Blurb from Goodreads:

Emma wakes in a hospital, with no memory of what came before. Her husband, Declan, a powerful, seductive man, provides her with new memories, but her dreams contradict his stories, showing her a past life she can’t believe possible: memories of war, of a camp where girls are trained to be wives, of love for another man. Something inside her tells her not to speak of this, but she does not know why. She only knows she is at war with herself.

Suppressing those dreams during daylight hours, Emma lets Declan mold her into a happily married woman and begins to fall in love with him. But the day Noah stands before her, the line between her reality and dreams shatters.

In a future where women are a rare commodity, Emma fights for freedom but is held captive by the love of two men—one her husband, the other her worst enemy. If only she could remember which is which. . . .








My Review:

*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Penguin/Dutton and M.D. Waters*

4/5 stars


Emma wakes in a hospital with no memories which her husband tells her is a result of an accident.
As Emma settles into her life as the wife of Declan, a powerful man, she starts having dreams of a training camp for women, war and another man. A man that she calls husband but is not Declan.
In love with Declan, Emma must decide who to trust and learn the truth.

Up until 75% this was a 3.5 star book for me but the last 25% gripped me and I didn't want to put it down or for it to end.
Emma was a good protagonist and I enjoyed reading as she struggled with who to trust.
The storyline was intriguing and I didn't guess the big twist.
I can't wait for the sequel - especially after that epilogue!
A very good read.
