Book LOVE DELETED by Paul Indigo


My Review:


The story revolves around Cooper, a woman whose world crumbles when she unexpectedly stumbles upon a shocking revelation. Faced with unbearable pain, she embarks on a reckless journey to erase the memories that haunt her. The narrative takes a fascinating turn when Cooper discovers a website promising a mind-blowing solution—surgically deleting her love for her husband, Jethro.

At first glance, one might expect a typical romantic thriller, but "Love Deleted" surprises readers by delving into the realm of cutting-edge medical technology and the ethical dilemmas surrounding memory manipulation. The novel is not just about love but explores the consequences of meddling with one's most intimate and cherished memories.

Indigo skillfully crafts a narrative that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. The pacing is relentless, with each chapter unraveling new layers of the intricate plot. The author masterfully blends suspense with emotional depth, making it a compelling read for both thriller enthusiasts and those who appreciate a well-developed, character-driven story.

The characters in "Love Deleted" are not merely pawns in a technological chess game; they are individuals with relatable struggles and vulnerabilities. Cooper's journey is both heart-wrenching and thought-provoking, as she grapples with the consequences of her decisions on not only her own life but also that of her husband and teenage son.

One of the novel's strengths lies in its exploration of the ethical and moral implications of memory alteration. The author doesn't shy away from addressing the darker aspects of this seemingly utopian technology, forcing readers to confront uncomfortable questions about the essence of love and the fragility of the human psyche.

What makes "Love Deleted" all the more intriguing is its real-world inspiration from cutting-edge medical technology. Indigo seamlessly weaves this futuristic concept into the fabric of the story, making the narrative both plausible and unsettling. This added layer of authenticity elevates the novel from a mere work of fiction to a thought-provoking exploration of the intersection between science and the human condition.

In conclusion, "Love Deleted" is a must-read for anyone seeking a thrilling and emotionally charged journey through uncharted territories of love and memory. Paul Indigo's ability to blend a compelling narrative with a chilling technological concept makes this novel a standout in the genre. Whether you're a fan of mind-bending thrillers or thought-provoking speculative fiction, "Love Deleted" is a book that will leave a lasting impression and linger in your thoughts long after you've turned the final page. This book is perfect for fans of Netflix's Black Mirror and The Silent Patient.

About the book:


This is an impossible love story…

Cooper came home unexpectedly early that day. The day her world collapsed. The day she heard things she shouldn’t have. Saw things she shouldn’t have.

Now Cooper is running away. Driving recklessly. Blindly. A broken heart spiralling out of control after witnessing an earth-shattering scene.

Then Cooper discovers the website. Speaks to the doctors. Can they help her? Can they give her the treatment she desperately wants? Yes they can. They can do something mind-blowing.

They can surgically erase her love for her husband Jethro.

Only what appears to be the perfect solution sets off a devastating chain of events not only for Jethro and herself. But one also involving their teenage son Daniel in ways she can’t imagine.

A life-shattering moment. A rash decision. An easy solution. This isn’t just a love story. Not when a heart isn’t just broken, it is irreversibly silenced.

This is an impossible love story.

*Amazingly, this novel was inspired by the latest in genuine, cutting-edge medical technology.

About the author:

I'm a British author who loves page-turners. It doesn't have to be a thriller. It can be anything, I just want to feel that desperate urge to turn the page. And if it grabs me on the first page...

or the first paragraph...

or the first sentence...

Well! All the better.

I worked in the television industry for many years. However, though I’ve worked with words all my life, I’ve only recently decided to do something with it. My aim is to try to produce - if I'm very lucky - my own version of what I consider a page-turner - whatever the subject matter.

I love interesting tidbits...

Did you know babies are born bacteria-free?

Or that Russia is so wide, on the east coast they'll be going to bed while on the west coast, they'll be waking up?

Or that the Audrey Hepburn film My Fair Lady is a cockney pronunciation of Mayfair Lady?

I find such facts fascinating!

I share little facts I've discovered in every Paul Indigo Readers' Club newsletter where you'll learn about my latest project (or struggles with it!) as well as any freebies or exclusive extracts... You're welcome to join us!

I live on the English coast and love sea and nature reserve walks whenever I get the opportunity (at least once a week, sometimes more). I also love to wake early, long before the rest of the world has caught up with me.
