This is one of the books I read this month. I actually wasn’t very much into it, it didn’t make me laugh as much as Twenties Girl – and I really wasn’t in a rush to finish it. Usually, with Kinsella books or chick lit books, if I like it, I finish it within a day – they are light reading anyways. Maybe I was just preoccupied with work or have been avoiding buying the best eye cream for wrinkles so I have been trying to sleep early.
I also cannot hold on to the plot that Lexi lost her memory and couldn’t even recover it six months later. I like how Kinsella approached the love affair between her husband and her lover. Truly, even amnesia cannot contain attraction nor passion.
This book is all about a woman’s journey to self-discovery, and since I seriously doubt my rating of this book, when I am in a better mood, I will try to read this again.
When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she’s in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident—in a Mercedes no less—Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she’s about to find out just how much things have changed.
Somehow Lexi went from a twenty-five-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband—who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she…well, seems to be. That is, until an adorably disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all.
Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?
