New York Times bestselling author JB Salsbury makes her Forever debut with a stand-alone unforgettable new novel, with a twist no one will see coming . . .
What do you do when you wake up with no memory of what you did last night?
Lucas spent the first half of his life protecting himself from others, but now his own mind is his biggest enemy. He doesn’t know what happens when the blackouts overtake him, but he can recall the feelings—the rage, the confusion, the fear. Thankfully the quiet life he’s found in Payson, Arizona has kept the darkness at bay. Until his boss’s estranged daughter shows up in town, asking questions she shouldn’t and sparking a desire Lucas can’t control. Getting close to Shyann is the best thing that’s ever happened to him, but when his blackouts return, unleashing the truth he’s battled so long to hide, he may just lose her forever . . .

~ 5 Uniquely Different Stars ~
You haven’t seen JB Salsbury like this before. Split is so different from any other book she has written. JB knocked this one out of the park.
This book was beyond amazing!! I honestly can’t say enough about this book. It had my heart racing from page one and it didn’t stop until the last page. This book was filled with intriguing, mystery, lies, betrayal, but most of all love. I loved the underlying theme JB put into this story. Everybody is lovable. And in this age of all the BULLYING going on, this story shows that it is okay to embrace your differences and love the person for who they are.
I really can’t tell you about the storyline at all because this is a book you HAVE to go into blind. All I can say is that this is a slow burn love story between Lucas and Shyann, but this story isn’t anything but slow moving. There is always so much going on you won’t be able to put this book down once you start it. The storyline is one that was new to me and I loved that. It was totally refreshing to read about something I haven’t before. I will WARN readers…..there are some parts to this story that could be hard for some to read.
Split was a story about love, differences, and redemption. JB creating a story that was the prefect web of lies, betrayal and intrigue, with an underlying love story, you are sure not to forget about anytime soon. This was an wonderfully written story, well thought out and researched. I found the pace and flow of this story was spot on. I honestly don’t think anything needed to be changed about this book. I loved the characters she gave us, Shyann and Lucas were outstanding. I truly believe everyone needs to meet them. As for the secondary characters, some I loved and other not so much. You be the judge 😉
I honestly can’t rave enough about this book. It had everything I look for in a 5 star read!! One of the best books of 2016 for me. This is definitely a book you don’t want to miss reading. Split is a standalone novel written in Dual POV and I don’t think it could’ve been written any other way. Don’t wait….READ this book NOW. I don’t think you will be sorry.
“You can’t jump.”
She narrows her eyes on me. “Of course I can.”
“Is it safe?”
My grip on her grows tighter and she steps close enough that I can feel the heat of her breasts brush against my ribs. “Lucas, do you trust me?”
“No.” The word comes out on a shaky whisper.
A gentle grin softens her face and with both her hands she works to relax my hold enough for her to slip free. Seconds later she turns, takes four long strides, and disappears off the rock cliff.
A holler that can only be described as guttural exhilaration echoes off the canyon walls and slices through the trees.
I race to the edge and there’s nothing but a circle of white bubbles marring the once shimmering pond.
I wait for her to surface, and just when I’m about to jump in and rescue her, her head pops up out of the water with a feral howl.
“That was amazing!” She waves at me. “The water is perfect!”
With adrenaline coursing through my veins, I allow myself a moment to wonder what it would be like to be as free as Shyann. Everything I do is weighed against the danger of doing it. The threat of blacking out always pulling me back to walk the safer, less risky side of any situation. But something about her makes me want to try harder, makes me want to take a risk like other twenty-five-year-old guys. The sound of her squealing lights a fire in my chest that has me wanting to jump.
Risking a blackout might be worth the few seconds of euphoria I haven’t felt since…I can’t remember.
I think of backing away and yelling for her to meet me at the truck, but something pulls me toward her. Part of me wonders if it’s nothing more than wanting to be close, to keep her safe, because she belongs to Mr. Jennings and I owe him. But even as the thought enters my mind, so does another.
I want her to like me.
I want her to see me as brave.
I want to know what it’s like to be normal.
