My perfect life…
True, I'm in the hospital waking up from a coma, but my loving parents and adorable boyfriend, Wyatt, are here by my side. It's weird that I don't remember them—thanks, amnesia! Wyatt's an amazing person. He's a Big Brother, volunteers at soup kitchens, delivers food to the hungry—your basic angel. Your basic filled-out-in-all-the-right-places, naughty-thoughts-inducing angel, that is.
Might be the perfect lie…
In fact, the more I get to know Wyatt the harder it is to believe he's my boyfriend. The more I find out about my life before the accident, the more I don't like who I used to be. I can't understand what a guy like that—kind, considerate, generous—would see in a girl like me.
I don't know what's worse, living in the darkness of amnesia or discovering the despicable person I once was. But I've got to figure out if I have what it takes to be the person Wyatt truly deserves—before I lose my heart as well as my memories.
Olivia is a fun loving twenty-year-old UCLA student who loves the good life. She has a loving family, a best friend who always stands by her named Chloe, and a hot boyfriend Wyatt who is one of the few actual nice guys out there. But her life seems somehow too good to be true. As Olivia delves into her past, will she like what she finds?
Olivia Christakos and Her Second First Time is a standard chick lit amnesia tale. Pretty woman wakes up and doesn’t remember who she is. However, that doesn’t mean that this is not a good read. The characters are all well fleshed out and the pacing is spot on. Chapters alternate between the past and present, introducing us to the new and old Olivia in pieces. It is interesting to see the two different times and how the people in Olivia’s life intersect. This is a cute story that, while being formulaic, still manages to throw a few twists and turns in.
