From Audie Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Kylie Scott comes an irresistible new romance - available in audio first!

When a vicious attack leaves 25-year-old Clementine Johns with no memory, she's forced to start over. Now she has to figure out who she was and why she made the choices she did - which includes leaving the supposed love of her life, tattoo artist Ed Larsen, only a month before.

Ed can hardly believe it when his ex shows up at his tattoo parlor with no memory of their past, asking about the breakup that nearly destroyed him. The last thing he needs is more heartache, but he can't seem to let her go again.

Should they walk away for good, or does their love deserve a repeat performance?

My Thoughts

I did not know what to expect when I started reading Repeat and I LOVE it! First, I am not a fan of amnesia romances because it’s just an iffy slope, especially if there is some deception involved. And I just want to say that Repeat IS NOT that!

Yes, it is about a heroine who has retrograde amnesia and basically lost all her memory. But what differentiates this book from others is the twist – Repeat is a second chance romance! Apparently, the heroine Clementine, and the hero Ed broke up a month before the attack on Clementine, which resulted in her amnesia. What I love about this book, though is that we are never given the real reason why they broke up at the start of the book. We basically find out the reason why they broke up as it is revealed to Clem, which I ABSOLUTELY love! Also, it adds a little bit of mystery and I actually liked guessing the reason why they broke up.

Of course, one of the things I guessed right was the villain in the book. When this character was introduced, I knew this person was the villain – it was really obvious. Which is why I liked that the reason why Clem and Ed broke up was kept a secret from the readers. Otherwise, it would have been meh.

Another thing I want to point out here is that there is no Ed POV in this book. The whole book is in Clem’s POV and I kept wishing for Ed’s viewpoint. However, I also liked that Ed doesn’t have his own POV. Yeah, I know I’m weird. The reason why I wanted his POV at times was that I wanted to find out what his thoughts were when he discovered that Clem didn’t remember him or couldn’t even remember why they broke up. Also, Ed was supposedly heartbroken from the break-up a month before and I just wanted to get into his head! I know, I can’t have it both ways!

I took down one star because I knew when I met a certain character that this character was a villain! While there wasn’t really make a huge emphasis on this, I picked it up very early on and I was already spotting all the weird things about this character, so that ruined the ultimate reveal for me.

Clem also doesn’t recover from her amnesia, which was very refreshing! Oftentimes, in amnesia romance, the person having the amnesia regains their memory at the climax of the book, Repeat does not do that! I was absolutely delighted that Clem didn’t recover from her condition, which felt real.

This audiobook is narrated by the amazing Andi Arnt and I was not disappointed! She is one of my favorite female audiobook narrators, too! Her tone and pacing are perfect for the overall feel of the book. If you’re an audiobook listener, I highly recommend that you get the audiobook, especially if you subscribe to the Audible Romance Package.

Repeat was an emotional and enjoyable read for me and I think this is my favorite Kylie Scott book!

    I haven’t read any Kylie Scott books, but this sounds like a good one! I will read & not listen, as I am not a fan of audio books. Thanks for the review!

  2. I love me some Kylie Scott and I’m excited for this one. I’m with you on the amnesia trope… it can be tricky and often just feels like a device to be used for conflict/drama. And then at the end the person magically recovers all memories, the end. *insert much eye rolling* Glad to see that’s not the case here! And the fact that Andi Arndt narrates… I’m so on board!
