Publisher's Summary

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.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "UNPREDICTABLE, UNBELIEVABLE & V. ENJOYABLE"

    This would definitely be a classic X Files case for Mulder and Scully..... Asia had lost three hours of her life that ended up having a devastating and heartbreaking effect on her life and her sanity but, years later, she would find answers, friends, a family..... and love. But it would all come at a high price.

    Three years later Asia was sent to a Psychiatrist specializing in treating people that were delusional and thought they'd been abducted by Aliens but Asia had never claimed that nor did she know of his 'speciality'..... she just wanted peace of mind and to be rid of her haunting weird dreams. As soon as she walked into Ethan Robert's cosy room she felt safer, calmer and, when she looked into the handsome Dr.'s face, she was also captivated too. The road they find themselves travelling down will bring emotional and wild revelations, suspense, betrayal, death, terror, twists, heartache, love..... and some unbelievable answers... (think the X Files theme here).

    Ethan's also got his share of heartbreaking skeletons in his closet too and he's still living with the painful injuries from it but when the beautiful haunted Asia walked into his Office it stirred up feelings and desires long dead. However, Doctor-Patient relationships were taboo so Ethan concentrated on her mind and not her body - but the more he delved and unravelled Asia's memories - the more of her unbelievable story surfaced. And the deeper they journeyed together to find answers - the harder they both fell.

    I won't go further about the storyline - it's your's to discover. However, I will say that although there was instant attraction, it wasn't instant lust and sex, there was a slow and nicely paced growth of feelings and trust that did eventually lead to some stolen blissful sexy times. Their romance was gradual like the storyline which slowly unfurled revealing clues, possibilities and nuggets of information that would eventually all fall into place. Dual POV's and, even though the narrator was good, on my download every time the narrator spoke there was a background hiss/static which went off and on continually but, because I too wanted answers, I pressed on..... and even got used to it.

    Worth a credit? There was a good balance between story and romance, it was (despite the hiss) an enjoyable listen and yes, if you like Sci-Fi stories, then I'm sure you too will find this creditworthy.

    A crazy mix of romance and sci-fi. I got really into this book. The narration was on point and I couldn't stop listening.

    "Great Listen!"
    What did you love best about Unchained Memory?

    Captivating plot and delivery by narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Asia, because I could relate to her on many levels.


    What about Lisa Beacom’s performance did you like?

    Her intonation was good and the voices for the characters were distinguishable and authentic. She used tone to emphasize important sections of the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Asia was going to leave with Claussen in order to save Ethan's career.

    "A Dark Action Book."
    Any additional comments?

    It was very slow and gave a dark feeling throughout. The narrator was very mono tone and there was a weird noise every time she would speak but otherwise did a great job. I just couldn’t get into it… It did have very engaging parts and the author did a great job. This just might not have been my cup of tea what happened to Asia in the beginning of the book just really hit me hard and I could not get over what happened to her babies so for the rest of the book I was sad and the book played into that despair.

    Some books may be better written and genres differ. So I rate on how mush I enjoyed a book, I am not a book critic.

    Story
    "Slow story, read slow"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I hoped for action, fantasy, sci-fi. I got a slow paced drama, read slow, with 1% action, 2% sci-fi, 75% melancholy drama and 22% R18 .


    What could Donna S. Frelick have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This is a slow drama sold as an action, By the time the action starts I was so board, I did not care what happen to them.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I listened to this on 2x speed and still it was to slow.


    What character would you cut from Unchained Memory?

    None of them show any interesting or deep personality, except maybe for Rita, who shows some individuality.


    Any additional comments?

    Not my cup of tea. If you are looking for a slow drawn out, erotic drama with a small bit of sci-fi action, this is for you. "This audio book was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review."

    "I really liked it"

    the story was an emotional, sweet and thrilling listen. there was some static in one of the chapters but it was easily ignored. the narrator did an excellent job. if u like sci-fi and the X-Files u will like this book.

    "Interesting book"

    This book started out a little slow and slightly confusing. Around the midpoint the action picked up as all the pieces started falling into place. There were also a couple of steamy sex scenes thrown in to spice up the story. Be prepared for a new take on alien abductions. The narration was excellent, if a bit heavy on the southern accents.
