Memory is everything.

After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date. Unmoored and struggling to face his new reality, Leith must cope anew with painful revelations about his family. His brother is there to support him, but it’s the unfamiliar face of Zach, a man introduced as his best friend, that provides the calm he craves. Until Zach’s presence begins to stir up feelings Leith can’t explain.

For Zach, being forgotten by his lover is excruciating. He carefully hides the truth from Leith to protect them both from additional pain. His bottled-up turmoil finds release through vlogging, where he confesses his fears and grief to the faceless Internet. But after Leith begins to open up to him, Zach's choices may come back to haunt him.

Ultimately, Leith must ask his heart the questions memory can no longer answer.

My review: 

I fell in love with the cover then I read the blurb and I needed to read this book. 

Sadly, it wasn't as good as I hoped. It was good, but not perfect. 

The amnesia story was good, loved the whole love story behind it. Leith and Zach's love was really good - before. Then the amnesia happend. 

Leith's POV was really good, I loved him and his struggle to try to remember. Zach's video diary was good too. But I hated Zach. I couldn't get over what he done and what he tried to do. Leith was suffering enough, he tried really hard to be his friend while Zach couldn't see over his own self pity. He couldn't get over the loss of Leith's memory loss of them and their love. He said he was over it, but no - and it was really sad to see. 
Leith only wanted to love him, to be love and do new memories with Zach. While Zach only wanted the old Leith. Every. Fckin. Minute. He wanted the old Leith. 

It was a good love story, I really liked the book, but Zach and his idiocy was too much. I get that it hurt him that Leith forgot everything, but Zach only cared about himself.

There were some romantic scene and some erotica too, but nothing really amazing that I can highlight.

I'm sad about this book.
