What do you do when you have no memories of your life except the one moment that took everything away? My name is Dex and I'm a Marine. Somewhere in the horrors of the sand overseas, an explosion took out not only most of my unit but also my memories of everything that happened before that day. When my memories don’t return, the explosion also ends my career in the military. That one moment costs me everything. Starting from scratch sucks. I don’t even know what foods I like or what types of music I listen to. Am I a boxer or briefs man? Do I like women or men? I also have to figure out what I’m going to do with my life from this point on. While adjusting to my new life, I start seeing things -- things that no one else can see. I think that maybe my head injury caused more than amnesia. When one of my "visions" won't leave me alone, I have no choice but to believe in ghosts. Along with the ghosts during the day, at night I dream vividly of two men. But are these two men merely dreams, or are they memories? When one man steps through the door of my hospital room, I have the answer. This man literally tries to lead me down memory lane, culminating in a searing kiss. Too bad my brain isn't cooperating, because this man is breathtaking. With the help of my sassy grandmother, I begin to rebuild my life. I am Samuel Dexter, and these are my stories. WARNING: This book contains scenes that might be considered triggers for some. Sam is a Marine involved in an explosion. This book also (mildly) describes children being kidnapped in the past and their remains found later.

This book was right up my alley. Sam is a Marine that was injured in the line of combat. He wakes up in the hospital and has no clue where he is, why he's there or even who he is. Once released to go home with his Grandmother, who I love by the way, he starts to see things that he chalks up to PTSD. While he thinks he's going crazy, he actually realizes that he has a special gift of seeing ghosts.
He feels that his little ghost, Cindy, did not die of natural causes and is determined to find out what happened to her. He joins forces with a kick ass PI to help him solve the mystery of Cindy’s death.Along the way he is starting to remember small pieces of his life and those that he loved and lost.
There is a lot more mystery than romance in this book in my opinion and that is something that I gotta say I liked that. When Sam and his first love Orlando reconnect I felt that it was secondary to finding Cindy’s killer. But when their romance is brought to the front, it's super fast, and it almost felt rushed to me.
I really can't wait to see what the rest of this series will bring.
I give this book 4 1/2 Supernatural Stars!
