Well this was another new author and one of those I went in blind reads. Things We Lost is the first book of the Loving Locksley Series from Shae Banks. I was immediately drawn in by the gorgeous and bold cover. It just screamed “read me!” I must say I was over all pleased with the book and I did enjoy it. I will be back for the next novel in the series and see how things progress. However, this book was just maybe a tad shy of that five star, knock my socks off reads. I kept waiting for that spin or twist that would elevate the story to that level and things stayed relatively fluid and steady from beginning to end. It was a short quick read though so Banks kept it brief and didn’t drag out the usual story line longer than necessary.
Nathalie Johnson never figured she would see Jason Locksley again. He crushed her when he disappeared from her life thirteen years prior to this chance run in she finds herself in. Rather easily she gives into his requests for a second chance, but of course there will be obstacles and old wounds that will need to be healed before they can truly have a chance at true love. Will they ever get their happily ever after? Definitely a solid four-star rainy afternoon read! I look forward to seeing what will come next in the series!
