Nice but not a great read, the characters could have been developed more especially Ed's friends. He owns a tattoo shop and is a talented sort-out artist but the story hardly touches on him also only stating "it's work, I go, I come back". Tessa was interesting and someone I'd expect to find working as a tattoo artist, but I didn't like how she and Ed have been together since they were kids. The other characters except for Iris she was a hoot, just showed up then left.
The author touched on a rougher style of sex than they used to have (before the amnesia) but didn't go deeper into that. Or what Clem will do as a career... everything is leaving us hanging, the details there but not FINISHED. It's a real shame, SHAME on the author, as a reader the worst thing for me is to get invested in a book only for it to leave me hanging without the completed story. This book would have greatly benefited for a DUAL POV, I would have loved to know the hurt that Clem had left Ed with, we were told of his devastation and I felt a bit of it but not enough.
If everything else was good then I could overlook the style of editing, (or maybe it's the style the author chooses) either way it annoyed me - uncompleted sentences, sentences that started with And, Or. Also missing to complete the sentence - is, it, and.
I could have LOVED this book and after reading back to back 5 stars books (The Rebel of Raleigh High by Callie Hart and Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen) this one was a real disappointment.
