Dying to Remember

GIVEAWAY
PARKER, SARA K.
DYING TO REMEMBER

Her missing memories could expose a killer.

After a gunshot wound to the head, Ella Camden turns to the only man she knows will believe she's being targeted, ex-love and security expert Roman DeHart. Trouble is, amnesia keeps her from remebering why someone might be after her. Roman let her go once. This time he'll do whatever it takes to make sure she stays alive -- and his -- forever.

My Review:

Eeep Alert! This is a suspense that generates unnatural bibliophile shrieks of reader joy so apologies for any shattered eardrums. Super enthralling and edgy and kind of hair-raising, but not in the usual sense. It's more a subtle, mess-with-your-mind kind of creepy. Paired with blatant murder attempts and...well, let's just say I read it all in one sitting.

And I guess I wouldn't be doing my due diligence if I didn't issue a Swoon Alert as well. Roman DeHart is all that is sublime in a romantic suspense hero. Driven by a tragedy in his past, he's created Shield Protection where security specialists like himself do everything in their power to protect desperate clients who require their unique services. People like Ella. (insert a second chance love story mini squeal here.)

Roman is an appealing contrast of tough and caring. His relentless pursuit of the truth, his desire to believe Ella when no one else will, the deeply buried longing that breaks through the surface at the most inopportune times...Phew! The stuff curled toes are made of. BUT what really captured my heart is that he is a man of faith. There's this one scene...so unexpected and endearing and spiritually powerful...well, I fell head-over-heels.

Dying to Remember (clever title tie-in, by the way) isn't marked as a series, but I think it might just be the first book in one. Parker has introduced her readers to some intriguing security specialists and I simply have to know their stories so there better be more books!!!!

    1. And this one is very different from any other amnesia story you've read. I'm always amazed to see the unique twists authors spin on the same theme. Good luck, Trixi.

    1. This is definitely a book to get excited over! Eep, squeep, swoon and repeat! All the way through. Good luck, Tracey.

  4. LOL! Tracey took the words right out of my mouth...er, fingers, rather. I like reading LIS in e-book format bc the books are so small, I always drop them. hahaha Klutzy, I know, but whatever works! 😜
    Thanks, Kav!

    1. Well, that's the first time I've heard that point in favour of ebooks! I still need the swooshing sound of rapid page turns and the smell of ink and the feel of the shiny cover. I'm a hopeless 'book'book romantic. Good luck, Diana.

      Delete
    2. Mine swoosh, too. Right out of my hands and into my lap! lol But I love both for different reasons. When I'm doing chores or in pain my Kindle plays to me. If I'm enjoying the night air I can see to read. And the mosquitoes can see me! lololol But I love paperbacks too. The smell, feel, cover, everything!

    3. Ohhh -- do you mean your kindle reads to you? That might be nice.

      Delete
    4. It sure does! Not a nice narrator's voice as in audiobooks, but pleasant enough for a computerized one. lol Sure breaks the monotony of certain chores!

    1. You are speaking a strange dialect here, Jackie. I don't understand a word. :-) However we read 'em, let's keep LI sending books our way!

      Delete
    2. Amen, Kav, keep 'em coming! I don't know anything about bookmate.com, Jackie. Hmmm...

      Delete
  8. I read paperback LI's, but I do love my kindle too Diana! So easy to use the cover to prop and have hands free reading!

    Jackie, Thanks for the tip about the covers on bookmate.com, I'm going to check those out.I

    And in other news, I have my own Eeep going! I got A Chance at Forever I won a while back last week and today The Road to Magnolia Glen! Thanks for both Kav! I dont know how to decide which to read first! Send advisory help 😁

    1. Eeeeep! Is right! What a choice. And you don't want to hurt either books feelings by choosing one over the other. Perhaps to be fair you could go by publication date. Or arrival into your home date. Hmmm....both of those would mean A Chance at Forever should be first read BUT you might catch a glimpse of Connor in The Road to Magnolia Glen soooooooooooooooo.....I'm not any help at all.

      Delete
    2. Actually I agree with your reasoning about Magnolia Glen because...Connor!
      But I'm open to his brother's awesomeness
      Too 😀
      My other wonderful reader problem is I have a review copy of a book I really want to read badly and just got a review approval for another book I can hardly wait to dive into, sooo...that makes FOUR books I want to read!! Oh the ups and downs of an avid reader,lol!

      Delete
    3. It's a delightful dilemma, isn't it? Just don't read them all at once! I know a few people who read multiple books at the same time and that's...well...like texting while talking with a friend while writing a review. lol

      Delete
    4. I never could read multiple books. I'm a dizzy blonde -- literally. But I have an intelligent solution to this very serious problem. Eeny meeny miny moe, you're my choice now here we go! I may be a dizzy blonde, but I'm not a dumb one! LOL

      Delete
    5. Bwahahaha! The perfect solution. I must remember that the next time I am in a similar dilemma.

      Delete
  9. His name is Roman. What more needs to be said?! :) I hope I win! I haven't read one of these books in a long time. I'm due for a gripping suspense and lovely romance.
