Book 1, False

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.
“…intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller…”
While the immediate—and more compelling—tension in Raine’s (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily’s constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals.
Fortunately, Lily’s voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily.

Praise for Meli Raine’s books:
“Fresh, riveting, and thrumming with emotion and romantic suspense, False Memory is absolutely unputdownable. You need this book!” - New York Times bestselling author Meghan March
“I accidentally lost a day to this trilogy! It is unputdownable. Apparently I'm on a dark-and-twisty binge, and this book is addictive.” - USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen (Harmless series)
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!
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?"
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.
