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 fr ...more

OMFG that ending!!!! What the hell Lexi Ryan? Why did you give us readers that ending? Omg! This book kept me on the edge in anticipation the whole read. I wanted so badly to like Max, but from the get go I didn't like or trust him. I don't know why but after finding out about Meredith I knew my dislike of him was totally justified! What a slime! I really really hope Hanna doesn't end up with his bitch ass! On the other hand I really liked Nate from the start. I did get annoy

Okay, so that ending was ridiculous. I'm so glad that I'm reading this book now and not when the other books weren't published yet. That cliffhanger needs a resolution NOW!

Hanna wakes up in the hospital, not remembering anything from the last year of her life. Right away, I knew that something shady was just beyond her memory. She's wearing an engagement ring, signifying that her lifelong crush on Max finally led somewhere, but I was so confused by her actions. I didn't trust Max (and later foun

I absolutely LOVED Hanna's story, it captivated me until the very last page, trying to piece together her past and which man was right for her. I'm going on the record as Team Nate, and I can't wait to see what happens in book 2. A phenomenal read!

I really enjoyed this book.
It had secrets, passion, scandal, and mystery.
Hanna has woken up in the hospital with amnesia. I know what you’re thinking oh god here we go. Predictable..

She has woken up 50 pounds lighter, engaged to the man she has had a crush on since she was 13. A bakery owner and Distanced from her twin sister and can’t remember the Dr who is looking after her.
She has lost the last 11 months of her life.

Oh man, what to say about Lexi Ryan's "Lost in Me"? This was a better book than I expected it to be for the cliches provided and the category (New Adult), but I still wasn't enamored with it and had more issues than not in the aftermath, considering.

This is the first book I've ever read by Lexi Ryan, and I'll say that her writing style is compulsively readable and she does have a command over an eye for detail and character development (though with caveats). "Lost in Me" follows the journey of H
This story kept me guessing, right to the end. I completely changed my opinion of both of the guys in this love triangle, and then changed it again. Up until the last 10% or so, I was completely smitten with this story. Then, the ending royally pissed me off! WTF? I wanted to throw my iPad across the room! Aargh! I can't hit either Max or Nate, no matter how much I want to. Instead, I'm buying the second book STAT while I flip them off in my head. ;)

Hanna is the fat twin, the fat friend, and has been in lust with Max since she was 13. But Max has eyes for her twin Lizzie. One night she's at the bar wishing Max could like her back. The next minute, she's in a hospital bed, engaged to Max and cant remember a damn thing....

This book really had me going. I didnt know what to think, who to believe, what memory to believe. I had so many WTF happen moments. But that was the fun part of this book, also keeping me on my toes, on the edge of thinking

Recommends it for: If you like a mystery with your romance...
This was a rather interesting one...yet I'm not sure I'll continue with the series. This was almost more mystery than romance, and it took a long time to unfold. The reason? The heroine (Hanna)has amnesia (suffered after an accident--or was it?). So the last year has become a blur to her. When she wakes up in the hospital, she has an engagement ring on her finger, and she's engaged to her childhood crush (Max). How did that happen? And how did she lose almost 50 pounds?

Since signing up for the cover reveal a few months ago, I have been really looking forward to reading this book. I was expecting this to be a good one and I wasn't disappointed. What an AMAZING story! I couldn't put it down for even a second.

I had the suspicion of this book being the case but I still bought it. (Yes, entirely my fault)
In my defense, I was lured by all the good reviews. Anyway...
I want to say I liked the writing, it's smooth and entertaining.
But Hannah... Oh this chick drove me nuts. She wants Nate but she's engaged to Max.
Perhaps it's me but I can't stand it when the lead heroine is indecisive.
I have to say I'm probably Team Nate but who knows? Maybe she'l

I love it, but no 5 stars because of the @$*&%#%#@ cliffy.

I had to put it down several times because I wasn't sure it I wanted to finish it. One girl messing with two guys at the same time. Once you push past that the holes because of the amnesia start to get filled in, and I start rooting for the tatted rocker instead of the finacee. Then we get hit with a cliffy ... ARGH!

This book contains so much sex, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! I read this book easily in a few hours, and I thought the story was super intriguing with the amnesia aspect (it reminded me of the movie The Vow). If you don't like love triangles, then you probably wouldn't enjoy this book, but I really liked how this story came together and how you really didn't know which guy to cheer for. The ending was a cliff hanger though, so can't wait for the next book to be released!

2.5 This is not a genre I usually read so I know I am in the minority of reviews here. All I can say is that I'm glad that it was short. The main story could have been done without all the sex scenes, that weren't even technically sex. A girl wakes up from a coma and is missing over a year of her life. She is thin and engaged to the man of her dreams, and is still a virgin, or is she?

What a twisty-turny story.

Lost in Me starts off with quite a strong flame, Hanna waking up in a hospital bed with no memory of most of the past year. No memory of dating the guy she has had a lifelong crush on. No memory starting her own business. Certainly no memory of getting engaged.

But waking to an engagement ring on your finger must mean your engaged. Or, maybe not.

Hanna has never been a girl secure in her own skin. She's always seen herself as the least attractive twin, the less desirab

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.

i was freaken HOOKED!!
What an awesome book!
This book brings back some memories. No, nothing that personal.
It is just when I started reading New Adult I have read many books like these; angst, drama, ridiculous plotline, unlikable characters and yup freaking cherry on the top love triangle. It was a way too late to stop reading this when I learned that this is a part of a trilogy with the same couple or three-person drama and yeah you guessed it I am that curious cat who has to read all of it now.

Hanna has amnesia. She wakes up one day and she doesn't remember the last months of her life.
So imagine her surprise when she finds out that she is engaged to Max. He has been her crush since forever.
And not only that. Apparently, she is having an affair!! With a rock star!!! Hanna starts to wonder how was her relationship with Max. If she was having an affair, something was wrong, right?

Lost in Me kept me up reading into the wee hours of the morning. I couldn't put the book down until I reached 'The End', and even then I didn't want to! What an amazing start to a new series, I cannot wait for book two. I am seriously having withdrawal jitters already, how can I be expected to wait until June?! It's impossible I tell 'ya!

I am pretty sure that I start every review of a Lexi Ryan book off with words to the effect of “I LOVE LEXI RYAN!” I can say that without checking, because EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I read one of her books I just want more. More of the sexy men she creates, more of the sexy scenes those men are in, more of the angst, drama, and emotion that flows through her stories. JUST. MORE.

Lost in Me is different to other books I’ve read lately, heck I think it’s safe to say it’s different to anything I’ve read

This is the first book in a 3 part series, so yes it does end with a cliff-hanger and it’s a pretty big one. I can’t wait for next book in June.
The story is about Hanna, who has just woke up after an accident to find she can’t remember anything from the last year of her life. She is now engaged to Max a man she always thought was out of reach. She also has lost a lot of weight and has the body she always wanted.

Lexi Ryan - Lost In Me Review

Firstly I have to say Lexi Ryan never disappoint, I love this book and enjoy reading it a lot.

First, we meet Hanna the heroine of the book, she wakes up in a hospital and can't remember the last years of her life. She confuses as to what happened to her and now she has to piece together the year she misses and finds things as not what she remembers like...
Why is there an engagement ring on her finger?
How is Max her fiance now?
Why has she lost so much weight?

Shelves: 2014-read was okay, but all the secrets were a little much. And sorry, even if I was in love with someone for so long and I woke up in a hospital having no memory of being engaged to him or much less even DATING him ...I wouldn't be planning our wedding for six weeks later. There were too many things in the book that were just so far fetched. At the same time, I would like to see what happens next. Feeling conflicted on this one.

I REALLY liked this one. Very addictive and intriguing storyline. I was kept in suspense the entire time. It took all my willpower not to read the last page, which ended up leaving me hanging on a cliff. Moving on the next book. So glad all three books are already out! I can crack out on this series without the long wait in between books.

Highly recommend if you don't mind love triangles.
