Second chances come in many different shapes and sizes, but the one in this novel must be one of the hardest-won I have ever read about. Just imagine what it would be like to wake up in a hospital, wanting nothing more than your lover by your side, only to find a stranger sitting there and everyone looking at you funny for asking after the one person whose support you need to recover from being trampled by a bull. That is the situation Thaine faces when he wakes up after a severe bull-riding inj [...]
Sean Michaelwhy has thou forsaken me?I love, love, love Sean Michael's writing. They're one of my top go-to comfort reads. But oh lawd fave missed the mark with this one. When the only person you want to get a HEA isn't one of the "main" MC'sat's a problem.Thaine and Jerry are first class assholes and I wish them a lifetime of erectile dysfunction, back acne and flatulence. It's rare that I hate BOTH MC's in the main romance butat's exactly what happened here. One of my favorite singers, Jill Sc [...]
Hot cowboy love. Yum! This was an awesome book. Unique plot, sweet romance, hot manlove what more can a girl ask for? This book is purely m/m action, so make sure you're interested before you read this. If you do like m/m, this is the book for you! ;Dxoxo
The story starts with Jerry. He sees on the news that his ex-lover has been thrown by a bull and is in critical condition. He is not concerned and goes on with his work.Thaine wakes up in the hospital and has forgotten the last five years. He does not remember Drew, his lover for the last three years, and who has sat faithfully at his bedside. He wants the lover he had five years ago, Jerry. The Dr. tells Drew and Thaine's best friend, Jesse, to pretend it is five years ago. So they call Jerry, [...]
Sometimes I think this author is payed from page or from title. Sean Michael has very good novels and very very bad ones. The name is not guarantee of readable novel. But I will stop bragging about this lets go to the point or rather plot, because there is some of it and at the first it did not seem all too bad. Thaine was cowboy who was superstar in riding bull industryal bulls those with fur and horns and tail above their asses he was pro until one fury beast danced cancan on his skull and our [...]
This book is so strange I am not sure how to rate it. Beware I will definitely spoil when writing about what I think is wrong with it! Imagine a couple that just split and the story follows both ex partners after the split, this is what you get here. Thaine has been hurt in the arena by a bull and awakes in the hospital without knowledge of the last 5 years. His partner Drew is at his side but actually Thaine wants his ex Jerry to come and get him home. Drew is devastated and leaves with Thaines [...]
3.5 stars rounded up to 4. I think this book needed a bit more angst from everyone. When you lose 5 years of your life, I think there is more of an adjustment for everyone than we saw. It was just a tad too easy. It was ripe for more indepth characterization, more personal growth, more communication and more arguments than we got. As usual, lots of sex in ineresting ways and locations. With two couples the books is split and connected between both stories and both couples make the book a richer [...]
I liked Drew and Jesse a lot but I really didn't care for Jerry and Thaine. The were asses to Jesse and Drew and it irked me no end. Ok, Thaine has amnesia and maybe he doesn't know who Drew is, but you don't treat your boyfriend of three years like that. The whole "I don't remember you, so I don't know you and you can fuck off" attitude got on my nerves! Drew is such a nice guy he deserved better.
Ok, I think I am calm enough to write this review. It took a full day because I had to choose the right words. Amnesia captured two stories in one.Thaine and Jerry were like fire and timber. Five years ago it was the split heard around the world. The man that he had left due to both men being at different stages of life. Thaine and Drew were lovers for over three. It was obvious that Drew thought the man hung the moon. Thaine was older and wrapped up in his career as a bull-rider. One accident w [...]
A Joyfully Jay review. 3 starsAmnesia is one of the most overused tropes in romance stories – one that I typically avoid at all costs because it tends to be too “soap operish” but, when I saw that one of my favorite go to authors had this book coming out, I jumped at the chance. What I didn’t realize is that this story was originally published in 2006 by Torquere Press and has been re-released through Dreamspinner Press. I figured it out fairly quickly when the times/dates seemed to be a [...]
3 HeartsThis story I really liked the premise. I liked the overall plotline. I liked Drew and Jesse. But I did not like Thaine or Jerry.Thaine and Jerry had good chemistry. I actually liked their relationship. I thought it worked, and that they were clearly in love, and only separate because they didn’t have the same future planned out. But they were not nice people. Their behaviour towards Drew was snippy, dismissive, and downright bitchy. Even if you don’t remember someone, you don’t tre [...]
*2.5 rounded up to 3 stars* As one who has read numerous Sean Michael books, I knew going in what to expect. Lots and LOTS of sex, insta-love, and plenty of fluff. I also go into it knowing that suspending reality is a must. So in that respect, Amnesia was everything I thought it would be. The fact that the story follows two couples in the same book was a teeny bit different, but on the whole, the book pretty much followed the formula. That being said, I have to say Amnesia was a bit of a disapp [...]
How to sum it up? I didn´t like Thaine and I didn´t like JerryI hated how they kept calling Drew "kid". Hated how they treated him, like he was a one night stand and not a guy who spent years in a relationship with Thaine. Like ok, they loved each other and Thaine didn´t remember but they went about it all wrongThose stars are not for them, cause I didn´t like them at all therelolI liked Drew and I liked Jesse and thank god for their storyline
The amnesia trope is one I generally like, so points For that.It is Sean Michael so lots and lots and lots of sex. Take out the sex and we’re probably down to 50 pages.(view spoiler)[I actually liked Drew the best, poor hard done to guy though I do feel he could have stood up for himself a bit more initially. Thaine treats him really very badly - OK he has amnesia but he was particularly not nice to a guy who is also directly affected. Wasn’t keen on Jerry walzing in and taking over - yes he [...]
Das ist mir ja schon lange nicht mehr passiert. Ich habe mich nicht einmal dazu durchringen können, bis zur hundertsten Seite durchzuhalten.Die Sprache ist dermaßen abstoßend ich habe nichts dagegen, wenn es mal etwas derber zugeht, aber wenn in einem einzigen Satz dreimal das Wort `fuck` vorkommt, dann geht mir das wirklich zu weit. Nicht jeder Gedanke muss sich um Sex drehen, auch das ist vollkommen absurd.Und dann sollten Sätze wenigstens aus mehr als nur einem Wort bestehen.Dabei bietet [...]
Right out of hand, I grew very, very annoyed with this. (view spoiler)[Because clearly, poor Drew's going to get shunted to the side, (hide spoiler)] which causesed me to develop a rather intense and probably irrational (you know what, no. it wasn't irrational) dislike for Jerry. And also how (view spoiler)[conciliatory Drew was, the way the narration just laid things out. (hide spoiler)]And Thaine.I get why Thaine referred to Drew as a "kid" when he first wakes up (or rather, why the author has [...]
This book did not make me believe in the power of love. To be honest the two star rating is me being generous because the writing itself was solid. Apart from that I hated most of this book.The biggest problem for me with this book was how quickly both Thaine and Drew just started getting down with other people. I get why Thaine would since he didn’t remember their relationship, but Drew moving on so quickly I couldn’t believe. It was gross to me because I am vehemently anti-cheating and so [...]
I love a good cowboy story, especially one with a little angst. Thaine and Drew have been together for 3 years, after a bull riding accident that almost killed Thaine he doesn't remember Drew at all. He can't remember the last five years of his life and he still thinks he's in a relationship with his ex Jerry. Jerry comes running to Thaine's bedside when he learns of the accident from Thaine's best friend Jesse. Jerry and Thaine pick up their relationship where it left off five years ago, leavin [...]
Thaine is a bull rider and gets knocked off and has Amnesia he has forgot his current lover Drew completely and wants JJ his ex from 5 years ago. Jerry still has feelings so he comes to Thaine's side and takes him home for recovery. Drew's left with nowhere to go and no job or anything since he had been with Thaine for 3 years. Jesse, Thaine's best friend hires Drew to help on his ranch. Drew is devasted that Thaine doesn't remember him at all and even more shocked at how he treats him like tras [...]
I am torn whether to give this book 4 or 5 stars.Sean Michaels wrote a very good book. It contains some drool-worthy cowboys, and a good story line, but my perception is marred by my desire for the perfect fairy-tale. That failing is mine, but this book tramples on what I would consider to be a happy ending.(view spoiler)[The two main characters in this book were lovers, but Thaine obviously didn't really love Drew. Sure, Drew found love elsewhere, and in the end everyone is happy, but the main [...]
So, I’ve read most everything that Sean Michael has put out. And this, like all the others is about love, friendship and self discovery. Oh, and HAWT cowboys.Thaine, T, is a bull rider, has been for many years, until one night when the bull gets the better of him. Now he’s laid up in a hospital bed, and has lost the last five years of his life. So like many of us, he actually gets the ‘do over’ that some of us what/need.Jerry, JJ, was the BF of five years ago. Jobs, hard headiness, stubb [...]
Sigh Books where Mcs have a lot of testosterone per pages cause the pretty commom mistake of calling love something that is clearly lust.First off, Thaine acted like a heartless ahole, but at least he had the amnesia to blame for it. Jerry suddenly realizes he cant live without a man he didnt care about the last 5(!!!!) years and to complete the picture Drew, after being forgotten by the man he claims to love for the last 2-3 years, now is checking his ex's best friend barely days of his acciden [...]
1.5 Stars rounded up. UghI gave up at 41%obably should have given up sooner. When you start to skim through the sex scenes, it's time to wave the white flag. It just felt like sex scenes were inserted frequently between Jerry & Thaine when the actual storyline lagged. Henselots of sex that just turned my stomach. Not a prude, but it just became gratuitous IMO. Jerry & Thaine came off as a couple of Horndogs. On the other handwe had poor jilted Drewwho starts to mack on Jesse very soon af [...]
I loved this story and re-read it from time to time. Now that it's on the new cowboy romance list, I think I'll just have to read it again! You feel sorry for all three characters, but particularly for the current partner (it's been so long, I don't remember their names, but I was routing for the first partner getting together again with his lover). As usual, Sean comes through with great characters, a sound story and a happy ending. I love reading his books because you really understand where t [...]
Well, I accidently came across the blurb, loved the idea, and then I forgot the name of the book. I searched and searched for it and then found it a few days back. I was very disappointed, maybe because I was dying to read it. Maybe because there is just so much sex, I mean there are still 30 pages left to be read, and I am dreading them caus I know there must be like 5,6 sex scenes there. There were some fun parts, original lines and stuff, but so much was left unexplained, Thaine's memory issu [...]
From the moment Thaine regained consciousness, this was pretty much porn with little plot. I disliked all the MCs - the only one that got any sympathy from me was Drew - and really, really hated Jerry. What an asshole! There was no depth to the characters. This story should have been gutting but there was no emotional connection for the reader at all. The pacing was off, the dialogue was stiff, and the hospital sex scenes required me to suspend my disbelief a little more than I'm capable.
The first third of this book was really good, though I hated how Drew's storyline started out, poor guy. But by half way into the book, the plot went out the window and it was a full-on lovefest. We followed both couples as they sexed it up. Even at the end, when there was potential for Thaine to get back his memory, or even add a little drama into the mix, the author took the easy way out and happened. And everyone lived happily ever after *gag*.
Well I'll say this isn't my fav book but it was a good readI loved Jesse and Drew.butThaine and jjmmm JJ i didn't likei thoght he was very arrogantok he couldn't help the fact that Thaine lost his memory and thought they were together but still But Drew i thought was much better with Jesse anywayJesse had wanted him before the accident so he did get who he wanted.I good read but only four stars for just because JJ annoyed me x
1.5I was in the mood for a good cowboy book. I remember really liking this book years ago and thought I would give it a try again. It's so funny how times and tastes change because I ended up NOT liking the main heroes at all and didn't like the story too. Drew was the best part of the book and he was a secondary character that the two main characters were quite condescending too. Sorry, but this isn't my taste anymore.
Most unusually for a Sean Michael book I didn't love this. It's about a cowboy with amnesia who reconnects with the ex-lover he remembers whilst his current boyfriend ends up falling for the cowboy's best friend who's loved him for years from afar. This just didn't grab me in the way Sean's books normally do.
