Lost in Me – Review

Lost in Me

Lost in Me

What it’s all about

Lost in Me is the first book in the Here and Now series, a spin-off of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Hope series. This sexy amnesia love triangle is intended for mature readers.

The last thing I remember is having drinks at Brady’s and trying to avoid eye-contact with my life-long crush—the gorgeous, unattainable Maximilian Hallowell. They tell me that was a year ago, but I have no memories of anything since then. What I do have is this ring on my finger that Max says he gave me, and this much-thinner body I’ve dreamed of most of my life. Aside from a case of retrograde amnesia, everything seems almost…perfect.

But the deeper I immerse myself into this new world of mine—planning a wedding to a man I don’t remember dating, attempting to run a business I don’t remember starting—the clearer it becomes that nothing is as it seems. Do I have the life I’ve always wanted or is it a facade propped up by secrets I don’t even know I have?

I need answers before I marry Max, and the only person who seems to have them is the angry, tatted, sexy-as-sin rocker Nate Crane. And Nate wants me for himself.

Lost in Me is not a standalone novel, as the story continues in Here and Now book two, Fall to You, releasing in June.

WHat I thought

Well now what did I think?

I read Lost in Me about a month ago now. I had of course heard of Lexi Ryan, in fact we followed each other on twitter and had quite often tweeted back and forth. We had actually tweeted – about my clumsiness and lack of grace – just before I read her book. It wasn’t until I had read the book and went lookoking for her on twitter to tell her how bloody amazing it was that I realised and put the two together!

My sister in law had asked me what to read soon after I finished. I asked her what she was looking for. She said “I don’t know. I want something different. All the books are really good but its the same sh*t every time.” Only she still wanted all that stuff too.

My response? “Lost in Me by Lexi Ryan.” It has everything I always look for. Packed with drama, angst, strong characters – you know the one you are rooting for and then the one you hope gets run over by a bus type of thing. I’m sure i’m missing something. Oh Yes. Sex. There is definitely sex. The best thing about this book though is that it is different.

Hanna has always wanted one thing. Max. She wakes up after an accident with memory loss to find not only does she have Max but she has the body she always dreamed of having. She goes back into her life – not having all the pieces of the jigsaw but still somewhat content and hopeful that all the pieces fall into place. And hopefully before her wedding.

Though when the pieces start falling into place they just don’t seem to fit as they should. She wakes up with another man in her bed. After almost freaking out she realises he poses no danger. Her heart knows this man even if her head doesn’t.

Then she gets the shock of her life!!

Nothing is as it seems to be. Or is it? I do love a bit of mind fuckery!

OK I know that’s all pretty vague. I am telling you no more. This is a book that I insist that you read. It is very well written. brilliantly thought out and definitely has your imagination working over time. Or maybe that’s just me, I am always reading between the lines trying to work out what is going on and whats going to happen next. I absolutely can’t wait until next month so I can get the next installment of this. It’s going to be fantastic! You know what they say – “careful what you wish for, you might just get it!”
