Everyone has secrets. Some are stranger than others.

Madison Albi is a scientist with a very special talent – for reading minds. When she stumbles across a homeless man with whom she feels an inexplicable connection, she can’t resist the dangerous impulse to use her skills to help him.

J is a non-person – a vagrant who can’t even remember his own name. He’s got no hope, until he meets Madison. Is she the one woman who can restore his past?

Madison agrees to help J recover his memory, but as she delves deeper into his mind, it soon becomes clear that some secrets are better off staying hidden.

Is J really the man Madison believes him to be?

This was the second book I’d read by Ms. Wareham and, like the first one, it began with lots of suspense that had me turning the pages. I like the way that she built upon the suspense and made me continue to guess what was going on with Jay. I really did think he was just going to be a homeless person who’d suffered a memory loss due to a beating. However, as the story unfolded it seemed obvious that he was somehow part of some deeper mystery and maybe even something sinister. The pacing was spot on and I liked the way the author built up to Jay and Madison’s first love scene. It was ideally placed.

There was an array of secondary characters in this book that also kept me guessing about their motives and how exactly they tied in with Jay. He was a character I was rooting for probably more than Madison, although while reading it I definitely hoped they had a future.

As this is high on suspense I can’t give too much away but will just say that the last thirty pages had me worrying about a happy ending as it didn’t look like there’d be one. However, the last chapter tied up all the loose ends and I liked the way Ms. Wareham chose to end this story.

If you’re a fan of romantic suspense, this is a great pick for you.
