Seven years ago, I found myself, bruised and broken, standing at my grandmother’s door, preparing the one and only lie I’d ever tell her. I couldn’t tell her how I had truly come by those bruises. I couldn’t tell her HE did it. I couldn’t be that cliche. She took me in. Fixed me. Advised me. Now, I live in her house and run her coffee shop in the best place in the world, Balboa Island. This island, the locals… everything was predictable… right down to the weather, just the way I liked it – no surprises. When she passed, she left it all to me.
It was my safe haven, my happy place.
Max came back.

REcovered was a very enjoyable read. This is a new author to me and I hadn’t read anything with mystery in it in a while. And there was lots of mystery in this one. It starts with a bang! Lilianna decides it’s time to let go of her relationship with her professor, but the professor is not going to let her go so easily. And, the drama begins!!
“I wanted to move on from my damaged self. I wanted this with Max. Still, there was a part of me that was afraid.”
Seven years later Lili is trying her hardest to get her life back when a blast from the past turns up and changes everything…for the good and bad. What she thought was her quiet and safe life is then changed. Who can she trust?? Who is to blame?? I had my suspicions the whole time but so many things happen that made me second guess myself.
“What is he doing to me? This is not normal behavior for me, at all…ever. Each time he touches me, I become some animal controlled by hormones and instinct.”
I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery, and trying to piece everything together. The story also has a lot of steam to it. At times I felt the sex scenes were a little too repetitive but they were still hot 😉 I enjoyed the dialogue, and the writing style flowed smooth for me. The end started to feel a tad rushed in my opinion but not enough to take away my enjoyment. I just felt I needed a little more at the end. And then the actual end happened and I was left thinking, WHY!?! I didn’t expect things to end the way it did, but it just makes me anxious to get my hands on the next book , to hopefully get answers to all my questions. REcovered comes recommended by this Book Bitch and if you are in to mystery with a side of sex, this is the read for you 🙂
