Jane Austen meets K-drama in this compulsively readable New Adult novel of movie stars, golden beaches and intense romance.

"Today is not the day I die."

Ari Demos, a half Greek stunt girl, starts her every day with this thought. It's not that her job isn't dangerous, but she's been surfing, training and doing sick water stunts for years. Now, just months after graduating fr

☾WOW! I didn't really know what to expect when I started reading this book because I've never read a book by this author before. Wes and Ari meet on set doing stunts together, this is after he save her from near death experiences time after time...yeah, it's sort of complicated.

4.5 Stars!

Lose Me was my first journey into M.C. Frank words. I didn't know what to expect from it. I have watched the movie but I've never read Pride and Prejudice (Oh don't kill me), but I'm glad I got the chance to experience this story.

The New Adult genre has become very popular these days and while I enjoy reading it, it's true that a lot of them sounds almost the same. So reading Lose Me was refreshing.

“Today is not the day I die.”

Ari Demos, a young stunt actress with a promising start. Weston Spencer, Hollywood’s golden boy (literally, have you seen his hair?). When the two are thrown together for a modern-day adaptation of Pride and Prejudice anything can happen, and it does.



Lose Me by M.C. Frank is a story about overcoming fears, being true to one’s self, and -maybe- finding love along the way.

I gave this book a five star review because it met and exceeded all my expectations. Brilliant mai

New adult literature gets more and more popular these days. While I enjoy this genre in general, there are some things I don’t like about it, and a lot of NA books’ plots sounds basically the same. I was looking for a good, fresh NA story, so when I’ve heard M.C. Frank’s next book will be NA, I had a feeling it will be what I was looking for. I was not disappointed!

I don't really know where to start with this review; there's so much I want to say and it's not all positive. I was very, very disappointed by this book. It had so much potential--when I read the blurb, I thought it sounded different and interesting. I really wanted to read it. But it was all over the place, and not in a good way. It had a good plot, but wasn't well developed. There were too many plot lines that were unfinished, too many characters that were brought into the story that were kind ...more

My first thought upon finishing this book was panic.

How could it be over?! I didn't want it to be over. I wasn't ready to let Ari and Wes go. This book is about so many things; love, loss, friendship, growing up, letting go and the crippling power of a lie.

I'd expected a frolicking love story set on the exotic, sun drenched shores of Corfu. What I got was beyond my greatest expectation. It's about life. The deep ugliness of it and the supreme beauty of it. It made me cry and it made me laugh.

‘Lose Me.’ just left me lost in the book. If you are thinking it is reimagining of Pride and Prejudice which I thought it would be initially, let me tell you it is not. You find little characteristics in characters but this is totally different story. It is fabulous contemporary set in Corfu, Greece, narrated by Ari. The book was about growing up, fighti

If you like NA, romance, and serious character tension, then chances are you are going to love Lose Me.

Set mainly in Greece and featuring a half-Greek stunt girl and a handsome heartthrob actor as the main characters, this is the perfect summer-escape read! You'll be lost in the beautiful scenery and cultural experience of the story as much as you'll find yourself wrapped up in the character dynamics.

This book gave me SO many feelings...not all of them good, but not all of them bad either. I wa

"Except for you pain," he says slowly, "I wouldn't change a thing."

Lose Me. is a new, fresh NA story that won me over with amazing characters, gripping story and swoon worthy romance.

Ari Demos is a young stunt actor, who's about to start her first serious job after finishing high school. She landed a stunt double role in a modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, which is about to be set in beautiful Corfu and starring an extremely popular British actor Wes Spencer, who is almost a real life

Lose Me is emotional, addictive, and beautiful. It will have your soul singing and your heart beating! For fans of powerful contemporary novels with dynamic characters, prepare to lose yourself in Lose Me!

I had to wait an entire 24 hours before writing this review. Why? Because I could not put in to words how much I adored this book! I still don’t believe I’ll be able to do it justice, but let’s give it a go!

POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD!

I read the first half of Lose Me in a day, I was swept up in the tension and drama between Wes and Ari, I was waiting just waiting for them to get together, for them to finally admit that they had feelings for the other and was at first frustrated when I was not given that instant gratification. I was frustrated at the prideful way Ari was acting, the way Wes could easily be the same.

This is an amazing twist on a contemporary Pride and Prejudice story. I connected with the main character, Ari, right away. Her voice is so real and she feels so much. Wes portrays the broken, stuck up, popular guy perfectly and the glimpses the reader gets, along with Ari, beyond his walls are so delicious.
Then, once I had fallen in love with the characters, my heart was shredded - to pieces!! Lose Me. ran the whole crazy roller coaster of feelings and left me breathless and even more in love!!

"I wouldn't change anything. Not even the pain".

M.C. Frank has done it again, with her unique and intense take on first love and personal hardship. Ari and Wes are well met from their very first meeting; the latter being the hot British actor who makes his fans swoon, and the former an unconventional, Grecian stunt girl trying to make a career for herself. But conflict seems to follow the two of them wherever they go, and they must learn to find strength within themselves in order to appreciate

First of all, thank you to M.C. Frank for sending me an ecopy of her novel in exchange of an honest review. It was a pleasure to discover your writing and your world!

This novel has been recommended to me when the author was looking for beta readers. It was introduced as a 'Pride and Prejudice' contemporary and if you know me well you already know that I love Jane Austen's works so I couldn't leave this opportunity behind. Indeed, I really appreciated this reading. I love how the writing is easy

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

When I first heard about this book I was intrigued, I've always had a fascination with stunt performers. I did like certain aspects of this book but overall I didn't love it. There were parts that were a bit slow and a little difficult to get through. Although, I did like how much the characters clearly cared for each other and their desire to be together. And I liked the strong family dynamic that Ari had with her family. And Ol

Wow!! This is an excellent fun read

This story took me to a Greek Island called Corfu. A tale about two young female and male who literally fall for one another. This love story takes us on a journey about life, love, loss and forgiveness. A hot hunky actor who didn't want to fall for the stunt girl but ends up saving her life more then once. And she has to fight and figure how to handle the what ifs? I enjoyed this read.

I’ve had the privilege of receiving an ARC of this book before it being released. You cannot understand how much I’ve waited for this book. I am a huge fan and supporter of M C Frank, she is an incredibly talented author and it can only make me so sad that her books are not that popular.

I am not a huge fan of contemporary novels, but this book is a miracle, it touched a sensitive chord in my heart. Loved the entire idea plotted behind the story: you have to save yourself. No matter how much some

My reviews are first published on [a cup of tea and an armful of books].

When a book starts with Today is not the day I die, you know you’re in for a roller coaster of emotions. Lose Me. is a lovingly written story about the complications life throws at you, first loves, and moving forward with your dreams. Ari is a stuntwoman with her first job coming up: a movie loosely based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. She’ll be doing most of the stunts for the female lead, a prospect she’s equally n

I do not like writing negative reviews, but I want to account for my rating. I know a lot of people love this book, and I suppose I would have loved it too, had I been able to suspend my disbelief well enough. I cannot really explain my opinion without spoilers, so the rest is behind the cut. There will be a lot about what I disliked, but also about some things I loved.

From the synopsis, I thought this was going to be an easy swoon-worthy romance with obstacles here and there. Now that I'm finished, I was completely wrong. Ari Demos starts her day off with "Today is not the day I die." Ari, stunt performer, is more than meets the eye. Her story is deeper than the Corfu sea and having the ability to read it was both heartbreaking and touching.

What I admired in Lose Me was the family dynamic and the international location, Greece. I love reading about strong f

Received in exchange for a honest review.

I have read a few modern retellings of different authors lately and this one is the best I have seen. That isn’t to say there aren’t flaws. All retellings and characters do but this one surpasses the modern retellings I have seen thus far. Why? It keeps to the spirit of Austin. The message and concept that Austin was portraying and wanting to reach us in Pride and Prejudice is seen here. It isn’t lost in the story or eclipsed by anything. That message is

“Today is not the day I die.”
This is the thought that Ari Demos starts with each day. Being a stunt girl is a dangerous line of work, thankfully she’s had her whole life in Greece to prepare for the job of her dreams. Surfing, training and intense water stunts are only a small portion of her work, but when a stunt job comes up shortly after graduation, a modern movie adaption of Pride and Prejudice, Ari jumps on the chance to prove her worth. Immersing herself in more training Ari suffers an acc

What I love most about M.C. Frank's writing is her style. In a word, it's beautiful. It flows so elegantly, without being unnecessarily verbose.  She immediately draws you to the beautiful Greek island of Corfu, making you feel as if you're actually there, watching the waves and breathing in the salty air. There's such a love for the place that it drips from every word.

Can I just say that even though I expected this book to be good, it still took me by surprise how much I enjoyed reading it!
Our main character is Ari, a stunt girl, how freaking cool is that? I've got to admit that she's a bit annoying at times but it's completely understandable! She has to go through so much! I love her relationships with other characters, the friends she makes along the way, the way her values develop and change. By the end of the book I just wanted to hug her real tight.
