Serena has learned to live with her past, locking her secrets and nightmares deep inside her. But when her boyfriend of six years abruptly leaves her, she’s catapulted back into pain, nursing a broken heart. When indulging in mountains of chocolate doesn’t work, Serena decides the best way to deal with her shattered heart is to indulge in something else. A rebound . . .

The night she swaps her usual Sprite for tequila, she meets James. The encounter is breathtaking.

Electrifying. And best not repeated.

James is a successful entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. A man who has amassed a fortune by taking risks. A man who has shunned commitment completely, and still does. He’s the exact opposite of Serena. But sometimes opposites attract. Sometimes they give in to burning passion. Sometimes opposites are perfect for each other.

James is everything her damaged soul could want. His kisses are intoxicating, his touch out of this world. He makes her forget. He grants her peace from her pain. But as they grow closer, Serena discovers she isn’t the only one with a past. James carries the scars of a past much darker than hers. One that has left him damaged, hurt, and wary of love. A past that gives him the power to shatter her.

Now James and Serena must find a way to mend one another. Or risk losing each other forever.

Review
An angst-filled romance drives the plot of Layla Hagen's debut novel. It has very typical elements of the genre with the rich, hot guy and the confused, young girl. Together, they just might be perfect despite all their individual imperfections. With pasts that haunt them, they have trouble trusting and moving forward.

There are times when the story takes place too much inside the heroine's mind but just as it's nearly stalling, we jump back into the action again. James and Serena definitely don't have an easy time of it and readers will find themselves reading faster to get to the final conclusion.

You just might find yourself getting LOST IN US. Give it a try. It's a good read.
