Charlize Wynwood and Silas Nash have been best friends since they could walk. They’ve been in love since the age of fourteen. But as of this morning…they are complete strangers. Their first kiss, their first fight, the moment they fell in love…every memory has vanished. “I don’t care what our real first kiss was,” he says. “That’s the one I want to remember.”
Charlize and Silas must work together to uncover the truth about what happened to them and why. But the more they learn about the couple they used to be…the more they question why they were ever together to begin with.
“I want to remember what it feels like to love someone like that. And not just anyone. I want to know what it feels like to love Charlie.”
Simultaneous recurring voodoo amnesia is going to be a hard sell for me. Not only because of the similarities to one of my least favourite tropes (Groundhog Day) but because it was too fantastical for this very ordinary world. In addition, the repetitiveness is hard to get past – it feels like a ‘highlights’ episode of a bad tv show where they just reread journal entries and letters for an entire book and try to convince each other they’re in love and that they’re not terrible, entitled people. Spoiler alert – they’re pretty terrible, entitled people.
The only reason for 2.5 stars instead of two is at least it’s a unique idea, especially for CoHo.
