Review: Lost by Layla Hagen


**Lost is a prequel novella to Lost in Us and can be read before or after. **

Whatever might help him forget his past and numb the pain, James has tried it all: booze, car races, fights, and then some. Especially women. College offers plenty of opportunities for everything. . . Especially when you have a trust fund to spend.

Serena spirals deeper and deeper into a hurricane of pain. But no matter how far she falls, there’s no redemption from the overwhelming guilt.

Two souls consumed by their pasts fight to learn how to survive. But all hope seems to be lost.

Until they meet each other.


In my personal opinion, this book should be read before Lost In Us because half of the book is a “peek” into Lost In Us. That aside, I really enjoyed getting some background information on Serena and James. I love seeing how their brains worked and what exactly makes them tick, why they act the way the do but I wish it could have been longer. I wanted to know more about James and Natalie and the complexity of their relationship. I wanted to hear about the actual fall out between Serena and Michael, not just that they broke up. I wanted to know the gruesome details behind their breakup.

So this book was an answer to some questions but definitely not a must read. Considering its currently free on Amazon, it would be the perfect book to read to see if you would like Lost In Us…unless you like Contemporary Romances in which case I think you would definitely like Lost In Us.
