A man without memories, and the cop who never gave up hope.
When he wakes up in the hospital, the victim of a brutal beating, John Doe has no memories of who he is or who hurt him. The cops can find nothing to identify him and he can't remember anything to help... except the name Ethan and one recurring place from his dreams. Two words, and they're not much, but it's a start: Crooked Tree.
Detective Ethan Allens has never stopped searching for the two boys who vanished. When a report lands on Ethan's desk that may give new leads, he jumps at the chance to follow them up. The man he finds isn't his brother, but it's someone who could maybe help him discover what happened twelve years ago.
What neither man can know is that facing the very real demons of the past could destroy any kind of future they may have together.
Never give up hope...
Ethan has been looking for his brother and their friend Adam for twelve years. When a John Doe is brought into hospital he is linked to their disappearance, Ethan doesn't hesitate going to discover if it is one of them. The John Doe has no memory of any of his life but it is clear to Ethan that it is Adam, his friend and first love.
I really enjoyed the mystery and discovery of the past alongside Adam and Ethan. I loved the contrast between this and the first in the series. The way it unfolded and how memories were rediscovered made it feel like you were part of the story. The tension, both of not knowing and between Adam and Ethan, kept you on the edge of your seat, wanting to discover the truth but also not wanting their story to end.
"5 Stars!! For a romance and a mystery all in one!! ~Jaime - Alpha Book Club

"You can't go wrong with an R.J. Scott book, and this one is no different. Heartwarming and fun with a splash of angst and suspense..." ~Ceri (Goodreads Review)
