♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½
When Houston Detective Charlie Vargas gets a phone call that sounds exactly like a man she once dated who disappeared over a year ago, she doesn't know what to believe. Especially when that man tells her he's been in an accident and doesn't remember anything but her phone number. As the two work together to dig up clues about the man Charlie thinks this stranger is, she worries he might not be the man she thought he was at all.
Mason is living a life that just doesn't seem right to him. A year ago he was in an accident, but he can't remember who he is. When he looks in the mirror he sees a man he doesn't recognize and it goes far beyond the fact that he can't remember. After the accident his face had to have reconstructive surgery, so he has no idea what he even looked like before.
The only thing he does know is a phone number from his past. He calls the number and when he hears the woman who the number belongs to is a cop, he hopes she can help him fill in the blanks.
Kudos to the author. This book is filled with suspense and mystery that keeps the readers wondering what is truly going on. There is just the right amount of betrayal and secrecy to keep reader guessing. Charlie is a wonderful heroine filled with spirit and the wounded Mason/Seth is willing to ask for help, even though he would rather be the one protecting Charlie.
Cold case detective Charlie Vargas is searching for a killer-but what she really needs to know is what happened to her lover, who vanished several months ago. When the phone rings and she hears Seth's voice, she's skeptical. He tells her his name is Mason Alridge, and the only thing he remembers after his accident is the number he called...hers.
Mason looks nothing like her former lover, but there's something about his mannerisms, if not his face, that draws Charlie in. As they begin to piece together what few clues and skimpy details they have, Charlie and the man she believes is Seth slowly discover a mutual passion. With the Feds following at a distance and someone trying to kill them, will they live long enough to find out his true identity?
