Annika Rose has always known she’s different from everyone else. She doesn’t mind the solidarity she encounters every day. For her, being alone is nothing to worry about. Until the moment she comes across Jonathan once again. From the moment she met him, he became the love of her life, though she’ll never openly admit that fact to him. Throughout the lives they’ve lived, they’ve had their ups and down. When love is meant to be, however, a person will do anything to keep it close and give their heart to the one who deserves it the most no matter what comes their way.

When I first started reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect it. At first glance, I’d assumed the book was some sort of thriller. How wrong I was!

The Girl He Used To Know is one of those stories that gets under your skin. It pushes boundaries while showing you the lives each character lives as the story progresses. A sweet romance, we’re presented with two characters whose lives span a decade or so. These are two people who loved and lost. Two souls who are given the chance to find their way again while making sense of the past that exists between them.

I found it hard to put this book down. Tracey’s ease of storytelling makes it so that you want to keep turning that page. You find yourself wanting to know what happens next. By the time you get to the end, the characters endear themselves to you. They’ve gone through so much, but they’ve endured the pain and heartache they’ve experienced throughout the years. Can’t wait to read more of Tracey’s book. Her writing is that good!


Annika Rose likes being alone.

She feels lost in social situations, saying the wrong thing or acting the wrong way – she just can’t read people. She prefers the quiet solitude of books or playing chess to being around others.

Apart from Jonathan. She liked being around him, but she hasn’t seen him for ten years. Until now that is. And she’s not sure he’ll want to see her again after what happened all those years ago.

Annika Rose likes being alone.

Except that, actually, she doesn’t like being alone at all.
