Lost in Me (Here and Now #1) by Lexi Ryan

Lost in Me
by Lexi Ryan 

Kindle Edition, 216 pages
Published April 6th 2014 by Ever After, LLC (first published April 5th 2014)

Goodreads synopsis:
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.


4.5 Stars

This is the first book in the Here and Now series. Technically, this series is one over-reaching story. I wish they wouldn’t cut them up like that. But it seems to be a popular thing to do on Amazon right now especially with the more sexy books. This concept would have been worth forking out more dough to get the entire thing. I would have bought that in a second.

Basically a girl falls and hits her head and when she awakens it is a year later. She has the perfect body she has always wanted, started the perfect business and has not one but TWO hot guys wanting to do amazing things with her body. What’s a girl to do? But she can’t remember the previous year. How had she become engaged with Max? Who was the mysterious rocker Nate? And what will happen when her two worlds start crashing together? Will her memory get in her way or lead her to the life of her dreams?

Like I said, I like this concept. I was hooked from the first page. But this story, Lost in Me, is only the first part. I will have to buy the other sections of this to figure out how it all ends but I a willing to do that since I am so intrigued. This leaves you on a pretty big cliffhanger and if you are anything like me, you will need to know more too.

Yes, this is a sexy book but it is not trash like some people tend to think. There is a real story here. Lexi Ryan writes a nice story. It follows all the story structure rules, It pushes the suspense and gives you the angst to boot not to mention the romance but that is a given with a book like this. I wonder if Hannah’s twin sister will get a spin off series to  go along with this one. Don’t make any assumptions about the guys in the book. The closer you get to the end the more you realize you don’t know anything at all.

If you like a sexy romance with a real plot, you will love this.

I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
