Blurb (from Goodreads):
What would you do if your life was a lie—and everyone knew but you? Jane has come a long way from the dark days of the horrific car accident that robbed her of many memories. Living the life of a shopgirl with a charming boyfriend—a handsome, green-eyed doctor named Derek—is so satisfying that she doesn’t want to revisit her past. But the past insists on revisiting Jane. People keep thinking she’s Samantha, a dead girl who looks exactly like her. Now, Jane is determined to discover her connection to the girl, leading her to question everything from her relationship with Derek to her own sanity. Should she believe Rory, the man who insists she actually is Samantha? Or should she depend on Derek, who offers her love and shelter…but who may have other reasons for keeping her under wraps? Who is telling her the truth—and what are the others hiding?

“Remember, I told you how there was a case of mistaken identity with Samantha Barnes? The dead man is the one who mistook me for her. And now he’s dead.”

This book was just… odd.

I really don’t know where to start with this one, because even after reading the whole book, I am still having problems really understanding who the main character was, because there were so many twists thrown in here, so many false identities and lies, that I’m not really sure I know any of the characters in this book at all.

“I go to bed, convincing myself that it doesn’t matter. I am Jane, and Samantha and her crazy life are over.”

The storyline in this really confused me, and even when I wasn’t confused, I still couldn’t be sure that I really understood what was going on. I found the first half of this book pretty boring, and then the second half just kept flinging so many different things at me that I didn’t know if I was coming or going! Who was Jane really? Who was Derek really?

“Yes, we were identical. Yes, we both had a terrible car accident. Yes, we named our cats the very same strange name.
But my life is on the other side of the country, and I lived through my tragedy.”

There was some romance, and several (sometimes rough) sex scenes, and I had to laugh at the way people kept referring to Derek as having a ‘magic cock’ – to the point where one chapter was actually called that!

“He’s a surgeon and a humanitarian and a good cook.”
He bites his lip, furrowing his dark brow. “Right, and he’s got a magic cock.”

The ending to this was still confusing, and while I think I have an idea of what happened, I’m still not sure that that is what actually happened. I really don’t think I have the motivation to read the next book in this series.
5 out of 10
