It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them.

Not the best way to wake up, right? I work in a flower shop. I know a funeral arrangement when I see one.

I know a killer when I see one, too. And one is standing in my hospital room right now, straight behind the man who saved my life.

I can’t tell anyone the truth, because that’s the fastest way to really die. So I do the next best thing. I “lose” my memory. 

I fake my amnesia.

Pretending not to remember a brutal attempted murder has its perks. The killer is backing down, spending less time around me, loosening the noose.

The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me “remember.” I hate lying to him.

But he doesn’t understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him.

Fooling everyone isn’t easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

Except it’s starting to look like I’ve been fooling myself.

In more ways than one.

Read Book 1 in the newest series from USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.


  • The best Meli Raine yet!

    By Cookrma
    This book grabs you from the first words. Blink..I love the way it is told from Lily's point of view. Superb writing. This follows the Shameless series so some old friends and enemies make their appearances. Lily is recovering after being shot in the head. I am so glad Meli made the recovery of Lily hard work. Rehab can be a grueling process. But the success of that hard work is so rewarding. Duff, Lily's bodyguard, is one tough guy. With a sensitive side that slowly peaks out through the book. Is the killer still after Lily? Did Lily see who actually shot her? Can she tell anyone? I cannot wait for the next book!

  • OMG! I can’t get enough

    By Allena333
    The ending leaves you breathless, yearning for more just like every book prior to this one. Typically, I find that most book series start to wind out of control and go way off base as each new book is released. This is NOT the case for Meli Raines series. She never disappoints me. I waited forever for this new book and now I’m dying with curiosity to read the next book. December is far too long to have to wait. If you want a series that is truly engaging, sexually intriguing, full of mystery and suspense, this is the perfect series for you! I recommend reading the first series “Breaking Away- Finding Allie”. Once you start reading, you begin this amazing journey with each character and plot twist. It’s a journey you don’t want to miss. I only wish I could read the next book prior to its release. I’m hooked, line and sinker!
  • Read in one sitting - you can’t stop!

    By Ghost Plane
    From the opening pages when you’re so deep in our heroine’s head that you feel everything she’s feeling down to her sticky eyelids all the way to the oh my god, don’t end it yet, I’m not ready fo leave them, where’s the next book, I NEED more of them ending, this author just gets better and better. For pity’s sake get on her mailing list so you can keep up with when the next goes on pre-order and catch snippets. Because these characters are unforgettable.
  • Love it

    This was an amazing but heart aching story about Lily and how trying to outsmart the person trying to kill her.
  • Another perfect start

    By Erin ~ Nerdy Dirty & Flirty
    Every time I finish one of Raine’s books, I am completely blown away. Each story so perfectly executed. Not only do all the intricate pieces build the suspense and excitement, but they all fit perfectly together in stunning ways. Danger around every corner, never knowing who to trust...it’s thrilling!! Lily’s first book delivered all of that. I. Am. Hooked! Raine has an incredible ability of being able to transport you into her stories. I could feel Lily’s discomfort, her fear, it was palpable. I have no idea what’s going to happen next and I love it! I can’t get enough of these trilogies. Raine’s writing is superb and the storytelling is brilliant. She has fast become a must read author for me. I’m dying to get my hands on the next installment!!
  • Oh! My!

    By Doingthisforcoinsssssdzzzzz
    Lily has come out of a 14 month coma after being mistakenly shot in the head. She slowly starts to piece things together the man who tries to kill her appears—one of the men on her security team. To stay alive, she fakes amnesia about the shooting. She doesn’t know who can trust, not even Duff or Jane, the intended victim. This tale was full of suspense and twists and a very real feeling of what a survivor of such violence would go through to recovery. It also has a a growing connection and attraction between Lily and Duff spices with uncertainty and distrust. Can’t wait for the next one!
  • WOW

    By Lisa Somerville
    Just WOW! False Memory is book #1 in the False series by Meli Raine. Meli has a way of writing that makes you keep reading until the book is finished. Note that in true Meli writing fashion, this book ends in a cliffhanger! False Memory is told by Lily's point of view. She awakens from a coma after being shot 14 months ago, when she was mistaken for her friend Jane. Lily quickly realizes that she has to pretend that she doesn't remember who shot her, if she lets on that she remembers, she will not survive, as her fake amnesia is the only thing that is keeping her alive. "I know I know. But I don't know what I don't know. That's what will get me killed. For real." This is a fast paced read and will leave you anxiously waiting for book 2! In book 2, will Lily finally admit to Duff that she's been faking her amnesia since she woke from her coma? "When were you going to tell me you've been faking the amnesia, Lily? Before or after I sleep with you?"
  • Thrilling journey

    By Cali Jewel
    This is an emotionally gripping beginning to what promises to be a thrilling trilogy.... looking forward to learning more about his journey that begins with a woman waking up from a coma in a room with two very different men. One is the man that attempted to kill her and the other saved her. Love it! Can she convince everyone long enough to save her life??? Highly entertaining and on the edge of my seat for the next book.
