In a sprint, every millisecond counts.
When you’re waiting for love, those milliseconds can feel like eons.
High school senior Lucas Preston has it all: star of the track team, a scholarship waiting for him, an apartment to himself and a revolving door of girlfriends. He also has an older sister, five younger brothers and a father who relies on him to make sure those brothers don’t kill each other.
His saving grace? Lois “Laney” Sanders, a girl he started to fall in like with when he was just eleven.
A girl who became his best friend, his confidant, his courage.
It took only sixteen clicks and eight seconds for Lucas to realize that his like for Laney had turned into love.
Eight life-changing seconds.
It’s also the exact length of time it took to lose her.
I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this book to be published.
Why ?? Well, because it was written by one of my favorite authors and because it’s a spinoff from one of my favorite series, which includes my all time favorite book…. “More than forever”.Not only is this a spinoff, but it’s about Lucas…Lucy’s brother!!! I was pretty sure this book was gonna be awesome and since I’m always right…it was!!
I loved that it was similar to my favorite book More than Forever (Lucy and Cam) in so many ways.Lucas and Laney (Lois) have been the best of friends since they were 11 years old. Laney’s dad left their mom and started working for Tom, Lucas’ dad. This is how they met.
Lucas is the oldest son of the Preston clan. Lucy is the oldest daughter. Then there is Leo, Logan, Linc, Liam and little Lachlan. They are such an awesome family and I do hope we get a story for all the brothers…This family loses their mom when they are all still young, especially Lachlan. This is not really a spoiler because if you’ve read the previous series, you already know. Lucas really steps up the plate to help his family out in all the ways he can and Lane, she is always right by his side helping him out.
Over time her feelings for him changed….
She wants more from Lucas than to be his best friend, but if that’s all he wants from her, she will make sure she is the best friend ever. She doesn’t know however that his feelings for her changed a long time ago.
Lucas made some stupid mistakes. I didn’t fault him for this because he was still young and had to learn so much. When they find out about each other’s true feelings, they have to decide if they want to risk their friendship and be who they were meant to be…a match made in heaven.
I’m not gonna say anything more about the storyline.
I think everyone should just read it and find out for themselves…This book made me laugh, cry, swoon and even curse. I loved every single page. We even got some short appearances from Jake, Logan and of course Lucy and Cam, who are still my favorite couple.
For those who haven’t read the “More than” series, don’t worry. This can be read as a stand alone, although I don’t know why anyone would want to skip those books…Last, of all, I want to plead with this author to please write books about all the brother. I’m actually very curious about Logan. I would absolutely love to read his story, but of course, I would read about all of them!!
5 Very well deserved stars from me!!!
