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' 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.

Loved this book.
I wish there were more books like this.
The main male character was fascinating. I loved that he had more than one personality; an innocent, slightlt shy, damaged man who had a darker side that he had no control over , and no memory of whatever was done when that part took over. When the darker side came, the protector, I never knew what to expect. It was exciting and made me want to know more about both Lucas and Gage.
As for the female lead; she was strong, determined and caring. I liked that she wasn't a typical pushover.
Both characters (three including Gage) had felt loss and ran from their pasts. But they have no choice but to face it when they realise it's the thing standing in the way of their happiness. Gage doesn't make it easy for Lucas and Shy to grow close . He's sometimes cruel with his words to Shy, even agressive, but Shy faces him head-on even though he scares her.
All in all, this book was a great, entertaining read.
Both narrators were good and made the story more enjoyable with their emtions.
A recommended read, for sure.

Beautiful and Complex
Great story, fantastic that the author broached a personality disorder. Cleverly written and well narrated.
The voice difference between Luke and Gage was so subtle yet distinct you knew exactly when Gage appeared. Fantastic story, this is the only one of JB Salsbury books I have listened to so far and I am excited to hear more.

The perfect break from typical romance novels that I needed
It feels like my brain is on autopilot 90% of the time while listening to typical romance novels. Poor girl meets rich guy, dramatic misunderstanding, then their HEA. I was delighted when I stumbled across Split! I recently listened to J.F. Harding in another audio book and loved him, so searched some of his other work. That led me to Split. Yay! While I could predict what was coming throughout the whole story it didn't stop me from being captivated the entire time. The author did an exceptional job at making you feel strong emotions toward each character, whether good or bad, and I enjoy that in a book. Granted my feelings toward each character changed at least twice :) but that's what keeps you want to keep listening! The beginning was a tad slow, but by the end I couldn't put it down! It wasn't quite as twisted or mysterious as I thought it would be, it actually turned out a lot different than I expected, but I still loved it and would recommend it. Especially if you're ready for a break from the usual. And like I said J.F. Harding is great. It's not the first time I've fallen for a mentally unstable character :)

This was one I purchased during the 70% off sale in the last couple weeks. I like the authors work and was glad to have found a couple at a discounted rate. My biggest concern with this book isn’t that the author rushed the novel or has lost creativity, but the summary did not disclose I would be reading a novel with graphic detail of child abuse and child murder. This is a topic I am very sensitive to and do not enjoy reading about. I finished the novel so I could write a fully informed review, but I must say, PLEASE, if you have trauma or triggers related to mental, physical or verbal child abuse, SKIP THIS BOOK. I’m talking about a boy being forced to eat his mother’s feces from the toilet after starvation, forced to eat rotten food and then the vomit after food poisoning and siblings being forced to watch their mom shoot them in the face one at a time while the others hyperventilated as they awaited their turn to die. It was too much and for that reason, no, I didn’t like this book, and despite the authors ability as a writer, I cannot give it a good review.
