Blackout by Chris Myers Review


Some memories should be buried…

The blackouts started happening when I was eight. There are long periods of my youth I don’t remember. I’ve woken up in strange places, feeling disoriented and unaware of how long I’ve been out.

After two years abroad attending a private school and sessions with a top-notch psychiatrist, I’ve been deemed cured. The blackouts have ceased, or so I thought, until I wake up in a ditch back home in North Carolina. Dare, the guy pulling my broken body from the wreckage, has a restraining order against him. He’s no longer the clean-cut boy I went frog gigging with but road-hardened. His lean, muscular arms, riddled with tats, drag me out of the SUV. I should fear him, but instead, his touch sparks memories that tell me I once worshipped him with all my heart.


I rated Blackout with 4 LEAVES!

Blackout is a lot different than most books that I’m used to reading. I consider this book a Psychological Thriller. Blackout keeps you on the edge of your seat as you are reading and just when you think you have the whole storyline figured out, you are thrown through a loop. The writing is excellent and the pace is perfect.
Teal Covington has been living overseas for the past few years and is now returning to her hometown. When Teal was a child, she experience a life altering attack that left her with brain damage and little to no memory of what happened. Teal’s childhood friend, Dare, found her the day she was attacked and because of being in the wrong place at the wrong time is accused of attacking her.
The brain damage that Teal experienced leaves her with blackouts that can happen when she is around a trigger of the accident. This is why coming back to her hometown where the accident occurred is hard for her. When she starts to have her blackout incidents again, Dare seems to always be there for her.
Teal and Dare both know that it is dangerous for them to be around each other but yet it is like they are magnetized. Teal wants to get down to the bottom of what really happened many years ago so she can finally have peace of mind and hopefully get rid of her blackouts. While doing this, she is thrown curve balls from every direction that get both her and the people around her in trouble.
I absolutely loved reading this thriller from Chris Meyers. It was the first of Meyer’s books I’ve read but I’m 100% positive that I will be adding all of her books to my TBR list and you should too!


Chris Myers suffers from an overactive imagination. She spent her high school years writing torch songs for fantasy guys then moved onto writing thrillers, new adult, and young adult. She has a real job but would love to write full time. Her books have won and placed in the finals and semifinals for several awards including Paul Gillette, Rocky Mountain Gold, and Amazon Breakthrough Novel. Chris lives in Colorado with her daughter, her better half, and BeBe, a rambunctious Bichon.
