Just The Way I Am by Jo Watson. #BlogTour

Has Fate given her a second chance?

‘Zoe’ is having a very bad day. As if getting trapped in a faulty elevator wasn’t bad enough, losing her memory has made it much worse. If there’s one piece of luck, it’s that the paramedic on the scene, Noah, is both kind and a handsome distraction…

Now a completely blank canvas, with the help of Noah, ‘Zoe’ is excited to fill her world with colour, creativity and sweet and spicy food. She just knows from the tips of her toes, right to her fleek brows, that these things were all part of her make-up.

But when her identity is traced, the life ‘Zoe’ was living before the accident bears no resemblance to that of the person she’s convinced she is. What happened to make her world so narrow and colourless?

And now she has the chance to start over, is it time to let the real Zoe out?

It all started with a faulty elevator – don’t miss Becca story in You, Me, Forever and Frankie’s in Truly, Madly, Like Me!

My Thoughts


Jo Watson has been a favourite author of mine for quite some time now, so I had been eagerly anticipating this latest novel.

In this story we meet Zoe, a woman who has been involved in an elevator accident which has left her with memory loss. Although she can’t actually remember her name, she can recall many random facts and can even speak in a language she wasn’t aware she could. Now Zoe has the difficult journey of discovering who she is all over again.

Whilst trying to regain some of her memory, Zoe finds herself being drawn to certain situations for reasons she can’t actually explain. One of the people she finds herself drawn to the most is Noah – the paramedic who was on duty during her accident. Noah makes her feel safe, and that is something she needs now more than ever.

When Zoe finally discovers who she was prior to the accident, she is somewhat shocked by this revelation. The reality of who she is, is far different to the person she had imagined herself to be, and as we come to learn more about this – it is safe to say it is rather emotional!.

This story is enchanting from the start. Zoe is such a likeable character, and you really feel your heart braking for her and her situation. Noah is a truly endearing character within this book. He has a heart of gold, and when a woman he has only met once whilst working appears on his doorstep, he doesn’t hesitate in helping her. He is kind, considerate, and genuinely a nice guy who you really do feel connected to throughout this beautiful story.

Emotional, heart warming and full of charm, this is such a gorgeous story that I didn’t want to end!.
