Muscle Memory by Stylo Fantôme Release Blitz

Her lips, the way she feels, how she moves against me. Her voice when she laughs, her eyes when she cries. Her soul connected to mine, for better or for worse, for all eternity.

I don't remember.

A blank face. Unrecognizable. The darkness and impenetrable fog, day after day after day. Who am I? And for that matter, who is she?

I can't remember.

Two sides to the same coin – one wants to remember, and the other wants to stay forgotten. Which side will win? Can he trust his heart to bring him back to her? Or will she stay lost in the fog forever?

I might never remember.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This book was such a refreshingly different story from the conventional Contemporary Romance categorization! This is the story of true soul-mates.
I honestly haven't been able to read ANYTHING since finishing this, I just can't get these characters out of my head.

Jayson and Delaney met for nefarious reasons. I'm sure many readers have experienced the type of behavior these characters exhibited (maybe during a college phase?), and I cannot nor will I judge based on this. What I can say is that Love IS Love, no matter what walk of life. If you have an issue with drug use, PLEASE don't let that deter you from this book... it's NOT as it seems.

Emotional. Powerful. Heart-wrenching.
Ugly Crying, hysterically laughing, seriously swooning – the ENTIRE gamut of feelings.

What if the love of your life disappeared? How would you handle having to start over from scratch? Not knowing who you are, what you do, who your family is?

I can't say enough about this story. It has everything plus some. It's an amazing love story, it's an emotional drama, it has hints of suspense...
Read it. Seriously, Read THIS!!!

I was slightly hesitant about this story because it could have gone in so many different directions.

Jon/Jayson is a wild child who loves doing drugs and living without a care in the world. He has alienated his family because of his addiction but despite that, he finds himself surrounded by friends who become his family. He has found the love of his life, despite all of the obstacles they have in front of them and he knows that she is the one.

After his accident, he can't even remember his name or whether or not people would be looking for him. When nobody comes looking, he accepts that he must be alone. His caseworker, "Sloany" is both hilarious and caring. I loved her in this story. She was his constant and even when things were up in the air, he knew she would be there for him.

Kitty is a fixer. She sees people who need help and can't help but try to mold them in to what she believes will be the best version of themselves. However, she is also vapid and shallow. I didn't like her at all and after the stuff she pulled in the book, even at the end, I couldn't really get on her train.

Delaney is just as mixed up as Jayson, but she knows love has found her. Drugs and homelessness were just circumstances for her. She loved Jayson and didn't need anything else. When she loses Jayson, it's both devastating and eye opening. She finds her family again, she finds a way back to reality and even though her reality is forever altered because Jayson is gone, she knows he would want her to go on.

Jon and Delaney's story is heartbreaking. It's a train wreck that you can't help but watch and finally, when it happens, nothing will ever be the same. Through the heartbreak, the fogginess that covers Jon's memories, there is a light – he can feel it, but it's a memory that’s just at the edge of being remembered. The emotions are raw, real and you can really feel them come through the pages.

Fantôme did a great job at setting the stage, showing us glimpses of what happened and how the characters will muddle their way through. I really enjoyed this story.

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
