Genre: Contemporary Romance
Five years ago an unthinkable tragedy slashed Cait London’s life into two parts: before she had amnesia and after.
Determined to keep her past hidden and start over, she moves to Chicago and plunges into a new job—all while keeping a walled distance from everyone she meets. But it’s not long before Cait reconsiders her solitary existence, and soon she’s stepping beyond her boundaries and taking unthinkable chances, like crushing on her impossibly sexy landlord, Evan Wade. He’s flirty, annoying, and with him living in the same apartment building, she can’t stop thinking about him. If she can sleep with him once, perhaps she can get him out of her system. The problem is, Evan seems bulletproof to her advances. As the two develop a connection, it becomes clear Cait may not succeed before her heart remembers what it feels like to love.
Ten Thousand Points of Light is an immersive contemporary romance about the intensity of first loves, the heartache of loss, and the power of forgiveness.

Cait London has started over. Five years ago after a tragedy her life has been divided into two parts: Before amnesia and after. She’s excelling at her new job even though she has been keeping to herself. Suddenly, she starts taking chances. Cait decides to flirt with her sexy landlord, Evan Wade, who seems to run hot and cold. A client tries to persuade her to start something romantically. And for some odd reason, she starts getting glimpses of the incident that changed her life forever.
“I know it won’t happen overnight, but it’s a spark of a flame I want to burn so bright no darkness from before remains. Even though it shouldn’t, this search for newness heightens my interest in Evan. I experience the most when I’m with him, positive or negative. And I confess, I want more of it.”
This emotional story made me feel so many things. It was just so beautifully told and made me feel like I was inside Cait’s shoes. Scared of remembering. Scared of not remembering. And so, so confused. I got butterflies when she decided to take a chance on loving again. Or perhaps for the first time in her mind. Cait truly is incredibly brave. It’s so scary to trust people with your secrets and overcoming the loss of memory. I can’t imagine the fear of panic attacks and not knowing what might set them off. And Evan! OMG…what a perfect man to take a chance on. To make that leap. I cried when I read his story as well. What a remarkable, twisted story. I just really fell in love with how everything developed and where it all ended up.
This was my first book by Michelle Warren and I know I will be reading many more books by this author. I loved her writing style and can’t wait to see what I find next to read from her.
