Release Day Blast: Review + #Giveaway: Lost in Me by Lexi Ryan

Get ready for NYT Bestselling Author Lexi Ryan’s new series Here and Now! The first novel in the series, LOST IN ME, is a sexy New Adult contemporary romance released April 7th!


LOST IN ME is on SALE for just .99 cents the first week of release as a fan appreciation from the author!

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.

I am convinced that Lexi Ryan loves torturing her readers, as much as she loves torturing her characters, if not more. Every one of her books has turned me into an emotional wreck, and this one was no different.
A whirlwind of ups and downs, twists and turns, it was brilliant from start to finish. The ending… don’t even get me started!! It was almost the death of me. Seriously! I kinda knew what was coming but when it did, it hit like a freight train, and then those two evil words “THE END” popped up and I wanted to tear my hair out. I am in such desperate need for the second book.
I loved Ryan’s New Hope Series, so it was exciting to start a new series that took place in the same town and included the same characters, as well as introducing a few new ones. Unfortunately, the despicable Meredith was also back to wreak even more havoc.
I loved the uniqueness of how this story unfolded, with poor Hanna having no clue of what went down the last few months of her life. It was obvious something was amiss after her so called perfect life with Max took a nose dive when Nate pitched up, and the intrigue grew the more Hanna tried to figure out what was going on. Ryan gave her readers just enough information to allow them to piece together and contrive their own ideas of what was going on, while throwing curveballs and leading them in a different direction with every flip of the page.
Other than the love triangle, smoking hot passion, and mystery of Hanna’s life, I really enjoyed the female camaraderie between Hanna, her sisters, Cally, Nix, and even Drew. The best thing was that Hanna and Lizzy finally found their way back to each other. That really warmed my heart. And then, of course, there was the hilarious tapered candle incident. OMG! I cried with laughter. I can only imagine the mortification that Hanna felt, but her girls laughed it off, showing just how amazing they all were.
As I’ve already mentioned, the ending will have you going out of your mind, but it also left me with so many questions. I cannot wait for book 2 because I need the answers. I need to find out if Hanna will get her happy ending once and for all, and with the right man.

Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I’m not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids–a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children. When I’m feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I’m really, really slow) or do yoga. Don’t worry, I’m always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.
