for his business and would do anything to protect it, the rich boyfriend who is unlikeable and abusive, the rich daughter with a secret that is slowly exposed as you read forward And the nice, albeit slightly confused and insecure boyfri I just finished this book and found it to be interesting but not really astounding not sure if I would recommend it perhaps to my friends who are die hard mystery readers who read anything with a mystery It is full of cliches the rich father who cares only for his business and would do anything to protect it, the rich boyfriend who is unlikeable and abusive, the rich daughter with a secret that is slowly exposed as you read forward And the nice, albeit slightly confused and insecure boyfriend who would do anything to protect his lover The inclusion of the use of memory drugs makes the story interesting and I loved the little addition of the tattoo as an identifier I would ahve liked a stronger sense of place as the story plunged into Africa it was a bit hazy for me

    This book is a bit long and dragged out, but ultimately has a great plot with many twists I never saw coming I thought the ending was a bit too abrupt, but overall I really enjoyed this.

    Julie Compton has done it again I love it when an author lures you in with suspense and doesn t disappoint There are so many twists and turns I truly enjoyed my ride Like her other two books, I wondered what I would do if I were in Anders shoes The lengths a person goes for the one they love is remarkable I found myself wondering like you will no doubt is he in denial Or is he right Anders love for Olivia is very apparent I couldn t put this book down Great job Julie

    It s great to find another good romance suspense author This was an enjoyable read especially in concern to the memory drug and what it can do to someone Loved how the characters unfolded but found it a bit weak in regards to how all of a sudden money came from nowhere to pay for expensive flights etc considering said man had no money But don t let that ruin it for you a worthwhile read

    Anders Erickson is your standard underachiever He s intelligent we are told he actually does a lot of stupid things in the book so you really have to take the author s word on that but unmotivated When the novel begins he is just recovering from a motorcycle accident Anders is just scraped up but his girlfriend, the Olivia of the title, was seriously injured and is in a coma.Olivia comes from money Her family is wealthy and powerful and they are immediately hostile toward Anders They wo Anders Erickson is your standard underachiever He s intelligent we are told he actually does a lot of stupid things in the book so you really have to take the author s word on that but unmotivated When the novel begins he is just recovering from a motorcycle accident Anders is just scraped up but his girlfriend, the Olivia of the title, was seriously injured and is in a coma.Olivia comes from money Her family is wealthy and powerful and they are immediately hostile toward Anders They won t let him visit her in intensive care Then Olivia disappears from the hospital He doesn t know where she is or what condition she s in He finds himself in the middle of some sort of conspiracy and only very slowly begins to piece together a picture of what s going on.The story is engaging the characters are interesting for the most part and realistic Because of that engagement, however, the first part of the novel was frustrating Anders is beaten at every turn by forces he doesn t understand On top of that he does several bone headed things and just makes things worse for himself I found myself wanting to yell advice into the book like a football fan or something.The story is a bit far fetched and even becomes a bit of a soap opera memory loss is a prominent plot device, you see but overall it s an interesting read
