What do you do when you wake up with no memory of what you did last night?

Lucas spent the first half of his life protecting himself from others, but now his own mind is his biggest enemy. He doesn't know what happens when the blackouts overtake him, but he can recall the feelings--the rage, the confusion, the fear. Thankfully the quiet life he's found in Payson, Arizona has kept the darkness at bay. Until his boss's estranged daughter shows up in town, asking questions she shouldn't and sparking a desire Lucas can't control. Getting close to Shyann is the best thing that's ever happened to him, but when his blackouts return, unleashing the truth he's battled so long to hide, he may just lose her forever . . .

Split was the first book I read by JB Salsbury. I think that's a good place to start my review considering the fact that when I start a book by a new author, I get nervous. Am I going to like their writing style? Their characters? The plot? Can I relate to the characters? Does it make me feel something? Really, truly and deep down to my core feel something? And answering these questions became easy after I turned the final page: Yes. Yes to everything. I loved her writing style so much, the first page- I repeat- the very first page was an amazing hook. She knew how to get the readers attention and keep them interested.
Not only was Split full of electricity between the two main characters but it also really involved Shyann's family which is something that I really enjoyed. The heroine had lost a family member to due Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) & that hit so close to home for me. It made me really connect to Shyann and understand the way that she felt not only being around her hometown but being around people she knew before she left Payson. There was a lot that needed to be fixed when it came to the characters relationships with each other but I loved seeing the progress of it all as I read.
Split was absolutely brilliant. It was unique, it was suspenseful and it was exactly what dark romance lovers need. It managed to keep me on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat while butterflies roamed around my stomach. It was an incredible journey and it's just one of those books you can keep going back to and never loving it less. Bravo.
