Melissa reviews Whiteout (Seasons of Love #1) by Elyse Springer Expected publication: January 23rd 2017 by Riptide Publishing, 276 pages.
Noah Landers wakes up one day with a headache and no memory of where—or who—he is. Jason, the man taking care of him, tries to fill in some of the blanks: they’re in a cabin in Colorado on vacation, and Noah slipped on ice and hit his head. But even with amnesia, Noah knows Jason is leaving out something important.
Jason O’Reilly is sexy as hell, treats Noah like he’s precious, and seems determined to make this the romantic getaway they’d apparently dreamed of together. But Noah’s more concerned that he’s trapped alone with Jason in the middle of a blizzard while his slowly-returning memories bring hints of secrets and betrayal.
Noah’s not sure what’s the truth and what’s a lie. But as he learns who he is—and who Jason is to him—he’s forced to reevaluate everything he believes about himself, about loyalty . . . and about love.
A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Why I read this book: Plain and simple, the blurb really spoke to me. I LOVE amnesia stories, and this one sounded intriguing.
OMG!!!! I loved this book!! The feelz!!!!!!! It takes a lot to get me to actually shed tears for a book (it happens, yes). And I cried for these men. My poor heart! I highly recommend this story. It has angst, amnesia, partner-death and a surprising twist I didn’t expect.
And because of that twist I can’t reveal too much about the plot. I can tell you that these men met under unusual circumstances 6 months ago and during Christmas at a cabin in Colorado, Noah gets amnesia in a freak accident and can’t remember who he is or who Jason is. He knows something is wrong, but he doesn’t know what. He knows he is attracted to Jason, and senses Jason cares for him deeply. When the truth is revealed, this is where I cried. Ahh, the pain, so sad. I was up until 3 am reading this book and didn’t finish because I HAD to get up in the morning. But I made a point to carve out as much time as I could during the day to finish it.
I rate this at least 9.5 Pots. This was a good read and made me feel real emotions. Highly recommend. I wish the next 2 books weren’t F/F (that’s not my genre), but I look forward to reading book 4 that is M/M. Sigh, it’s a long wait, but I feel it will be worth it. 🙂
