Review of Lost in Me (Here & Now series, #1) by Lexi Ryan

lost in me lexi ryan

 

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.

Wow! Lexi Ryan knows how to serve you hodgepodge of emotions. When I read the line “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.”  I knew I was in for wild ride! In the beginning I loved Max, yet by the end I despised him! And you will see why…not giving a spoiler…hehe To be torn between Max and the bad boy persona of Nate… Decisions, decisions…lol Not only did Nate add more depth to the story, but his appearances and interactions with Hanna were incredible. At times, I just wanted to shake Hanna and say ‘Snap out of it! Look at what is there right in front of you.’ Also, I’d tell her to just bite the bullet and go with Nate already.  Then I realized that being with Max wasn’t the deterrent, there was something else… Max played the doting fiancé almost toowell, while Nate played the vulnerable other man to the tee perfectly. I honestly felt for him right from the very beginning…

 

 

 

The people I couldn’t help but feel sorry for were all of Hannah’s friends. They could only stand by and watch her after an accident and head injury, just try to put the pieces of her shattered life back together.  It was strange to feel how helpless Hannah felt, when a small part of her life was the crucial turning point of her life. Many of her insecurities vanished in an instant, only to creep back in down the road. An unfortunate turn of events, but poignant. I loved the cameos appearances of the minor characters of Maggie, Asher, Meredith, Cally and William and how they all played important key roles in this book.

 

 

Lexi Ryan institutes one of the most absolutely brilliant and shocking endings I have read in a long time. One could say it was evil…lol I must say you will definitely be enthused with this story and the outstanding writing style of Lexi Ryan. I highly recommend ‘Lost in Me’…you will not regret getting this book! Also, counting the days until the next book…

 

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