Release Event and eARC REVIEW...Lost in Me (Here and Now #1) 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!

Title:  Lost in Me (Here and Now #1)  
Author:  Lexi Ryan
Publication Date: April 7th 2014
Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:   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 honestly did not know what to expect when starting this read. But, I have to say that I really liked it.

Lost in Me kept me on my feet with the suspense and putting all of the puzzle pieces together. In here, Hanna, our female protagonist, finds herself waking up in a hospital only without memory of the last past year.

Not to mention, she is apparently about to be engaged to life long crush, Max. Sounds like a dream come true, right? Not.

As Hanna begins to re-immerse herself with her family and friends, she notices their strange behavior towards her.

She then sets off on a quest to regain what was lost and is shocked with new secrets, events, ad revelations that could be her undoing.

Only, with a sexy as sin rock star. Nate, who wants Hanna for himself and may hold the answers that Hanna is looking for...

My thoughts: I loved this book! It was so different from what I expected and kept me guessing from start to finish!!

I do have to admit that I have a fetish or should I say weakness for tattooed and rock stars so automatically my vote was for Nate before even beginning. To me, in the great scheme of things, Nate is the best choice for Hanna where as Max was kind of a weak and not strong enough to uphold the burden of Hanna.

I do not dig weak characters who have no presence so even more kudos for Nate over Max.

Therefore, NATE FOR THE WIN! Well, at least I hope!! The ending of this book killed me and left me reeling for more!! Can't wait for June to get my hands on book two!!

About the Author:

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.
