Until We Are Gone by Gia Riley ~ Sarah A’s Review

Until We Are Gone, an all-new Standalone Emotional Romance by Gia Riley is NOW AVAILABLE!!

I wanted a family with Cash.

We had dreams –building a house, kids, a dog, and, yes, even the white picket fence.

Or so I’m told.

I don’t remember anything about my husband. Not the wedding or the vows we shared.

The past ten years were erased and with time, they’re supposed to come back.

But this isn’t your typical case of amnesia

What if I’m not supposed to remember?

What if I was meant to forget?

Maybe I don’t want my old life back.

Because if the accident hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have uncovered the truth.

Losing my memory wasn’t tragic.

Losing my memory was fate.

***  AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED  ***

Until We Are Gone captivated me, mind, heart, and soul from the second I opened the book.  Between the devastating accident Meadow had experienced and her addiction following it, I ached for her to find herself, find her happiness, find the life she deserved.

The characters in Until We Are Gone were flawed and hard to like at times, but they felt real, and I found them easy to identify with.  They were all merely searching for the things they’d lost, things they thought they still needed to be complete.  Meadow and Cash were frustrating and hard to like at times, but their motivations were so clear and understandable.  I loved them for their flaws and struggles.

Meadow and Cash’s story was heartbreaking in so many ways.  They were both so broken by the event that happened in the book and, it seemed, something that had happened before the story started.  Watching them try to cope, to understand, to recover from the traumas life had heaped upon them was hard, watching them slowly figure out what they thought was best for them and what they actually needed were completely different things was cathartic and beautiful.

There were a couple wishes I had for this book.  The first was that I still had a lot of questions regarding a relationship in this book, it kind of felt unfinished and I wish we would have got some more answers about it.  The second was a pretty big continuity issue; we first check in with Meadow after she’s been in rehab for a month and then the timeline is pretty well-defined as occurring over the course of a few days after which we are told she has been in rehab for three months.  The length of time she’s been in rehab didn’t seem to play a horribly integral part in the story, so changing it to one or the other would be an easy fix.

I’m fairly new to Gia Riley’s books, having only read one of her duets before this, but I am finding myself to be quite enamored with her writing.  Her stories are unique and engrossing, often looking into the darker parts of life we’d all rather pretend don’t exist.  I love that she gives a voice to those issues and does it in such a beautiful and respectful manner.

 Author Gia Riley has been in love with writing romance since high school when she took her very first creative writing class. From the small but mighty state of Delaware, she’s a country girl at heart, traveling back to her roots in Pennsylvania as often as she can.

While New Adult and Contemporary romance have been her passion, she’s dabbled with more erotic plotlines lately, enjoying discovering the sexier side of love with each story she pens. After all, she’s a lover of all things romance – a firm believer that everyone deserves their

happily ever after no matter what it takes to get there.

When she’s not writing, you can find her roaming the aisles of Kirkland’s, up to her elbows in Play-doh, or trying to hunt down spoilers for her favorite reality television show.

Losing my memory wasn’t tragic.

Losing my memory was fate.

The man grabs my hand and laces his fingers with mine, careful not to jostle the IV. Nothing about his hand is familiar, and I’m left wondering if it’s okay to be touching at all.

“Who are you?” I ask him, wondering why he still hasn’t told me his name. If he’s someone who saved me, then I want to know. I need to know. “Are you the pilot?”

He sucks in a breath, and the tears flow harder down his cheeks. There’s a long, uncomfortable pause, and he barely blinks.

A few seconds later, he clears his throat and says, “Cash. I’m Cash. Your husband.”

I search his face for anything familiar. A dimple. A wrinkle. Maybe a freckle. But nothing about him triggers a single memory. I should feel more than this. I should have love for the man I married. I’m not sure how long ago, but we exchanged vows. Vows I don’t remember. And I’m sure I wore a white dress, probably my dream dress, and I don’t even know if it was made of lace or satin. My first Holy Communion dress was an expensive chiffon, and I hated that itchy material, so I’m sure it couldn’t have been chiffon.

Cash brushes his finger down the side of my face, chasing away a tear. I didn’t realize I was crying.

“I think I want to be alone,” I whisper.

He pauses and then lets go of me.

I wait for him to say something, but he just tucks closed fists into his pockets and stares at the floor.
