New York Times bestselling author JB Salsbury makes her Forever debut with a stand-alone unforgettable new novel, with a twist no one will see coming . . .

What do you do when you wake up with no memory of what you did last night?

Lucas spent the first half of his life protecting himself from others, but now his own mind is his biggest enemy. He doesn't know what happens when the blackouts overtake him, but he can recall the feelings—the rage, the confusion, the fear. Thankfully the quiet life he's found in Payson, Arizona has kept the darkness at bay. Until his boss's estranged daughter shows up in town, asking questions she shouldn't and sparking a desire Lucas can't control. Getting close to Shyann is the best thing that's ever happened to him, but when his blackouts return, unleashing the truth he's battled so long to hide, he may just lose her forever . . .

EXCERPT

“You can’t jump.”

She narrows her eyes on me. “Of course I can.”

“Is it safe?”
My grip on her grows tighter and she steps close enough that I can feel the heat of her breasts brush against my ribs. “Lucas, do you trust me?”

“No.” The word comes out on a shaky whisper.
A gentle grin softens her face and with both her hands she works to relax my hold enough for her to slip free. Seconds later she turns, takes four long strides, and disappears off the rock cliff.

A holler that can only be described as guttural exhilaration echoes off the canyon walls and slices through the trees.
I race to the edge and there’s nothing but a circle of white bubbles marring the once shimmering pond.

I wait for her to surface, and just when I’m about to jump in and rescue her, her head pops up out of the water with a feral howl.

“That was amazing!” She waves at me. “The water is perfect!”
With adrenaline coursing through my veins, I allow myself a moment to wonder what it would be like to be as free as Shyann. Everything I do is weighed against the danger of doing it. The threat of blacking out always pulling me back to walk the safer, less risky side of any situation. But something about her makes me want to try harder, makes me want to take a risk like other twenty-five-year-old guys. The sound of her squealing lights a fire in my chest that has me wanting to jump.

Risking a blackout might be worth the few seconds of euphoria I haven’t felt since…I can’t remember.
I think of backing away and yelling for her to meet me at the truck, but something pulls me toward her. Part of me wonders if it’s nothing more than wanting to be close, to keep her safe, because she belongs to Mr. Jennings and I owe him. But even as the thought enters my mind, so does another.

I want her to like me.

I want her to see me as brave.

I want to know what it’s like to be normal.

Review:


OMG!! I don't know what else to say about this book.  I want to tell you everything from the beginning to end but then you wouldn't want to read it but then again, you wouldn't want to know read it!!

This is the first and not last time that I will read a JB Salsbury book.  This was intense story that you could not stop reading. I loved Shyann and her drive.  She wants to be a reporter but something happens to her and her dreams are somewhat shattered.  She had to go back home and trust me this was the hardest thing she has to do but she is so strong minded nothing can hold her back.

Lucas is not like everyone else. He is quiet and doesn't get into the "drama".  He is not the typical hero of a story just based on who he is but the two sides of him is intriguing to say the least and you just can't stop wondering what he is about.  Lucas and Shyann have this attraction that is different and is refreshing for some odd reason.  

When the connection takes place it is by far steamy!! It’s nail biting and dark.  This book took my head and heart and had its way and it was a wonderful feeling!!


I will not give it away but read it!! Read this book over and over again.  It's dark, it's suspenseful...it's RAW!!
