He was dead. And it was murder most foul. If erasing a man's existence could even be called murder. When Damien Mitchell wakes, he finds himself without a life or a name. The Montana asylum's doctors tell him he's delusional and his memories are all lies: he's really Stephen Thompson, and he'd gone over the edge, obsessing about a rock star who died in a fiery crash. His chance to escape back to his own life comes when his prison burns, but a gunman is waiting for him, determined that neither Stephen Thompson nor Damien Mitchell will escape. With the assassin on his tail, Damien flees to the City by the Bay, but keeping a low profile is the only way he'll survive as he searches San Francisco for his best friend, Miki St. John. Falling back on what kept him fed before he made it big, Damien sings for his supper outside Finnegan's, an Irish pub on the pier, and he soon falls in with the owner, Sionn Murphy. Damien doesn't need a complication like Sionn, and to make matters worse, the gunman-who doesn't mind going through Sionn or anyone else if that's what it takes kill Damien-shows up to finish what he started.… (lisätietoja)

This review is kinda spoilerish~

I'm gonna stop at 66% and leave it at that.
I think it was a mistake reading book #1 and this one one right after the other.

What I liked:
- Not much, actually. In the previous book the best parts were Miki and Dude. With them not in the spotlight... Well, I did like the reunion.

What I didn't like:
- I have forgiven Kane's cheesiness because I thought it was just how he is. And Miki's reactions to it were kinda funny. But, it seems the cheesiness is either a family trait or just the way this writer does things. Sionn's lines were... I can't find the right word, but this says it all:
"Hold on, Damie love," he whispered, suckling the spot he's bitten. "Let's see how close we can fly to heaven."

- There were lots of things that broke the flow of the story, like when D and Sionn were getting hot and heavy and D suddenly started comparing Sionn to Dread Pirate Roberts from The Princess Bride. Or when Sionn was looking for D and started talking to God in the middle of a full street when he found him.
- In general, people seem to do a lot of talking out loud to no one in particular in this series.
- The motivation of the villain is flaky at best. This has been said many times before but, why was Damie kept alive? If the motivation is money, why spend a load of it on an assassin?
- Speaking of the assassin, I get it. He is super bad. He is a sick fuck. But his bits of POV were not helping me wanting to continue reading the book.
- After talking a bit with Tara, the conclusion is that the way the Murphy family is speaking is just a bunch of words and phrases that sounded "Irish" enough thrown together. The word "boyo" especially made me think of really old Irish mobsters in American cop shows typically set in NY. Incidentally, the word isn't used anywhere in Ireland, by old people or young.

In the end, I didn't think I needed to finish this book to be able to enjoy(?) the third one, so I didn't.

I'm so glad I finally bit the bullet and read the first one of this series. If I hadn't, I might have missed out on this one!

In this book, the focus is on Damian. The progression from basically barely knowing who he is, or who to trust, to the man he should be is beautifully done. It's a very believable progression which is something I greatly appreciate.

Sionn is a man also with a history. Nothing like Damian, but he carries his own battle scars. Together they make an unlikely, but beautiful (and hot!) couple.

Miki and Kane also get airtime in this book, and once Damien comes back into the world as the "risen from the dead" rockstar, the action ramps up. I'll admit, the "who-dunnit" was slightly predictable, but enjoyable non the less..

I'm finding I'm loving this authors style. Her characters are strong, but flawed. Answers and solutions are fought for, not instantly fixed and her smexing? Well, very satisfying to say the least lol. I'm really looking forward to continuing this series. ( )

I enjoyed the love story here, Damien and Sionn are an interesting couple, both have a lot of baggage to work through and the scenes together are rich and full of depth. I loved Sionn's Gaelic coming through and could almost hear his Irish brogue.

The mystery portion, though, left me with more questions than answers. I want to know how Damien's death was faked, why wasn't he killed outright, why lock him away and make him believe he is someone else?

So I really like the story, and I hope there are more answers in the next book. ( )

DNF @ 74%

This is the only book I've read by this author so I'm not sure how fair it is for me to say this, but the writing just didn't do it for me. A bit, I don't know, flowery? Maybe?

Ordinarily I wouldn't have a problem leaving a star rating for a book I DNF'd so far into it (in this case 74%) but part of me wonders if this was just a case of "It's me, not you." It wasn't awful, per se, I just didn't like it. So I'm feeling generous: review, Check! Star rating, none given.

P.S. And I really didn't like the MC who owned the bar. I can't remember his name and I don't care enough to look it up. He just bugged me.
