Detectives Mitchell Reid and Joseph Valentino of the Chicago Police Department have finally moved from friends to lovers, partners on the job and off. Their new-found happiness is short-lived, however, when an escaped felon with a thirst for revenge shatters their world. The police tactical raid to recapture the convict goes horribly wrong, leaving Mitch severely wounded and Joey with a devastating head injury that plunges him into a long-term coma.
Two years later, Joey awakens with partial amnesia, which has erased a year of his life, including the knowledge that he and Mitch are lovers. Unwilling to force Joey back into a relationship if his feelings for him were no longer there, Mitch can only suffer in silence as he supports Joey on his long road to recovery, hoping he will remember the love they once shared.
Note: This is a second edition of a previously published book that has been re-edited, revised and expanded.
My Rating - 4 Stars!
Memory's Prisoner is a beautiful story of two lovers coming back to each other after tragedy. Jamie Lynn Miller pulls at our heart-strings as Mitch are Joey face horrific odds.
First we have to deal with the police raid that goes wrong, followed by Mitch's agony as he realizes his fate and Joey's status. We are taken on an emotional ride, as Joey spends two years in a coma, and then doesn't remember that he and Mitch are lovers. It is heart-breaking, but luckily doesn't leave us wondering for too long. It is a fast story, so a lot is crammed into it. Personally, if there was more detail, I would have been a sobbing mess. Luckily, as Jamie choose to keep this a short story, it is an easier ride for the reader.
I adore Jamie Lynn Miller's writing style and Memory's Prisoner is done perfectly. We smile, we cry, and we feel our hearts mending in the end. I love Mitch and Joey as a couple and am thrilled that they found their way back to each other, making this a feel-good story!
