✾ Synopsis ✾

The boy who remembers everything.

I heard she is finally going home today. The brain is very powerful. Her mind is unable to handle the memories of what happened, so it blocked it out. As I watch her, I envy her. I wish I could forget, just wipe away all the ugly and the bad. I'm not as lucky as the pretty, lost girl.
I would gladly trade places with her. She has no idea how good forgetting can be.

The girl who forgot everything.

I'm going home today. There is nothing the hospital can do to help me remember the last three years. They say I was attacked, but I can't help them find who it was. They say I'll eventually regain my memories but, it takes time. What happens when you run out of time? Regaining my memory becomes a deadly game of life or death.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Landon makes a grunting sound and I clench the phone tighter. Details of his life slip out here and there. What I do know, I know from observing him. Like how he prefers structure and routine. Always with a set schedule and ordering the same coffee. I notice how he is either locked inside his own head or watching everything around him with intense focus. There is no middle ground with Landon.

"Come on," I plead. "Distract me."

"You are impossible to say to no to, woman. What you want to know?"

I chew on my lip and consider the million questions floating around in my head. I never ask them because I get the feeling he doesn't like it. Plus, I know how it feels to be treated like a science experiment. He's probably put up with it most of his life.

"Do you remember the first time you saw me?" I ask and hold my breath.


"Tell me about it," I urge. I cross my ankles and sit up. My body is tight with suspense. I can clearly remember our collision in the hallway the day I left. I wanted to know how he saw it.

"You were sitting in your room. It was a Tuesday and it was raining outside. You sat cross-legged on the bed, watching the rain run down your window. You wore a pair of flannel pants and black tank top."

"Wow," I whisper. "Detailed."

"I heard that an amnesia patient had been admitted that week," he continues, and I realize he saw me way before I saw him. "I walked the halls, finding the new faces and trying to guess which one it would be. I spend every day wishing that I could forget. I wanted to know what it was like to have that ability. When I saw you, I knew you were the one they talked about."


"You looked so lost. You looked beautiful, but like you were once full of light and it was stolen from you. I figure only someone who lost something that they took for granted everyday would look like that. Maybe it's not the blessing I thought it was."

I hum into the phone and sink back into the water. "We're both cursed."

"Maybe we both needed to open our eyes," he whispers, sending shivers down my body.

Ironic how we both found each other; I can only look forward and he can only look back. I'm digging and searching for something bad that happened to me whereas Landon is trying to forget it. Neither one of us can see the world like the other, but I don't think there are two people who understand each other better than we do.

♡ Cover Reveal + #Giveaway ♡ Kick, Push (The Road #2) by Jay McLean @jaymcleanauthor

Kick, Push
The Road #2
Jay McLean

Release Date: August 4, 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

There's a single defining moment within every skater.
It lasts only a second. Two if you're good.
Three if you're really good.
It's the moment you're in the air, your board somewhere beneath you, and nothing but wind surrounds you.
It's the feeling of being airborne.

The sixteen-year-old version of me would've said it was the greatest feeling in the world.
Then at seventeen, I had my son.
And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.

Seventeen. Single. Dad.
That's what my life became.
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being airborne.
Or at least I convinced myself I did.
But I lied — to myself and to everyone around me.
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.

You know what sucks about being in the air?
Coming down from the high.
Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick.
Then kick, push, and coast away.
Other times you fall.
You fall hard.
And those are the times when it's not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again.
Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug...
And you become her poison.

Where the Road Takes Me
The Road #1

✾ Synopsis ✾

Chloe has one plan for the future, and one plan only: the road. She's made a promise to herself: don't let anyone in, and don't let anyone love her. She's learned the hard way what happens if she breaks her rules. So she's focused on being invisible and waiting until she can set out on the road — her dream of freedom, at least for a little while.

Blake Hunter is a basketball star who has it all — everything about him looks perfect to those on the other side of his protective walls. He can't let anyone see the shattered pieces behind the flawless facade or else all his hopes and dreams will disappear.

One dark night throws Chloe and Blake together, changing everything for Blake. For Chloe, nothing changes: she has the road, and she's focused on it. But when the so-called perfect boy starts to notice the invisible girl, they discover that sometimes with love, no one knows where the road may lead.

✿ Excerpt ✿

"Sierra, are you free this weekend?" Mr. Walker asked.

Dodge began choking on his own spit. Good. I hoped he passed out and hit his head on something hard. "Dad, what are you doing?"

Holding up his hand to quiet Dodge, I glanced over at him and gave him a smirk. "We are running out of time before the trial and I really want to go over some things with Sierra before next week," Dodge's father said.

"No, sir. I'm totally open all weekend. No plans at all," I said.

Turning back to Mr. Walker, he wore a huge grin. "Perfect. I'll have my car pick you up at your house tomorrow morning around seven. You'll be in Port Aransas just in time for lunch."

My smiled dropped as I stared at Dodge's father. Swallowing hard, I whispered, "Excuse me?"

Placing his hand on my shoulder, Mr. Walker gave me a wink. "Pack casual clothing and maybe one formal gown for dinner on Saturday night at the country club."

Wait. What? What the fuck just happened?

Turning to Dodge, his back was faced toward us as he stared out the window.

"Wait, um, Mr. Walker what do you mean?"

Guiding me out the door, Mr. Walker started laughing. "You're spending the weekend at my beach house, dear. We are having a family get together. It will be perfect for Aaron and me to prepare you for everything that Dr. Jackson's lawyers are going to try to ask you while you're on the stand."

I glanced over my shoulder to see Dodge talking to Kyle. Looking straight ahead, I tried to concentrate on breathing.

Oh my God. I'm spending the weekend with Dodge and his family. How did this happen?

Oh Christ.

I'm screwed.
