Without her memories, Thraia Gabriella Fortunato doesn’t have a clue about her past. Kung paano siya dinala ng mga along sa isang na hindi pamilyar sa kanya ay lagpas sa kanyang pang-unawa. With only a stranger who says he is her husband, and friends who don’t have any clue of her past, too, she started to doubt everything.

Paanong may napapanaginipang siyang ibang lalaki? At paanong tuwing nananaginip siya’s halong pait at saya ang nararamdaman niya? And everytime she wakes up looking at her husband’s eyes, the stranger, Ali Mercadejas, she feels nothing indifference – very opposite to the way the man of her dreams make her feel.

In her journey to find the truth, will the waves guide her way back home or will it stretch the distance destiny has already given her?

Review

Once again, Jonaxx didn’t fail me in this story. I was so ecstatic and so overwhelmed when I read the first book of the Costa Leona series that’s why I am keeping an eye for its second book. And yep, I couldn’t wait any longer so I decided to just read it even if it’s still updating. Well, I’ve been thinking that the story is already on chapter 48, and based on her previous story, it usually ends with chapter 50, so I thought that it’ll be completed once I reach chapter 48. And guess what? Haha, it turns out that I reached chapter 48 in just one day, oh well, I can’t concentrate with my work if I know that there’s still some remaining chapters that I haven’t read.

Once in a while, I always find myself craving for some tagalog romance stories (specifically, from Jonaxx) especially if I’ve read a book that made me feel disappointed or have given me too much emotion.


As usual, I don’t know what to expect. I’ve enjoyed the first book from this series, so I am really expecting that I will feel the same way too, or even greater in this story. And tadaaah! I totally did. The plot, the scenes and the execution of lines were just perfect. What should I expect eh? Jonaxx is really so good at it.

Losing one’s memory was never new to me. I’ve read  books and watched some movies about it before so the idea is quite cliché for me. When I read about the “memory loss” thingy in its first chapter, I should have felt disappointed right? But to my surprise, I didn’t. Why is that? Well, Jonaxx hasn’t failed me and I am confident that she’ll never fail me now. And yep, I was right. I never thought losing one’s memory could be this exciting, so romantic, so intense, while at the same time so haywire. 

I am never a fan of a relationship with no labels or the one started without courtship. I may not look like it, but I am very conservative and I’m a “Dalagang Pilipina“. This story is definitely the exact opposite of what I like but surprisingly, it is still able to catch my FULL attention. I am so excited to know more about what’s going to happen next that’s why I was so fast and able to finish it in a day even if I was quite busy at work. 

This story contains some “sexy” scenes and I can’t help but blush, haha. What I also love about the author is that with every story that she writes, it’s not just her age matures, but also her way of writing her stories (especially the “sexy” scenes, haha). I’m not usually a fan of New Adult Romance because it usually contains abundant “sexy” scenes which (for me) destroys the whole story, but with Jonaxx, na ah ah. I learn to somewhat love it (not the abundant “sexy” scenes but the genre, haha), but only when I am reading her stories. Unlike other Adult Romances, her’s retains the story. It doesn’t destroy the whole essence of her story and doesn’t just revolve around those “sexy” scenes. There’s so many events and exciting scenes in this story that even if it has quite long 50 chapters, I am still craving for more.

She also introduces her characters briefly and you can easily keep track of them because she don’t usually introduces so many of them in one story, though sometimes I find it hard to remember their names (especially that I’m not usually good with names), but good thing she provides easy to remember nicknames for them. ALL her male leads never fail to make me squeal in delight and act like a complete lunatic. Even as I am writing this review, I can’t help the stupid grin in my face because I keep on imagining them. All of them are likeable and I can’t even pick one, because obviously, they’re all my dream guys, haha.

I don’t know when I started to stop mentioning her female leads (I think for this review?), because obviously, I keep on saying the same things about them, haha. If you don’t know why, don’t worry, it’s positive and not a negative thing. So I guess, it’s really just ok if I skip them. (Haha, I think I just want to think that there’s no female lead and it’s just me)

And lastly, this story didn’t just bring out the lunatic in me because of those blushing-worthy romantic scenes and lines but it also made me cry, huhu. I didn’t cry because it’s awful, but because of the emotional scenes especially in the last chapter. It’s just so heartbreaking yet fulfilling at the same time and I can’t help but feel so sorry for Ivo (third party). Don’t worry dude, I’m still available, haha sucker.

I know there’s no such thing as perfect, but with this story, I think there really is. That said, this story is highly recommended.

    Oh wow. it sounds like this book put you through the wringer with all the emotions it brought out in you. To me, that’s always a winner. It’s rare when a book can make me feel so much.
