Has Fate given her a second chance?
'Zoe' is having a very bad day. As if getting trapped in a faulty elevator wasn't bad enough, losing her memory has made it much worse. If there's one piece of luck, it's that the paramedic on the scene, Noah, is both kind and a handsome distraction...
Now a completely blank canvas, with the help of Noah, 'Zoe' is excited to fill her world with colour, creativity and sweet and spicy food. She just knows from the tips of her toes, right to her fleek brows, that these things were all part of her make-up.
But when her identity is traced, the life 'Zoe' was living before the accident bears no resemblance to that of the person she's convinced she is. What happened to make her world so narrow and colourless?
And now she has the chance to start over, is it time to let the real Zoe out?
So I was in the mood for something a little bit joyous and uplifting. Just the Way I Am was just the right book for me. I read it non-stop this morning in the need to devour this and find out more about Noah, Zoe and everyone else.
I did feel like this was a a story about Zoe finding her feet and deciding what she wants to do with her life. After the accident and having no memory she explores her likes, her dislikes and tries some things for the first time! I loved her relationship with Noah. Without going into too much detail he is considerate, sexy as hell and knows when to say the right thing. He is definitely a man you want in your life when you’ve lost your memory.
Throughout I laughed and cried. I was with Zoe the whole way through. At times I wanted to shake her and see what I was seeing, at other times I wanted to hi-five her.
This felt like a book that I needed to read. Just the Way I Am is about accepting yourself, about realising that not everything is as it seems. And, no matter what if you want to be come something more, to change, no matter what you can.
Just the Way I Am was one of the BEST BOOKS I HAVE READ ALL YEAR. One where I couldn’t keep a smile of my face and a need to keep reading. And that ending was shocking! But in a good way I love how everything came together in the end.
This book was so much fun to read! As always check out the other blogs for the other stops, all their Social Media is below.
