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?

Wow! This store was quite the wild ride! Quite the thriller. As Jane said several times in the book, "my head is spinning", and that was the way mine was. What a story! Very interesting! I was kept guessing through the whole book as to who she really was. The only thing I didn't care much for was the graphic sex. I like that toned down a bit. But the story was interesting and I look forward to the next book in the series. I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
Blood and Bone, Blood and Bone Series (Book 1), Tara Brown Genre: Dark Romance, Thriller/Mystery Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Well, I’ve enjoyed several of Tara’s novels including some of the darker ones, but this is one on its own....parts of me loved it and parts of me hated it. Review huh? That’s tough. Still – I’ll try... Its confusing, incredibly confusing. You think one thing, then like Jane find out its all a lie, but then its not, or is it, or is it part lie part truth. Poor Jane doesn’t know who to trust, who to believe, and it seems everyone knows more about her than she does. They all sound so confident, so definite and it’s so hard to try to work out who’s telling the truth, what’s going on, and what on earth its all about. Just when I think Derek is a fabulous man we find he may not be, he could be someone totally different, or then again may he is and its the others that are lying. Likewise Rory – he says one thing that convinces Jane, and then....some part is proved a lie..or is it the evidence that’s wrong. If you want a book that’s a real mindf ck of a read, well, this is it. It’s classed as romance and in a way I can see it is, because of the ending, but along the journey Jane isn’t sure who it is she loves, or why, or if she’s wrong to do so...thankfully it all works out in an incredibly surprising way. Its a scary read, not a sweet, loving one, but one full of horrors, contradictions, and will have you so confused you won’t know which way is up. I thought The Lonely was dark and confusing, but its got nothing on this one. I loved that one though and have reread it – this one? Well, I think maybe even though it kept me gripped, its a step to far on the dark side for me to say I enjoyed it, and I really doubt I’d reread. Its incredibly clever writing, full of possibilities for the future but as a romance its not a huge success for me, maybe a three, as a thriller it’s a five so my rating is between the two. It really depends on what you’re looking for. Stars: Four, three for romance, five for thriller. ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers
