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.
Both characters were so perfect. The glimpse we got into a younger Lois and Lucas was just too much. I wish I could be more eloquent, but I was reading with a smile perpetually on my face. The story and characters was sweet but the thing that made this book for me was the background. Having the background knowledge on Lucas’ family, and little glimpses into Lucy’s life, marriage and the previous characters, was what made this book so awesome. I felt like I was catching up with an old friend and was devouring every aspect of their current life. LOL
Jay McLean, you don’t disappoint. The writing was classic/vintage Jay style and I had missed it. It has those LOL moments that make a book fantastic…….. Like when Lucas pulls her chair out but then looks down her dress to look at her cleavage (I’m a gentleman and a dude) I died laughing. Just died!!
Would I recommend it to my friends? Heck YES! I know it is a standalone, and will read ok that way, however, I think people that have read the previous series(More than) will appreciate it more.
……and I’ve never been more in love with her than I am at this moment, with the sun setting, her dark hair in that braid I love She’s here. With. me For me. Finally. And then she laughs and this time, reality doesn’t shift. Doesn’t change. Because reality is perfect. She’s perfect. We’re going to be perfect Laney. You’ll see.
