Blurb (as on Goodreads):
Six men with no memories of the past
One leader with no hope for the future
A man without a past
Jax woke up in a lab, his memories erased, and his mind reprogrammed to serve a mad woman’s will. After being liberated from his prison, he pledged himself to the only thing he truly knows—his team. Six men who lost everything they were. They must make certain no one else gets their hands on the drugs that stole their lives, all while hiding from every intelligence organization on the planet. The trail has led him to an unforgiving mountainside and a beautiful wilderness expert who may be his only hope of finding the truth.
A woman with a bright future
River Lee knows her way around the Colorado wilderness. She’s finally found a home in a place called Bliss after years lost in darkness. The nature guide prefers to show her clients the beauty found in the land, but she also knows the secrets the mountains hold. When she meets Jax, something about the troubled man calls to her. She agrees to lead him to the site of an abandoned government facility hidden deep in the forest. She never dreamed she was stepping into the middle of a battlefield.
A love that could heal a broken soul
Spending time with River, Jax discovers a peace he’s never known. Their passion unlocks a side of himself he didn’t even know he was missing. When an old enemy makes his first move, Jax and River find themselves fighting for their lives. But when his past is revealed, will River be caught in the crosshairs of a global conspiracy?
Welcome to the world of Lost Boys. Here you get to meet tall, dark, handsome, somewhat-brooding, mostly crazy or innocent boys who are out there in the world to find more about their identity, which they lost because they were subjected to some crazy laboratory experiments.
Jax Seaborne, is one such lost soul, who is looking for a true connection in this world. Hence, when the Lost Boys visit Bliss, a small town, to find their secret past, and possibly a cure, Jax finds himself being drawn towards River, a resident and a local hiking guide.
But this is a world of secret, lies and manipulation, and Jax and River have a long road ahead to find their Happily ever after.
Lexi Blake has been one of my favorites, though I have never officially reviewed her work. The book doesn’t disappoint me either. There is a plot full of suspense and twists. The characters are complicated with a side of adorable. Each character has a past and the story switched between dark and happy sides. It is also a short and entertaining read, and I found myself engrossed in the plot more than once. The romance and the sex has been placed at regular intervals, but they didn’t sound unnecessary.
Memonto Mori is the first book of a series I am already looking forward too. Lexi Blake had written a great introduction and I would love to see the fate of the other characters and the mission in general.
