What if your whole life was a lie?

Alexis Ferguson thinks she has everything figured out, but has no idea how wrong she is. Set up on a blind date, she meets a gorgeous stranger and feels that she’s known him her entire life, but she has never seen him before.

He awakens in her long-forgotten dark memories. Alexis needs to face the one who ordered her death years ago – and still wants her dead. Will she meet the challenge and accept her growing powers? Or will she try to run away from them? No matter her decision, she will end up fighting for her life and for those she loves.

The cover. This time I wasn't too wild about it, but I still think it's pretty interesting. Maybe it's because I don't think the models fit the characters, but that's just me I guess.

So, I'm giving this three triquetras only because Alexis annoyed the hell out of me at some parts. I think that when she realizes what she is she falls into the role a little too quickly and she acts like she's some big bad _____ when she obviously doesn't know what the hell she's doing. Not sure if that was intentional on the author's part or if it was just me being too picky. And Tanner...is a junkie which bothers me that Alexis went along with his plan so easily from the start.
All the things that Alexis can do just makes it seem unrealistic. I know this is a fantasy, but it seems like she can just do too much too quickly.

I also wasn't a fan of the dialogue and how there were so many exclamation points used. Again, I think I'm just being picky.

The romance between Cliff and Alexis also was a tad odd. I understand their bond and how it came to be, but I don't think it should've been as strong in the beginning as it was. It creeped me out ever so slightly.

Decent book, not one of my favorites, but a good read if you like vampires a bit more than moi.
