Unchained Memory (Book 1) by Donna S. Frelick

 Three hours ripped away her past. His love promised her the future.From the night she wakes up in her pickup on the side of the road, three hours gone and everything of value lost to her, Asia Burdette is caught in a clash of invisible forces. She has only one ally in her struggle to understand why-Ethan Roberts, a man she shouldn’t love, a psychiatrist who risks everything to help her.With black ops kidnappers dogging their trail, the lovers race to navigate a maze of mind control, alien abduction, and interstellar slavery. If they keep following the signs, they’ll find a battle that’s been raging since the first silver saucer was spotted in the skies above Earth.

From the first chapter, this book had me hooked! From the heartbreaking beginning to the suspenseful adventure, nowhere did the story lag or become slow. Asia lost 3 hours of her life before everything came crashing down around her. Three years later, she is still trying to piece that time frame together so she can get on with her life. Ethan is her psychologist and he helps her in a way no one else has. Their relationship goes from Dr/Patient to lovers after he is finished treating her. WOWZA! Talk aobut steamy and intense! I love these two together!

The story is full of suspense and intrigue in a sci-fi world…..HELLO, aliens! The author is so good at telling the story that I never once doubted that the world she created was anything but real! We’ve all read that book where we question what is going on and are full of disbelief? Well, that doesn’t happen here! I can’t express enough how much I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of this series!
