Review of Here by Ella James

Milo Mitchell's life used to be charmed, but that was before her family dissolved, she went a little crazy, and her best friends started acting more like strangers. Spending Saturday morning in a treehouse with a stun gun for company and a herd of deer for friends is the only exciting thing in her life...until she shoots a fawn and finds her dart stuck in a guy.

Her gorgeous victim is dressed in a Brioni tux and armed with a hanky. He has no idea who or where he is. Afraid her dart caused his amnesia, Milo takes him in, names him Nick, and vows to help him solve his mystery. Soon the pair find Nick's face in a newspaper obituary, and Nick begins to have strange, ethereal memories of Milo--who is sure she's never met him. Suddenly Nick knows things he shouldn't know and is doing things he shouldn't do. When the Department of Defense shows up, Nick and Milo run--toward a shocking conclusion that could destroy both their worlds.

The story is about Milo, a girl still grieving the death of her father three years before.  She is out in the woods trying to tag a mule deer, and finds that she has instead shot an gorgeous amnesiac in a fancy tux. As they are trying to figure out who he his, Milo finds herself attracted to him and desperate to help him solve the mystery behind his peculiar abilities. 

The character of Milo is really likeable.
The story is fast paced and exciting.
The relationship between Milo and Nick is sweet, but still has some romantic tension. 
I really enjoyed reading it, and the whole mystery of Nick/Gabe is what kept me turning the pages.
The plot has some holes and there were a few things that I would have liked some more explanation about, such as the Nick's inability to feel emotions, yet he is overcome by his attraction to Milo, and his miraculous ability to heal people.  
The Department of Defense characters were a little bit over the top and unbelievable.  
I wish that the transition between Milo and Nick's voices was a little bit clearer. 
Review by none other than my Aunt Tina who is awesome. Thank you Tina for helping me out, you are the best:)
