Reclaimed - Sarah Guillory

Jenna Oliver doesn’t have time to get involved with one boy, let alone two.

All Jenna wants is to escape her evaporating small town and her alcoholic mother. She's determined she'll go to college and find a life that is wholly hers—one that isn't tainted by her family's past. But when the McAlister twins move to town and Jenna gets involved with both of them, she learns the life she planned may not be the one she gets.

Ian McAlister doesn't want to start over; he wants to remember.

Ian can’t recall a single thing from the last three months—and he seems to be losing more memories every day. His family knows the truth, but no one will tell him what really happened before he lost his memory. When he meets Jenna, Ian believes that he can be normal again because she makes not remembering something he can handle.

The secret Ian can’t remember is the one Luke McAlister can’t forget.

Luke has always lived in the shadow of his twin brother until Jenna stumbles into his life. She sees past who he’s supposed to be, and her kiss brings back the spark that life stole. Even though Luke feels like his brother deserves her more, Luke can’t resist Jenna—which is the trigger that makes Ian's memory return.

Jenna, Ian, & Luke are about to learn there are only so many secrets you can keep before the truth comes to reclaim you



Right from the moment I heard about this book I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I have been on a huge contemporary kick lately and I just thought this one sounded incredible. All my expectations for an awesome novel were met and completely surpassed. I loved every single second of this book and I couldn't put it down.

All Jenna wants is to graduate and get out of this deadend town where nothing happens other than having to look after her alcoholic mother. But then Luke and Ian McAlister come to town. Jenna likes being with Ian. It doesn't matter that he can't remember his past. He is sweet and gently. But then she meets Luke. Luke is dangerous and the epitome of bad boy and Jenna can't resist. Torn between the two of them they all get lost on a journey of lies and secrets but it's only so long before the truth comes out.

Sarah Guillory is an incredible, uprising author. Her writing style is incredible and I found it hard to believe that this was actually her debut novel. Her writing style reads as if it's a craft that has been perfected over years and years. That writing style being so addictive and perfect and grabbing just makes me so incredibly excited to follow her writing throughout the next few years and see just how much further she goes. She is definitely an author to look out for.

Reclaimed is such a unique and incredible storyline that had be guessing from start to finish. I genuinelly couldn't figure out what had happened in the characters past and what was going to happen. One thing I adore about this book is that it has an air of mystery to it. You don't know what happened in the past to make Luke and Ian's relationship what it is now and what caused Ian's memory loss. I couldn't stop reading as I just needed to know what had happened and ended up reading this book super fast. It was addictive.

The plot twist in this book is one you will never see coming. I am always trying to guess what's going to happen in books and holy crap I did not see that coming at all. At one point I thought I was seeing things and had read it incorrectly as it was so unexpected I was like "WHAT? Hold crap NO WAY! What the heck just happened?" I was so shocked and amazed and gobsmacked and every other surprised feeling you can think of that was me.

Reclaimed was one of the best debuts I have ever read. I was completely amazed. It was everything I was hoping that it would be and even more. I loved every single second of it and I cannot wait to see what Sarah Guillory will come up with next. Just by reading this one book she wrote she is now on my automatic buy list where I will read anything she writes. Reclaimed was phenomenal and is without a doubt a must-read. Watch this space guys because this book is gonna be huge!
