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

Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

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

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..

WELL ISN’T THAT CUTE BUT IT’S WRONG!
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.
Her new life seems perfect.

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. ;)

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

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?

Questa lettura non mi ha soddisfatta proprio per niente.
La trama prometteva bene e le mie aspettative erano piuttosto alte, lo ammetto. Mi aspettavo un thriller psicologico di quelli che ti tengono col fiato sospeso nell'attesa di scoprire che sta succedendo, invece mi sono ritrovata a leggere un libro che di thriller non aveva proprio nulla.
I protagonisti vengono dipinti praticamente come dei santi, poi salta fuori che forse lei non lo è poi così tanto, visto il numero di segreti che ha. Ma inv

I'll start off by saying I'M NOT A FAN OF LOVE TRIANGLES.
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

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.

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.

As Hanna begins to re-immerse herself with her family

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.

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?

Holy duck lovin' cliffhangers, Batman!
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. But then there is also the mysterious Nate, who she can’t remember at all but seems

Hmmm...it 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.

This book is hard to categorize. The steam factor is low but the suspense factor is high. I almost gave up on it but it kept nagging me so I finished. I am glad I did. I will definitely be reading book 2 to find out what happens with the MASSIVE cliffhanger!

C'è stato un periodo in cui il mio migliore amico, alias Goodreads, mi raccomandava in continuazione la serie Here and Now di Lexi Ryan però, trattandosi di un NA, io lo ignoravo sempre ▬ anche perché le cover originali non è che mi facciano impazzire più di tanto... sono okay. Poi ho saputo che Lost in me sarebbe arrivato in Italia e, quando ho visto che avrebbe esordito nella collana Book me della DeAgostini, la stessa in cui è stato pubblicato La ragazza del 6E di A.R.
