Indigo wants to “forget about the mess of her life. Say ‘F**k you’ to all the broken promises...” but nothing’s ever so simple. Fate has offered her a glowing future, but the past holds her back in unexpected ways, and new entanglements seem just to add their weight to the old.
The protagonists are convincing and flawed. A cheating college professor gives way to Jude, the accidentally cheating young student, while watched by a cheating cop. As the story switches between Jude’s and Indigo’s viewpoints, unsettling truths begin to come together. An honest man, beset by twisted loyalties; an honest women, recovering from a broken past... while one trusts too easily and the other refuses to recognize trust, perhaps they might turn out to be made for each. Or else they’re made to delete it all and cause each other’s downfall.
The computer jargon is kept short and easy to read and understand. It gives a pleasing depth to the story, matching the depth of the characters’ emotions. And the title serves as an apt reminder that doing is remarkably easier than pressing the undo key. Not for younger readers, this is a truly enjoyable new adult tale offering wise lessons in a dark world.
