"God, if only his every word didn't sound like an invitation to burn the sheets. How the hell was that even possible to be just friends with someone like Daniel Farrell? A delightful picture of everything that any woman would love to see first thing in the morning..."
What would you do if all your memories were gone? One day Kassie wakes up and realizes that her life is nothing but an endless emptiness…
One tragic incident takes away everything that she has ever cherished and loved: family, friends and all the best moments that she ever lived through.
Now everything seems unknown, including a beautiful stranger, whose mere look makes her heart beat faster.
Who is that reckless and mysterious man? Is he just an old friend or an enemy? Sinking into the vortex of indescribable emotions, they will give in to the most irresistible temptation ever, just to fall in love with each other, again and again...
I finished this book a while ago, but as soon as I finished it I couldn’t find the proper words to write a coherent review. I enjoyed Love Undone more than I would have imagined, as a matter of fact I am always pleasantly surprised when reading a book by Diana Nixon. That is mainly due to the characters. It’s so easy to like each of her characters, because they have a certain maturity that many characters from other books don’t have.
This is the case of Kassie, who suffers from a kind of amnesia that doesn’t allow her to remember any recent events. She discovers new friends and the loss of loved ones. She starts off as an innocent, unknowing young woman and grows up quickly; becoming the strong woman she was before the accident. It’s impossible not to like her especially since Kassie is not that kind of character that is set off on drama.
Then there’s Daniel, always there for Kassie. Some are tempted to say that he is a bad boy, but I cannot see him like that. Yes, he owns a motorcycle and a business and a bitchy girlfriend, but he had a tough life and worked hard for what he has. I love how he takes care of his sister and Kassie and the way he respects the memory of his best friend.
The Love Story
Here is one thing about Love Undone: the love story flows naturally. The chemistry between Daniel and Kassie doesn’t feel forced because deep down inside Kassie’s heart, those feelings exist. They just emerge as soon as she gets to spend more time with Daniel. So no instant love here and I always appreciate this when speaking about Diana Nixon’s books.
As much as I liked the two main characters, I loved Emily. She is bright and so alive. She has her dark secrets, just like the others, but on the surface she doesn’t show them. Emily still feels the need to have fun, protect and help her best friend.
Love Undone is the perfect read for those that enjoy a heartwarming love story, a story about remembering and reliving. Perfect as a summer read.
