4 Stars... I think???

This was not an easy book for me to rate. Its difficult when you loved a part of a book, and another part frustrated you to no end. Thats how I felt about this one.

Ryan Stone is not your average teenager. He is seventeen, getting ready to start his senior year of highschool. His parents are uber strict. He doesn’t have a car, doesn’t get to watch tv, listen to music... you could say he is pretty sheltered. The only real friend he has is Dylan. She has been his best

I have deleted and restarted this review at least 3 times now because I'm just not sure how to put in to words how I felt. What I do know though is that I was disappointed. Really, really disappointed.

As we can see from the blurb, we know that the two main characters are worlds apart from each other. For me, in the beginning, it was a really nice change to have the roles reversed. I liked that the female lead was the one who was the celebrity instead of the guy, I also liked that Ryan was so

Where to start? I had to sleep on this book just to decide which way my rating would go. (I’m still trying to decide as I write this) It’s tough when you love the beginning 60% of a book but then have some problems with the last 40%. It makes it difficult to decide where your rating should fall.

This is not your typical star-crossed lovers romance. It is about much more than a love story. This book is about growing up, falling in love, making wrong choices, dealing with consequences and finding

"When he looked at me, my heart began racing so fast I thought I was going to pass out. The rush I'm feeling right now is like no other. I've never been one to believe in love at first sight. Can it exist after one simple look?"

Hadley Carter is America's Pop Princess.
Ryan Stone is Brookefield's nobody.
As cliché as it may sound - when they met sparks fly and they begin to get lost in each other.

How fun do you think it would be if meeting rock stars or famous artists and getting them to fall

“I’m sorry,” he whispers.
I’m not. I’m so not sorry that he just kissed me and hate that he is.
“I just had to know.”
“Know what?”
“If you’re the one.”

The first 50% of the book needed to be cut down to 25% and the latter 50% was perfect!! :D
The first half of the book had a fucked up pace, tooooo slow but the second half made up for it.

It was a nice changing reading about a poor guy and not a tortured billionaire. :P

I enjoyed their story, the not expected twisted and turns we see in the second

I should not have read this book. Actually, I want to erase it from my mind. The beginning was completely unbelievable. I can understand instant attraction, but these two declared their devotion to each other so quickly that it was uncomfortable. On top of that, the inequality in their life differences made everything very awkward. I think I could have gotten into their relationship more if I had believed strongly in their connection. But when Ryan asks Hadley to tell him why she likes she likes ...more

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book and I'm officially IN LOVE!! I'm not normally a fan of New Adult books because I'm past the age where I feel like I can relate to the characters.

From the very first page, my heart literally HURT for Ryan. You could feel the pain of his youth and wanted him to be happy.

Hadley isn't a pop princess, diva. She's a real woman, desperate to live a normal life. It was refreshing to see!

I can't wait for this book to come out so I can tell

I'm sorry but I could not relate to this storyline at all. The guy is weeks off from being 18, what's the big deal? So what, who cares?

I loved Heidi's other books but this was way too juvenile for me.

What happens when the boy from the wrong side of town falls for America's sweetheart?

Oh, WOW. Lost in You is going to be so hard for me to review! I went into this thinking I was going to get a simple, sweet love story about a star falling in love with a regular guy. And yes, that does happen, but this book was soooo much more. What really moved this story from sweet and simple to "Holy crap, my heart hurts and how in the heck will this ever work out?" is what I would maybe consider a spoiler,

So this book is quite the Taboo right? A 21 year old woman, falling for a 17 year old boy… Some would say that’s not right. Why though? Guys that are older fall for girls that are younger all the time? Why can’t it be the other way around? So to get personal for just a moment I was dating my now husband when I was a freshman in high school and he was a senior. Nobody seemed to care about this stuff back then… It wasn’t front page news like you see today, what I say is who cares… Love is Love and ...more

Oh god, I really loved this story.. I seriously could not put this book down. So many emotions ran through me I had to go and vent with some book friends about it. This sweet innocent story of two people who find true love when all the odds are stacked against them truly was breathtaking. There is so much angst I was sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading it. All the characters are well developed and the storyline is just brilliant. I am having a hard time getting this

Oh what a great story this was. It tugs at the heart strings and drives you crazy with anticipation and is everything you would want in a blossoming love story.

First, we have Ryan. An unremarkable boy living in a working class town with no real hopes or aspirations other than to get out of that place as soon as he graduates. He doesn't have a lot of self-esteem because his parents, and in particular his father, are some ultra conservative bigots and don't allow Ryan to take part in all the

This was definitely a different kind of romance! There are so many things that I want to say about the story, but I feel as if I will be giving too much away. Let's just say this is a First Love/Reunion story all wrapped into one, and I really enjoyed the roller coaster ride!

As far as heroes go, well...Ryan Stone is MIGHTY fine, if I do say so myself. I have a big place in my heart for the loner heroes, the outcasts, and that is Ryan, not that he isn't SOOO crush worthy, (See Dylan), but he

Ugh so I almost really loved this book, however a few things messed everything up for me. Without giving too much away, one was the best friend Dylan. I couldn't stand her! Such an annoying shit! The second thing was what he gave to Dylan and not to Hadley wjen he turned 18. That about ruined it all. Then the time lapse was insane. I mean out of the blue it's 4 years later?!?!?! 4 YEARS? I mean one would have been plenty! That just made the ending, although happy, really suck! That pretty much ...more

I hate and love what heidi did to her characters. as much as I hated what happened, it was very necessary for ryan and Hadley. they needed to be apart to grow as individuals in order to become the people they were meant to be. that being said...I still hated that bit. once again heidi knocked it out of the ball park.

I loved Heidi's other book but I just couldn't relate to this at all. The characters were too immature and the story just didn't feel real.

Really liked Forever My Girl, really didn't like this one. Didn't feel the romance in the relationship and thought it dragged on and on. Glad for the HEA but couldn't really care by the end.

Oh Heidi McLaughlin what are you doing to me, I literally couldn’t close this book until I seen the words The End. Heidi took the normal Rockstar story and changed it into something innocent, passionate and different. I’m pretty sure she let me experience every

Ryan Stone is 17 years old. He doesn't come for the best side of town, his family doesn't have much money, his parents are extremely strict, extremely religious, and his dad is one of those people that expects you to say "how high" when he says jump. Ryan has always done everything he can to keep the peace at home rather than face his dad's wrath. He doesn't have many friends, with the exception of one, and that would be Dylan. Dylan and Ryan have been best friends since elementary school. She ...more

I went into Lost in You expecting one thing and got something COMPLETELY different. And you know what? I really liked it. I thought this would be the regular romance we see all the time. Of course, some things would vary, but overall it wouldn't be too groundbreaking. Instead, this book completely veered off my expected course and made its way into new territory that at first kind of bothered me, but in the end won me over. I REALLY liked this book.

The premise is same old, same old. Boy, girl,

This was another book that was pretty YA for me, but I again ended up liking the story and most of the characters.

Ryan Stone is just a boy in a small town with his future mapped out for him, graduate, stay in the small town and work at the mill just like his dad. However, this isn't what Ryan wants, he sees his parents and wants to do something different. Ryan's parents eat, work and go to church, not much else and they don't have a heck of a lot to do with him. He is a handsome yet shy guy,

WELL Heidi McLaughlin has once again written something YOU all need to get your hands on!

Ryan Stone is just a normal kid, well as normal as one can be who just does what he needs to maybe one day get our of Brookfield. Until he meets famous music star, Hadley! Things will change for the both. But will they be looking for the same thing? Will there be love lost, wrong decisions made or will have fate brought two different people together?!!

Loved it! Just loved it! I don’t even l know how to
