Lainie and Jax dated briefly in high school. After a situation at home Laine had to leave and never came back. They reconnect 10 years later and Lainie's pay comes back to haunt her. Jax and Laine are on the run now as they try to outsmart the killer. The story was good but I felt it was a little too rushed. I would have liked the author to slow it down so I could feel more of a connection. Jax and Lainie have been separated for 10 years and I wanted more one on one time of them getting reconnec

Okay, I bought this book directly from the author I am darn glad I did. And to continue the honestly, I breezed this this book once before but this time I read it as if it was the last book I would ever read.

This story brings us into contact with Jackson, aka Jax, McKenna who is the epitome of the word "Jock". He has everything but the other star of the story, Lainie, real name Elaine Wilson, the epitome of word "nerd" except one, she is a beauty. the two meet when Jax gets himself in trouble an

This was such a good story. I read through it in just a few hours, unable to put it down. Lainie and Jax were acquaintances in high school, until Lainie's stepfather attacked her and she disappeared for her safety. Jax is a wounded detective that has to visit a psychologist before returning to duty. He happens to walk into Elaine's office, and once he realizes it's really her, he isn't letting her go. He takes it upon himself to protect her at all costs.
The story jumps back and forth between the

1 star for DNF

I stopped,after the first chapter. It is so jumpy and just not thought out well. We have dual povs but instead of moving our timeline forward they jump back and start repeating things we already read. Also- there are several details that make no sense. And it's only chapter one.

Example: Jackson barely says,anything in his session yet a whole hour magically flies by? What happened the rest of the time? And- call me crazy- but this bugged me: Jackson ASKED the secretary for help wit

*was gifted a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review*

I liked the story of Laney and Jax. The growing budding relationship of their high school selves. The moment they have to part ways, the hard choices made. Then to have them thrust back together in the oddest of circumstances. It was a great mix of laughs, intensity and love.

For me the story was rushed at times. Then sometimes it felt a little muted. Like something was missing.

As for the audiobook itself, it was good but the

This was a quick and suspenseful romance that will have you at the edge of your seat. I liked the characters Jax and Laine were very likable. A story of young love that was interrupted by tragedy. A second chance romance that is foreshadowed with danger from the past.
I did feel that some of the emotional parts of this book were resolved to quick, I would have preferred to see a more natural way for their feelings to be resolved. It felt as if there was a rush to get to the next scene. Overall

Invisible is a romantic suspense thriller about Detective Jax McKenna, who is reunited with his first love Lainie after ten years apart. However, their reunion is short-lived when some bad guys from the past hunt down the couple.

This is a short read, you could probably finish it in a few days. The book switches back and forth between Jack and Lainie’s POV. It also has flashbacks to the couple’s time in high-school, showing how they met and how their trouble with the bad guys began.

There are times when a book has the perfect title and this is one! Lainie is Jax's tutor in high school and even though complete opposites, they briefly date. When she is attacked by her stepfather, she disappears and goes under a new identity. Now 10 years later, Jax enters her office, and realizes it is her. He is not going to let her go this time. When she is now being sought out, will he be able to protect her? I love romances that have a history. LA Remenicky gives us flashbacks from now ba ...more

The plot was thin, inconsistent and jumped around waaaaay too much. And the threat here is that Lanie's step-dad is the top of a big drug ring, but he has no money and steals her tip money to buy a $10 case of beer, yet he has all of these people working for him to hunt down Lanie for turning him in..

Not buying it. Sorry.

Invisible was a good read by L.A. Remenicky. Jax is a detective who goes to see a psychologist. He never expected that the doctor would strongly resemble the woman he loved Lainie. Lainie disappeared 10 years ago after her and Jax had a first date that ended in violence. Jax would have never believed that Dr. Elizabeth is really his Lainie. They both go on the run in order to keep Lainie safe. As the killer threatens their lives, they grow closer. I really enjoyed reading Jax and Lainie’s story ...more

Great read!

Jax and Lainie’s story started out as young love and tragedy separated them for 10 years. Circumstances brought them together again but past dangers threatened to keep them apart. This story is also about finding yourself in the midst of life altering changes. Invisible is well written and details how people can be self conscious about scars physically and emotionally. Loved it!

Loved this story!

Loved everything about this story so much. It took a little bit of time for me to get used to the writing style. I'm a fan of both POV being used, but not used to them both being given over many of the same parts. Once I got used to it, loved seeing them both. Jax and Elaine both deserved their happily ever after finally, it was a long time coming.

Happy ending

This book was a very nice romance novel. I really liked the way that Lannie and Jax found each other years later and were brought back together. Sweet love story.

So this book is about Lainies the uber school nerd who is hiding behind baggy pants and huge nerd glasses from the world. She wants to be "invisible" from the world becaue things at home are not so great. Then there is Jax who is the untimate school jock. Girls are all over him and he loves it.

Invisible starts off with a really interesting premise. Told in the first person, we first meet Elizabeth Parker and she’s a psychologist whose next patient is a man from her past, Jax McKenna, a detective injured while on duty. He tells her that she reminds him of someone from his past, and that’s because Elizabeth is really Elaine “Lainie” Wilson, and it’s been ten years since they’ve last seen each other when their first date ended in violence at the hands of Lainie’s drug boss stepfather.

There was a thriller side to this book and I really enjoyed that! It was a great combo of the genre's I like! I Also like how we got to see the background of Jax And Lainey's story, it was so in depth and a great background to the present day.

The only thing I have negative to say about this book is that is was short and sweet. If you are looking for a quick read then this is it.

Elaine Wilson wanted nothing more than to be invisible to her step father until she left for college, and she was most of the time. Being extremely smart, the principal asks for her help to tutor Jackson McKenna. Agreeing to help him with his grades was an easy task until feelings came int

Invisible is about Elaine and Jax. They both knew each other from high school and after Elaine is asked to tutor Jax in Geometry, Jax asked her out on a date which she is really happy about. The incident that happened after the date changed Elaine's life forever and that was her step dad Keith. After coming home from her date with Jax, Keith lays in to Elaine and beats her with a baseball bat and she ends up in hospital with Keith being arrested. She has to disappea

I love second chances of any kind. A good had her/him and lost her/him and then found them again is probably one of my favorite types of stories.

And that's just what this one is!


Add a super nerdy girl and a jock who eventually fall for one another and you have a book that I'm happy to read!

Lainey doesn't have the easiest life. On top of a horrible family life, her social life is non-existant. She's a nerdy, quiet girl who is basically a social outcast.

We've all heard of high school romances. This is not one of those. Oh, Jax and Laini fell for each other in high school, however not many have gone through what they did to have it end so horribly. Ten years later Jax, (the Jock) is now an honored Detective undergoing his physc release evaluation. Who is his Doctor? None other than the long lost girl friend he has never forgotten. The disguise might have worked if she hadn't received a threat from the monster who separated them so long ago. Onc ...more
