Things We Lost (Loving Locksley Book 1) written by Shae Banks is the first book I’ve read by this author. This book had strong characters and the story kept me interested to find out what was going to happen. I wasn’t sure which way this book was going to go but we all secretly hope, second chances turn into a happily ever after.
Nathalie Johnson walked into an interview she was overqualified for. She wanted this new job because she was sick of the commute and had no challenge in her current job. She was hired on the spot. When she is goes out to celebrate with her best friend ( pretty much her only friend ) Haylie she runs right into the last person she expected to see, her ex-boyfriend Jason Locksley, someone she hasn’t seen in thirteen years. She is shocked to see him and wants to hate him for how he hurt her in the past but there’s no way to deny the attraction they still have to each other. Jason keeps showing up begging for a chance to explain and finally, Nat agrees to meet him for coffee and then eventually dinner.
Both Nat and Jase have secrets. When your trying to start over, secrets can ruin any chance you have.
When Nat find out part of Jase’s secret, she automatically thinks the worst and doesn’t let him explain.
When Nat’s past comes creeping into her future, who will she turn to? Will she be able to count of Jase for support? Also the connection between Jase and Nat is crazy. Not sure if I’d be able to handle that kind of pressure. I thought this was a great read and couldn’t seem to put the book down. It was a happy, hopeful read I found myself rooting for this second chance romance.
