MUSCLE MEMORY by stylo Fantome: Review + Release Blitz

Muscle MemoryMuscle Memory by Stylo Fantome
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"Keep running. Look for her. Remember her. Find her."

Stylo Fantome doesn’t cease to amaze me as each new release has a different feel, a different approach.

Muscle Memory isn't dark per se but the characters go through really dark moments. What it is, though is raw.

Stylo's writing is excellent, alternating present and past gives a rythm that kept me captivated all along .
The way she handled Jon's amnesia is beautiful and felt really realistic. That's maybe why it made me a tad uncomfortable: I could totally feel Jay/Jon and Del's feelings and emotions.

Although they were happy and in love, their relationship was toxic, neither of them helping the other to break their spiralling to hell. So, of course, when they finally hit rock bottom, it hurt. Real. Bad. Reading about them at that moment of their lives was heart-wrenching. It poses the question of what do you want in life, how do see yourself in the future. Jay and Del were young, reckless and carefree. They loved hard but lived without thinking about the consequences of their actions, with no care for what tomorrow would bring, except for the little money they need in order to have fun.

The characters were lovable in their imperfections. I couldn't help but feel for them all, whether it is for Jay, Del, or Kitty. Life isn't perfect, people aren't perfect but the way those characters move on in spite of whatever life threw at them is really inspiring.
“Do you know what that feels like? To not be a real person? To not be whole?”“Yes, Jon. Yes, I know what it feels like to not be whole.”

Muscle Memory is a phenomenal second chance novel; the concept of a love your head can't maybe not remember but that is engraved in your body and soul, is so poetic, in a story that is so tragic!
"Two strangers faced one another, missing each other already."

Her lips, the way she feels, how she moves against me. Her voice when she laughs, her eyes when she cries. Her soul connected to mine, for better or for worse, for all eternity.

I don't remember.

A blank face. Unrecognizable. The darkness and impenetrable fog, day after day after day. Who am I? And for that matter, who is she?

I can't remember.

Two sides to the same coin – one wants to remember, and the other wants to stay forgotten. Which side will win? Can he trust his heart to bring him back to her? Or will she stay lost in the fog forever?

I might never remember.

Author Bio

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
