Remember Me?: A Novel is rated 4.0494 out of 5 by 81.
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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Light Read I really liked the perspective that this book was written from. I really enjoyed learning about the main character as she learned it herself. Great read, light and enjoyable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Loved It ! I very much enjoyed this book. It kept me interested in the story from beginning till end, but then again so do all of Sophie Kinsella's books. Her writing style is very similar in each book which i quite enjoy. I found while reading this book i was constantly interested to see how it would end and if Lexi would ever fully gain her memory back. I believe this book really shows you how much people change, especially how she changes into the kind of person she would have never been. It also shows you that having money isn't always what it is made out to be in life. She woke up to such an amazing rich life but wasn't happy with it. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a little bit of suspense and humor. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book!! I loved this book!! Sophie Kinsella`s book are very entertaining and keep you interest from start to finish. Not as many funny parts as ''I've Got Your Number'', although there was one part that had me laughing so hard I was crying! However, this one was very interesting and kept me hooked the whole way through to see how things were going to turn out for Lexi. Starting the Shopaholic series now. Enjoy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chick lit at it's finest I love chick lit, it relaxes me, takes me away to another place where things are simple, easy and happy. Sophie Kinsella's books are for me a perfect getaway from the everyday grind, I enjoyed her Shopaholic series, but I loved her other books more and "Remember Me" in particular. I was into it from the very first pages and can recall thinking that I hoped that I would be able to forget the details of the book quickly, so that I might reread it in a year or so. Well that's exactly what I did over the weekend and I loved it all over again! Thank you Ms. Kinsella for the hours of pleasure that you've given me so far and I hope for many more to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wasn't bad Not one of Kinsella's best. Although i did like the story line or having to forget who you are to remember who you are there was just something missing. Maybe it was how weird her husband was. I'm not sure. this is a book to pass the time with but nothing more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorites! This was one of my first "grown up" books as I had been reading titles like Wish, Keeping the Moon, Vinyl Princess and the Georgia Nicholson Series. I thought I would try something new, and I LOVED IT! It made me laugh and it had suspense. I especially liked that it was british because I know a lot of the slang and could relate to the book well. If you liked Shopaholic and you're looking for a good but funny book, you'll love this as well. It had friendship tests, humor, family problems, some scandalous acts and a few twists and turns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT Although this is not part of the Shopoholic Series, you can most certainly tell who wrote it. Kinsella's writing style is similar throughout most of her books, but irregardless of this I loved this story. Surley one of her best. I got a few laughs in and was very wrapped up in the story itself very early on. What a great read, I really enjoyed this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable Read A truly enjoyable chick-lit that fulfills that curiosity of what would happen if you lost your memory. I would venture to assume that many of us have from time to time wondered what would happen if we lost our memory. Would we still be the same person we are at the moment, would our perspective and characteristics change or stay the same. I loved that Kinsella used this concept and made such an enjoyable read. Did I like the whole affair angle? Not at all. Especially since I couldn't help but feel for her husband who really had no clue what to do with this new woman who was polar opposite of what he'd married. Really enjoyed the journey that Lexi went through and I found once I started this book I couldn't stop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kinsella Reaches into the Heart of her Characters. Kinsella is a good storyteller. The ending is where I began to ask questions like, why give up the gorgeous, wealthy husband? I had a hard time with the main character's decision to walk away from her wardrobe, her overall wealthy lifestyle, and a husband who in his own way loved her. Kinsella needs to paint a darker picture of the husband so the reader can empathize with the main character’s decision. Regardless, the book is a page turner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quite a Surprise! (No spoilers!) Ok, so this is not at all the type of book / story I usually like. But I decided I wanted a little break from my supernatural / vampire / vampire romance / thriller / horror type that I usually read (which I love). And I have to admit it was quite fun!! I wasn't very much into it at the beginning, but it grabbed my attention after a while; and I didn't like the main character's sister (Amy) at all; but thankfully she only appears a couple of times. It did make me laugh and it was very entertaining! So there’s Lexi, the main character, who has an accident; when she wakes up, she finds out that she has amnesia and she doesn’t remember anything that happened in the last three years. So it’s quite a mess, it’s fun, stressing, and exciting when you see what she goes through while trying to get back her memory. So to sum up, it is entertaining, and it will make you laugh! It was good, but not great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophie Kinsella meets Emily Giffin I love Sophie Kinsella's writing, and of course the Shopaholic series, but Remember Me? takes her writing to a new level, adding depth to the characters and the storyline, while still maintaining the easy, witty writing that Kinsella is known for. It's engaging and unpredictable, thought-provoking yet still fun. If you love Kinsella you'll like this book, but if you're looking for something less light-hearted, you will love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella (Book Review) Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella is now in paperback. Ms Kinsella is the author of the internationally best selling Shopaholic Series. She writes funny chic lit with happy endings and this novel has all her usual ingredients for a great read. It is a well written easy read that made me laugh out loud and cry for poor Lexi. The book’s ISBN is 05527727653 and it is published by Black Swan. The main character Lexi wakes up in a hospital after a car crash with amnesia and she thinks it is 2004 and she is most unhappy with her life. Gradually, she discovers that it is 2007 and all is prefect. She has a well toned body, she has fixed her teeth, she is no longer in a dead end job she is the director, the director from hell. She meets her husband a drop dead gorgeous millionaire and lives in a penthouse over looking the Thames. The novel is her journey in discovering her path to success. She learns her husband is a control freak and her friends have disowned her. Her sweet little sister is now a hormonal teenager and her job is way too competitive. She wonders is her life really that perfect? Then a hunky man turns up on her doorstep to reveal they are secret lovers. Followers of Sophie Kinsella and chic lit novels will enjoy this, I did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from her other books are better The book was ok. I find that Can you keep a secret? and an Undomestic Goddess are both much better then this one. I find the others to be more funny and this one is more serious. Can you keep a secret? is definitely my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great idea the story line of a girl loosing the memory of the last three years of her life and realizing she had lost herself over the years was brilliant. this is one of my favourite books and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Real Thinker When you read this book you tend to put your self in the place of the main character. You place your life as hers what and try and imagine the horror and the hardships that would come with loosing your memory and having to try and re learn everything you don’t remember. You tend to get stressed when people tell her things she doesn’t’ know if they are real or not because you yourself are basically being her in the book and are feeling what it would be like to be in a accident that changed your life. This book also shows how much a person life changes over such a short period of time and how much other people can have an affect on them. We are able to see in this book that one change in someone’s lives has a massive effect on everyone else if we know it or not. Sometimes the changes are not for the better sometimes it is. We are the main character here and we are learning that our life is nothing that we remember. The people she once knew doesn’t know her any more and she doesn’t know them ,people also now know her and she has no idea who they are and must try and place them where they belong in her life. It makes us realize how much we take little things for granted and how one little mistake can change the world we know so well. We need to understand that each day is not a given and we should also be prepared for the unexpected because you never know what can happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ending I think Remember Me? had the perfect ending. Lexi Smart doesn’t have some brilliant flash of memory; things don’t come flooding back to her in grand, dramatic fashion. What happens seems more natural. It’s a thread, “gossamer thin” and it’s real. It’s something she can hold on to and use for the life she’s creating for herself. It’s not the picturesque life she thought she had, it’s a life that reflects the person she’s remembered. Remember Me? is definitely full of Sophie Kinsella’s style and humour. The story, however, didn’t have me yearning for more the way the Shopaholic series has or The Undomestic Goddess. I didn’t love Lexi the way I did Becky or Samantha. The meat of the story, the really interesting bits, doesn’t happen until a third of the way into the narrative. Lexi takes too long to learn about Eric. Maybe Jon should have been introduced sooner. It is a really enjoyable story and an excellent stand-alone book. I just found Lexi’s friends and family frustrating and extremely unhelpful towards someone who has amnesia. It fueled the plot, but made me a bit angry at the supporting characters. Remember Me? was an easy read and a unique story. However, it didn’t leave me with the same good feeling as Kinsella’s other works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Read Remember Me? is a witty, fun read. A nice change from the Shopoholic series! To think how you would feel losing your memory of the past 3 years is rather scary - this book lets us know we shouldn't take our daily lives for granted. Loved the characters, the creative plot setting and that standard, bizzare humour that Sophie Knisella has us all hooked on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Funny, an Absolute Page-Turner. I really like Sophie Kinsella's novels and this one was no different. I loved this book. So funny and so witty. It really brings up some great questions. What would you do if you couldn't remember the last 3 years of your life? I would definitely recommend this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite good. I've read the "Shopaholic series" by Sophie Kinsella and enjoyed them all. This one is another one that I enjoyed. The POV in this is clear and enables the reader to feel just as the main character does. Lexi has an accident while hailing a taxi at 25, when she wakes up 3 years has passed and she doesn't recall the past few years. The reader feels her pain and frustrations as she struggles with regaining her memory and the betrayals that unfold about her own life. Slowly she starts piecing the puzzle back together and right when she thinks she has it another curve ball is thrown her way. Be prepared for a few chuckles and a few sighs of exasperation for Lexi, she experiences a lot in this one. What I really liked about this story is that it made me sit back and reflect on my own life, what my life would be like if I just woke up and had forgotten the past 3 years of my life, waking up to that would be terrifying as so much changes in such little time. It is quite a good conversation piece too. I know I will be picking this book up again to read while I enjoy my favorite chocolate, or bubble bath. It is a comforting read. As a side note, whenever I read novels like this I always tend to read them with an English accent which helps the giggle factor .... well for me anyways.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More great Chick Lit Remember Me? is another fun read by Sophie Kinsella. It's a light read that only took me a day, but I really enjoyed the story and the characters. Lexi Smart wakes up from an accident with amnesia and has to learn about the last 3 years of her life from the various people around her - which is somewhat complicated by people who omit details or flat out lie to her. There are many humourous situations as she tries to learn about who she has become and attempts to fit back into her 'new' life (which includes a faboulous new lifestyle, hot hubby, successful career and closet full of designer clothes and shoes). Personally, I prefer this book and the Undomestic Goddess by Kinsella over her Shopaholic series. But if you enjoy Kinsella's writing you will enjoy this title.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Remember Me? Lexi Smart awakens in a hospital having lost all of her memories of the past three years of her life. She remembers herself as snaggletoothed, frizzy-haired, broke, plump and miserable...but somehow she has a Louis Vuitton bag, a skinny body, perfect teeth, perfect hair...and the perfect husband?? The car accident she was in...in her Mercedes...has left Lexi with amnesia and somehow she must figure out just how in the heck her life changed so dramatically. Sophie Kinsella's stories are always good for a laugh. They are fluffy, funny and you can finish them in a few hours. I really liked the concept of Remember Me? and was cracking up at all the messes Lexi got herself into and tried to get herself out of. Kinsella has an amazing ability to make very likable characters and to make you laugh. I have read The Undomestic Goddess though which I liked better, mostly because I laughed more, and which, for me, had a more satisfying ending. I would have liked to see an epilogue or a longer last chapter for Lexi's story. That said, I bought Confessions of a Shopaholic and look forward to reading more of Sophie Kinsella's novels. My Rating: 3.5

You almost feel like your there and watching all this unfold wondering if lexi will ever get her memory back and does she really go back to her old life or start a new one with another guy? oh I said too much! Definately a good book to share with the girlfriends..... I highly recommend it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll definitely remember this one! The main character has an accident and has no memory of the last 3 years of her life. She is suddenly rich, and married to a handsome man that she has no recollection of. As she tries to piece together the missing years, she finds she is a totally different person (both physically and emotionally) than she remembers being and nothing is what it appears to be. This is a quick and fun read if you need something light.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light Fun Read I have an up and down relationship with Sophie Kinsella - I read the first couple of Shopaholic books and really enjoyed them. Then the third book came out and Becky didn't learn a thing and was so annoying that I wanted to strangle her and I swore I would never read Kinsella again. But then the Undomesticated Goddess came out, and as a lawyer who works at a bookstore I love books where lawyers hate it and do something else, so I had to read it. And I loved it. Kinsella can write fun fluffy books that will make you laugh or smile, and if you don't hate the main character they are a fairly safe bet - if you like one, you'll probably like them all. So that is my Sophie Kinsella baggage (but don't get me started on Madeleine Wickham - Kinsella writes those books as well but I just can't seem to finish one.) and I am now free to review Remember Me? It is the story of Lexi who wakes up in the hospital and can't remember any of the last three years of her life - including her dad's funeral, her marriage, her stint on reality tv, her makeover and her new job. It was an interesting premise - because in so many books the main characters (especially the women) want to be rich, have a good career, the fancy husband, the weight-loss and the makeover and that will be their happy ending. Here, we are starting at this point and Lexi isn't happy. Her life is not what she expected at all, and she is trying to turn back the clock and undo the success to find out what went wrong. It is not as hilarious as some people find other Kinsella books, but I thought it was nice light read for the beach. I liked Lexi and I enjoyed the ending. I would definitely recommend Emily Giffin for those who want to move up in the chic lit world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A cute and fast read Remember Me was a cute and fast read. Lexi wake sup from an accident having lost the last three years of her life. Shes very confused but also happy, because things seem to be great. They are not great though. Her husband, although rich and handsome, is not someone she can connect with. Her new best friend is shallow and not at all reliable, and all her old friends can't stand to be around her. Jon, a man who works with her husband pays special attention to Lexi, and as kind as he is, Lexi doesn't want to be a cheater or complicate her life anymore. She just wants to find herself, get her old friends back, and be happy. I wont give it away, but Lexi does end up with a man at the end of the book. I believe I was the right choice. The bedroom door is closed on this romance, but it was a light, quick read. I liked it. I want to read more this author, so I'll give it a B.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't Rank with Shopaholic Series It was well written and filled with intrigue; but predictable and quite un-climatic. I was expecting to laugh throughout the entire book, but Kinsella didn't develop her witty humour with the main characters. Although, the marraige manual, quite funny I must admit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Fantastic, I couldn't put it down" This is my first book by Sophie and I LOVED it. It kept me turning pages. I bought it on a Sunday and finished it on Wednesday. Like another reader, I felt like I was character in the book and placed myself in scene. This would totaly be a Great Movie. In fact as I read it , I played the movie in my head. I couldn't put it down. It was 389 pages of Intrigue. Cant wait to start another.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from All right but all too predictable I was anxious to get my hands on a copy and sure enough, it had all of the elements of a Sophie Kinsella novel: the romance, the laughs here and there, and the good ending. Unfortunately, though, it made the storyline all too predictable and by the end, I felt as though the novel could be lengthened. Perhaps a sequel? Don't get me wrong - I enjoy reading Sophie Kinsella's works. She has her own brand of humour, and that sort of fairytale ending can make any reader feel happy. But after reading all of her novels, it's clear what will happen by the end, as much as the novel does have an original premise. Definitely recommended for all chick lit fans, but after reading this, I've felt all the more need to read something fresher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Predictable but still a good read..... Well the book is very predictable Sophie Kinsella, but at least you know what you're getting, a happy ending and enjoyable characters. It had a bit of a slow start and I definitely thought that her life would be revealed as being much more scandalous than it actually was. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this light read and would recommend it for anyone in the mood for chic lit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Easy Read I love these kinds of books, because after a long day of running around after a 2 year old, sometimes you need one of those easy to read, mindless books to settle down with. Not that it's really mindless, but it's not a book that you have to be constantly thinking, remembering names of characters and piecing puzzle pieces together. Sophie Kinsella again forms a character who people can relate to, feel the pain she goes through, and the love she experiences. Would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys her other books and to those who haven't kicked back with a great relaxing book lately!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Like Eating Your Favorite Candy! I think this is Sophie Kinsella's best non-Shopaholic book. I loved the characters, story and I thought the pacing was really good. I started the book on a Thursday and I finished it on Sunday. Actually, I would have finished it sooner but I was kind of busy! (ha!) It was a great way to pass the time. If only she could write her books faster...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Wow, I just have to say that Remember Me? is now officially my favourite Sophie Kinsella book. I just loved Lexi Smart. She was real and down to earth. She was easy to relate to and you could understand her character. Praise to Kinsella. Her next book should be a continuation of Remember Me?.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZINGLY GREAT READ!!! When I picked up Sophie Kinsella's new book and read the inside cover, I couldn't resist purchasing her new book. From the first page I was transfixed. I wasn't able to put this book down. It was a fast, exciting read and I was disappointed when it ended. You'll love it!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Well, I've finally finished the latest of Kinsella's books. I must say that I enjoyed it but not as much as the other ones she's written. I did find it a little slow in certain areas though it didn't stop me from finishing it. Still like Kinsella and I can't wait for her next one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not tear myself away from reading this book!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am an avid reader and this is one of my new top favourites!!! Thank you Kinsella for the entertainment!!! I can hardly wait for the next one. For those of you who are thinking about purchasing it... when you get it good luck trying to put it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great read! I was waiting for this to come out! I grabbed it up as soon as I could, & I was not disappointed! I read it in a day & didn't want it to end. A few days after I finished it, I realized that the ending was a *tad* unsatisfying for me. She did leave many questions unanswered... possibly for a sequel?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from absolute disappointment I thought this book will be as funny as "Can you keep a secret" the story was slow, it only picked up pace by the 250th page. I was so looking forward to reading this book, however, Kinsella did not do a good job on this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Easy Read A Cute book that was easy to get through in no time. As with any of Kinsella's books, it was a nice read that made me smile and laugh because of the antics of the main character.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Book. This was not my favourite by Kinsella. For the majority of the book I was so excited to finish. When I had only 30 or so pages to go I realized that many, many questioned still had not been answered. At this point some characters had not been fully developed though they had been presented as signifigant to the main character's story. I still love Kinsella and enjoyed the book . Definitely no time or money wasted! A great book for the Chick Lit Lover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So cute! Sophie Kinsella does it again. I was hooked from the first page. Though it might not be a great work of literature. It was a entertaining story that made me laugh. A great book for vacation or just easy reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! she did it again! I bought the book when it came out but managed to finish it in 2 days. It was a great read, though the ending was somewhat predictable, I still couldn't put the book down. It's not like you're regular book about amnesia either, Kinsella adds in her whitty banters making the readers hooked. I loved this book as much as I loved the "Undomestic Godess" outside of her "Shopaholic" series. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONE OF THE BEST!!! I just finished reading "Remember Me" I couldn't put it down. Cheering for Lexi all the way. This by far is definitely my favourite Sophie Kinsella book. Can't wait for the next one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another hit for Sophie! Loved it! Totally different than the Shopoholic Series, but you love the character just as much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved EVERY Page! I finished reading 'Remember Me' and loved it! I loved the fact that it wasn't another 'Shopaholic'. I had quite a few laughs while reading this book and when finished, felt satisfied by the ending!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This book was by far my favorite of Sophie Kinsella's! I kept finding myself cheering for Lexi the entire book, and it kept me hanging until the very last page! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! So I bought this book right when it came out last week - although different fromt he shopoholic series, its still got that funny witt sophie kinsella is famous for. I really enjoyed the journey the main character Lexi takes you though while trying to restore her old memories. I laughed out loud atleast 15 times while reading this book. It's an easy, fun read.

Rated out of 5 by from do you like shoes and shallowness? this one's for you I have generally felt embarrassed letting other people know I read this. However, I did laugh quite a few times while reading it. Even though I did want to throttle the main character for her shallow air-headedness, I laughed for many of the same reasons. It was along the lines of "I have no idea who you are, but you're gorgeous and you say you're my husband, so I must love you..." And repeat. Not bad for a bus ride or airport lay-over book. Would I recommend it? Well, read the title of this review... I think I'll try some more Kinsella.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Hit for Kinsella I got an advanced copy of this book a little while ago and I think it will be just as big as the Shopaholic series. Although I much prefered the Shopaholic series, this is still an amazing and captivating light read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart, Witty and Fun. I was lucky enough to get hold of an advance reading copy and have to say, from the first few pages I was hooked. Fans of the Shopaholic books will love the humor and charm in Ms. Kinsella's new book. Best of all, the premise is unique and the feeling and comedy come naturally to the characters. Sophie really grabs the feelings of Lexi, leaving us feeling what she is feeling... at first confused and scared, later curious and excited. Thought it doesn't come out for a few weeks, I'd say it's a perfect read for anyone who wants to take a break from their winter bla's and go live in someone else's world for a while.

Read from the Book

Chapter One How long have I been awake? Is it morning yet? I feel so rough. What happened last night? God, my head hurts. Okay, I''m never drinking again, ever. I feel so woozy I can''t even think, let alone . . . *** Oww. How long have I been awake? My head is splitting and kind of foggy. And my mouth is parched. This is the most monster hangover I''ve ever had. I''m never drinking again, ever. Is that a voice? No, I have to sleep . . . *** How long have I been awake? Five minutes? Half an hour, maybe? It''s kind of hard to tell. What day is it, anyway? For a moment I just lie still. My head is pounding with a rhythmic pain, like some sort of massive concrete-breaker. I''m dry-throated and aching all over. My skin feels like sandpaper. Where was I last night? What''s wrong with my brain? It''s like a fog has descended over everything. I''m never drinking again. I must have alcohol poisoning or something. I''m trying to remember last night as hard as I can-but all that''s coming into my head is stupid stuff. Old memories and images from the past, flashing by in random order, like some kind of iPod shuffle in my brain. Sunflowers waving against a blue sky . . . Amy as a newborn baby, looking like a little pink sausage in a blanket . . . A plate of salty french fries on a wooden pub table; hot sunshine on my neck; my dad sitting opposite in a Panama hat, blowing out cigar smoke and telling me, "Eat up, sweetheart" . . . The sack race at school. Oh God, not this memory

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?
