Title: Lucas – A Preston Brothers Novel #1
Author: Jay McLean
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.
As a big fan of Jay McLean, I know that Lucas is going to be good. However, I didn’t expect Lucas to be THAT INTENSE!
I love a good childhood friends-turned-lovers stories so I was excited about this. Lucas and Laney are two extremely likeable characters. There is no way you wouldn’t fall for these two and their relationships. They are always there for each other through every stage of their lives – be it good or bad. Laney has always loved Lucas and if she could only be his friends, she would be there for him. As long as she can be around him.
Their story turned complex once they navigate high school relationships. I don’t think I can talk about what happened without spoiling all of you. But it was INTENSE. I smiled, I cried, I felt anxious for both of them. I just want the two to be fine and together happily ever after.
I can very safely say now that Jay McLean is one hell of a writer. I’m a huge fan of her More Than series. However, I didn’t expect her to manage to write another heart-wrenching story. Also, to me Lucas feels more intense than her More Than series stories. Definitely a must read for everyone!
