Lost In Me Review

Lost in Me - Here and Now #1

What they say: 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.

What I say: Lost in Me is an interesting one because it manages to be a combination of most girls dreams and nightmares. By this I mean it begins with Hanna waking up after an accident, suddenly finding herself engaged to the man of her dreams, having lost a whole load of weight and with a successful business. She also seems to have gorgeous and successful rocker Nate, after her. The downside is she has no recollection of how any of this came about and does't know what happened to her or where her heart lies.

I'm often really critical of love triangles but I actually found the one between Hanna, Max and Nate really intriguing. I definitely had my favourite but thought both guys could do with a talking to at times. When will people learn half-truths or lies by omissions are still lies?!

I wasn't expecting to, but I found Hanna really likeable and wasn't entirely convinced by her twin sister (who I thought had a sneaky side). I kept changing my mind over who I trusted and who I didn't. It seemed the more the story developed, the less I actually trusted certain characters. 

THAT ending! I'm not sure where Lexi Ryan can take the story after the many revelations we get towards the end of the book. Max has a LOT of problems to overcome if he's going to win Hanna (and the reader over). But Nate wasn't exactly a shining example of the good guy and somebody has definitely been lying to Hanna (this makes sense when you read the book). Be warned there is a big cliffy and the story ends rather quickly, but I defo need to know what happens next!!

4 Stars in my Sky!
