    Wow, I did not see that coming. The twist at the end that is. He doesn?t know his name. He doesn?t know his secret. When Daniel woke up from a coma he had no recollection of the life he lived before. Now, fourteen years later, he?s being forced to remember. A phone call in t...

    Thank you to NetGalley and HQ Digital for an advanced copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review of the book. The book centers on Daniel, who is on the cusp of a new chapter in his life. Daniel is about to propose to his girlfriend, a woman that is a natural fit with his young...

    There were a few things that irritated me, hence the three stars. One was the continual references to pain due to injuries sustained by the main character, and prising his own tooth out with a piece of plastic seemed implausible. Second was the fact that the main female character susta...

    I received this book for free from Netgalley in return for my honest opinion. I really enjoyed this emotional book but at times it was slow and I didn't think I would finish it. Daniel wakes up from a coma and he can't remember what his life was before. 14 years later, he's force...

    Actually 4.5 stars but I have rounded up. I really enjoyed this author's debut - Our Little Secret - when I read it last year so I was quite excited to get my hands on this, his follow up book. It's always a bit scary starting a book with high expectations but, on the whole, this foll...

    3.5 stars. I liked the premise of this book because it is essentially about uncovering secrets from one's own past. That seems to be common in Harlan Coben books and he is my favorite author. The other element that I enjoyed was the Daniel, the main character was in a sort of race agai...

    I received an ARC from Net Galley and publisher HQ Digital in exchange for an honest review. To be perfectly honest, the start of this book was a struggle for me. It's not really anything to do with the book itself but this is definitely not my brand of thriller. The story centers a...

    This book is intense from start to finish. The pacing was amazing and I never wanted to put it down. The main character has suffered amnesia and can not remember anything from before his car accident. Nothing. We start out learning about his current life. His relationship with his ...

    Great psychological thriller! I was enthralled by this story from the beginning. Then the last 15% had an ending I never saw coming. Outstanding!! Thanks to NetGalley and publishers for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. ...

    ????STARS ARC BOOK REVIEW Release Date-5/5/18 This was a fabulous edge of your seat read that I can't really say too much about without giving away the whole plotline so I'm going to try to keep it as vaguish as possible. So this was my second book by this particular au...

    Rarely does a book grip me from the beginning, but usually if it does, the tempo dies down and falls into a lull until the final few explosive chapters. This book not only gripped me from the get go, but the shocks, twists and heart stopping turns just continued to hit me with a for...

    Wow. What a ride! I hadn't read any of O'Sullivan's work before so wasn't sure what to expect, but loved the cover and am a big fan of the current thrillers out there, so... This story certainly held its own. The writing is pacy, gripping and my eye didn't slip once. O'Sullivan demons...

    Having recently read Our Little Secret by Darren O?Sullivan, I was very keen to get my hands on Close Your Eyes and I have to say that this new book is even better than the fabulous debut by this exciting new talent! I know I?m a fast reader but even I was amazed by the speed in wh...

    This novel is another one with a short, sharp and snappy synopsis. One that grabs your interest immediately. A coma patient with no memory, no recollection of a life once lived and 14yrs later he must recover those memories. Get ready for a fast-paced and action-packed read! The no...

    So I had the pleasure of meeting the author Darren not so long ago, and as he is local to me, it was a huge incentive to read his book, not that I needed it as blurb sounded hugely intriguing.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this despite finding it a little slow to begin with, but t...

    Standard blueprint, nothing original about this one. Dully presented with a super obvious villain: it was almost insulting how obvious it was. Instantly forgettable, along with the zillion other books with this same formula. Joe-civilian embroiled in a mystery, trying to solve it on hi...

    Respect to Darren O'Sullivan in giving a voice to a child as well as adults to reveal his plot. I found the second half of the book more compelling than the first. Overall interesting premise with twists- the most dramatic and surprising being near the end. ...

    I got off to a slow start and I wasn't sure I would follow it as well as I should but oh my it really started motoring and got better and better I found myself biting my nails. The format was perfect I had absolutely no idea what was next for any of the characters and the twist caught ...

    This isn't an easy read. Overall it's engaging enough, though really slow at the beginning and completely unnecessarily so, BUT I would never compare it to Gillian Flynn or BA Paris. This reads so much more like a commercial gang/mafia chase. And even at that, the "bad guys"...
