The last thing I remember is having drinks at Brady’s and trying to avoid eye-contact with my life-long crush—the gorgeous, unattainable Maximilian Hallowell. They tell me that was a year ago, but I have no memories of anything since then. What I do have is this ring on my finger that Max says he gave me, and this much-thinner body I’ve dreamed of most of my life. Aside from a case of retrograde amnesia, everything seems almost...perfect.
But the deeper I immerse myself into this new world of mine—planning a wedding to a man I don't remember dating, attempting to run a business I don't remember starting—the clearer it becomes that nothing is as it seems. Do I have the life I’ve always wanted or is it a facade propped up by secrets I don't even know I have?
I need answers before I marry Max, and the only person who seems to have them is the angry, tatted, sexy-as-sin rocker Nate Crane. And Nate wants me for himself.
Lost in Me is the first book in the Here and Now series, a spin-off of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Hope series. This sexy amnesia love triangle is intended for mature readers. It is not a standalone novel, as the story continues in Here and Now #2, Fall to You, releasing in June.

I am pretty sure that I start every review of a Lexi Ryan book off with words to the effect of “I LOVE LEXI RYAN!” I can say that without checking, because EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I read one of her books I just want more. More of the sexy men she creates, more of the sexy scenes those men are in, more of the angst, drama, and emotion that flows through her stories. JUST. MORE.
Lost in Me is different to other books I’ve read lately, heck I think it’s safe to say it’s different to anything I’ve read before. Like the blurb says it’s a sexy amnesia love triangle and it kept me on the edge of my seat. It takes a special book for me to read until I’m done and Lost in Me was one of those books. Who cares that I’m meant to be packing for my family of five to go away for the weekend? Not me when there’s a Lexi Ryan book to be read!
I have wanted to know more about the side characters in the New Hope series since meeting them in Unbreak Me. Hanna is the first one we get to know more about. Right before the story started she had an accident – one that she doesn’t remember – that landed he in hospital with amnesia. She doesn’t remember the last 11 months of her life but she wakes up to see an engagement ring on her finger – and it wasn’t there 11 months ago! Now, if she’s to make sense of it all she has some serious work to go to get back those missing memories.
Hanna’s story sucked me in from the start. There was so much I wanted to know, I felt like I was there with Hanna as she tried to work it all out! How did she fall and lose her memory? Was it an accident? Was she pushed? Can Max, her new fiancé, be trusted? Who’s Nate Crane and what does he have to do with things? Was her life really as perfect as it seems? SO. MANY. QUESTIONS!! It wasn’t just a mystery story though – it wouldn’t be a Lexi Ryan story with a little naughtiness! I’m happy to report that there was plenty and IT. WAS. HOT!! Ha! Thanks, Lexi! *wipes brow*
One thing I have to mention is that this book ends on a MAJOR cliffhanger! I knew that before going in to it and it didn’t bother me. If you don’t like cliffhangers you have been warned! There’s not long to wait for book #2 though, it’s being released at the beginning of June. I say DIVE IN to Lost in Me right now, you might need that month or so until Fall to Me to recover anyway!
I thoroughly recommend Lost in Me (and any other Lexi Ryan book for that matter) and I CANNOT wait for Fall to Me so I can carry on with Hanna’s story as she pieces her life back together.
