Leave it to Maryah Woodsen to break the one rule that will screw up eternity: Never erase your memories.

Before entering this life, Maryah did the unthinkable—she erased. Now, at seventeen years old, she’s clueless that her new adoptive family has known her for centuries, that they are perpetually reincarnated souls, and that they have supernatural abilities. Oh, and she's supposed to love (not despise) Nathan, the green-eyed daredevil who saved her life.

Nathan is convinced his family’s plan to spark Maryah's memory is hopeless, but his love for her is undying. After spending (and remembering) so many lifetimes together, being around an empty version of his soulmate is heart shattering. He hates acting like a stalker, but has no choice because the evil outcast who murdered Maryah in their last lifetime is still after her.

While Maryah’s hunter inches closer, she and Nathan make assumptions and hide secrets that rip them further apart. Maryah has to believe in the magic within her, Nathan must have faith in the power of their love, and both need to grasp onto the truth before they lose each other forever—and discover just how lonely eternity can be.


This is the oldest Kindle book left on my device, coming from 2015.

This starts with Maryah - pronounced Mariah - sulking after an argument with her parents and is hanging out in her family's boat when her twin brother tempts her back inside. Only she hears a scream and running up to the house she finds her family being slaughtered. The attacker leaves her for dead, too, but she somehow survives and ends up flying out to stay with her godmother in Sedona. The family is a little odd, managing to pull of amazing feats etc.

I struggled from the start with this. It didn't have the smooth style I'm used to and was taking way too long for something to happen after that initial attack. It was boring me.

I can't really go into much detail because I didn't get far into the book but this was not for me.
