Synopsis from Goodreads: Jamie woke up in an empty apartment with no memory and only a few clues to his identity, but with the ability to read and erase other people’s memories—a power he uses to hold up banks to buy coffee, cat food and books.


Zoe is also searching for her past, and using her abilities of speed and strength…to deliver fast food. And she’ll occasionally put on a cool suit and beat up bad guys, if she feels like it.


When the archrivals meet in a memory-loss support group, they realize the only way to reveal their hidden pasts might be through each other. As they uncover an ongoing threat, suddenly much more is at stake than their fragile friendship. With countless people at risk, Zoe and Jamie will have to recognize that sometimes being a hero starts with trusting someone else—and yourself.


My Review: One of my favorite things about this book was the lack of a romance. This may not seem like a great thing to many reviewers but I find that books all have some angle of a romantic relationship and I must say it was refreshing to read about two characters who were just friends. I loved what the author was doing here with the lost memory story line and I really enjoyed the mind reading aspect. Overall this was a really fast paced, fun read that I really enjoyed.
