Once again, Jonaxx didn’t fail me with 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 basing on her previous story, it usually ends with chapter 50, so I thought that it’ll be completed once I reached 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! It totally did. The plot, the scenes and the execution of lines were just perfect. What do 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 with the same plot 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 haven’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 is a “Dalagang Pilipina“. This story is definitely the exact opposite of what I like but surprisingly, it still able to catch my FULL attention. I am so excited to know more 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.
I am not fond of getting pimples, but sometimes, I feel proud of it. Why is that? Because it’s a sign that I truly enjoy a story ‘coz obviously, I can’t sleep without finishing it. (My eyebags doesn’t count because it’s somewhat permanent, haha lol)
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 they 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 retain the story. It didn’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 fails to makes 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 have any idea how she does that, ‘coz I can’t think of any celebrities or someone from the internet I find interesting but only her characters, haha.
I don’t know where I started to stop mentioning about 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 cried because it’s aweful, but because of the emotional scenes especially on 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. You can read it for free in Wattpad. Link is provided above and just below this post. Enjoy reading!
